Sandy Times

It looks like sandbox love! What kid doesn't love a sandbox? Harrison can play for hours and hours creating construction sites.

Spoon Lady

I've had these silver spoons for a couple of months now and I'm finally making time to flatten them out.

First step complete. I'm thinking I'll use them for garden markers. Stay tuned!

Farmer's Market

The monkeys and I took a leisurely stroll to the farmer's market. My garden is suffering this year from lack of attention so it's nice to purchase from someone else's. 

Do you ever stop and stare at all the staples in the street poles? It's beautiful in my world.

Del Mar, Part 2

Even though, I was in Del Mar on business, I was able to soak in my surroundings.

Here's a view from the upper deck of the ocean. It looks surreal.

Del Mar, Part 1

It's my first flying trip away from both kiddos. I know I'll miss them dearly but at least I'll get a good night's rest! I saw this sign at the airport and it cracked me up! I especially like the flower graphic.

Yeah, here's to the sisters reuniting for a relaxing dinner!

Website Wednesday - Grantland

This week's website is one I hear about quite a bit. Click HERE for Grantland. It's a site by ESPN that includes stories, blogs and podcasts. Ryan sends me at least one article a week from this site. Thanks babe ;)

It's always a good time whenever Way is around. Click, click, click with the tongue.

Such a sweet little innocent face.

AHHHHHH, this face always makes my heart smile.

Book Monster

Waverly is very fortunate to have an older brother who was gentle on his books and toys so she's able to enjoy them now. She on the other hand is a book monster. I really am not sure how she managed to tear this board book apart. That BABY!

The days of the kids cooperating are long gone. This group is on the move now and it keeps all of us on our toes!

Homemade Pasta

Have you ever made your own pasta? I always thought it would be really difficult but I was wrong. Ryan mixed and I cut. The noodles turned out pretty fat and bland but it wasn't too bad for our first attempt.

Lunch Date

I rarely go out to lunch. When you work from home, it's just easier to stay in plus it's not like I have co-workers to eat with :) Steven was in town today so we decided to meet Ryan from some chicken fried chicken, fried okra and green beans. I was about ready to explode by the time we finished :)

H's Check Up

Harrison had his 4 year old wellness check up today and he's doing great. He's 50% for his weight and 25% for his height. I'll be curious to see if it says this way.

I have a huge US map on my office wall and H was having me name the state for him.

H: What's this one?

Me: New Jersey

H: Do they have space ships in New Jersey?

Me: Em, no I don't think so. Why?

H: Because there's a globe right next to it. 

Look close at the map and you'll see what he's referring to.

Jumpin Partay!

Now that H is 4, he's comfortable hanging on to Miss W. She looks about as big as him!

This year's party was at the Jump Zone and the kids went crazy. It was the perfect setting.

Nothing like a little juice and cupcakes to get the second wind (aka sugar rush)!

Thank you for everyone who came to the party! We love you infinity Birthday Boy!

4 Years Old!

Our big, little guy is four-years-old today! Happy Birthday Harrison. We love you SOOO much and you fill up a huge part of our hearts.

Birthday King

When I picked up H today, he was sporting his birthday crown made by his teachers. Tomorrow is the big day!

Play Time

I've had to separate these two the other day. Harrison was imitating Waverly going through the pantry. Well, she wanted in his spot and he wasn't budging so she grabbed a chunk of his hair and yanked it out! Oh BABY!

Rock n' Roll

Harrison has this tiny electric guitar that plays about 10 seconds of songs. He's named each song . . . Rock Chamber which is about a lady (Princess Jackson) who gets caught in a chamber, it's a sad song; Rock Dog is another sad one but he doesn't go into details about his one; One Jackson is a happy tune and the Princess is set free.

Sink Bath!

Oh joys of the ole sink bath. Gotta love them. A Mimi B. special treat.

This is my expression. It melts my heart every time I see that crinkle nose, squinty eyes and two-teeth smile!

Easter Sunday

Happy Easter! The kids had to get some playtime in before church. 

Let brotherly love continue -Hebrews 13:1

My friend Ashley sent us this dress for Waverly after she was born. It was beautiful for her first Easter. The bloomers were courtesy of Andria.

These two look like they're up to no good! 

It's been a tradition to take H's birthday pics on Easter since he's always dressed so nice. 

Almost 4-years-olds! Where did my little baby boy go?

He's all boy! Climbing all over the railings, bricks, rocks, trees, you name it.

Where are your baby cheeks???? Geezh!

Hey, hey baby, get back here!

Oh no, the Easter candy rush has finally hit. We're all doomed.

"Promise me, you'll keep this a secret!"

Another silly monkeys picture.

She was really careful not to get too many grass stains on her dress :)

9 Months!

Our sweet potato is 9 months today! The biggest changes this month is her ability to "cruise" furniture and her sitting up. Still not sleeping through the night, it's a good thing she's so cute!

This is her normal sitting position, it provides her with quick access to leap forward or pull up on something. I don't know how many times she's trapped Harrison in the corner with this stance."Mama, the Baby's trying to climb me!"

Fabric Baskets

Just in time! I finished W's Easter basket tonight and together they make me smile. I actually keep H's on his dresser year round to store hot wheels. Maybe I'll put hair bows in W's. The baskets are super easy to make but time consuming.

Birthday Labels

H's birthday is coming up and at first we were going to have the part at our house. Then he mentioned inviting everyone in his class, well that won't work with our little house. SO I suggested the Jump Zone and he was sold. I designed these birthday labels for the water bottles and similar designs for cupcake toppers. After he saw them, he said he wanted Might Machines instead. Maybe next year buddy, I'm not changing it :)

Rockin' Baby

Okay, who's the baby in this picture? I find H sneaking into W's car seat all the time. He's also been known to climb in her crib in the mornings and play with her which is fine with me b/c it's an extra five or ten minutes of resting!
