Pictures of Little E

I am trying to go through alot of pictures that we've taken that last couple of months. I thought I should at least post a few updated pictures of our new little man. He is now 2 1/2 months old.

Pregnancy Update…

I’m not really sure how far along I am, because my due date keeps changing. Here is what I mean…

June 2 – by my calculations
June 10 – by the ultrasound we had yesterday at the hospital
June 16 – by the 20 week ultrasound done at the hospital
June 18 – by my doctor at my first appointment using her ultrasound machine

I’ve been having contractions, but I am not really in labor. Maybe it is either false labor or Braxton Hicks. Either way, my doctor wanted an ultrasound to double check that the baby is okay. The baby passed its Baby Profile Test with flying colors. (And the baby is still a boy!)

Now that we are getting closer to having this little one join our family, my only hope and prayer is that he comes healthy and after Morgan’s birthday tomorrow.

Bountiful Baskets

I wasn't going to take another picture of Bountiful Baskets, but this week was a really good one.

I was able to get...

  • romaine lettuce
  • 5 green bell peppers
  • 11 oranges
  • a bunch of spinach
  • 1 watermelon
  • green cauliflower?
  • 4 Roma tomatoes
  • 7 mangoes
  • 7 bananas
  • a bag of Braeburn apples
  • 6 ears of corn

All for $16.50!

For my friends and family in Washington, I've noticed they have some sites in Spokane. You need to sign up on Tuesday and then you can go get your basket on Saturday. I would recommend a cooler for the yummy fruits and veggies.

Woke up this morning to find this...

It is really hard to get the motivation to get ready for the baby when it is snowing in May. I have 6 weeks to go before I have a summer baby! I am really itching to setup the crib and wash baby clothes, but the snow is throwing me off. I think this year, we are going to skip spring altogether. Hopefully we will get our garden planted before the baby comes.

Pinewood Derby

Kevan had his very first Pinewood Derby. This car was his design. He decided the shape, color, and decals.

This was one of 8 races. He won of course.

After all the races, they put on a loop on the track. Kevan's couldn't get his car to make it all the way around. (My dad would cringe if any of his sons' cars did this)
Yes, the youngest and newest cub scout won 1st Place!

This is the computer final results. Kevan and his good friend and neighbor, Caleb, had quite the battle for 1st place. All the cubs did great!

Preschool Science Project

Wyatt's preschool is taking turns showing off a science experiment. He wanted to make a "baking soda volcano". So with a little bit of water, vinegar, and baking soda in root beer bottle, you have a "baking soda volcano".

My opinion is that if you can make an exploding mess, the kids will love it.

Easter 2010

It's not Easter without coloring eggs.

The Easter Bunny visits our home on Saturday. We did most of the festivities inside due to the snow. Even though it is "spring". I can handle this kind of snow, because it is usually gone by the afternoon.

Kevan likes his Easter Treats.

So does Wyatt.

Morgan really likes her ballerina tutu!

Spring Break 2010

For Spring Break, we decided to do a day trip to SLC instead of a week long trip. First we headed to the Dinosaur Museum in Ogden.

Morgan and her "pink" dinosaur.

A dinosaur Wyatt was able to touch!




Next, we hit the Aerospace Museum at Hill Air force Base. We've been here before, but it's been a while. The way the kids acted, you would have thought it was the very first time. Very cute.

Wyatt next a to a plane with the Jolley Roger! My little pirate!

What a big tire.

What a cute bunch!

Chuck E. Cheese! The kids have been wanting to go to one for quite some time. Unfortunately, the closest ones are in Boise or SLC. If you've been to one, you've been to them all. The food still isn't that great, but the kids didn't care.Kevan and Morgan playing a shooting game.

I'm really not sure what Wyatt is doing, but he is sure having a great time.

Happy Birthday Kevan!

Happy 8th Birthday to my little man, Kevan. This day and weekend is full of Birthday Celebration. Today includes a quick party at school with some fun treats. Then after school we are all off to a pizza place called Leo's. They have arcade games and a huge room of play structure things to climb on and slide down and jump on. Tomorrow, Grandma and Grandpa are coming into town. Saturday is baptism day complete with a lunch with friends and family. Sunday is when he gets recognized by the bishop as the newest member of the ward.
Happy Birthday, Kevan! Let the Celebration Begin!
This picture was taken a few weeks ago for "Crazy Hair Day" at school.

My Little Scout

Shawn caught these pictures of Wyatt. He had his backpack full of plastic food and was rolling up his blanket like a sleeping bag and stuffed it between him and his backpack.
And then he went "camping" in the forest.
This kid cracks me up!

Bountiful Baskets

Just got another bountiful basket. I had a little trouble getting it all in the picture. Here is what I got...
  • lettuce
  • 10 bananas
  • 5 Asian brown pears
  • grape tomatoes
  • a butternut squash
  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 5 navel oranges
  • celery
  • 8 cameo apples
  • 4 pummelos
  • 8 sweet potatoes
  • 2 bags of baby carrots

All this for $16.50. It is about $50 worth of produce. I love that we are eating more fruits and vegetables at a great price.

I can't get the link to work, but check out to see if you have a site near you.

Morning Surpise

Earlier this week it snowed over night. In the morning when I opened the window to see if the bus was at the bus stop yet, I found this note outside the window.
I have a very sweet husband who thinks of me just before heading to work at 4:45 in the morning! I love this guy!

It's been a while, so I thought I would update you all and let you know what we've been up to.

Here is a recent picture of the kids.

Morgan came down with croup right before Christmas and just hasn't been well ever since. Croup was coming back every other weekend. The cough and running nose never went away and the fever was off and on every 5-6 days. So when she complained that her ear was hurting her two weeks ago, I jumped at the chance to take her and get some antibiotics to kick whatever this was out to the curb. So, we get to the doctor's and of course no ear infection. But she had positive signs of pneumonia. 10 days cough, no running nose, no fever, and no croup. Yay!!
Here is Morgan being so good at taking her pink medicine. She said that it tasted like strawberries. (I had the medicine flavored with grape, but we all went along with the strawberry story.)
Kevan participated in the South Eastern Idaho Regional Chess Tournament, which happened to be held at his school. He took 6th in the 2nd Grade Novice Division.
Kevan with his trophy!

Other stuff...
-Wyatt is learning sight words in his preschool. It is so rewarding to see it click in their heads that letters all of a sudden create words!
-It's a boy! Due about June 18th. (doctor says 18th, ultrasounds says 16th, and I say 11th)
-Still couponing and loving it. Shawn doesn't care for the 5 Sunday papers we get each week. Especially when I am slow taking them to be recycled.
-Getting ready for Kevan's 8th birthday. Baptism is March 6th. And then there is cub scouts to get ready for too. This just might be the most expensive birthday yet!
-Loving our Dish DVR.
-I've been sick with a cold the last 6 days. Thank you Morgan and Wyatt!

This is our update. I'm sure there will be a lot more to come.
