ellie found her favorite spot while jack was blowing out candles.
jack got a drill from grandma browne.
i think he likes it!
jack got a new shirt for his birthday that we picked out last night at bass pro shop. it has a shark and tuna on it. currently tuna are his favorite fish, but that could change by next week.
i stopped filming at the WrOnG time! i was quite upset with myself! but as you saw above, he did dive right into his cake...several times!
jack doesn't understand what an awesome present this is quite yet. my dad is relandscaping their yard right now and he has added three very large cement circular paths through out it. while he was laying the cement he thought it would make a great path for big wheels. my mom went to target this morning and bought a big wheel and when she got home my dad said "come and look at this". he took her out to the van and inside was a big wheel put together with jack's name in vinyl lettering on it. they figured they would keep the extra one because everrett will need one soon enough! in a few months, i dont think we will be able to keep jack off of this thing!
rikki and i have pretty similar taste. ok, very similar taste. she picked out the CUTEST outfit i have ever seen! it was a mr. messy shirt that goes over top a white thermal long-sleeve with navy blue cord pants. i LOVE it! oh, and jack does too!
bo larissa and everrett gave jack AND us a present! not only will jack have a BlAsT at kidzoo, but that means we get a little break too! kidzoo is a huge indoor park that has tons of different things to do. we've heard great things about it from friends in the ward and have checked it out online, it looks awesome! thanks guys!

i love doing crafts like this. mostly because they dont take much time but i feel like i accomplished something. that doesnt happen too much around here anymore with ellie being mobile and jack still a crazy man.

i warned you guys! pretty silly i am. so anywho. we canned twice over the past two weeks. the first week was really fun, because mom me and larissa worked together. this past time was fun...not really fun like the first week. mostly cause mom wasnt there. i was surprised that it wasnt lame like i always imagined it would be. who knew! we canned oats, wheat, rice, black beans, sugar, dry milk, apple slices, macaroni, potato flakes and spaghetti. i didnt personally purchase all of that stuff, but its nice to get started with our years supply.
ellie has started crawling. its not very smooth, but she can definitely get to where she wants to go. she is so fun to watch. usually she says "mamamamama" nonstop. and she is always grunting, which im sure is only funny to chris and me. i suppose that could be frightening to some. she loves jack so much. he lays down on the kitchen floor in the mornings and has me lay her down on his belly. they both laugh and wiggle around.
while at the baby shower we played a game where a present was passed around with many different layers of wrapping paper. each person would unwrap a layer and there was a note revealed giving the person some instruction. sometimes it was something nice like have some candy and pass to the next person. but sometimes it would give you a challenge. well, as luck would have it, i had a challenge where i had to race against sister clawson. this wasnt an ordinary race. we had to see who could drink the most orange juice from a baby bottle in one minute. im sure it was highly entertaining for all who was there! sister clawson was a good sport, that was the only reason why i went along with it.
