Lots of updates!!

I have the BEST husband ever!! Not only has he never ever said to me "You've been home all day, what do you do all day long," he also knows how tough a job motherhood is. He tells me all the time that he isn't man enough to be a mom. So when I told him that I needed a break, he took Lauren up to the Mountians on a hike. (Evan was taking a nap). So not only did I get to have some alone time to recharge, Chad got some alone time with Lauren. They had so much fun.

Isn't she the cutest little girl!! Even with dirt on her face!

The first thing she said to me when she walked in the door was "Mommy, I got a flower for you!!" Chad said she carried that little purple flower around everywhere and wouldn't even let Chad hold it for her. She is so sweet.

Ok, so I am still not done bragging about Chad. (I love him so much. I dare someone to show me a better husband!) Anyway, about a year ago, my dad knocked down a wall for me between my kitchen and the family room. I love having my whole house opened up. I love that from one of the corners in the family room, you can see almost every room on the first floor. But what I don't love is the gapping whole in the ceiling that was left behind. Enter "Super-Chad!" He fixed it this weekend. Well, almost fixed it. It just needs to be sanded down and puttied and painted. But the whole is covered up. I love you Chad.

But, oh no, he wan't done being handy. His mom's window in her car was stuck. She couldn't roll it up. So Chad comes to the rescue yet again. What a man, eh.

Lauren got a hold of the camera and took a picture of her feet. Silly girl! Look at those cute little piggies.

Ok, so I know that this is a long one, but I am almost done! On to my other little man-Evan. He got his very first haircut! It was a spontanious decision or ealse we would have brought the camera. We were at the mall to get Chad's hair cut and when he was done I decided that Evan needed one too. And he looks adorable! I have never had a "baby's first haircut" moment since Lauren has never had her haircut. I actually cried. I can't believe I got emotional about it. But he does look like such a cute little man, don't cha think?
This is Evan before.

And these are after! This one is without me doing it. (We gave him a baby mohawk!)

This is the one with his hair all done up.

And here it is from the side. Don't I have a cute little guy.

Cute little mohawk! Thanks for your phone call - we're doing much better here and getting in to the swing of things again with my niece at home. I've got time next week - do you think its too cool to meet at the park like we planned? Maybe Mon or Tues morning? We should call Keri and Sherri too because I think they live close to you. Talk to you soon!

Sound like you have a GREAT husband. It has to make you feel like you are the luckiest girl in the world. Your kids are darling, don't you just love the unconditional love that you receive from them.
