Pizza the Bear

I had to post these pictures and tell you about Pizza the Bear. Cameron's Nana (Jason's mom) came to visit in March and she brought Cameron's little cousin Marly (Jason's sister's girl.) While they were here, she took Cameron to Build a Bear Workshop in Orem. This was the first time we had been there. And it was a lot of fun! I think Jason and I had as much fun as the kids did, looking at all the stuffed animals and outfits. Anyway, Cameron got to choose his animal. He chose a black bear right away and he helped the girl put the stuffing in it. He put 2 little hearts in it, one that Nana kissed and one that he kissed. Then we looked around for the right outfit. They had so many to choose from. We finally decided on some jeans and a hoodie, because hoodies are Cameron's favorite. That's all the accessories that he wanted. So we went to the computer to name it and get a certificate. When we asked Cameron what he wanted to name it, he replied "Pizza." We laughed, and then asked again. We asked him probably 4 or 5 times, and each time he said "Pizza." So we decided that would be the name for his bear. So he officially brought home "Pizza the Bear" and they have been good friends ever since. He sleeps with Pizza every night. Below are some pictures of him and Pizza, and also some of him, Pizza, and Marly taking a nap. Thanks again Nana for the fun weekend!

Happy Easter

I have been reminded by several people that I need to update my blog. So, I am going to do that today. I have some new pics to post. We had a fun Easter weekend, although Cameron ended up being sick. He tried to have fun and was a real trooper, but you might notice in some of the pics that he just lacked energy.
Update on our baby...we are now in our 30th week. We are getting closer. Our baby is still acting healthy and we are going to our next dr. appt this Friday. She moves A LOT, and seems to get the hiccups at least 3 times a day. I am still expanding, but feeling pretty good. We are just finishing up our prenatal classes this week. Even though it's baby #2, I wanted to take the classes again because it helped so much when I was in labor with Cameron. I am glad we are taking them. It's been a good refresher course.
Jason is just finishing up with school. This week is his last time to go to campus and he will turn everything in. He has finished his clinical hours, so all he has to do is prepare to take his board exam.
That's just a quick update from the Barber house. I am going to post a couple pics now. Maybe I'll be more diligent in updating my blog....haha.
Here's Cameron on the day before Easter. We colored eggs at my mom's house with Cameron's cousins. We ended up with around 6 dozen colored Easter eggs.

This is Cameron on Easter morning with his Easter basket. The Easter bunny brought him some treats along with some new sandals and toys.

These are the pictures of our Easter Egg hunt, held annually at my mom's house. It's been tradition since we were kids. The Easter Bunny hides all of the eggs that we colored the night before out in my parents' yard, then we get to find them. Some of the eggs are marked with money amounts (mostly $1, but there's also a $5 egg). My Aunt Willi marks those eggs before the Easter Bunny hides them, and then whoever finds the eggs gets the money from her. (limit 1 money egg per person, to make it fair). Below is a picture of Cameron getting a dollar for his money egg from Aunt Willi, and showing it off to me.

That's it for this post. Hope you all had a Happy Easter too.
