The cutest pumpkin ever! This picture makes her look even longer than she already is.
Apparently she was done being tormented by her parents. But thanks to Cambri her daddy won the pumpkin carving contest.
All the excitement tired out our little Eeyore.

A few nights ago Cambri was hanging out in her Bumbo chair while watching Nate do the dishes. She found everything he did hilarious. At one point all he did was pull some tupperware out of the cupboard and she starting giggling so loud. I decided I wanted to be a part of the fun. I went over and started singing songs and making faces at her (pretty much the same things Nate was doing to her). And the response I got?...She just opened her mouth as big as she could and tried to eat me. She again looked over at Nate and started giggling. I try again...same thing. Leans towards me and tries to eat me. This went on for a while. Nate and I are laughing at this point because it is obvious that Cambri has figured out that Daddy is the funny one and Mommy is the one that gives her food. If she wasn't so darn cute about it I might feel bad that her dad is so much better at making her laugh. Apparently I am doing my job of providing the food. So many of the people we meet say "wow she likes her food!"

For those of you who don't know, my mom died almost 19 years ago. Somedays I can't believe it has been that long. As time has passed it isn't painful to think about her. Rather I love remembering her any way I can. I still see her through the eyes of a 7 year old. Which means I place her on a pedistal. A few memories I do have of her are being a room mother at school. I remember her making "units" for me. Not sure if any of you remember the day of "units". Lets just say it is a good thing that fad did not last. I remember her doing my hair and me screaming that it hurt me. I remember singing Madona songs with her in the car. She could do no wrong. I am sure she had her weaknesses but not very many people remember any of them. Because of this I sometimes feel like I will never be as good a mom as she was. The more I learn about her the more I realize she was a very simple women. I wish I had more of her attributes. Whether or not she was perfect she will always be someone I will look to as I learn my role as mom.
About a month after Cambri was born it dawned on me that my mom would have been about the same age as I am right now when she had me. I was home alone with Cambri and I just started crying. I can't even imagine only have 7 short years with my baby girl. I can't help but think that my mom left this world kicking and screaming-because I know I would.
I sit here smiling as I think about her. If you are still reading this entry I want to say thank you for allowing me to reminisce. Hopefully it will get you thinking about your wonderful mom.

Just because this picture is much cuter to look at than the first one:)

All bundled up in the tent together.
The hard ground didn't seem to bother the baby at all. She snoozed the whole night.
Nate in all his glory. Nothing makes him more giddy than eating yummy breakfast foods that were cooked over the campfire. He was like a little kid at Christmas.
