*Me and Jagger*

I was taking pictures of Hunter and Jagger today (Skyla was asleep) and Hunter said "Can I take some pictures of you and Jagger?" I usually don't let him touch my camera but today I thought, why not! Anyway, here are a couple of pictures he took of us:)


Here's some random fun shots:

My sis in law Jen got this hat in Russia for my Mom and Skyla wanted to try it on. Cute girl!

At the beginning of the season we started out with 10 Deer and now we're down to 8...I love living here!

*Snow Day*

The kids LOVE when it snows!
Chris went out to shovel at like 7:30 and the kids where dressed and ready to go.

*Valentines Day*

We had a great Valentines Day. Chris was able to have Breakfast with us. With school being crazy we didn't get to really "celebrate" Valentines Day but he did get me an awesome mug, a fun singing card, some slippers and a sleeping mask which has been the most wonderful gift I have EVER gotten. I am a girl who COULD NOT take a nap, not when I'm pregnant and exhausted, not EVER. I tried it out the other day while the kids where sleeping and I fell asleep for 2 hours! It's so dark, it's incredible! Now I can pretty much take a nap whenever all three kids are napping (maybe 2 times a week:) Anyway, Hunter had a Valentine Day party at school and he came home so Happy, he said he had the best time! He showed us all of his Valentines and then shared some of his treats with us. What a sweet boy!

This is Hunter's Valentines Box that he made at school.

My new Mug:)
After naps we made Sugar Cookies...Jess literally came right when we were ready to them so she decided to stick around and help:)

We also made some chocolate chip cookies to take around to my Visiting Teaching girls:)
Fun Day, we wish Chris could have been with us but we definitely made the most of it:)

*Sunday Picnic*

John and Tammy left around 10:30 on Sunday Morning. We figured by the time we got ourselves and the kids ready we would only get to about 1/2 hour of church so instead we had a little lesson at home and had a picnic on our bed. We brought out a wood tray thing and the kids sat on a blanket and watched the Apple Dumpling Gang. Good times:)


We were lucky enough to see John, Tammy, Tanner, and Addi. We weren't supposed to see them until this summer but with some change of plans we go to have everyone but John stay with us from Wednesday to Sunday. It was SOOOO good to be with them. I feel like we're missing out on so much with them because they live in Colorado, so it was fun to play with little Tanner and meet our beautiful little Niece Addi. We kept it pretty low key and just hung out. One of the days we took some pictures of Baby Addi. (She is about 5 weeks old here)

The kids got along really well for the most part. Tanner is a ball of energy and he liked to pull Skyla's hair, it was actually pretty funny...poor thing:)

This is the Friday night that John came. Chris took all of the kids to go pick him up from the airport...what a daring man. He didn't get in until around 9:30 so they watched a movie until it was time to go. Doesn't Chris look exhausted? He has been staying at the school Mon through Thur from 7:30 or 8:00 in the morning until midnight then Friday and Sat 7:30 am til around 5:30...poor guy, I wish I could do something for him!
Tanner LOVED Uncle Chris:)
Saturday was soo much fun. Sean and Tom's families came down and all the boys took the kids to Jumping Jacks and the girls hung out at the house and then we had a yummy dinner and some amazing cake (courtesy of Tori) It was Tanners second birthday on Friday so we celebrated with everyone. What a cute boy! Anyway, we are so grateful that we got to hang out with our amazing family and can't wait to see them again in the Summer...it can't come fast enough:)

*Valentine Crafts*

I LOVE doing crafts with my kids. We did several things for Valentines Day but I'll have to add pictures later because their not all on my computer. We talked Daddy into helping us for about 15 minutes before he had to go to school. These are little hearts made with Starch Glue and yarn and then you bake them and their little ornaments.

*Jagger Eating Solids*

My sweet baby Jagger is eating solids. It has been very different for us with him, our other two kids had to eat solids right at 4 months because they were so tiny and threw up milk. I have to admit it was nice waiting. I don't think he loved it but I don't think he hated it either:)
Hunter helped later that day, he is such an awesome big brother to Jagger!


I know this is not a big deal to most everyone but this is HUGE for me! Chris got me a sewing machine for Christmas and I used it for the first time. I literally only stitched a straight line, but it turned out so good!:) For those of you who know me this really is a big deal, my mom would just staple things that needed to be put back together so for me to know how to sew a straight line...gosh that's exciting stuff:)
