Growing girls!

It is time for the July side by side pictures again!  Already?!? Wow time flies by.  I feel like the past year really went by quickly.  I am wanting time to slow down a little.  I can't believe our girls are about to go to pre-k in a few weeks!  They are all signed up and getting their shots and physicals soon.  They are so excited and ready.  I know they will do great in school.  Just look how much they have grown in a year. (Their hair has grown a lot too.)

My poor neglected blog...

I feel so bad that I got away from blogging for so long. I look to this as a form of journal-ing my families history.  I hope to be able to look back on each year and remember the year in pictures.  I want to put down funny things the girls say and do so we can all remember what they did as they grew up.  I have a terrible memory and I hope this will help keep out memories of these precious years of raising children in the forefront of our minds.  I am getting my inspiration back and I hope to be a better blogger.  I hope that my family and friends will continue to keep in touch and follow us along this journey.

Soooo...here are some pics to catch you up since Nov. of last year.  They girls are growing everyday now it seems and they are learning so much and getting so excited about going to pre-k in the Fall.

We had a great Christmas!

We got new big girl bikes!

And a bigger drum set!

We took some lovely pictures on a sunny afternoon. 


We painted!

We had our 4th birthday with a special castle cake made by mommy.

We got new loft beds from IKEA! We love them! Keeping the floor underneath clean for our play area is not always easy.  :)

We went to a wedding (Brandi and Richie).  We matched the wedding colors perfectly.
The girls' dresses were sparkly and twirly.

Momma made the wedding cake.  :)  It turned out great!

We had a lot of fun playing everyday with daddy .   Dress up, princesses, Hollywood, talent shows, fashion shows, animals, the fun is endless!

We got new Easter dresses.  Don't we look beautiful!

We played with our Easter candy.  Not so cute, but funny!  They always keep us laughing!


We hunted for Easter Eggs

We went to the splash park at the zoo during momma's Spring Break

We went camping too!  Super fun!  This is at Fort Clinch campground which we loved.

We explored the fort with daddy.  Daddy got us in free because he is a veteran.  

We had fun at the beach a couple days too.

So that brings you up to the beginning of April.  What a full few months.  We are busy making memories together.  They are growing so quickly and learning so much.  They continue to amaze us day after day with their talents, vocabulary, imagination and creativity.

I love my family and am so looking forward to spending a great summer together making more memories.

Halloween Fun 2011

Here are some pics of our Fall/Halloween adventures.  We carved pumpkins the Saturday before Halloween.  (That is why they still have pajama pants on.  I thought I could crop that out. :))  We had a Trunk or Treat with our branch around the Chapman's pond.  They loved getting dressed up in their Spider girl costumes.  I also got Daddy to let me dress him as Spiderman.  The girls were Spiderman's daughters so they had to have their Spiderman daddy with them.  :)  It is amazing what a little black tape and a plastic spider can do to make two girls happy.  Then we went to the Trunk or Treat with Aunt Tami at the Dunn Ave. ward.  That is where we got our largest haul of candy.  :)  They had lots of games in the gym including eating a doughnut off a string with no hands (Alyssa cheated a little).  LOL!!  They had a great time.  Then on actual Halloween night we got dressed up one more time to go actual house to house trick or treating for the first time.  We went with my co-worker Donna and her family on a hayride around her giant neighborhood.  There were so many people...it seemed like a never ending stream of kids we just kept following.  We never had to knock on a door because there was never a break in the stream of kids.  It was great fun, but Alyssa was tuckered out by the end.

Thanks to our church family, our family and our friends for a great Halloween!

Cute new outfits

Here are some pics of the girls in their newest outfits.  They are growing so quickly.  They are outgrowing all their clothes and shoes.  They have both grown about an inch just in the past month.  :)  They are so adorable if I do say so myself.

Another Year has passed...

Last year I did this in July, I am a little late.  I love to show a comparison of the girls at the same time last year and this year.  They are growing so quickly and getting smarter everyday.  I can't believe they will be 4 soon and will be starting pre-K next fall.

What a difference a year makes!! They look so grown up and they are sure ready for school.  They learn so quickly.  I am so impressed with their coloring skills and how many letters they are learning.  I am ready to start teaching them sight words and how to read. :)

From these sleeping angels.....
To these beautiful angels...full of life and energy and amazing little spirits.   What great blessings they are to us.  We thank our Heavenly Father everyday for these angels.  To think...11 years ago I thought I would never enjoy the blessing of being a mother.  Now my life is full of laughs, hugs and a few tears and I am loving every minute of it.  Thank you Hannah and Alyssa for choosing me to be your mommy.  We love you so much and want your life to be full and happy.  

Family Photo Shoot

We had an AWESOME friend shoot some family pictures of us this summer.  They are so beautiful!  I just had to share them.  I love and adore my beautiful family!
