Happy Birthday....

It's hard for me to believe! He's the big 0-1! :)

We bought some cupcakes today, so that he can have some yummy yummy cupcake, and then Julian finally picked out a present for Gabriel! This morning he woke up and said, "Mommy I want to get Gabriel a firetruck." So we went to Target, and he picked out a firetruck ride on toy, and the best part, it was only $20!!

I really really want to get a puppy. Espcially for Gabriel and Julian's birthday. I think Barry put the squash on it. But look at these babies.

Julian this morning, when Gabriel woke up, ran upstairs and said, "Happy Birthday Gabey Guy." Then proceeded to sing Happy Birthday to him. It was so cute and sweet.

Cute & Clever

One of my favorite shirts is from this store

Outfit My Baby

Seriously, I get so many compliments on it!
From February2009

They're affordable and CUTE!

Thought I would share... we've lived in Iowa for almost 7 months! (HOLY COW! That's gone by extremely fast!!) And within the last month, Barry, the boys and I have found an amazing discovery.

Seriously. WOW! It's delicious, and I'm seriously addicted! This weekend we signed up for the Culver's E-club! GREAT idea! We got a coupon for Buy one value meal, get one FREE! Also because Gabriel's birthday is tomorrow (CRY!!!) we got another coupon for a free scoop of custard, which, to be perfectly honest, is the best 'ice cream' I have ever had! Not to mention the 'Scooper Meal' which is HUGE, and fed both kids, AND came with a free scoop of delicious frozen custard! Barry and I have joked, I guess we'll base our residency choices on where there's a Culver's. Yep, it's that good!

Today was an adventure!

Today we went shopping for Gabriel's birthday party supplies. Yes, I said Gabriel. Not Julian. It seems inconceivable that Gabriel should be having a birthday. Wasn't I *just* pregnant?! Didn't I *just* find out that I was pregnant?! Yeah it seems that way, but it's obvious when you look at my little MAN, no longer a baby, he's a full fledged toddler now, that it's been far longer than I thought!

I am having trouble figuring out what to get Mr. Gabe for his birthday. Seriously, what do you get for a baby, no boy, that has everything? I knit him some longies, and I am praying they fit! (They totally should, but it would be JUST my luck!) I want Julian to get him something also, but Julian doesn't really comprehend 'giving' which is the reason I want him to pick something out just for his brother!

Here is my littlest beefcake

Hi/Lo Thursday

This post is part of "Hi/Lo Thursday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check out their blog to read everyone else's "Hi/Lo" posts and for a chance to win $100.

I saw this and though it would be a good tradition.

The weather, being able to go outside and play, and not be stuck in the house. Enjoy Heavenly Father's creations! My boys, and their generosity, and curiosity. And for patience when I think I'm at my end, there's always just a little bit more.

Sleep, or lack there of. I'm not the type of person that does well with little to no sleep, and both boys have Tag-Teamed me in the sleep department. If it wasn't Julian, it was Gabriel. That definitely leaves something to be desired.

So I have a new favorite fruit. It's called Ugli! Today, while at the grocery store, this adorable old lady was demo-ing said fruit. It's delicious! It's tart and tangy and sweet all at the same time. And best of all, it's UGLI! :) According to the sweet old lady at HyVee it's a mix between a grapefruit and a tangerine! DELISH!

about Grey's...I thought they were moving away from the whole lesbian thing?! And then Arizona kissed Callie?! I feel bad for Erica, I loved her badass character!

I love Natalie!

So yesterday at about 11, I got a text from my friend Natalie. She said, "Hey I have a present for you, can I drop it off later?"

I was puzzled and excited to say the least.

So at about 3, I think, I heard a knock on my door. It was Natalie, with this:

Yay! She likes me and listens to me better than my husband! :) Thanks Natalie! You're the best!

Stocking Tomorrow!


Just in case you're in search of a cute girlie valentine's day hat :)

February is passing me by!

In some ways, I LOVE that February is a short month! In others, it's the pits! Here we are, February 3rd. That means there are only 24 days until Gabriel's birthday, and 25 days until his party! (PS There's going to be a party at the Maple Grove Clubhouse, if I ever get around to calling!) I'm sitting here watching Ellen, and knitting Gabriel's birthday longies. I sort of wonder if I stopped knitting if he would somehow stop growing? I highly doubt it, but it's a tempting thought. If I stopped knitting though, I know that I would be so mad when his birthday comes, with or without me knitting his pants, and I didn't have anything for him to wear.

The boys have been interesting the past few weeks. Sometimes they both skip naps. Sometimes they both nap. It's very rare that one naps while the other doesn't, it's usually a two for one type of deal.

Well I had hopes of a long blog post, but I hear my little cranky boy crying upstairs :)

February already?!

Is it really the month of Gabriel's birth? Yep, I just checked the online calendar, and it is in fact February First. It's too bad Barry didn't get me the Grey's Anatomy calendar I wanted from the mall! It was on sale for $4! Cheapo :)

Here is a picture of my little man!
