I wanted to get a good picture of the kids for their bathroom and I had this idea to put them in this old tub that was in my in-laws shed. I love how the pictures came out and this is the one I ended up using. It is in the sepia color in my bathroom but I couldn't figure out how to get it like that on here. I should post the ones that I didn't use.....nah, let's not.

I need a nap.

There is never a dull moment when Jacksen is around. I have never meet anyone quite like him! Half the time he makes me want to pull my hair out, but he is so loving and cuddly at the same time. I couldn't resist sharing some of his most recent antics! I love this boy so much!!

Jacksen stuck in the soccer net.

He has to wear my shades when we are waiting in the car for preschool to start.

Jacksen stuck in the basketball hoop.
He never wears clothes when we are home, and this is the last time I saw my vaccum attachments. Has anyone seen them??

"But mom, spider man just wanted to swim." What you can't see is the two inches of water on the bathroom floor. I think his brother helped him with this one.

What's with all the Bon Jovi music?

Well, I have kept my Bon Jovi songs playing for a while now anticipating the big day! I had a blast at the concert and even more fun being with my mom, Aunt Julie, and cousin Katee. We rocked out like we were 80's groupies and made some great memories. Here are a few pics of the big night.

What happened to Lani?

Okay, so it's been a while. You may be wondering if the stress finally became too much to handle and if I had run away. Or maybe you thought my kids burnt down the house and I didn't have access to a computer. Well, for those of who thought that I was just doing dishes, laundry, changing diapers, and runnin around like a crazy win. Posting on my blog has been furthest from my mind lately but I had a spare second this morning and wanted to give a quick update to how things are going.
We lost our sweet Grandma Sam last week. We took the kids to see her on Easter Sunday (she was here in Winslow in a private nursing home), they took her an Easter egg they had dyed and a picture of Christ they had colored at church that day. We had a great visit and the kids each kissed her and said goodbye. It was a great day and I am so glad that the kids will remember her smiling and happy to see them. She was a very special Grandma and we will miss her very much, but the kids have learned a lot about Heavenly Father's plan for us. They know that it is okay to miss her but that we will see her again someday.
Anyways, I will be posting lots of pictures soon....they have been adding up in my camera and we have lots of fun stories to share!!
