Smarty Pants

Micah is a smarty pants. Today, when I picked him up from preschool, his teacher told me that at snack time, Micah was teaching all the kids how to say, "eat" and "thank you" in sign language. I taught Micah some signs when he was a baby, and now I am teaching them to Abby. Micah loves it and helps me teach Abby. I just thought this was so cute and that our blog readers would get a kick out of it too.

Bear Heath Garner

Micah says the cutest things. When you ask him his name, he will proudly exclaim, "Micah Heath Garner"! Well, the other day, he was carrying this teddy bear all over, so I asked him if his bear had a name. He looked at me, thought for a second and said, "Bear Heath Garner"!
Here is a picture of Micah with Bear Heath Garner.

This is a picture of one of the projects Micah made at Preschool. It is a picture of a large hand and then he painted his own hand, so that it looks like his hand is on top of the larger hand. He made it for Heath for Father's Day. He was so proud of it that he gave it to Heath the day he made it. He just couldn't wait until Father's Day.

I know this isn't a very good picture, but I just had to post it because it is so cute. This is a picture of a bookmark Micah made in nursery. He gave it to Heath for Father's Day. Seeing Micah make these cute little things and get so excited about them is really cute.

Here is Abby posing for a picture. She was particularly smiley this day, so I had to snap a shot. Doesn't she have the cutest smile and the most beautiful blue eyes?

We had a load of top soil brought in so we could put in a garden. We let Micah play in it for a couple of days before Heath spread it onto the garden. He had so much fun playing in the dirt. He would go from the dirt to the swimming pool to the trampoline over and over again. He loves playing outside and has been out so much this summer that he looks like a little Indian. He is so dark and tan.

This is a picture of our own little Napoleon Dynamite. Micah loves his snow boots and is constantly putting them on.

Micah's First Day of Pre-school & Abby is a Fashionista!

Micah started preschool last week. He goes twice a week, on Tuesday's and Thursday's. His teacher is Miss Stephanie and he loves her!. Last week, Micah learned about Father's Day and Flag Day. Each day, he came home with cute little projects that he had made. He was so proud of them. As we drove home each day, Micah would tell me about his day and all the fun things he had done. He loves it so much that he wakes up every day and asks to go to school.
Here is a picture I took just before we left for Micah's first day. I can't believe my baby is 3-years-old and is going to preschool. When I dropped him off the first day, I got a little teary. I was so excited for him to have the opportunity, but it got to me that he's growing up and doing things on his own. If I had this hard of a time with preschool, I don't even want to think about Kindergarten. :)

Abby and Grandpa. Abby definitely has grandpa's chin.

I just love this picture. Too cute!

Abby and Grandma. This picture, as well as the ones with grandpa, were taken last week just before they left to go back to Annabella. Abby and Micah were so sad to see them go.

Every time I dress Abby in something new, I think it's her cutest outfit. She has so many clothes and looks adorable in all of them. Here are a few pics of our little Fashionista, Abigail Valerie Garner.

Lauren took this picture last weekend. Can you believe how cute Abby is? Thanks, Lauren for capturing this moment with your amazing eye.

Adorable! Heath thinks this picture gives us a glimpse of what Abby will look like as she grows up.


Even cuter!

Abby loves to play. She likes this toy because it makes all sorts of noise. The more noise, the better for her.

Micah and Abby playing together. I missed the exact shot here, but Micah was being so cute with Abby. He had her laughing hysterically.

We take a lot of walks together. Here are Micah and Abby in the stroller together. Micah likes to ride this way because he feels like he is holding Abby.

Here is a picture of Micah and Zoey. They were playing ghosts this day. They wrapped up in blankets and chased each other all over the house.

We've Been Having Lots of Fun!

Sorry it's been so long since I've updated our blog. I didn't realize that it had been so long since my last update. I got an email from a friend in Seattle telling me that she checks our blog everyday and that she was getting anxious to see some new pics. So, these are for her! We're so glad to have such good friends and family that take the time to read our blog. Now, if we could just get a few of you to sign the guestbook. :)

We went to Rexburg, ID over Memorial Day weekend to visit Heath's side of the family. It was a really nice trip, but it rained the whole time. Heath was really looking forward to golfing with his brothers and dad, but they ended up getting rained out. It was still fun getting to visit with family. Micah and Abby had a blast too.
Here is a picture of Abby playing in the Lego wagon. She loved being pulled around in this thing.
Here are Micah and Ethan watching a movie. As you can see, they are both in their pajamas. I think this picture was taken close to 10:00 p.m. and they were still going strong.
This is uncle Jeremy. He's a great uncle and he is really good to Micah and Ethan. Micah calls him, "Mermy."

Here is Abby in the new outfit that Gammy got her. She looks cute in everything, but we thought this outfit was especially cute on her.

Micah and Jeremy. It's a good thing Jeremy is patient.

Here are Micah, Abby and Zoey. As you can see, Abby and Zoey were twins this day. They look so cute in the outfits that Grandma got them. Zoey comes over to play frequently and we love it.

Here is Micah eating some noodles. I thought it was so funny how he was trying to eat and the noodle was stretched all the way from the plate to his mouth. It's a good thing I got a new camera. I definitely wouldn't have caught this moment with my old one.

Here are Micah and Abby in the swimming pool. They had so much fun. I wish I had a better picture of both of their faces. They laughed and smiled so much it made my face ache just watching them. :)

Our very nice neighbors let us put their "little kids" trampoline in our yard for a few days. It's bigger than an exercise trampoline, but smaller than a full-size one. It's only about 2 feet high, so Micah can climb on and off it easily. Micah and Abby both love it and we have spent tons of time out there. The following pics were taken just this morning.

Doesn't Abby have the cutest smile? It's a combination of daddy and Grandpa Dunn.

Here's Micah sitting on the edge of the tramp. He kept going back and forth between the trampoline and the swimming pool.

I'm getting nervous for when the day comes that we have to give the trampoline back. Micah has enjoyed it so much.

Micah was so sweet with Abby this morning. He picked a dandelion and brought it over to her. He said, "A flower for you, Abby!"
