My Awesome Family

Just look at how much they have grown....



I think that they are starting to get a little bit too big for that chair!

Getting Misted

We went and rode on the carousel and afterward when we were walking back to the car the girls stopped to play in these misters. They had a blast!


Then Jo Jo took a pic of Dan and I.


And Annie took one, but Jo Jo had to be in it.

Ty's Birthday!

Ty had a really good day today. She woke up to her banner and her presents and was so excited to get to the good stuff.



We ate breakfast and waited for Daddy to wake up, so she could open presents.
She was so excited to open them.







She absolutely loves the baby doll and stroller she got and anytime the twins try to use it, she gets really upset. "No. No. No. Mine." she is so funny.


The girls helped with the cake....


Dan had to work and so after we ate lunch, we sang and Ty made a wish...


Blew out her candles...


One of the candles decided to come back...


It freaked the little crazy out...


Dan blew out the candle and had to hold her to calm her down, while I took the cake away...


Then she got her piece of cake and enjoyed it!


These are her new jammies, which she adores. Note the shoes....those cute feet have something on them pretty much at all times. I've even caught her trying to wear her shoes to bed. She is definitely my shoe girl!



Ty baby, I love you so much. You are getting so big and I can't believe how fast it has gone. You are such a joy to be around and you make us laugh all the time.
You love to be the center of attention. You will keep going and going if you know someone is watching and will laugh at what you're doing.
You love to have things your way and you like to tell people what that way is.
You are so caring and love your sisters so much. They love it when you give them hugs and kisses.
I'm so lucky to be your mama!
Thank you for being you.
I love you!!

2 Already!

Another year has flown by. My baby is now 2 and has already taken on the job of a true 2 year old (she started a few months ago). She is extremely good at it too.
Happy Birthday baby girl!!!


More of her birthday to come!

Uno Attacks!

The girls had a blast playing Uno today.


Seriously every time they would shoot out, the girls would laugh. They played this for at least a half an hour. It was fun to watch them play!

Overheard....

I was cooking dinner and the girls were in the front room playing. All of a sudden I hear Annie tell Jo Jo "On the count of three stand on my head."
I tell them that they better not stand on any heads and a minute later Annie says to Jo Jo "stand on my head."
If these girls live to be old I will be happy!!!!

Air Conditioning

Today I am so INCREDIBLY thankful for the AC.
For the past month or so our AC hasn't been working properly. It would very rarely get under 80 degrees. I was dying everyday and hated life.
Yesterday morning before we left to have our fun outing they came to fix it. We were so excited when we left the Roper's at 8:00 at night to come home to a cool home. Well when we got home it was 83 in here. What a bummer it was to see that.
This morning when I woke up it was down to 79 and I was all excited.
Then we went to church and came home and it was back up to 81.
I was so upset that I didn't have my cool home so I called and asked them to come back and fix it. I didn't think that they would show up because it was later in the afternoon, but they came. They pulled out some things that they forgot to check on yesterday and hallelujah we have air!!!!!
I am so so excited.

Springs Preserve

We wanted to do something with the Roper's and so we all decided to go to the Springs Preserve (bonus: it was free day!) We met there at noon and instantly the twins cheeks got all rosy-- it was a toasty day.


There are a ton of things for the kids to do and they had a blast trying everything and looking at the animals and insects they had. We didn't go around the whole park (it is huge), but what we did see and do was great.
Ty was brave enough to pet this bunny all by herself.


The kids all loved the mist. I think it is funny that the girl on the left was smiling for the camera of strangers.


The sun was too bright for Annie to be interested in these homes.


Building some buildings...





Here is the group...


It is a great place and we will definitely be going back when it gets cooler!
After the park we went to Sonic to get some food and drinks (I haven't done happy hour at Sonic for a long time--Yummy) and then to the Roper's house to hang out. It was a fun evening.

Another Hair Cut

I decided to go shorter with Ty. I'm not so sure I like the back right now, it needs to grow just a bit.



I think she looks cute though and I think it will be nice for her to not have it on her neck.

Randomness

We haven't been doing much lately. It has been super hot, so we don't get out much. Like people said when we first moved down here, we just switch summer and winter. We spend all day in the house during those scorching months and we get to go outside during the calm cooler months.
It is hard for me to find things for the girls to do. I'm not one of those moms that has something crafty or whatever planned for the crazies to do. I think because of that we all go a little bit crazy!
We do have our fun though...
We all like grapes!


The crazies (especially Ty) LOVE tortilla chips. They would eat them with anything and everything if we let them. They do make a big crumbly mess with them though--I could do without that.



Dan let the girls do a little mopping. They liked helping out.



Sometimes for desert we will mix up a shake. The crazies love them....


We made scotcharoos today and we didn't let them cool down long enough before we ate them. The girls were pretty messy after they were done. They're fingers were covered with chocolate.



Here are the crazies singing and dancing. Annie and Jo Jo have remotes and Ty has a phone for microphones. They are awesome!


Even though we might go a little bit nuts, I'm grateful to have these little crazies in my life. They make up for all the bad days we have. They are funny and sweet, they make me laugh and I love them so much!

St. George

We took a little trip to St. George. Our plan was to eat at Texas Roadhouse (YUMMY), go to a movie, and get desert.
It took us a little bit longer to get there since they were doing road construction and it was stop and go for at least a half an hour, but we got there and we were starving.
We drive up to Texas Roadhouse and the parking lot is empty.
Umm..... What is going on?
They didn't open until 4pm. What restaurant opens at 4pm? People need to eat lunch!!!
We were so bummed that we couldn't eat there.
We opted for The Pizza Factory since it was right next door.
After lunch we went and saw 'Despicable Me'.


It was a cute movie and the crazies loved it. It was a first for Ty and she was so excited.
We have always wanted to try out Spoon Me--It is a yogurt place. They built one in Provo before we moved, but we never went there. Plus I have wanted one of their shirts forever. I wasn't too impressed, but I'm not a big fan of the tart frozen yogurt.



It was fun to take a little break and do something different. I'm just disappointed that I wasn't able to eat at Texas Roadhouse.

Hair Cut

I have been needing to cut Ty's hair for awhile now and so this morning I decided to do it. I set up the computer with Little Einstein in the bathroom and got everything ready. She was excited and she sat still through the whole thing. Such a good big girl!
Here is a before...


Here she is after...



I think she looks way cute and so grown up.
I wonder if I should go shorter?
