picture lovin jas

one of the reasons why i admire jasmine so much, is because she is the total opposite of how i was as a teenager and i wish i would have been more like her. she’s confident, outgoing, not the least bit shy, and loves to have her picture taken. i was never a big fan of having my picture taken, but it’s very refreshing to here jasmine say…”hey mom, take my picture!” if we’re out somewhere or just chillin at home. i love it.
here she is with a few of us on a sunday afternoon…

hidden talents

so apparently i’ve got this super talented sister that i never knew about until recently (well i knew about HER, just not her talents).
she’s way good at fixing things up and making them look amazing, and she just started a blog to showcase all her work. check her stuff out here and grab a button for your blog!

(if you live in utah, she does customized orders!)

native van

van has really been enjoying scouts. he loves going to pack meetings and hanging out with the boys. the last few months they have been learning about the indians & pilgrims and making all this cool stuff to show off at their “thanksgiving feast” he worked hard making his drum and decorating his indian shirt, and even enlisted the help of dad to do some artwork on his tepee while he painted.

 alone time

we don’t get a lot of time to have jake to ourselves without all the craziness around here, so when the rest of the kids are in bed- we hang out on the couch and love on that little guy as  long as we can

some people pay big bucks for highlighted hair like this. lucky girl. and we’re one step closer to potty training…at least she’s sitting on her little toilet instead of putting it on her head:/

not wanting for attention

everyone’s waiting to get their hands on jake all the time. he is such a sweet boy. he seriously never cries. only when he’s hungry, and sometimes not even then! he’s so patient, and calm, and just hangs out and smiles at us all day. THE most perfect baby.
