My Everyday - Feb 27

Today was a fun day.. first off Happy Half birthday to Owen! YAY 6 months.
We also flew to Houston today to visit Mama and Papa Nelson. Jaxon had flown before but not that he remembered and Owen had never flown.
Here is Jaxon with his new headphones. He did great!

Here is Daddy and Owen. Tim was only allowed to hold Owen for a few minutes because the extra oxygen mask was on my side.

When we got to Houston we had the best seafood I have ever had. I also got to cross something off my list of things to do before I die... Eat Alligator. Its soooooooo good! Im hooked. Now I need to find a good place in calgary to get it!

My Everyday - Feb 26

Despite being a stress filled day it was also a really fun day. We spent the morning playing at the Smith's house so that Jaxon could get his Elizabeth and Sammy fix before we head to Houston. He is really going to miss his little partners in crime! Then it was a busy afternoon packing and then the Elders come over and  was finally able to sign up to feed them next month! YAY! I miss feeding the Elders! So now I am fighting a major stress induced miagraine and really need to sleep. We leave bright and early tomorrow morning... here's hoping and praying the boys handle the flight well!

My Everyday - Feb 25

So today was a long day. Jaxon was just a little grumpy which makes days long. Owen was happy though. Jaxon didnt want me to play with him today so I got more scrapbooking done. I was all excited because Im finally getting caught up but we leave on Saturday to go to Houston so there is more scrapbooking to come!
This is a picture from last May... Jaxon is Thomas. For the last few days Jaxon has been telling me that Thomas isnt too busy to stop by and give him a ride. I wanted to take him to Day out with Thomas again this year but Tim said "No we will do it next year" So this is my way of telling him we want to go this year

My Everyday - Feb 24

Today was a pretty good day. We went to Gymboree this morning and then we played play doh and colored and played puzzles and cars. Jaxon had three accidents today so he wasnt allowed on the computer or wii or watch spongebob so we had to think of other things to entertain ourselves. It was also a good day because I got time to be crafty... I did two scrapbook pages and made 4 cards. It was pretty fun.
This pics are a couple of weeks old but I love them and wanted to post them. It must be tough being little. Owen is such a trooper. Sometimes I get so caught up entertaining Jaxon and then I look over and Owen has put himself to sleep. What a sweetheart!

I love having two boys! They are already best buddies. Jaxon loves playing with Owen and Owen loves playing with Jaxon! Today I caught Jaxon telling Owen, "you are my best friend!" Melts my heart!

So Owen is getting so big now. In the last week he has started crawling. He isnt a pro yet but he sure moves and he moves fast! I am in trouble. He is a mover just like Jaxon! But at least chasing after my two boys should get me into tip top shape!

My Everyday - Feb 20

Yesterday was a great day. Jaxon had his friends Elizabeth and Sammy over in the morning. Its so great to have them over because even though it doubles the amount of kids I currently have, Jaxon is much happier to have someone to play with. And its really cool to see him actually play with kids... not just next to them. This is a picture of them at snack time watching Cars. Days are always better when friends are over.

Today was an ok day. Autie Debbie was in last night so it was nice to hang out with her this morning. Then it was just a laid back afternoon and then Tim's family come over to help him celebrate his birthday.

Ok... so I know its been a few days since I posted... what can I say... Im a mother of two crazy boys!
Anyways... I got some time to scrapbook today and I did the pictures from our trip to Drumheller. So I thought Id put up those pictures. Jaxon wasn't thrilled with the Museum but it was still a fun day.

My Everyday - Feb 15

Missed another day... This time I blame it on a puking kid. We spent the weekend in Cranbrook Visiting Grandma Shelva, Grandpa Ray, Gt Grandma Coulson, Larry and of course Sadie. It was really nice showing off the boys to everyone. How can you not love my boys?!?! But Jaxon got sick on Sunday night. It was a rough night and no one got much sleep. So we are all sorta sick and tired today. But Jaxon seems to be doing much better so hopefully he has a good night and is back to normal tomorrow.
I know this isnt the most recent pic of Jaxon but it makes me smile!

My Everyday - Feb 13

Ah... Valentines Day eve... I told tim yesterday that I have always just pretended to hate Valentines day and he was shocked. I told him I did it for him since I knew he wouldnt be into getting me anything romantic and I didnt want him to feel bad.
  so here we are in Cranbook visiting Grandma and Grandpa Seguin. The boys are having lots of fun and Grandma and Grandpa are having lots of fun getting reaquainted with the boys. I think the highlight for both Owen and Jaxon is the puppy Sadie. The highlight for me is the relaxing and the chocolate pudding pie!

