...more from Dallin

Dallin was helping me do the dishes and said, "Mama, say 'Dallin, you're such a good helper!'" So I said, "Dallin, you are such a good helper, thank you!" Dallin: "Good job mama."

I gave D some raisins for a snack and then left the room. From the kitchen I hear: "Hey you raisins, come to Papa!"

Once again, from the other room I hear Dallin tell me there's a little bug in the sink. Five seconds later, I hear: "Don't be shy...come on...come on...{whack! whack! whack!}"

joy ride

Let me just say, two kids is definitely better than one. I love that my kids can entertain each other now. They are already such good buddies and I love watching them play together. My only questions is: Is three better than two?

Van Clan

We're back from our Van Wagenen family reunion up near Shasta Lake. We had sooo much fun that we are going back next year!

The pool and the game room were a huge hit, and it got up to 100 degrees so it was nice to go swimming every day.

Playing hard...

If you haven't visited the Sweet Life in the Valley blog, you need to (check out the link to the right). It is one of my favorites, and best of all, they give away free stuff every Friday. This week's giveaway: a Cupcake Courier that holds 36 cupcakes and can convert to a cakeholder. I love it.

26 years young

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband!

This morning me and the kids snuck downstairs and made french toast for Jason and then brought it to him in bed. We also gave him our present (a gift card to Nike for a nice pair of shoes) and sang happy birthday to him. After church, I cut him a big slice of his birthday cheesecake and tonight he will get a special dinner.

Relaxing on his birthday

Jason loves cheesecake, and it has become a tradition that I make him one every year on his birthday.

This year's request: Creamy Cherry Cheesecake
