On Tuesday, my sister had to go to SLC for some training for her new job at Curves. Since it was my mom's birthday (not that it mattered, she ended up working herself), my sister asked me to babysit. I was thrilled to spend a day with them, so I arranged to have the day off.

Like all babysitting jobs, we had a rough start when mom first left. Valex sat in the window for a few minutes and kept crying "don't leave." Broke my heart, but it was so cute, I had to take a few pictures.

But the rest of the day went smoothly. We watched Mickey Mouse and played all day. 

Vanessa left us some stuff for lunch, but since I'm the "cool" aunt, we went and got some lunch from Rocky's. We had a hamburger, nuggets, fries and ice cream. Valex is getting so descriptive! The ice cream was "tasty", "yummy", "licious" and "cold" (with a shiver!). 

Like true brothers, we either are best friends, 

Or not so much. But don't worry, Daxsen was laughing. Of course, when he sat on his brother later, Valex        was all tears. Things never work fairly both ways between brothers. 

My mom already has her Christmas tree up. If the boys touch it, they have to go to time out. Both ended up there a few times. One time, Daxsen got near it. I told him to not touch it. So he pulled a flower off it and handed it to me. I was worried he would realize he could get away with it, so I put him in time out. (Broke my heart!) But it didn't work. Vanessa told me he still tries that trick. And sometimes he "plants" the flowers in the couch. Its just too much temptation. Another time, Valex got near the tree. When I told him not to touch it, he looked at me, then stuck his belly out as far as he could until it bumped the tree. I probably should have put him in time out, but I let him get away with it. 

I don't know how my sister does it day to day. I was exhausted that night! But it was a perfect day.

That was the funniest story when you told me how Valex stuck his belly out as far as he could to bump the tree! What a character!
