So we've been having a ton of fun this summer. Jaxon went wakeboarding and motorcycle riding for the first time, fun water slides, lots of time in Gunlock, which as you can see from the pics has a TON of amazing fruit.
Thanks Gracie for bringing the water slide! He's a natural!
THE coolest cat! He's getting so big! Just like her daddy! Loves to watch movies! Where it all began! Lake Mead. Watching Little Einsteins.. This is the best time of year at Gunlock. About 120 tomato plants. Fresh salsa and everyone is invited. Loving the HOT weather. Thousands of black berries..... Nectarines.... Pomegranates.... Pistachios.....
Apricots.... Apples.... Plums....
Grapes....... And peaches, pears, figs, cherries, peppers, sunflowers, onions, strawberries, walnuts, a green house, a chicken coup (with chickens that lay eggs), and..........if anyone wants to meet us there for some good food just let us know. We've been making tons of fruit leather that is so good!
Over the 4th mine and Matt's family met up at Gunlock to bless our sweet little Olivia. It was such a beautiful day and experience. I love baby blessings! They are so precious and this is the one blessing where you child receives her (in this case) name. I am so grateful I have a wonderful husband who is able to do this for my children. I feel that there is so much that a mother does for her children every day, but it is only the father that is able to lay his hands upon your children s head and speak the words of God. Thank you babe for living your life in such a way to be able to give this gift to our sweet babies and thank you family for being there to support us and share this special day with us!
I think I really forgot just HOW much I LOVE the lake, especially Lake Mead...and that just show's you how LONG it has been since I've actually been out on it! Awesome weather, warm water, great friends... is pretty much the perfect combination for....oh anything.
This past week we've been able to go out a couple of times, once with some good friends and the other with time with family. It has been so fun with Jaxon, mainly because he isn't scared of the water anymore...HOORAY! He even got out on the wakeboard with Matt and LOVED it...he's a natural. He just stood in the middle of the board with both his arms wrapped around Matt's legs laughing the whole time...I am pretty sure that his favorite part was when they went out of the wake...soo funny! I wish I had a picture but I forgot my camera..! So lame, I know! ...if only I could do this 4 times a week!
So...I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she said that I have started to slack on my blogging (not gonna lie...I am HORRIBLE at it) She said to put some pictures of the the kids, but we have none! so sad right? So I told her I was just going to put a picture of Me because I know you all would just LOVE that...especially her though..haha, but I don't have one of those either! So I am sorry that this is a pictureless post...hopefully next time we will have gotten our camera out!
So here are a few things that have been going on in our crazy, unconventional, life for the moment:
-Grandma fell and broke her hip- OUCH! (but she is doing really well and her kiddos are taking good care of her giving her massages and aromatherapy)...I should break my hip huh? -Olivia is sleeping through the night! WAHOO!! go baby girl!! -Olivia is one cranky little girl when she is tired and hungry...uh oh! She must have gotten that from Matt ha.. -Jaxon is learning to use the potty and gets extremely excited when he is successful at it! -Jaxon is very polite about everything and says "thank you mom" when I vacuum the floor....so funny! -Matt is finishing up his job at the Hard Rock- Go baby! -I am loving the YMCA and it is where I can get my little piece of mind each day -I am trying to get into yoga because it focuses on your core and breathing, which right now...is something that I am needing in my life....just breath Jamie...just breath...but seriously I am loving it! -We are in the process of raising 24 chickens-thanks to my cousin Rick -I have been wanting Sonic Cream slushes about every night and have the fight that on a daily basis..so yummy!
Your 2 1/2 year old hops in bed for the night and looks down and says "it's clean" as he's wiping his hand over the sheets... and then immediately looks at the wall and realizes that all the crayon has mysteriously disappeared from the wall above his bed..with the same surprised reaction of...."it's clean"!!
It somehow makes all of the loads of laundry done, and several instances of scrubbing bedroom walls up to this point all worth it....well..almost :)
p.s. if you don't have a Clean Eraser in your house I have found that plain ol' white toothpaste gets crayon off of walls...it's amazing! AND please don't think that I don't wash Jaxon's sheets because I do it EVERY week...he is just one dirty drooly boy! :)
Well, last night I was talking to Matt and was saying that I wanted to delete this blog. Mainly because I don't EVER update it, but also because I don't think that there is much to blog about, BUT my sweet husband was my blogging cheerleader and now I have a new sense of blogging about whatever it is that comes to mind! Now let's just hope the umph stays put and I stick with it! Well, April was a busy month! I finally had our sweet baby Olivia! She came on April 12 and weighed 8lb's 3 oz. and she is a cutie! These were the clothes Jaxon chose to mow the lawn/dirt a couple days ago! Gotta love the Mickey Mouse undies!
Well, I am not sure if anyone really reads this anymore since I NEVER seem to update it with anything too exciting....but here it goes! Just a few pictures of what's been going on in our life.
This one is his latest new look...pink bike, head phone things..or goggles depending on the availability...classic. Jelly Belly Factory! Thanks again Uncle Scott! totally lived up to my expectations! :) The incident of the purple glitter glue during naptime....always fun. The Santa train out in Boulder...he LOVED it!
My name is Jamie & I married the most fabulous man alive! We have 2 rockin' awesome kiddos that I absolutely love and adore & get to hang-out with all day long! .... this is a somewhat, hardly ever updated look at our life so, welcome welcome!
