Shiny New Sink

Mike is really stepping it up on his home improvement projects.

On Saturday he installed a new sink, faucet and trash disposal.

I LOVE the faucet. It is so nice to have the high arc. We picked it up at Costco in case you want one too!

It is so nice to be able to rinse large pans out in the big, deep sink.

We bought the sink on sale months ago and have just been waiting to install it. The fact that our trash disposal died made it the perfect time.

Our friend John came over to assist in the whole production.

Thanks boys!

Peach Delight

I feel like we've got a sign up on our house that reads "We love peaches".

Last month I met someone who had a peach tree that was heavy laden. She invited Jasper and I over to come pick a lot of peaches. We had a ball and made peach jam with our bounty.

Last night someone from my ward called and asked if I wanted to come pick some of her extra peaches. I happily knocked on her door at 7:20 AM for some more!

We keep churning out the peach smoothies. Jasper had fun drinking his out of a teeny tiny Tupperware cup -- just his size!


The latest peaches are tiny like apricots - great for snacks and smoothies. If you want some, come on by!

Curtain Call!

Is there anywhere more fun to play "hide and seek" than in the curtains?

Not for Jasper. It's his favorite place to play.

His dresser used to block full access to the curtains, but I rearranged his room and now the game is on. PEEK-A-BOO!

It's all about the SHOES!

Three months ago Jasper found a pair of shoes that I picked up for him on super clearance.

The only problem is that he didn't understand that they are 3 sizes too big!

I don't know if he liked them so much because they are shiny silver or what, but he just LOVED them.

He even napped with them on. And had to wear them WITH his pajamas at night.

Once he got his hands on them he HAD to wear them -- all of the time. When I tried to take them off him, he'd run like the wind.

I was FINALLY able to pry them off his feet and tuck them back away in the closet.

Bye Bye!

For the last two days when we've put Jasper down for a nap or for the night he hasn't made a peep when we've left the room.

He simply lays on his back, gives a tight hug to his stuffed animals and waves us off as he says, "Bye, Bye".

It's as if he is saying -- See ya later Mom and Dad. I've got my babies and they are all the company I need.

It is so WONDERFUL! For the last year he has gone to sleep pretty well, but usually there is some whimpering at the beginning.

Thank you Mickey and the gang!

Towel Boy

Jasper LOVES to be in his towel after shower or bath. Truth be told, he mostly showers.

After ANOTHER run through the sprinklers last week I stripped him down to dry him off.

He just wanted to sit on the stairs in his towel and was happy as can be.

Funny little guy!

Breakfast Club

Jasper is recently obsessed with his stuffed animals. Sometimes they ALL eat breakfast with us. Whew! It takes a long time to feed us all. :>

Jasper discovered Mickey and Minnie at my parent's house last month. My mom was nice enough to let Jasper bring them home with us.

"Puppy" has been in the family for the last year, but Jasper hasn't been interested in him until now.

The nice about our new friends is that if Jasper won't eat something I simply give a bite to one of his friends and then Jasper will take a bite.

It did take a little explaining for Jasper to get the drift that his furry friends have to sit at the table, not in his high chair.

After we're done eating, Jasper's buddies are all his. Thank you for your help Mickey, Minnie and Puppy.

I know, Puppy needs a name. Any suggestions?

On Our Way to Costco

We were ready to head out to Costco when I remembered that I needed to grab something from the backyard.

Big mistake.

Big mistake to go in the back yard when the sprinklers are running.

Since it was 109 degrees out, I just let Jasper run free through the sprinklers...and turn the hose on.
