We haven't had anything too exciting going on around here, but I took some quick pictures of the kids on Sunday before heading off to church. They both look so sweet in these pictures and they are most of the time, but Sunday was the exception for Raegan! She is such a little pill, does anyone else feel like they go to church to walk the halls with their kids?! I usually have to stay with Reagan in nursery because I'm a softy and hate to leave her crying. I especially feel bad for the poor nursery leaders! On Sunday, I decided it would be nice to finally get to go to Sunday School and Releif Society so I snuck out after finding her some toys and just as I sat down in Sunday School, which is in the chapel, I heard her start screaming. Remember, I'm in the chapel and she's clear down the hall and around the corner, she's got some lungs!! It would stop about every 10 minutes for about 5 minutes, and then start back up again. They told me just to leave her and they would come get me if they needed to but I felt sooo bad. Luckily, I couldn't hear her in Relief Society! Preisthood is in the Chapel and Chris could still hear her so he caved and went and got her, the poor thing. Her eyes were red and swollen and she was so distraught! She clung to me and kept smiling and saying "mommy" as we walked to the car. We'll see how next week goes, I'm definitely hoping for less tears! On the other hand Carson LOVES Sunbeams and is so excited to show/tell us what he did!


Party #2!

Carson was a lucky boy this year and was able to have two birthday parties! Chris's family weren't able to come to Carson's party last week so his PaPa and Yia Yia threw him a party in Price on Saturday. It was so good to see everyone and spend time with family. They had it decorated in Transformers, which Carson loves, he thought it was so cool! Like always, Yia Yia had made an amazing meal, she's such a good cook and we were all stuffed. Carson couldn't wait to blow out his candles. He concentrates a little too much on blowing so hard that he always ends up spitting all over the cake! Chris had to take off some of the frosting, but he always gets them on the first blow!:)
 As you can see, Raegan loved the cake!

 He was very excited to open his presents and got a lot more fun stuff, he's pretty spoiled!

Carson & Raegan love going to their PaPa & Yia Yia's and we had such a good time! Thanks for such a good party, we love you!


Party, Party, Party!!

We've had such a busy week and it's been so much fun! My parents came down on Wednesday night and broght my neice Chloe. We don't get to see her very often so Carson was soo excited. They play so good together, you hardly even realize they're around. It's crazy to think that they are only one month apart, Chloe is about a foot taller than Carson!

He brought treats to preschool on thursday for his birthday and he thought that was pretty cool. My mom picked him up from school and he was more then happy to show Grandma his class! We shopped all day Thursday and then got everything ready for Carson's party, which he has been talking about for the past 3 weeks! He really wanted a Hot Wheels party, big surprise, so that's what we did. He originaly wanted it at the park, but living in Utah in the month of March doesn't give us that luxury! We ended up just doing it in our basement and it worked out great. We had 14 little kids come and it was so much fun!

 We had some pizza and then played some games. I put Chris in charge of games. They played duck duck goose, simon says and red light green light, nothing too exciting. It doesn't take much to entertain 3 and 4 year olds!

 Carson was so excited to open up his presents, and he got a ton of fun stuff. Thanks everyone! Chris and I bought him a Spider Man bike and a couple transformers which are his favorite things in the world! He loves his bike and has been riding it everyday.

 Look at my beautiful neice Chloe, she's so stinkin cute! I told ya she was tall, remember they're one month apart!! Hopefully Carson catches up or he's not going to like it very much when he's older!

I think the biggest hit of the party was the pinata, the kids loved it! I didn't have anywhere to hang it so Chris was brave enough to hold the broomstick while the kids smacked it around. Some of those kids are definitly going to be ball players! It was a little harder then we thought so Chris had to break it for them. They all left with way too much candy, their mom's probably weren't too happy with me!!:)

 You're looking at the best picture that I could get of all the kids, nobody was wanting to take pictures!

 After the party, everyone slept for a couple of hours, yes even my mom and dad and I. We were all exhausted! We finished off Carson's birthday at Jump On It. It's just a giant warehouse filled with trampolines, kindof an accident waiting to happen but the kids love it!

When I put Carson to bed that night he told me it was his favorite day ever! He's already asking when his next birthday party is!

My parents bought Carson a trampoline for his birthday so Saturday all the guys set it up and the girls went shopping. The kids have been jumping on it ever since! That night we got a babysitter and the adults went out to dinner and to Trafalga to play games, we felt like we were in college again but we had a good time! We were all sad to say goodbye, Raegan still keeps on asking where NaNa and Poppie are!:) Thanks mom and dad for such a good weekend and for all your help!


