So, I have noticed it has been a while since I have posted. OOPS. I could blame that on my "busy" life or for my sudden lack of enthusiasm to blog. I guess only the future will tell.
We have been extremely busy it seems and I have been spending more time with the girls and less time in the computer room - so that has been great. Here are some pictures to catch up what we have been doing!
Eating Halloween CandyReading More BooksMaking PieEating Pie!! I have never made a pie before and I volunteered to make 3 for an upcoming wedding reception in our ward - therefore I thought it best to practice. It was DELICIOUS!!
Yes, we have been enjoying reading lately. We have also been attending Story Time at the Library - Andie loves it. However, in this picture she is getting mad at 'Sister' because she is touching the book!
Growing Teeth, Crawling, Climbing, Stand up on EVERYTHING!! Really, I blame Ali for this lack of posting! She has acquired 4 teeth in the last 2 weeks (3 on top and another on bottom) and has one more one top ready to come - that would give her 7 all together!
On top of all of that - Shawn has been busy with school and still trying to complete his thesis. It has to be done this week!! HOORAY! Let's hope he makes it. There were a few days last week and the week before where I didn't see him for 48 hours because he would leave before I was up and I would be in bed before he got home! I guess that is why the girls and I have tried to keep busy!
I have been busy with an assignment to serve on the enrichment committee (no, not a calling, just an invitation to do so) received a second calling to serve as a VT supervisor, tried to visit teach the 5 sisters assigned to me(maybe I can change that now!) plus I get to speak in sacrament meeting and teach RS this upcoming Sunday! Don't get me wrong - I am not complaining - Just Busy!
I was able to host a girls night this Friday at my house - which motivated me to clean and dejunk - it was great. I got together with the girls from Shawn's department and we had a great time. Plus a great excuse to not worry about the diet, buy candy that sounded good (and yes - I bought it all) and just enjoy time without kids! Thanks Shawn for watching Andie and Ali.
