A picture is worth a thousand words.

This picture to me says a million things...
Ashton teaching Weston
Weston listening contently
2 brothers lost in conversation
Best friends silently saying I love you

Adding to Ashtons birthday

Blowing out the candles-he did such a great job!

He liked his cupcakes, but the frosting was his favorite!

These are his Lightning Mcqueen shoes.

Opening some gifts

Running around saying "vroom,vroom" and sliding his feet along

With his build a bear puppy. Of course he chose a football uniform for his outfit.

Brothers in the car. Ashton loves sharing his toys.

Hooray, Ashton is 2!!

This little cutie turned 2 today. It was an extra special birthday for him, because Tommy has been away on business the last 5 days, and he got home today!! Ashton enjoyed a nice birthday breakfast on his new Mcqueen dishes. I made some yummy cars cupcakes and he helped me decorate/lick the frosting!!
Ashton has been such a great addition to our family. He already is a good example to Weston, and teaches him everyday. He is so smart, and thoughtful. And he is just so dang handsome!!!
Happy Birthday Ashty bear!! We love you!

New cut for V-day!

I was very lucky to have Tommy volunteer to stay home last Friday so that I could get my hair done. It was one of many Valentines gifts that he gave to me. Misty, thank you so much for giving me such a fun cut. I love it.
We had such a fun weekend with our good friends Josh and Beki. I'm so glad that they could come and stay with us. I will post more about our time with them tomorrow.

I love my boys!

Ashton was so excited about his new shoes he didn't take them off for days. Weston loves giving kisses (as you can see). I love my boys! Can I freeze time? They are growing sooo fast!

The difference between...

An almost 2 year old's thoughts of coming home from the park and...

Tag...25 random things about me.

I actually got tagged on facebook, but I would rather jot these down here.

1. I love to read. Especially while on the elliptical. Watching t.v. or listening to music never gets me in the "zone" when working out. But give me a good book and BAM, I'm off and running.

2. I hate being pregnant. I just don't feel like myself, and hate being sick so much. I would love a ton of kids (ok not more than 3 or 4) but being pregnant kind of makes me good with 2.

3. I am a calorie counter. Not a meal/snack/dessert goes uncounted. I won't eat things if they seem "too high" or if I've already felt like I've had my calorie quota. If I do splurge on calories I work out until I feel better. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE food, and desserts. It's not that I won't eat things, I'm just really careful about making sure I don't overdo it.

4. I love jeans. I have so many pairs of them and can't get enough. I have a wonderful husband who supports my obsession and never asks why I need another pair. I like shoes too, but jeans are definitely my fave.

5. I love being in Young Womens. I think it's the perfect calling for me and I am sad to move and get released. Everything from the girls, to the leaders, to the activities is so amazing.

6. I get migraines. My dad gets them and I'm sure they are genetic. My eyes start to go funny and I know if I don't get medicine in me right away, I'm doomed.

7. I played basketball and tennis in high school and was good. I would love to get into a league-I'll have to look into that.

8. I am usually always the youngest adult in every situation. Church, Tommys work functions, Play groups etc.

9. My biological Mom passed away when I was about 14 months old. I am very open about her, and what happened so if your curious just ask (me in person).

10. I used to be a great snowboarder. I say used to because it's been a few years since I've even tried. Being pregnant and having kids so close together has made winter activities non-existent. I WILL (or hope to) get back into it. I'm sure with Tommy, and our 2 little boys I will be
"forced" :) to try again.

11. I love, love, love Dr. Pepper. Especially from Sonic. I don't know if it's the ice or what, but there's nothing like sipping some cold "juice" (as Ashton calls it. No he doesn't drink it) through a straw.

12. I am so interested in forensics. Anything from pathology to science, detective work to crime scenes. I can't get enough. I usually have things figured out before the show ends. My new favorite channel is I.D. (Investigative Discovery).

13. Can't get enough of Good Morning America and Diane Sawyer. I think she is an amazing reporter, and I would love to meet her someday.

14. I really enjoy reading Sports Illustrated, Popular Science and Business Week. They are magazines that Tommy gets in the mail, but I find myself reading them cover to cover sometimes. I also enjoy a good Glamour or People, but seriously not as much.

15. I really like having people over, or going out in big groups. When Tommy and I didn't have kids we were always organizing dinners, or parties with friends but now it's just every now and then.

16. I am a closeted scared flyer. I get really nervous the night before I fly and barely sleep. I don't panic or cry or can't cope but I truly get scared. Tommy wants to take private lessons but it scares me too much.

17. I have been repelling and bungee jumping. I would love to go sky diving. Maybe for my 25th birthday!

18. My favorite time of day is whatever time Tommy comes home from work. I don't always show it, but I look forward to this time all day long. Theres nothing like relaxing in our comfortable house together watching shows, eating something yummy while the kids play in the background.

19. I can't sleep in. I've always been a morning person. Even when Tommy takes the kids down and lets me attempt to sleep in I can't.

20. I can sing. I've sung in church, school, family events etc. I don't like doing it though. I get really really really nervous. Don't get any ideas... I'll just stick to my American Idol Wii game thank you very much :)

21. Ever since the day we got married, Tommy and I have slept under different blankets. I have to have a down comforter and he uses a really light blanket.

22. I hate talking on the phone. I would much rather email or text!

23. I have the worst sense of direction. Tommy can look at a map once and get anywhere, but I have to mapquest everything. Even if it's close.

24. I bite my nails. Always have, probably always will.

25. When my kids aren't in the car I love to blast the music. A good song always puts me in a good mood, and I love listening to it loud.

Well there you have it. 25 random things about me. Now I tag anyone and everyone! Try it, it's fun!

EXACTLY the same age!

Weston at 6 months, 1 week and 6 days

Ashton at 6 months and 2 weeks

I found this shirt in a box of Asthons old clothes and put it on Weston this morning. Then I thought it would be cool to take a picture of Weston in it, and compare it to when Ashton wore it. Little did I know that the they are EXACTLY the same age in these photos (only 1 day off).
