Sage has been such an easy going baby. The past 3 days she put herself down for a nap and slept for 3 hours each time. Its been so quiet here and I can get alot done. Here she is with some new books we got. We love reading books at our house. Every night either Tony or I will read the kids a book they each pick out. We have been doing this for the last 2 years and I think it really is a nice time to relax and bond with the kids. Its so cute to see Sage "reading" her books!

Yeah for Biggest Loser Cardio Max excersize DVD. Its really been kicking my butt, but its been working. Im now down to 125lbs and want to loose at least 5 more pounds. I need to figure out how to tighten my stomach without doing sit ups. I hate doing sit ups. Ive also been going for bike rides. Trying to mix up the excersize routine so I dont get bored. This morning was so nice out I went for a walk as soon as I came home from dropping off the kids at school. Im now off to go do my Carmen Electra strip tease excersize DVD. (BTW: its really fun..ya'll should try it out)

Sage being cute

Home Improvements

We've been doing a lot of things to the exterior of our home lately..maybe its the spring air getting us out there..who knows but our home is looking beautiful.
We hung 2 sun mirror things (we have flown a flag ever since we have lived in this home...gotta show our support for the good ol' US of A)

Heres is one of the new vines we planted and one of the latices (sp?) we built. I will try to get a better picture of the whole thing someday.

I got a bunch of free pilsbury pizza crusts this past week at Frys after coupon so we have had homemade pizza twice already. This one turned out exceptionally good.

Aubrey and her cousin had a sleep over. They were wearing the same shirt and were being so funny together. I can totally see the Jarvis resemblance in them both especially in there cheeks.
Aubreys front tooth was wiggly and during dinner I was asking her if she wanted me to pull it out later and she didnt want to. So dinner carried on like normal then I noticed the tooth was missing. It came out on its own and was on her dinner plate. Easiest tooth extraction ever. lol
