Fun with Mason!

Mason is at such a fun age right now. He is starting to spell his name and we are teaching him some songs to sing. His favorite right now is Head, Shoulders, Knees and toes.

If you listen closely, you can hear that he says head, shoulders, knees, toes and bad, bad nose! I just love it!!!

The kids went back to school this week and I am attempting to organize and clean the house. My to do list is a mile and half long and Mason, Hudson and I are all sick. Hudson has his first cold and is sooo stuffy. I feel bad for him. We go on Thursday for his check-up and hopefully we will be done with the monitor!

Hope you enjoy the video.

Hard to believe that 2010 is over and we are now in 2011. I haven't done so well blogging lately, but I promise that will change.

He graduated from Preschool
