As a ward we all went out the the Metzger Farm (over 140 acres) to help clean it up and serve in the community. Seth and I felt that it was important to take Hannah along so she could learn the importance of service and how as you serve the spirit helps you to be happy.
This was before we left the house and were still clean
The fun Mormon Helping Hands shirts we got to wear. We all feel so proud to be a member of the Church.
Little Tater looks ready to go. She had to have gloves like her Momma and Daddy. We looked all over for the smallest pair we could find. They were still way too big, but she loved them.
Hannah and her Daddy!
This is Hannah with Brother Mathias from our ward. She loves him so much. They always make a point to seek each other out and get a snuggle. They have a special connection. It is so cute.
Tater looking for the (bad) not native to Colorado weeds. She did such a good job.
All Done. We all had such a great time it was a beautiful day. Hannah did amazing. We were out in the heat pulling weeds for 3 hours and she didn't complain once. She continued to say "we are serving and service makes us happy!" What a great little server!
Aunt Alicya and Uncle Brian are crazy and got another dog. This is Toby. He sure is cute though! Hannah couldn't get enough of him. I'm glad that Brian and Alicya help Hannah with a little dog fix so I can keep standing my ground on not getting one:)
My sweet baby I promise I get you shots because I love you and want you to avoid disease and be healthy. It is so so sad to hear you cry especially when I know it is a hurt cry! Breaks my heart. Little Gab had her 4 month well visit today and she is weighing in at 14.3 lbs and is now 26 inches long. My sweet big girl:) She is rolling over (when she wants to) and is tracking very good with her eyes (loved bubbles) really what kid doesn't.
We were lucky this week to have friends in town from Denmark. Kenneth, Camilla, Lars and Ulla. The girls loved them so much! It was really nice to spend time with them. Thanks for the cute princess book for Hannah and the photo book for Gabbie. You are always so thoughtful!!
Tater got the camera and decided to have a little photo shoot. She also got a nice picture of my rear end that I have not included to spare all of you:) For only being 3 years old she is not too bad at taking pictures.
Here are some cute pictures I took today. I can't believe that my sweet little Gab is 4 months old today!! The past few months have gone by so so fast. So Gabbie has rolled over a few times in the past week, but to be honest I don't she her taking much interest in rolling. Probably because she know if she is persistent in squawking I will pick her up. Naughty Momma! She is so so good at sleeping through the night, usually 11 hours. She is always happy and content. And Oh how we love those sweet smiles and giggles! She loves her big sister Hannah and always has some good smooches for her. What a precious girl. We feel so very blessed to have Gabbie in our family!
We love our Aunt Vera!!! Vera is my Great Aunt so the girls Great Great Aunt and we love her so so much. We get to spend some much valued time with her because she lives here in Denver. She is such an amazing woman and I hope that my girls will look up to her in the years to come. She is beautiful inside and out. And she always brings such a special spirit. My girlies just love her. The picture with her and Gab is from a few months ago, but Hannah's is just the other day! Just a special shout out of love for our Vera.
These two little girls just love each other. They became friends a few years ago, but would fight over toys and it would always end in tears. I think it was because Hannah was younger and couldn't talk as well. So they have stuck it out and now have become the best of friends. They can spend all day together and never tire of each other. Hannah is constantly asking to play with Emily and making sure that we always include "bless my friend Emily" in every prayer throughout the day. Emily's mom said they same thing is happening at their house. So fun when you just love being around each other
We had a wonderful 4th of July. As the fireworks were going off Hannah kept saying, "mom I can hear July, do you hear it?" She is so cute to think that the fireworks are called July. Love her. The Rogers invited us over for some sparklers and fountain fireworks. Hannah had so much fun right up until she decided to grab the hot end of the sparkler. So so sad. Luckily she only got a tiny burn and it felt better after some cold water and some miracle burn cream.