My Everyday - Feb 12

Today was a fun day. I love fridays to begin with but Fridays before long weekends are even better! Plus I had an added bonus today... I have Makaelyn Miller come over and 'babysit' Jaxon so I could work on some projects! She did great keeping him entertained so I could finally get his and Owen's journals up to date. Now I realize I need to be better on keeping them up to date and recording important events. Well Im exhausted so Im off to bed.

Hooray for Survivor! It looks great! All I can say is What happens to Boston Rob!?? Who do I want to win... ummm... James... JT... or Russell... in that order... Lets see. Hope I didnt Jinx it!
Kris came over for dinner today. Jaxon will be sad that he missed him. He loves his Uncle Kris so much... but feel asleep literally seconds before Kris come in the door and once Jaxon decides to sleep there is now waking him! But at least I had a nice visit!

So... I totally wanted to post yesterday... but by the time I got home from a totally awesome stamp club tim had already turned off the computer... grrrrr.... it was only 11pm! LOL! So yeah... Ive joined another stamp club tim says he is happy but I doubt he thinks I need more stamps!
Tonight I also went out... I know busy busy... I went with Leah and Stef to a line dancing class... boy oh boy do I owe them one now! We show up and everyone is like 70 yrs old! ok maybe not that old but definately older then my parents! the best part was that they still kicked my butt!!!!
Tim was at home with the boys and he played wii with Jaxon. Jaxon loves the wii! Tim said he started crying and looked at him and said... Im crying because Im tired! Poor guy! I need to be better about a bedtime routine.

My Everyday - Feb 8

Today was a good day! We had gymboree in the morning and I just made that my work out. Owen was awake so I put Owen in his sling and I tell you running after Jaxon is tiring to begin with... just try it with an extra 16 lbs strapped to you!
While Jaxon was in the Tub Tim had some fun posing Owen. After several attempts this is the shot he got... I think its pretty cute.

My Everyday - Feb 6

Both my kids have been spit up Champions! People tell me its because I formula feed them. I got used to it with Jaxon but Owen has added a whole new dimension to it... He tends to spit up as he is trying to crawl.. I guess its the pressure on his belly... anyways... he then face plants right into it... so much of my everyday is spent cleaning him up... the joys of motherhood are many!

My Everyday - Feb 4

Today was a pretty low key day... which was nice. Jaxon slept through the night last night... which was great! He never sleeps through the night!
We have discovered a new game with Owen. He loves to play peak a boo! He will sit in his chair... pull his blanket up and then wait for someone to say "Where's Owen?" Then he pulls the blanket down and grins at you. He loves it. I just want to know when he got old enough to play!

Today was a pretty dull day at our house... but that was ok since both me and Jaxon are a little sick. Just a cold thankfully! But today I made new cookies... and I made up the recipe myself... They are Butterscotch Pistachio Cookies... so yummy!
Here is the recipe
Cream together 2/3 Cups butter with 2/3 Cups Brown sugar and 2/3 Cups white sugar. Beat in 2 Eggs, 2 Tbsp Corn Syrup and 2 tsp Vanilla. Add 2 Cups Flour and 1 tsp Baking Powder Mix until combined. Stir in 1 cup chopped Pistachios and 1 cup Butterscotch chips and 1 Cup Oats. Spoon onto cookie sheet and Bake until golden brown at 350 degrees... takes my oven about 12 minutes.

My Everyday - Feb 2 part 2

So I was just looking through the pics on the camera and I saw a ton of pics that Jaxon must have taken while he was playing on the computer. Here is his afternoon snack... yummy red apple!

This is he loves to play on this site!

This one he didn't take. Tonight he fell and smashed his face on my hope chest. He sure is a tough kid though. Only cried a little. But he still wanted a band aid... Band aids fix everything!

My Everyday - Feb 2 part 1

Today was a rough day... I am really fighing a cold and Im afraid I might be losing, plus Jaxon is all stuffed up so he didnt sleep good at all which means I didn't sleep well either since I was in bed with him... but that means Tim slept great since he had the whole bed to himself... again. Jaxon had a few accidents on the potty front today but I guess that was bound to happen. So I have been trying to think of what to teach Jaxon next since he knows all the letters and how to spell his name and how to count to 14...I have decided I wan to teach him the provinces.. so Im looking for a puzzle of Canada where the pieces are the provinces and I want to teach him food groups... so I wasnt to get a shelf like this (But less girly.. but not boyish since we are hoping for a girl at some point!) and then we can sort his play food in it. So now Im on the hunt...
I am also frantically trying to get Jaxon's bday party organized... really I just need to get the invites ready so I know I have that out of the way!
Jaxon mailed his Valentines today. He was pretty thrilled. Now he is hoping to get some in the mail soon! He loves mail!

Anyways... since Im on Tims laptop I dont have my regular pics... but I was snooping at his pics and I found this one that is classic Jaxon. I sure love this guy!
