Catching Up.

Apparently I need to get blogging some more according to my sister. So here is an update of things I have wanted to put up, but have not had the time.







This is Ayla's friend, Taylor, that I watch every other Friday. They were born only two days appart from each other. It has been really good to have someone over for Ayla to learn to share and be nice too. It looks like they are fighting in the picture, but Ayla is just laughing at Taylor. Anyway, they have become quite the friends. They even look for each other in sacrament. It is pretty cute.





We had some pretty bad wind last Monday night. I had told Jord that he should not park under the basketball hoop because the pole wasn't looking very good. Well he didn't really listen to me. Luckily for him i woke up Tuesday morning to find that the basketball hoop hand been blown over, but it didn't fall completely. I took the picture after I told him to move the car of course. I ended up getting him a new one for an early father's day gift. Hopefully we can get it up this week.






We went camping for Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't too bad. It rained the first couple of days off and on. Sunday was awesome. Ayla's three favorite things were the seesaw, grandpa putting her up in the tree, and Hemi's kennel. She was such a little monkey. She didn't even want to come down out of the tree. Then when Conner saw Ayla in the kennel he thought it would be fun if they were both in there with Hemi locked in. I can't believe they all fit in there, but they had fun. At least the kids did. I can't really speak for Hemi. Jordan and Jimmy spent way too much time trying to recreate a Little House on the Prarie seen with the dogs. Hey, whatever makes them happy. We did the usual, like playing games and just hanging out. We even celebrated Jordan and Ayla's birthdays. Jordan's just happened to land right on Memorial Day this year. We sang happy birthday and then ate some cake. Overall it was a much needed relaxing weekend. Although, I have to admit the whole time I was just thinking about the five hours of work I had sitting at home waiting for me. At least I could just relax knowing there was no way I could do it while camping. I just can't wait until the next camping trip. I have some more pics from the trip that I will have to email to you all.

Happy Birthday Ayla!






My little girl turned 2 today. It is crazy how fast time flies. We had a birthday party for her with Jordan's side of the family yesterday. She really enjoyed her cake again this year, although i limited it to just one piece instead of 1/3 of the one last year. Jordan and i got her a swingset and a picnic table with an umbrella. She was on her swing all day today. She can just sit there and swing for an hour. The jersey she is wearing is a Deron Williams jersey. Jimmy and Sara gave it to her Friday night just in case the Jazz lost. I guess it is a good thing they did because Boozer sucked hard core. Anyway, she always has to wear it. She has been wearing it to bed for the past two nights. I think tonight i might be able to get her in bed without it. She is such a sweetie. I just love her so much. Here are a few pics of the party.

Weekend Fun?



Well this Saturday we went and got Ayla's birthday gift. We decided to go for a smaller swing and then a picnic table. It was only suppose to take us 2 hours to put together. No prob. So we thought anyway. We start putting the legs on and find that the screws are just barely long enough to fit through the holes. We end up have to use a huge wrench to clamp the metal together to get the screws through and the nuts on. Then we find out, because the instructions were as basic as can be, that one of the legs had to be turned a certain direction to get the teeter-totter on. So we had to take the legs apart and start over. Next was the slide. We start putting it together and the holes don't line up. We ended up just drilling new holes through the slide to make it work. The whole time I kept thinking, "Why in the heck does the slide sit so close to the swingset?" Well when we had it all put together it dawned on me. The slide was suppose to face the other direction. I guess that will just be fixed another day. So after 5 wonderful hours of putting a swingset together, we still have more work to do on it. You would think with the instructions that it came from China or something, but no, it came from Tennessee. I guess that could be a problem too, since I hear they have there own language there anyway. I have posted some pics of the swingset and Ayla completely enjoying it. I hope the next swingset won't be such a pain to put together.

Baby's Heavy

So Ayla said to me the other day, "Baby's heavy." I couldn't figure out what she was saying at first, but then she lifted her baby up on her shoulder like she was really heavy. I guess she has been picking up on me telling her that she is getting heavy. Anyway, here is a video of her doing it. At the end she says, "I want to see it." just in case you were wondering.

Doctor appointment

Well on Tuesday I had my first doctor appointment. I was a little worried at first because he couldn't find the heartbeat. He eventually did though. I guess we have a little stubborn one. Well I have two little 2-year-olds fighting right now so I guess this is it for now.
