My Dad came up for a visit a couple of weeks ago just to see the girls. He loves them so much. We had a lot of fun talking and just hanging out with the girls. My Dad and Jonathan had some fun going to the CFR, and we had a little adventure trying to go to West Edmonton Mall on a long weekend! What a crazy place...you do not want to go there when it is even remotely close to Christmas. We had a great Sunday dinner with Joanne and her kids. So glad my Dad came, I don't get to see him that often, so it was really nice.
I am going back just a bit because I want to get these pictures up for family to see, for those who have not seen them yet. My Mom, the girls and I took this trip to Idaho in the middle of October. It was so much fun to be down there with all 5 grandkids...my Mom was in her glory. This picture is of her and 4 grandkids, we were just missing Shelby. The one below is of all 5 kids. Jessica kids are Riley who is 4, Emily 2, and Shelby 3 months.
Jess and I had so much fun together. We hadn't seen each other in 10 months! She had not seen my babies before. It was really fun and neat for her to see me with children. We stayed up one night till 4 a.m. just talking. There is no better friend than a sister. I love her and miss her so much.

These are now updated pictures, just taken last week. Me and my girls after church! I love having two girls! We have so much fun dressing them up and making them look so pretty. Plus we can have such girly times together as they grow. We just got these new dresses for them, with some of our left over gift certificates from our showers. What a blessing those were. It was stake conference that day, and like many of you, we were able to listen to our dear prophet. It was a wonderful session, and we felt more motivated to live better, which is what it is all about. We are so lucky though, we have such wonderful stake presidency that are so inspired, and gave such terrific talks as well at the adult session the night before. Great day!

I think I have finally figured out how to do this blogging stuff and I am so excited to be able to keep in contact with others. Of course I have to share a picture of our beautiful daughters that are our world. No words can describe the joy and fun they have brought into our life. Everyone says how hard it must be to have twins...we say 2 is the only way to go! We just love it! However we have been so blessed to have such wonderful, happy, good girls. In this picture they are I think about 4 1/2 months. I will have to now start updating as they are 6 1/2 months, but that is my next step. Elayna is the one on the right, Brianna is on the left. We have so much fun making them giggle and smile. They have the most infectious smile, it lights up their whole face...I will find a picture with them smiling. It is so exciting to think of all the adventures we are going to have with them, but I have to admit I just absolutely love this stage and wish sometimes they could just stay little babies forever! But it will sure be fun with two little munchkins running around! :) ....
