A good time!

The other day hunter grabbed a blanket, his books and asked for a bottle and this is what he chose to do! Hunter loves that combo and having Pappy with him makes his reading-relaxing time so much funner!

I love his smile!

Hair Stylist!

Hunter was being oh so quiet and when I found him downstairs he had emptied Ryan's hair spray bottle and hair wax was all over his face and head. But if you can tell he did a pretty good job at doing his hair.

Reflection on 2 years

I could not believe how much I teared up looking through all these old pictures! I have so many blessings in my life and one of them is HUNTER! How cute he is at all ages! These were him at 1 day old!

Hunter is 1 and YES that is a TOOTH!!!! It was his first and I miss how cute that was!

I have a 2 year old! This is him giving thumbs up!!!!

Hunter is 2

I feel so blessed in my life to have such a sweet little boy! Hunter is a fun little guy and sure makes every moment very interesting and fun! He has a sense of humor, he knows what he wants and he is all BOY. He loves anything with wheels on it and can tell you what each one of them are. He even corrects me when it comes to machines on wheels. He loves water and playing with his cousins. I look back at the time I was pregnant with him and the many many months (6.5) on bed-rest and I am grateful everyday for a safe arrival of this "not so little boy" that is now in our lives.

Riverdale was so much fun yesterday and the only thing that could have made the day perfect would have been if my family could have been there. Hunter had so much fun playing with his cousins, opening presents and "EXCAVATING".... NOT EATING his cake!!!! See pics below to understand. Thanks so much for the presents and the fun day at the water park.

This is hunter giving us THUMBS UP!!!! I love how he does that and am just glad he uses that finger and not a different one.

His cake before EXCAVATION

I don't think he had fun at all~!!!!!

Excavating not eating the cake! Such a hunter thing I think.

Hunter loved all of his presents and look I even got something I wanted for my birday! That was such a surprise but I am so excited to use it.

Girls Camp 2009

I just love my new calling! I get to work with some of the funnest girls ever!!!! This past week was girls camp and I had so much fun for the 2 days I got to be there. I so wish I could have spent all week and every night with them but we enjoyed the times we did have! Hunter got to go with me on my second day up there and I was so surprised at how much fun he had with the girls. More great times to remember!!!

So yesterday it was so funny because hunter told me he was hot and so I said lets make a puddle for you to splash around in. As I turned on the hose and turned back around he was already undressed laying the the cement. OK THEN!!!! It was sure funny and he had so much fun.

My little helper with watering everything in our yard.

What a silly boy we have! He wanted to color and I gave him his book that has stickers in it as well. This is what he did with ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!

Our projects

These are the projects Ryan and I have done in the past few months.
My only regret is that I didn't take any pic's of what these ones all looked like beforehand. But let me just say, Ryan and I love doing this kind of stuff and still have many more projects planned. Infact, just today I finished my mothers old makeup cabinet that needed a little update.

This was in someones throw away pile in portland! Lucky for us it was in great shape!

If you can imagine, this was red and white before I started.

This was in such bad shape and needed to be re-finished just so we could look at it. This was my Grandma Kerr's and I got it when she passed. It is so pretty now.

When we lived in Portland this was free on the side of the road. I loved the knobs so I knew it had potential.

this cabinet was in my house growing up and I kept trying to get rid of it cuz it was in such bad shape. This is what we did to it!

This is my Grandma Kepler's table that I inherited when she passed and we had fun re-doing it. The chairs still need finishing!

In pieces and a redo is needed for sure!

All done

Our little artist

This is a totally new thing around our house. He actually does not color on walls, or anything bad, JUST HIMSELF!!!!! He gets so mad at me when I clean him off though!!!!! This is definitely not the first time I have found him with a marker and oddly enough it is always the color blue.

French Doors

I swear they had like 10 coats of WHITE paint on before we even started. I am just sad I never got a picture of what we actually started with.

This was after us stripping all the white paint off.

Half way there

I love the hardwear

Almost ready to be in the house
