Bubble Blowers

My friend Melissa watches the kids two days a week.  Yesterday she took them outside for some bubble blowing and bless her heart she took these GREAT pictures for me. 

I miss seeing their cute faces and all the fun things they do while I'm stuck at work. 

Jaxon's concentration in the next series of pictures is priceless. Aren't bubbles great!
This look - this kills me.
I'm not sure what I want to do more - make monkey sounds or chew on her cheeks.

Thank you Melissa!

I did so good for awhile, but me and time - we don't seem to be on the same team these days.

Maybe it's the warm weather  large amounts of moisture that are making my lawn grow like the weed it is. 
Maybe it's the move and everything just barely getting back to normal at work.
Maybe it's the increase in "me" time.
Maybe it's extra curricular activities.

Regardless of what it "is" - I currently suck at blogging and baking.

If anyone happens upon one of those "time turner back things" that Hermione uses on Harry Potter, I'll buy it from you!

Mother's Day

On Mother's Day we were ready for church half and hour early - can you believe that? 
Don't tell my Bishop he won't believe you.
Because we had time to kill and my kids were actually dressed and clean at the same time -
We took pictures.

I actually got videos of both kids saying how much they loved me - for Mother's Day.
If I can figure out how to load them here I will.

Baby Shower

So, I mentioned Melissa and I did some baking while she was here.

We made these for our cute friend Steph.

Gosh I wish I had been this cute while pregnant.

Super cute!

A sleepover

My dear sweet friend Melissa came to visit this past weekend. 
We grew up together and she moved away to Idaho years ago.  But, this weekend just for fun and for a friends babyshower, she came.

Jaxon was so excited that I was having a sleepover.  He loves them, so of course he thought it was fantastic - that and the fact that Melissa brought her gorgeous 4 month old daughter.

Who knew Jaxon was such a fan of babies?

Her stay was fun - we baked - A LOT.
We took 3 kids to Ikea on a Saturday - Hello!
We laughed and carried on and had a great time.

Side story about Jaxon - at Ikea, he would not leave Melissa and the baby.
The entire time he had his head stuck in the stroller, talking and playing with the baby.
Multiple (at least 50) times I told him to back up and give them some room, etc.
After one of these tellings, he turns to me and says,
"Don't you know Mom, I have a WAY with babies."

Are you kidding me?  I love this kid!

Melissa, please come back and visit soon and make sure and bring Gillian too.