Happy Birthday Carson!!!

I can't believe it, my baby boy is 4 years old today!! He's growing up way too fast!! We just had his birthday party and it was a success, the kids had a ton of fun. After their sugar rush they finally crashed and are down for a nap which was much needed! There will be more pictures to come but I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDY CARSON, We love you so much!

Seriously, good his grin get any more cheesier?!!


Itty Bitty Ball

We signed Carson up to play in Itty Bitty Ball at the Lehi Legacy center and he was so excited to start! They go through all the sports and teach them the basics. It's hilarious watching 3 and 4 year olds trying to play a game of basketball or football! It's pretty much chaos, but they all had so much fun! 

Carson was on Team Superman, they had a little cheer and everything. They had a huddle everytime they switched stations and he thought that was pretty cool! He would look up at me about every 5 minutes to make sure I was still watching him, it was too cute! 

 Carson said his favorite sports were baseball and basketball, he told me that he could run fast like his Uncle Matt when he played basketball!:)


He was pretty proud after hitting the ball, look at him strut his stuff!:)

Life Style Touch came and took their pictures but I wasn't able to scan it so I had to take a picture of the picture so it's a little blurry but it's my favorite picture! He's such a cheeseball!

Raegan thought it was so much fun to watch her brother but I think she wanted to be out there with him a little too much! Let's just say I spent a lot of time dragging her back to the bleachers!


Liv's Birthday

Livee's birthday was on the 16th so Jess and I decided to take the kids to the Discovery Center at the Gateway mall. It is the cutest place ever! It's like a mini world for kids, they had everything and the kids loved it! Sorry for the picture overload!

 Carson spent most of his time driving around in the cars and Raegan LOVED the horse!
 They had a little garden where they could plant and pick veggies, it was so cute!

 Liv and Raegan loved making sandwhiches at the Deli. Raegan thought she could eat them but wasn't too pleased with the taste!:)

Liv's Party was on Saturday and she was so cute! She's so sweet and I love her so much!!

Happy Birthday Liv!!


Valentines Day

 Every year for Valentines Day we get the kids a few things and this year I decided to go to the Dollar Store to save a little money, big mistake! Every toy that I bought was either broken when they opened it or broke the first time they played with it! Good thing the only thing they really care about is the candy!

My two little sweeties!!!

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day!!!


It's been awhile!!!

I looked at the date on my last post, October 2009, could it really have been that long ago?!?! Time sure has flown by!! My friends and family keep telling me how sick they are of seeing the post "Carving and Cornbellies" everytime they check my blog so I thought I better update! I'm not even going to begin to try and catch up with everything that's been going on so I'll just fill ya in on how my kiddo's are. That's the reason everyone checks this anyways right!

Carson will be 4 in March!! I really can't beleive he's that old. He started Preschool in the Fall and he LOVES it!! He goes to Learning Dynamics twice a week and it just isn't enough. He would go everyday if he could. He's learning so much, and is quite the little smarty pants! He writes all his numbers and letters and is already starting to sound out words! (mom's are supposed to brag right!) When he see's me writing he tells me "Mom that's not how you do it, let me show you!" He started going to Sunbeams this year and thinks he's pretty big!

He's mister smiley Joe! He's always smiling and is such a good natured kid. He's all boy and still LOVES to play with cars or anything with wheels! He loves to draw, play football, to be outside and loves his little sister! He is always so concerned about Raegan, where she is, what she's doing and if she's ok. It's so sweet, they are the best of friends! He's naturally curious and asks questions about EVERYTHING!! He comes up with some funny stuff and keeps us laughing!

Raegan just turned two in January and she keeps us busy!! That's actually an understatement, she is into EVERYTHING!! She's got quite the spunky personality! When she started walking she was running & jumping! She climbs on everything and jumps off everything. She's a little dare devil and will do just about anything. I really don't know how we've gotten this far without any broken bones! She's not super girly but still loves her babies! She can play cars with her brother and LOVES to wrestle with him, she can usually take him down!

She is quite the drama girl, but she is still such a little sweetheart!! She loves to cuddle on the couch with her binky, blanky and every stuffed animal that she owns! She LOVES animals, especially puppies! She goes to bed at night with at least 4 or 5, and when she wakes up you have to get them all out so she can pack them around! Those of you who know her know that she is definitely a mama's girl! Don't get me wrong she loves her daddy but she always has to know where I am!

We really are so blessed to have two healthy, beautiful kids and couldn't be luckier! I really am going to try and be better at keeping this updated but don't hold me to it!
