I promise we are not dead!!!!!

So I am a slacker for not posting with a new baby, but hey summer is for enjoying, not blogging every night???? that is my excuse, so i have done my best to update you over the past 2 months, there is a lot! Monday my cute Cousin got married and had quite the party to celebrate. They got married at Rice Eccles Stadium and then had a dinner and reception covering all 4 floors! It was great and the food was fantastic. His mom catered my wedding and so I felt i got to eat all the food i missed at mine, and boy did i ever!!! Can i just say shrimp cocktail, prime rib and turkey and of course the crape station!!! i waited 7 years to get that day back!!!! (For those of you who don't know, i hardly got to eat any food at my wedding and all i wanted was a crape)

Oakley on the other hand has been such a good baby! she is a good eater and sleeper and yes, she sleeps thru the night! She is so mellow and just goes with the flow. she is 2 1/2 months old, i cant believe it. each day she does something new. i forget how fast they grow, i think i was expecting her to stay "newbornish" longer. I love this age though...they are stronger with their heads and smile and make cute noises! Laker is the best big brother. He love to give her kisses and when she is napping he always tells me, "Shhh mommy, baby Oaky is sleeping" and he is soo serious!! I love it! So here is my catch up, i should be working on my etsy stuff, but that will have to wait! Enjoy!!

Swim Lessons and Rancho Relaxo 09

Laker and I have done Mom and Tot swim classes for the past 2 years, so it was fitting that we finish out his last year of swim lessons with mom at the Scera Pool. It was so fun, it was 2 weeks long and he loved every second of it. Every morning he would get dressed in MY swimming suit and come running our shout "swim pool swim pool!"...i had to edit the photos because my suit did not cover his goods .. I have to thanks my good friend Jeanine and her cute little girl Berlin for sitting with Oakley while we swam, it made things a lot easier! Laker loved to wear his undees out after swim class! We also spent this past weekend up at our friends Ranch up in Heber. It was soo much fun, we rode 4 wheelers,played on the slip'n'slide, played cards, night games and laughed soo hard it hurt. These guys were nuts! when the women and children went to bed i can only imagine what went on......lets just say they all woke up embarrassed each morning due to the early morning festivities.....We also celebrated our 7th anniversary while we were there, nothing special, but good time to be had by all!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!! and Oakley's Blessing

Oakley has been know as a party foul in our family....she was born on my brother's birthday, when we called him this is what he said, "Great, not only is there another grandkid to steal my thunder, but she had to be born on my birthday, the one day that I get to shine!" It was soo funny!! So in keeping with her thunder stealing my birthday just happen to fall on the first Sunday of the month and yes, we blessed her! but what a fun day and it will be something that I will always remember. Oh, and Steve totally came through for my B-day, he got me the most fabulous B Makowsky bag ever!!! He has great taste, or should I say the staff and Nordstrom has great taste!!! Thanks Beave!!! p.s. notice laker holding himself in the pic below. this is a common occurrence in our house, but hey ia m not changing any diapers!!!! hip hip horay!

Hanging around the house

Here are some pics of us just bummin around the house. I cant believe the difference in my two kids... blonde hair brown eyes and red hair blue eyes......Laker likes to lay by his Sissy an make her laugh, it is pretty funny. One morning i was sorting Oakley's cloths and putting away the 'newborn" stuff because, well, she no longer fits in it...sniff....sniff and i kid you not, 2 seconds later Laker was putting it on, so I thought I would help accessorize him......what a pretty little thing!!!

24th and Days of 47' Rodeo
