Thank you Meema!!

My mom came for a few days this week and having her here was a big help! Jeff's been extra busy lately and I haven't been able to do much without my kids in tow. I love them but keeping track of them in a store takes ALL of my attention so I can't really shop with them there. I don't want to point fingers but it's Grayson :) He's in in the phase where he wants to walk all by himself (he won't hold my hand and he won't let me hold him) and simply keeping him from getting lost or run over is exhausting! Well, with my mom babysitting I was finally able to cross some things off my to-do list as well as get a massage :) It was great! Thanks Meema!!

"Even the best fall down sometimes"

~"Collide" by Howie Day

My kids LOVE to make messes. Mostly they say their making forts or houses or clubhouses but really they're just making a mess :) Yesterday they were occupied with their various building activities all day.
This is Davis' new bed.

Then he made a clubhouse.

But he wasn't sharing so Leah made her own.

But then, when the house was completely destroyed and you couldn't step anywhere without stepping on a pillow or blanket or toy or child, Leah tripped. I didn't see the catastrophic fall but I heard the screaming/crying! Apparently the fates where out to get her and she fell right on a can of peaches Davis had gotten out to eat "later". Ouch!
She did eventually stop crying but it took awhile! Then they all continued to happily make more messes for the rest of the day :)

Moral of the story: Being messy does have it's consequences!

Dear Amber,

You're my favorite sister :) Life's better when you're around! And when you call me on the phone ;) Do you like my hair?
Luv Always,

"The Way I Are"

~ Timbaland featuring Keri & D.O.E.
  • I love Grayson. This week he's started to watch TV. Well, saying TV is too broad, he actually only watches Enchanted. Normally I wouldn't want my 1 year old watching TV but he has some teeth coming in and if I need to do anything without holding him at the same time, like cook, Enchanted is a life saver :)
  • I love Davis. He started preschool this week and I think it's hilarious how he's constantly flip-flopping between yelling about how much he doesn't want to go and being overly excited to go.

  • I love Leah. She has always been a quirky sleeper. Ever since she was tiny she's always slept with a ton of toys and blankets on her bed at night. Sometimes there's barely any room for her. Well, I just about peed my pants when I saw this sleeping pose:
  • I love Stephenie Meyer. I read Midnight Sun and it rocked my world.
  • I love my hair highlighted. Thanks Devin!
  • I love the feeling of tired muscles because you've been working out. I started going to the gym again and I love it. I hate working out for the sake of working out but since I have no sports to play I'll take what I can get :)
  • I love twins. It's a good thing Jenny has some cute ones for me to play with :)

Climbing on Mountains

We took our kids to Red Rock on Saturday to, as Davis puts it, "climb on mountains". And we took some food so we could "eat on the mountain too" aka picnic :)

Jeff helped Leah and Davis climb to the top.
Grayson and I stayed on the ground where it's safe.

He did want to climb to the big kids but his little legs weren't much help :)

They learned how to crab walk their way down.

Sorry some of the pictures aren't that great. I'm totally forgetful and I forgot our good camera so all these pictures were taken on my phone.
This last picture is on here because it's the first picture/first time I've thought Gray looks a lot like his cousin Bennett!! Who I don't have a picture of for comparison sake but you can see pics of him on his mom's blog here.
