Nap Time

Oh how we love the Johnny-Jump-Up chair. Here is Daxton two years ago, and here is Jacy 2 days ago. You wouldn't think it's very comfortable, but they both could sleep in it for about as long as they sleep in their beds. The funniest part is if you disturb them, they jump a few times, still with their eyes closed, till they nestle back down.

Snot-nosed kid...

"A picture is worth a thousand words...," well, maybe just one word in this picture's case......GROSS! Honestly, where does all the snot come from? It has been a few weeks since Dax's nose first started running, and it just doesn't quit. It just makes me wonder how much snot one little nose can contain. Throughout our day, I frequently hear Dax say in one of his quieter, more pathetic tones, "Mommy.." and then I turn to see what is pictured above. I can't beleive that one little body could produce so much snot. Gross.

Happy Birthday and visit from friends

Well, we had a great weekend celebrating Ben's birthday with our friends Lars and Nicki, who came to see us for a short, fun visit. They brought along their youngest of two daughters, Brooke, who is 6 days younger than Jacy. Daxton thought it was cool to have 2 babies around the house. He made the comment while we were in the car, "Wow! Look at all the babies!" We were glad that Lars and Nicki were here to help us celebrate and to help us eat all of the food! Ben's favorite thing in the world (next to me of course) is food! Soooo, on his birthday, we go all out! On Friday night when Lars and Nicki were here, we had hambugers with all his favorite fixin's (guacamole, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, etc.), and sweet corn. Afterwards we had the cake (made by me, of course). This year's cake was a repeat of last year's cake because it was so darn good! It has two layers of chocolate cake, and two layers of mint chip ice cream, frosted with cool whip, and garnished with vanilla and chocolate frosting. YUM! SOOO GOOD, if I do say so myself! Oh, and we serve it with fudge covered mint oreos too.....that makes it complete! On Saturday morning, we had Fresno French toast, which is a mission recipe, and it's really tasty, and I'm considering adding a link with all my recipes on it at some point in the near future, so that will be on it for sure if you're wondering what it entails. Anyway, for lunch it was BLTs, and for dinner, pizza! On Sunday, which was Ben's actual birthday, we had Ben's FAVORITE dinner........breakfast. Complete with waffles, hash browns, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, sausage patties, orange juice. Wow. Honestly, I feel a little fat just remembering all of this food. Well, anyway, sorry for the rambling. It was a great weekend! What could be better than a combination of good friends and good food?
