We're off!!

The girls and I are out of here for a week! I am so excited, we are going to visit my sister in Idaho Falls, and I hope we'll go to the temple when we are down there cause that is where I took my endowments out, so it is special to me. It is always so fun to have the cousins together...and to shop down in the states!! Yahoo!! I'll see you all in a week with pictures of our trip! :)

Fun days in the Sun!

Oh what a joy it is to have warm weather, as I see most of you all are taking advantage of it as well. We have had so much fun this last week and a half, cause Jonathan has been home. It has been GREAT! On Thursday we had a fun packed day....

We went to Butterfield Acers...the girls touching the bunnies!

Daddy milking a goat for the first time and Bri scarred of it...Elayna was ok...

The big scary sheep that jumped up and scared the crazy's out of us!! :) The girls fed it though, I was so proud of them!

Then we went to Bowness park after Butterfield Acers, and had a picnic. The girls found this fountian and loved splashing and playing in it, cause it was SO hot out! Brianna really like it...and mommy was bad, cause she got a sunburn (I forgot sunscreen....oops!)

Then we went to Mcd's after and all got icecream...the girls first time holding it on their own and eating the whole thing! They LOVED it! It was so cute to hear and watch them. They made a mess, but it was worth it.

After the long day in the sun, Elayna enjoying some warm breeze...I love this picture, she looked like the most happiest content person as we drove home from our fun day. I just love being a parent. Nothing is better than seeing the joy in your children's faces. We then went to Cardston for the long weekend...but silly me did not take any pictures. There wasn't too much to take, we mostly went down for the Temple, but we did go swimming and had a picnic. It was so fun! So glad Daddy could be home with us and that we had such a great time!

Happy Birthday!

Our special girls turn 2 years old today. Last night we had a Birthday party for them. It was so fun. For a while I was trying to figure out the theme and what they would like. I found this ducky cake on ebay and new it was meant to be! My girls love ducks, they say quack quack all the time, and it was their first sound. I was so excited to make it and then bring it out to them. They loved and and started saying "quack, quack". What they loved even more was blowing out the candles, I think we did it four times! Their little faces were so cute! (sad no pictures of it).

Their best friend Jacey was able to come, and little Jaclyn. Also most of Jonathan's family and My Mom and brother. It was so fun! All these little kids running around, I actually really enjoyed it! And all the presants they received were so perfect, we just love them all, and thank you all so much for such kindness!The beheaded duck!!! Ahh, me and my Mom had a good laugh at this. The girls got to eat the head...but didn't want too much of it. They just liked the fruit Grandma brought! :)

How thankful I am for my daughters. Truley everytime I think of them and the blessing they are in my life, I start to get teary eyed. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for them...but it just doesn't feel enough. They are really the sweetest spirits, they make me laugh, they are such a joy to be around. I can't believe 2 years ago today they were brought into this world so healthy and whole, which is more than I could every ask for! My sweets I love you!

This is my little girl that likes to dress up...and in many interesting things as well. The first couple of pictures is so funny. She always wants shoes on and then she found the touque and wanted to put that on...she looked so cute! And she always likes to wear mommys high heel shoes. It is so fun to see how they really are "girly" naturally it comes. It's so great!
