My Son the Bag Lady

Just when Kendall got out of the "Bag Lady" phase, Carson has started it. You know the phase, take any type of bag or purse and fill it with lots of different random odd things, tote around the house, and then dump and repeat. Carson has been carrying around his "suitcase" for a few days now. He wants to go to Disneyland. The first picture is what he carries inside his suitcase: A rubber glove, a jar opener thingy (the thing you put on a jar to help grip the lid to open it), a car from a cereal box, a Shrek shoe for his Build A Bear teddy, a Thomas train (Fergus), a green arm floatie, and a Princess camera. Go figure!!

As I mentioned, he REALLY wants to go to Disneyland. Since we aren't planning on going anytime soon, he had a great idea:

"I know, we can build a Cars ride in our backyard. We can build Disneyland in our backyard. Then all the people will come: Tigger, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse!!"

Then he realized what usually goes on in our backyard and he turned to our dog Jake and said "Jake, no pooping in Disneyland!!!"

OMG!! You could be describing my daughter! It drives me crazy, and you wouldn't BELIEVE the things we have found days (or months even!) later in all her little purses!

P.S. ADORABLE family!! :)

Count me in. You know I'd go great distances to see Tigger in person. But I'm with Carson, "No pooping in Disneyland, Jake!" LOL It's great to see how well things are going for you and your little family. I'm so happy for you!
