Carnival at the College

We went to a mini carnival over at the college this afternoon...needless to say it was HOT! HOT! HOT! I thought I was going to melt, but it was worth it because Jaxon had so much fun!
He loves bounce houses and when we first pulled up to the carnival he was trying to undo his car seat because he was so excited there was a bounce house!

Fun ride on the train!

The longest ride ever! I was getting sick just watching the kids go around and around, but Jaxon was all smiles. He kept giving high-5's to all the football players and he thought he was so big and tough!

Jake....21 things I luv!

Here are a few reasons why I love Jake SOOO much.
1. He works hard to take care of me and Jaxon.
2. He will usually do whatever I want...go to plays, twilight movies etc. even though most the time I can't decide what we should do and you still don't get too mad!
3. He loves when I get ready for the day, but really love me when my hair is down and I have no make-up on, and how much you compliment me ;)
4. When we were dating he bought me a ton of flowers...I would be at work and roses were delivered and the girls at the front desk quit looking to see who they were for because they knew they were for me...what girl doesnt love flowers delivered to her at work? I love that...
5. The first night I met you, you went outside and pulled some pansies out of a flower bed of a business in town, because you really wanted to get me flowers but all the flower shops were closed. (but maybe he was telling me I was a pansie!)LOL
6. How you can try ANYTHING and do exceptionally well...welding, framing, etc!
7. How when I first met you, you always wore Hanes white tee shirts that showed your muscles because of framing, Wranglers, and your work boots
8. Our first date you took me to ParrotHead for lunch and it's still one of our favorite places to eat!
9. You always know how to fix everything!
10. You will watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette with me, and secretly like it!
11. How you remember everything....and then tease me about things that happened years ago that I had forgotten about! (like when you were allergic to ice) LOL
12. I love that you call me a lot through-out the day just to check on us
13. For wanting me to be home with Jaxon, and not caring if we got anything done but just played all day!
14. He enjoys spending time with my family.
15. He and my dad get along great...that's always been one of the most important things for me!
16. For being everything I ever wanted...really even when we get frustrated with each other you still are respectful.
17. He has a way that calms me down when I'm with him, no matter where we are I always feel that I'm at home when we are together.
18. The way he hangs up my clothes when doing the laundry-even though he doesn't do it how I like, I love that he does it....and how he thinks it's dumb to hang out clothes, let them air dry, and then when I put them in the dryer to soften them...he thinks everything and anything can go in together regardless of color/material! I LOVE that!
19. How knowledgeable he is with the scriptures etc. and how he never gets frustrated when I ask a lot of questions! He is SO amazingly patient!
20. How you try to take care of me when I'm sick...turn on the bath for me get me drinks and check on me...even though that's when I'm the most onry you put up with me.
21. Realize that sometimes I enjoy being alone and you willingly take Jaxon and go do things boys do for a while so I can enjoy the peace and quiet!

Happy Anniversary!! I love you SO much, and it feels like we have been married for longer than we have been!! I'm so glad we found each other and I'm so grateful for all you do for us.

Sharpened Pencils

A few weeks ago I had to have a root canal and the dentist I went to has a drawing every month and guess what?! YES you guessed it, I WON! I was pretty excited...I told Jake that I felt like I won the lottery LOL! I won a backpack LOADED with school supplies! When I went to go pick up my winnings at the dentist office, the lady at the front desk and I were talking and she said "I bet your kids are going to be so excited!" I was thinking, I only have one baby and I was thinking forget the kids...I'M THE EXCITED ONE!!!! I love school on the movie "YOU'VE GOT MAIL" when Meg Ryan talks about loving fall, the smells, like freshly sharpened pencils...that is totally me! Guess you could say that I will be one excited mom for when my kids start school, not because they will be gone, but the smells of pencils, books, and projects! Although I've heard that even in kindergarten kids have a lot of homework YIKES! :)I think I deserved after the pain of a root canal!

Jaxie's Excited! So excited that he couldn't help from drawing all over his legs right before my VT ladies came! Fabulous! At least his shorts covered up most of it!

Blog Updates???

Can someone help me with how to add updates of when friends and family have updated their blogs, so you can seen when they last posted something on their blogs? I've tried looking on the internet in a few places but I don't know what it's called, or how to search for it! Thank you so much!

Stampin' Tools

I've been looking for some activities for Jaxon to do lately because I'm tired of him watching movies! If I let him he would watch movies all day long! Kids can always learn new things but I think he's at the "in between" age that he could be learning a lot of things, but yet he still is a little young to do some activites and remember them, but we have had a busy summer full of activities and I've tried to teach him about the animals we saw at the zoo and he knows all the noises they make! We have worked alot with counting and he once I start counting he can usually count to ten...if he wants he can be quite stubborn! He loves to color pictures and watercolor and he LOVES sticker books, so I was cleaning the other day and I came across a lot of stamps and found some that were perfect for! He has so much fun and was very proud of himself! I put the pictures on the fridge and he's been so excited and shows us what he did quite often! I'm loving this's probably been my favorite since he was born he has so much personality and he loves to learn!

He wanted to give his daddy a high-5! YAY!

Park Time with Jaxon

There are so many new parks in St. George-so many it seems like a lot of the smaller older parks arent as busy as the new ones so we usually try to go to the smaller ones because we usually have the park to ourselves! Luckily we had time to play and hang out at the park before it started to rain of the things I love about living here is the summer rain...even if it is humid once it quits raining! We also went skating around the park...another thing I love about this park is the trail around it and the volleyball court...Jaxon loves to play in the sand-I didn't get any pictures of that though! Jaxon seems a little bit young for this park but it's really one of my favorite parks!

First we skated around the park

He kept trying to squeeze his face through the holes! He is one silly boy!

I thought I changed this pic but after a few times I gave up! He loves to swing and make his mommy nervous but he didn't fall and he was having fun and no other kids were at the park!

Baby Brylie

Brylie Sackolwitz was born on July 31st! She is THE CUTEST baby girl! I forget how small babies are when they are first born. She has beautiful skin and dark hair! Her big sister Brooklyn is all ready a big helper!
