Ok, No I'm not talking about food right now, well ok I actually did make really yummy cinnamon rolls to devour last night (really the first time I have ever made yummy ones, ever!) but that is not what i'm talking about. i found a website with dresses i love but really can't afford but Chris is invited to cocktail parties and semi or formal events  a lot that he is expected to attend and well I don't have the funds to dress up for all these parties, last time I managed to score a deeply discounted ($10) dress from kohls. this time i'm hoping to win a yummy dress from shabby apple.  This mama rocks is giving one away. PLEASE pick me.  If anybody else has any other modest dress sights that are their faves please share them with me.

i mean who wouldn't want to show up to a party in a dress like this?!

a few reasons..

I wanted to write a few resons why i love my children so i can look at this and remember it when they are driving me batty.
I love Canyon because...
He is such a kind big brother, especially to baby brother. He always helps when asked, even if he's grumbling. He teaches me new things all the time, like who Ashoka is. And he always makes sure someone is ok after they fall down, he is just a sweetheart. And he is tender hearted too. I love that he is trying so much to understand this world we live and asks thoughtful questions. He is also an observer of things, who knows what is going on in his bright little mind. Oh and his sprinkles (freckles).
I love Sheridan because...
She is so playful, she flips, leaps, dances, skips, runs and hardly ever walks. She actually gets me to skip with her in parking lots because who could resist such cheer. She is overflowing with it. She is also sassy as can be and quick witted. I love even her meanest face because her big gorgeous eyes are glaring at you through it. I love how she wants to be a grown up ariel when she grows up and wants to get married in a castle just like the one mommy got married in (temple).  That I can't get her to slow down on the learning front. she is looking out for baby brother too. And the fact that she is rarely shy.
I love Colter because.....
He is so happy. He loves to eat, when I put him in his high chair he kicks and says mmm mmm mmm very excitedly and I just laugh every time. he is a jumping bean, he loves to kick and bounce for long periods of time. I love his chub. I mean I would love him w/o it to but would I love him this much? ;-} And his expressive little face could tell tales with those bright blue eyes. And I love that he get's really excited when mom or dad walks in the room (but especially mom). And how he sucks on his bottom lip and looks like a cute old man.

There are countless reasons why I love Chris too but I will keep those for me, and I already made him a jar of a 100+ reason why I love you.
Remember the love, It's just like counting your blessings.

Oh Canyon just read this and started telling me why he loves me too. My heart is melting.

chubalicious is crawling.

This boy is chubby, i mean cellulite thighs, belly hanging over diaper kind of chub. I just want to eat him like a marshmallow? Have I mentioned that before? I'm obsessed with his fatness. I love it!

yesterday was good

So the day after the suckage, things improved and am now feeling better. I'm probably like 90% chocolate free and I feel good about that. Yesterday was gorgeous outside so we took the kids to the shriner parade and they loved all the little cars and so did I. Then we came home and raked up 13 more bags of leaves to add to all the ones we did in the fall. we cleaned out the garden beds and there are things sprouting that we didn't plant. Can't wait to see what they are. Made the kids play outside the whole time we were out there. They thought it was ok at first and then they started begging to go inside. Winter has ruined them. I am getting so excited for spring I can barely wait. Then we fired up the grill and had burgers and it was just all great. I had one little bout of depression when it was brought to my attention that I was missing Lehi days in AZ. I love it. So we were driving by costco and I had chris stop and we just wandered around and ate all the samples. I think I started feeling better right after the chicken and mozzerella ravioli. yum. Canyon is on shcool break right now for a couple weeks, Sher really wants to go to school and talks about "her school" all the time. Colt is crawling now. And it seems since he was my latest crawler he is making up for lost time and already pulling him self up on things. I keep telling him he has 4 months (at least) before he needs to walk but he seems determined to catch up to his siblings. ugh. Oh it's a good sunday. The damn roast (thanks huntingtons) is on, and the bread is rising. I have to go play princess with Sheridan. Hope you all have a wonderful day.
