Lovin' the sunshine...

Not too much going on with us. We have been home quite a bit, which has been great! I enrolled in a gel nails course, so I am looking forward to that next month. I will set up in the basement. I think it will be fun. I have also started to get busier with Shade, which is nice while Jesse is in school. He is liking school and the change of pace from work.
The kids are doing well. Cade has taken a liking to Shrek and wants to watch it ALL the time. It is nice the first couple times so I can get things done, but now I feel like he is a couch potato and he is only 2. We have been trying to get him busy with other things so he doesn't want to watch tv so much. I think it is the start of a life long struggle of no tv or video games. He is already obsessed with the Wii controllers. He always wants to play MarioKart with Jesse. He thinks he's playing anyway!
Jenna is 7 months today! She is sitting up, so I had to get a picture. She is a bit tippy still, but we pile the pillows around her. I took a few pictures after church last Sunday of her and Cade of course wanted in on that too. I know I am her mother, but I think she is getting pretty darn cute!
Cade can never smile with his eyes open...I don't get it?! He loves to be the big brother!
Enjoying the nice weather at the park!

Look how small Jenna is!

Well we better get out and enjoy the nice days while we have them!

Busy, busy!

This past week was pretty exciting/busy for us.
Jaime and Brody decided to come for a visit (YAY!) while her carpet got replaced. We had a lot of fun hanging out with them! Brody has already grown so much and they have only been gone a month! Jaime is such a good friend and sister. Good thing she is, because she witnessed and had to put up with all my absent-mindness (if that is a word) this week. One day I backed over my nice new double stoller and wrecked one of the wheels. I didn't realize that I did wreck it at the time and just threw it in the back of the Envoy. The next day Jaime and I decided to take the kids to the mall and go shopping. I pulled the double stroller out for Cade and Brody to share and realized that the tire was turned in and there was no way it would work. So, a long story short, we ended up renting those little car stroller things in the mall and I ended up carry Jenna the whole time and pushing Cade. In the end, I think it worked out better. The boys loved their rides and Jenna was so happy to be carried the whole time! Oh ya and that morning, before I picked Jaime up for shopping, I had the kids and strollers all ready in the car and I realized i locked my keys in the house! Ya, not the smartest thing I have ever done! I borrowed my neighbors phone and luckily my mom saved the day and had our spare key with her. She saves the day a lot!!
The kids had lots of bonding time and Cade loves "Brobro" (Cade language for Brody). They were waiting for the garbage truck. The 3 grandkids. Brody is always posing! Jenna looking a little cranky! She is 6 months old already!
Jesse's brother Trevor came home from his mission on Monday night. He served in Monterray (probably spelt it wrong!) Mexico mission. We were all so excited to see hime. He left when Cade was 3 months old, so it was like having a new uncle! Cade went to him right away and gave him a big hug. We went to the airport at 10pm and Cade was a little loopy, but he did well. We have been at the Flexhaug's almost every night this week hanging out and spending time with Trevor. All of the grandparent's came on the weekend and then Sunday Trevor spoke at church and did a great job! It is so amazing the hear his testimony and experiences. He is trying to teach Cade spanish. Between him and Diego, I'll never understand him!
Welcome home Elder Flexhaug!

The three boys all squished on the couch together. We were worried about the couch!

We had family pictures on Sunday after church. I downloaded the worst picture, but I don't have time to change it, so this is it! I have wonderful in-laws and we have a lot of fun together! I am blessed!

Besides that, not too much else going on. Jesse started school today, so we are starting our 10 weeks of being poor and on EI. It will be a long 10 weeks being stuck at home without a car, but hopefully that will mean I will get all of my projects done that I have been meaning to do. I am grateful for a hard working husband, school is not his first choice, but it means more money so we like that!! Jenna is going to FREAK out soon and Cade keeps coming out of my closet with random shoes on and Jesse's ties so I better get them under control!
