today i love

being at home with my little ones.
fresh baked bread and homeade raspberry jam.
being smothered with kisses by a 16 month old.
reading and listening to stories by an almost 5 year old.
watching jillian try to be one of the big girls, slow down baby.
looking at the green, green hills and clear blue sky after all of the rain.
listening to the chatter of allie and lily as they play on the computer.
having a healthy, strong body that allows me to care for my family.
all my many, many blessings.
jillian's second tooth finally came in. not the typical bottom tooth.
she sprouted a top tooth instead.

well we're movin' on up

to the eastside. we've finally got our piece of the pie. well, not really, we've just run out of room.
eight years ago we happened upon an open house and found this little gem. eight years ago we had one two year old. this house seemed like a mansion. now eight years, three kids and a dog later, we have filled it to capacity. we aren't in a huge hurry to leave, but if you know anyone that is looking to buy in a fabulous area, great schools and great ward, let us know. (remember, with the new stimulus plan you could somehow figure out how to get the house for free!!!)

Brooke tagged me. Because it is easy and doesn't require much thinking I will do it.

Here are the rules:

1. go to your my document/my pictures

2. go to your sixth file

3. go to your sixth picture

4. blog about it

5. tag six people

This picture took place just last week. We were making frosting to decorate sugar cookies with Lily and Jane. Allie loves to help me cook and is always asking for a beater. Jillian knows a good thing when she sees it, so now she is up on the counter waiting her turn for the beater, spoon, or bowl. Kids catch on quick! (btw, the cookies turned out great and our valentine's craft was even better.)

I tag Megan, Kimmie, Jennie, Erin, Violet and Stephanie.

this one's for you, grandma koral
