Spring Fever anyone?

The weather has been so great outside I love it and can't wait for Spring! The boys and I have been spending a lot of time out there enjoying the sun! We even had a pic-nic in the front yard. Here are a few pics.

Christian really wanted to dig in the dirt and kept asking for a shovel. The snow just melted so I had no idea where my garden tools were so I got the next best tools!! --Yes those are my Tulips and Daffodils coming up.

I was pulling weeds while they were playing so I had a rug to kneel on because the grass was a little wet. Then Christian absolutely needed to have one and he insisted the Landon have one too. It's a good thing I have 3 green rugs! (So we could all be alike)

I just couldn't leave this picture out!

So I'm a little behind!

I know it's been a while, very sorry. This post will be long because there are quite a few photos I would like to post.

Happy Valentine's Day!! I made brownies and the boys decorated them. The each got a large one, a medium one, and a bite size one to frost. I looked away for a second and when I looked back, Landon's bite size one was no where to be found, except there were traces of it at the corners of his mouth! And I don't think he understood to decorate them and not eat them. Oh yes, and he kept eathing the spoon of icing instead of putting it on his brownies!

Lunch at Mc Donald's!

We had some errands to run so we grabbed Grandpa to go along with us and we ate lunch together at Mc Donald's. I'm glad my Dad was with me I don't think I would have attempted it on my own. I don't know how you Mom's of more than one do it! (I guess I better get used to it pretty soon huh?)

Landon loved getting his picture taken this day. When he would see the camera he would smile and say "cheese"

What a little ham!
You can't go to Mc Donald's with out having a little fun!

Okay so that is a lot of photos. I have saved the rest for the next post. Check back soon!

For Family Home Evening this week, we decided to take a trip to the pet store. I was so excied to show Landon all the different animals. He loved every minute of it! It was so cute to see how excited he got with all of them. We didn't end up staying long because Jared is allergic to some animals and his allergies started to bother him. We had a great time while we were there! Maybe some day we'll be able to have a fish!



Hampsters, Rats, and Guinea Pigs.

Puppies. The little black one was so cute!

Boys will be boys!

These are my two "Koda Dogs" licking the H2O off the table. Koda is the name of Christian's dog and he always wants to pretend he is Koda. He likes to pretend Landon is Koda too.

Valentine's Day is coming up and every year I tell myself that I am going to send out little love notes/cards. Well, it never happens. This year I am a little more on top of it. The boys and I made some cards. (Hopefully I'll just get them in the mail now) Ok, so I had to do all the paper cutting and writing, but the boys did the rest (ie. putting everything together with double sided stickies and deciding on placement of each paper). They even did some writing themselves. Here's how it turned out.

First they are playing with the cows and bees.

If you will notice, Christian's envelope is nice and straight, while Landon's is the crumpled heap of paper just above where he is working.Here are the finished cards. They turned out pretty good. Christian was so exicited to finally be able to put his card in his envelope, along with a few scraps of paper that had "special" notes to Mom, Dad, and Koda. I could barely make sure everything was in there all the way before he had it licked and sealed.

I don't know if you can tell, but the card that Landon is pointing to; the cow's feet are pulling up off the paper.

Well, the bee's and cow's have the puffy stickers that make them stand out off the paper and Landon decided to put the 3 I gave him, on top of one another, so the cow is sticking way off the paper and probably won't be there for very long cause it's gonna fall off! I left it that way because that's what he wanted. (He also enjoyed putting the double sided stickies all clumped together as well!-sweet boy)

And the close ups.

Notice the children's writting on them. (In pencil) We didn't get very many made so it shouldn't be too hard to get them sent out!
