At two and a half, Hudson has quite an extensive vocabulary and knows how to use it to his advantage.  With his good looks and just overall cuteness, he is totally and completely worthless and spoiled rotten!   We now have to be careful what we say because it will come out of HIS mouth at the most inopportune time.  For instance, Lyle was telling me about how he saw this car flip over in front of him on the interstate and I replied with a sarcastic "Shut up!"  Well, let me be the first to admit that is certainly not the cutest phrase coming out of the mouth of a two year old in front of the grandparents.  Oops!

Here are a few of my favorite Hudson quotes/phrases at the moment.

  • Ders a munster in my woom = There is a monster in my room. (aka, please sleep with me mommy)
  • I have a burger = I have a booger.  
  • Umple Bwake = Uncle Blake 
  • I NEEEED M&M's mommy (not to be confused with I want)
  • Buzz Lightyear to the Wessscue
  • Noah made dis mess (all messes are blamed on his cousin) 
  • Every time we finish reading a book, he ends with a "AMEN!"
  • I pooped Daddy!  (yes, we are completely potty trained, so of course this is a favorite phrase of mine)
He just makes me smile...and giggle! 

I just have to say, I am loving American Idol this season.  Pure greatness!

Snowed In!

Ol' Man Winter, how we teachers welcome you! We are going on day three of bad weather and we are snowed, or should I say, iced in. This was a much needed break and my family has gotten lots of extra snuggle time. Needless to say, I have spent more time on Facebook and then hopped on over to my poor little neglected blog.

Last weekend we took advantage of the beautiful weather and took a little trip to the Dallas Aquarium. It was fantastic.  Of course, we topped of the trip with a stop at Chucky Cheese!

                                                        Showing him how its done!
                           Family fun at Chucky Cheese! We won a total of 246 tickets and left with a
                       small plastic car and a cheap goodie bag.  Oh well, the $36 dollars was worth all the fun.

                                                       The Dallas Aquarium 
                                                  At the top of the canopy of the rainforest!
                                             Uncle Blake and Grammy (not pictured) came too!

                                                Cleaning the fish tank...he waved at Hudson!
Cute little bird.

Hope this weather improves soon.  We are getting a little cabin fever.  Lyle is going to try to make it to work tomorrow and Momma and Hudson are not happy about that!

Spring has arrived and we are in full swing at the Campbell household. To be honest, it is 12:30 in the morning and I have NO business blogging at this time of night. Grad school is kicking my patooty this semester! I sort of lost my urge to blog when I started grad school last year. But for some reason, I have convinced myself I am back on the bandwagon. Hope it lasts. Now that I am back on, I am obsessed with "blinging' my blog and have just spent two hours trying to figure out my new layout and banner. Like I said, I am obsessed.
Since the last time I blogged, we sold our house in Weatherford, moved back to the our quite little hometown, and are in the process of remodeling my grandparent's house that we bought. In the meantime, we are staying with my parents. Needless to say, it has been crazy! My latest adventure is that I joined a photography club here in town. I must say, I LOVE IT! I am learning so much about my digital camera and who doesn't love a little friendly competition, right? Hudson is getting so big. His new thing is to call me "Mom" instead of "mommy." Well, that AIN'T happenin'. I least get to be "mommy" until he is like in 3rd grade, right? He has grown into this rambunctious, curious little boy overnight. I foresee lots of timeouts in his future. I am not ready for that...I mean the discipline side of parenting. That's when the hard part begins.
Well if any of you bloggers out there have tips for "blinging" your blog, send them my would be greatly appreciated. We took the usual bluebonnet pictures last week. Hudson actually cooperated and gave me some decent shots. Love that little boy to pieces. Well, better try to get some shut eye. TAKS week is next week and I certainly need my rest to survive!

Happy Birthday Uncle Blake!

Happy Birthday Uncle Blake. Hudson made a little video for you to showcase his latest tricks. He is not much of a performer, so your lucky you got this much. Enjoy! Hope you had a great day today!

