Today has been a busy day!  Devin had to go to the high school he'll be working at next year for a "meet the teacher" day.  So, I loaded up the boys in the stroller and went over to Jessica's garage sale and got a Bumbo and a few cute shirts.  Thanks Jess!  

After taking my new treasures home, I decided to go for a run.  The weather was just beautiful.  It was so nice to be outside and my kids were so good.  Henry fell asleep in the jogger and looked adorable.  

When we got home, I still hadn't satisfied my craving for the sun, so I did some yard work.  After a while of playing outside, we needed a snack.  So, we went inside and I did some cleaning.  Henry went down for a nap and Jaxon helped me make bread.  I also made some cold slaw for bbq dinner tonight.  (Me doing something in the kitchen other than dishes is a pretty big deal, so 2 things, wow, unheard of!)

Now was about the time Devin came home and everything was cleaned up and the house smelled like yummy bread...he was pretty impressed!

With all of this going on, we also started POTTY TRAINING today!  We've had some accidents, but Jaxon pooped in the "big boy toy-let" and we were very excited about that!

Now off to bbq dinner at some of our awesome friends' house.  Yea!

Oh, here is a nice pic I took the other day while we were there...  What a blessing to have a temple so close and one being built even closer!
My sister in law, Elisha, wanted to get married in March and I totally see why.  The flowers there are so pretty!  Purples and pinks, my favorite!  Plus, the weather is incredible!  I love Arizona!

The text reads:
We were scheduled to have family pictures, but we had a little accident with the trimmers.  Mommy put the 3/8" comb on and when she asked Daddy if that was the right size he said it was.  But, as soon as Mommy started trimming, she knew something wasn't right.  Too bad she started in the front!  Jaxon didn't mind though.  He and Henry had matching hair!  (We decided to postpone family pictures until some of Jaxon's hair grows back.)  Jan. 31, '09.

Food Saver

I just want to say how wonderful this machine is!  I LOVE it!  My friend, Joy, got a super nice one for Christmas so she gave me her old one and it is awesome!  No more freezer burned food, people!  Who wouldn't want one?  I didn't know I would like it so much, but I am so thankful I have one!  Thanks, Joy!

PS...The best place to buy bags for it is at Costco.  They have 6 rolls for $37.  At WalMart, 4 rolls costs $39.

Our Ward

We just got back from our ward Valentine dinner.  I just have to say, I LOVE those people!  They are so much fun and so friendly, nice, funny, genuine, goofy, pretty much everything that makes for a good time.  Some people don't think you can have that much fun unless alcohol is involved, but I say just come to a Mormon party and you will have an awesome time and laugh until your cheeks hurt!

I just have to say how proud of Jaxon I was today when I asked him today where he was going to get married and he said, "In the temple."  I love that kid!

Oh, and we dropped Devin off at the church for a meeting and Jaxon wanted to go to nursery!  He had a real rough time at first, then he started to like it, then he had drama again and now he wants to go...yea!


Though scooping ice cream made me sore, I am able to hold Henry while I vacuum the whole house.  That's mommy muscle!

Eating Ice Cream = Working Out

So my pectoral muscles were sore the other day, mostly just my right one and I just could not figure out why.  I hadn't lifted weights or done any sort of work out so I had not idea why I would be sore...Then, last night I went to dish my ice cream and used my sore muscle.  I realized scooping ice cream had made my muscle sore!  Pathetic, huh?  Devin usually scoops it for me, and now I remember why!
