planting season!

two weeks ago we planted our garden and flowers for the year! 
i look forward to this every year! 
i love going to the nursery and looking at all the flowers and coming home and planting them! 
it's always a fun evening when we do that!
^^so messy! but so much fun! just give them another month or so and they will all be more grown and even more prettier! i'm sure i'll have a photoshoot of my flowers then! haha!^^
^^every year we buy this hanging strawberry plant and andrew was all about this year! 
he just reached as high as he could to grab all of the strawberries he could! he loved them!^^
dirty fingers from planting! nothing is better! 
i'm so glad andrew is learning already that being outside is important and from hard work 
you can grow your own food! he loves to help me water every day. 
i'm glad i'm creating these memories with him!

little andrew turned 2 on friday! 
we had the best day celebrating him! 
we started the day off with presents and his favorite breakfast. 
smoothie, sausage and pancakes! 
photos of his special day below! 
i only choose a few cause i didn't want you scrolling for days. :)
^^this face!!!! i LOVE him. i'll just say the tractor was a great idea. 
i'd say it was his favorite present he got!^^
^^all day long on his birthday he kept saying "presents, presents!" ha ha^^
^^he did so good opening them all up by myself! 
look at that smile opening up a choo choo!^^
^^this was on the way to the mall and let me just say... those blue eyes still get me.^^
^^daddy's best little buddy!^^
^^this is when the train was coming.... guys look how happy he is! pure joy!^^
^^we took andrew to the mall to ride the train! 
he loved it besides when we left daddy behind for one ride!^^
^^we went to our favorite spot for lunch... burger bar! 
they give you a sucker with your meals and we normally hide the suckers from andrew 
but since it was his birthday we decided to let him have one and this was coming home! haha^^
^^that evening we had a small little party for this guy and he was all about it! 
he loved having all his cousins there, opening more presents 
and having his favorite pizza for dinner!^^
^^look at that grin! he loved his birthday! 
and nothing made me happier than seeing him so happy all day!^^
eating his birthday cake on his special plate!

andrew turns 2!

my little baby is 2 years old. 
when and how did that happen i don't know but one things for sure. 
i love him, i love him, i love him! 
we're going to be celebrating your birthday ALL DAY LONG! 

andrew's favorite things right now at 2 years old. 
-choo choo trains. he's obsessed and i love it! 
-smoothies. every day he wants to make one and the excitement
 on his face when we do is just pure joy. 
-going to grandmas house. i think he asks every day to go! 
-tractors. he really loves to tip them like mater does. 
-going for walks. he loves to be outside and he's been all about going for walks lately! 
-he loves to cook. he's recently learned how to open the oven so he's about that, 
making smoothies, pancakes and eggs are his favorite things to cook. 

he's starting to come the little talker. 
he even can say 2-3 word sentences. 
he loves to dance and anytime music comes on, he busts a move. 
he's the best little kisser and randomly he will just come up and kiss my leg or my arm.
he loves church and playing with his cousins. 
he's the happiest little fella and we sure do love his spunkiness! 

i love you andrew. 
i love this little boy you are and the little boy you're becoming. 
i'm so thankful and blessed to be your mama! 
have the best 2nd birthday!

valentines 2017!

is it to late to blog about valentines? 
i'm slacking in the blogging department lately and two reasons. 
one. freaking dead of winter and not doing a dang thing, therefore nothing to blog about. 
annnnd two. i have been busy with other things. 
sorry little blog.. i haven't forgot about you. 
valentines day was a good one. brandon went to work and he came home with the prettiest red roses 
for me and my favorite treat... hi-chews! 
we made our favorite pasta meal and had cheesecake and then watched a movie as a family. 
it was a good valentines.
ps. andrew's smile in the first picture!! hahahah he's the best at saying "cheeeeese for photos."
^^i don't think brandon has ever gotten me a dozen red roses and i loved them. 
soooo pretty! thanks hubby!^^
and my little valentines. 
so lucky to have two valentines in my life.

little memories

as we drove up to the church building 
i hear you're little sweet voice in the back seat saying, "chuch chuch." 
little andrew looooves church. he's a handful to keep quite during sacramenting meeting 
but he's all about the bread and water. he sits so patiently waiting for it to come down our row.
andrew's all about nursery too. he loves the toy train in there. 
seeing his sweet little spirit already loving going to church just makes my mama heart happy. 

if i go into another room or walk down the hall at home, 
i hear andrew yell, "MOM.....MOM....MOM!" 
it's the best. i love that he always has to know where i'm at or where i'm going.

andrew's latest obsession is smoothies. 
he always goes to the pantry and points at the blender and goes, "MOOODDIE." 
the other day i said let's go watch a movie and he thought i was saying lets go make a smoothie. 
he really is the cutest. 

he's the best help. 
he loves to help me cook, unload the dishwasher and fold the laundry.
and he's the best at throwing things away in the garbage.   

he loves to go to grandmas. it's his favorite place i'd say. 
i hope he always has a love to go there. 
we just love our grandma!

andrew 2nd birthady will be here before we know it! 
my mama heart needs time to slow down. 
i sure do love my little partner in crime.

andrew's little voice

andrew is such a little talker lately. 
it was like one week he just decided to start talking. 
we love it. 
it's one of those things as a parent you're so happy he's at that stage 
but also sad that he's getting so big! 
some of these words might not seem like words but i hear him say these words everyday 
and as his mama i know what he's saying. :) 
my favorite part in this video is 
iccceee creeeeaam 
and him saying nice 
and stinky.
he's the cutest and silliest!
andrew we love you and love your little voice!

snow snow snow!

it snowed really good here last week for two days and we loved it! 
it was so much fun! the snow was the perfect texture to play in and it wasn't even cold outside. 
my kind of winter. ;) 
i really love all the seasons and feel so lucky to be able to experience each one 
but when winter doesn't snow and its freezing outside thats when i'm wanting some spring. 
we played outside for an hour this evening and ate some clean snow, shoveled, 
built a snowman and of course took some pictures. 
^^mama showing him the joy of eating snow!^^
^^he was all about it after that!^^
^^i love being your mama andrew!^^
^^trying to shove it all in. hahahha^^
^^making the perfect snowball!^^
he's the best snowman builder i've ever seen. 
happy winter friends!

2017 here we come!

cheers to 2017!
i have big goals and things i'd like to work on to be better at this year. 
i love the feeling a new year gives you. 
guys i gotta toot my own horn for a minute. 
i went back to last years "new years goal post" and i'm so dang proud of myself. 
i accomplished all the goals i set last year!! 
minus the working out one... i did that one till about may and stopped. ha!
but all my other ones i did. it was such a rewarding feeling reading that post and knew 
i actually worked hard and made those goals happen! 
i'm hoping to do the same this year! 

some goals for 2017 i have: 

come a photographer.
this is my main goal for this next new year. 
i'm going to work and push myself and make this come true. 
capturing moments for others would be a dream.
i can do this! 

read the scriptures.
i'm not saying every day because we all know that probably isn't going to happen. 
i'm shooting for once a week. it might not seem that much but we're going to start off easy. 

work out.
my goal is to work out 2 times a week. 
and if that gets good maybe 3. ;) 

just other few things...
have a good routine for mornings and every day life
try to be reading a book
try new recipes 
try more sewing projects
be present
be better at blogging or writing down moments 
have courage and be kind
be the best wife and mother i can

can't wait to see what happens this next year. 

i have a feeling its going to be GREAT!
