Alright as you can see, I started an Etsy store. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to post a link on their blog if so let me know. Thanks (maybe I can repay you with a hand made treasure)

Last week we spent Thursday up at the lake with Jessica & Nate, it was the perfect way to spend the day. We had a great time, Tyler enjoyed swimming, and making new friends with the other kids who came, Jack cried at first, but once he adjusted he too had a great time. Jack and Nate played in the sand and were very cute together. Nate is such an affectionate big brother, it is so sweet how much he loves his little Sam. Nate would just hover over him, and want to hug him all the time, so cute. I really enjoyed being out in nature, and just relaxing, I felt like I was on vacation. It was good to get away for the day.

Thanks Jessica for the invite, lets go again.

Dr. Pearson's Pool Party
Saturday morning was Dr. Joe Pearson's annual pool party, we had a great time. It was nice to see all my old coworkers, and remember the good times I had working for Dr Pearson. The party was great and the boys were tired when we left. Friends, fun, music, prizes, mini beach balls, fake tattoos, food, the pool, what more could you ask for?

We played dodge ball with all these mini beach ball, the boys loves it. We even got to bring one home with us.
I didn't want to get my hair wet, so Dr. Joe was kind enough to take Tyler down the water slide. Tyler kept asking him to go again, I think they went 4-5 times. Tyler loved it.
Jack loved the food, the balls, and of course hated the water.
Dr. Pearson is an awsome orthodontist if anyone is in need of straight teeth.

Happy Birthday Jack
Today Jack turned two. We started the day by opening presents, Jack got a dump truck, and some action figures. I think Tyler was more excited about getting new toys then Jack. Jack seemed to really enjoy being the center of attention, he really enjoys being loved.
The family had cake and sang to Jack a few days early. Tyler and Jack picked out a Cars cake from the store. Jack loves the movie Cars, he calls it liling mqueen.

I think Jack enjoyed the cars over the cake.
Tyler enjoyed the frosting, and didn't eat his cake. Jack put his face right into the cake, I guess he didn't want to get his hands messy.

I can't believe my baby is 2 already, I feel like I just had him. Jack is such a fun little guy full of energy and love. He was never a snugly baby, but he has turned into a very snugly toddler. Yesterday I think he gave Mike about 30 kisses, back and forth from one cheek to the other.
Jack loves to read and has for as long as I can remember, I will often find him sitting down with a book in his lap soaking up the pictures.
Jack leads with his head, what I mean is he walks, runs head first, so needless to say he almost always has a bruise on his forehead.
I think Jack is a lot like Mike in many ways, he is very stubborn and determined, when he wants something he doesn't take no for an answer.
New things tend to make Jack a little nervous, he is cautious, and it takes him a while to warm up to new environments.
I love this little guy he is a sweet little mamas boy, I am so thankful he is my son. I have learned a lot from him.

After finishing a baby bracelet for a baby shower I realized I had nothing to wrap it in. I remember making boxes as a child, my Grandma Harrison taught us how. I decided to give it a try, some things are like riding a bike you never forget. As I folded this box I thought about my Grandmother, what a wonderful woman full of wisdom, and experience. I am grateful for the things she has taught me, and the example she is to me. Grandma Harrison is a great story teller, and a wonderful writer. I love listening to all her life stories, it is fun to hear about the roads she has traveled in life, and the things she has experienced. It helps to give me a taste of where I come from. I love you Grandma.
