3 months old and 4 months old

I know I know.... where have I been..... busy is the answer. Life around here is fantastic but very very busy, we are loving every minute of it. I will try to update you on what has been going on in our lives... On April 13th, Hudson and Oliver were dedicated at church, it was really nice, Jackson was also dedicated at 3 months so it was nice that this happened in April.

At the beginning of May we traveled home to Saskatchewan for my grandma's garage sale, she has been in a home for a bit now and we decided now was the time to do that. We had a really nice time with family and Jackson LOVES the farm - he couldn't get enough of it - he ate dirt and collected tons of stones - he is your typical boy. Jackson is also telling us he wants to be a fireman when he gets older, it is cute and he is mastering potty training so well, I am so proud of him he is becoming a big boy more and more everyday!!!

Hudson and Oliver continue to do well, Hudson rolled over today for the first time, Oliver better get at it :) They both are just getting over colds but are doing well, laughing and talking lots and each loving their own cribs. Hudson loves to stay up late and chat with mommy and daddy, he is also the early riser. Hudson also needs mommy a bit more, where Oliver is more laid back.

We have been going on lots of play dates and just having as much fun as we can. I am trying to take in every moment as I can... our plan is to have no more children so I am reminded each time Hudson and Oliver do something that this will be the last of it such as "last time you get that excited feeling they first laugh" or "first roll over"..... I realize there will be tons of more first times for them each day as they grow older and older but you just don't realize how fast time flies by. Life is busy but I wouldn't trade it for anything, I LOVE it - yesterday i was in superstore (for you americans, this is large grocery store, kinda like a super walmart or target) anyways, some woman past me and said TWINS? I replied "yes" to which she replied "WHAT A NIGHTMARE" - I wanted to ask miss debbie downer what here deal was, but I happily replied that it isn't a nightmare and we, as I always say, are incredibly blessed.

enjoy the pics and I promise to email more soon. I'm sure there is more that we have been doing but I just can't remember right now, we are just enjoying hanging out as a family.
hope all of you who read this are doing well.
