My Momma

My mom is here! She arrived Wednesday night and we've been having such a great time together. Whenever she comes she's always such a big help--making meals, taking Jude in the morning so we can get an extra hour or two of sleep--she's amazing. Get this: she arrived with two huge suitcases. I was like, "Ok....ur gunna be here for 6 days...but sure, why not?.." She then opened the biggest one to show all the stuff she brought for me and Jude. SO MUCH STUFF--lots and lots of clothes for Jude, all of my stuff from my old room, 2 canisters of Pero, zucchini bread, pear sauce, and so much more. Gotta love my momma. 
Today, we took a walk around downtown Vancouver and slurped down some yummy Starbucks frozen frappuccinos - mine double chocolety, her's salted carmel chocolate. They were gooood. 
Also, Mom's been wanting to get me going on canning, so we stopped by a local grocery outlet and got a sweet deal on some cheap produce. We will be canning apples and pears and making some raspberry freezer jam! 
Jude loves his grandma, and got a huge smile on his face when she first arrived--and hasn't stopped smiling since. 

"Hey Ju-Ju, you want some?"
"Here ya go!"

He loves to swing around

This brand of foods is from our grocery store back in PA! 

For some reason he kept dodging her kisses. 

Tonight, we're headed over to the cheap theater to go see Super 8. Rest of America: Was it good? We're also making a peanut butter cake. When mom comes there's always an indecent consumption of carbs. Wouldn't have it any other way. 


  1. This is adorable! Have fun with mom:) The double chocolate one is my fave.

  2. Aw how sweet!! Super 8 was good at least I think it was especially Dakota Fanning's sister :) It's like a modern day Goonies but with monsters ha.

  3. hey i love pero! and i need my parents to teach me how to can. yay for moms!

  4. Teach me what you learn about canning. Also where can I find cheap produce?

  5. i love your mom already. i need to meet her :) I mean, she brought 2 suitcases but only half the stuff was for her (how sweet is she???) And my favorite thing of the awesome goods she brought you & Jude: the Pero :) Pero always makes me think of my mom...she makes the best cup of pero I tell ya :)

    How fun for you to have your mom in town Britney!! and looks like you guys are soaking up every minute together :) yay for starbucks frapps! And you guys canned together! LOVE. oh i could go for some canned peaches, and toast with freezer jam right about now. Goodness i'm hungry from your last two posts! haha

    okay...I've decided that after every post I feel like I need to see you in person and talk, because these comments are always novels :)

  6. So I know this wasn't the point of the post....but I'm super-jealous you get to wear sweaters AND tights, AND long plaid skirts. Together. Because right now, it's still pushing eighty in provo :P
