What we've been up to...

Mr. Robbins and I left the little one at home and went to the Real Salt Lake soccer game with Curtis and Ashley. The feeling in the air was amazing, all the people were so charged and ready to win.

Right before the game started the crowd littered the field with streamers. They also did it during the game, but not to this degree. Their goalie kept getting caught in them, you could tell he was getting pissed :)

In the end, Real SL lost 1-0 - Sad day :(

Javin and I met one of my oldest and dearest friends, Karin, and her daughters, at Wheeler Farm. Here is Karin holding Javin, trying to help him pet the horse - he didn't quite know what to think about the horse.

Karin's daughter, Addy, she's SO big.

Javin, with the silly Piggie. He was laying in his food bowl with his bum falling out.

Javin before the hair cut.
My friend, Erica, and the 'set-up'. Javin had the fruit snacks, the candy, toy horse and Star Trek playing as a distraction. In the end, none of it worked. I had to hold him on my lap.

Post hair cut - Mr. Robbins says its a bob and he looks even more like a girl, but at least he can see out of both eyes:)

I know this is a little late, but I've been busy :) Saturday morning we took Javin over to the local Mason Temple for an Easter Egg Hunt. We didn't know how he'd do or if he'd even get the concept. But he picked it up and didn't stop, literally.

There were some nice girls putting eggs out for him on the ground and helping him find them.

Once he realized there was CANDY in the eggs he couldn't be bothered finding more, he just wanted the candy.

Javin with his loot.

The nice girls started Javin off with a real easter egg in his basket, when he tried to eat it the dye colored his nose blue :)

My little family :)

Silk Dyed Easter Eggs

I saw this on a blog and wanted to test drive it :) I got 3 100% silk ties from DI (I've found that the deeper and more detailed the design the better the dye), a few eggs and some dental floss. And Javin and his OJ.

I cut the ties apart, laid them flat and wrapped them around the egg. You should be able to dye 4-5 eggs per tie. Keep the white insides of the tie, you'll use them later.

If you've ever tried to wrap a round gift its tough - this won't be a walk in the park. I found it easiest to twist ends of the fabric and tie them closed with dental floss (you can use string/thread, but floss is a little easier to control because its a sticky). Then wrap the floss around and around the egg to get the fabric as close to the egg as possible.
Then wrap the fabric covered egg with the white tie liner the same way you wrapped it before.
Boil for 20 minutes, cool for 10 minutes in cold water. Gently cut away the fabric when cool. I think the paisley one turned out best :)

The last week

Javin still LOVES bath time - he loves to lay down so his ears are under the water and he'll yell and yell until he almost drowns himself. He'll sit up until he can breathe again and then go right back under the water. Silly baby :)

Saturday I went over to my mommy's house and cleaned a bit - the fridge needed some extra special attention. I know she needed it and she's so grateful, you're welcome madre.

On Tuesday we had Mutual, the group that came for the Devotional was unexpected and a little awkward, but the refreshments were AMAZING! We got doughnuts from a place called Beyond Glaze (I think). I had 1/2 a Maple-Bacon, that's what I said MAPLE-BACON, and 1/2 a Chocolate Raspberry. Mmmm..bacon.
