All the snow has melted in our yard....finally! Check out what we found all around the base of one of our garden borders. This little garden hedge has been the home of a small mouse I think all winter long. All those little pellets are poop! Gusting! (as calvin would say). Needless to say, it was hard to keep my boys from investigating the poop pellets closely. Why do boys find this kind of stuff so fascinating anyway?

It was his cousin's birthday too. A.J. was born on the same day as Gunner, three hours after him. My sister was in my room during my labor, helping. I guess she had some sympathy pains like you wouldn't believe! Anyways, our midwife had a busy day that day.
Friday night we took Tucker and Gunner to Cirque of dreams, jungle fantasy. It was really cool! I would describe it as Alice in Wonderland meets the Jungle book. Both of the boys loved it. The acrobats, contortionists, balancing acts were all so amazing and the costumes were so neat and colorful.

I worked on my basket some more last night. It is coming along. Slowly but surely. Mom, Marie, and Calli all finished theirs. Gunner's birthday is on Saturday and everyone will be here for dinner so I am trying to get mine done before then. I'll post a picture when it is finished.
Gunner will be turning 6 years old. He wants to go to Chucky Cheese (gag!), and then have a pinata at home afterwards, and then go swimming at H2Oasis. Haha. He has some big plans for Saturday.
I have 9 weddings that I am planning this year so far. It has been alot of fun for the most part. Sometimes the logistics part of the planning gets tiresome for me but the creative part is always exciting. Chris says he knows when I am thinking about a wedding because I always get a certain look. He can see my brain wheels turning! Right now I am brainstorming ways to dress up a cute little jar of homemade jam as favors for a wedding.
I am homeschooling my boys, today is test day for Tucker who is in first grade. It has been pretty great homeschooling them so far. Chris and I decided to take it one year at a time. That is a much easier way to look at it vs. thinking of teaching them all through school. They will be starting baseball soon which I think will be a lot of fun for them. Gunner and Tucker are both in Karate right now. Tucker is an orange belt and Gunner is a yellow belt. They are really cute to watch!

Hmmmm.....what to say......I keep very busy with my children and my wedding design business. I also try to make time for other crafty activities (basket weaving, scrapbooking, gardening, you name it). I have a great husband too who manages at Costco during the day and wrestles with the boys at night.
My boys are Tucker, Gunner, and Calvin....(I am getting tired just thinking of them). They are all three completely busting at the seams with energy. My little girl is Raegan. We all call her Rae-rae. She is a bundle of cuddly-gooeyness. She also has a set of lungs on her that you wouldn't believe!
Well, I've never been too good at keeping a journal but I am excited to update this and see what everyone else is doing.
