Dog = Horse...I think not.

On tuesday Hailee thought it would be a great idea to use our dog chomper, as a horse, well this is what happend
I think chomper and the bookshelf won, needless to say i don't think Hailee will be riding the dog anytime soon!!!

August, 8th 2011 Brooklyn started kindergraten!!! I am so excited for her to learn and grow, and develope her personality. I couldn't resist taking tons of pictures, but i won't bore you with all of them, just my favorites!!!
Hailee following in her big sisters footsteps!!! I love my girls!!!!!!Her Kindergarten Teacher Mrs. Baars!!! Brooklyn loves her!

Miss B. turned 5 am i allowed to cry...?

"The Bun in the oven"

No I am not pregnant..., but my sister is & she is 37 weeks today! we had a baby shower for her two weeks ago and it was so much fun to watch my sister start the process of becoming a mommy!!! She is having a little boy to be named David Mark Ferrin, and I can hardly wait to see him and hold a nice warm fresh baby, and to embrace a little miracle straight from heaven. Here are a few of her maternity shots that I did. ( I am by no means a professional, but i had fun and I think they look OK!) Good luck in the coming weeks and congrats to the soon to be parents. It's a fun ride!!!

what did you say...?

Today started out nicely, yoga with a friend this morning, naps with my girls, yummy snacks, dancing like no one was watching with the girls, and then a sad phone call and then it all went down hill from there. there is however one moment that sticks out from the rest today... this afternoon while i was working on the computer Brooklyn went downstairs to get a Capri sun and i hear a thud as she dropped the box on her foot, and then Clear as day i hear my 4 year old say "oh damn" in the moment i wasn't sure what to do except laugh, but cause I'm mom i had to be the bad guy and explain that she couldn't say that anymore. Even though i was laughing on the inside, i knew that i need to start being a better example to her cause she picks up on everything!
In other news at the Davies house we got family pictures a week or so ago and we had so much fun and got some really good shots!

HAHAHA for dinner we will be having Beef and cabbage stir fry!!!( i know it's not corned beef and cabbage, cut me some slack my kids and husband would never eat it) But Dessert will be fun! A little Leprachaun is stopping by and leaving gold (chocolate) coins.

where do i begin....?

It has been over a month since i have posted. yikes... Well so as not to bore whomever reads this i'll just post a few highlight of the last monthish.

  • Brooklyn started piano lessons with my friend Berta!!! and she sure seems to love it! i cant keep her of the piano at home now!
  • ( there will be a picture after this highlight) there i days i wonder if Hailee will ever grow out of being really accident prone, but as of now i think not... so brooklyn and hailee were jumping on my bed and well,..."one little monkey fell and bumped her head" ( well nose) sorry for the graphic nature of the photo, but the kid didn't even cry till i started cleaning up! knock on wood we have now gone just aout 10 days with no bumps, brusies, or blood! keep up the good work Hailee!

  • So jon went out of town for a few days to Idaho for his Nephew Lincoln's Blessing.

( this is Lincoln All 10lbs. 1oz. of his cute 1 week old self!)

  • so i was single mommin it while jon was gone, but thanks to an amazing friend we survived the weekend with no daddy and no car. We were able to go to Hailee's friend Ryan's birthday party, and our ward party, and to church on sunday without a single hiccup! Thank you Brady & Berta for everything, and for loving my kids!

This is the Girls the Night before Daddy left! they sure know how to Ham it up!!! I love them!!!

I took this picture sunday morning to send to Jon while he was in Idaho. ( if you can't tell we all really don't do well when daddy is gone. we really miss him alot)

Enough Said

I found this on another Angel mommy's blog, and it describes my thoughts well... "I heard so many times in church that we are all like rough stones that are put in a tumbler where trials knock pieces off us. Eventually we become smooth and precious from all that we endure. I think until now I have had little tiny pieces worn off, but was extremely rough and unpolished. Lately I have felt my tumbler is wearing off a little too much too fast. My heart is very sore from all the tumbling. I just hope that I am actually refining and not just adding more rough spots on myself. I want to endure well and let my faith carrying me through. That, I have learned, is much more difficult in practice than in theory."

what happened to my babies

i was watching my girls play a game on the living room floor and suddenly realized my babies have grown up, and somehow I missed it. oh the group of mixed emotions i have, I'm not sure how to deal with this.

This is Brooklyn at 36 hours old 7lb.10oz. 20.5in.

This is Hailee @ 12 hours old 8lbs. 2oz. 20.5in

Brooklyn is now almost five and Hailee is almost 3! its crazy to me how fast things change right before my eyes.

Oh the joy's of playing catch up

So the month of December was crazier than normal this year, with birthdays and the girls first dance concert and parties for friends and family. crazy as it was we had a lot of fun and made great memories.
The girls had their first dance concert early in the month and it was so much fun to watch and see what they had learned the last 4 months in class. They love their teacher Miss Emily and all the fun things she teaches them, the shimmy is their favorite
There are four family birthdays in December, we have the girls aunt Kaitlynn birthday on the 3rd, and the 17Th is the girls auntie tawna's and she live in Idaho, i promise your gift is coming! the 20Th is my brother Andrew's and he turned 18 this year. i hope he make good and wise choices. and the 24Th is my daddy's birthday he turned 51 and boy did we have fun with his party The Before... Since my dad doesn't like cake we do his favorite apple fritters for his birthday treat and we always put the #of candles in the cake that the person is turning and this year dad turned 51, so yes there are 51 individual candles on one tiny fritter
the aftermath
and then we had Christmas eve and always have Swedish meatballs at Jon's family, and its yummy ans always fun then we get to celebrate on our own and the girls and us open 1 gift before bed and we always get new Jammie's, it's great fun with the girls. Then it's Christmas and the fun begins, with flying paper and laughing kids, car rides to the grandparents houses and the long drive back home in a tightly packed car, and then to clean up the aftermath. we had a lovely holiday, and truly enjoyed the time we had with our family watching our not so little girls immersed in the pure magic of the season. we are also lucky to have a great group of friends that we got to celebrate New Year's Eve with, and it was a blast, with great food, awesome friends, and good memories, and fireworks who could ask for anything better, we can't!!! in between and after the holiday's we had our share of sickies and we are till trying to get completely over the yuckies.
