Got my new frames yesterday, I really like them!

past week

I have a gate blocking the door into my craft room so that the kids don't come in and get all my stuff. Kardyn's favorite thing to do when I'm in there is to get a book and stand on it and peer over.
so cute
She loves anything that Chase does, so her new favorite toys are Army Guys. She also continually asks me everyday "where's Daddy?" and when I reply, at work, she says "why?" what 19 month old kid asks WHY?

I can't believe how big these two are getting! PS-she normally doesn't run around wearing her hood, but I haven't fixed her hair yet so I just threw it on so you can't see her wild and crazy hair.

Jackson came over last weekend, they were watching Thomas the Train while we played games.
Not much has been going on around here, but we are keeping busy. Aside from Tim's new calling as a Sunday School Teacher, and mine was Ward Activities Director {ugg} we are trying to finish our talks for Sacrament Meeting this Sunday {double ugg} and Tim is enrolled to start school next month. That should mix things up around here a lot, his work schedule is already 4- 10 hour days and recently he's been working on Friday's as well. The kids are busy, Chase LOVES going to school 2 days a week and I can not believe how much Kardyn is talking! She can pretty much tell me when she needs anything and I can understand her, which is crazy! Chase is starting to say the funniest things, and he's super observant. The other day we were in Wendy's and he heard the music playing on the radio, and he said to me, "Mom, is this Kings of Leon?" (a music band) he was right...what can I say, the kid loves music. He often asks me "if this song is in our I-pot (which means I-Pod) when he hears a song somewhere other than in our car. And the other day he was upset at me and told me that I was on the naughty list! Which is funny b/c he used to tell Karydn that around Christmas. They both continue to keep me busy!

This post is going to be a whole bunch of random things, but it's easier than making five different posts! I've been busy making things again....what else is new. These are for Kardyn's room. I'm also working on something else, but it's not completed yet, so I'll take some pictures when those are done.
This is my Valentine's Day's a little time consuming, but SUPER easy and I'm in love with it! I think I'm going to make something with this same technique for Kardyn's room too!
If you want to learn how, go HERE
I also need some help. I have this pretty cool old bottle, but don't really know what to do with it. It's kinda hard to put stuff in because of the small neck. I need some ideas! What can I do!

Katie (my friend from OR) came to Utah for a visit and took some time out to see me. We had fun, chatting and shopping. I'm glad we got to hang out, I MISS YOU!!
I've also been baking, if you haven't already, my recipe blog has this already listed. It's french peasant bread and goes great with pretty much anything!
Oh and one more thing...I finally finished my first blog book. Only took me 3 years, but oh well! I'm so excited! I've decided to do one for every year blogged, and this was my first year, 2007. So, now I just need some time to catch up! That and I'm getting ready to start Kardyn's actual scrapbook, which I'm very excited about, so that should be fun!
