Random Pics

We haven't been out doing much, but we have taken a few pictures.

Ty has had her friend Isaac over to play a couple times. They are so cute together.

This is the two playing at his house. I LOVE his choice of dress up. Thanks for the pic Melonie!

Ty watching TV.

Happy baby!

Me and my baby girl.

I realized that I never wrote down this hilarious conversation between Jo Jo and Annie, while they were playing, about a week after school started.

A: Next time Mrs. Erickson asks if your Annie tell her yes.
J: Ok

I'm kinda thinking that they get asked this question quite a bit. Ha ha Mrs. Erickson actually told me at back to school night that she felt really bad that she had to ask who was who.

Anyway, I couldn't believe that I had just heard them actually come up with this marvelous plan. :) It took me back to when I was younger and wished that I had a twin to do just that.

I figured they would do something like this, since they do look familiar, but I didn't think it would start in Kindergarten! Can't wait til they are older and actually go through with it.

I don't have a lot of pictures to work with, but these are all from roughly the same age. I am pretty sure that they are the cutest bunch ever!

And these people.

Rib Night

Dan has been wanting to have ribs for a while now, so we finally got some and enjoyed. The crazies love them--well Jo Jo and Annie love them.

And this is how GiGi enjoys dinner time.

Who's Who

We attended back to school night tonight. The girls showed us all around their room and when we were about to leave we saw this...

I started laughing and went to talk with their teacher. She laughed and said that the girls don't know what she wrote, so she thought that she can get away with it. So funny!

2 Months

My baby GiGi is 2 month old today. I can't believe it. She is such a cute little girl and I can't get enough of her.

Last week was a rough week with her being sick and not eating or sleeping. But she is doing so much better now and is back to her happy healthy self.
She is always so happy and smiley (always has been) and the girls get upset if she doesn't smile or coo at them.
Dan got her to laugh for the first time yesterday. I was a little jealous that I didn't get to hear it, but I know I will hear it soon.
We have our appointment soon to find out how big she is getting. It will be fun to see how she measures up to the other crazies--well how she measures up with Ty.
It seems like she has been in our lives so much longer than 2 months. And yet I am still getting used to the fact that we are a family of 6 now.
We all are so in love!


Has it really been 10 years?
Even though it happened long ago, I remember so much about that day. The images and videos are all too familiar and I will NEVER forget.

You know, I don't think that I have written down what I was doing, so maybe I should so my crazies will know.
I was living in a condo (in Orem) with 4 other girls and all but one of them was already gone for the day. I was getting ready for work (at Subway) and we received a phone call from a friend to turn on the news. I couldn't believe what I was watching. It was so awful to watch all those people jumping out the windows and then when the towers fell I just wanted to cry. Then to find out that there were more planes. I remember I was late to work and the whole time I was there I just wanted to leave so I could watch some more and find out what was going on. It was awful and I felt so sad for those who lost their lives and for those who lost loved ones.

We have a piece of a beam from the WTC here in Vegas and Dan had the honor to stand guard at it this morning. He said that there were a lot of emotional people there and he was glad that he went.

10 years later life doesn't stop like it did, but we pause to think and reflect about the day that changed so many lives. It is our history.

It really was an accident, but it came out. The crazies were downstairs playing and Jo Jo came running up to show us that her tooth was more loose. She had a block in her mouth and Ty grabbed and pulled on it and it yanked her tooth pretty much out. When she opened her mouth she was bleeding so I grabbed a tissue and out it came. She was SO excited.

Finally, a month after Annie received a visitor from the tooth fairy, Jo Jo gets the same visit.

We signed the girls up for soccer. They had their first practice today and had a lot of fun starting to learn the game. They are not aggressive girls, so it will be interesting to watch and see if they get into it more. Here are some pics from their first practice.

We have a friend that started an art preschool one day a week and so we put Ty baby in. Today was her first day and she was sooo excited.

She actually didn't want me to leave when I dropped her off, but Melonie is awesome and got her to have a great time.

She had a great time and is already talking about about the next time.
