Bye-Bye New-New

Some New Things....

Jeff is always telling me that I need a hobby (sound familiar to any other moms?). So I went to Ikea and bought fabric that I LOVE, and spent all day yesterday sewing. I made a crib skirt and quilt for Zachie's room. I had fun and I am so proud of myself! Brady's bed skirt is next!

Oh, we also bought a car.
This pattern is hippos. So cute!
This is a 2 foot tall 'Z'. (made of cardboard I think) I bought it at Joann's then let Brady paint it. It's hanging on Zach's wall.

Baby Blessing

We blessed Zach yesterday. Jeff gave a wonderful blessing, of which I heard about half (Brady wanted to run up on the stage too).

After church we had our great new neighbor friends over as well as the Cusick family. We BBQed and let the kids run wild, it was great! Check out my boys!

Call me crazy-posting-blog-lady today....enjoy! My entire family was together over Memorial Weekend, for what will be the last time for the next 2 years (New leaves to London in 20 short days). We had a great time, doing what we Cusicks' do, sit around and talk, or eat, or go to the park. Ask Tj about it, he can't believe we all like to do nothing! We did go to the temple which was great not only because we are able to go as a whole adult family, but also because we left the kids and had a relaxing 4 hour break!
We love you Newel and are so excited for this adventure in your life! Lets all make bets on how many grandkids are in the family by the time you get back, one more, or two or three?
relax Dramma, just a fun little joke!

Swim Class

Bean takes a swim class every week and he loves he just started following Colin around in the water like it was nothing. (ok, he sank a few times, but I was in the water watching) They want to move him up which is great, i don't have to get in if he does.

This pic is just of Beaner talking to Dramma on the phone about his new big boy bed. Which he

loVes, and tells me to get out and, "doe sweep in 'er own bed mom!"
p.s. see how he holds the phone over the bed? He thinks you can see through the phone and look at what he is showing you! Its Hilarious! He says, "SEE?" hahahaa

Thumb Sucker! Yeah!

So, Zachie is really great at falling asleep on his own....and he does it out of boredom too! Yesterday while he was bored he finally found his thumb and kept it in....nothing sweeter! Lets just hope he gets over it a little sooner in life than his mommy (first grade anyone?) ha!

Newel; numbers 1, 2 & 3

Here are my 3 Newels. They also happen to be 3 of my most favorite men... What great examples for my baby to look up to. LoVE YoU!!!
