Boogie Man

So at least once a week, i will lay him down to go make a bottle and when i come back, this is what i find...

He falls asleep holding his blanket and sucking his thumb.. Isn't that so cute!!


You Must Watch This.

Ok, so this has nothing to do with my family at all, but i just have to share it with everyone. I saw this video on "The View" last week. It was so touching and incredible. Please watch it! :)

Sleeping Alone..

Tuesday morning Hubby left for Nevada. He won't be back until this weekend. He is working on a job there. So, it was just me taking care of the kids yesterday and last night. The day went by fast and before i knew it, it was bedtime for the kids. (Actually i was looking forward to them going to bed.. I know ,what a bad Mom i am, but hey i need some "Me Time" too.) :)

I absolutely HATE sleeping alone. I was dreading going to bed and on top of that i was worried about taking care of Boogie Man during the middle of the night. (I did a recent post on here about how Hubby does those "Night shifts" and how we only practiced one night like a couple of weeks ago.)

At Midnight i hear Boogie Man starting to cry. I fed him and he went back to sleep. ( I thought to myself, wow that was pretty easy. )

Then again at 4:00 in the morning he started crying again. Once again i fed him and he went back to sleep fast.

I thought to myself after that second time, Hubby said he only wakes up once a night, Boogie Man must know Hubby is gone and is making me work overtime. LOL.

Finally at about 7 this morning i hear him making some cooing noises. I pick my head up a little bit and look into his bassinet, he sees me and starts to smile immediately. He was chewing on his hands and his blanket. (He is such a good and happy baby!)

Hopefully tonight will be just as easy, if not better. :)

Super Guy's first time on a swing.

So on the 4th of July we took the kids to Emmett and while we were waiting for everyone to get done picking cherries, we took the kids to the local park. Super Guy finally got to go on a swing, it was his first time... He didn't want to leave, he was having so much fun. :) Of course ,me being the blogger that i am, i had to grab the camera out and take some pictures. :)

"Look at mommy and smile."

The Cake

July 5th was the "surprise" 50th birthday party for my mom.. The party was great, the food was amazing, and the cake turned out really good.. I will post some more pictures later, but i wanted to show off the idea for the cake and the actual cake... I didn't want to go with fondant because i have heard that it doesn't taste that good, so i went with butter cream frosting. :)

The idea

The actual cake, they got pretty close to what i wanted don't you think?
