My big grown-up Layton...

How has Layton gotten so big??? He brought this book home today that he made in preschool during March. Every day they focused on a different shape and color, and the animals in the book are made up of those different shapes. This is his first time reading it to me. He knows it by heart and made all the pictures all by himself. What a sweetheart!

Babies Don't Keep!

Some things seem so important at the time, then you look at your babies and they aren't babies anymore. Where does the time go? This is something that I need to remember everyday!

St Patricks Day ...

The night before St Patricks day we set a trap for a leprechaun. When the boys woke up they ran to it to set if we had caught him! We didn't catch him this time but that naughty leprechaun had made a big mess of our house! Gold must have fallen out of his pockets while he was doing it though, because we found gold all over the room!

He even turned our toilet water green!

They both found lots of gold!

We had green shamrock shaped pancakes, with green yummy syrup. I don't know how but everything I made turned green! That naughty leprechaun must have put a magic spell on our house!

Layton got ready for preschool.

And while he was there, Parker and I made cookie dough, which of course turned green too!

The boys wanted to have a picnic lunch, but it wasn't nice weather outside. So they had one on the floor in the family room :)

Then we rolled out the cookie dough, and cut it out into shamrock shapes.

and decorated them with green sprinkles :)

They were so so yummy!

We finished our day with a (food coloring free) dinner of green noodles, green grapes, green beans, and green jello (which I'm sure had food coloring in, but at least I'm not the one who put it there!)

Happy St. Patricks day everyone, we sure had a lot of fun!

Monster Truck Jam...

Lance and my brother Scott took the boys (plus Katie :) to the Monster Truck Jam in Salt Lake. They rode Trax in to the ESA.

Grave Digger was their favorite.

They even got the awesome grave digger hats :)

I call for more boys day's out like this, the boys loved it and of course I loved the day off too!

Ahh Spring!...

Spring has been in the air. It was so nice outside last week we had a picnic outside, and then I read a book and took a nap on a blanket in the sun while the boys played. Yay, spring is almost here for good!!!

Valentines day... Wow, I am really behind!...

Lance and I don't make a huge deal of Valentine's day, usually he gives me flowers (which I love!) and I give him something little and make a nice dinner. So this year for my gift to him, I had this in his truck when he left for work in the morning. It is a cute saying using a bunch of treat names in it. Then of course I gave him a basket of all the treats, and put a bunch of love saying's around his truck.

He thought it was cute, and It was something that was relatively easy to do. Although finding some of the treat's in the saying was a little tough here in Fillmore!

Valentines Day With the Kids...

I love Valentines Day. I always try to have decorations and a few little presents set up for the boys when they wake up.

Haha, Layton was still a little sleepy.

Opening the presents.

Aggh, super blurry picture!

Hugs for Daddy.

They each got a superhero art set, a movie (Layton got Spiderman, Parker got Backyardigans) pajamas, a shirt, shoes, a book, a notepad and pen, and a pack of starbursts

Parker wanted to use his little art set right away.

All dressed up in their super cute Valentine shirts.

And heart shaped Cinnamon toast for breakfast :)
