Something to Make you Smile

I have posted this video before but it was over two years ago.  I just want to bring some laughter to your day and make you smile.  Again as a disclaimer:  Please disregard the disaster that was our home at the time.  New baby and full time job didn't leave a lot of time for cleaning.

Now here is Sidda and the Ice Cream...

Sidda was a whole two and a half when she did this.  MJ was very new.  Less than 2 months old.  And here they are now.  Sidda is 7 and MJ will be 5 in less than a month.  Man where does the time go?

Anya is 3 Months Old

It absolutely blows my mind that Anya is 3 months old.  I have such mixed feelings about her getting older.  I feel like she has always been apart of our family and like she just got here.  I can't believe how big she has gotten.  And she is getting more expressive.  She smiles a lot more now and is starting to recognize people more.  She loves to watch her mobile when she is in her cradle and is now noticing her toys more.  She talks when she sees herself in the mirror.  She is amazing.

Sidda and MJ are pretty amazing also.  MJ has graduated from preschool and is all gung-ho for kindergarten to start in the fall.  Sidda is a week away from finishing 1st grade with K12.  All my babies are growing too quickly.

I love how well my kids get along and how much they enjoy each other.  They do fight and get irritated but over all they are friends.  It's one of the best things ever.

Anderson Dairy

Anderson Dairy is a pretty awesome place!  They do free tours for groups and let you come a check out how our milk and ice cream is packaged.  We went on the tour this past week.  It was great fun!  They have a whole little show for the kids and ends with free ice cream.  Could anything be better than free ice cream?

 It really was a fabulous time!  It's always nice to have a different activity for the kids and get to have some extra adult time with friends!

Family Pictures

This week we took an adventure out to Eldorado Canyon to take some family pictures.  We used Photos by Adena.  She an awesome photographer and our pictures turned out amazing!

She captured our family so wonderfully!  The pictures are beautiful and really made my week when I was able to see them.  I was amazed at how she was able to catch pictures of all the kids personalities  She even got a great one of Anya's big blue eyes.  Sidda and MJ had a blast.  Thank you so much Adena!
