The Garden

I am so excited!!! Me and my Mom started preparations for our gardens! 

Last week we took a trip to get some compose/poop ha to lay in our garden beds.  We had to shovel all of it out of the trailer and bring it to the backyard.  This processes took about 3 hours!  The next couple days my back and arms were pretty sore from shoveling.  I guess I used muscles I haven't for a while.  
It was a fun day hanging out with my family.  Everyone took a turn helping shovel out the poop!  Even my little Sisters helped.  While we were shoveling, me and my little brother made up a song about shoveling poop.  haha It was pretty funny. I won't share it with you...  I can't wait until we can start planting!

Random things that happened last week.
My little Brother found my long lost ipod touch.  yay!!! Thanks brother!

Nixon started calling me Tayli... and he still calls Evan Babe.  I have too keep reminding him, I'm Mommy!.

We went out to eat with some friends and family for my BIL birthday.

We had a good rain storm!

Jovi finally loves his baths and splashes like crazy!  I pretty much get a shower when I bath him.

Went on a fun date with my sugar muffin;)to  Homedepot, cafe rio (got a free meal!) and then baskin robbins mmmmm.

Started some "spring cleaning"

Got some ideas for fun posts this week for the design blog.

Got a new calling!  We are now in charge of teaching family history.  We are so excited!  We have been wanting to learn how to do it, so now this will help us learn!

Evan figured out what he wants to be when he grows up;)....  He is going to go into Architecture!  We are both so excited about his decision.

Bath time!

My Random Post

Last night me and Hubs got to go out on a date!  My little sis, Kylie watched the boys for us while we went to dinner and a movie.  It was fun to get out and spend time together.  We split a delicious sandwich from kneaders then went to see Sherlock Holmes 2.  It was good, I liked it.  We had a fun night together:)  It was also fun to get back home and see the boys.  They were so excited to see us!  Thanks again Kye Kye for watching them for us:-)

Love them <3

Essential Oils

Ever since we were little, my Mom has used essential oils on us.  And now I use them on my kiddos.  I love using them. They smell so good.  It's funny when I smell certain oils it reminds me a different memories in my childhood.
  So Mr. Jovi has been so stuffy lately, so I started putting an oil on him call breezy and It has help clear him up.  Plus it smells so good!

Lately, I feel like this should be my theme song... Except for the part where she's wondering when will her life begin. ha

  Mandy Moore
When will My Life Begin

7 AM, the usual morning lineup:

Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15.

And so I'll read a book
Or maybe two or three
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I'll play guitar and knit
And cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb,
Sew a dress!

And I'll reread the books
If I have time to spare
I'll paint the walls some more,
I'm sure there's room somewhere.
And then I'll brush and brush,
and brush and brush my hair
Stuck in the same place I've always been.

And I'll keep wonderin' and wonderin'
And wonderin' and wonderin'
When will my life begin?

And tomorrow night,
Lights will appear
Just like they do on my birthday each year.
What is it like
Out there where they glow?
Now that I'm older,
Mother might just
Let me go ...

The Brothers

New Post on our design blog.

This is what Jovi thought of his oatmeal with bananas

Jovi will be 7 months on the 18th! He weights 19 lbs now.  Only 3 lbs less then Nixon!  He is catching up!

He can almost sit on his own. 
He is soo close to crawling.

He has 2 teeth now.


We love our little Jojo:)

Oh Nixon.
The other day I was making dinner and Nixon comes running into me laughing and saying, "belly funny!"  I turn to look at him and this is what I see!  Oh don't worry it's only PERMANENT marker no biggy:/  Oh my.  I personally didn't think it was that funny.  He then ran and hid under the chair because he knew he was in trouble!

Monday night, we made homemade pizza, it turned out so delicious!  We will definitely be making it again sometime.

My attempt to toss the pizza ha.

I want this book
