another year!

so my little man has done it again...yup another year is gone and he is 3! Why do they have to get old? He is one funny little dude and keeps us all on our toes! He is a bit OCD, stubborn, impatient at times, loud, ADHD, control freak and sometimes i hear a naughty word slip from that innocent mouth. He is his mother through and through, so I only have myself to blame. We may butt heads, but he will always be the first baby I ever had and that's amazing. Jackson man, mama loves you! Happy 3rd birthday, but lets not have anymore!

first day of school

Jackson started preschool and I was so excited for him! He was bored and needed a little spice to his life..so off to school he went! He is a year early, but has done great! It's nice to have that time to give Easton man all of my attention. Im also in school again! yikes! Im full time at UVU and I have no idea what I want to major in, so for now Im just finishing my associates and I will make the major decision in the spring. and obviously it will not be in English. ANYWAYS we are all alive and healthy and that's all that matters! Oh and we have 2 very special visitors coming tomorrow and we are very excited! Pics to come soon.

wisdom teeth, baseball game, Easton walks....

Last Friday I finally had my wisdom teeth yanked from my head and that was a mistake! YIKES! needless to say the recovery had been a bit rough and I am still in the process of doing so. Actually, my chin and bottom lip are still numb! Weird, right? hmmmm BUT we took Jacks to his first baseball game with G's work and he loved it! It was great to get out and have a little mom and dad date with him. We took Trax up which is always entertaining! We had lots of yummy treats oh and watched a tiny bit of the game too! Little Easton man has started to walk around. Not a full-time thing yet but he is finally getting brave! I will be so glad when the crawling is totally gone...so his hands will stay somewhat clean. Oh and he is starting to say words too, which includes a lot of "no". That's it! It's all I got for now! XO

Mr American Fork

Please, as if we needed to put Easton man in a baby contest to prove he is the cutest around. So with that said, he swept the contest and took top honers of the cutest little man in town! I LOVE being that annoying parent...we all deserve it once in awhile! Easton has been such a ray of sunshine in my life! He is busy and into EVERYTHING! His toothy smile just melts my heart and I want to freeze him and not let him grow an inch more...no seriously if he grows anymore I may throw out my back. Here's to you, Mr American Fork!

What happens in Vegas...

I met Garrett this weekend in Vegas for a quick getaway...kid free! First time ever and it was totally worth it! It was a quick trip, but enough to feel refreshed. We saw Bill Cosby live and he was so great! We had some delicious food, hit up the MAC store..ok that was just me and the had some more yummy food! We got to see one of Garrett's mission companions and his cute family. We spent a few hours at the pool and it was so great! It was so hot I was in heaven! The hotter, the better! I missed my cute little orphans, but was in need of a vaca! Vegas is always so entertaining and we had a ton of fun! Until next time Vegas...

Summa Summa Time!

Goodbye June, hello July! We have been busy, busy, busy!...ok not totally, but I have tried to. I take the boys to the pool and let them run around in the backyard all the time, because i have learned that sun and water makes for a good nap! Garrett is mega busy traveling right now for work. We are actually going to Vegas for the weekend, without the boys! (first time ever!) I am so excited, so hopefully I will have some good stories and pictures to share! I just got Jackson signed up for preschool! CRAZY! He technically is a year young, but I think he is ready and will do great! here's to hopin! Easton man finally has some teeth in his mouth and is a few weeks away from walking. He is into everything and climbs everything! Well as for me, I am just here being the mom and enjoying it...most days! Pictures will be posted as soon as I find my camera! YIKES!

E's big day!

Easton turns one!!!!!

It's so hard to believe that little Easton was born a year ago! He is such a happy little man and his party was a blast! We went to the park, although the weather turned and we had a quick party. Regardless, lots of fun was had and I was on the verge of tears! Watching my babes grow up is so bitter/sweet. I mean i love seeing them learn new things and become independent, but that day will come and they will not need their mommy as often. Oh well, its life! Enjoy the pictures! Oh and a HUGE thanks to the fam for coming out! MUAH!

