Camberlyn’s thoughts on Snow.

Earlier this week Rexburg was covered in a thick blanket of beautiful snow. I love snow; maybe its because I grew up in Arizona and when it did actually snow there you were lucky if it lasted until noon, or maybe its because I love winter and Christmas,  but something about the snow here just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. So you can imagine my excitement when I woke to see the limbs of the huge pine in our front yard covered in snow. I am not usually a morning person but  my excitement had me up and out of bed in no time flat. Naturally Brynt and I wanted to share this amazing gift from nature with Cam, so we got out the baby snow suit and and bounded out the front door to show her the snow.


I know it looks like we took her out in the middle of the night, but I promise its like 7:30 in the morning.

I think the best word to describe her reaction is Confusion. She had no idea what all the white stuff was and where the grass had gone.  She liked watching the snow fall but still had a look on her face like “something fishy is going on here”.  To be honest it was hilarious, kids are by far the best entertainment ever.

Later that day I though I should let her go out again and see if her feelings about snow would change…

Nope, she still thought I had sent her to an alien planet.  So we went back inside and played with her chair from Great Grandad and that was lots of fun 🙂

How cute is that chair?!

I think as the winter season really gets on and we have more chances to let her play in the snow she will  warm up to the stuff 😉


I have been working on moving our blog from blogger to wordpress for a while now, and since I am technologically challenged I just discovered today that there is a very easy way to do it. So it is finally moved and I am very happy about it 🙂 Its still a little rough and I have some quirks to work out but I think over all this will be an improvement.

And now for an update. Camberlyn is growing up so quickly. She will be nine months next week and I am honestly blown away with how fast the time has gone, I love to see how she grows and changes each day and it is hard to believe that she is the new born I held for the first time nine months ago.

here is a list of her latest and greatest achievements.

-Saying Dad. She officially has a first word, and its Dad. This past week she started saying it, and it is absolutely adorable. When she hears Brynt’s truck pull up she races to the door excitedly saying “Da Da Dad Dad Da!”. The reason I can say this is her first word and not just baby babble is because she only says it when Brynt is        home, and then she says it non stop. That baby loves her dad!

-Lightning fast crawling skills. Cam is quick, especially if a door is open. Sometimes I wonder if she has baby       rocket fuel in her system.

-Climbing. Now, she has been climbing basically since she started crawling, but recently she has learned how to use objects like boxes or toys to climb onto other things like the tv stand or the couch. Its an adventure trying to keep up with her, trust me.

-Growling. I have no idea where she picked it up but she can now growl, and it is hilarious.

– Standing… sort of. She is getting to be an expert at pulling her self up to things and standing with just a tiny bit of support. Now and then we can get her to stand all by herself, she does great until she realized that no one is holding her, then she promptly sits down.

We love this little cutie!

In other news…

Brynt is some how managing to balance work, school, family and two sports ( how he does it I don’t know, but he  does it well). As for me, I chase after my wild baby all day and fit in a few projects when I can. Hopefully I will get some of them posted shortly. I am getting excited about me and Cam’s trip to Arizona next month, although it will be so hard to not have Brynt with us. All three of us are getting pumped for Christmas, I know some might say it is to early but in the Barney house hold it is Never to early for Christmas…only 59 and a half days left!
