March...so far.

This month has been a fun and busy month too. We have been having such incredible weather and have really tried to get out and play in it often. As i looked through these pictures it seems we play and eat a lot. Haha.

This is just Annie and June enjoying a warm afternoon outside. June loves her car.

Annie loves digging in the dirt and playing with rocks.

We went bowling with some friends one night and had a whole lot of fun. I don't know if you can tell what this says...but if you can see it then you definitely see who the winner is....and that HB might just stand for HannahBanana. The girls loved it and did so good...Molly did not like that it was so much harder than Wii bowling though...she kills us all at that.

The girls and I were in our room listening to Jake on the radio one morning and June discovered that she could climb into the open part of Jake's side table....she thought she was pretty cool. I just thought she was pretty cute.

Of course we had to celebrate St. Patricks day around here. We had a naughty leprechaun visit us again this year. He left foot prints on the kitchen floor, used our toilet and turned our milk green too. But I guess he made up for it by leaving the girls a fun little surprise. We started off the day by eating Lucky Charms and getting dressed in green. 

This was part of our fun lunch...a fruit rainbow.

And here is our St. Patricks dinner. The girls love doing a green dinner each year. This year we had green rolls, green salad, noodles with pesto sauce and rainbow jello. It was all quite delicious actually.

This little girl loves to get a hold of the camera and take pictures of herself and anything else in the vicinity. I had to put a couple on here because they show just how much she is growing up...but there were a whole lot more than this.
Isn't she so cute? and so big? She has grown up so much this year...I can't stand it.

She snapped this picture of her notebook that she is using to tell about herself. Ask her to spell just about any word and she can, have her write it and she gets going too fast so there are some misspelled words, but you will get the idea and find out a lot about little miss Molly  if you read this.

Playing at the park...have I mentioned how much we love warm weather?

31 weeks.

I have been asking (begging, bothering, pestering, nagging) Jake to plant me some grass out back that the girls will be able to play on this summer. I know that Jake doesn't mind doing projects like this, but that he would rather do it all the best way possible, so I knew that asking for a partial finished yard was not something he was dying to do, but because he is such a great husband he did it for me this past weekend. I wish I would have gotten some pictures, but I didn't even think about it. He worked all day long on it Saturday and we are now just crossing our fingers that we will start to see some grass poking up soon. It will be so nice to have somewhere to play out back this summer, I can't wait.

Well we still have a few days of March left so I will be sure to let you all know if anything else too exciting happens in the next few days.

Love Month February 2012

February was a full and busy month...but hey what month isn't really? We started the month off with Molly having her hundred day party at school. She was so excited for this day and let us know every day how many more days she had left. Annie and I went to help out with the ice cream sundaes they were having.

This is just a cute picture of June...eating, something she loves to do.

Jake and I were so bummed that we weren't able to go to Adam and Holly's Superbowl party that we decided to go ahead and make wings ourselves. Yes we made way too much food for us to eat, but as you can see it was so good we forgot to take pictures before...but we sure enjoyed them.

We don't have t.v. but luckily this year the Superbowl was online...so Jake being the creative guy he is hooked it up to a projector and we were able to enjoy the game like this...it was pretty cool.

I have been so bad taking prego pics this go around...but here I am at 25 weeks.

We had some friends over right before Valentine's Day to make and decorate cookies. The girls had so much fun and decorated a whole lot of cookies.

June enjoyed eating the candy and hanging out with Elisa.

I know I say it all the time, but holidays are so much fun when you have kids. They make you want to be cheesy and do the little extra things to make it a bit more special. We had heart pancakes and hot chocolate with heart shaped whip cream for breakfast...

Heart shaped sandwiches and strawberries for lunch...

(3 of my cute Valentines)
And heart shaped pizza for dinner! It was definitely a day of hearts and love. Molly and Annie had so much fun at their parties at school and loved looking at their valentines from their friends over and over. It was a fun day.

The first graders had a patriotic program for President's Day. It was full of cute little things about our country and great presidents and a whole bunch of cute songs. We were a ways back so the pics are fuzzy, but Molly did great and it was fun to see her perform.

It was a big day for her because she also lost her first tooth that day. Seriously neither Jake nor I thought that tooth was loose enough to come out...but she told us that while she was at school she just decided she wanted it out and so she pulled really hard and it came out. Silly girl.

We finally got some snow out here and just the way we like it...a little bit almost everyday for a while but only enough that it was usually melted by that evening. The girls didn't have school on President's day so they were able to play outside for a couple of hours and they were in heaven. Here they are with their snow turtle that they made.

June is just so much fun right now, but she sure keeps my busy, she is always into something...here she is getting ready to pull everything she can out of the cupboard.

This isn't really a great picture or anything but I took it while June was with just Jake and I, which never happens. Unfortunately it wasn't for a fun reason. June has some problems with her teeth that we have to take her to SLC to get fixed. Poor baby, but at least it is something we can fix. But even with that all going on she is still a happy good baby for the most part.

We were also lucky enough to have a visit from my parents in February. We hadn't had any visitors since they came in October, so it was fun. It was a short trip but we were glad to have them even if only for a little while. We stayed up late talking to them the night they came. They were so kind to watch the girls while Jake was at work and I went to the temple. We spent the day just hanging out reading books to the girls, playing wii (we even got them to play just dance, it was awesome!), and visiting. That night Brandon and Mindy and their kids came over for a delicious dinner and we had a fun night just hanging out. And then we made them stay up late and watch a movie with us...they were such good sports. We love when people come to visit. I am sad I didn't get any pictures, but it sure was fun. The girls are always so sad when they leave, okay we all are. Anyways it was a great month and filled with lots of fun.
