It's cute on her, but not for her (a little big anyways)
Notice: the boys are still in the PJs (remember, I did not get them dressed)
This is just to show the back.
I like how it turned out - from far away. I've got a lot to practice on - but am excited to practice. Fun, fun, fun.

She also had a First - First Time in a Swing. She enjoyed it!
On Thursday Ben was off from work and so I took Jonas out on a "date." I told him the night before that we were going on a date and the boy had no clue what that meant. He kept pointing to things on the wall asking if that was the "date." Our date was walking on the nice path close to our home to the coffee shop. I had a free-coupon and so we went and had a HUGE hot-chocolate. Luckily it was a brisk morning. It took forever to cool down the cocoa (thank goodness there was a huge heaping of whipped cream to pacify Jonas while we waited), but it was really good. The two of us together, however, didn't even finish half of it. It was a lot of fun just walkin' and a talkin' with Jonas.

Jonas was so cute. We told him we wanted to take his picture so he came over and posed for us. Gotta love him.Miles is so adorable; unfortunately he doesn't pose so well for pictures. When you ask him to smile it just turns out. . . well, a little awkward. It's either a full-out cheese smile with the eyes closed or this - a half smile. I love it when we can capture a truly happy-smile. It melts my heart.

"Everyone, the pie is yucky."
We had the missionaries over tonite and our neighbor had dropped off some key-lime pie. So we served that. Miles came back to the table for dessert, took a bite, and then announced: "Everyone, the pie is yucky." I was laughing. It was great. Once I explained what the pie was, that it was a lime pie, he practically finished it off.
Ahhhh, kids are so funny to have around.

F is for flowers.
I is for Iguana. (I had to show this one since it is Miles' favorite.)
Q is for quails. This is to show that, yes, my boys will do Yoga. But, alas, my boys will also be . . . boys.

Yes, he looks so sweet. And he is. But he doesn't let me forget that he is also TWO. But I love him so much. I was out feeding Emmy on the couch and the boys were in the kitchen eating lunch. Ben told Jonas to come out and tell me that I am pretty. So Jonas came out and said, instead, "Mom you are happy." (I didn't know he was suppose to say "pretty." But that is so typical of Jonas. He mixes up words all the time. Love it) "Yes, Jonas, I am happy. Are you happy, too?" "No, I'm frustrated." Hehe. (I wonder where he gets that from?)
Oh no. We've got a Flasher in the family.
My handsome men going off to conference. Ben and I split sessions - I go in the morning, he goes in the afternoon, and I go to Priesthood. Haha. Kidding. I suggested Ben take Miles this afternoon and Ben agreed. They are such cute boys and I love them both. I am lucky to live with such a great man and such great little men. I'm even luckier to be loved by them. We'll see how conference goes. . .
As a side note, I put up Miles' quote last week but never made reference to it. But as we were talking one night before bed he just randomly told me what he wanted to name his babies. He stated, "Jonas Table, Mount Rushmore, Emily Coat, and Furnance Chair." I'll be sure to let his fiance know this one day. If she agrees to it, I just might agree in letting her steal away the 2nd love of my life.

Miles helping lift a 2x4 (or something like that).
Building it "Ford Tough." (jonas' middle name is Ford)
Making progress. . .
Ben and his crew.
Jim with the same crew.Emmy helped by. . . looking cute? I did help a little by measuring each plank of wood so we'd know where to use it (since our yard sloped in different areas).
The Final Fence:
Yeah, and thanks to Jim and Diana again for all their help.
Phase 1 of our Yard Improvement is now complete. Now we'll move on to Phase 2 - putting out grass seed (again). I'm not sure how many phases our Yard Improvement project has, but it's got to be somewhere close to . . . 100?
p.s. who knew i'd post so many pictures of our fence being built!? sheesh.
