afternoon out.

Chad and I went to see this movie today.  It's been out for a while, but the time was right and it looked kind of funny.  Yep, it was funny.  

Now, this is just wrong!
Thanks "G" for watching the boys.

{ cravings }

I have been craving these for a weeks.  So I made some.

IMO my sisters and I make  the best chocolate chip cookies. Don't believe me?  Ask them. Okay, so we're biased, but if you are so lucky (tooting my horn right now) to have tried them, you'll agree.  

So if you want to make some too, use this recipe.  It's the best. But to make them like I do, you have to use Butter Crisco instead of butter, and imitation vanilla.  And when they are cooking, you have to take them out of the oven BEFORE they brown, they should only have slight browning on the edges. And leave them on the cookie sheet to cool.  I don't put the walnuts in either.  Trust me, they're YUMMMMMMMMY!
Now go make some.

Today the weather was yucky, can't believe it rained (did I say rained?  I meant poured and hailed). It was 100 degrees on monday, what's up with that?  So we went here!  We love this place. Thanks for coming with us Aunt Amy, we will miss you when you leave to Arizona.

DREAMING: silly rabbit, silly uncle

We heard that uncle Tony had an incredible game of one-on-one basketball the other evening!  The game took place in dreamland, Uncle Tony v.s. The Trix Rabbit?  Wow, Tony has some great dreams!!!!

If you are wondering who won, you'll have to ask Tony.  Unfortunately we weren't able to attend that game.  We'll stay tuned for tonight's game.  Uncle Tony v.s. Toucan Sam, and if he wins that series he will go on to the play-offs, joined by Tony the Tiger and Lucky the Leprechaun.
Silly Tony!

{ brothers }

"My Brother, My Friend
I love my brother, my brother loves me. 
My friend, my hero, he always will be.
In sundry ways our uniqueness is clear.
He likes to go far, but I favor near.
He likes to play sports and being outside.
I prefer playing music and playing inside.
Sometimes we fight and scream at each other,
but he is my friend for he is my brother."

my beautiful mammas

Wanted to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day! 

To my mom, grandma and "G":
Thanks for all you do for our family.  You mean so much to us and are priceless in our eyes.  
And to my pals,
I often look at each one of you and wonder, "How does she do that?  She is sooo amazing!" I see how you nurture and care for your little ones leading them on the right path in life.  The joy you and your children share.  I am fascinated by the many accomplishments you have all made.
And on those hard days, when you are just about to give up, take a minute and give your babies a hug!  Dance around, forget about the housework, look into the precious eyes of your little one and see the sweetness.  Remember how important you are to your little sweeties....the most precious things on earth. They love you are their hero!  And you are all mine.

Being a mommy is the hardest....and the BEST thing on earth! 

You are all the best!

xoxo, Jill

gone fishin'

If you could only see the faces on my boys as the returned home from a morning out fishing with daddy.  They were all smiles from ear to ear!  They enjoyed a morning with daddy, papa and their cousins at a local fishing pond where they were able to catch fish.  Jackson caught a pretty big one, and little Kyle was as happy as can be just carrying a fishing pole around.  Jack said that he wanted to go back right now and didn't want the fun to end!  Lucky Boys!

I don't remember who got along with whom first.
All I can remember is all of us together...always."

I wish you all success in life, and that all your dreams may come true.  
I may seem busy a lot of the time, but I keep you all in my prayers. 
I just wanted to take a moment and give a shout out to you.  
You have truly helped me to know what is most important in life.  
I love you all,
