Friday night

These are a perfect example of Friday nights at our house. Hanging out at at home...daddy wrestling with the girls. I love my husband...he is such a great daddy. The lighting is pretty bad, and they are a bit on the grainy side, but I wanted to share them anyway. Anna took the last photo. She loves taking pictures.

And then there were two...

Another tooth bit the dust two days after the first. She wiggles all of them now to see which will be next.

Weekend Sealing

Here are just a few pictures from my brother's sealing in the SLC temple on Saturday. It was a beautiful ceremony. The middle shot was taken by my almost 4 year old nephew, Jackson. I wasn't paying attention as he was pressing my shutter release. There were MANY photos that he took of himself. This was my favorite though. I love his golden locks all in focus and my hottie husband looking on from behind.

Side note: On the way to the temple, we were trying to explain to the girls that they weren't going to be able to go to the sealing and that they were going to wait in the lobby area. I began to tell them that they needed to be reverent because it was the Lord's house and Lainie immediately interrupted me and asked excitedly, "is Jesus going to babysit us?!" Just thought that was so cute...I had to share.

Waiting for the tooth fairy...

Anna has had a seriously wiggly tooth for several weeks now. She wiggled it daily but was a little nervous about it coming out. Paul was looking at it tonight and he pressed on it slightly and it popped right out! She's been grinning from ear to ear ever since....totally excited she lost her first tooth and completely excited to get a visit from the tooth fairy tonight.

nothing to do today

Two of my three little stinkers yesterday. Lainie is pure sweetness...most of the time. We are so lucky to have her. She gets so bored when Anna goes to school. All day long she was asking me if we could go somewhere. She had nothing to do. Ava, on the other hand, has been all over the place. She learned a lot while she was away. Everytime I turn around now she's either standing on the table or in the office on the desk. Such a little monkey.

My babes are home

I'm so happy that my two babes are home again! They were in Alaska for 9 days. Luckily I was busy so the time went quickly. I'm so glad to have Paul and Ava home.

@ a shoot

The girls came with me to a session I had on Saturday....very unprofessional, but it was my sister Jen and her family. I figured it would be alright. Paul was still out of town with Ava and I couldn't find a babysitter. They were very helpful and made their cousins smile.

My little sicko's

Lainie was just starting to get over her ailment when she passed it along to Anna. I hate having sick children! At least Ava isn't around to catch it.

BTW Leah, thanks for the tip. Tri tone heaven is the way to go!

Silly games...

For reals Staci?

I am not a fan of these silly games. Please don't expect me to forward it on to anyone else...I don't like forwards on email and I don't like these tag games. I'll do it this once...just for you.

A few things you may or may not have known about me...

1. I have a mad crush on JT. Oh yes, Justin Timberlake. He is such a cute and talented entertainer. Plus he can dance and who doesn't love to watch him dance.

2. I'm obsessed with organization, although I don't claim to be the best at it all the time. Let's face it, I have 3 kids and it's only perfect when they are all sleeping and I'm not totally exhausted from a long day.

3. I'm the easiest sell ever. I always buy everything from door to door salesmen. Not because I feel sorry for them, but because I'm convinced I actually need it. A few items that I feel are must haves at the moment are the H2O Mop and the Swivel Sweeper.

4. I love throwing away, donating, and condensing things...just purging really. So fun.

5. I have serious OCD when it comes to restrooms. Not just public restrooms, ANY restroom. I will put toilet paper on my own toilet if I know someone else has used it. Oh, and I love GermX.

6. I have a love for all things metal. In my opinion anything that is made of stainless steel or aluminum is beautiful. My husband seems to think that when we are able to design and build our own house, the entire thing would be made of concrete and steel. Hmmm, sounds nice. :)

2 girls

Paul went to AK for 9 days and took my baby girl with him. We are on day 3 and things are going alright. I thought I'd be crazy without Ava. It's hard not worrying about her, this is my first time without her. (not including a few hours here and there.) Lainie hasn't been feeling well since they left so I have yet to enjoy some real freedom...but very soon I'm sure.
