My Favorite Boy

OK seriously, Is this not the cutest little boy in the world? Well My world anyway. He loves to get his little Lightning McQueen stool and "help" me in the kitchen. He really could stand for hours in front of the sink "washing the dishes".
Before church on Sunday he wanted to make his own sandwich. Isn't he handsome? (by the way my kitchen s not dirty, just well loved and used)

do you see the absolute joy on his little face. He loves playing and "washing the dishes". Both sinks are full of water and he is having a blast. I know its wasting water but its so hard to say no when its not the TV and he loves it so much.

Jessica and I took the boys to a new park the other day and they had a blast. They usually fight like brothers (and love each other like brothers too) but this day they just played and played. I think we were there for 2 1/2 hours just loving the weather and the nice new park.

SO CUTE!!!!!! What can I say!
hummm I wonder what my little girl will look like???

Girls weekend in Safford

This past weekend I went to My sister Treisas house in Safford with my sister Michelle and our kids, well her girls anyway(and Tolson). We made cute skirts for the little girls but I didn't get a picture of the finished product. We made lots and lots of flower clips and ribbon clips. We stayed up late every night and ate chocolate and ice cream, watched chick flicks and really enjoyed being sisters. Here are some pictures from our weekend

Michelle and Treisa making skirts our of very cute material we found for cheap. We didn't get all of them done of course but they will be very very cute when they are done.
When we were making the flower clips we stuck the finished ones in our hair to keep them from getting mixed up with all the making supplies. We ended up with a head full of clips.

I promise we won't wear them like that.

Here are all the clips I made. Some are for my baby girl (when she comes) and some are for me. I also helped my nieces make a bunch and figured out how to wrap a headband with ribbon to change it up a little. We had a great time.
When we got home Jason had left us a cute message on the front walkway. You can't read it very well but it says I love you, Welcome home Mom and Tolson. There is a pot with flowers in it and a Monster Truck for Tolson. What a cute Husband I have.
I love spending time with my sisters and the kids have a great time, But I do love coming home. There is nothing better then sleeping in your own bed next to the warm body of your husband. I am so glad that he knows me well enough to know that I need sister time every once in a while.
Thanks Jason and Thanks Michelle and Treisa for a great weekend.

Fun weekend!

ok so I was looking at my blog thinking that I should post something new....but I couldn't think of anything fun to write about. Duh I had a wonderful weekend with my sweetheart.

SO today is our 7th wedding anniversary! It is so weird to think that we have been married that long but yet 7 years is not that long compared to many people and to how long I hope to be married!!!

This past weekend we ran away together. I wasn't sure if we should do it because it always ends up costing more them I want and Money is always tight and ya know if we are going to go I want to do it right and have fun and not worry about money. SO we got a pretty nice tax return and with Jason (hopefully) leaving soon we decided that it was important that we go. SO I booked us a room on Priceline for a great resort in Scottsdale for a great deal. We took Tolson to Grandma's house and left on Friday at about 5ish. We weren't in a hurry (which we usually are when we go to the Temple) so it was nice just to drive and not worry about what time it was or anything. We stopped at In-N-Out on the way and had a yummy fast dinner.
We got up to the Scottsdale Plaza Resort and Spa to check in and felt kind of silly in our old boring car. (Driving in Scottsdale you see lots of luxury cars. ) anyway we went to check in and I saw that we were in a room with two double beds. I asked if there were any king rooms available , it was our anniversary and I hoped we could get a king room. The guy was kind of grumpy and said that he would look. He took his sweet time and then said that he found one for us. When we got to the room we discovered that he had put us in a Villa. It was so nice. WE just hung out and relaxed all weekend. We did some shopping and went to the Temple, hung out by the pool and ate yummy food and just spent time being together. It was so nice, we didn't want to come home. But alas we did. Now we are back to reality but feeling refreshed and still very much in love.

I am so glad that I found a wonderful husband to spend my life with. Thank you Jason for a wonderful 7 years! Our life has been so blessed and I know that the best is yet to come. (if anything can be better then what we have.) I LOVE YOU!!!

Tell someone you love them today!!!!

Three new posts! - Carmelitos!

ok so I have already posts two posts today but I had a lot of catching up to do and I have actually been taking pictures so here you go....

