If you ask Jack what we have been up to,
he will say

Whoa buddy. I beg to differ.

Jack found a great hiding spot for eating candy.

Brooke found her pockets.

We finally finished the playroom toy cubbies!

I painted everything, Jack held the wood.

Daddy nailed it together! Ahh, the finished product!

I have been working on projects galore!

My 2nd Quilt!


Brooke's Dress

Playroom Curtains

We have been teaching Brookie a few things...
Button-my personal favorite

We did a little playdough, only because they begged for it.
I hate playdough.
It stinks.

Today I love her.....

How can you not love this?

Tomorrow may tell another story,
but as for today, she really makes me smile.

Our Little Doggy

Turns out, we don't need to get a dog, we already have one.

Last Saturday we went to Rexburg for some pony riding and water fun.

I LOVE this picture!
Her hair blowing in the wind and a huge smile on her face!

I say "water fun", but really for Jack, it is more like "water nightmares".
This kid still has a love/hate relationship with water.

Brookelle loves the water. And apparently it tastes good.

"Come on Jack, let's both jump over the water together".....
he falls for it every time.

It's raining cats and dogs outside right now.
Which really puts a damper on the campout that Jack and Vince had planned for the backyard tonight. But from the look on Jacks' face, the basement will work just fine.

Brooke wanted in on the action too!

She had no idea what was going on, but thought it was a blast!

Stories and Flashlights

Nighty night little buddy!

Back to School Shopping


I will find any excuse in the world to buy my kids new stuff (and me too) even when none of us actually go to school.

Except for Jack. He starts preschool next month. Breathe mommy, breathe.

We hit Kohls, Target and Once Upon a Child.
Once Upon a Child definitely stole most of my money.

There were lots of good finds. But I can't share them all with you:
1-Because Vince would kill me if he saw it all in one spot.
2-Blogger can't support that many photos.

So I will share my favorite, and Brooke's favorite find:

The Ruffle Shoes


The complete ensemble.
She wont take them off. I am afraid I will have to zip them up inside her footed jammies tonight.

See Jack Swim

See Jack's teacher try to convince him to put his face in the water.

See Jack use a kick board.

Watch Jack blow bubbles.

See Jack smile!

A few more private lessons, and perhaps we will see Jack not cry and cling to me when walking near a pool!

Our niece Mercedes married her high school sweetheart this weekend in the Salt Lake Temple.
Everything was gorgeous!

The outfits they got for the kids to wear were adorable. But of course I couldn't get Brooke to smile (or look) for a picture.

Grandma & Grandpa

All you can eat cotton candy = Jack a happy boy!

A downpour right in the middle of the reception makes for some fabulous stories.

Congrats Sadie and TJ!
We Love You Guys!
