Oh my goodness these pictures are annoyingly out of order. The Tautphaus Park Zoo pic was supposed to be first! ooohhhh well! We took the girls to the tiny little zoo in Idaho Falls yesterday for Family Home Day, Michael had way to much homework yesterday evening so we had our FHE at the Zoo in the morning. It was so fun to see all the animals. Some of the pictures were taken through glass so the quality is not that great.

These two don't have anything to do with the park, but they're cute:)

My Birthday. and other stuff.

Okay here are some pix of my bday yesterday. Geri and Rachel were really nice and made dinner and bought me a SWEET Unicorn cake. But first I have to show you the change I made in my life. I. cut. my. hair. I can't believe I did it. One morning, I decided I wanted to cut it, so I called and made an appointment and two hours later it was gone. It was long, but it only looked nice about once every six weeks. Plus it was always getting pulled, plus I was sick of pulling it in a pony tail and looking frumpy. Now that its short I will be forced to fix it every day. Which is a good thing:) ANYway, BEFORE:

I think I like it. I kind of wish it had more of an angle. Next time I get it cut I will make sure it does.
On to my birthday:

Katy and Michael

Audrey, Zach and Kaylee

Rachel and Riley

Cute baby girl

Just so you know, there were 21 candles plus the 2 = 23.


Me and Geri and Kaylee. Geri was so nice, she got me some new make-up because the girls ruined all of mine a few weeks ago and I was too frugal to buy more. She also got me some super cute fingernail polish. I have the BEST sister!

Helping me open the presents from Geri. She wrapped them all in newspaper.

Lily was super excited about the present that she, Kaylee and Michael got me. They helped me open it. It was wrapped in a pillow case.

My freakin' awesome cake! haha! They chose the most special one they could find!


I haven't posted in forever! Here are a few (actually, a LOT) of my favorites from the last few months.

Shalyce and Karter. This is when we stayed with Keith and Shalyce a while back.

Kaylee reading in the bathtub:)

Sleeping at Grandpa Christensen's

Grandpa C. and Riley on Conference Sunday.

The next 15 or 16ish pictures are from our trip to Disneyland a few months ago. It was so much fun. The girls looooved it. Lily has been begging to go back ever since. In fact, she brought me a penny today and told me she found money so we can go to Disneyland now:)

Alice in Wonderland

This is how Kaylee fell asleep:)

Pirates of the Carribean

It was a little too scary:)

The Teacups. This was definitely the favorite ride!

Kaylee helping Grandpa Howe mow the lawn.

Matt, Chris, Zach, and Pat at Zach's homecoming. These are Zach's best little buddies. We have grown up with them and we LOVE them! :)

At the mine with Clark and Amy's family.

Me, Geri and my girls in Bear River, Utah. This is where my Grandma Christensen and my Uncle Matthew are buried.

The girls loooove when I bake, licking the beaters is their favorite part.

This is what happens if I wait too long to change Riley's diaper. Lily decides to do it for me.


This is the first time Lily ever attempted to write her name. I taped it into the journal I keep for her.

Riley all bundled up and ready to go for a walk.

Going for a stroll

Lily loves to hold Riley.

Lily and Riley's cute little feet.

This is how I always find them whenever they sleep together. It is the cutest!

I did Lily's nails, they were so cute!

My little model:)

I don't know WHY there is so much space at the end of this. But I can't get rid of it:(
