Jimmy turns 2 YEARS OLD in January!

So I'm super behind with blogging. I need to catch up from a few months ago. I mainly just do this for myself because I love looking back at posts and seeing what we did and how different my kids were at the same ages. So here is a little update on Jimmy:

We had a small friend park donut party for Jimmy and I don't think he even knew it was his birthday because we go to the park all the time haha. 

Jimmy is so different from Chase. He is very loving and cuddly like Chase but also very determined when he wants do something his way. He has no fear and will try anything. He is also quite independent. At the beach he will go up to play with anyone and will keep walking down the beach as far as I will let him. This has made the beach kind of tricky especially when I don't have Casey with me. 

Jimmy has been struggling a little bit with expressive speech and we just got him started with speech therapy. He can understand everything and follow commands he just cant always express what he wants. This has lead him to another problem...biting. 

He got kicked out of the gym daycare which I had to just cancel so now I can only workout in the mornings. And he got kicked out of nursery a few times. So we are really hoping the speech therapy will help with his frustration and the biting will stop. 

Jimmy loves to eat almost anything but does not like noodles which Chase loves. He would eat french fries for every meal if I let him. His other favorites are yogurt, avocados, berries, corn dogs, chicken nuggets, pizza, bacon and eggs. 

His favorite toys are trucks, car, trains and he loves to jump on the trampoline with Chase. He also loves to attempt to ride a scooter and big wheel. Jimmy is very active and busy. He could be outside playing all day if I let him. He is still napping once during the day and definitely needs that nap. 

We love our little Jimbo Slice :)

January Trip to UTAH

We made a trip up to Utah to visit all of Casey's family after New Years. It is usually easier to get up there after Christmas because everyone has all their extended family so close by so Christmas is such a crazy time!

We loved spending time in the snow and being around the beautiful mountains!
Some things we did while there:

-Attended my cousin Jace Rozsa's Wedding at the Draper Temple !
-Celebrated Jimmy turning 2 a little early with a family birthday party
-Took Chase skiing at Sundance! He only lasted a few runs on the rope tow
-Had lunch with my Aunt Jody
-Spent lots of time with cousins! Classic Skating and Hang time
-Snow shoeing up at SUNDANCE. It was so beautiful!
-Sledding with friends and cousins
-eating at all of our favorite places we miss (way too much Sodaliscous and Swig)

Until next time UTAH :)

A California Christmas 2016

It's MARCH tomorrow and I am so behind on life. Literally have about 4 loads of laundry calling my name right now :/
So why not do a little Christmas post?!
This year we spent Christmas in California. Since my parents are kind of homeless; living at my grandmas house in La Canada while they build their house in San Clemente. We decided to do Christmas in Ventura at the condo. It was just my sisters and parents since my brother Trent and his wife were with her family and my other brother is on his mission in Arkansas. 

There are lots of pictures on this post. Most are of Christmas activities throughout the month of December. On Christmas eve eve we went to La Canada for my grandmas' annual girls breakfast and for her Christmas party with my cousins later that evening. I hadn't been to either of those in 7 years! So that was pretty fun! Especially to hang out with all my cousins and their kids.

Christmas in Ventura was cold! We went surfing a few times and sat in the hot tub after which is the only way to get me out there haha. We went to a few movies, ate some good food and went on lots of walks. It was a good time!
