Not so crafty

I do not have the crafty hand for projects. Its something that I would like to develop a hobby for, it just takes time and money. Two things I am very particular with now. My friend Rachel is the craft queen and is very talented in that avenue. So we had a little craft day where she showed me how to make some cute onsies with ties, along with cheap frames from Ikea and jungle animals to go along with Connors room.

Love how easy these Tie shirts turned out and how super easy they were I have some cute gift Ideas now;)

The Animal frames where easy but only because they were done on a Cricut. something I would like to get in the future. They pretty much do all the work you pick the paper and design put the cartridge in pick the dimensions and let it do all the cutting.
Love my little projects! So excited to do more soon;)

I mentioned in a previous post that Connor always crawls around with a toy or dragging something along side of him. Well this is his new favorite thing to keep at his side

lately he has been crawling around with this stuffed Hershey kiss bag I got Gerret while were dating as one of his valentines gifts. I guess Connor is putting it to go use now;) glad we didn't get rid of it. He loves that kiss;)

Summer family fun!

Our family doesn't get together very often so when we do and can, we always have a good time together with lots of laughs. My brother and beautiful family came up from Houston and we were able to do some fun things while they were here. Its really nice to see all the cousins playing and the little ones playing too! We were able to have plenty of pool time, sprinkler parks and the Aquarium, and of course BBQ s and lots of food! Things tend to be centered around food in our family as I am sure its that way in most;) We went to the Aquarium that just opened called Sea Life in the Grapevine mills mall. It was fun a small place, but cool to see once every few years. When Connor gets older and can actually point to a fish and understand what it is, we can take him again. Here are some pictures of our fun week with the family in no particular order. Can I just say it is really hard to get a picture with all the kids together so the one I have was the best I could do. Something to work on for next time;

Better late then Never

I am really bad about blogging when stuff happens around here so I guess I am catching up. Gerret's birthday was may 5th which fell on a Wednesday so he was busy with work and young men's. We were still able to do a little celebrating with some friends, Texas hold em and cake! banana cake of course Gerrets favorite cake.
That weekend we went to a Rangers/ Yankee game with some awesome people at the ranger stadium. I had a surprise for Gerret that he didn't see coming. At the 7th inning stretch they do the birthday announcement on the big screen and he was one of them! He also got a bag of goodies with ranger gear and a hat! He was stoked about it. We had a great night and he enjoyed his present. He's not one to be the center of attention but, he certainly enjoyed it that day and he should!

Love this man SO much

4 th of July!

Hope everyone had a great and safe fourth this year. This is one of my favorite times of the year. the summer warmth being in the sun, barbequing, watermelon and family and friends. We started our day of at our ward breakfast at the park and had the Frisco Mayor speak to us, which was nice and played with Connor on the swings before it go to hot out. I was able to do some shopping for the little man. He is growing so fast, already in 18 month clothes. I was able to find some great sales;) super stoked about that!
We then headed over to my parents for a fun afternoon of pool splashing fun with Ethan and Ella. Connor is loving being in the water and drinking some of the water too;( The kid has probably had about 10 ounces of pool water so far this summer, Gross I know. We had a early BBQ with my parents and then just relaxed the rest of the evening.
It was a great and relaxing time with my family! I am so incredibly thankful to have the opportunity to do the things I enjoy with the people I love and none of that would be possible without the sacrifce those have made and continue to make for our amazing country. We honor and thank you for everything you have done!
Happy Fourth of July!

Our little family!
