Yay! He says my name so dang cute. I love how he thinks about it first. :)


Oh man! Stockton is a big boy. It makes me want to cry. My baby is getting older!! He is still talking about Disneyland and the Pirate ride. He makes a waterfall in the bath and send the pirate ship down. Looks like my job is done...he's hooked on Disneyland!!

Oh my this little guy is such a smiler!! I love his two little teeth...the top ones are on the way, too!

My children have the most beautiful blue eyes. You'd never think I would have toe-head children with blue eyes...genes.

This was posted on Jessica's blog and I was so taken I wanted to share. I feel this SAME way. Thanks, Jessica, for putting how I feel so eloquently.

I know every mother adores her children and thinks they are extraordinary (at least, I hope) but I must say--those feelings are very real and very powerful for me. I feel fortunate to have so much love and admiration for my children and to think they are so amazingly cute.

More than just loving my boys I LIKE them. I think they are fun company and I appreciate that they are not unmanageable or wild or mean. They are generous with their friendship and affection and I hope those are qualities they continue to develop and maintain as they mature.

Ally & Abby Turn 5!!!

These two best friends just turned 5!! Crazy!! They are not only cousins but best buddies. My cousin Sarah and I are close like that as well. Ally and Abby remind me of the good 'ole days.

I love this hat. How stinkin' cute!!
Great spread of delicious food!!

Stockton pretended this was a drive thru window and we all got great french fries and ice cream from him. I'm lovin pretend play :)
He'll shoot ya!!

Ally got a trampoline for her birthday and all the kids enjoyed jumping - with the sprinkler underneath, of course.I made this cute cake for their party. It was my first try with fondant. Yup those figures are made out of fondant. It was harder than I thought but turned out super cute. The cake was delicious and so big everyone got to take some home.

Make a wish!!

Barbies and Barbie clothes.
Happy Birthday, girls!! I love you!!

Cutie Cutes

Stockton is thrilled to have a backyard!! He has always loved the outside and is getting better at smiling for pictures.Carson also loves the outside. He enjoys watching his brother do crazy things. He's also pretty good for the camera. My boys are very photogenic.

First Foods and First Words

Carson looks a lot like his brother but is actually very different from Stockton. Carson loves to eat!! Praise the Lord for giving me at least one good eater. Carson will eat anything you put in front of him. Yesterday, I was feeding him these peaches when the oven dinged, I turned around to take the stuff out of the oven, and turned back around to this. Carson is at that 'grabby' age and will pull or grab ANYTHING - especially food. He later took a bath, but not before I got some cute shots.

Our month was blessed with Carson's first word..."Momma" YAY for me!!! Stockton said "Dada" and "Kachow" before mom so I was determined that this child would say my name first. I've withheld the desire to post waiting to make sure it was not just coincidence or wishful thinking, but he says, "Momma" loud and clear and mostly when he wants me to pick him up. I adore my boys and can't imagine my life without them.

The birthday party extravaganza's are in the works. Yeah I know I have 4 months, but when you put on a party like I do, you need all the time you can get! Stockton will be having a "Toy Story" party and Carson will be having a "Phineas and Ferb" party. Party decorations, ideas, menu, etc are accepted and appreciated. :)

Makin Punch...

One of Stockton's favorite things to do with his grandma is make punch. He likes measuring the sugar and stirring it (which he calls the "turn around, turn around") but before you can be done, he has to taste it. It's so funny! I know I've said it before, I LOVE this age and want to bottle it!

4th of July 2010

Carson Michael
Stockton Paul
Old Navy flag shirts are a tradition in our family. Stockton looks sad because about a half hour before this picture was taken he fell flat on his face..first bloody nose. It scared me more than it did Stockton.
First swim of the summer! Carson LOVED the big pool - but for some reason Stockton was scared. He still had fun in little pool.
Thomas the choo choo train is a new favorite.

Carson is as relaxed as ever. What a doll. I must say I have the cutest boys ever!

Baba in the water? Nothin' better.

All the kids enjoyed the little pool, complete with slide :)

Down-time with dad. Awe.

Talon had SO much fun now that he is a professional swimmer!
The lifeguards. Always counting heads.
