closer to 40...

happy, happy 3-6

birthday boy!
Shawn blowing out the candles.
note: There are no candles.

two I couldn't decide on,
one goofing off
and one,
just cute...

Here's to 36 more!

quick birthday story:
I was talking to Shawn about what he wanted for his birthday.
I know now, after 14 years, he likes me to get exactly what he asks for,
no deviations.
(I'm more of a thought-that-counts-pick-it-out-yourself-kinda gal
Him, not so much.)
I was telling him I can't pick out clothes for him.
He's too picky.
He replied:
If you can buy groceries and clothes at the same place,
I don't want it.
He is a clothes snob!
He just knows my love for Target.
I love you, babe.
Happy Birthday.

I just wanted to say

I want to post.
I really, really do.
I love reading all of your posts.
I really, really do.

Jensy cut her hair
and I must say-
it's cute.
She didn't hesitate
not one bit,
and it was loooong.
but it needed it.
The boys got their hair cut too!
and they are looking very school-ready!
I promise to post pics tomorrow.

Just so you know, we have been at cherry hill, or our friend's pool,
or soccer games, (yes soccer started right after baseball finished up.)
This surely explains my absense.

i'd say it's cute enough to get me back into sewing

and this overstuffed chair...
fitty bucks

i'm a happy girl.

For the 4th of July weekend,Landon had a tournament in Heber/Park City
called the "firecracker"
We decided to make it a camping trip with our friend's the Silverstein's!
Shawn's dad loaned us the fifth wheel again and they brought a 10-man tent!
We had a blast, even though the games were 4/0 :(
but he still played great!

So because Jensyn was so good about attending all the boys games
we had ourselves a plan brewing *insert evil laugh*
We were going to have a tea party and have the boys dress up and hold teddy bears,
and then we decided, even better,
we'll give them a makeover, daddy's included!
This was the highlight of Jensyn's summer!!

a few pics of the weekend...

daddy getting his makeover...

some neat hummingbirds...

check out this babydoll...

Land-0 getting his makeover...

three of the boys post-makeover...
they were such "GREAT SPORTS"
(lincoln threw a fit and hid the entire time,
I'm actually okay with that!)

I just came up for air
for a quick post!
This is one crazy/busy/fun summer!
