Why didn't I think of that?

There is a lovely new donut shop in town.
I saw the sign a few weeks ago and have been trying not to look ever since but the temptation got the better of me.

We decided to take the kids on a little treat outing for family night last week and we one of almost everything.
The concept is basically that they use all glaze donuts while the frosting is all different and very unique flavors such as German Chocolate, peppermint strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Apple Pie, etc. They were so pretty I had to take a picture.

PS- I will not be returning anytime soon.

March 31st: Addendum: By request I will explain why= I think I ate enough calories for 2 weeks. Any more questions?

Utah- This is the Place

Last week Braiden's 4th Grade class had their "Utah...This is the Place" program. Braiden had dancing and speaking parts. He did very well and the program was great. I even began to feel a little Utahn pride...except that would not be possible because I am NOT a Utahn. (Even though I have lived here for 14 years). This video is a little like "Where's Waldo" since every kid seems to look the same. If you can follow Braiden the whole time you get a prize. Also you will have to forgive the amatuer video quality. I did not use a tripod so this is very earthquake-like. If you are prone to motion sickness, do not watch.

6 years ago today...






Today is my anniversary. Six years ago today I married my best friend and the man that I want to grow old with. Since then he has given me 2 beautiful children and become a father to my first child. He loves me no matter what I look like or what I do. I love him more than words can describe.

I love this song by Shania Twain. Every time I hear it I think about my relationship with Eric.


When You Kiss Me
( Shania Twain Lyrics for the song When You Kiss Me ...)
This could be it,
I think I'm in love
It's love this time
It just seems to fit,
I think I'm in love
This love is mine


I can see you with me when I'm older
All my lonely nights are finally over
You took the weight of the world off myshoulders
(the world just goes away)

Chorus:
Oh, when you kiss me
I know you miss me
and when you're with me
The world just goes away

The way you hold me
The way you show me
that you adore me oh,
when you kiss me
Oh, yeah


You are the one,
I think I'm in love
Life has begun


I can see the two of us together
I know I'm gonna be with you forever
Love couldn't be any better

Oh, when you kiss me
I know you miss me
and when you're with me
The world just goes away
The way you hold me
The way you show me
that you adore me oh,
when you kiss me


I can see you with me when
I'm older
All my lonely nights are finally over
You took the weight of the world off myshoulders
(the world just goes away)

Oh, when you kiss me
I know you miss me
and when you're with me
The world just goes away
The way you hold me
The way you show me
that you adore me oh,
when you kiss me


And when you kiss me
I know you miss me
Oh, the world just goes away
When you kiss me...


Happy Anniversary Eric.

My little Big Guy!



Cameron is just a few days shy of 18 months (yeah) and is turning into a little boy and losing his "baby-ness" more and more every day. He now weighs 31 pounds and looks like the average 2 year old. He is such a sweetheart and loves to give loves and cuddle. I can happily brag that all my babies have been very cuddly and Cameron is no exception. However he is definitely learning how to push my buttons and can throw a tantrum like no other.
He is beginning to say more words and attempting the art of communication. I needed to record some of the things he is saying before it leaves my slippery mind:


"Bye-bye"

"Hi-EE"= Hi Eddie (He says it while petting our dog Eddie so I can only assume that's what he is saying)

"Down"=he says that when we wants up or down

"Done"=when he is done eating

"Num-num"= he wants food

"bepee"= sippy

"Baba"=bottle

Dada


So he is saying quite a bit but I still cant get him to say mama. I will keep working on him.
