Hanging out with mom and teething...

Today I just couldn't resist showing off Ainzley's new shoes her Grandma Merrill bought her. They are so stinking cute! Also Ainzley is teething and has been for a couple months, but the dang things won't poke through. Anyway, we have these long round ice cubes she loves to hold and suck on. It is pretty cute. We love our little girl!

Sun, Sports, and Smiles :)

This past weekend we were able to get our nasty rose beds cleaned up. Here are some before and after pictures of all of the hard work which was mostly done by Kurt! He is such an awesome husband and takes such great care of Ainzley and I! Love ya honey!

My cute little mom or shall we say "Grandma Merrill :)"

We also got a chance to go to Keith's baseball game. Way to go Keith he is an awesome little sports star!

Mommy and Ainzley oh and for everyone who wanted to see my hair cut there ya go.

Okay and now for the show case of our beautiful little girl. Ainzley will be 6 months on the 25th and so I was playing around taking some pictures today. I loved the little outfit and the braclet and cute clip in her hair. I don't know about you, but we sure think she is adorable, but we might be a little biased. Here is just a small sample of the pictures I took. :)

Ainzley thinking she needs to crawl... okay we really just sat her down and that is how she landed so I had to take a picture. She isn't crawling, but she is rolling A LOT!

For Those Who Don't Believe in Coupons

Hey everyone! So lately, thanks to Kurt's mom we have been able to learn how to do what is now called "couponing." As we have told others about it, some kind of blow it off. Well after our shopping today we just had to share our "belief" in couponing with everyone. Today Kurt and I went shopping and spent $29.62 on 36 items. Which is an average of $0.82 an item. The best part is guess how much we saved!!! Are you ready... drum roll please... $109.01! No one can tell me that couponing is not worth it. Above is a picture of all the items we got from shopping today. They are awesome brand name items that we not only needed, but will help us build our food storage also. Here are just a few of the great deals:

Kraft Dressing- $.25
Formula- $.82
Dish Soap- $. 50
Velveeta- $.75
Ritz Crakers- $.88
Wheat Thins- $.99
Triscuit- $.99
And other great deals...

We also had a good Mother's Day. We went to Logan to Kurt's grandma's and got to spend time with his family and talk to Tyson. We also got to see my family later Sunday night and got to talk to Kevin. Both of the missionaries are doing great. Kurt and Ainzley gave me these beautiful flowers and some awesome hair products since I recently chopped my hair off. Sorry we don't have very many pictures we forgot our camera!
