Hunter's jabbers

What kid do you know of actually asks you to tickle them all the time??
If you dont know of any, now you do. Hunter asks us every time we are in the car..
"mommy, daddy...tickle" with a big smile on his face
"You want us to tickle you HunteR?"
"UH HUUUUHHHHHH!!!!!!!" (which by the way is the cutest uh huh in the highest pitched voice I absolutely love it)

The other day I was folding laundry and Hunter runs around the corner...
"" as he dragged me into his room and started throwing balls at me. So we played for a bit and I said ok mom has to go fold some more laundry... Hunter dropped the ball... looked at me so seriously and said "mom....NOO" He just wanted me to play. (These moments dont last long so things like laundry can wait)

I was driving Hunter home from visiting my mom and he had fruit snacks (the welchs mixed berry kind) and he pulls out a berry and goes..."Mommy...mommy BWOOO!!! BWOOO!!!" I looked back and sure enough the berry he had was a blue one.. WHo is this child? haha

Hunter loves to snuggle us and give us kisses.. I love being able to say give mommy kisses and he stops everything turns around with puckered lips to kiss me... How long can I do this for again??
His favorite show is Kung fu Panda... No lie we watch it every day and every night... just recently he loves to laugh hysterically at all the truly funny parts. Its hilarious! He laughs so hard which makes jas and I laugh so hard which makes him laugh harder and us...its a vicious cycle of wonderfulness!!

He also loves to say "Mommy, daddy!!!! WOOAAHH CRAZY!!!... or mommy daddy!!! Lkajdfaoepugjalk asldkjgaoiwejgaskdj lakdjgoiajegkjlkjdaoigj ? " Love the jabbering.
"Peace out, buh bye, and wuv wu" are some of our favorites.

He says his prayers which are the cutest thing on the planet...all we understand is "Waymen!" for Amen at the end hehe.

Jason and I talk to him and he understands everything we say... the other night Jas said "ok Hunter you have three options, you can either go to bed right now, snuggle and watch a movie, or sit in the corner cause you arent listening, which would you like?" He stopped crying looked at him and said "nuggle" aaahh cutest thing. He loves to help us clean, make dinner, and wants to put my makeup on for me.

We love him so much.

A good book

Ok, so a while ago I wrote an "ode to all moms" inspired by stories and talking amongst many moms who feel overwhelmed with the constant pull of being perfect. My resolution from it all was just to embrace the moments we have and do the best I can, no comparing myself to what I see or thought was perfect in my mind. Since then, I have loved watching my husband now smile at the mess he may come home to, and the wife who may not be done up for him on occasion...and the ruined pile of shirts I have from allowing my son to just LIVE and play in dirt, mud, snow, and food (which I will be buying a steam mop Ive decided), because now that Ive decided to let it all go.. Ive never been happier. I dont HAVE to be perfect, just try my best and complement those who do things I wish I could do. Ive decided I can choose to make any situation the happiest and Best I want it to be. Now when my child takes his drink (after mixing all his dinner in it first) and deliberately turns it upside down on the floor because he thinks its funny... I laugh and take pictures and then have him help me clean it all up because he thinks its awesome to help mommy and daddy. Its amazing that when I dont sweat the small stuff even if its on a brand new clean helps Jason not to feel that way too. (who knew right ? haha). Ive always loved being a mother...but since deciding not to COMPARE and just enjoy every has been that much better!
Im in the middle of reading several books but there is one I particularly LOVE... now that I have my kindle on my phone (oh my gosh LOOOOOVVVEEE this option)Im reading every time I get the chance ...THIS BOOK>>>>>>

DONT WORRY...this is not a BASH on husbands book! The title in and of itself is pretty funny...but the book is way funny too! Its been soo amazing to read! Ive felt the desire to be a better wife and just try to be better each day. This book has a pretty cool way of helping you see what you can do to better understand eachother and yourself too. I would totally recommend it to everyone!! Seriously, newlyweds or those married for a while will benefit from this! Jas has wanted me to read some to him cause he wonders why I bust up laughing a lot while reading my book next to him. ITs awesome!

One more thing... my son is a daredevil already.. Im afraid I would be the guilty one of passing this on to him.

Who are you again?

My green smoothie guys!

So you all know how Jason DESPISES anything that is green...or any color other than pizza color for that matter... haha. We have been a part of this makeover show for green smoothie girl at work so we have incorporated green smoothies in our lives! Go to and you will see what its all about. First I will attest that it definitely makes a huge difference in my life.. and SECOND its a miracle worker because in each quart you get 15 servings of veggies and fruits and here is the kicker.... JASON likes it?!!! He actually craves it!! WHAT>!! who knew? My husband eating veggies and fruits and craving it every day. Not only has he made a huge health lifestyle change but he has also parted with his beloved truck baby. We sold it for way more than what we got it for 2 years ago and made a lot of money off it... (how does that ever happen??) We paid off a lot of things and I told him as soon as we are out of all debt (except our mortgage) Id get him another truck. We hope in the next few months! ITs been a MAJOR blessing and huge sacrifice for Jason. Its not a possession for him, this was his hobby, what he loved to take care of. He did it without me even knowing he was going to sell it in the first place! I was so impressed and I think I cried more than he did. He is an amazing man and he truly is a HUGE blessing to mine and Hunter's lives. We love him so much.. thanks for sacrificing and working so hard to take care of us. We love you!

FYI....if you dont live here... It snowed today!!! GEESH!!! Will we ever see the sun and be able to leave our humble abodes??
