A sleepover with Heavenly Father

Easton said the cutest thing the other day, and I just had to share it. He and Andru had just had a sleepover and he was so excited about it.

Easton: "Do you think Heavenly Father would sleepover?"
Me: "I am sure he would love to sleepover."
Easton: "And Jesus and their Ghost..."
Me: trying to hold back a giggle..... "I am sure they would love to."

After that he was trying to figure out where all of them would sleep, luckily in his bedroom he has two sets of bunk beds so they would all fit... ;)

This was a picture from his first day of preschool, he was SOO excited!! I can't believe how big he is getting!
Ian has been teething for four months straight it feels like, with nothing coming through, he is skipping his eye teeth I guess, and going straight to his molars. Here is a cute picture of him, you can see all his drool..... so stinkin cute, how couldn't you want to grab his puffy cheeks and give him a big old kiss...?

And here are a couple of the newest pictures of our house....

Get me organized....

So all of you organizational guru's out there, this one is for you.... I would love for you to give me your best advice on how to get organized. I love a clean house, but I think I spend more time cleaning it because I can't seem to get myself organized. Whenever I try to organize something it seems I go so overboard that it would be impossible for me to keep it that way. What do you throw away... what do you keep... how do you store it.... papers, nick knacks, keepsakes, kids toys....... husbands stuff... you know what I am talking about, that pile of stuff they empty out of their pockets every night onto your dresser..... and the thing in the corner that they are working on. This is for anyone, and everyone who has that special trick that helps to keep you organized. Please share!!

My Little Builder

My little builder......

Isn't he such a cutie!! I try to go down and help Court with the house, and instead I end up chasing Ian around, grabbing all of the tools he finds out of his hands. I finally went and bought a little plastic hammer for him because he wanted to help daddy so bad. He walks all over pounding everything, including me...

Court took three days off of work and finished the log walls. Then he hired a guy to help him set the trusses. Here are some pictures of our house with the trusses set... Sorry they are probably boring to most of you. Thanks so much to Ryan, Davey, Brent and Dwayne (the general contractor court hired) who spent all of their Saturday helping us. We couldn't have done it without you, and appreciate your help so much!!

Our Future Home & My Little Hero!

Here are some pictures of our log house. I am so excited to see it going up, and Court hopes to have all of the log walls up, and the trusses up by next weekend.

I can't even believe how much work it takes, and how hard he works everyday. (I can't even lift one side of a full log, and he lifts them by himself and carries them on his shoulder) He is up everyday at five thirty to go to work, comes home from work, works till dark at the house, and then finishes off the day working on his home businesses. I don't know how he finds the energy, but I am so grateful that he does!

We went over to our good friends Ryan and Janna's house last night, and played their wii with them. They have a game called kabookii (sp?) it is made by the people who made cranium, it was a lot of fun! Then we decided to try out the boxing. Oh man am I sore, my arms and back ache. Their daughter's name is AshLeigh, and she is about a year older than Easton, don't tell him I told you, but he has the biggest crush on her. I never thought Easton would be the kind of little boy to have a crush, because he is such a boy!! Oh no though, the other day we were in the car, and here was our conversation..

Easton: Mom, AshLeigh is funny.

Me: Ya, she is funny...

Easton: (Kind of shy like) She is kind of cute!

Me: Yes she is a cute girl, huh....? (It caught me so by surprise)!!

I wanted to laugh, but also didn't want to make to big of deal of it. I just thought boys were supposed to think girls had cooties till they were like at least twelve... me hopeful thinking at least twenty eight ;)

Easton Roo, you are my little Hero, you have the spirit of a twenty year old all squished into a little body. You have so much spunk, spirit, energy, life, but you so easily forgive. You can be a little firecracker, but at the next minute you are tackling me for a love and kiss. When I hurt your feelings, or discipline you and see your little bottom lip poke out, it breaks my heart. I hope you always know how much I love you!! You are such a good example to me!
