Here is a recap of our August. I can't believe that it has already come and gone. CRAZY!!! But I am really excited for fall and winter.... like really excited.
Now this month hasn't been too eventful, but we have had some fun days.
I'll start with my baby girl. She is such a fantastic person. She has such knack for cuteness....

Yes she is wearing three sets of sunglasses.

She is a very messy eater....

She is extremely caring (when she wants to be)....

The girls went to a birthday party and Ty was so sad that we left them. She kept looking out the window and asking for them.

She likes to be like a baby....

We have been so blessed to have her in our lives!

Now, I am really sad about this, but I don't have any pics of the twins. I have this one of Annie reading while I was doing Jo Jo's hair (so special)....

They have been mostly coloring and playing with each other.
They have such awesome imaginations and are really funny.
Both of them are wonderful big sisters and care so much for each other and Ty.
They have made some cute little friends. Some of which have been over to play. I don't know if I've seen them so excited.
They attended a super fun birthday party. Talked about it for days.
I can't imagine life without those two crazy girls.

We went out to eat at the beginning of the month....

Dan napped with Ty....

We have been all over the valley looking for another apartment. We were actually going out every weekend to someplace, and the crazies started to ask to go look at an apartment. Apparently we have a free form of entertainment--walking through an apartment. We finally found a new place to live. It is bigger and will be perfect for our new schedule. Not looking forward to the moving part, but excited for a new adventure. The crazies are excited to live there, they keep telling people that we are moving to a new house with three bedrooms. We are still trying to decide who is going to share and who will get their own room. We have had tears over this conversation (by Jo Jo), but most the time the crazies get all excited over who gets to share at that time (it changes constantly). Who knows what will happen.
What a fun August. Other than the heat we have enjoyed everything!

A Week of Sutherland

It was so good to see everyone at the reunion we decided to stay for a week after. Jenna left Miss Z and the crazies had some awesome cousin time. Actually Ty and Harlie do not get along AT ALL! I have no idea why this is, because she is really sweet with Kix, but when Harlie is around there is a lot of hitting (mostly by Harlie) and crying (by both). They did have their good moments and it was fun to see them all together.
We did laundry right when we got back from camping and this picture was a must have because my sweet Morgy did the exact same thing when she was little.... Find the corner on the blanket and do your thing!

At first the girls didn't really want to go outside (they were so used to being inside all the time) so we had to force them out. But by the second day they were in heaven and couldn't get enough of the freedom to run. They loved wearing their swimsuits for the majority of the day (even if they never got wet or they got wet for 2 seconds) and got some good tan lines from it.

Jo Jo even spent one afternoon all by herself catching butterflies! If any of you know my children, you know that they DO NOT touch anything alive. This was a HUGE deal!!!

Ty of course played awesome by herself.

The weather was awesome. It seriously was so wonderful being able to sit outside all day and not want to die. I really do miss those cooler temps, but they are almost here!!!
The last day we were there, we planned to go up to Utah County to do a few things and right before we left Miss Z fell going up the stairs and split her chin open. I kinda was at a blank of what to do and kept asking my mom what I should do. I'm sure she thought I was completely nuts, but we got things in order and got her to the hospital to fix her up. She really was brave and crazy and just like her mother.

We finally got out of town and I was finally able to meet my newest nephew. He looks so much like his daddy!

Addie didn't know what to do with her cousins, but had fun with my camera. She took many pictures that were later deleted. She is a cutie...

We had such a good time, but I was ready to come home and have a husband again. :)
Thanks mom and dad for letting Dan use your car and for letting us make your crazy house just a touch crazier! I love you so much!!!

Fam Reunion

We left Thursday to go camping. I have been waiting for this all summer. It also helped the excitement that family was going to be there. When we got there only my dad was there, but soon people started to show up. Only the Robison's and the Lee's weren't able to make it.
We got all set up....

We played around...

We had tantrums...

We had a competition...

Of course my crazies got a little bit sick, so there were naps and a movie...

We also got to be in a awesome thunderstorm. It got pretty loud. It has been quite a while since I have heard one. Jo Jo was pretty scared, but the other kids slept right through it.
Dan left Saturday afternoon to come home, because he had to work. We stayed one more night and then we packed up with everyone and went to my parents to spend the week. It was a very fun reunion and I am so blessed to have the family that I have.

Me to Annie: What do you want to be when you get older?
Annie: Go to school. (She can't wait to go to Kindergarten.)
Me: Well what do you want to go to school to be?
Annie: Cinderella.
Me: You can't become a Cinderella at school.
Annie: Oh. What can I do?
Me: A doctor, lawyer, teacher, singer, dancer, astronomer.
Annie: I want to be a dancer.
Me: A dancer huh?!
Annie: Yeah I love to be a dancer. Jo Jo what do you want to do?
Me: Jo Jo what do you want to be when you get older?
Jo Jo: Ummmmmmm....
Me: You can be a lawyer, a doctor, teacher, musician, singer, dancer, police officer, fireman, zoologist.
Jo Jo & Annie: What is that?
Me: They work with animals.
Annie: I want to be that.
Me: That would mean that you will have to touch and be with animals all the time.
Annie: Oh.... I want to be a dancer.
Jo Jo: I want to be what Annie is.
Annie: I am going to be a dancer.
Jo Jo: Oh. I'm going to be a dancer too.

A little bit later, Jo Jo changed her career of choice to be a singer. All afternoon Jo Jo was singing made up songs and Annie was dancing to them.
