Spring Vacation

The kids and I spent the last few days of spring break visiting my parents in Medford. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a fabulous time. Austin decided he was going to live there forever and started calling my parents Mom and Dad and referred to me as Grandma. Jacob spent the better part of his time riding his bike, and Leah loved just being outdoors. She left with a pretty big crush on Grandpa - who wouldn't after he pushed her around the playground for 2 hours!

Our weekend was finished perfectly when we came home to find that Dad had spent the weekend without us painting the house! Goodbye blah baby blue! Unfortunately, the rain hampered his plans, so finished pics on that to come...

The 3 Rules of Throw-Up

1. It always happens in the middle of the night

2. It almost always happens in my bed

3. By morning, I am exhausted and my kids are miraculously cured

I am starting to think my kids have started a conspiracy against me......

Happy Birthday Petunia!

One year ago today, I had a little baby girl.
We named her Leah Rae, after mine and my maternal grandma's middle names.
These days, though, she rarely is called that. Usually it's something like

Sweet Pea
(but not Princess Leah, for obvious reasons)
Sunshine Girl

This little darling girl very quickly has become the center of our lives and our family. It has been amazing to see her brothers take care of her, love her, protect her and play with her. The last year has been a blessing in so many ways and I am so grateful that Heavenly Father sent this little angel to be the final piece in our family puzzle!

Mom, my hair is HILARIOUS

Austin decided last night that he wanted to try and trim his own hair. I wish I had thought to capture what his snipping resulted in, but here is what he looks like now, after his dad had to shave the rest of his head to match the shortest part:

Luckily this kid has a face that is gorgeous no matter what his hair looks like!