Ok so I have never made or had Carmelitos but oh man they are good. I was checking out the food blogs that I follow and found this recipe on sisterscafe.blogspot.com . I decided that I have all the stuff so I was going to try them. so here is my tutorial on how to make them. If you want it go to their blog and check it out (I don't feel like I can steal it and get credit)
so you mix up this yummy oatmeal mix with sugar, butter, oatmeal and flour. I could eat this all by itself!!!
press half of it in the bottom of the pan and bake it, them top with chocolate and nuts.

drizzle the caramel mix over that. it uses ice cream topping instead of melting wrapped caramels. I just happen to have some so I was in luck.

then you top with the rest of the oatmeal mix and press it down to bake it.

here is the finished product and half the pan is gone already and I just made it yesterday. I would have eaten the whole thing myself but I did want to sleep last night. You really should try this recipe. IT is sooo good. check it out at sisterscafe.blogspot.com
Have a great day and enjoy your kitchen!!!!

Helping Daddy!

Tolson loves to help his daddy! If you ask him to do anything and he doesn't want to, if you then ask him to help daddy he will get all excited and run to go help.
Here is Tolson helping daddy work on the car. He would ask everyday if he could help work on the car or truck. he just puttered around while Jason worked and thought it was the best thing ever!!!!!
This is Helping to dig some trenches in the back yard for our landscaping project. he loves using his dump truck to move the dirt and using a little plastic shovel to fill it up. He really is a big helper. What a joy he is to have in our home! Just thought I would share on some of the fun.

Park and Zoo!

Last week Tolson and Brady took Jessica and I to the Zoo! What a fun time we had. When we got there the parking lot was FULL so we went to another part of the park and eat lunch. Then we fought the crowds and enjoyed the zoo. These boys love the zoo (what kid doesn't) and I think we do too. Here are some pictures of our adventures.
the boys found some little birds to chase and had a great time. They chased these two birds for several minutes. They are scoping them out now to see if they will come back after being chased. Two cute little boys!!!

Couldn't get one with his eyes open but its still cute!

They always love this part of the zoo. We love it too cuz we can sit down and they can run and run and run!
Ok on the the park. This was a trip to Aqua Caliente park two weeks ago. Jessica and I both needed to get out of the house so we took a picnic and the boys to the park to run around and play baseball. They had a blast!

This is trying to get them to both look at the camera and smile at the same time.

So instead they looked at the water and we got a cute picture!!! Its is so fun to watch them explore and look for new things. They had fun watching the fish and ducks and we even saw some turtles.

ok so we had our Big Sonogram today and it went great. I had to be there at 9am and had to get a bunch of stuff ready and take tolson to my sisters before so I couldn't sleep this morning. I was not feeling anxious about the Dr. Appointment or anything, just had too much to do and not much time to get it done so I got up early and got to it. Got to the Dr 5 min early (which never happens) and got called right in. Jason wasn't there yet so I asked them to send him right in. The Sono tech was so nice. She was fast and took lots of measurements and looked for lots of things. She checked the skull, the spine, the pallet, the nasal bun(I don't know what that is but I guess if they don't have it, its a sign of downs) kidneys, bladder, heart from all angles, brain, fingers, toes and everything looks great. better then great it looks perfect!!!!! I was soo relieved to see it all and have it all look so good. I feel like I am finally getting excited about all this, and girl too! I can't wait! It will be so fun. 5 months from today is my due date so I feel like its a long way to go but I am sure it will be here before I know it. Anyway it was a great appointment and then I saw my Dr right after and he is so great. A bit crazy but a wonderful Dr. He was excited because I had gained 2 lbs. I haven't gained much weight (well almost non) and so he was glad I started to gain a little. he was cheering and I told him that no woman ever wants someone to cheer because they GAIN weight, only when they lose it. he just laughed and said in this case he is happy! I thought it was funny!

Anyway now we need a name for this little girl. We like unique names (like Tolson) but don't want something too extreme. I want it to be kind of short and hopefully use Marie and a middle name since that is mine. SOOOO any suggestions would be great.

Hope you all had a great day too!!!!

Car Update!

ok so we didn't buy a new car but Jason has worked on them a lot and got them up and running (sort of) He worked and worked on the truck to get it working and ready to pass emissions. He finally got the check engine light to go off so he took it to do emissions right away, it finally passed but them we couldn't renew it online because he had gotten a ticket. so we had to wait until Monday and go take it in to the MVD. but alas we got it done and he can drive it again. ( the check engine light came back on on the way home for the MVD but he is registered so we will worry about that later!)*sigh Now with my car we are heading to safford this weekend to have my Bro-in-law help us replace the CV boots and ball joint. should be fun!!!! Thanks Jessica for letting us use the Jeep! You are WONDERFUL! I have to say though we are having car envy from driving a nice new clean car instead of our old ones. oh well someday we will get a newer car!!!

so there you go, cars on the mend! now for the Sonogram tomorrow I will see if I can somehow get some of the pictures on here so you can see our little one in the making!!!!!
