Home Made Skirts

These pictures are to show off the adorable skirts that Matt's sister Angela Made for our girls. Thanks Angela!

This next picture is to show you Carlee's pleaser cheeser. Her daddy takes so many pictures of her that she has learned how to fake smile for the camera.

We are lucky parents to have these two angel children. We love them so much.

Here is a picture of Carlee at one month old. Man they look different!

Dear Santa

All I want for Christmas is a nice hot bath. I wish our apartment had a bathtub so bad, for the girls and for me to have a soak in now and then!

These yogurts are so good I thought I would share. I hate the fat free artificially sweetened yogurts. What is the point of eating them, I mean really? They don't provide hardly any energy to start your day on, they don't make you full, and they certainly don't taste good. It is also my opinion that the artificial sweeteners are bad news for our bodies. I have also tried different Greek yogurts and wasn't impressed. Then I found these, Brown Cow maple flavored yogurt. They actually have a layer of cream on the top that you stir in. They taste so good. There is nothing weird in them either. They are sometimes hard to find though. The maple and vanilla are the best. The fruity ones are not as good. So try em' out next time you buy yogurt (if your grocery store has them).

Little hands and feet

Unfortunately we might have traumatized our kids trying to get these photos.

Design Trouble

For those of you who saw the blog yesterday and this morning when it was orange and really cool looking (in my opinion), the reason it is different now is because Matt had a fit and said it was too girly and he hated the picture I chose to put up top as well to replace the one of just us three. So, I have changed it yet again but not back to the original form as he wanted. We will see if these changes calm him down or make him more upset. If the latter, then next time you see the blog it will be back to the way it was before I made the decision to waste my time making some changes...and some trouble here at home:(

Decisions Decisions

Every day after I put Carlee down for her nap I have to make a decision. I have about two hours, give or take, to myself (if Danilyn is sleeping too that is)during which time I have to contemplate what is most important to get done: doing dishes, cleaning up the apartment yet again, reading my scriptures, reading my book, e-mailing, blogging, working on Primary stuff for my calling, showering and getting dressed, or sleeping...sleeping has been the winner every time for the past several weeks, hence I have not blogged or done much else in my free moments but try to make up for lost sleep at night. Other than that I am feeling pretty darn good. I am starving all the time (after going nine months hating almost all food it is a weird feeling to want to eat). Dani is doing great. She is eating, pooping, sleeping, and grunting a lot. We have been out and about this weekend with the girls trying to enjoy the weather and the festivities. Here are some pictures.

This is Carlee's new down coat from Campmor. It is the exact same coat as her daddy's only miniature! The back drop here is a race that was in Hoboken.

Carlee was suppose to be a girly cute monster for Halloween but we got looks like "what is she?" and comments like "oh, cute...bug." You be the judge. It is a Children's Place costume that I got at a garage sale in Oregon for 4 bucks!

Her favorite part of the ward Halloween party, besides eating too much candy, was helping the bishop vacuum afterwords and screaming with delight as the fan blew in her face. She danced, said her version of "trick or treat" at each classroom door and got really sweaty in her costume made for cool outdoor weather. Between her enthusiasm and getting to show off Dani to all our friends, we had a pretty memorable Halloween (and didn't manage to get any pics of Dani in her cute Halloween witch outfit)!
