Life is Busy!

Well - just when you think your life can't get much busier - you are proven wrong. On Sunday I was put in as the 2nd Counselor in the Relief Society Presidency. YIKES!! I am the counselor over "Relief Society Meetings" formally know as enrichment. So - life has become busier - scheduling meetings and coordinating with Shawn and his meetings.

Our poor kids...oh well - we are excited to serve where we are called and know that our lives are in the Lord's hands - so who can complain?

It's Happened...

Shawn and I have been discussing Christmas ideas and needs vs. wants. He asked, "Do the girls need clothes?" I said, I will let you know soon. It is time we pull out the long pants and see what fits.

Today, that's what I did. I knew there would be a day when Andie and Ali would be wearing the same size clothes...I just expected it when they were 4 and 5 years old...or 3 and 4 years old!! NOT at 18 months and 33 months old!! YIKES. However, it is official. Today as we pulled out last season's long pants and shirts - Andie fit into them and Ali did NOT. Why? - of course, Ali wouldn't fit into her last season clothes - but she didn't fit into Andie's either.

So - I am on a mission to find pants and shirts for Ali, while Andie can probably last till her birthday with what we have. I guess Ali is tired of hand-me-downs and we will pass them down to Andie now. hahaha

PS - Ali's stats for 18mo. were 30 lbs. and 35 inches tall. 98% (Last Thursday)
Andie's stats for 33mo. are 35 lbs. and 38 inches tall. (Today, at home)

Family Pictures

We had a neighbor snap some pictures for us on Saturday. They turned out pretty well - and definitely a LOT cheaper than going somewhere!!These were taken in our "backyard" so to speak and the side of our building - hence the red brick.

My sister-in-law, Liz, made the skirts and shirts for the girls. I love them. What a surprise! Thanks Lizzy - everyone thinks they are so cute!!
