I had church music playing while we were getting ready for church this morning. Where Love Is started to play and Lily said "I like this song." awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! So cute! I love being their mom!

Michael comes home tomorrow, he's been in Maine this weekend for his Grandpa's funeral. We miss him.

Oh My!

The last two posts are mixed up. We went bowling AFTER we got back to Idaho. I am always so busy trying to post pictures that I never write! Classes started back up on Monday. Michael is taking a LOT of construction classes plus a Book of Mormon class PLUS Building an Eternal Marriage. I am taking a Humanities class online and voice lessons once a week on campus. I am excited!
The girls are doing great! Lily and Kaylee love each other so much! They get along wonderfully, I am so grateful. Lily has been getting better at her manners! She likes to say "No, thanks". I asked her if she wanted to take a nap and that was her answer. "No, thanks". She says it all the time. Kaylee pulls herself up to everything, she is really getting around. But when I am in the room she wants to be HELD... and by ME only! She is definitely a mommy's girl. I love it... sometimes:)

Our last few days in Cali... (another LONG one!)

Big Girl Kaylee! Standing all by herself!

Joelle after her root canal! She couldn't move that whole side of her face! It was hilarious! She's gonna kill me for posting this...


Emma being YUCKY!!!

Bath time!!! This is my new favorite time of the day! Kaylee is finally at the age where I don't have to have my hands on her every second that she's in the tub; it is SO nice to just sit and watch them play. I don't have any pictures yet, but Lily's new favorite thing is to hold her breath and put her face under the water. Emma taught her how at the hotel pool last week. It's funny.

Kaylee and Grandpa

Playing at Dehy park... The girls both LOVED the park, Kaylee had so much fun swinging! These pictures are a little out of order. The last one I took was the one of Lily by the creek. As soon as I took the picture she lost her balance and rolled right into it! It was really funny but it ended our day at the park:)

Playing at the school playground. Joelle stayed with us for a few days, it was so fun to be with her!

Having fun on the trampoline!

Okay so we went to the Rex while my family was here and we bowled while Michael, my mom and my grandpa watched the Emma Smith movie. Bowling was so fun! My favorite picture is Emma throwing the ball behind her! I almost died laughing. Anyway, Aaron and Andrew killed the rest of us with their scores. I'm a terrible bowler but I love it!

Emma (haha)

Longest Post Ever!

Okay, these pictures start from about a week ago and end with today. I know there are a lot but we're having so much fun! We miss Michael a lot though! Lily loves talking to her daddy on the phone, she misses him:(

Andrew's birthday! We wanted to surprise him but we didn't have time to get real balloons. Katy, Emma, and I drew them on paper and taped ribbon to them and taped them to the ceiling. It was awesome!!! We also made him a ghetto Sweet 16 banner. The decorations were perfect for an impromptu 11:30 PM birthday party!


Lily curled into a little ball in Kaylee's car seat and fell asleep during sacrament meeting last week. She is so funny!

Emma and Lily thought it would be fun to put stickers all over Kaylee's face, I don't know how much fun she had though...

My new favorite picture of Lily. I can't remember why she's pouting...

My precious baby girl! With some super cool hair!

Playing in the front yard with Emma

Playing on the "Bouncy", Lily's favorite thing to do!

This is a terrible picture of me but Lily looks so cute!!!

Going to see the bunnies

Playing with the bunnies on the back porch.

Lily being silly

Andrew busted his little head rough housing at school. It doesn't look too bad in this picture but he needed 5 stitches!

I took Lily to the park yesterday. She had lots of fun swinging and climbing and going down the slide all by herself! None of the pictures I took turned out very good, but it was still so fun!

Hangin with Uncle Andrew.

Lily and Grandpa taking Conference notes:)

Kaylee pulled herself up to standing for the very first time today!!!
