~*~Happy 3rd Boston~*~

Boston(red helmet) and Brit (blue helmet)

So as you all know I am staying at my sisters house and this is the only picture she had of Boston on her computer.  :)   

I can not believe that he is already 3 and that I have been a mom for that long.  Time goes by so fast and yet so slow!  

I read a quote somewhere (probably on some ones blog)  that said something like this..."as a mom the days go by slow and the years go by too fast!" I think that is so true.  Some days seem so long especially the winter months, however, right when I turn around Boston is already 3.  
He is a fun rowdy little boy.  He definetely keeps me and Jared on our toes and of course Lillie. He loves her so much.  So here are some things I really love about Boston!

#1:  He loves to cuddle with me in the morning.  He wants my face right next to his so our noses are touching.
#2:  I love the way that he knows exactly what he wants to wear.  If I pull the wrong thing out of his closet it is the end of the world.  :)
#3:  He has such a big heart and if someone else is crying he always want to make them feel better...unless of course he is the one who made that person cry.  ;)
#4:  He loves elderly people.  Our back door neighbors are some of his favorite people.
#5:  He loves all of his grandpa and grandmas.  Especially great grand parents!  
#6:  On the same lines he loves all of his cousins.  I am pretty sure that Sunday is his favorite day of the week so he can go to both grandparents and see all his cousins.
#7:  I love to listen to him give prayers.  He is so quiet and so reverent.  He does such a good job.
#8:  He is a pretty coordinated boy for only being 3.  Uncle Dan thinks you are going to be a gymnast, or a baseball player, or a soccer player.  He runs so fast and can flip so fast.  He is not afraid to jump off anything and go into a perfect front roll.  
#9:  I love when I put him to bed and we read scriptures, say prayers, and right before I get out of his room he says "love ya mom!!"
#10:  The way he treats Lillie.  Sometimes he beats her up and likes to tease her but for the most part he keeps an eye out for her.  He told her yesterday before church "Lillie Lou you look so pretty!!"

Thanks Boston for being the best little boy mom could ask for!  :)  Love you lots and hope you have a great birthday!

And so it begins....

So i don't feel like this yet...but soon time will tell!!!

My crazy life of being a mother to six!!  I probably won't be to good at posting over the next three weeks.  Me and Jared are watching my sisters four kids.  Her and her husband are so lucky and get to go on a 18 day Mediterranean Cruise!  Yes you read that right...18 days!!  Luckily her kids are at good ages and go to school full time.  But still...I just spent three hours doing homework.  From math, to writing a short story, to reading, reading some more, and lastly studying for a scripture mastery test!!!  An hour and a half at Wal-Mart and hundreds of dollars later!  LOL!!  Wish me luck!  Luckily I do have a great husband who loves my sisters kids and is willing to help in any way possible!  Yay for a family of 8!!

~Day Off~

Last Friday Jared took the day off! I don't think he has ever taken the day off 'just because!!'    Anyway we had such a fun day.  We slept in--well kinda!  Lillie woke up pretty early--6:45! She loves Cinderella so I got up put Cinderella on and then went back to bed.  Like an hour later I woke up and I could hear someone kicking our t.v. so Jared ran in and Lillie was on top of our t.v. and watching Cinderella from over the top!  Hilarious!  I always thought since Boston was my climber I wouldn't get another one but lucky me...I have two!  

So we just hung out all morning made a big breakfast, watched a show, read books, took naps, went to the grocery store.  Then in the afternoon we went to Jumpin Jacks!  We have not been to JJ's since last February and Lillie hated it.  So I was excited to see what she thought...and she loved it.  Her and Boston played so good.  Boston is such a little dare devil.  He has no fears.  He will go on the highest slides all by himself.  He loves it.  It was such a fun day.  After Jumpin Jacks we went and took Boston to my brother Tyler and Lillie to my parents and me and Jared went up to Kandas's cabin for the night.  It was fun to go be with friends, play games, stay up late, and of course end the evening with Brian Regan!  :)  
Jared has decided he needs to take more days off work...I totally agree!  

Me and Lillie--she is totally loving it.

Kids climbing up the slide all by themselves!

Jared and Lillie

We love it when Dad takes a day off to play with us!

The biggest sTuD ever!!

Hanging out at the cabiN!

Adam, Jamie, Matt, Tiff, Riley, Kandas, Jared, and me!

It is true!  I accomplished a project!  All of my friends lately have been into making aprons.  I think they are so cute.  So my sister in law, Jenni, was here from Texas and we were trying to think of something to do with six kids! HMM!!  A sewing project.  Okay so probably not the best idea but it was fun.  We got our pattern from Kandas and it looked liked something we could master.  All of my in-laws sew.  I have not sewn anything since Mrs. Irvines 9th grade sewing class.  But I have to admit that I really liked it and the more I did the easier I got.  It is all about CONFIDENCE when you are sewing.  :)  They turned out really cute!  Thanks for your help ladies.     

No laughing~!  I am just learning!

Jamie...quite the little seamstress!
THE FINISHED PRODUCT!  Me and my cute sister and mother in-laws!!!
