Two boys that love to play together

picture taken yesterday, but it still makes me happy. :)

I love when the boys sleep in!

Especially when I still wake up early and have time to get ready for the day, eat breakfast, read a little, and just have a little me time before I have to be in mom mode again!

I also like it when they sleep in, and I get to sleep longer too. Either way, them sleeping in is a win-win. :)

I'm back! I have a week that is ready to post, but I need to add pics or format the post (I wrote them on my phone). But otherwise I had a rough week or two and just didn't even think about this. But now I'm back... and there are more things than ever to write about! :)

Hunter brings me so much joy!
Today he had the cutest smile as he told me that Jackson kicked over his tower. Usually he's pretty upset about it. He reassured me, "It's ok Mom!" :)

Later he picked up the basket Jackson was carrying around, after they put a bunch of stuff in it, "Let me carry it for you Jackson. It's kind of heavy." lol. :)

Taking care of my children! There is nothing better than being a mom, and the love that I feel for these three little munchkins!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!
It its my life. It is who I am. It provides so many blessings that come in so many ways. I am eternally grateful for it, and for all of the wonderful friends I've made and relationships that have been strengthened because of it. :) the gospel brings me joy!

"He-made-a fire" LOL! or in other words, humidifier. (inside joke -ali. It makes me cry every time I think about it.) :D

My aunt from Virginia is here and we all got together fire a mini family reunion. It was awesome! All but one of my uncles were there. Otherwise it was some cousins, awesome food, and great conversation! One thing I love about my moms side of the family is how comfortable we are with each others. We don't see each other for years, but it feels like it was just yesterday. There is just so much love and you always feel welcome. It's great! I wish we saw each other more often! :)

Family Pictures


We decided to venture out and get our yearly family photos. For the past 3 years we've somehow managed to always get them taken on Nov. 3rd(I think), but decided  to try and get them done while there were still some leaves on the trees. It was short and sweet, but we had fun! :) 
Another self portrait adventure (camera strapped to the stroller and thank goodness the timer setting takes 4 photos.) :) and of course a wonderful hubby to help out (and take some great shots) so that in the future we will remember that I was a part of the family too. heehee.

We went up to South Fork park, where we went last year for our pictures, and it was so beautiful!! I absolutely love it up there by the river. :) We finished up our photo shoot with a mini picnic. I love being outside!

{10/1/11} Picnics

Today my favorite man took me and my girl on a picnic! It was SO much fun! :) We went up the canyon and ate our sandwiches and grapes, watched the river and the clouds and it was PERFECT. Beautiful weather and everything. Sometimes it's so nice to get out of the house, and get a break from two very excited boys. :)
