What's Goin' On

This time last year it was way rainy and yucky. We've had our thunderstorms the last week, but for the most part this spring has been sunny and lovely! 
The boys are loving being outside and roaming the big backyard.

This is the first time we've been able to let them off our deck to roam, and they are loving exploring. I think they like it better when Daddy is outside because they dig and pull weeds and that's more fun than chalk and bubbles apparently.

When did they become this big?!

Jack has 3 weeks left of Preschool! He loves going, so I know he will miss it over the summer but it will be nice to not work around the schedule for a few months!

Speaking of a few months......3 until Jack turns 5. I'm sorta flipping out about this one. 5 always sounded so big and so far off to me. It's like a milestone Birthday to me, like 10 and 16....5 just seems way old. 

He was interviewed for a "kid's focus day" at church and I didn't know about it. They played the video and I totally cried.

Teacher: "Jack, what is your favorite Bible story?"

Jack " I like David and the giant and Jonah and the Whale too"

Teacher: "Why do you like Jonah and the Whale?"

Jack: "Because he prayed and then listened to God even after he was naughty"

Teacher: "Jack, what is Heaven like?"

Jack: "Well, Heaven is like a home..."

Died. Right there. He's LISTENING!!!!! 

First time doing this and Jack was hitting them over the fence....STUD

The twins are so vocal and hold these insane conversations, and with each other and other people. It's crazy how much they talk.

They have the best manners and are always saying "bless you" when you sneeze. 

We have some fun months ahead!

I get to go away with a good friend next weekend to the coast for a few days. So looking forward to this little retreat!

At the end of the month Trevor and I are going to Disneyland WITHOUT the kids! WAHOO!

Starbucks Happy Hour
Happy 10 Year Anniversary to us!
We of course, aren't telling Jack until we get home haha. 

June brings a little trip to Portland with my Mom to do two Trades of Hope parties! I get to see my best friend, and hopefully eat where she is working! She just graduated top of her class in culinary school and will be working at a fabulous restaurant in downtown Portland. She's pretty amazing. 

Early morning snuggles with my Bear

A little ankle updation:
I am doing really well and have begun doing a run/walk program to rehab myself! Hoping to be running 3 miles 3x a week in 6 weeks. So far it's feeling great!
My ultimate goal is the Half-Marathon I signed up for in September!!!

Jack and his cousin Miles. How handsome are they!?

Meet Chloe. My sister and brother-in-law got a Doggy! YAY!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
