New Hobby

So this post is all about me. I know you were hoping for some adorable pics of the boys but I am selfishly going to post about what I have been up to. I think I have found a new hobby. While on maternity leave, I became addicted to a few baking blogs. From there, I experimented. From there, I created these...

and these....

I haven't made much more than this, with exception of the occasional white wine cake (YUM-O!). I am a little obsessed to tell you the truth. When I come home, I want to bake. When I'm at work, I want to bake. It is weird. I have always been a box-of-brownies kind of girl; NOT a baker. I totally love it and want to try some new designs. Cookies are by far my favorite. I will have some cool stuff coming your way in regards to my baking, so stay tuned!
Other than that, it's just been the usual work, soccer, cleaning, cooking, diaper changing, baby showers, birthday parties, family gatherings, and baby bottles at 2:30am that it's always been.

We LOVE Presents!

We were pleasantly surprised to get a package the other day that contained a present for each of us. My Uncle Mel and Aunt Cindy from Oklahoma, sent Austin, Waylon and I a T-shirt from Ireland and some very fitting "monkey" pj's for Jack.

So stinking cute...

...but this is more realistic!

The package also contained this AMAZING baby blanket that was handmade for Jackson. Austin has one too that he still loves. It is getting a little tattered from all the lugging around.

One thing I love almost as much as my boys, is a homemade blanket. {And yes, that is my sweet baby sucking his thumb. He is doing it more often now when he gets sleepy. I guess he will take after his Mommy who sucked her thumb for an undisclosed amount of time (years).}

This blanket is even more AMAZING with this little monster laying on it.

Thank you Uncle Mel and Aunt Cindy for the very thoughtful gifts! We love you!
