Fab Freebie

I found this today online. A free 8x10 alphabet print from Kind Over Matter.

Just go to http://kindovermatter.blogspot.com/2010/02/freebie-alert-kind-over-matter-abc.html and you can get one of your very own in six colors to chose from. I always see things like this I like on etsy, but can never make the $15 commitment.

Simple. Graphic. Free

Perfect for the new little girl x 2 room I have been dreaming up lately.

Tired and bored of being inside - this cold weather is killing us- I was determined today to find something new to do inside. Luckily it is not hard to be inspired via the internet/bloggers, and saw this.... http://www.themotherhuddle.com/.

Easily replicated with $4 in dry beans and a trip to the Walmart, and perfect for a morning free of boredom. If I was thinking about it I would have grabbed some alphabet letters to hide in the "sand", but we are plenty entertained with hiding animals, and using kitchen utensils as "sand" toys.

And, well, making a mess too.

Added bonus - leftovers. Seems like a dreary day, perfect for taco soup.

Guys and Dolls

Saturday we took Kaylie to the pool in Kamas for the second time in the short time we have been in Utah. It is quite a drive just to go for a swim, but the pool is full of fun things for youngsters, and is warm enough ( 85') that it makes swimming with a blizzard outside not quite insane. That and the chance to meet up with Kate and Brielle, and Kaylie is in heaven.

And just in case you were wondering.... just because she is a Utahan once agian, doesn't mean she can't still swim like a Phoenix.

My littlest valentine

One of the best things about living right downtown.....there are 101 place to take a picture. I used to always be keeping my eyes open in phoenix for a single brick building, with the purpose of wanting to use it as a photograph background. There is probally a brick building in every color within 5 minutes of our home, perfect for photgraphing my littlest valentine in front of.

Another great thing....tons of little bakerys perfect for buying my littlest valentine a heart shaped treat.

Above Kaylie is telling me (incorrectly) that she is two years old. Not that I am going to teach her differently.

Hoping everyone a happy valentines!

We are ready?

We have a few months to go with this baby number two, but today after a doctors appointment, Jeff mentioned the fact that maybe it is time to start getting stuff ready. To which I answered "Aren't we already?"

Do little girls need anything more?

We made it to salt lake city, and are now residing in our fourth home in our daughters short 21 months. For being as particular of a personality as she is she seems to be adjusting better than I expected.

Does anyone elses two year old seems to be a little OC? She has little tantrums over things not being exactly right, not having a towel with a fish on it to get out of the bathtub, setting the table with the exactness of miss martha, finding peices of lint on the carpet and picking them out to throw away.....really you would think I would have a cleaner house.

But she has taken to the changes with flying colors...I guess after four moves, moving is routine for her.
