Too Much Fun All Dressed Up

After I got the kids ready for church...I had to take a picture of them...they just looked soooo CUTE! Matching and all. Of course, I had to match them too, but I was the one behind the camera. How did I end up with such happy kids?

Saturday Adventures

This last Saturday, the kids and I had some fun adventures! First stop, a garage sale. Now, I do not usually go to these things...but every once in a while, I get these crazy urges to go garage sale shopping! Maybe it's the fact that I just might find a GREAT bargain...but I'll never know unless I stop by! So, I did, and I found some great deals on summer clothes for Brianna...including a dress which she is modeling in the last picture. I love how Brianna gets so excited when she gets something new (well, new to her)...even from a garage sale...she must be my daughter!

After we did all the shopping, the weather was so great the kids got to spend some time playing in their sand table...making "blueberry sand pies", and plates of noodles, and corn...which is Brianna's favorite meal.
And this little guy wants to be just like his big sister. He always says, "Brianna, I love you. You're my best friend." Over, and over, and over is sooooo cute!!!! Totally melts a mom's heart!

Here is Brayden sporting his new Spiderman sunglasses (that match his prized posession..a spiderman bookbag) and holding his new Percy train (free from Toys R Us thanks to a great Aunt Molly)! This kid LOVES to get dressed up. If you look closely, you can see the huge kid snow gloves on his hands (about ten sizes too big!) and also from the garage sale, which he wore during and after his afternoon nap. What a silly guy!

Modeling her new garage sale treasure! Her special Hawaiian dress!

Pizza Time!

Last Friday night it was just me and the kids (Ryan's at a conference in Chicago), so we decided it had to be a pizza and movie night! Here is Brayden working hard at spreading the cheese onto the crust and into his mouth.
Brianna also had an important job of spreading the sauce...such concentration!

Here is the almost finished product (before the oven). What great helpers! By the way, we ended up watching the Jungle Book, and the kids LOVED it!!! What fun times!

Are You Up for a Challenge?

COMPLETELY COPIED FROM MY SISTER'S BLOG :(It's sounds like a fun idea):

I did copy her word for word!
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year.
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a song. It may be a self portrait or maybe even some creation I haven't yet dreamed up. I may draw. I may bake you something and mail it to you. It may not be big or impressive. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! But lets be honest here. This is me and I will likely do something amazing. =) So come on, sign up!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

Little the size of an avocado!

So on Friday Ryan and I took a trip to the doctor's office and we got to hear, for the first time, the heartbeat of our unborn 16 week old baby! (So for all of you that may not know...we are expecting busy B#3 August 23! TaaaDaahh!) It's kinda of funny because up until the first time you actually get to hear a heartbeat, some part of me seems to think that I am not really pregnant...even though I definatley feel physical changes. And then I am always amazed just by how mind boggling the entire process is, and how smart our Heavenly Father must be to know exactly what needs to happen to create a perfect child of God. So as of right now, we are having an, just kidding, but that's how big our baby is! Kinda of funny comparison though! At least it's not a jelly bean anymore...although Ryan is quite fond of those too!

Oh, and by the way... we ARE going to find out the gender, and timed perfectly....our ultrasound is scheduled for April Fools Day! hahaha
