My Little Ones

While Phil and Corinne were here Corinne took these beautiful pictures of my little ones. I love looking at them. I love to see Gavin's sweet smile, and his silly batman pose. I realize he's not a little toddler anymore, but a handsome little boy with so much energy and joy inside of him. I love to see Ruby's little baby cheeks and  bright eyes. I think of the future these two have ahead of them, and how important my role as their mother is. I think of how fast time is going by, and sometimes I wish I could just freeze it, and have them little forever. I love their innocence and purity. I love Gavin's excitement for life...seriously he is one expressive kid. I love listening to him talk and love our simple conversations about things like the sweet sticky hand he got with dad at the pizza place. He makes me smile, and I can't believe how fast he is learning and growing. 

I love when Ruby is sad and Gavin starts singing "twinkle, twinkle, little star" or "rock-a-bye baby" to comfort her. He loves, loves his sister and is so cute with her. He is great at making her laugh....especially in the car. It's the best sound in the world. 

I love watching Ruby roll and scoot around  all over the place and then get so mad because she can't crawl yet. I love her sweet smiles and cute little laugh. I love holding her at night and kissing her soft cheeks. 

I love being a mother to these two little people. They make me smile, and cry and feel so many emotions. I'm not sure I will ever be able to fully express how I feel about them. As I look at these pictures I feel so blessed and am so full of gratitude that they are mine and that I get to be with them everyday.

Thanks Corinne for capturing their sweetness and personalities.

Phil and Corinne Visit

My brother, Phil, and his wife, Corinne, came and stayed with us for a couple nights. They were headed to North Carolina where my brother will be working for the summer. We were so happy to have them, and were sad to say good-bye. Thanks for staying with us guys....we love you and miss you. Can't wait for next time!

These two were so cute. Gavin loves his Uncle Phil.

Corinne and me, and Corinne's cute little baby growing in her tummy ;)

Apparently little g-man did not want his picture taken.

Watching Rio. One of Gavin's favs.

Gavin was happy to have Phil around to wrestle. He was in desperate need of some wrestle time since Adam has been gone.

We had fun playing at the park.

And getting this little guys hair cut. This was the first time he didn't have to sit on my lap to get it cut and he didn't cry! Woo hoo! He is such a big boy.

Thanks to Corinne for all the cute photos. She just graduated in photography, and takes beautiful pictures. If you ever need a good photographer check her out here.

Grass Love

Ruby had her first experience with grass this weekend. She loved it! She was quite content just staring and feeling the grass. Love her cute little baby hands. 

Easter Eggs

We had fun dying eggs while Dad was here for the weekend. It was done pretty quickly...Gavin couldn't wait to drop all those eggs in the dye. 
Little G thinks that all eggs have baby chicks or baby dinosaurs inside them. After he pulled out an egg from the dye he would say, "ohhh, cuute!" and give each egg a big kiss. It was the funniest thing. 
A little Easter morning bed head and a sweet Easter basket.

The Best Easter

I love Easter, and celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior. I love my Savior and am never quite sure how to fully express how I feel about the atonement. It is because of the sacrifice and Resurrection of Christ that we can live again, and become better, and be with our families forever. I feel so much hope and joy knowing this, and am full of gratitude and peace this Easter Sunday.

  Adam was able to make it home for the weekend, making this Easter one of the best. We have missed him here, and it was so nice to have him here for a short moment. 

Happy Easter!