10 simple things that make me happy

SO I can be so random and this would be one of those times! Here are 10 random things that just make me happy
10. opening the washer thinking I hvae laundry in there, but is totally empty.
9. Unlimited refills on my Diet Coke, ya know when you are out to eat.
8. One of my kids falling asleep in the car...it always makes me laugh!
7. Finding something in my closet that I totally forgot about, like new again!
6. a clean car
5. climbing into a bath that is so hot I think I need to go to the hospital.
4. yoga
3. junk food. I will probably suffer a heart attack by age 35.
2. checking out at the store and something is less exspensive than I thought...ok it doesn't happen much, but it's so nice when it does!
1. my family of course!

I am going to admit it....I AM BABY HUNGRY! Now I know what you are thinking, Jess you have a 2 year old and an 8 month old! Doesn't matter, I think 3 is my lucky number. I don't look forward to gaining 30 pounds or so, maternity tops, mood swings, humongous belly by 20 weeks, the awkward stares like lady find something else to do beside have kids!, big butt, the constant need to eat, getting up in the morning...the list goes on but the first look I have into those eyes makes it all worth while! Guess I should let Garrett know.....

Boys update!

So if you haven't realized this by now, i blog to keep our family that is away up to date on how my family is....which pretty much is my babies. This is whats going on with them: Jackson celebrated his 2nd birthday on Dec. 15th. I took him to a bouncy house and he totally loved it! I even got in on some of the action! He is turning into such a little man, it's crazy how fast time goes! Now I know he is only 2, but he is turning into Mr Independent! His new thing is picking out his own clothes, every outfit is topped off with his snow boots hehe. Jacks is into everything and keeps me on my toes! Easton Man is 8 months now, weighing in at a whopping 23 lbs! He is in the beginning stages of crawling and is mega vocal too. Needless to say i am just going to be getting even more busy with him being mobile! He is such a happy little boy and he is now starting to enjoy solid foods and he doesn't miss a meal :) Garrett is extremely busy with work traveling around to approve store locations. we are so grateful for the long hours he puts in to pay our bills...and pay for my shopping...oh and for my Land Rover. You're the best babe! By the way we celebrated 4years of marriage on the 3rd of this month.

Happy 2010!!!!

Wow, another year has gone by and life just keeps getting more busy! I have been looking back at 2009, and definitely the highlight in our lives was our sweet little Easton! He has been such a sweet blessing, and Jackson has been a great big brother. Also another year favorite was the blessing of Garrett's job at Del Sol. It has been such a great thing for us and Garrett is loving it! Everyone there is so great and we are excited to be apart of the Sol for many years to come! Of course, I sat down and made a list, I am obsessed with list-making, of things I want to do/accomplish in 2010. I tried to dig deeper than the same ol' lose those last 10 baby pounds...I mean I love the mommy curves! heheh, but seriously some of my goals include: Doing an at-home project each month, which I will share on the blog, learn photography with my sis, be a better mom/wife, and last but certainly not least GET MY SPENDING UNDER CONTROL! Yes, I know this may be a HUGE shocker...not really....but I LOVE to shop. I actually would consider myself a shopaholic. To tackle this task, I will be attending weekly therapy sessions, have a sponsor and follow a 12 step program. 2010 may be a long year.... My list is nice and short and manageable. Here's to 2010...and who knows maybe we could make our family Schonberg party of 5, just saying!!! ;)

Let the mess begin!

SO we are starting to remodel our house and it gives me the twitches! We will be doing the master bath, hardwood floors, painting and a few touch ups here and there. We are putting our house on the market in a few months so it's crunch time! I will post before and afters for sure! Gosh after all the hard work we put in..it may be hard to say goodbye!

Friday, September 18, 2009


So, I thought I would chat about the latest at the Schonberg house. Garrett is working for Del Sol and loves it! He is so dang busy and is traveling so we don't get to see him much, but I am so grateful he is working hard for our family. Jackson will be turning 2 in a few months and I can not even believe it! He is so funny and has started to talk a ton! His new thing is "sorry mama". It makes me laugh every time! He loves going to the park...he just loves to get out and about like me! He also is very into Elmo so we watch a lot at our house right now. Easton is now 4 months and is a very big boy! I love all 17 pounds of him so much, he is just so happy all of the time. He has just about accomplished the roll over thing and is getting stronger each day. I am just busy being the mom, coaching about 8 hours a week which helps me keep so sanity. We love and miss all of our family in Cali. and hope to make it out there sooner than later!!!! xoxoxox

where we've been...

