"Never Grow Up"



"Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter 'cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light

To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
No, no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies
And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off
At 14, there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots

But don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older, too
And don't lose the way that you dance around
In your PJs getting ready for school

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

No one's ever burned you
Nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to
Just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs

I just realized everything I have
Is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up

Oh, I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
Could still be little
Oh, I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

Won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
And even through to you want to
Please try to never grow up

Don't you ever grow up
(Never grow up)
Just never grow up"


I can't believe that my little man is almost 6 months old. He is growing SO fast and I know that it will continue to fly by. Before I know it - he will be in high school. Ahh - tear :) Krew is such a joy in our lives - his personality is so fun. I've had this song stuck in my head - but it's so true - he's going to grow up faster than I can ever imagine. Love you Krew!

A Little Whining.....

Okay, so I'm allowed to whine every once in a while aren't I!? So here it goes :) I seriously MISS all of my sister-in-laws, seriously! I'm all alone here in Idaho...haha. Everyone is or will be in Arizona in the next few months! I'm so happy that they will all be together - but what about me!? haha. I kid I kid. I guess I got lucky and feel SUPER blessed because a lot of people that I know HATE their in-laws, especially their sister-in-laws - but NOPE not me. I count down the days until I get to hang out with them. Anyways, just wanted to say that I miss you guys! Sadie - I miss our pedicures. Jen - I miss Rocko & your Sassiness, and Melissa - I miss our bargain shopping! All I can say is I better get to come visit all of you guys in August in Arizona and get some QUALITY sister-in-law time :) There - it's done...I whined and feel a little better, but will feel EVEN better when I get to see you guys. Love "ya'll" :)



I realized this is the ONLY picture we have of all of us together - that needs to change!
You guys are the best!

Sleepy Krew...

Please excuse the sideways video - but I feel like it is worth it to post it anyway that I can - hehe. Tonight, Krew had his favorite for dinner, delicious rice with peaches mixed in...yum! He was excited at first, then quickly decided that sleep was MORE important than food...Here's the play by play:

"I want to be like my Daddy..."

Krew and I are SO proud of Michael. He is such a hard worker - we miss him when he is at school all day, but we appreciate the time he puts into getting his degree! We can almost see the end of the tunnel - only 2 more semesters after this one - yay! Anyways, Krew told me today that he wanted to grow up and be JUST like his dad someday...I am perfectly fine with that! I would be one proud momma if Krew ends up like his dad!


"Dad, let ME show you how this computer stuff is done"


"You just input this code - you know, the binary one"


"Press Enter..."



"And THAT is how it's done"

Really only Michael will appreciate this post. But we thought it was way cute! He rolled over two times to get to the laptop. He is becoming quite the little mover - he has to touch EVERYTHING! Before I know it, he's going to be walking. I love my job - I think being a mom is the best job ever. It's so rewarding! I'm so fortunate that I can be at home with this little guy and take pictures of his each and every move...haha. I never thought being a mom would be this fun - don't get me wrong, there definitely are "rough" days - but the good days outway the rare bad! Thanks again Michael for being such an amazing husband and better yet, an amazing dad! We love you!

Mother's Day

Today was such a FUN day! It was weird actually being the "Mother" - but I absolutely LOVED it. Michael and Krew did such a wonderful job at making me feel special. On Saturday I mentioned that I was craving sushi. Michael, being the sweet husband he is, offered to go pick some up for me...it was yummy! Michael got me a sewing machine for my birthday because I've been wanting to learn how to sew - so I finally broke it out the other day and attempting sewing. Haha - let's just say it's a "work in progress". For Mother's Day he got me some fun goodies to go along with the sewing machine. Krew got me some flowers, a mini-cheesecake, and a cute poem with his hand and foot prints. One of the BEST presents I received was being able to sleep through the night and into the morning. YES, I slept until a whopping 10:30 - haha. I do miss my sleep, but Krew is well work waking up early everyday! Needless to say, I felt special and absolutely feel blessed to be a Mother this Mother's Day. I thank the Lord everyday for blessing me with such a wonderful family.


LOVE my boy!



<3 BOTH my boys!





Yummy cheesecake! (Jen, I'll save you a piece ;)


My pretty roses :)



The bottom "blobs" are his hand prints - I love them because it completely demonstrates his current personality! Crazy boy!



All ready for church!

It was such a wonderful day! I can't wait for the years to come. I have such amazing women in my life. My mom is amazing, my Grandma are amazing, my Aunts are amazing, my mother-in-law is amazing, my sister-in-laws are amazing - and all the other women in my family! Thanks for being you and for being such great examples to me!
