My Mother's Day Gift

I  had been wanting a coffee table for so long, every one i liked was either way to much money or too big for our living room, Javier promised that he could make me a great table to match the sofa table i already had and loved. He came through on his promise and made me a gorgeous table, the color that i loved and distressed it so it looks so neat. It took him about two months just working on it at nights when he had time and it was so worth the wait! Thanks Javier, you continue to amaze me with your talents:)

A couple months ago, i helped throw a baby shower for my friend and neighbor Jess, i teamed up with her friend Natasha and we were able to come up with a cute little shower for her. She has two little girls already and is now having a boy! Jess is from Florida and is terribly homesick, she loves the ocean and beach so we figured that would be the perfect theme for a baby boy shower! Everything came together perfectly, it looked awesome and everyone enjoyed the shower. The food was great and the decor was so cute. Jess said she loved and appreciated the shower so thats what mattered the most!

 Natasha did the hummus and spinach dip with bread and pita

 Thats Jess' baby's ultrasound pic in a fun beachy frame

Love the sailboat toppers and the cupcake stand i borrowed from a friend:)

 I found instructions online to make sailboat cupcake toppers and they turned out perfectly. Then there is my Caprese Skewers with balsalmic drizzle (thats tomato, basil and mozzerella:)

I was able to find alot of decorations that went with the theme and i love how it turned out! Thats my fruit kebobs with fruit dip, my mini chinese chicken salads in wonton cups, and Natasha's Tortilla spirals, yum!

Pre-4th of July Sparklers and My First Garden!

The anticipation of waiting for the sparklers is killing him

It is so exciting when you see your garden actually growing something! My first jalepeno:)

Our little garden...if this works out well for us this year we will probably do a bigger one next year, it has been alot of fun so far!

Gavin's 4th Birthday

I cannot believe that my little boy is 4 years old! It seems like yesterday that i was pregnant and looking forward to the day when i could actually meet him. He is such a blessing in our lives and i couldn't imagine what life would be like without him. He is growing up to be such a sweet and bright boy. We look forward to the years to come but wish that time could slow down a little bit!

On Sunday, the 27th, we had Gavin's Birthday Party at "Idaho Falls Gymnastics Training Center", it was the perfect place to have all of Gavin's friends and family join in the celebration! We had pizza and cake, a spiderman pinata and lots of time to run and play on the trampolines and the foam pit! They had a blast!

While we were up at Hiese Hot Springs, we decided to go on up to Kelly Canyon to take a look. Gavin was mesmerized by the skiers and snowboarders going down the hill so fast. I think we will have to get him up there to try it out before all the snow is gone for the year!

I got up early to make a Birthday breakfast for the Birthday Boy before Preschool this morning. Eggs, sausage, and star and puppy pancakes made complete with candles to blow out after one more singing of "Happy Birthday" for the year:)

After Preschool we drove up to Hiese Hot Springs, had pizza for lunch next to the cozy fire and then played in the warm swimming pool for a couple hours. It was a great way to relax as a family and enjoy our little boy and his birthday.
