I leave Kyanna alone for 5 seconds (o.k. maybe a little longer than 5 seconds and well... I guess I don't watch her all the time) anyways she decided to give herself a haircut. Isn't it so cute? Right in the middle. Awesome! I am not sure what to do so I am just going to leave it the way it is. I can kind of come over with her other bangs, but I can't cut the rest of her bangs that short. Seriously this child!

Fun Memorial Day!

Well we decided that we wanted to do something fun for Memorial Day, despite the fact that I am 37 weeks pregnant and really don't feel like doing anything. So we decided to go fishing this morning. We only went to the Daybreak pond but the kids don't care. Of course we didn't catch anything, but still had a good time!

Will's attention span for fishing was much longer this year which is good since last year it was all of about 30 seconds. Although the fishing pole did end up as a light saber eventually.
So maybe it is nesting, I don't really know or care. But I have managed to complete another project and I am quite proud of myself. I think this one turned out so cute and it was so easy. Again I saw this on http:/ My next project is making an apron. I think I can, I think I can. And as soon as my sturdy metal rings come in the mail I will be tackling a baby sling. Hopefully I can get it all accomplished before the baby comes!
Then tonight we went over to Brett's parents house for a BBQ, which was actually a griddle, since they don't have a BBQ. Doesn't matter though it was still fun. And the kids, as always, had a blast with their cousins. Sorry I didn't take any pictures because my dumb camera's batteries were dead. I am telling you we have spent more money on batteries because of this dumb camera. We are very close to buying a new one. Not because of the batteries but mostly we just want a nicer one! But it was a great day. Hope that everyone had a great day!!

Like Father Like Son

O.k. so remember how I never know what Brett is going to bring home from the D.I. (or what he might be wearing!) Well the other day he came home with a Bountiful High wrestling outfit. Thankfully he wasn't wearing it this time. However his son, who pretty much likes everything that his dad does, put it on and didn't take it off for most of the day. I guess there are worse things!

Cranberry Banana Oat Muffins

O.k. so I love it when people post recipes on there blog and I love trying new recipes. So I thought that when I find a good one I am going to post it! This is a good one because not only did it help me use my old bananas and my cranberries that have been in the freezer for over a year (sorry if that is gross) but Brett and the kids really like them! So here goes.

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 cups oats

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 3/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (5-6 bananas)

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 cup cranberries

1. Combine the first six ingredients in a mixing bowl.

2. Mix well

3. Beat together egg, bananas and melted butter until smooth.

4. Add to dry ingredients.

5. Stir to blend

6. Stir in cranberries until just combined.

7. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling almost to the top.

8. bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until the top spring back when lightly touched.

Sorry no pictures of the muffins they were gone before I could even think to take one. However what would a post be without a cute picture of the kids!

The kids insisted on sunglasses. And well they look just so darn cute in them I couldn't help but get them some. This is their cousin Greyden.

What to do?

O.k. so I have a dilemma. Well at least I think it's one. I went to my Dr.'s appt. last week and he asked me if I wanted to be induced a week early. This took me by complete shock. Especially since I am not one to go early ( I was late with both my kids) and so I didn't even think it was an option. So now I don't know what to do. Is it better to wait and let the baby come when it's ready. Also I have heard that being induced is more painful and can be a longer labor. And I have totally been counting on this labor being short (I know I am setting myself up for disappointment, but I don't care). And finally lets face it the baby is just easier to take care of right where it is.
However, the idea of going a week early is just so darn tempting. Who cares if it's longer and more painful if I have an epidural, right? Plus the idea of sleeping the night before, waking up and taking a shower, brushing my teeth, sounds so nice (the last two kids I have been in labor all night with!). And finally I just know that the week after I could have had my baby is will be so HARD because I will keep thinking "I could have had my baby by now!" And I could kind of have my body back.
What to do, of course Brett is all for going a week early. And I am tending to lean that way too. I guess will just have to wait and see what happens. Other stuff lately I found this really cool blog that does all sorts of crafts. Let me first say I don't do crafts and I am not sure why now I have decided that it sounds like fun. But I have managed to complete a few projects and I am really quite proud of myself.
Here are some cute bows that I made for Kyanna's hair and possibly the new baby (will see how much hair she has!) If you want to learn how to make them just go here
This is a bandanna dress that I made for Kyanna (yes I used a sewing machine, no one was more surprised than me!) anyways it is so so cute and so easy to make. Seriously with my not so great sewing skills I made this dress in less than 15 minutes and it was cheap about 4$ total. Here is the link for the dress if you are interested!
And finally here are some pictures of the kids using watercolor paints. This is their new favorite thing to do and I love that it's finally warm enough to be able to go outside and do it. I love it! No messes to clean up!

O.k. so it's been awhile since I have posted, not because I haven't had anything to post about, but basically because I have just been too lazy and well just didn't want to. Will Started soccer about three weeks ago. The first game was really fun the kids were so cute. They needed a lot of help to know which way to kick the ball. And they really didn't care when the ball went out of bounce they just kept playing.

The pictures that I have are the second game and was so so so cold. I am sorry I love my child and I love watching him play soccer but this was too cold. Luckily the game this last Saturday was cancelled due to the rain. I think though, that Will really enjoys playing. His friend from preschool is on the same team so I think that really helps.

I don't know if you can tell or not, but Will is the one with the hooded sweatshirt. Yes, like I said it was cold!

Waiting for the kick-off

Me and Kyanna just being cold! Did I mention that it was cold :)

Next, last Friday we finally hydroseeded our lawn. I am sorry if you get sick of reading about our lawn and really don't care. But it's a big deal to me! Brett has put ALOT of work into this backyard. And after all the work we are really counting on it being nice! I just want a nice backyard for the kids to go and play and not worry about weeds and stickers.

It was kind of cool to watch they guy hydroseed. The only bad part is now, along with watering it four times a day (thank goodness for the sprinkler system!), we can't walk on it for 7 weeks. That won't be until after I have the baby! I am sure it will be worth it though. We had to go and buy a fake owl to scare all the birds away. Twenty five bucks for a dumb plastic owl. So far it's managed to scare away only the small birds. I know this sounds bad but me and the kids have been throwing rocks at the big birds (only small rocks). Sorry if you don't like that but we put a lot of time and money into this backyard and I am not going to let stupid birds mess it up!

And finally! We moved Will and Kyanna into the same room so we could get the other room ready for the baby. We could move Will downstairs but I don't think that Will, or me for that matter, is ready for him to go down quite yet. Last night was there first night and they fell asleep on the way home from the Grandparents, so we haven't really had put them to bed yet. I'll let you know how it goes! Anyways remember the last post. Well this is how we found Kyanna sleeping the other night.
Not quite as silly, but still!
