Lately I feel like I have no spare time…which is a good thing but when I do have spare time to do things that I should be doing, I do things that aren’t necessarily bad but totally waste time. like play bubble shooter on my itouch (totally addicting, especially when you play the whirl mode) I haven’t gotten past level nine yet…. or Pinterest. This one I love though because it gives me so many ideas of things I want to create and they are usually cheap. Speaking of I need to run to the craft store and buy a whole list of things. Then besides those two things and taking care of the kids I have been consumed by work. I have a new job with the same company and I love it! So far things are great! 

Here are a few projects on my to do list:


So we will see how many of these I actually get done…let me know if you want an invite to Pinterest cuz it’s so fun! Just know that it’s addicting!

We met up with friends today to get the kids (especially the school aged ones) out of the house. Summer is hard because it’ so stinkin’ hot here and it’s not fun to just play outside. We met the Burningham’s and Sanderson’s at Jambo. We were sad to say good-bye to Sarah since she is moving. But we were glad to see her one more time. Here are a few pictures from the day.photoThey look like they are playing so well together, only seconds later Kamryn pushed him down for no reason.

photo 2    Kamryn felt like such a big girl going on the ride all by herself! photo 3 photo 4Keegan wasn’t sure sure what all these rides were about…

 photo 5Kade loves this picture. I think it will look great on their Wedding invitation! Kade reminded me on our way there that he was going to marry SaraJane and that she is sooo cute!  We had lunch after at Culver’s and SaraJane went to sit by Kade and eat her ice cream. He sat there and told her all about what happens in Wimpy Kid 2. She just listened and smiled. :)

Sarah and Jenna have iphones and are able to make cool collages with their pictures they took on their camera…so I stole their collages off their blogs…

More birthday pictures…

So Ryan got tickets to the Diamondbacks game on Kamryn’s birthday and the seats were so great that we couldn’t pass them up. So we went to the game. (Horrible parents huh?)P1050348When we were gone the UPS package from my parents showed up so Kamryn and Keegan had to wait to open their presents until the next day.

 P1050349  P1050351  P1050353Keegan was more interested in the balloon. Who care about presents…right?  P1050355 P1050356  P1050358  P1050360 P1050361 P1050362  P1050364 P1050365 P1050366  P1050368 P1050369 P1050371   P1050376This is for you mom, you wanted one of her in her dress…she wasn’t too happy about getting her picture taken though.  P1050378

Kamryn’s 2nd Birthday!

Yesterday Kamryn turned 2! She is definitely in the terrible twos but I remember that I thought that the threes were worse so I am enjoying it while I can!  We took Keegan’s swing back and between us and birthday money from relatives we bought Kamryn and Keegan this cool little play set to keep them busy!P1050298This is a picture of before Kamryn tried going down the stairs and ate it! She has a fat lip now…I didn’t do a very good job of getting  a picture of the entire thing…maybe another day. P1050299

We had a fun little party and invited some friends over for some Tangled fun! I just couldn’t resist a Tangled themed birthday party since Kamryn and I LOVE the movie so much! We played pin the frying pan on Flynn…or Kamryn did. (It was a little crazy with all the kids!) I didn’t do a very good job of taking pictures of all the fun decorations and activities. We drew on the walls (of course they were covered in paper) and colored with sidewalk chalk on the patio and we were going to make these cute 3-D Paskels but the kids wanted to play instead and it is hard to stay organized with kids ranging from 1-3 yeard old. I guess that’s why I’m not a preschool teacher! All in all it was lots of fun. I had hanging lanterns and purple flag banners with gold suns on them. If you have seen the movie then you will see why I did all those activities.

 P1050303 P1050345P1050304Originally I wanted to make a tower cake but lack of time and planning landed us with this one…which Kamryn got to when we had our heads turned. She just wanted to get Rapunzel off! P1050306 P1050307She enjoyed everyone singing to her. A week and a half earlier she learned the Happy Birthday song when we sang to Keegan and she has been singing it almost every day since. She was happy to hear everyone singing it to her! P1050308 P1050310 P1050311So proud of herself for blowing out the candle!

Some of the friends that came to celebrate and of course have some cake and ice cream! P1050317 P1050318    P1050312I put a sheet down for the kids to eat their cake on for easier cleanup…Keegan thought it meant it was time for a nap!

Soiled little girl got lots of fun presents to keep her busy! Thanks to all the friends for coming and for their sweet gifts.

We were so happy to have everyone come. It’s fun to get together to celebrate! We don’t have much family here in AZ so it’s fun to celebrate special days with friends! Thanks again everyone!
