one of my favorite things

This is one of my very favorite things and I simply could not live without it so I thought I would share my great find with you. It helps me stay organized, keep appointments and remember everything from birthdays to sport practices. It has a wall calender and a pocket planner to carry with you :) I found this great set at Costco for 2010 that has a kids to do list and grocery list planner too. I have been using them for 5 years now and I honestly don't know what I would do without it...juggling 3 boys and all there activities gets crazy and I can't remember everything so I simply LOVE is a must have in the Cundick house!! It makes a great gift too!!

happy 10th birthday jackson

I can't believe my Jackson is 10!! Honestly where does the time go? It seems like yesterday he was born at 12 noon, 7 lbs 6 oz and 19 inches long....he was perfect! From birth Jackson has loved balls, golf balls, footballs, tennis balls, basketball, soccer balls...any kind of ball and he was always holding one. Jackson is a natural athlete for what he lacks in size his heart makes up for it. He plays and loves everything and loves being busy. Jackson loves playing and teaching his brothers sports and they can keep busy all day. Jackson has taught Landon how to flip scoop a lacrosse ball and how to shoot, it is so cute. Jackson is a great big brother! We are all so blessed to have him in our family. We look forward to many more birthdays we just wish we could press rewind once in a while because time goes by so fast. We love you so much Jackson!!

Here are 10 things that you may not know about Jackson...

1. He LOVES maple syrup on EVERYTHING
(Just call him Buddy)
2. His Favorite cereal is oatmeal
3. His first word was "Ball"
4. He hates to go to bed
5. He could eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner
6. He hates mayonnaise
7. He had blonde curly hair until he was 4
8. He loves to knit
9. He loves BYU & Princeton
(we don't know how that happened, we have RED running through our veins)

my toes

It has been a YEAR since I have been able to get a pedicure. Last summer I kick the door jam in my car and ripped off my left big toenail...boy did it hurt! I has taken one whole year for it to grow back and I was finally able to go get a pedicure and I am counting the days till I can go again. Is there anything better then having cute toes??

from our kitchen to yours

For months now (actually years) my sister and I have been swapping recipes. She tells me about something she made that was great and visa versa. We came up with the idea of a family cookbook but it seemed like the only ones interested in it was us. I LOVE to cook and bake, it seems like some days I don't ever leave the kitchen. My friends and family are always asking me for great recipes so yes you guessed it...I started a recipes blog!! It is called Whisk US Away, doesn't it sound like a fabulous dream?? My sister Michelle and I will be blogging all our favorite family recipes. You can find everything from tangy teryiaki chicken to refreshing summer lemonade and yes let's not forget the delicious desserts!! So make sure to follow us so all of our yummy recipes are just a click away and visit us whenever you need something new to spice us your kitchen!!

4th of july camping

We were thinking of going camping over the 4th but with Ryan's sciatic back pain, rainy weather and a stomach bug this was what the boys came up with. Ryan put our small tent in Jackson's room and we set up our solar system star light while the boys piled in the blankets and pillows. They all fell fast asleep and nobody had to fight with bugs or wander around in the dark to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night :)

Jesus on the 4th of July

We gather ‘round to celebrate
On Independence Day
Pay homage to our country
As the children run and play.

With barbecues and picnics
And fireworks in the air
The flag we own is proudly flown
To show how much we care.

The stars and stripes spell freedom
She waves upon the breeze
While bursts of colors can be seen
Above the towering trees.

This is all quite wonderful
We revel in delight
But God above in divine love
Has brought this day to light.

With just a stroke of liberty
A touch of His great hand
He gave democracy to us
And helped this country stand.

The stripes upon our stately flag
Were touched by His sweet grace
Each star of white that shines so bright
Reflects His loving face.

So as you turn to face the flag
For battles that were fought
Be filled with pride for those who died
And freedoms that were bought.

But don’t forget to thank the One
That gives the bright display
The reason why we paint the sky
On Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!
