Bath time!!

My boys always love bath time.  I've never had to struggle with them to get them in the tub (maybe getting them out, but not IN).  Here Dallin is, having fun as "Santa Dallin"


Taste testing the beard.




Logan!!  

*CHEESE*




"Why are you taking pictures of me, mama?"



And of course, the nakie bum shot.  hee hee!




You're so cute, Logan!




Logan and Dallin are the best of friends.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot.  Nothing in the world makes me happier than seeing my kids loving eachother.  :)

Doggies and Gardens


Yesterday Dallin came in saying that Bella (our dog) had thrown up in the backyard.  Poor Bryson thought that menat she was going to die and he was all shaken up about it.  So, I told him I could take some pictures of him with Bella.  He said he didn't want anyone to see him crying because that was embarassing, but I assured him it was ok, and if she ever did "leave us", that he would be grateful for these pictures.  


So, here are the pictures of Bryson and Bella, best friends.






This picture is so cute!




 At first I was sad that this picture was blurry, but it's kind of sweet like it is.


Then, today, while I was gardening Dallin wanted his picture taken.  I love having this boy home during the day with me.  


Bryson was home sick today, so he spent the morning cuddling with Bella outside.


And here's Cory with Starbucks.  I love that Starbucks is totally grinning in this picture.  He LOVES getting love!



My garden is finally growing.  I've had to replant it THREE TIMES THIS YEAR!  Stupid dogs keep getting into it.  Grumble grumble.   

Here's our squash

Our first Jalapeno!


Tomatoes!!


It doesn't look like much now, but it will!  (unless the dogs get into it again!)



And here's our 2nd garden that we planted this last weekend.



All in all, we have:

  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Pumpkin
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Bell Pepper
  • Jalapeno Pepper
  • Squash
  • Onion
  • Cucumbers
  • Radishes
Here's hoping we get some fruits from our labors...

Bathroom Remodel


Check out this blog post, documenting the beginning of our bathroom remodel.  Please note that this particular blog post was dated OCTOBER 2009!  Yes, that's right about a year and a half ago.  But, here we have it!...

John's BEAUTIFUL tiling job!  It was worth the wait.





His new toy...a tile cuter, complete with lazer.  ha ha!  What is it about boys and tools with lazers?  Or is it just my husband? 



He's really good about bringing the boys in on the jobs.





Might be a little more of my husband than you want to see, sorry!  But just check out the utter disaster zone!




Tile layed, and being grouted...



And THIS was Saturday!  Ooooooh!  Ahhhhhh!  I love it!  There are still SEVERAL things that need to be finished, but we're definately over the hump, and things are beginning to look better, rather than worse. 



Thanks, John!  I love it!

Dancing Dallin!

video


Dallin loves to dance.  It's so funny watching him MOVE!  He's such a character!  His whole life I've found myself thinking "Oh, I'm going to miss the stage so much" but then the next one is even more fun!  Maybe it's not the stages, maybe it's just HIM that is so neat!  Love you, Dallin, you CRAZY little boy!

...and yes, it was Laundry day, so ignore the piles of clothes everywhere.  In a perfect world, these cute little moments would only happen when your house is clean!


Logan videos!


Here is a compilation of video clips from Logan the past week.  He's FINALLY learned to crawl, well, kind of anyway.  He can move from point A to point B, at least!  Only took him 11 1/2 months, but as long as he's moving by the time he's the big ONE, I'm good!

...and once again, the background is not a spotless house...sorry!

Babies have bad hair days too!


Logan woke up this morning with this hairdo.  ha ha ha.  Poor kid thought we were all just happy to see him when we saw him and started laughing.  We love you, Logan.  We really do.

Just a summer evening at the Tiltons


I know it's not technically summer yet, but this 80 degree weather makes us feel like it is!  I LOVE it!!  I mean, I really LOVE IT!  (Although I may be singing a different tune when it starts reaching the low 100's)

Anyway, last night after dinner, chores were done, dishes were put away, and the kids and I all went out to play (...does that rhyme, ha ha)

Just perfect weather.  Did I mention I love it?  :)

The brothers all take turns carting Logan around in this red wheel barrow.  (No wonder he can't crawl yet, his brothers make him plenty mobile without any personal effort).  Cory is especially sweet about taking care of Logan, always rushing to his aide the moment he lets out a peep...



...or a holler!




Logan just watches his brothers.  You can tell he wants to be just like them when he grows up


Look how big Cory is!!!




And my precious Bryson.  What a nut!  He's been practicing baseball lately.



He's been trying to teach Dallin how to play.  Dallin doesn't really get it, but they have fun anyway.




And Dallin.  Oh Dallin.  This picture says it all. 




You can see how happy Logan gets when his brothers come around to play with him.  They give him cool things to look at, like sticks or rocks.  He just LOVES it.



And when they run off to play, he just watches intently.



So sweet.  I can't wait to get this guy moving.  He'll love it so much!
