One of the Fam!

So I often like to think that God has a pretty good sense of humor. He would have to when you think about the way little kids are and especially after things that Hayden does. In his most recent prayers he has to thank him for all his favorite cartoons. We do not tell him to do this. In fact, when I tell him something like, "thank you for mommy and daddy," he precedes to say, "Daint you, Caillou, Dragon..tales, etc." It gets me laughing that's for sure. Well last night we were reading scriptures and Hayden insists, I mean insists, on holding "Jesus", every time we read. It is a flimsy bookmark that is now very hashed. Well, he starts naming our names (one of his favorite activities) and then says, "Jesus Lund!" I just bust up laughing. I guess it's all just relative.
Here is the Jesus bookmark in all it's glory.

Here's your sign!

After I came downstairs the other day, I saw this...

I suppose he was trying to tell me he was done with breakfast. What do you think?

You know you're a mom when...

There are coins stuck in most of your door stops
Instead of romantic candles and a relaxing, roomy garden tub, you are stepping around this every day while you shower.

I thought this would be a fun little tag to start. I just have to take a minute sometimes and laugh at the things that we see, think, and do on a daily basis. I love being a mom and it is such a rewarding job. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Now anyone who reads this who has kids, please be creative and do a "You know your a mom when..." post.

Millcreek Canyon on a Saturday Afternoon

Yesterday we decided to have a little family outing to Millcreek Canyon. Brian wanted to film a video for his fitness website and I wanted to shoot some pictures of Hayden. We thought it would be fun to pack a picnic and make a fun afternoon of it. It was so much fun and it was beautiful up there. I am glad Brian was able to take most of the day yesterday to have a little break. Here are a few pictures of our adventure!
Hayden and I eating our yummy delicious lunch.
Brian and Hayden. There was no angle in which I could avoid the sun in the face. I think it is still an adorable picture.
This picture was taken with my Mac because I had put my digital in the car and I ran out of film. Hayden loved getting his picture taken yesterday and was very photogenic. Who knew you could shoot 24 pictures in 10 minutes with a 2 year old!
We took the scenic route of Wasatch Blvd. on the way home and this is one thing we saw. They would come really close to the car. It was really cool to see them prance around too.

Not much going on!

So there really isn't too much going on right now but it was certainly time for an update. I am still pregnant and growing daily. I have started to enter into the completely uncomfortable stage. I am anxious for my #2 little man to arrive. I can't believe it's coming so fast! I go to an appointment on Monday and then I start on the every two weeks schedule. Crazy!

Brian and I are both doing school this semester. I am actually enjoying myself and am happy to know that after this, I am done. So what if it took me 5 years to get an associates! I am just proud that I did it while getting married young and having a baby so soon. Not to mention finishing up while having a toddler and being 7 months pregnant.

Brian started a second job at Discover Card. Lets face it, the economy sucks and we weren't getting any benefits for this baby. We were wondering where in the crap we were going to come up with $5,000.00. The stress of the baby cost has been lifting seeing that we will only be paying $250.00 now. Phewww! Brian, however, is stressed with working 50+ hours a week and doing two classes. I joke that he is my part time husband but I really am grateful that he is out there supporting us. Hayden is having a hard time adjusting to having his daddy gone. Thank heaven's for Steve Gardner down the road and a couple awesome uncles to fill in some play time when needed.

We are also dogless for all those who haven't heard. It was really hard to give Kobe away but we knew it was in the best interest of him. He got so huge and needed a big yard. A nice family living on an acre of land and four little girls to play with is the ideal place where Kobe lives now. I still get sad, but I know that with the baby coming, and a busy husband and self, it was going to be to much stress.

I can't much think of anything else. I do have one recent picture of Hayden to post. I love his face. He was a little angry with me. I had left to go pick my parents up from the airport while he was napping at their house. Trenton was left in charge and when Hayden woke up and realized he hadn't had his binky the whole nap and that we had forgotten one, he was quite upset. His obsession right now is Caillou. A whiny little cartoon character. I don't mind it too much, but when your toddler is screaming at you when it's not on and claiming Caillou to be his "best friend," you got problems! This was Trenton's way of calming him down. He found Caillou on You Tube and strapped on the earphones. He was happy with that idea but I sure got the evil eye when I walked through the door.
