~Best Friends, Bowling, and Bruises~

Boston totally has a best friend and it is the cutest thing in the world.  In the morning I get him all bathed and dressed for the day and he automatically thinks he is going to Hunters house to play!   When I tell him no we are going to the grocery story...he gets mad.  However, it is easy to distract his attention with saying we will stop and get a powdered sucker and then all is well.  And  yes he asks me specifically for powdered suckers!  :)  So back to the best Friend thing!  Him and Hunter love to play with trucks, diggers, back hoes, swimming, run away from any adults present, and we tried something new last weekend...bowling!  Totally fun and they both loved it for about 3 frames and then Boston was totally done.  However, Hunter played all ten frames!  I was just dying at  how little the bowling shoes came.  Jared had to tie his laces up around his ankles.  
Boston has been so naughty lately and I am really struggling with him and I think everyone knows it.  I am constantly getting advice from anyone and everyone.  To an extent I like it on the other hand it is hard because I am a true believe in every child is different and what worked with one is not going to work with the other.  And I think he is really rowdy and probably bugs a lot of people but at the end of the day he is my little boy who I would never trade in a million years.  He is a very fun loving person and he thinks everyone is his grandpa.  When we walk into church or even in Maceys to our bagger.  He says hello grandpa!  He is very smart and keeps me and Jared on our toes!  I know that one day these terrible twos will pass.  As hard as he is I don't know what I would do with out his morning snuggles, his good night kisses, and his daily smile!  
Now where do I start with Lillie...poor girl she has been walking for a month and you think she would be good at it but she is my little drunk.  She is constantly with a new bruise on her head.  However the bruise on her forehead is from the neighbor boy pushing her in her stroller with out buckling it and she fell out on her head!   :(  I was not too happy about that.  She is still my sweet little angel who I am so grateful I have.  She can warm my heart without a moments notice.  Lately she has been getting into everything.  My new motto is...oh well!  Ha hA!

~Spring Break~

So my two nieces were so cute! They had spring break this week and they wanted to stay at Aunt Katies for spring break (they live in Spanish Fork so not all that cool to come to salem)! :) They are 15-Allie- and 10-Sydnie-! They have been so much fun. My kids absolutely love and adore them! They help with baths, cleaning, walks, playing, reading, getting juice, and whatever else the kids or I have needed! I love them both! I have one other niece, Brooklyn, on my side and she is in Georgia! We will have to catch her next time. I am so grateful for family and how close they are and that I am able to spend time with them!

Unfortunately true. I think...

I saw this on Robbie and Steph's blog so I thought I would give it a shot. Besides the dorky brown-guy pic that they assigned to me I think that they are pretty close. Any thoughts?

What's Your True Color?

Jared, your true color is Brown!
You're brown, a credible, stable color that's reminiscent of fine wood, rich leather, and wistful melancholy. Most likely, you're a logical, practical person ruled more by your head than your heart. With your inquisitive mind and insatiable curiosity, you're probably a great problem solver. And you always gather all of the facts before coming to a timely, informed decision. Easily intrigued, you're constantly finding new ways to challenge your mind, whether it's by reading the newspaper, playing a trivia game, or composing a piece of music. Brown is an impartial, neutral color, which means you tend to see the difference between fact and opinion easily and are open to many points of view. Trustworthy and steady, you really are a brown at heart.

What are you?

I am way excited for my niece Allie(I can't believe I have a niece old enough to be in high school let alone try out for cheer).  She is a sophomore this year and last week she tried out for cheer at SF and made it!!  She has danced all of her life and so moving from dance to cheer can be tough but she did a pretty good job!  :0   Thanks to Josee for helping her.  It really did help her a ton and she thought Josee was so cute and she could not believe that Josee had had a kid.  She just thought Josee was too tiny to have carried a baby in there!  LOL!!  Anyway we are way excited for her and very proud of her too!!  Congrats Allie!  We love you tons...
