dear friends.....

as you know I have two crazy kids. I value sleep.....a lot. So, sorry for the lack of bloggy-goodness. But, deal with it. No, I don't have pictures to post. I love to look at other people's blogs and read all their cute stories. I'm not a writer, never have been. But I'm indeed grateful to look at other people's blogs, and hear other stories that keep me laughing and positive. I have a great life. I love it. Sometimes my days get busy, and all the things I want to do, get replace by things I want to do......such as playing with my kids, spending time with my amazing husband, just being a good wife/mommy/person. And yes, I know both of those said things I "want" to do. But, I do want to do all of those things and more. I have my priorities set straight most days. I absolutely love to craft, but let's face it. I'm a busy girl. So, there's the truth. I can't say that I'll be better at blogging, cause that would be a lie. Or that I'll post pictures.....that will happen when I feel like it :] For now, I'm just going to say.....everyone is doing well. I am still madly in love with Meikle. I adore my two kids.....and as far as blogging goes, I'll get to it later :] I do have plans to post some fun crafty stuff coming soon.....but, I have about 50 unfinished projects that just need some finishing, expect those maybe next year. But, know that I feel blessed everyday to know that my Heavenly Father loves me. And just know that I look forward to that day that I can blog all the time, and post pictures. But, don't expect it anytime soon.....until then, peace out. :]

Mother's Day!

We had a GREAT mother's day. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and support system at home. :) Here are a few pictures from the day. We spent it at my parents house with most of the family, minus my brother(who lives in Hawaii).

Meikle was soo sweet to me on Mother's day. He let me sleep in, got the kids ready for church, made dinner, and was overall amazing!!! <3 thanks love!
All I wanted was one picture with both the kids, but Kaden was sooo sleepy/grumpy. He's been having crazy mood swings lately.....starting into the terrible 3's....
My beautiful sister and handsome brother.
My sisters little girl was singing "you are my sunshine" for me!
so frickin cute!
Sydney and I
The kids absorbed in a movie after a long day of playing.
My amazing mom and sister. Love you guys! :)

Hope everyone had a wonderful and happy mother's day!!!

our egg-citing Easter

For Easter this year, we spent the day over at my parents house. We went to church in my home ward, and got to see some old friends. Then we headed back to have an egg hunt, play games, watch movies, and eat a ton.....

My boys are so darn cute! I'm one lucky lady!

The best of the "family pictures".....obviously the kids liked the eggs.

Kaden's blue steel :]

How precious is she?!

We had such an amazing time hanging out together as a family. We LOVE being together, and spent a lot of time doing just that. Not anything over the top, just chillaxin.

Easter is always a good reminder of our Savior, and along with this weekend being Easter, I went to Women's Conference for our Stake. We had a wonderful presentation of some music from Kenneth Cope, in his album, Women at the Well. It was a great way to start off the holiday weekend by having that extra reminder of our Savior. I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am constantly reminded of the tender mercies of the Lord in our life, and continually feel humbled. Throughout this weekend, the common hymn was "I Know That My Redeemer Lives". I LOVE that song, and am so touched every time singing the sweet message that I know my Redeemer lives and the comfort that makes me feel. I love the Easter season, and the beautiful weather of everything blooming, and at the peak of life. A constant reminder of God's love for us, and all that He has sacrificed for us to live in this beautiful place. Life is such a blessing and I love every minute of it! :]

I hope everyone else had a beautiful Easter day filled with love, family, and it wouldn't be complete without a little candy ;-)

Spring Time Fun

I was in charge of the kids so I thought they would like to play in water. They got cold with their clothes on so I solved the problem.

a few of my favorite things....about sydney

Here's just a few of the many reasons we love Sydney....
And I promise, we do love Kaden just as much, Sydney just is in an experimental phase that we constantly are taking her picture.

Sydney tries to take off her clothes if she doesn't like them....she tried, and this is what happened :)

Sydney "helping" to clean my car....

She eats bubbles.

she loves to swing/be outside.

when the dishwasher is open, she's in it :)

these two crack us up daily.
they pretty dang cute, huh?! :)

I'm a kid now?!?

Mr. Kaden Meikle turned 3 on February 1st! We celebrated with a Toy Story party and had such great time with family and friends.

We played Pin the Sheriff's badge on Woody
(I like how Sydney is wearing one of the shirts Kaden got for his party)

blowing out the candles!

the cupcakes and "goody" bags.
(we made magnets for all the kids with some toy story candies)

One of Kaden's favorite toys. A shake and go Buzz car!

one of his other favorite dough.
thanks for that.
Just kidding! :-P

He had a blast and was so excited that he could share his birthday with his good friends!
Thanks for everything! He LOVED it!

Our favorite things about Kaden:
*he LOVES to talk.....sometimes it's a little annoying, but still fun
*he has the cutest little rhaspy voice still
*he plays so well with Sydney and is the best little helper ever!
