The Grazing Tray...

I was reading Dr. Sear's website the other day on eating habits of toddlers. He had a perfect solution to my children's crazy grazing issues. Create a greazing tray! So I took a muffin pan and filled it with stuff I know my kids will eat. They love veggies and fruit and Jess loves string cheese. So I filled each slot with some of those things. We had tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, grapes, and chuncks of cheese. As soon as they pulled me to the fridge, I pulled out the tray and they could pick whatever they wanted from the tray. It has been working wonderful. So that's what they get if they get hungery between meals. Here are some pics....

The girls chowing down....

I hope it works!!!

This morning I took the girls outside and we played on the grass for a while. The weather is PERFECT!!!!

Here is how dinner went at our house tonight......

Jessie PRAISED the spaghetti Gods....


Sadie CURSED them....

After dinner a little of this.....awwww

and a lot of these....(I love little Jess' doe eyes)

Kids went down pretty easy and I watched some SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE! Love that show. All in all a pretty good night....besides forcing Sadie to eat her dinner as she is crying her eyes out and cleaning up Jessie after her's...yah, it was a good night.

Sadie, Jess and I have been really sick the past couple of days. We have been throwing up, the girls have had fevers and we have all been tired and grumpy. Finally after two GREAT nights of sleep (thank you NyQuil..for me) we are all feeling better!

It all started Saturday when we headed up to St. George to see one of my best friend's growing up (Erika Egbert) get married. We made it up, spent a few hours at my parent's and had to leave before I even got to see Erika because Jess was barfing and had a super high fever. So we didn't even get to go to anything for Er. I am so sorry girl! Love ya and Congrats! But after I got thrown up on, I decided it was time to go home.

The girl's had a doctor's appointment yesterday and he said they had minor ear infections and basically just had a bug and now cold's on top of that. No fun. But we are all feeling better today! Thank goodness. I thought we were done being sick, but with the change in the weather that will always do it!

In other news...Justin cut his mop on his head and he looks so handsome. Most of our friends knew what it looked like (it was crazy long) but he finally decided it was time to go. I love it short and hope it stays this time :)

Also, I need some serious advice!!! My girls are DRIVING me CRAZy with their eating habits. They are constantly wanting to eat, but when I make something they only want a few bites and then the rest ends up on the floor. So I get them down and then 20 minutes later they are dragging me back in the kitchen. I was reading online that kids like to graze. But does that mean that I have to live in the kitchen? It seems as soon as I am done cleaning up their last mess, they want to eat again... HELP! Any ideas?

Thanks guys!

Bittersweet Ending!

Last night was my last night of my favorite photography class! It was such a bittersweet ending! Bitter because I really loved my class, my teacher, getting out of the house...blah blah blah and sweet because I WON THE PHOTO CONTEST!!! Yay! I oculdn't believe it! My swwet little Sadie up on display! So rad! My class started out with about 16 people and ended up with only four of us. I loved it because it was much more intimate and we really got some wonderful one on one time. I learned a lot in this class and I can't wait till next semester till I can start learning a bunch of new things!

Last night ended with a bang! First with the winning and then we STUFFED our faces with brownies, pizza, chips and soda. I was sick when I left, but those of you who know me and my eating habbits (hmmm Mary) haha.. KNOW that I can throw it down! I woke up with some serious stomach issues! lol

A girl in my class(she is seriously talented!) and I walked out together and were a little depressed it was all over, but so excited for all the learning to come!

Cohen Gregory Earl

After a looooong and rough labor, little Cohen Gregory Earl was finally born! He is the cutest little thing I have ever seen!!! Here is just a few...I will let Kattie show him off on her blog!....hemmmm...I am emailing the pics right now, Kate. lol Sadie loves her little baby cousin! She immediately wanted to hold him and stroke and kiss his head. She kept saying to him, okay??? in a sweet little voice. She was so concerned for him. Jess had no idea what was going on and kept trying to poke his eyes out.

Katie did great! It was long and hard for her, but with the help and support of Jason they got through it!!!!

Just some quick ones from the hospital.
