Ellie's First Day of Preschool!!!

Monday was Ellie's first day of school!! She looked so cute and was so excited to go school! She has a really cute teacher and I think this is going to be a great year for her! The bad thing was that on Monday afternoon, I ended up with the stomach flu. Aeryn got it next on Tuesday night and Travis was next at 2:30 in the morning on Wednesday!! far, ellie and xander are okay!! Well, wasn't ellie so cute!~!

Dear Michelle-

Thank you so much for taking care of me on Sunday at church while my parents were teaching their Primary Class. It was so nice of you and I sure loved being with you!!


p.s. I am wearing a bubble wand around my neck and would let my mom take it away for the picture!!

Cleaning the bathroom!!

Today, I need to clean the bathroom and Ellie wanted to help, so of course I let her. She is getting so grown up. Anyways, I let her scrub the least favorite part and she kept telling me that she LOVED cleaning the bathroom!! She said "This is the most fun thing ever." You would think that we never did anything fun!! Anyways, the girls together scrubbed the shower and bath and were really a great help to me.

Silly Faces!!!

The other day I was talking with some girls at work about the point of a blog. A few girls don't have them and wonder if they are really worth the effort. I say yes!! Anyways, I was thinking the point of the blog was to help keep in touch with friends and family, but one of my friends Melissa said she felt that a blog helps you to recognize and remember the cute things that your kids do and sometimes that is very necessary when they challenge your patience most of the time. I have been thinking about that for a while and yesterday was a perfect example of Melissa's theory. We were giving Xander lunch and the girls wanted their pics taken. I told Aeryn to smile and she did, but I told her to open her mouth a little when she smiles....this is what I got.

I looked at the pic on my camera and started laughing so hard...I mean to point where I had tears pouring out my eyes. Every time I would look back at the pic, I would laugh harder and harder...The kids started cracking up including Xander and hence a few more silly pics. Melissa- thanks for reminding me to look for the cute things and sweet things in my kids :)!!!

Oh yah, Aeryn can cross her eyes whenever she wants and uses that to make people laugh...I caught one of the eyes crossed in this photo!!

Cheese and Peas!!

Cheese and Peas....I thought that this would be a great scrapbook page, so I took pictures of Xander eating his lunch. Can you believe what a big boy he is...he is eating alot of big boy foods and he loves it. He would sit in his high chair and eat all day if you let him!!

He has such a great smile!!

I just thought he looked so I got a close up!!

We got hit by the Ice Cream Truck!!

So, a couple of weeks ago, we were out bowling at Fat Cat's with my sister and her family and my brother and his family. We were having a great time until over the loud speaker they were looking for driver of a maroon Yukon. We knew it was us. And sure enough it was. A big delivery truck of ice cream had a faulty door that open and smashed the back window of our car while it was parked. They were really great to work with and we already have the window replaced and the back lift gate fixed....but boy was it a pain!!
