Nursery doesn't scare me!

It seems that these days with being the Nursery Leader I tend to go up and down when my desires to have kids. I think that the reason wards put the young marrieds with NO kids in nursery is a means to warn them what they will be getting themselves into. I have come to realize though that I will most likely never have 9 3year olds at any one give time in my house (except for maybe a birthday party or two but parents will be there then). So, their little trick isn't working very good on me anymore!

So until we are ready for our own kids.. these two little cuties are welcome in our home anytime!

We love when the Belo kids come to play. Addie likes to walk in and go right to the closet where we keep the toys. There aren't many for her to play with so we are always coming up with other ways to keep ourselves entertained. This last weekend it was playing on me like I was a jungle gym. I don't mind it, it's good exercise, right?

Thanks Katie and Steve for giving us a baby fix once and a while! We love it... and your kids!

Love is in the Air...

I have been getting some flack that 1) we rarely update our blog and 2) there are rarely pictures of us...more of the places we've been without proof that we really were there. The main reason for that is not because Todd doesn't like pictures but I am a typical girl and hate pictures of myself so I never take them. I am working on it. I will try to take more pictures of us and the few adventures we go on.
Having said that, here is a picture of us at Natalie's wedding last December.
What a beautiful day it was!

Do you remember my last post when I showed you this cute project I had ahead?
Here is what it turned into! Todd helped me sand it and we both took turns putting layers of paint on it. Just don't look too close. The pait we got when we painted our bar stools was too dark of red and this was more of a pink color. Maybe next project I'll mix the 2 paints together and I can finally get the right shade of RED!

Overall, I think it turned out pretty cute. My parents got us that light behind it for Valentines Day. I had seen it at the store with my mom a while back and she went and snatched it for me. Thanks MOM and DAD! I love it! (Todd does too, he just doesn't get as excited about lights as I do<3)

I also made our valentines for our friends this year. I think they turned out pretty cute. I found on some website someone who had used candy canes for hearts on cards. I went over to Wal-Mart and guess what, they still had some and for a crazy $0.17 a box! That was the best bargain ever! I loved how they turned out.

Hopefully if I ever get my own classroom someday I can do this project with students. I can't beat the price and they turned out adorable!
And since it is almost Valentines Day I figured I would just make sure you all know how fabulous my husband is. He is truely the most amazing man I have ever known. He has been my friend since I was 12 and my best friend since I was 17! I am so fortunate to be able to spend eternity with him. Such a lucky girl!!!
