My little basketball player...

video

Gavin played basketball tonight while he was watching the Bulls game with his Dad. He actually made a basket! I was so proud:) He gets so excited when he sees sports on TV, he jumps and runs around and tries to immitate the players, its very funny. He gets it from watching his dad and two uncles watch sports.

Happy 28th to me!







Well, the 23rd of April was my 28th Birthday!!!!! I had a great day just spent with family. I woke up to Javier holding a breakfast in bed tray with a dozen roses and cheesecake...yes...at 7 in the morning and two very sweet bday cards from my son and hubby. I made a nice breakfast of "Eggs Benedict" for us and then we headed to the mall so i could pick out my present (better that way), so i got some summer clothes that i needed. I went to lunch with my Mom and Grandma and then later to dinner with Javier. It was a nice birthday...i am only two years from thirty now and that kinda freaks me out.

Easter Day

We had a great Easter Sunday...we started by going to church in the morning and had my family and Javier's family over for a bbq. We hid eggs in the backyard for the two boys, it was a blast to watch them hunt for the eggs and enjoy the treats that were inside. The weather was beautiful, we couldn't have asked for a better day to celebrate Jesus' death and resurection.
It was impossible to get these two to smile at the same time!

Gavin with his first Easter Basket

I had fun putting his little basket together, then i realized i was more excited about it than he was, oh well. I have to remind myself that he's only two:)


He got pretty excited when he found the eggs we hid around the back yard.



Hugging cousins

It has been a long time since we got a picture of Blake, myself and our kids.

Spider Web Eggs

I was looking online this morning for some ideas on coloring Easter Egss and i came across this really neat method of dying eggs AFTER you gently crack the shell. After you let the eggs soak and peel the colored shells you get amazingly beautiful eggs that looked like they are covered in colorful spider webs. I had to try it and I was amazed...Gavin thought they were pretty delicious too!
A little snack for Gavin.
The blue egg

Aren't they pretty neat? I let mine soak for about 2 hours but i am assuming they would be darker if you let them go longer.


The shells were just as pretty as the eggs themselves.
So tonight we will be having some pretty colorful deviled eggs for dinner.

Last Saturday night Javier took Gavin to the Monster Truck Show in Pocatello...Gavin loved it and it was a great "Father-Son" Outing for the two of them.

Working on a Bilingual baby...

video

I am happy that Gavin is learning both Languages, when he is at Grandma and Grandpa's house they speak to him mostly in Spanish and we (well mostly Javier:) try to work on counting and names of body parts and things like that at home. He is doing really well for just turning two years old.

Addicted to Vegetables...the Cartoon kind.

Veggie Tales are Christian based cartoon characters, they are cute little vegetables...they teach children about morals and Bible teachings in a fun and entertaining way. My dad and Susan sent Gavin this one for Christmas and He is completely in love with the Veggie Tales now. I guess if he is going to be addicted to a cartoon, this is a good one!
