no fun...

My LONG week...

Thursday: Hudson threw up in our bed/high fever
Friday: Lyla (my niece) comes to our house to stay for the week while my sister is in Europe. Hudson still has a high fever
Saturday: My parents come up and we take the kids to the zoo; Hudson still has a little fever
Sunday: All the kids are fine. No complaints.
Monday: All the kids are fine. No complaints. 
Tuesday: Crew woke up and didn't feel well...luckily he threw up & made it to the toilet (No School for Crew)
Wednesday: All the kids were fine. Crew went to school...Hudson threw up as soon as Wyatt got home from school all over him then tried making it to the bathroom to go #2 and didn't make it & threw up on the couch.
Thursday: Hudson woke up and threw up all over himself and then once again didn't make it to the bathroom in time. I did what felt like 100 loads of laundry, and disinfected and cleaned our whole house.
Friday: Went in Lyla's room when she woke up only to find throw up in her pack n play and on her blankets. More laundry...and more disinfecting. 

This has to go down as one of my least enjoyable weeks as a mother. I haven't ever cleaned this much after sick kiddos before and it's no fun and not something I enjoy about being a mother. I am although grateful for my husband's willingness to help me out with these 3 sick kids. He always knows how to brighten my day...I sent him to the store to buy some pedialite and more laundry detergent and he came back with these pretty Sunflowers for me to enjoy while I am home bound until these cute little kiddos feel better. Cheers to a new week!

Another Disney Day!






My sister called me Tuesday morning and wanted Crew to "skip" school so we could come join them at Disneyland for the day...so we headed down in the morning and ended up spending the day with not only Tori and the boys but my friend McCall and her cute family as well. We had such a fun day!!

Perks of living in LA...


This past month I have been fortunate enough to attend a few TV show tapings:

Ellen's Mother's Day Show & The Price Is Right

They both were such a blast and I will never forget what a great experience they were. I never thought I would ever be one of the audience members to get spoiled; and boy was I wrong!

Proud to be a Mother

I am feeling so proud to be the mother of these two little boys. I feel like I have the most rewarding job even though at times it can feel a bit repetitious. I think it's crazy how sometimes I just can't wait for bedtime but then in the morning I can't wait until they wake up because I miss them. I am so thankful that Heavenly Father sent these two amazing boys to our family and intrusted me to raise them righteously. I love you Crew and Hudson and feel so lucky that I am your mom!

On another note...I had the BEST Mother's day ever. It started off on Thursday when I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Ellen Degeneres Mother's day taping and she hooked us up! We got over $6,500 worth of items and lets just say I am set up to have a third baby when the time comes. On Friday a dozen colored roses were sent to me from the boys and on Saturday I came home from a Relief Society brunch and there were dots cupcakes (my fave!) waiting for me and a new church outfit (pictured above) from J. Crew. I definitely got spoiled this year from my most favorite boys. I will never forget this special Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Mom, 
I couldn't have asked for a better Mom...you are such a great example to me. I am so grateful for you continually teaching me to be the best mom I can possibly be. I love that my own kids love you as much as I do. But really..who doesn't love Launa? Thanks for always being there when I need you and for being so patient and understanding. I love you so much and wish you a happy Mother's Day!!!
 Mabel, 
You are such a great mother/nana to our family. We appreciate all you do for us and we know that this hasn't been the best year for you but seeing how positive you have been about things makes us admire you so much. We are so grateful for you and your generosity and love you show our family. You truly deserve to be honored on this mother's day. 
Love, Wyatt, Jenny, Crew and Hudson

 Easter morning.

For the second half of Wyatt's spring break we spent it down in Dana Point at my parent's BeachHouse. Every year the park across the street from their home does a huge Easter egg hunt. So we woke up Saturday morning and watch them get everything set up. They have a petting zoo, face painting, potato sack races and the best egg hunt ever. (King size candy bars) On Easter we went over to the Fergie's house for a yummy dinner and another egg hunt with the cousins.

1st half of Wyatt's Spring Break in AZ



















We had such a fun week in Arizona with Wyatt's family. The boys swam a ton, at least 3 times everyday starting at 8am. They just can't get enough of the water! We spent our time relaxing by the pool, eating at our favorite AZ restaurants, spending time with family and we also went to Tucson for a day to see Papa D's old stomping grounds and then he took us to Old Tucson where the boys rode horses, went on a train, drove cars and watched some gunfights. It was a blast! The boys loved Old Tucson and Crew still talks to me about it. Thanks for such a fun week Nana and Papa D!
