Oh, Dear!

Tonight we went out to dinner with the Olsen Family. This year we have used alot of her last years dresses that I loved for shirts because they have gotten too short. However tonight Hannah wanted to dress herself. She decided that instead of pants or leggings she needed to wear leg warmers pulled all the way up. The result was quite cute until she and a friend Anissa discovered a water fountain after dinner. The result was a bit risque. What a darling.

New Suit

Hannah got a new swim suit for this summer. I love the swim suits with the boy shorts and surf shirts. They are especially nice for a momma because there is less to keep protected from the sun. I thought Tater looked so scrumptious.

Wet Summer Fun

I dipped little Gab's feet in the pool. She just kept trying to lift them higher and higher out of the path of the water. She was just content to chill in the stroller and watch all the fun.
We bought this floatie last year for $1.00 and it has been a favorite!

Hannah is learning how to Roller blade. She has remarkably good balance. She is doing such a good job and is able to slowly roll her way along. I stand by her to give her encouragement and catch her when needed, but all in all she is a natural. Must have gotten her Daddy's natural ability with a variety of sports. Definitely not her mommas. :) I am proud of how fearless she is in trying new things

Zoo Trip with Friends

We went to the Denver Zoo with some friends. Marlie Reed and her super cute boys Jackson "Jack" and Wesley and Elissa Olsen and her beautiful girls Anissa and Kat. We had a ton of fun. It is funny because we have been to the zoo so many times and I can honestly say that I have never noticed this cute bear cub statue before. Little Anissa pointed it out and had to have her picture taken with it. The kids looked so cute.
So the other night Hannah said, "mom i think that maybe Jack could be my prince! I think he is really handsome:)" She was so genuine and sweet. and I love that little Jack so the idea sounds great to me. If you look at the picture above everyone but Hannah is looking at the camera and little Tater is leaning in and taking a peek at Jack.

Loving time with my girlies!

Ok so really I think I have the cutest little girls in the whole world. They are so so sweet and make me so happy to be their momma. At the end of a day full of craziness it just makes me smile to know they are mine. Hannah is such a great big sister. She loves her little Gab so much. Hannah told me the other day that she is going to call her "Gabster" it is so cute. She can make Gab smile with ever word she says. Also the other day we were driving and Gab was jibber jabbing and Hannah said "mom, did you just hear Gabster say Hi Hannah Sister how are you?" What a perfectly intact imagination. Our Little Gabbie is growing so fast she is scooting all over and has finally really found her voice. Just coos all of the time. She is a genuinely happy little girl. Loves to be near her family. She is alright when you put her down, but the minute she is alone in a room while awake you know she is unhappy. Then we walk back in the room and she is all smiles. As if to say where did everyone go? Stay here with me. Seth and I feel so blessed and love our Family!

Which Wich

We went to lunch at this fantastic sandwich shop "WhichWich" it is wonderful. So on the way to the sandwich shop our little Tater fell asleep. We thought that she would wake up the minute we got there, but she didn't. We even ordered her fav a pizza wich. Still she was completely out. Seth laid her down on the bench by us and let's just say that she stayed asleep until we finished our lunch and put her back in the car. She finally woke up when we got home and carried her in the house. Oh to be a kid and sleep anywhere and have your daddy carry you all around! The life for sure.
P.S We had to wipe up her puddle of drool before we left:)

Uncle Brian

Gabbie is just now big enough for her Uncle Brian to not feel like he is going to break her. He hasn't held her up till now. Then they came over for dinner and he said that she just might be big enough. It is kinda funny to me because he is excellent with little kids. Hannah just adores him. And from the giggles and huge smiles from Gabbie I think it might be all kids he has a way with.

3 Months Old

Today my little Gabbie Goo is 3 months old! I can't believe how fast this time with her has gone. She is such a joy. She is super smiley and happy nearly all of the time. She loves when we sing to her. Gabbie always has smiles for her big sister Hannah. She is sleeping at least 8 1/2 - 11 hours a night. What can I say she is one amazing little girl and we are so blessed to have her in our family!

I know she will hate this later, but look at all of those cute creases:)

Lil Scooter

So little Gab is on the move. No more alone time on the couch. I was making dinner and when I turned around Gab had scooted herself off the mat. They grow up sooo fast!

These are my latest cupcake creation. They turned out really cute. The only downfall is that I had to use a ton of black coloring to get the frosting right so when you ate one your mouth turnes black:0 Awesome!

Family Picture

Tater drew the cutest family picture ever! Love that girl


So we had Family Home Evening last night. We are really enjoying learning the principles of the gospel together. We have noticed a big difference in our family. We are much more patient and loving towards one another. So last night we learned about Service. We talked about how when we serve those around us we are showing Heavenly Fathers and Jesus Christ love for them. And that we need to do the things Jesus would do if he were here on earth. Of course we sand "Give said the little stream" it was a big hit:) And that it is always important to serve with a happy heart. So this morning Hannah got up and aked me to brush her hair so she wouldn't look like a scallywag. I was making breakfast so I said just a minute. Then Hannah said, "Mom, you need do your service to me and brush my hair." Let's just say I quit doing what I was doing and brushed her hair:) I'm so happy to see that she is learning and paying attention. What sweet blessings come from following the counsel of the Prophet!

Matching PJ's

I love my Family!!! Look how hard Tater is trying to copy Daddy and Little Gab is really watching her sister and Daddy:) So so cute. I love that I found these fantastic match jams for the girls at The Children's Place. Love it!
Gab closed her eyes, but the smile was just too good to not include it.

So we have a new pet. If you can't tell I am all about the pets that live in our yard and I don't have to take care of them. Seth and Hannah went outside to find this cute little gardner snake in the flower beds. Poor little guy didn't have anywhere to hide because I just weeded the garden. Hannah was so brave she even touched the snake with her daddy. We just let him go of course.

Catch My Smile

Tonight at Family Home Evening our lesson was about being happy. Hannah loved it. She loved learning a new Primary song, Smiles. "If you chance to meet a frown do not let it stay, quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away." She was so excited to learn that when she smiles it helps us to be like Jesus and helps others feel his love. After we had finished our lesson Hannah looked at her Daddy and said, "Dad, get ready to catch my smile:)" She had the biggest smile and it really was so contagious. She continued smiling until she went to sleep.

Some cute park pictures! Couldn't you just smooch that little face! Hannah is also learning to climb. Also she is a super fan of the slide.


Our ward had a cupcake contest. Hannah helped me and we won the prettiest. We melted chocolate and made butterflies to go on top. We were told that they were yummy as well.

Pure Sweetness

This little munchkin is pure sweetness! We are so blessed to have her in our family! I especially love the picture with her little crooked smile.
