Jake's Creation

Jake decided it would be fun to have a vegetable garden. I didn't even know you could have a vegetable garden in Arizona? Jake built this cool garden box by scratch and we planted cucumbers, watermelon, tomatoes and carrots.

After a week things are starting to grow!!

I decided to dust off my sewing machine this year and make the girls Easter dresses. I was pretty rusty but they ended up turning out pretty cute.

We learned quickly that we shouldn't give Ryland an egg to hold. Since he thinks everthing is a ball... right after we took this picture sure enough...he threw it. Luckily it was a hard boiled egg:)


I think Ryland loved his balloon more than anything else he got for his b-day! (If I would have known that it could have saved us a lot of money! :) )

Thanks G&G Nielsen...they love their b-ball hoop!

fun at Chuck E. Cheeses!

Madison just turned 3 on friday! So crazy how time flies. We took the kids to Chuck E cheeses and out to dinner which was a lot of fun to hang out as a family and celebrate Madisons b-day.

Today my baby turned ONE! I can't believe it has already been a year. We have been so blessed to have Ryland join our family. He has been a happy and joyful baby since day one and has brought many smiles and laughter to our lives. We LOVE you RYLAND! Happy birthday my sweet baby boy!
