Happy Anniversary

7 years......................................... I have a wonderful husband who supports me and even thinks I'm funny. He works hard so I can stay home and raise our 3 little munchkins. No anniversary plans unless staying up a full 24 hrs with a sick girl and spending part of the night at urgent care and the early morning in the ER. At least we spent it together and both lack the same amount of sleep. That is all that matters. I can't wait for next year.

I will post a picture later-I'm to tired to do it tonight

Natural History Museum

I'm a cowboy

Last week Dan and I took the kids to the Natural History Museum in Mesa. We had a great time and I would recommend to anyone.

The Garden

It seems like everyone is growing a garden but I have to say how proud and excited I am of my garden, I even compost! It seems like Dan does most of the watering and TLC but I do help. Last year we had a little garden and this year we make it bigger and took the square foot concept. Dan works with a guy who intoduced us to the concept and we have learned so much. I love going out everyday and looking at the plants and harvesting what I can. I love the fact that I have not had to buy produce in 2 months. Next garden season will be even bigger and I hope next spring our fruits will produce and we will have apples, peaches, strawberries and grapes. I'm banned from the nursery because everytime I go I come back with something else to plant.


I think he is smiling because he spit-up when I took the picture
Making sure all of my eggs are in the basket
I love this picture of Michael's expression when he saw his Easter basket

Mattie and Mom (look at that tongue)


rocks and a swing-what a good combination

I wonder what he is looking at

Don't you love the p.j.'s

There is so much to say about Michael. First is he is a busy little boy who has a wonderful imagination. He is full of creativity,questions and happiness. Michael wakes early and will stay up late if I let him. He is a great big brother to Mattie and David. This morning there was a chocolate milk incident and it had spilled all over the carpet in the front room. I was cleaning the carpet and David is in the bouncer crying because his bottle fell and Michael sits on the floor next to him and starts feeding him. Micheal is very protective of Mattie. Mattie is not always a big fan of the vacuum cleaner and he will pick her up and move her to the next room so she won't be scared. Mattie won't let us get her out of the crib in the morning until Michael comes in to her room. As soon as she sees him she smiles, sits up and starts laughing. Michael loves to play with his friends or any little boy or girl that he meets. He is always inviting little kids to come over and play. Micheal loves to play ghostbusters and still wears his ghostbuster Halloween costume from last year. About a month ago I had a rope tied to my bed and when I asked him what is was for he told me it was to keep the ghost away. He also likes to play spiderman, storm trooper and Indiana Jones. Michael loves to play with his cars, army stuff, little figurine guys (spiderman, batman, star wars guys), trains and anything else. My house is scattered with his toys because he goes from room to room playing with them. I tried to put a limit to how many toys he can bring out but it only works for a day or two.


Michael and David
First bite of food (green beans)

David is quickly approaching 6 months and he is growing so fast and quickly catching up to Mattie. David had his well check about a month ago and he weighed 15 lbs and was 26 inches long. He and Mattie have the same size feet. David loves to be held and will only do a little bit of chill time before he gets fussy and wants you to pick him up. We have been giving him rice cereal for about a month in his bottle and last week I gave him green beans. He was not a big fan green beans and every time I gave him some he would groan. This week I started him on sweet potato and he can not get enough of them. I'm not sure what next weeks adventure will be.

Does anyone have a good book I can borrow? I promise I will take care of it and give it back to you.
