baby blues.

i cannot even say how excited i am for this little lady to have a little boy in just a few months. when i found out what she was having i knew i had to make something..(i know my husband hates when i say this!):) i had this funny vision of hedgehogs, skunks and mushrooms...and loved the little characters that came out. i found these cute little characters on some target clothing and HAD to recreate!

i can't decide if the hedgehog...
or skunk is my favorite! more about the jess visit to come.:)

db dawg strikes.

a few days ago we got a knock at our door and this is what we found when we opened it!

we were all a little confused, the boys were estatic..and we really didn't know what it was until we looked at his necklace. apparently our ward has this dog travel around to everyone in the ward's home and each family is suppose to have some sort of adventure with it. then you go to his BLOG and write about it.
the boys decided this was going to be our adventure...
then we ditched it at someone else's home.
booker thought THIS was by far the best part.

a filling of paper flowers.

for my mom's 61st i promised her a flower for every year she was born. after punching paper with the boys for a few hours and gluing a few more and wrapping 61 wire stems in floral wire and adding a few brads to boot we had them ready to ship off to washington. each of these flowers represent a year she has lived and looking at how different each of these flowers are, i can see how each year of her life has been different and beautiful. looking at them all together makes quite a beautiful sight to see, just as each year has made my mom as such. love you, mom.

grandma julie came and we had such a great time with her..she wore us out!

lincoln found exactly what he wanted for halloween..."handcups and swords..that's IT mom!"

park day..lookin cute

i could just kiss those cheeks..and i do EVERY day!:)

her eyes are amazing.
my brother, toby and his family came to visit and we also had such a great time with them..
this pool was A.MAZ. ING!
a little swimming time with uncle Toby
some yummy eats at the Rainforest Cafe.

Lincoln loved the rain..
Maizie loved the animal print seats.
and we just can't get over her. Each time we see her (whether at 3 am or 3 pm), we just remember what a blessing she is in our life.
We are feeling so blessed. Thanks to all of our visitors.
