We also spent the weekend celebrating Daddy's birthday -- AGAIN! Friday we watched The Blind Side, Saturday we had a birthday party at our house for Shaun and our friend Jenn. And Sunday was Daddy's big day. Even though it was jammed pack full of non-birthday stuff, he still had an awesome day. (Oh yeah, and we had 2 extra kids all weekend! It was great!)

She wasn't so sure about it! Maybe because Daddy let her crash!
Then we packed up, ate lunch, and headed home!

Taking his pictures are getting harder and harder. He either crawls away from me, or is always sticking his tongue out! ALWAYS!!! Just like his papa used to!

Mom and I post show!
The fan club!
(Janel Grimmett, Helen Curry, Kelly Kercheski, Laurie Nelson, Judy Olsen, Emily Grimmett, Jenn Nicoli, 2 ladies from my mom's school -- not quite sure what there names were.)
It was such a fun night! My mom was so graceful and poised. The show kind of reminded me of when my sisters did Jr. Miss. They asked her questions that she wasn't prepared for, but she still did wonderful!
Let's be honest. . . My mom is incredible!

I really am so lucky!
P.S. St. Patrick's Day is my 2nd favorite holiday (1st is Christmas, duh!) because I LOVE corned beef and cabbage! It is probably my favorite meal. I make it in the crock pot with apple juice and it is to die for! This morning for breakfast, Maisey requested green pancakes! :) I just love this holiday!

In the last 3 days:
*I was shopping at the outlets (Surprised?) and bought some stuff at Nike. Only to realize hours later in Gap that I had lost my bag! $70 worth of stuff. . . GONE!
After a quick prayer, I miraculously found the bag 5 minutes later.
*I went to the Target pharmacy to pick up my prescription and left my phone on the counter there.
*I lost my Credit card!!! Again, I prayed and hours later found it in my wallet! Don't laugh at me! It wasn't where it was supposed to be.
*I lost my keys! Shaun and I searched and searched and searched our whole house. They had to be there somewhere because I came home with them. After another prayer, I found them in Gage's car seat at 11:30 last night!
Heavenly Father has got to be sick of hearing from me! Why am I so scatter brained?
This morning I was helping Maisey go potty and she said to me, "Mommy, you have beautiful earrings." Quickly followed by "Where'd you buy them at?" I told her at the mall. Then she said to me, "Mommy, you have a funny head, where'd you buy it at?" I just laughed!
Anyone know where I can buy a new head?

After reading the book at least 15 times yesterday, Maisey begged to make pinkalicious cupcakes! I told her we could in the morning.
Usually in the morning Maisey greets me with a loud "Good Morning Mommy!" but not this morning. She said, "We make cupcakes! We make cupcakes!"
So at 7:30 am, that's what we did!

Around 10 am the next morning Shaun got the "call" that would shake things up.
I can't believe it's been a whole year since I was sick with worry, had permanently puffy eyes, and exercised extreme faith in the Lord.
It has been 1 year since Shaun left KPMG.
Looking back on things it was such a blessing that he was laid off! He wasn't happy there. He didn't look forward to going to work.
2 jobs later, we are where we're at today! As we were driving home from our ward temple night last night we were reflecting on our situation. Shaun LOVES his job! And I know that because he tells me all about it every night, and I try my best to understand it all, but most of the time I just have to nod and smile! :)
Once again, I express sincere gratitude to our Father in Heaven who constantly watches over my family and is ever aware of our needs.

She got a call yesterday saying that she was one of the 3 ladies picked! I am so happy for her. She gets a skin consultation, a hair makeover, and a new wardrobe! Wooo Hooo!!!
My mom is already so cute. . . with the help of wardrobe suggestions from me, of course!!! :) But I think this will be a great experience for her!
Her "unveiling" is Thursday the 18th! Check out this Wellspring site for the info for that night! I'm so excited to see the new her!!! I may just need to post some before and after pics!

Off to bed. . .

Remember the annoying kids you used to babysit who would always ask, "Why?" Well, we've got one of those! When I get annoyed after hearing it 50 times I try to remind myself that this little inquisitive mind is growing and exploring at rapid rates. . . so reluctantly, I try my best to answer every "Why?"
Another funny question I hear all day everyday from my brand-savvy 2-year old is "Where did you buy it at?" From her clothes in the morning, to what she is eating, to her toys, pretty much anything she comes in contact with she asks, "Where did you buy it at?" If I don't respond, she will start rattling off store names, "Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Safeway, Albertsons, the mall" until I answer her! She is quite the little shopper!
I love my little smart girl!

So this weekend we put our old couches up on craigslist and decided to shampoo our carpets before the new couch comes! So we moved our couches out to the garage and the rest of the furniture into our kitchen. At 2:00 pm on Saturday I decided we should paint! It would be so much easier to paint now than it would be once we have the new couch. We put the kids to bed EARLY and my totally awesome mom came up to help us! We got the whole room painted in just a few hours!
Yesterday we shampooed the carpets, scrubbed the base boards and took down all of the tall blinds and washed them! Our room is looking in tip-top shape --- just waiting for our couch to come! And our new bookshelf and curtains that I just ordered last night!
I am so excited for the project to be finished! I will post pictures once everything is here!!!
All I could think about for the rest of the day. . . and even now where those first several months with our big boy! Makes me cringe!
