Thats certainly NOT Katie!

Little stinker.... (refer to yesterdays post.) Well today I caught Lacy with a starburst. We keep our candy safely secure in a pot on top of the fridge. I asked Lacy where she got it and she confessed to also eating 2 pieces of pink bubble gum, 2 lollipops, some fruit snacks (we consider those candy), and more starburst. I was so baffled when I went into the un-touched kitchen. I made her show me how she got them and this is what I witnessed. I was so angry, yet sooo amazed.

It reminded me of a story Shawn's family always tells of when they lost Shawn when he was only 2 years old. The whole family was frantically looking all over the house and neighborhood for their sweet boy to find him sitting quietly on top of the fridge watching all the commotion. Who would have thought to look UP for a 2 year old?? Well like father like daughter... the little monkey climbs right up like its the easiest thing in the world. AHHHH... what am I going to do with her!?!?!

At least some happiness came when the dark clouds rolled in yesterday and brought us some much needed moisture. We went for a walk in the sprinkling rain and then went to Kelly's house for some yummy ice cream sandwiches. When we left their house it was pouring. Hugo loved the rain! IT makes me so happy, because I do too!! We had a super fun walk home with his hands in the air looking up in wonder giggling at one of the mysteries of the falling water coming from seemingly no-where. Can you imagine witnessing rain for the first time on your face. The sweet innocece of children. I loved so much this tiny experience, my boy is such a sweetheart!

You know you are an Arizona native when the happiest moment of the week comes hand in hand with dark black clouds rolling in from the southeast promising a heavy load of moisture to pour all over your clean car, dirt pile in the back yard and strait hair... I love monsoon season!

I had to show Brett the pictures of Lacy. Carson has tried to scale the fridge too. Maybe it is a three year old thing. She is a determined little girl. The story is too funny. I am glad you shared it!

That Lacy! I just love the story of Hugo and the rain. I remember being in grade school in Phx and on rain days we got out of school early, we walked home and the water would be up to our knees. No kidding. There were no storm drains then and the street always flooded. I loved rain days!
