Father's Day gift

As most of you know I'm not a crafty person, although I try to be. For Father's day this year Lauren, Ben's sister, and I decided to get a little crafty for the gifts for the Grandpa's. I thought they turned out pretty cute and they weren't that hard. The hardest part was taking the pictures of the boys!!

I think we are going to have to do this for the Grandma's for Christmas.

I got this idea from I'm not that creative to come up with this on my own.

It's official...

Weston is now potty trained! What's funny is that he was ready and I was not. Hearing that boys are much harder than girls and not to expect him to be potty trained until he's 3, I was fine with waiting until January. Also, we have trips planned this summer - I'm flying by myself with the boys to Baton Rouge at the end of this month, driving to Salt Lake in August and Reno in August, going to Hawaii with the boys in September and Disneyland in October - so I really didn't want to potty train him until after all of our traveling.
But when he started seeing his other friends using the potty and getting treats, he decided he wanted to also. This child will do anything for candy!! He has been in big boy underwear for a week now with a few small accidents. He now even tells me when he needs to go potty with out me reminding him. He's doing so well with it, so I am very proud and happy for him. I will just have to make sure he goes to the bathroom every time we see one while we are traveling and hopefully everything will be ok.

Weston's potty training poster - I'm not very crafty, so this is what you get from me - but it worked. Every 3rd space had a picture of a piece of candy. So, when he put a sticker on that space, he would get candy. Every 30th space had a picture of a character from "CARS", so he would get a "CARS" car when he put a sticker on that space.

Weston's Candy Jar - for every 3 stickers he put on his poster, he was able to get one piece of candy out of the jar.

What - the Harber's have a post?

Yes, we haven't blogged in two years, but this year I'm going to try to start blogging again. I feel like we have so much going on that I really want to keep a record of it.
So, keep checking out page - you will no longer be seeing that "little frog" from two years ago!
