Favorite Toy

This little pop up toy is Kalen’s favorite right now!IMG_3589

Big Brother helps pop them up! And she gets so excited and giggles!


Then she pushes them back down.


And they do it over


and over again.

Little Sweeties

Before Valentine’s Day I wanted to take a few pictures of the kids so we could send them to Grandparent’s. I really wanted to get a picture of Tyler and Kalen together, but that was just not working out! In the 10 seconds that they were happy I couldn’t get them both in focus, and then one of them got upset, so I will have to try another time.

Here are a couple of Tyler.

This one was a little grainy, but I put a vintage action on it and I think it turned out a little better.


And since Kalen turned 9 months old the day after I took these I figure this could be her 9 month photo shoot!

And I got some of Hailey too, for her to give to her Mom for Valentine’s Day.

And here are my attempts at getting all three together.


Yeah, Kalen wasn’t having any of that!

So I hope you all liked the picture heavy post, I figure I was due since I have been posting mainly scrapbooking projects! :)

Valentine’s Day

IMG_3537 We had a great Valentine’s Day with the kids! Tyler was a little sick that day, but other than that we had a nice relaxing day. Here are some highlights of the kids opening their gifts.

14-Valentine's Day

I took some pictures of them a few days before to send to their Grandparent’s and I think they have received them by now so I will share them soon!

Jamie Scraps-February

The February kit is up for sale at Jamie Scraps! I love all the embellishments that are in this kit! Here is what I made this month.


I recently got some pictures printed of Kalen and I immediately knew what I wanted to do when I saw this chipboard bird!


Even with all the pinks and reds in the kit I was able to make a “boy” page. I love the touch of green, and look at that polka dot ribbon! So cute!



And a few cards:

love      celebrateyou



Have a great weekend and a Happy Valentine’s day!

This is how mine turned out.

I used the Love Sparkles kit from Stampin’ Up, but you could easily use some of your scraps! So get over to Real Life Scraps and learn to make your own. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to enter the “simple” challenge that’s going on this month!

Big Boy


Well yesterday I wrote about Kalen being a big girl, and I might jinx myself, but Tyler has been being a big boy lately. We have been putting him in a pull-up at night and for naps and for the past few days he has been waking up dry! So here he is showing off his lollipop for being a big boy and making Mommy and Daddy proud!

Big Girl

02-Big Girl

I finally found some table food that this Big Girl can eat…BANNANAS! She loves to eat little chunks of them! She is getting better with her sippy cup too. Mike gave her 3oz of formula on Friday night, which is a big improvement from where she was a few weeks ago.

Kalen has been doing “Big Girl” by herself for a couple weeks now. I just say, “Where’s my big girl?” And up go the arms with a big smile! Too Cute!
