its a jungle out there

if you are thinking this is florida, you are wrong.
this is arizona.
my backyard, to be exact.
its pretty unbelievable, but true.
i think we have had more rain this month than the entire previous decade.
so, thanks to this unexpected gift, the grass in our backyard is thick and luscious.
and green.

happy day!

a valentinish birthday

jason has officially left the 20's and is venturing into the 30's!
it's kinda weird to think he is 30 now but he is.
so, for his birthday, i made him 30 cinnamon rolls.
ava helped.
eden did a little bit too. she helped me by playing in her favorite kitchen drawer.
she loves to throw everything out and then sit in it.
but it can occupy her for a long time cause she will do it over and over again.

in the middle of our cinnamon roll baking, i got a special delivery.
(a.k.a. jack getting home from school with a giant heart plastered to him.)
this kid rocks. and he makes me smile... a lot.
he was so excited from the days events and couldn't wait to tell me all about it.
so we took a short recess and examined each and every valentine he received.

....some time later, jason opened his birthday present.
he got what every 30 year old man needs.
a new power drill.
i think it makes them feel even more manly for some reason.

so, welcome to the thirties, babe.
sadly, i will be joining you in a short 10 months :(
