So a lot has been going on lately, which is a direct result for why I have been absent in the blogging sphere for a while. Just to get caught up, here are a few things that have been going on lately!
Gavin started Preschool! He loves his teacher and refers to her as Mrs. Miss Kerry. She is such a wonderful teacher and Gavin asks every day whether or not he gets to go see her. She does such cute things with them and Gavin is learning a lot!
Hayden is all over the place and is walking really well....in fact he is practically running after Gavin these days. He is in that delightful, "I wanna get into everything" stage and is also learning how to climb up on things!!! Oh the joys of motherhood!
I have gone back to work at Andersen Springs Salon and Day Spa. http://andersenspringssalonspa.com/ It is a wonderful place to work and I love all the girls there. I am there Wednesday's, Friday's and Saturday's and it has truly worked out to be a great thing for me. It's a perfect balance of work and home life and even though I miss my kids, it is great to be able to bring in some extra cash! (Gotta save up for Africa!!)
I am also making hair bows and selling them on the side. They are a lot of fun to make and are just darling in my nieces hair!
Justin is doing well in school and will be done after this semester YEAH!!!
He will take the Bar in February and if all goes well will be working in the County Prosecuters Office by the beginning of April.
There's just a glimpse into the life of the Heap's! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this blogging thing as the crazy fall months come up!

Kids say the darndest things!
R - Responsible! If you give Kristen a task, absolutley anything, you know that you can count on her to get it done and get it done right! I wish I was that steadfast in my responsibilites
Hayden is almost walking - he can take about 6-7 steps before he plops to the ground, but he's getting there. He is really starting to discover his voice and likes to squeal and mimic sounds. I'm still working on trying to get him to really laugh out loud, but it's more of a silent giggle! He is so sweet and mild and I just can't stop kissing his cute little face! We are so blessed to have him in our lives and I hope he knows how much his mommy and daddy and big brother love him! Happy Birthday Hayden!

We look forward to next year though!
On the Friday after Gavin's birthday, he had Scooby Doo party with his all his boy cousins and a good friend David. We blew up my in-laws waterslide and had pizza and cake and ice cream. I think all of the kids had a really fun time and I was pretty glad when it was all over!
I can only hope that Gavin had a good time and knows how much we love him and are so happy that he is in our lives!
I was pretty proud of this cake. I think it's the best one I have done so far!
The night before his birthday we invited his cousing Gannon over for a sleepover. They had fun watching The Bee Movie and snacking on popcorn.
On his actual birthday, I took he and Gannon to McDonalds for lunch and then he and the rest of his cousins, wento out to The "Jungle" Cafe' to see the crocodile and fish. Gavin loves this place and has been on several occasions with his Grandma and Grandpa Heap and he talks about it constantly.
That night, we got my sister to watch Hayden while we took Gavin out for a special evening with just mom and dad. We took him to his favorite restaraunt, Mi Amigos and then for a donut and Krispy Kreme's. All in all he had a very fun-filled day.

Gavin has really gotten into the Sword in the Stone lately. (It seems sad to me that all of Gavin's interests revolve around movies - oh well) A few Sundays ago, I decided to help Gavin kind of create his own sword in the stone. It's really quite ghetto but he enjoyed it and felt pretty cool pulling the sword out of his homemade stone.

Why don't I know the songs? Because ever since I got married to Justin, I have found myslef listening to more and more talk radio. And, if it's not talk radio, it's a c.d. (usually Wicked). Not only that, in my opinion, there just isn't anything good on the radio anymore. I was able to prove my case the other day.
I was driving home from another fun swimming excursion at Rachel's parents house when I decided, just for the fun of it, to turn the radio to FM. The first song that comes on have the following lyrics as the chorus,
I kissed a girl and I liked it The taste of her cherry chapstick I kissed a girl just to try it I hope my boyfriend don't mind it It felt so wrong It felt so right Don't mean I'm in love tonight I kissed a girl and I liked it I liked it
(If you are so inclined, although I don't know why you would be, the rest of the lyrics are just as horrible and can be viewed at http://www.lyriczz.com/lyriczz.php?songid=59497)
I was astonished and immediately called Kristen proclaiming that this song is a prime example of why I don't listen to the radio. I was appalled to hear such lyrics being spouted out on the radio that our hsubands, children and family are listening to. I vowed to myslef that day that I will stick to my good, clean, talk radio!!

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly children heal. It hasn't even been a week since the tragic Drano incedent and look how much better Hayden's little legs are!
I am so greatful that we have the kind of knowledge in medicine that we have today and that what could have left horrible scarring, almost looks like it didn't happen at all! We are so blessed and I am greatful to my Father in Heaven for blessing Hayden with a quick recovery!
