Meet the Bubblegums!

::Mr. Hubba Bubba::
We call him Sonny.
He grew up with the nick name Sonny-Red created by his friends. 
(? something about a red hat he use to always wear?)
He's finishing his masters in Architecture (done in May-yippee!!) and owns his own business designing custom homes. He is as busy as can be. His instructors don't know he works, and most his clients don't know he's in school. How he keeps them all happy and still manages to take such good care of me and the kiddos, I shall never know. I'm just thankful.
If you know him, you pretty much love him. He is kind, loving, strong (go ahead and flex baby:)), funny, tender, smart, hard working, and full of adventure! I know. He's the real deal.
He loves being active and has a real passion for Mountain biking as well as racquetball and frisbee.
He loves his family and always puts us first.
He hates driving a minivan, but does it anyway to make me happy (see line above:))
He doesn't know how to put his dirty clothes in the hamper, but does the dishes.
He loves going out on dates and always wants to plan a getaway.
He is the best daddy & hubby around. We're pretty lucky to have Mr. Hubba Bubba.
He takes good care of us.

::Mrs. Bubblicious::
(pretty sad that this is one of the only pictures of just me by myself...pregnant)
Me. They call me Kit. I actually grew up with the nickname Krick, but my cousin (love you Tyla!) always called me Kit. Sonny likes it, so it has stuck.
I'm a mom. I'm a nurse too, but I'll claim motherhood above that.
I love being a mom!! Seriously. It is the best. I think it's really all I've ever wanted to do. Plus, my kids make it easy to love. They are an adorable little bunch and keep me plenty busy.
Just a few of the my favorite things::a good book, a bubble bath, a good bargain, cooking, good friends, my family, Relief Society, yoga, writing about my family, and reality TV :) 
I hate grocery shopping and scrubbing the shower. 
I do love Laundry (which I hear is uncommon)
I have a passion for health. I LOVE learning about it. I love feeding my kids green smoothies and feeling good about the meals I prepare. I have learned it can be a touchy subject sometimes, and I have to keep my mouth shut, but on here I will shout it from the roof top or just share recipes and little tid bits of knowledge I get. I have some good ones too. 
Oh and I've ran 2 marathons. I can say that right? Or is that crossing the line of bragging...sorry. I can't even run 3 miles these days, so I'm pretty proud that I accomplished 26.2....twice. 
But I'm even prouder that I had my last little baby all naturell.....Afterall, It was 26.2 times harder!
Before you start thinking I'm AMAZING, I'll let you know that I can't carry a tune and I have a crooked toe. (weird)
I'm excited to be blogging again. I intend for this blog to be "real" As much as I like to believe our lives here at the Bubblegum house are pretty magical, we also have our hard no good days as well. I intend to blog about it all, because I want to remember it all. Life is good...but it can be tough too.

::Tutti Frutti::
We call her Lulu.
Oh my goodness. If the world could just duplicate her a few hundred times...It would truly be a different place. Or will just have only her, and I'm pretty sure she might change the world. She has a light quality about her...meaning she lights up others. I love sitting back and watching the joy she can bring to others. She has a heart of gold. I find myself wanting to shield her from the world, because she sees goodness in everything and I'm afraid of that ever being changed. 
She cries during sad cartoons.
She loves Jesus, and has a gift of knowing the right thing to do.
She's a leader.
She loves to sing, dance, go garage selling with her mama, gymnastics, learning, coloring, reading, playing with friends, and eating.
She loves hotdogs (gulp)
She also loves learning about health and baking.
She was a hard fussy baby.
She is the best older sister and watches out over her brother and sister fiercely. No one messes with them.
She wants to be a cheerleader when she grows up. (double gulp)
She knows who she is, but is shy.
She is starting kindergarten soon and is so excited. We're sad to share her for half the day. 
Her favorite singer is Taylor Swift and she can sing most her songs by memory, though she will only perform for our little family.
She loves lady bugs, anything pink, stickers, boxes, jewelry, perfume, and shoe shopping.
The rare time that she gets upset she grunts and hits the air...It's actually kind of hilarious and Sonny can do the best impression of it....always makes me laugh.
She's so easy to please and such a joyful girl.
We're blessed to have her.

We call him Ru or the Rockstar.
Oh where would I be without my little Rockstar!!?? He makes life....FUN!
He's such a funny little bugger, full of personality. He's full of confidence and I love it.
He knows who he is, knows what he wants, who he likes, and what he is willing to do.
He definitely lets you know it too.
He's the kind of boy who will pick staying home with his sister and playing over any playdate in the world.
He loves being home, and I love that about him.
He loves to have some attention on him and is willing to bring out all the goofiness he can to get it on him.
He loves making up words and usually says "poop" after everything to see if he can get a laugh.
Ha. Such a boy.
He's a vegetarian.
He loves green smoothies, munching on spinach, and eats about 7 apples a joke.
He's tough.
He is very talented at sports, and Loves basketball.
He loves guns.
When he says prayers in his primary class, he stands up, walks to the front of the room and kneels.
He won't clean...unless he's getting a gumball at the end of it.
He has a pretty short fuse...jumps and screams when he's mad...getting better at that.
He loves to cuddle and needs a lot of touch throughout the day...I'm so good with sitting on the couch and holding him too.
He has a very tender heart.
He likes getting into mischief.
He doesn't like being without his Lulu and he is VERY protective of his baby sister too. Always offering suggestions to me on how to take care of her right. Ha. I should probably listen.
If he's mad, he threatens "If you do that again mama, I will NEVER kiss you again!"
He makes us laugh everyday. He is so cute and very loyal to his family. I adore having a son.
He truly makes life an adventure and brings out the goofiness in us all.

We call her Gigi.
Oh our little baby girl!! She is the cutest thing around!
One word to describe her at 15 months old....DIVA!!!
She pretty much rules the roost around here. Always being held, always has 3 sippy cups to choose from, screeches and throws a fit if she hears the word "no," and has her daddy completely wrapped around her little finger. In fact, If he's home, she's attached to his hip.
She loves her bottles and blankies. She loves stuffed animals and believes she is the owner of each and everyone ever made. Usually she is trying to crawl around the house with 3 blankies, 5 stuffed animals, and 2 sippy cups.
She walks, but prefers to crawl.
She entertains us all and she loves our attention.
She fakes choking to get our attention at times...lil stinker.
She adores her brother and older sissy and loves that they adore her.
She loves to make us laugh.
She answers "ya" to any question.
She says uh-oh, mama, nigh-nigh, bye, and shakes her head furiously for no.
She grunts all the time.
She loves shoes. She won't wear headbands/bows, but loves her mama's accessories.
She loves to wear necklaces.
She's a teeny little thing.
She's a little sensitive.
She loves to snuggle, she loves to be rocked, and she gives the best wet, open mouthed kisses in the world!
Every morning, she wakes up starts shrieking (happy shrieks) and her brother and sister join her in her crib. Lulu blasts her Taylor Swift cd and the three of them jump and dance in the crib. This buys me just enough time to hurry and jump in the shower, because when Miss Gigi is full attention is on her. 
We love our baby girl! She is so very precious and pretty much defines the word adorable!!
