do you ever feel like....

doing this?
This is Kason back in March. Pretty funny. This is not a regular thing.. every once in a while he will fall asleep and stay asleep while i clean him up, pick him up, carry him up stairs, and lay him in his crib. and then he will sleep for hours and its fantastic..
Today i feel like this.
I feel like taking a nap, well i actually feel like i should have just stayed in bed lol. im THAT tired. I cant stay awake and all i want to do is lay down and sleep. I fell asleep at 8:45 lastnight on the couch missing the end of NCIS (good thing its on the net) i then slept until 10 and watch with out a trace and then went up to bed and crashed until my alarm woke me up. i still feel like half of me is still up in bed! lol.
Lets hope for a nice nap from Kason. Usually he will sleep from 1:30 until 4-5 so thats nice.. lets hope for the 5!! :)

18 months

Hey everyone.. So Kason turned 18 months in March!!!
March 28th.
I was going to take his pictures but we were at my sister's during that week and i didn't bring my nice camera so i wanted to wait until we got home.. well the day before we were to leave my sisters Kason fell off of my sister's front step and hit his head against the cement.. poor kid.. got a NASTY bruise but other than that was totally fine. (freaked out and called the doctor and everything lol)
So i wanted to wait to take his 18 month pictures until the bruise went away and it was decent outside... well the bruise finally left on Monday and yesterday the weather was great... and what does he do? falls while playing outside and not only gets a bruise on his forehead but also skinned his nose..
am i ever going to get pictures of him WITHOUT bruises and scrapes?
So Monday is to be super nice... 18 month pictures here we come bruises or no bruises... lets hope none..

So happy late Easter everyone!!
Hope you all had a great time.
we did.
Friday night we went out to Logans mom's house and spent the night and then on Saturday we helped around the kitchen then went quading.
It was wet, drizzling, and not too nice out, but we really wanted to go out. So we layered on the clothes, put kason in the wrap we have and off we went quading with Logan's brother Rodney.
We lasted only 45 minutes i think, Kason fell asleep after 10. It was just too cold and wet. Kason was so bundled up that he was hot. Good thing.
We did see two deer though, pretty close up too.
That night we dyed eggs. Kason plopped a few in, and drew on one with a white crayon, but mostly sat there fussing because he wanted to play in the dye.Kason actually ate a few hard boiled eggs ( we made 40 but only dyed 10)
On Sunday we went to Stake confrence for the Elma stake. Kason walked the halls and screamed for 2 hours. He hated it. He has a really bad cold, and teething so he just wanted to go home. I cant blame him.
Everyone came over and we had yummy food and talked and watched Marley and Me. Super cute movie. Sad.
We then had an easter egg hunt. There were ones that were super easy just on the floor and on a shelf then there were ones a bit harder for Gabby and Colby who are 3.5 and then there were ones super hard for Alec who is 10. (notice the water on kason's pants.. he found a cup of water and thought he needed a bath)
we only got a few pictures of him hunting for the eggs.. stupid lighting and flash.. it caught him after the cute moments.. oh well. But he would find the eggs and instead of putting them in his bucket/basket he would open them up and candy would go flying! lol... he loved it thoughHere is Alec falling as he jumped up to get an egg up high.After he got his loot (a ton of eggs) he sat down and began eating his candy. Kason has had candy before but not alot.. a peice here or there even on Halloween. So he was in high heaven sitting there having no one telling him no while he ate and ate and ate jelly beans, peeps, chocolate, etc. etc. etc. Here he found a peep and ate it while putting his foot up on his bucket.
Enjoying his 2nd peep... he loved itHe has such funny faces sometimes! lolI am in love with this picture and it will be printed and framed and put by his picture of his feet from his birthday.eating a jelly beansome eggs after opening them and taking out all the candy and putting it in his bucket.eggs and a half eaten peep.. i love easter
Our nephew Connor (not on my side on logan's) (yes we have 2 connors) is 11 months and will be 1 on the 21st of this month! time flys!! He loves crawling around and eating the eggs.I couldnt help my self from taking tons of pictures. the lighting was perfect and with the color of the hardwood floors.. i was in heaven!
i love his shaggy hair.. super cuteand last but not least.. his legs.. super cute baby legs...
as you can tell overall easter was wonderful and we had a great time!
now back to my house.. it needs some serious cleaning.. will post tomorrow with pictures from my stay up at my sister's house last week

homemade birthday presents

So this year Logan and I decided to save money we would give all our nieces and nephews something homemade. we have 17 of them!! so presents can get pricey for us.
I didnt take pictures of the first three i made.. im lame i know
But for Matthew who turned 10 i made him a pillow case with sports fabric and bright orange trim
For Maegan, who turned 7, i made a crayon roll... have you seen those? they are pretty cool... google it...
For Hannah, who turned 2, i made a soft fabric quiet book from a premade kit pretty much.. it was simple and she loves it.
And today for Jehron who turned 7 on Tuesday!! i made a notebook holder/pencil holder... its for church so he can have everything together and he can draw, write, color etc.
AND i actually TOOK pictures!! check them out...It ties on the side with red ribbon.It holds 12 crayola colored pencils and two pens (or pencils) Next time i will make the pocket part for the pencils deeper... they stay in there, but i think it would look nicer with deeper pockets.
There is a pocket for the back of the notebook to slide into to keep it in place so it doesn't fall out or anything.
I came up with this out of my head and im really proud of how it turned out! i hope he likes it! :)
