I have been wanting to get pictures of the kids together, of course more posed and dressed in cute clothes but I got these the other day of them with their sippy cups.

Yes we also celebrated Mothers Day. It was wonderful. Jesús took me to Walmart to let me pick out a dust buster. Im in love with it. Especially because I have a two year old and now a 8 month old that likes to crumble her crackers before she eats them.
Jesús also got me this beautiful family Willow Tree wall decoration. I had the 3 others in the back and now we are complete. He got it for me in Morrow Bay on his business trip. He is so thoughtful.
No I did not get a Kitchen aid for Mothers Day, but I did get a Kitchen Aid. My Aunt is trying to sell her mobile home in Lake Isabella and she is getting rid of a lot of stuff. On her list was this Kitchen Aid mixer that belonged to my Grandma Freida. I am so happy that I got it and that it will remind me of Grandma everytime I use it. We also got a charcoal bbq so Jesús can bbq for us all summer and a dresser for the kids. Its actually the dresser that Sara and I used as kids, I think Ben and Cory used it too. Ahhh the memories.
We had a great day and I want to say that I have the best Mom in the world!! She is always willing to help us when we need a babysitter and knows exactly when I need her to drop by and clean my kitchen. She feels that she hasnt done a very good job with her children but my oldest brother Ben was called to be Elders Quorum President in his ward and he and his wife Janae are getting ready to adopt a baby. My brother Cory is in the Bishopric in our ward and he and his wife have two beautiful children and have the strongest testimonies, I find myself wishing I were more like them. Then there's me, nothing great, but I was lucky enough to find my wonderful husband who makes me laugh and takes care of me and does so much to make my life easier, and because of him I have two beautiful children that make me the happiest mother in the world. Then there is my sister, she is strong and independent and an adventurist. She just graduated from BYU in Microbiology, which as I saw was a tremendous feat! I hope someday I can do at least half the stuff she has done. So see Mom, you must have done a wonderful job because you have some great kids!! Love you MOM!!!!!

Elena had a great time being carted around all day
Caleb got a little wet when his dad dumped a bottle of water on his head. Obviously.
Here we are waiting for the train

I know I want a healthier me. I am on a mission to lose weight. From today I have 46 lbs to lose and I am starting a blog that will track my progress. I will post healthy recipes that we try and actually like, and exercises that are easy to do at home in your free time. Also ideas that I find help me from slipping up. Maybe if I know people are checking in on my weight loss I will continue to progress. When I reach my goal weight I will keep the blog up to help stay at my goal weight. So come visit my healthier site.

Yes, thats right 8 months. I cant believe it. Here are some things about our little Elena.
She is scooting all over the floor and she is crazy fast!
She can wave bye bye
She loves to eat and wants to try whatever we are eating
She is not sleeping through the night but only gets up once or twice
She can find any tiny little thing on the carpet that either I or the vacuum did not catch
She loves her big brother and watches everything that he does
She loves her daddy and he can always make her laugh
She loves her mommy and snuggles more with me than with anyone and I dont hate it
Her favorite food is everything
She has not attached herself to a blanket or stuffed animal even though I have tried really hard to get her to
She will not take pacifiers even though I bought every kind there is
She does not like bottles and just chews on them
Her laugh is hilarious, I call it her courtesy laugh because it sounds fake as if she were doing out of courtesy