Gosh, summer is just flying by I cant believe it! The boys are so much fun and growing up way too fast! I took them in for their check-ups and shots yesterday. Easton weighs in at 14 lbs 12 oz! Jackson was 30lbs! I have 2 big healthy boys and they are right on their development. Garrett has been very busy at his new job and loving it too! He has been traveling a bit and we are so grateful for his new oppurtunity! Jackson is spending lots of time out in the pool and sprinklers. He has been such a good older brother to E! He is starting to talk and is learning so many new things everyday! Easton is getting so big and is such a good baby! He is smiling and cooing like crazy..we enjoy him so dang much! I am exhausted, but I love being a mother..it's the best thing ever! I have been coaching about 6 hours a week and trying to lose the dang baby weight! I have been doing the P90X and I am sore from my head to my toes! It's great!

The last 3 weeks have gone so dang fast! The 2 boys keep us busy thats for sure! Jackson has been such a good big brother, i am so proud of him! He spends most of his time in the backyard in the pool and on his new slide. He likes to go down his slide head first, it's so funny! Easton is as good as gold..he never makes a peep! He weighed in at his 2 week apt 8lbs, so he is chubbin up real quick! I love my 2 little guys and I will keep the pictures coming!

Baby Easton David

He finally made it! Easton was born on the 8th at 4:30 weighing in at 7lbs 4oz...not too bad for being 20 days early! He had a little rough start but is now happy and healthy! My c-section was a lot easier this time and I am looking forward to a speedy recovery. Jackson is such a good big brother already and just cant get enough of his new little toy!

Sunday, May 3, 2009

Dead give aways that say, Yep I'm ready....

5. Don't want to take a bath in fear that I might not be able to make it out.
4. Wedding rings too snug
3. Going to the hospital sounds like a great vacation!
2. oh, I think I felt some pain! Im so exctied!
1. The maternity stretchy waste pants are getting uncomfortable!....

What's up

So we are down to the last home stretch! I am only 6 weeks tops away from having this little boy! Holy smokes that went fast! I schedule my C-section date at my next apt in 2 weeks. We are very excited, but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with the thoughts of having 2 babies!..but hey we will take it! And if this babe comes 15 days early like Jacks he will be well on his way in about a month! Wish me luck!
Garrett is doing well. He is selling good at work, regardless to the economy which I am so grateful for. He is also being very patient with me and all my pregnancy hormones and we have both agreed that we can definitely take a break from having babies for a bit ;)
Jackson is growing like a weed and is too smart for his own good...thank goodness he got his dad's brains! He is into everything and I can't keep up! It's so fun to see him learn new things everyday. He had his apt a few weeks ago and is right on for his development. He is 28lbs and 32.5 inches, which keeps him right up in that 90th percentile range. He has such a strong little personality and definitely keeps us on our toes! His favorite game at the moment is to be put in baby Easton's crib..he thinks that it is so funny! What a little ham!

What's up

Jackson is such a big boy!

So this last week Garrett took off the front of Jack's crib so it is now a toddler bed and let me tell you Jackson loves it! He feels like such a big boy, he climbed in and out for hours! We thought this would be best to do a few months before the baby gets here to get him use to the idea, since i am not able to lift him for 6 weeks due to my C-section. So that is my very exciting news at this time. I did take pictures and I will try and get those up soon!

Monday, February 2, 2009


So I was a bit misleading on my last post. Jackson will walk from person to person but he is not running around all by himself..yet. Garrett thought I needed to clear that up.(Although he is not running around, he is still the cutest little boy I have ever seen)

Baby Easton is 24 weeks..and Jackson walks on the ceiling!

PS Jacks has started to walk this week! Way to go bud!
