Growing up!

We got pictures taken of the boys at the Picture People.  We love going there if we only need a few pics, otherwise it gets kind of expensive.  They turned out cute, I love my little men!

Here's Jake at 3 1/2 years

And Evan at 15 months

I love this picure!!  I wish Jake was smiling a litle more, but I love the serious look on both of their faces, and to me they look like little news reporters!  :)

Everyday Life

 One of Jake's favorite things to do is playdough.  We do the homemade kind over here because it NEVER dries out, it's awesome!!  Jake's favorite movie right now is Mosters Inc. so he wanted me to help make Mike :)
 The boys with one of their besties, Jack!
 Morning sunshines!

 This was a Pinterest idea, and I l.o.v.e. it.  Just pour a thin layer of baking soda in a dish and color some vinegar with food coloring, get an old medicine dropper and let the kids go to town.  The baking soda and vinegar together makes it fizz, it's pretty cool.

 I LOVE having access to beaches all year long!!

 This picture cracks me up big time.  All three boys watching a movie with the same look on their faces and drinking milk at the same time.  Love it.
 Bahahaha, I would say "Poor Evan" but he got in there voluntarily!

Hoppy Easter 2012!!!

We celebrated Easter Sunday at my parents' house this year.  It was convenient that General Conference was also this weekend, so we went down on Friday night and stayed until Sunday night.  We always have a blast when we're at their house!  We had an Easter egg hunt in the morning, watched some Conference, relaxed, ate lots of candy, and of course a nice Easter Sunday dinner.  Fun stuff right there!!

 Sleepy Evan just waking up from a nap.  He got this cool truck in his basket, bubbles, some new binkies, and candy :)

 Jake got this Superhero cape and mask and he was HILARIOUS with it!!  He would put his fist up the air like Superman and run around as fast as he could to see the cape flying behind him.  Wore him out too, which is also a plus ;)

 Easter egg hunt and decorating cookies with friends!

 Evan's favorite part was the cookies, haha.  Finger lickin good!

 Easter outfits :)  What handsome little men!!!!

Happy Easter!!!  On a more spiritual note, I'm sooooo grateful to know that I have a Savior, that he died for me and for everyone so that we can be forgiven of our many sins so that we may live with our Heavenly Father and Savior again someday.  I'm grateful for His ultimate sacrifice and will forever be indebted to Him.  I know He loves me and I know He lives!!!

Lots of Green and Pillows

We had fun with food this St. Patty's Day.  I try to do fun holiday food but sometimes it just doesn't happen.  But the luck o' the Irish was upon us this year because it happened! ;)  Jake wanted green noodles, and that's what he got.  Just add a little gel food coloring to the water when it's boiling and you can have any color noodles you want!  We do this all the time now.

 Green beef stroganoff, green beans, green breadsticks and green colored soda.  And lots of food coloring, yummo!!  haha

 Silly boy

 Later that night ALL the pillows in the house randomly ended up on our floor and the boys had the time of their lives jumping on them and burrying themselves.  They did this for like an hour and would've done more if bedtime hadn't come around.  Seriously need to do this more often!!  Easy cleanup too ;)
