Where's Grant???

He's crawling all over the place!!! It happened so fast I forget he can go places. This is where I found him the other day after being in my office for a few minutes, I came out and couldn't find him. Kenna saves him from the dog food a few times a day. She's really great at watching him. Today we learned that he loves pickles. He's working on throwing fits, and still giggles all the time.

We love our Baby Grant!

Lifes Too Short

Travis Alexander was a friend from PrePaid Legal.
He was found dead this past monday. I hadn't been in contact with Travis since I stopped doing PPL, but his death has made me think a lot about life. I always think people will die when they've had a chance to figure things out; overcome their personal obstacles, and achieve most of what they want out of life. But, what if it was tomorrow. We're not promised 80 years or even 60 years. We are promised the opportunity to live on this earth and be the best we can be every moment that we are given. I hope you enjoy the blessing of today. Laugh with your kids more, kiss your husband extra, be silly, thank your Heavenly Father for your blessings, and spread your joy.

I love you all!

Puke and Panties

Today McKenna found my "pretty panty" drawer and said, "Yay swimming suits, lets pretend to go to the pool", sooooo......we did!

Oh the shame! Thanks to blogging it made for a funny post.

Last night I McKenna called for me about 2am. When I walked in there was puke from her to the opposite end of the room. To get to her I had to walk through it. I didn't even know where to start. John took Kenna while I got to do the fun part of cleaning up while trying not to add to the problem with my own sickness. I think Kenna had a few too many of Grandma Susan's Cinnamon rolls. And then I gave her 2 things of chocolate milk before bed, I know I'm a bad mom.

Eating Clean

It seems like everyone around me is on a clean eating/fitness kick. Maybe it's summer, maybe its the "law of attraction" (from The Secret). Whatever the reason it's great!

Eating Clean is not a new concept its what everyone knows they should be doing.
Proteins- Egg whites, chicken, lean beef, turkey, and fish
Carbs- Oatmeal, brown rice, vegetables, whole wheat
Fat- You'll get all the fat you need by eating the lean proteins

1. Eat 6 small meals.
2. Only 2-3 clean carbs per day.
3. Lots of water!
4. Have protein at every meal.
General rule is 1/2 of your body weight is your daily grams of Protein.

Pretty simple. Just think clean clean clean.

My favorite thing to eat right now is:
5oz. of Ground Turkey with Taco seasoning mixed with 1/2 cup Brown rice and Salsa.

I'm having a challenge with my friend Shellie to see who can do 100% the longest.
Wish me luck!

Silly Sunday

Last night I literally tickled Grant to sleep.

He loves to laugh!
He's sitting behind me right now in his
bouncy chair just laughing at nothing.

The site of McKenna makes him laugh.
Here is McKenna laughing with her
Great Grandma Pratt.

Here's McKenna trying to make you laugh.

John is out of town until Tuesday night we
miss him.

"I need my Dad to wock (rock) me",
McKenna says.

Happy Sunday!
