Fun Rainy Days

Here’s how we spent our rainy day yesterday. . .

Holden enjoyed some blueberries.

We got to play with Alexandria.

And of course we played with Play-Doh.


Exciting News!

I am very happy to announce that my brother, Brandon, proposed to his girlfriend, Jess, last night and she said "YES!"  emoticonOur whole family is elated.  We have been waiting for this for a long time.  We are very excited that Brandon is finally settling down and that we are going to have a great sister-in-law.  Congratulations Brandon and Jess!

Happy 7th Anniversary!

Brad and I celebrated out 7th anniversary yesterday.  I can not believe it’s been 7 years already!!  We have done so much and come so far in 7 years.  It’s been the best 7 years of my life Honey and I look forward to the many years to come!

We celebrated by going out to eat at Christopher’s.  It was fabulous as always.

Just Pictures

Not much going on this week, just pictures. . .

Holden tried blueberries this week and LOVED them!


My Adorable Cuties

One adorable reason to get up early every morning

He usually wakes up pretty happy in the morning and is sitting up waiting for me to come get him.

Another adorable reason to wake up early every morning. . .

. . . or I just wake up because he says "Mommy, my tummy is shaking" and proceeds to vomit in our bed.  Yep, that’ll get me out of bed pretty quick.  emoticon

A Couple Of Firsts

Last week the boys both experienced a couple of firsts.  Last Friday we took Jaxson bowling for the very first time.  We went to the Waukee bowling alley and had a great time.  Jaxson was so excited that he was going to do the "real bowling, not the bowling on TV (Wii bowling)".  He did such a good job too.  It doesn’t go without saying that he did beat his Mommy by quite a bit on the second game.  It looks like Wii bowling has helped.  Holden’s First last week was crawling 🙂  He started off slowly by moving a couple "steps" forward then he’d have to take a break and sit, then a couple more.  Now he is all over the place.  He likes to follow Jaxson around; it’s quite cute. 

Ugh, this is heavy!

Here I go!

Takin’ a rest.

Whoa! This crawling thing takes a little coordination.

This one is going to be a shocker for a lot of you. . . Jaxson tried corn on the cob for the first time last week and he loved it 🙂

In other exciting news, we finally got a new driveway  emoticon.  This was pretty exciting for Jaxson and all of his neighbor friends since we had a loader and several cement trucks at our house. 

Jaxson and his friend Drake watching the guys work on the driveway and enjoying cupcakes and lemonade.

Nice to see my money hard at work.  Just kidding, they were waiting for the next cement truck.

Holden LOVES to play in the grass.

Jaxson’s First Day Of School

Jaxson started preschool today!!!  He wasn’t as excited to go as I thought he would be.  I think he even forgot this morning that he had preschool.  It just didn’t seem like a big deal to him, but when we showed up, he was smiling ear to ear.  We mingled a little bit, got some pictures and then he sat down at a table full of girls and wanted to do Play-Doh.  Once he sat down he said "bye bye Mommy," and was smiling.  When I picked him up I was so excited to hear about his day, but I think he wasn’t too thrilled to tell me all about it.  I had to pry the information out of him. I hope this isn’t a sign of how it’s going to be for the next 14 years.
