Kids do the darndest things...

I guess this is my 100th post! YAY!!! But that's not what I'm here to write about. Our house isn't that big, but it is mostly (fake) wood floors, so it takes a while to sweep it. The other day I was sweeping, and my "wonderful" little boy followed me around the entire time with his recorder, blasting the only note he could play. Usually, I would be pulling my hair out but typically, he tries to grab the broom or dustpan and then cries when he doesn't get it... so that one, close-to-a-dog-whistle-pitched recorder note was beautiful music. I actually finished sweeping. What a great day!

Yesterday, I was also trying to clean. The recorder was no where to be found. But what was found was this huge spiderman alarm clock my little brother passed down to Grayson. Its batteries are almost dead so very mumbled, Spiderman would say "I'm just your friendly neighborhood Spiderman" followed by some bizarre dying crunchy noises. Well, the button to that little phrase was easy to push so that's what followed me around as I was cleaning. Over and over and over and over and over. "I'm just your friendly neighborhood Spiderman" crunch crunch crunch.

Next time, I think I'll dig out the recorder before I start cleaning.

Mommy and Grayson and Daddy in their matching shirts; Easter Sunday.

Grayson doesn't smile for the camera anymore, so this is genuine. And my favorite pic in the world. HE got a little frog that does flips and this was the first time we wound it for him. haha

Still watching the frog...

If you haven't noticed, I haven't blogged in a while. Our computer crashed... again. BUT, my amazing tech brother fixed it... again. So he will be mailing our hard drive back today so we should have a computer up and running in a few days. YAY!!!!!! SO I thought I would just fill you in on the few things that have happened over the span of this time.

#1- nothing exciting.

#2- my husband turned 25... and for your information says that he is NOT old, and won't be old until he is really old. It bothers us when young people say they are old... haha.

#3- We officially have tickets to fly to Alabama in June!!! I will be meeting Barry's oldest brother and family for the first time, and although I know them relatively well and I already love them, I'm kind of nervous. haha! It's like I'll have to impress his family all over again, like I did so they would let him marry me!!! But seriously... I AM SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!

#4- I am already 13 weeks and 4 days along, and today they couldn't find the baby's heartbeat. I freaked out a little bit, but they found it on the sonogram. The doctor said the baby was hiding behind my pelvic bone. So everything is great, I am healthy, baby is healthy...

#5- I found out I have only gained one pound thus far. Which should be really exciting news, but it's not. It's like being told... "You're just fat." haha. Oh well, it will give me a resolution for the new year right?

#6- Barry's almost done with all his pre-reqs and will be applying for the nursing program soon. I am so proud of him and can't wait to have him home for the evenings this summer.

So there you go... I could only come up with six things for an entire month's span. Oh well, life is good! Hope you all had great Easters... sorry I haven't been able to keep up on your blogs!


Barry's birthday happened to fall on Easter this year but I tried to make it his birthday anyway. On Friday, we went bowling with some great friends of ours (don't ask our scores, they were pathetic haha) then we went to another friend's house for cake and ice cream. Next comes Easter. I was supposed to sing in Sacrament meeting, but go extremely sick the Friday before (Don't worry, I am fine now) so the night before, I taught Barry a new song and he ended up singing in my place. My Grandparents were in town, and by the end of the song they were both bawling... oh yeah, he's that good! For those of you who don't know, my husband pretty much has the most gorgeous voice ever, and you should all be jealous :). So after church, we had Barry's birthday BEFORE we celebrated Easter. So we opened his presents: two cards from my parents and grandparents, and then I got him a new frisbee golf set and I also gave him a bag that he lost about four years ago. It was his favorite bag and my dad found it a month ago in their garage so I wrapped it up and he was soooooooo excited! So then we had MORE cake and icecream and that was Barry's Great birthday. I love my 25 year old stud!
