I'm using new blog software now, still at my original web site:

Go see us there, and update your links!

Ashley's first day of 3rd grade!

I keep telling myself it gets easier the older they get... but it doesn't. I made myself have a smile on my face, I'm always worried my emotions will some how make them feel bad or that they won't feel so sure of themselves if they see me get all teary-eyed.

Ashley was so ready for school to start. She started asking about it in July!

Thankfully my girls all start on different days. I don't think I could handle it all on one day.

So today, is Ashley's turn!

Of course now that school is in, I'm starting to cool hairstyles again! This one is so simple.

One down, 2 more to go. Wish me luck!

Dinosaurs, Aliens and Monsters... YAY!!! (Update #3)

Paul figured out a way for me to blog! Things feel so much better in the world now because of it!

Yesterday we took the girls to see Monsters vs. Aliens! Not the 3D one, but they loved it. So that's where the "Aliens" and "Monsters" part of the title comes in.

As for the dinosaurs part of the title, we took the girls to the dino museum... in July. Yeah, I know, I'm putting things out of order, but oh well... deal with it.

This is just the typical post, not much explanation, but tons of pictures.


Of course we have pictures of funny faces!


Yes, we have big noses in this picture.

A trip to this museum wouldn't be complete without the Shark picture!

I'm sorry for the lack of posts. But for some reason my pictures won't upload onto the site. It was having no problem till Blogger messed with stuff. So for now, I don't have anything to report till we figure out what's going on.

Catching up Part 2

We've had lots of get-togethers with family. This one was especially fun because of our Uncle and Aunt with their kids visiting from England!

Here's some of them. From left to right it's David (who's diapers I used to change), the lovely Aunt Jana, and Uncle Mike! We sure miss these guys! Hopefully they'll move back soon!
*hint hint*

Ashley and Eric!


Grandma and Grandpa have to be the cutest couple I've ever seen!

Hands Up!

Stands Up! (can you believe I can still do a handstand!?!)

The kids decided to play a game of "Red Light Green Light". Look at those game faces.

Eric was determined to help Amanda win! (she doesn't look too thrilled does she)

But she got a turn!!!

It was so fun having Uncle Mike and his family back for awhile!

Catching up Part 1

Just some catching up on what we've been doing lately. I would have more catching up to do, but I keep forgetting my camera!!! Argh.

We went to Draper Days! It was a ton of fun! They had tons of booths set up, big bouncy areas for the kids, ponies to ride and a huge area of free activities for kids to do!

When we first got there the kids were complaining that it was too hot and they wanted to go home. By the end of 3 hours, the kids wanted to stay and Paul and I were complaining about how hot it was and wanted to go home.

Happy 10th Anniversary to us!!! (that's 3653 days to those who are counting)

I can't believe it's already been 10 years since we've gotten married! Time sure does fly!

As some of you know, Paul and I got engaged just 2 months after we met each other. Since getting married, life has been full of fun, surprises, hard times, great times, laughter, tears, kids and most of all LOVE!

(by the way, Paul has already lost about 20 pounds! he's inspiring me to lose a few)(i think i look better with long hair)

Life just keeps getting better and better!
