1 + 2 = 3!!

Here she is!! Miss Eden Rae Rose!! She was born early this morning at around 3:15 am. Weighs 6 lbs 12 oz and is 18 1/2 in long!
Here are the proud parents Les and Marie. Marie did this al natural (say it with a french accent). And me and Tracy hovered outside her door until we heard Eden cry, this experience also confirmed to me that I NEVER want to go al natural!! I guess that makes me not as hard core as I thought, but I don't care. Wahoo Marie!
The dream team with little Rae Ray!! Her middle name comes from her Grandma Rose and daddy!
Proud Pa

Brennen picked out this frog just for little Eden and wanted to give it to her. He was hesitant at first but when we left he cried for her, so funny

Every time I have driven down Wall there are always people taking pictures in front of this old building that has lots of garage doors on the front and Christy said she wanted to get some pictures of Bennett for his 2nd birthday. The last time I tried to get pictures my daughter faced planted it so we decided to give it a go. These were some of my favorites.

Being AWESOME is exhausting!

So we had a VERY busy weekend. Saturday we woke up and went down to Antelope Island to the Kite Festival. When we got there the kids all made their own kites. This is Ever flying hers. I seriously didn't even think she would get it or care but she colored hers and was the one who had the best time flying it. It was so windy! Good for kite flying bad for hair!

They had these races called, bull races and you attached a kite to your waist and had to run against the wind and whoever won got a kite. I totally lost to my sister-in-law Stephanie and she had bronchitis!! Either I'm pathetic or Stephanie is awesome... I think it's both

Brennen said he wanted to climb up this wall, so we got him all hooked up...

and this is as far as he got. He got scared so the nice guy pulled him up a little bit and spun him in circles. He was a happy guy.

I should have known he would have trouble, he was scratching his butt from the very beginning.

They also went for a horse ride, Brennen didn't want to until he saw Ever get on with Stephanie then I think he didn't want to be shown up, they loved it. My mother-in-law rocks she paid for everything, which is so nice because we wouldn't have been able to do all the stuff we did without her.

Now to my awesomeness!!
We decided to celebrate Brennen's birthday Labor Day weekend because this Friday (Brennen's birthday) we are going camping, and my dad is doing LotoJa! Brennen had picked the bug cupcakes a week before for his birthday and then Me and Christy decided to have a dino party but I still had to do the bugs, of course, so we made them for the Wilson side.
Exhibit A: Me hard at work!
Exhibit B: My hard work!
The finial project! I think they turned out pretty cute!
These mini cupcakes were for the girls, but Ever ate like 5 of them so she might as well have had a regular cupcake.
Brennen liked them too.
Exhibit C: Dinos!

I am quite proud of the turn out, I made them up myself.

My mom was also very busy making this Raptor watermelon that I found online!

Then I found this idea in a book of mine, you take Plaster of Paris, Vermiculite, and water and mix them in equal parts. Pour into a container and drop in your dinos and let it harden for 30 minutes. And the kids become regular paleontologists and have to dig them up. But me and Christy put a little twist on it and we made the boys search for their dino eggs (they were more cups because we used a cupcake tin...Meh) and then they got to dig them up. I know I know, we're AWESOME!!!

We also had a pinata. I don't think Brennen will ever like a party with lots of kids because he got to beat this dino to death and only had to take turns with Bennett.

My brother-in-law got this slide at a yard sale for only $20! The kids loved it!!

Brennen got so spoiled by my parents!! They bought these little boys presents like it was Christmas! I am tempted to hide half of them and give them at Christmas to save some money!! This was his big present, a scooter!! He has wanted one of these for a long time, well a long time in three year old terms!! Thanks 1 pa & dramma!!!

Hair, Accessories, & Photoshoots

So I discovered that the bottom of Ever's hair is quite long and so I put it in pigtails and she looked so cute for the five minutes she kept them in! Kurt keeps telling me to just leave her alone but if she would just get used to in now we wouldn't keep having the same old fight! I will prevail! She will be a cute girl with cute hair.

So we tried again with her cousin Josey, they of course loved their new dos

This is the adorable headband I made her and she had to play peek-a-boo in the closet. I am so sad it came out blurry because it was the cutest one!! She ripped this one out too and then proceeded to slobber all over it.

This is Ever's bling a.k.a my anklet and a pair of earrings! She walked around with both hands out all day to admire! What a girl!
And now Brennen's three favorite things. 1: No shirt, ever. 2. His swings, particulary going upside (please view below)And 3. The underdog, doesn't matter if the swings empty or not he'll give them, he also loves getting them!
My two rugrats!! Brennen turns 3 on the 11th so I thought we would go to the park and take some pictures for his b-day card and for the grandma's. These were my favorites, what do you think?

So GQ!

I was teasing him saying I would hit him in the face with this stick I had with leaves on it, this was his face.

I thought it would be cute if I could get a picture of him hanging from the monkey bars but they were to high up and I actually had to catch him seconds after this picture because he fell!
I got Ever all gussied up because I wanted a picture with the two of them. I literally got her out of the stroller and grabbed my camera and she fell headfirst into the sand box and did this to her face! It was so bad, I thought she got just a little sand on her face, oh no her whole face swelled up!! I say again, I can't believe she has lived this long!
But she still played and smile!! She's a scrapper!
