Christmas Pics!

February 6, 2014


Here’s our Christmas Album!


And here’s our January album too!  Here’s what’s fun… both twins have one dimple, just one, and it’s on the right side.  Since they’re obviously NOT identical twins, that’s a pretty amazing coincidence.


Spooky Scary

November 2, 2013

I finished up our October Album!  It’s actually a really good one because we did some fun and interesting things this month!  We went to the Planetarium, on a hike, to Spooky Saturday at the Dinosaur Museum, and Barnyard Boo at the Thanksgiving Point Farm!  Then there’s Halloween of course!

Here are pictures of our cute kiddies in September!

These little twins are 5 month old!  Evan was diagnosed with Torticolis at the 4 month appointment.  It means one of the muscles in his neck is particularly stiff and it happens a lot with twins because there’s not as much space in the womb.  He favors his left side so we have to try to get him to turn right.  It’s gotten much better, but his head is still mishapen from favoring the left so stay tuned to see if he needs one of those baby helmets of doom…

We have some pictures in the album from their first solids!

We just booked our next big trip!  Now that we have 4 kids, it’s harder to ask someone to watch all of them, and I want my kids to love to travel as well, so we’re packing up our big, bulky family and going to Hawaii next June!  We’ll spend 2 weeks on the big island.  We have our condo and flights all lined up!  Now we just have to wait in anticipation!


First Day of School!

September 22, 2013

I’ve done a poor job of posting these last couple of months.  Is it the same for anyone else that your life has this balance and something really little (like my camera running out of batteries) can throw things off (posting pictures on the website) for a long time, even though it seems like such an easy simple thing to do (put new batteries in the camera), but it was just beyond that threshold?  Well, that’s how it is with me!  So I only have a few pictures from all of August and they’re of Kyle’s first day of school.

His teachers are Ms Anderson and Ms Holly.  And Ms East is his reading and math teacher.  I think he loves 1st grade more than kindergarten because he has more time at school so they aren’t cramming everything in like in kindergarten, and they spend more time at music and doing art…things like that.  We’re also carpooling with Paxton, one of his best friends at school, and I think he loves that!

Dog Days

July 21, 2013


Magically, these babies became three months old!  When did that happen?! (click on the photo for our July Album)

We had a really great Saturday celebrating Tracy’s birthday at one of my new favorite places around here and it made me think it was about time to download all of our photos from July so far.  There’s a park behind Lone Peak High School with a lake/pond for fishing, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding…with trees and a stream and a playground and grassy areas.  It was the first time I’d been there and that taste of nature and especially trees and that very playable stream just won me over!  I love that Tracy has birthday parties, and I especially loved this year’s!

I’ve continued to successfully accomplish my goal this month!

Week 1: We went to a splash pad and made bird houses!  (actually, our hot water heater went bad (boo) and Brad worked from home while we had it replaced so he made the bird house with them.  It still counts!)

Week 2: We went to Tracy Aviary and took apart a radio to see what was inside!

Week 3: We went to Wheeler Farm and made boats for sailing at Tracy’s party!

It’s been a particularly good month!  We’ve also booked our vacation rental for a nice, big, trip next June to…..Hawaii!

And, we’re starting to gear up for school in less than a month!  Eek!  We’re starting to accumulate the lunch boxes, waterbottles, a uniform attire.  We’re looking forward to finding out about Kyle’s teacher and school supplies in less than two weeks!


End of June

June 30, 2013

I finished up our June Album with lots of new pictures!  So far I’ve been able to successfully accomplish my goal of one craft and one outing per week!

Week 1: We made dirt cups and went to the aquarium!

Week 2: We made sun catchers and went to Chuck e Cheese!

Week 3: We made star lanterns and went to the zoo!

Week 4: We made collecting boxes and went collecting in the canyon!

I feel it’s a victory for moms of newborn twins everywhere!

Check out our cute pics!

Cool Pics

I finally got around to taking photos off the camera!

In the May album you can look forward to: Evan’s first bath! (he loved it!), Claire’s first bath! (she hated it…still does), a bunch of pictures of Claire in my favorite outfit of hers (from Melissa), and Kyle’s kindergarten graduation!

May 2013 Album

Don’t hold me to it, but I feel like it’d be so easy to fall into the sit at home taking care of babies trap, and who could blame me? But to make for a more fun summer for Kyle and Joel, I made a goal of one fun excursion per week and one craft per week. I think…I hope…I can manage that….right?

So in the June album (so far) you can look forward to: our trip to the aquarium (why yes I did take all four kids by myself! yay me!…well, and then Tracy came!), our craft of the week (dirt cups), and playing with bows with Claire
