We made it! I got a little teary when I was taking their pictures, but I didn't cry. I think tomorrow will be different. Today was kinda like they were just at a play date or something. We will see what tomorrow brings.
Anyways, the girls had a blast and love their teacher.
The first day was a Success!!

Treats and Friends

When we were on our way home from Mt. Charleston last week we talked about going back up before school started and have some friends go up with us.
And that is exactly what we did. Everyone brought treats and we had so much fun and enjoyed the weather. It was 30 degrees cooler than the valley!! Actually we ended up leaving because it started to pour on us. Heavenly! I love the rain. :)
The kids had a blast and you could tell by how dirty they all got.

I love all these families. We definitely need to do it again. So fun!

The girls went to a birthday party today. It was a princess and super hero party. They left with their princess dresses on and came home as princess super heros.

They had a blast and I'm so in love with the capes they got. Thanks Kathryn they had a blast!

Getting Ready

I am not ready. Well I am ready in the sense that I have all the supplies and clothes, but I am not ready to let my girls go. I can't believe that we have hit this point in our lives already. It was just yesterday they were tiny 4 lb girls needing me to do everything for them.

Now they are such independent, happy, crazy girls that do almost everything by themselves (which I do love).

We have had more arguing and fighting lately between the twins and Ty and they need something else to do. They are ready.
We've gotten all of the supplies needed (kinda sucks to have to buy double of everything--oh well)

They have all the clothes they need.
And we had a fun day at the salon getting every ones hair done (except Ty). It's been awhile since they had the same length of hair, kinda makes me have to pay attention better to see who is who. :)

I am excited for this new chapter, I'm just a little sad that they are growing up so fast.
Watch out Kindergarten... Here comes two gorgeous, crazy girls!!!!

On a side note, I'm thinking we are going to have a complete breakdown when we take the girls to their first day on Monday. Not by me, by Ty! I'm pretty sure I will have to carry her out kicking and screaming.

Play School

There is a sweet family in our ward who is loved tremendously by my crazies. They ask every week if we can get to church early so they can go sit with them for awhile. We love the Roses!
Anyways, a couple of weeks ago one of the daughters had an idea to play school. She got her cousins involved and they invited a whole bunch of kids to learn what they had to teach. There were different classes, lunch, PE, etc... The crazies had a blast and were so excited when they decided to do it one more time before real school started. This morning they went again and had even more fun.
Here they are

Mt. Charleston

We decided to take a little trip up the mountain today. We got a picnic ready and headed to Mt. Charleston. It was heaven! There was a 30 degree drop in weather, which was PERFECT, since it has been extremely hot (breaking records hot). We had a lot of fun.

We played the game that my family always plays-- dot dot. It was hilarious to watch the crazies, because they aren't quite sure of what they should do (even after telling them). I was laughing pretty hard.

Not Sleeping

The girls like to play instead of sleep at bedtime. (Although, they are a lot better since Ty no longer sleeps with them.) Tonight they came down with their nightgowns like this...

They couldn't get the arm back over their head, so I had to try to get it over. It was tough. Seriously, I don't know what goes through their cute little heads! Makes life interesting.

With stunts like this I'm surprised that we haven't had any accidents.

This last month has gone by incredibly fast.
And things are going well.

Gigi has had a few nights of sleeping 8 hours.
We weighed her the other day and she has gained about 4 lbs.
She really is such a happy baby and is always smiling. I finally caught one of her gorgeous smiles on camera (don't you love her double chin).

We are loving this little baby so much. I can't imagine life without her.
And yes her hair is that dark--with some red in it! Love it.

A few weeks ago while we were eating dinner, Annie mentioned that her tooth hurt and she couldn't eat her corn on the cob. I just told her she didn't need to eat it if she hurt. A week or so later we were eating corn on the cob again and she said the same thing and I got a fantastic idea, told her to open her mouth and I looked in. Her permanent tooth was coming up behind her baby tooth and it was loose. We got all excited that she was about to lose her first tooth. Well everyone but Jo Jo got excited. Jo Jo got down from the table crying and ran up to her room. Dan had to go talk with her and it turned out that she also had two teeth coming up behind, but her baby teeth weren't as loose. She was better after that.
Fast forward to today...

We decided that she really needed to work on it hard and so before we got dressed for the day we played with it. And we eventually got the little sucker out (do you like how much her other tooth is out). She was so happy and surprised she almost started crying. I can't believe how big my kids are getting.
Oh and Jo Jo's are no more lose than they were weeks ago. She just might have to have them pulled in a few months.
