we are dog sitting for our neighbors while they are in Hawaii. this is their dog, his name is Jimmer. he is a very sweet, well mannered dog, he loves the kids, and most of all loves me. he follows me wherever i go and is always a willing buddy to sit next to. some funny things about his visit are - when they brought him, the also brought his cage, which he slept in the first few nights, after that he decided he would rather not and has started to refuse to go in... so now he sleeps with us at the foot of our bed. they also said he doesn't go on the sofa.. well the kids favorite thing to do is sit on the couch and call him up to cuddle. we may have ruined their dog. :) either way, we are very happy to have him and will be quite sad when his family gets back.

I just registered Carson for kindergarten! Can you believe it, he is going to school!? I know he is ready, i know he will love it, but suddenly all the feelings i had when Emma went are all coming back! What if he doesn't make good friends, what if they are mean to him, what if he doesn't like his teacher, what if he gets homesick and the worst thought/realization of all... there is no going back to him being little... and that i hate!

Tonight David and Abby are spending the night. We met Liz halfway for lunch and pick up the kids were so excited and couldn't wait to start the fun! This afternoon they have played a variety of games downstairs. They also went for a treasure hunt in the snow... i would hide small toy and they would search for it. A big hit if
i do say so myself! tonight pizza dinner, redbox, popcorn and hot cocoa. for the finale all the kids get to sleep together on Harry and Carsons bunk beds, they are so excited! i will post more pics through out the night.

Dallin is getting bigger and is wanting to be entertained more and more. So it was time to bring out the next round a fun toys. He loves it and has no problem me letting him chill there for a few minutes. I love the self entertainment phase. :)

Today has been so fun. with the help of Sherrie I decorated the house with hearts and "XOXO" I love it! This morning i made the kids a heart shaped breakfast - eggs, hashbrowns and sausage, all in the shape of a heart. after the kids went to school I invited a few of my friends over for a hot chocolate and sweets party. I made 2 different types of hot cocoa and some cute red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a cute chocolate design on top. A few of the ladies brought other desserts like cookies, brownies and other flavors of cocoa. it was a blast! tonight all of the kids are coming to my house for some fun with the sitters while we head over to Sherrie's for a yummy steak dinner. can't wait! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought... why not! So this morning we started off with some greens. Emma and Harry loved it, with no hesitation about the color. Carson was a little nervous about the green part, but ended up trying it anyway. it was way good, fairly filling and nothing but good for! "Skinny" here i come!

Dallin has the third ear infection of his (so far) short life. he has had a really bad cold and when i finally took him to the doctor he put him on a pretty strong antibiotic and sent him to the hospital to get bronchial suctioning and to check for Rsv. poor little guy, we find out tomorrow what the lab says. tonight i will pray for his sleep... we both could use it. look at his sweet face, he is so nice, even when he doesn't feel good.

Since Loralee moved out of the neighborhood it had been a big change to have to schedule hang outs instead of just walking across the street anytime we wanted to hang out. So in efforts to still get some hang out time we initiated "lunch bunch". we let the kids play and we get to visit like old times and enjoy a yummy meal. i love these girls, i am truly lucky to have such amazing best friends.

Yesterday in Carson's karate class they had a sparring day. Each kid is matched up and they try to get points by (lightly) hitting the other on the padded areas. I was very nervous, but Carson thought it was awesome. He was matched up with a kid bigger then him (maybe 7 or 8) and he still managed to get a point off of him! He is having a great time in his class and is learning quickly.

Today we went to the Dino Museum with Cammie, Logan and Trevor. The boys had lots of fun running around and playing in the sand pits. We haven't been in a while, so the kids had a renewed excitement for everything, it was a lot of fun. Thanks for the invite Cammie!
