But Mom..

But Mom, Crue likes having stickers on his head!!

Who would have thought...

Who would have thought that seven dollars spent at the dollar store would have got me all this...

The prettiest sidewalks in town...

Hours of hearing childrens laughter as they play with bubbles...

Lots of wet clothes...

Some one on one time with my little man since Claire will literally spend hours doing her puzzles...

And the best of all...
" You are the BEST, mom! I am sooooo spoiled!"

Summer Days

Summer is here and we are enjoying every minute of it. In years past we would be out and about and going lots of places but the weather hasn't been cooperating much this year. Instead we have been enjoying things a little closer to home.

Our days have been spent jumping on the trampoline

Going out to Clover Springs

Working in the yard

Learning how to climb a tree...or as I call it, working on getting that broken arm she so desperately wants

Seeing how many monkees/cousins can fit in a tree

Growing, Growing, and Growing

Sunday drives up to the reservoir...and we have never seen it so full

Playdates with friends at the park

Playing in the backyard

Blowing lots of bubbles

Taking long naps

Making yummy food on the grill...homemade pizza is a new fav

And picnics in the park with Grandma Holly.

It has been a great summer so far!!

So Very Blessed

The other night I was sitting on the porch holding my babies and singing primary songs as we watched the sun creep behind the mountains. It got me thinking about how incredibly blessed we are. I have a beautiful little girl who is so full of life, so curious about everything, and gives the best hugs in the world. Spending my days with her reminds me to enjoy the simple things and makes me want to be a better mom. My little guy just melts my heart when he smiles and looks at me with those dark brown eyes. Holding him is like holding a piece of heaven and I am so grateful Heavenly Father sent him down. My amazing husband works so hard so I can stay home with our kids. He treats us so good and is the best father in the world. Im not sure what I did to deserve such a great man. And most of all, we have the gospel in our lives which brings so much peace and happiness along with it. I love knowing that I can be with my family forever. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and knows me personally and has a plan for us.

Life is great and I am so very blessed

Looking to the future

Oh, the things she looks forward to doing...

When I am 10 I can mow the lawn all my myself.

Mom, when Crue gets older me and you can get married in the temple and I will look like a princess.

I'm going to make cement when I get older.

When I am 16 I can drive a garbage truck and pick up all the garbage on the street.

Next year I can climb the tree all the way to the top.

When I get older I want a broken arm. And I want a green cast. That would be so awesome! I want to break my arm now but mom said no.

I can drive a car when I am 20.

Mom, can I play with sharp knives when I am six?

I want to ride on a motorcycle when I get old but mom says she will spank my bum really hard. I think boys and motorcycles are dangerous.

When I go poop in the potty, dad will buy me an orange soda, some green gum, and m&m's. And I get to go to school!!

I want to ride my bike through the mud puddles with Callie this week.
