STOP time!

Monday, February 28, 2011

My birthday was this past Saturday. It was my golden birthday:) 26 on the 26th! We went to dinner on Friday night with my parents and then Charlie, myself, and the kids strolled Target. Love that place. Saturday Charlie had to work. I had to work some in the morning too. The rest of the day I just spent at home with the kids. I asked Savi to say "Happy Birthday Mommy" and she did. So nice of her:) Then Charlie's mom covered for him at work so he could come home early. He got home at 6pm which was a nice surprise. He had a cake and chinese food in tow. Perfect evening.

My birthday is not why I want to stop time. It is because my precious little ones are growing to fast! Savi is now sitting in a booster seat at the adult table. And little Charlie fits just barely in the highchair:) And look at him trying so hard to lift up on his knees for operation crawl! Love them so much!

She now has the perfect use for her placemat her Great Aunt Susie gave her:)

Crawling is on its way.....

Wonderful Wednesday

Thursday, February 17, 2011

We had such a great day yesterday. First we started off with some sticker fun. The child loves stickers:) I always have them in the diaper bag in case we are somewhere with a long wait. They are an instant life saver!

Silly girls:)

We later met up with a friend of mine and her daughter for a playdate. Her daughter, Sophia, is only one month younger than Savi. We met up at the mall. They ran off some good energy. Very fun for Savi. Then we ate lunch. A great time!

Sophia and Savi playing!

Sonic break after all that hard playing:)

After we got home, my mother in law called and asked if Savi could come spend the night. My husband planned to go out to his parents anyway today, so it worked out for him to go pick her up. She picked Savi up around 4ish and it was just me and baby C for the night. I got in some housework, and some special one on one time with my sweet baby.

All in all a great day:)

Baby C had his first cereal 2/9. We are still working on the whole swallowing thing, but he is getting better and better at it.

All ready for cereal!

Whoa...what is that!?

Now what?

Gimme...I want to try!

This is pretty good!

Look, I can do it all by myself:)

Valentine's Pictures

Monday, February 14, 2011

I took the kids on Saturday for a little mini valentines session with our photographer. I had done one as a surprise for Charlie 2 years ago with just Savi for her first vday. So I decided to do it again, but with both kids of course. These are a few that I have seen so far.....

Happy Valentine's Day!

Monday, February 14, 2011

I decided to do a few things this year for valentines day. First I saw at kroger these really cute candy bouquets. They wanted $20-$35 for them. I poked at them and saw they were super easy to make. So I made a big one and a little one for Charlie and Savi!

I had vases already. Fill them up with whatever candy you want.

Glue candy to dowel rods or skewers. I had skewer already also!

Use either cellophone or tissue paper and poke thru wherever you want. Total cost was probably $5 each. (I bought my candy early and on maybe add a dollar or two if it was full price)

Savi loved it and immediately picked a "candy flower" to eat!:)

My sis gave me the idea of making little red velvet heart cakes. You just buy cake mix and spread thinly on a cookie sheet. Bake 10 min ( I baked longer bc my sis didn't answer the phone when I was baking and wasn't sure what to do. She called back to late after I baked for 20 min! Luckily they were still ok) Cut out shape of choice. Then I used cream cheese icing. I colored it pink and made little cakes for work. Yummy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sweet Moments

Thursday, February 10, 2011

We read every night to Savi. She picks out a couple of books and hasn't entered the stage yet of picking a gazillion. She picks a few and when were done she happily climbs in bed:) Then we pray and do nose kisses. When I'm by myself, I usually put baby C somewhere safe and let him play. I have discovered that if I put him in my lap, he loves to look and listen as I read to Savi. So now we have family book time. I love it.

The moments that make my life perfect!

Cute as a Button

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Here is Savannah all bundled up to go outside for a total of 5 minutes. It is just to cold to stay out any longer. But all day last week after the snow hit...."snow, snow, go outside"....:)

Baby Charlie caught up on some reading and stayed warm inside:)

Always have loved that funny:)

So my blogging hiatus has been due to the crazy weather and crazy times at my work leading up to the superbowl! So much to do and not enough time! Oh and the whole 2 kids under 2 thing doesn't help:)

So last weekend we had a beautiful day of 70's weather and I took the kids out to play of course! Baby C had a picnic of toys and Savi enjoyed her sand box. It was perfect!

Then came the fun weather....

G'Nosh and Cowboy Boots!

Monday, February 07, 2011

My friends birthday was a couple weeks ago. I decided to take her on a surprise outting. She was asking lots of questions so I decided to throw her off. I told her to be sure to bring her cowboy boots to work that day. She was TOTALLY thrown off and confused. It was so fun:) She did not need those boots at all, because we went to G'Nosh. It is a really neat place where they have you sit in a class with easels and paint ready to go. You have a pre set painting that you are going to paint. A teacher stands up at the front and teaches you how to paint it with little tricks and things. Anyone can do it, I swear. No talent needed. It was so fun!

1/2 way done....

Final product:) It's a peacock just in case you can't tell.
