Profiles and Earings

I wanted to see the girls profiles. Lilia held still and Elayna did not.
Daddy got them new earings! They will wear these earings a long time.

Visit with Uncle Josh and Aunt Lin

We love seeing our Uncle Josh and Aunt Lin! Lilia was talking about it for two days. We had a great dinner together, thanks to Momma (grandma R). We just talked and looked at pictures. The girls got to play with play dough and that kept them busy for awhile. We are excited to see them again, soon.

Banana Cupcakes

We had a fun treat today. The girls helped. They peeled the banana slices, decorated with sprinkles and put chocolate chips on top. Lilia ate hers and Elayna tried to lick all good stuff off and leave banana behind. Ours were not picture perfect but the girls had great time preparing and eating their treat. The girls were picture perfect! These will work great with a tea party! That will be tomorrow.
This idea came from Family Fun magazine, October 2013 pg 44.
I love this magazine!

My Girls Tent versus Mommy's Tent

I was busy cleaning and the girls decided to make their own tent. They tipped over the rocking chair, ridding horse and very small table. They could barely crawl inside and did not have much room. I decided to help after they asked. Mommy's tents are roomier! They had fun playing and Lilia later fell asleep in the tent. I had to wake her, so she would sleep at night.

My Mom

My mom came for short visit. I love having her here. We got a lot dine. She helped watch my kids while I was at temple. We made apple sauce, canned apples and dehydrated some apples. Helped with primary and played the piano for a song the children sang in Relief Society. She always helps with dishes and cleaning up. Helped watch the girls and went everywhere with us.
Love you Mom!

*Elayna did not want to sit for the picture because she had dirty diaper. Don't blame her!

New Blankies/Softies

My mom brought a gift from aunt Cris for the girls. They love their new blankies. Elayna would not sit still for picture. She kept playing with her new blankie.

Awesome Day at Temple!

On Friday I spent the day at the temple with a wonderful family and friends. We are so happy for them.
This is what life is about and makes things easier with happy moments.

Grandma H. Reading to the Girls

My mom read to us all the time. She would read to my younger brothers and my brother and I as teenagers would end up in the room listening as well.
I am trying to read to my girls as well. They love going to library and we have a lot of books.
I think grandma H. read two or three books. The girls had a great time.

Naps and No Naps

Lilia takes a nap but Elayna refuses. I let Lilia sleep for about an hour and then she is good. If I can get Elayna to do the same she is fine as well. If Lilia does not take a nap she will fall asleep at dinner time at the table. It has happened and is amazing to watch. She can hurt herself as her head hits the table. We usually catch her or put her to bed and make sure she does not have food in her mouth. This has only happened a few times. Elayna us an energized bunny. She keeps on going and them crashes. She does not fall asleep in her car seat and prefers her bed.
Love our girls and their sleeping habits.
