Ella playing in our sandbox before it became the neighbor go-to area for all cats to poop in! Oh how I hate cats. What gross, germ infested animals. So needless to say, we no longer have sand in our sandbox. We threw it all away. Now we have to figure out what we are going to do for a lid to keep the dumb cats out before we buy a bunch of sand again.

I have put off posting for a really long time. Pretty much since I started my last pregnancy, which I guess is still this pregnancy since I haven't had the baby yet. Due date is the 20th of July. So less than two weeks away! We are very excited. It is a boy.
Ella just learned to climb out of her crib this week. I am sort of glad, so far she has still been really good about taking naps. She has always been a really good sleeper, so hopefully that will stay the same.

EllaKate's First Birthday!!!

Her sad clump of balloons. I got Jimmy a balloon too, and when we went to put them in the car his got caught and popped...again, very sad!

We had a really fun time celebrating Ella's birthday. She was lovin her cake!! I mostly video recorded it, at one point she just picked the whole top piece of the cake up and tried to bite it. Words that she says : doll, dada, baba, ssss (her favorite sound!).
She really likes to hit me in the face and then smile. She thinks that it is funny, and every time she does it, she just stares at me to see what I'll do. When I tell her, "No, no Ella." she smiles.

Yeah if you are arachnophobia stricken, this first photo should make you cringe a little. We went out to Antelope Island a few weeks ago for the Farr family reunion, and on our way back down the Kauze way, we started noticing all of these black dots everwhere, and then we were like, "No, it can't be??!", but yeah not even kidding it was!!!....THOUSANDS!!!!, and I mean thousands of ORB spiders in their webs!!! I was so creeped out, seriously gross. They had webs lining anything and everything for like two miles. I didn't even dare get out the car to take this photo!!

Superman, just enjoying a cupcake...what is that on your lip??
Cute little EllaKate, notice that her shirt says "feed me", this is true. She wants food 24-7.
Super flexible Spiderman adorning Jimmy's third birthday cake, you better believe everything was Spiderman! He is pretty intent of having most things be Spiderman related, or Buzz Lightyear.

Ella and Jimmy ready for Sunday. I loved this dress for Ella I picked up at Janie & Jack. I had never been. It was a little frilly, but had some really cute stuff.
So with summer almost over, I am still battling the "I need to work out" bug. I can't seem to get with it. Maybe it's because I bought way too much fabric, and now I am constantly thinking about how I need to sew any spare second I have?! At least the weddings are done that I had the last couple weekends. So crazy. We went on vacation with the Rawson side of the family and it was a lot of fun. We stayed in a cabin in Heber. It was really beautiful scenery everywhere! It is great to get outdoors.

One little super cute, crazy baby! Oh my, look at those two little teeth! They popped up about two weeks ago, like a day apart! She is trying so hard to crawl! She will take the position, and then just rock, and then get mad that she can't move! Tonight, she pulled herself up into sitting position after being on her belly! It was really cute! Poor little Ella has to deal with me kissing her little chubber face to pieces on a daily basis. In the top photo I was trying to get a shot of Ella's little "whale spout" on the top of her head. It's her first little pony tail!
Life has been crazy, but I guess that is because I am just a crazy person in general. Modernthread (my special little business, that doesn't really make me any money, because I spend it faster than I can make it back of fabric!! lol)...anyway, I am doing better with that, but I just can't seem to get anything done these days. I have the Bijou Market coming up on June 5th in Orem, and I am not sure that I will even get very much done for it! I have been sewing lots and lots of pillows for orders on Etsy.

Ella is now 6 mos. old, the pediatrician said that she is growing like a weed! She is 28" long and a couple ounces away from 20 lbs. We just love her to pieces! She is rollin all over the place lately.
Here is how I found jimmy a few nights ago when I was checking on him after he had gone to sleep! He is obsessed with this book that we got from the library. Although he is a little confused. He thinks this is a book about spiderman. Spiderman, Superman...I mean really what's the diff right?
This is what Jimmy left behind before he came in for dinner. I can't tell you how many times I have swept the dirt off the concrete! He is just a boy who loves dirt! Matt and I are going to try and build him a sandbox this summer. Hopefully that will keep the garden dirt from being spread around all over the place!
We had a crazy little hail storm a couple weeks ago. Jimmy thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Ella is sitting up a little now. She is very tipsy, but will stay up for a couple minutes by herself sometimes!

Some shots taken by Matt at the park with Jimmy.
I remember when he could barely climb up anything on the playground, now he just does whatever a big kid can...except the monkey bars, because he can't reach yet.

"NOT A BOX"...that is what these picture's makes me think of! It's a very cute child's book. If you haven't read it yet, you should, it is really cute.
