Sunshine Sunday - my mother-in-law, sweet moves, and boys in buckets

We had a big week around here with lots of reasons to be thankful.

First off, we bought a car and I'm thrilled about it!  We are ready for another little one in our family and our car now.  I'll tell you more about it on Wednesday.

My husband was out of town for a few days and I had been asked to run a booth at BYU Women's conference, which meant my husband's parents watched the boys for two days.  They are really amazing, thoughtful people.  My mother-in-law wins the prize of the year for watching them because Baden got the flu, throwing up many times, none of which were in the toilet.  I felt horrible!  She was so kind about it.

The boys have been learning some sweet moves on the rope ladder and rings we put up a few weeks ago.  They like to have a spectator to watch their sweet moves, which gives me time to just sit on a bean bag and relax for a little while.

And man are they growing.  I kind of have a weird thing for taking pictures of my boys in Costco carts.  Here's two years ago... 

...and here's yesterday.

Yesterday we even hit a Home Depot workshop for the boys, which they always love.  Rex thought he's try sitting with the bucket the other way, but then he couldn't get out.

Good things to blog about this week - the car choice, the final bathroom reveal, and a couple more things.  See you tomorrow and thank you for stopping by.


  1. My sons would have loved having a rope swing inside the house! What a fun idea. Your boys are adorable.

  2. They are getting so big! It makes me happy to know there will me another cutie soon. :)
    Hope you had a great time at women's week and you had a "little" break from the normal crazy momma life.

  3. Your mother-in-law gets the award of the year for that one cause I am sure Baden also wanted his mom when sick! Hooray for her!

  4. they are so cute :)

  5. I was there Thursday at Women's Conference--wish I had been able to run into you! It was so busy. My mom was a speaker during one of the times, so it was super fun.

    Glad you had a week filled with good things, Cheri!

  6. has this seemed to be a really fast moving pregnancy to you also? It is so special for grandchildren to have a close relationship with grandparents. Even the irps and all the other things unpleasant add to the memories. Looking forward to the bathroom pix too.

  7. How/where did you get those fabulous black and white lego men prints??? I know a certain someone who would love those on their walls!

    1. I made them and posted about it here:

  8. What darling boys. The rope swing sounds like a total blast!
