Summer is Almost Here!

We have been loving the warmer weather! We have taken advantage of it by going fishing and letting Tate throw stones and stomp in the creek near our house. We love you summer!!

Family Photos

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Between Tate, work, my eBay stuff, softball and everything else things have been busy. But, our life has continued and I am attempting to document that.

These are photos that I took of my family (mom, sister, her husband JD, Nathan and Tate) on Mother's Day and never got around to posting them. So, here just a few!

My New Thing: Tater Tot Designs

Anyone who knows me, knows I always have something going on. My latest venture is making Wall Plaques and selling them on Ebay. It started out as something that I thought could be interesting, but it is going pretty well so far. I created a blog to showcase my designs, and thought I would post it for my friends and family to see. Someday, I will find something that I can do at home that will actually make my family money (instead of costing them). :) I hope you like it!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. I sure had a special day with my boys and my family. Nathan surprised me with breakfast in bed and I had a great day. Nathan taught Tate to say (well, repeat) "Happy Mother's Day" and it melts my heart. He is getting so big and I am just so grateful to be his mom. I feel so blessed!! I am also so grateful for my mom, for Nathan's mom and my grandmothers all the women in my life! I love moms!

19 Months Old! (And Insane)

Tate is one busy boy. He divides his time equally between being a wild child, providing us with entertainment and being a rascal who gets into EVERYTHING. Nathan and I fall into bed every night exhausted! Tate is talking like crazy and amazes us with new words several times a day. Some of my favorites are "tickle, tickle" (see video), "good boy", and "come on, mom." Just this morning, he pulled me into the kitchen, had me pick him up, he pointed to the toaster and said, "cook." He is already ordering me around!! :) Tate is still obsessed with balls, which is a healthy interest for a little boy. An unhealthy interest is his obsession with my shoes. He loves to put on my shoes (not Nathan's) and walk around the house. A few weeks ago, we were at the mall and he saw some high heels and he grabbed them and took off. We are hoping he will grow out of this soon. :) Either way, we adore this little boy and love wathcing him learn new things! Here are the latest photos and videos:

Family Fun

We have had a blast with Nathan's family the past week. We went to Park City for some shopping (and swine flu- jk), celebrated Shelley's birthday, and went to our gorgeous little niece's baptism. It was a great time!! Here are some photos:
