Just a Spoonful of Sugar.................

Yes, that is a picture of my butt. I hope no one is offended by this picture but it was too funny to resist. I had just finised working out today and I had my mp3 player tucked into the back of my shorts. Grey is totally fascinated with my little pink song maker so he had been messing around with it and I didn't think much of it. I also found it interesting that his toy of choice today was a little baggy of baby spoons he found in the drawer, but whatever makes him happy and keeps him occupied right? So I went to take off my mp3 player and much to my surprise, I found 3 little spoons tucked into the back of my shorts along side my mp3 player. I am not sure why he thought that looked like a good spot, but I guess he figured if my music player belonged back there why not some spoons?

California Sunshine

Here is the proud Momma Miranda, doesn't she look fantastic!!! We went shopping for new clothes and KT did her hair, so she is a new woman now.
KT and Claire at the pool.
So I have been having so much fun in California visiting my sis and snuggling this little guy. My boys have been @ Grandma Merrill's house, so I have been able to just focus on being Aunt Toni and it has been so much fun! (Although I am really starting to miss my little fellas!)

Of Course, more pics of my new little nephew Noah! He is so adroable right? Ethan just loves snuggleing him so much, the only down side is that he is cutting into my snuggle time!!!
Jessica and Ethan love this new little bro!
I had to put these pics in mostly to brag that it was 93 yesterday and we went swimming at the pool. Yes, I know, not only did I allow a pic of me to be taken in my suit but I am major prego! I know it is brave, but I just had to brag!!!!
Don't we love the Mary Anne look?

Love these Little Men!

Will and Grey were sick this week, just random fevers, nothing too crazy. They had a busy day and were so tired and a little sad because of their fevers. We were staying at Grandma Merrill's house and this is what I found when I went in to check on them. I love it, they are so nice to each other while they are sleeping!

Mother's day

So I had heard of these mini albums before and decided to try one out for mothers day and it turned out pretty cute so I wanted to share. I made this little acordian album to fit in an altoid mint tin. With each picture, was something that they love about mom, or grandma.(I have also seen them in the circle tins, but we were short on time and creativity) Then I just decorated the tin inside and out with scrapbook paper and put the acordian album inside with a ribbon tied around it.

My 2 Brand New Nephews!!!!!!

Noah Tate Gordon
May 4th, 1:43 pm, 9lbs 2oz (2 weeks early!)

Miranda grows them big and demanded to be induced on Sunday because she knew our little Noah was packing on the pounds. After she called the hospital and they gave her the OK to come in, she took a shower and her water promptly broke! Isn't he a cutie!! Don't worry little Noah, I will be there in 5 days to give you a snuggle, don't get too big!

Zack James Hansen

May 6th, 6:30 pm, Zack weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 11 oz!!!

The Zack attack was pushing his luck. Poor Katie was 4 days over her due date and finally got to be induced yesterday!! Congratulations guys, I can't wait to see you on Sunday!

Yet another craving, COOKIES!!!

So, I was blog hopping and found this cool recipe site (thanks to KT having so many friends and family links) Me being in my current state, couldn't resist and we made them this evening. At least the kido's reap the benefits of my frequent cravings. They were so good, after I put the kids to beds I am going to have a stack with a glass of milk!
Grey doesn't really love cookies so he takes a couple bites and passes them to me........lucky me

Will on the other hand just asked me for a third and I told him he would need to wait until tomorrow. I just glanced up and he and Grey had found a graham cracker somewhere......lucky boys, it is 10 minutes past their bedtime.
