Sometimes I freak out...

So I have this thing with salmonella, okay it's a huge thing. I have to sanitize everything that comes in contact with anything that may have salmonella. I honestly turn into a mad women! I guess it is because I cannot get sick, I have James, I don't want to get him sick and Logan cannot get sick either. If just one of us were to get sick, it would be miserable for us all. And the fact that you can get sick from something that could have been prevented by just being careful. It just makes me crazy!
Tonight we had BBQ chicken for dinner and Logan was helping, actually he kinda did it all (thank goodness, he is wonderful). Well he cut up the chicken and long story short he doesn't have the concerns I have about salmonella. So I followed behind him disinfecting everything he touched. I was a bit ridiculous but I cant help it. I know I need to be patient and I really am trying it's just hard when I am so obsessed about something he is not. In the end he knew it bothered me and apologized, hopefully we will both be able to handle my craziness together.
On a happier note we were able to roast some mallows on the coals from dinner. Logan called it our date for the week. :) We brought out some chairs and roasted our mallows. We both eventually ended up on the grass, it was so nice out, the weather was perfect. James watched from the screen door, he would stare at our mallows each time we would come in for more. Our five minute date was the most perfect way to end a somewhat interesting night.

So we have a tiny grill, but it cooks what we need it to so it is perfect.

Isn't he so handsome I love his glasses, so classy.

James safe inside, away from the pesky moths and other night yuckies.

Just the other day we were asked if we had the same glasses. :) It reminded me of those elderly couples who dress like each other after being together so long. It brings me so much joy that we will grow old together.

I love Logan he keeps me in line when my silly craziness grabs ahold of me. He brings me back to what really matters, our family and our love.

He spoils me

I love my husband! He truly is the most wonderful man I know. He does so much for me and now James. I cannot believe I am married to him. For the last two nights he made me dinner! He made his two specialties Spaghetti and Cashew Chicken! I love them both! There is something about a dinner tasting so much better when someone else makes it. Since he was so sweet to make dinner I found it only fair to do the dishes each night (I normally do them, but this just gave a reason to somewhat enjoy doing them). I love Logan, he is a wonderful husband, friend and father. James and I are truly blessed to have him in our lives.

{this is my most favorite wedding picture, done by Jamelle from Cameron + Kelly Studios. I really need to get pictures done with our new addition. Any suggestions?}

He has feet

Tonight my little guy found his feet. It was so cute to watch him grab his feet and play with his toes

James still loves to suck on his fingers but now also loves his feet and toes!

Missouri and Oklahoma

We got back from our trip to the Midwest on Sunday it was a long trip. We flew out of Arizona on Tuesday morning and drove straight to Oklahoma then back to Missouri. We all had so much fun! Mr. J was able to meet his Great Grandparents for the first time. While we were there Logan's twin and his wife had their First baby, Noah. He was so sweet. Of course little Noah looked tiny compared to my little guy.

James was such a great traveler! The plane ride put him to sleep the car was fairly easy for him. Really the only thing that bothered my little man was the humidity and the heat. Other than that he was the most perfect little guy.

We also visited the lake with Logan's cousins. It was a ton of fun!
We cannot wait to visit again!

{My Husband is so handsome!! ....just saying....}
