How Cool!

So we were visiting James and Val this weekend and Val was talking about printing Vittoria's blog. We were talking about different ways to do it and guess what I found out ... The Cutest Blog On The Block will print your blog and make it into a book! How cool is that?! I think it's pretty darn cool. You should check it out HERE. Of course it doesn't show any video or slide show that you might have posted, but it's still pretty neat. You can even have it printed with the comments on each post. So cool!

For Shelby

I told Shelby I would post this on my blog and then the world turned upside down. So, better late than never. This was the weekend after Tiff's surgery. I came up for a quick visit to the hospital and to see Garth's cousin Cari, but the main reson for the visit was to help Tiff out. On Friday we went swimming at the Riverton Pool. It was good times. Somehow Shelby talked Taylor into jumping off the high dive. When I saw her up there, I thought for certain she would turn around and climb right back down. I was shocked to see her jump. Way to go girl! I had to take a video so we could show Garth that she really did it.

Here is a picture of the other kids playing "duck" it was way cute

Nana was able to come out for a bit so she loved on Pyper, and Camryn got cold and Emity was done swimming so they hung out for a bit. And Tiff just took it easy.

The other cute picture I have from that weekend is Tiff, Pyper and Camryn taking a nap on the couch. I just couldn't resist taking a picture.
Cute girls. :)

A Name and a Blessing

We were finally able to do Pyper's blessing this past weekend. Yeah! And what a busy weekend it was. We spent all week getting ready for the Yard Sale, I had my Scensty party at the house Friday night and then Saturday was the HUGE Yard Sale. (Which was an AWESOME success!) Saturday night we also did birthday for the family members who have a birthday in September. So when Sunday came, I was pooped, but the day was great! I really love having family come to my house. It gives me a happy feeling. The girls, Carter, Jacomo and little Bradley all played really nice together. They even cleaned up their messes! :) It was a great day! I love my family so much and feel so blessed to be a part of each one.
So here are some cute pictures of the sweet babe.
Pretty girl. Nana made the dress and all 4 of the girls have been blessed in it.

Sweet girl.

All the guys in the circle. We were just missing Mike. Our chapel is really small and it was a bit of a squeeze to get them all in there. (the bishop is missing from the picture too)

Happy parents.

The youngest babies.
Pyper (3 months) Bradley (6 months) Adelia (3 months)
That Bradley is SO long and So darn cute.
And that Adelia is so strong. She'll be crawling before you know it. :)

Pyper's 2 month check-up


I finally got Pyper in for her 2 month check -up. She will actually be 3 months old next Tuesday, but better late than never, right? I had it scheduled when she really was only 2 months old, but that's when the world went crazy, so here we are now.
Pyper weighs 12 pounds. That puts her in the 51% for her weight. Her height is 23 inches, 44% and her head circumference is in the 11% range. (I don't know where I came up the the 75% I told some of you yesterday...my brain...gone) But she is doing great. I LOVE her smile. She gets her tongue involved and it is so cute! When she starts to giggle, she gets the hicups and that's the end of the laugh, so sweet. She did not like getting her shots and about 3 hours afterward, I think her legs really hurt. She had such a sad cry, broke my heart, poor thing. Pyper LOVES to be swaddled. When she starts to get fussy and you know it's nap time, all you have to do is wrap her up tight, love on her and give her a binky. Nice. I love it when a baby has a trick, it makes life easier. Taylor's was rubbing her blanket across her forehead, Rylie's was putting something over face (usually a burp cloth) and Camryn's . . . still trying to figure that out. :) But I guess as long as she has her thumb and her hair, she's good to go.
Sweet baby. I love her so much. Life with 4 girls in my house is going to be awesome! :) (if I keep telling myself that, maybe it won't be too bad during the teenage years)

Scentsy Party!

So all you lovely people who read my blog, I am having a Scentsy party this Friday, the 11th. The consultant is donating her ENTIRE commission to James and Val. How nice is that? Anyway, I'd love to have a great party so James and Val can get a good amount of $ from it. So, if you are in need of a new warmer (they have new mid-size warmers and I love the plug-in warmers), some new smells or whatever, come on over to my house on Friday between 6 and 8 pm. If you can't make it, check out the Scentsy website here and let me know what you want. (This is my official invite to my family, sorry I didn't get anything in the mail.)
here's the cute Sept. warmer!

Also family, don't forget we are blessing Pyper this Sunday. Church starts at 11 am. See you this weekend. I'm so excited!

School

So, I haven't blogged in a while. I haven't felt much like blogging, but I'll give it a try.

School. . . School started last week for Taylor and this week for Rylie. Taylor was ready to go and excited. We had a little bit of a rough day on Thursday (I forgot to tell her teacher about Vittoria, last she knew she was still in the hospital), but hopefully things will be okay from now on.

Rylie has been SO excited for school to start! Today was her first day and she popped right out of bed this morning. We had kind of a crazy morning. Pyper woke up right after I woke the girls up. That meant I had to feed her and that meant we would be running late because I couldn't get girl's breakfast or do hair till I was done with Pyper. But we made it to school just in time. Here's the sad part, RYLIE DIDN'T WANT ME TO WALK HER INTO SCHOOL! How sad is that. She said Taylor could do it. Her first day of kindergarten and I didn't walk her into class. I guess I shouldn't feel too sad. It's not like this is totally new to her. She did go to pre-school at this school. Anyway, she said I could walk her in tomorrow if I wanted.

So there you have it. The first day of school for my big girls. I can't believe how big they are all getting. Life is crazy. Where did the time go?

After the crazy summer we've had, I'm trying to get things back under control and on a schedule now. We'll see how long that takes. :) Can you really have a routine when you have a baby and a 2 year old? Not to mention that dance starts in a week and a half. But that's another post.