Catching Up

Hudson had a fun-filled Easter. He participated in his first Easter egg hunt at the Gordon City park, where he hunted a whole two eggs. He was not so much into the hunt as much as the people watching. He did win $25.00 from the Santo National Bank in a drawing afterwards. I think he may have inherited some good luck from the Campbell side of the family and escaped the curse of his mom's bad luck. I very rarely win on scrath off tickets at Christmas time and was self nicknamed red light Rexroat. I could make a stop light turn red just by looking at one.

Hudson was one lucky little man and got a new swing from his Grammy and Grandpa. HE LOVES IT. He could swing for hours and be the happiest little boy in this neck of the woods.

Hudson looked quite dapper on Easter Sunday. He enjoyed a nice lunch at GiGi's and G-Pa's house. And ror the record Aunt Penny, he hates mashed potatoes!!! He is a strange kiddo!

After lunch, we walked down to the corner to take some bluebonnet pictures. I was so excited to take his first pictures. Below is the best one I got...

He was not having it. So much for cute pictures.

Still haven't sold the house. We have had lots and lots of lookers. So, we just keep praying the right person will come along. I just wish they would hurry up. It sure is hard keeping a clean house 24/7 with an 8th month old.

Happy 31st anniversary to Grammie and Grandpa. We love you.

7 Months Old

Hudson is 7 months old today. We marked the occasion by loading up and taking a trip to Sears to take his pictures for Easter. This was a last minute idea that I got Friday at work. I called Babies R' Us and booked their earliest appointment for 4:00. But I then realized that by 4:00, Hudson is usually very tired and cranky, and that it would be a big waste of time and money, not to mention a big disappointment to have bad pictures. I remembered seeing an advertisement in my Parent magazine for Sears, so I decided to give them a call. And I am so glad I did. They turned out so well. See his pictures throughout this blog.

It has been forever since I have blogged. I have come to realize that I should win the worst blogger award. I know I have a few loyal fans, you know who you are, and I do apologize for my lack of blogs. So here are a few random tidbits from the Campbell household from the last few months. (Along with the Sears pics)

1. Hudson is now eating more baby foods, rolling around, crawling, and sitting up all on his own. We no longer can set him down on the floor and walk away. He is into everything and has a tendency to get into everything he shouldn't, like the glass door on our TV stand.

2. We have currently put our house on the market so we can move back home. I never thought in a million years that I would ever want to move back to Gordon, but now that Hudson is here, it is funny how things change. I am driving about 120 round trip every day and I do not get home until around 6-6:30. Not fun with a little one. Plus I am going back to school this summer to get my principal certification and I think I will need all the help from the grandparents! (Hint, Hint).

3. I have sworn off The Bachelor" I have never been more disgusted in my entire life. Poor Melissa! And to think I was a fan of Jason. I am still distraught. I hope she wins Dancing with the Stars.

4. I am taking the GRE on Tuesday and not looking forward to it. I haven't done Algebra in so many years and just the thought of the quantitative reasoning section makes me sick to my stomach.

5. Hudson is now sleeping through the night (for the most part). His teeth have been giving him heck these past few weeks. I can see them just under the surface of his gums. It really hurts my heart that I cannot do anything to make him feel any better.

6. We recently lost Pa-Paw a few weeks ago. We all knew the time was coming, but it is still very hard to not have him around. Not a day goes by, that I don't think of him. I am just so thankful that he got to spend time with Hudson. We had a beautiful service and were blessed to have many family and friends around for support.

7. Lyle's sister got engaged two weekends ago. We are so excited for her and Seth. He will be the perfect addition to our family.

8. Lyle bought me an Iphone for Christmas. I am ADDICTED. We (yes Lyle too) play on it all the time. I love it!

9. Hudson, Grammy, and I are going to go visit Uncle Blake and Aunt Lauren this week and see their new house. Hudson is going to go the U of O and meet everyone in the Alumni Office.

10. I am so glad it is Spring Break. It gives me time to play with Hudson, clean my house, update my facebook, and BLOG! Yea for Spring Break. I am ready for the warm weather, so I can start working out. I hate to work out in the cold. But it is time for me to get my rear in gear!!! Especially if I want to hang out at the pool.

Well there you have it. A few random updates. Until next time, God bless.
