Happy Anniversary to us!

Aaron and I celebrated our anniversary this weekend by going to dinner at Flemmings and staying the night at the Mariot in SLC. Have I ever told you that Aaron is the best anniversary planner/gift giver? It was a nice evening away from everything (we did have our little buddy with us, and he was a champ). Now we have made it through our 7th year, and neither of us have had an itch!

One Boooooooooooooooooooooy, Boy for Sale!

Last week we took the family to our favorite store, Bukoos. My kids think that it is as good as Lagoon. There is tons of random furniture to hide behind, tall shelves to run around, and lots of strange junk. Aaron and I were looking at a few of the many treasures to be found at Bukoos while our kids played at our feet. They found one bank of shelving and decided to run around and around it. We watched for them to come around to our side about every 15 seconds. Well, 15 seconds went by, then 30. N never came around. I heard M yelling "Mom, come help!". I walked around to the other side, and this is what I found..........

N had sqeezed in between the two banks of shelves and climbed all the way to the top. He was sitting there just as proud as can be. He was well above my head (the shelves were probably 7 feet tall), and so I began to yell for Aaron. He came around the corner, but before we retrieved our 2 year old, we had to get a picture. Aaron kept saying "Dude, as soon as I take this picture you are in time out!".

The Stucco is done

Yay. The scaffolding's down so I could get a nicer picture. Here it is. We are moving along. We have most of the tile and finish work done. The painters and soffit/fascia people are supposed to come next week. We're getting too close! If any of you have a friend/family member/acquaintance/ward member/former teammate/hair stylist/ anyone looking for a lovely townhouse, let us know.

Funny things 5 year olds say!

I love the things five year olds say. They are so observant and it amazes me at the words that they retain and repeat (even if they don't know what they mean). Today was the first day I picked Mar up from school since we had the baby (I wasn't cleared to drive because of the c-section until now). She saw me and ran to me yelling "Yea Mom, now everything is back to normal!". I assured her that we were slowly getting there. Then she said "Well, we are back to normal except for the baby, and he has to keep going in for circumcisions". HUH?

More Organization??

With three kids, I have been trying my darndest to think of ways to be more organized. It just seems like everything is out of place. So, everybody.......give me your thoughts, tips and organizing tricks PLEASE! One thing that Aaron and I started doing (that I am LOVING) is What is it, you say? A 5-7 day meal plan with easy and inexpensive meals to plan. You print out 2 pages per week. One has the meal plan and instructions/recipes. The other has a shopping list with everything organized in to different sections of the grocery stores, so it is fast and super easy!!

He's Here!!!

Our little guy is here! We are thrilled. He was born on Saturday morning via c-section and is doing great. He does have his nights and days mixed up which makes for a very tired Mama. Hope we can work that out soon. More pics to come!
