A little bit of blog

Here are some pictures I got this week of the kids that I thought were pretty cute and blog worthy.

Patrick wanted to hold Elena and these are pretty dang cute.

We were all watching a movie together and both the kids wanted to sit with Daddy
We went over to the Buntings for a little BBQ for the Holiday last Monday and Elena and Sarah got to play together. Im pretty sure they were having girl talk while they sat in the bean bag together.


These are videos I got of the kids. Most of them are Elena because of all the fun cute things she is learning to do and I need to document EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
This is her laughing at Patrick....again.

Here is Patrick performing for us while we were trying to watch a movie at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Here is what Jesus got Elena to do while he was feeding her cereal one night. It was pretty funny.

This is her other little trick, very cute. Can you tell that Patrick got a little jealous of all her camera time?

Photo catchup

I need to play a little catch up with my photos. I have taken quite a few but I couldnt find my camera charger so here they are in all their glory.

Elena got her ears pierced in Utah after we had our family pictures taken. I had everyone there for moral support because I cried more than she did. I was such a baby.
Here she is just being dang cute but she is always so happy and excited.
Sara finished her internship at the hospital in St. George and now she is home for awhile until she passes her test to work in a lab. Its great to have her home again. And yes we are hanging out in the bathroom.
He is the epitome of fashion, you will definitely see this on the runways next season.
Elena started on cereal this month, I cant handle it. I know I could wait until 6 months but I dont want to hold her back because I'm sentimental.

A big boy and his bed. When we got home from Utah and Patrick got up the next morning and climbed out of his crib and came out and said "I'm awake" so we decided it was time for a big boy bed so he didnt crack his head open climbing out of the crib. He only had two bad nights. One night he cried and came to get me but went right back to bed. The next bad night, Jesus got up for a glass of water and heard snoring coming from the front room. Patrick had wandered out into the front room and fallen asleep on the floor. That same morning Jesus got up and found Patrick asleep on the floor in our room by our closet. I even checked on Elena 5 minutes before and didnt even see him there. We have told him that he needs to wait until we are up before he comes out of his room and now he wont even get out of bed until we get him.
Patrick likes to join Elena on the floor from time to time.
Elena has gotten so big. She can now roll from her tummy to her back and from her back onto her side. One more month and she will be rolling everywhere. She talks all the time. I wish we knew what she was saying. She is sleeping a lot better since she started eating cereal which is great. We are going to move her into the other room as soon as we get her a crib mattress. It will be difficult for me to have her so far away but I need to let her grow up. Every time I look at her I think she is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. She is a mama's girl but loves any attention anyone gives her. Everything is going way to fast.

Oh the garbage man

Patrick, loves to watch the garbage truck that comes on Tuesdays and Fridays, and our garbage man is so nice. When it was warmer my Mom (when she was taking care of me) would grab Patrick and run outside with him so he could watch the garbage truck do its job. The garbage man realized how much Patrick totally loved to watch the truck and now that its cold we just watch him through the window. But the garbage man looks for us in the window and he will wave and pull forward so Patrick can see the whole thing, and last week he made the whole back of the truck go up and down. Patrick thinks its the greatest thing in the world and Im glad we have a nice garbage man who goes out of his way to make Patrick happy.

My new background

I feel that I need to explain my new blog look. I think that all the snow we saw in Utah has got me fed up with the cold and winter. I usually dont mind it but I think I am done with the cold weather. I want to go out and do stuff with the kids instead of being stuck inside. So, at least on my blog I can enjoy spring.
