Great Souvenir ideas!

I was reading a Parenting Magazine a little bit ago at the doctor's office and I read a great idea! The article was on souvenirs when you go on vacation. The idea was to take a glass jar like a Mason jar when you go on vacation and collect things from your Vacation to put into the jar. For instance, Leaves, pine cones acorns, or if you go to the beach, sand, sea shells, you get the point. Then you can label the jar as to where you have been and it looks great on your shelf or mantle. Another idea from the same article was to also collect fun things from your vacation like ticket stubs, receipts, even wrappers of treats you might have eaten in the car on the way like gum wrappers. Then to collage them in a shadow box and display it with fun pictures from your vacation. I thought it was such a good idea. Anyone else have some fun ideas?

Jaden's being Potty Trained!!

I went to the Doctor's yesterday with Jaden for his 18 month Well Check and while we were there he was saying poo poo and getting on his tipy toes like he normally does when he's about to go. She said to me.. Have you thought about potty training him yet? I said yes but people have told me that he's too young, she said no he knows when he needs to go and I would train him now before he realizes it's easier to go in his diaper. So after our appointment we went to the store and got Jaden his training potty. Here he is trying it out. He did such a good job. We didn't even need to tell him what to do. He already gets it. That's awesome. Way to go Jaden!!

sorry about the graphic content. But we wanted to share!

Joel and I celebrated our Anniversary at home this year and since it was a Sunday we decided to make it a fun day at home. We made one of our favorites for lunch Hawaiian Hay Stacks and watched our wedding video while we ate.

We took a nice little drive to see the sun set and then had some Chocolate covered strawberries and cream puffs!! Yummy!!

While we ate we watched Oprah's big give and just enjoyed relaxing together. It was such a fun day! I love you Joel!! Nikki

Happy Anniversary!!

Today 6 Years ago, Joel and I were Married and Sealed to each other. Happy Anniversary!! I love you!

Funny little things Jaden Has done!

I caught Jaden lounging on the lawn mower bag on the back porch. How did he get out there? He went through the doggy door. Oh, No!!

Jaden likes to play in my closet and will frequently come out wearing some of my clothes, shoes, jewelry and in this case my purse and Joel's hat. He's so funny.

He thinks he's so cute, well that's because we tell him that everyday!
