Matchy Matchy

I usually roll my eyes when I see moms dress all their boys alike. You can get away with it for little girls but something feels a little "Von Trapp"ish about matching boys. Today, however, I broke the rules. Jay wanted to wear his "BSU" colored polo and I couldn't resist letting Ty wear his too. Well, call me Maria because this is just too cute!  

Ty is so sweet to share his finger with Jay!
Seriously, I might just dress them the same for the rest of their lives. Say goodbye to your social life boys!

Oh, I could eat them!

Now I'm off to find some curtains!

(In case you are confused about the curtains... don't worry, I often have to explain my humor to Joe as well. Finding curtains was my clever way of bringing home the "Sound of Music" theme. It's okay if you didn't get it. Don't be embarrassed. Watch the movie.)

A Very Happy Half-Birthday

Ty turned .5 a few days ago! 

That went so fast. He's such a sweet boy and we just adore him! 
I can't wait for all the fun things that we get to do as he gets older. I'm going to have to start baby-proofing the house again soon!

Goodbye Truck

 The time has come... Joe sold his truck.
It was a sad day. Joe has had this truck since before we met... he's had it since he "accidentally" bought it on ebay after his mission actually. 

Lots of memories in this truck. On our first date, we threw our bikes in the back to go riding, followed by driving up in the hills surrounding Boise and talking about our life goals. We later drove this truck to Southern Utah where Joe proposed in Zion National Park. This is also the truck where I chewed Joe out before we started dating and then he wouldn't talk to me for months!

And more recently, this is the truck that Jay loved to work with his Dad in. This is the night he said goodbye!
Hopefully it will be a place of memories for the next owner too! Bye, old friend.

Bend It Like Brady

 You would think that since I played soccer all growing up that I would have taken Jay out to play before now. But I realized a few weeks ago that I NEVER have. What is wrong with me?! So I bought him a ball last week and finally the weather was perfect today.

He's a natural!

We had a lot of fun. I hope he likes soccer because it is the one sport that I might influence/pressure/force him to play!

Joe thinks soccer is a girls' sport. Too bad I'm the one that's home with him all day. Darn it.

 He's gonna be good. I can tell.

Sorry Joe.
