Elf on the Shelf

I am introducing Elf on the shelf this year to our house.  I decided he needed an entrance, so I built him a sleigh.  My mom had a sleigh when I was growing up and I always thought it was so cool.  I do think I  might like mine better!

And look how stinking cute Aria is in it!!

 Smile Ethan
 No, smile Ethan

Growing our own green beans.  So fun, we are so green and earth friendly!

The kids love to come cuddle with Aria in the morning

Finally cool enough to camp outside.  I am not brave enough to actually leave the house with a baby yet! So we practice in the backyard, which the kids love.

This just makes it all ok.

Charles told the kids he would take them to Disneyland if they did their fitness.  Pushups and situps every day.

Super fun and super fast.  My kids love their Captain America and Mighty Knights shield (Backyardigans)

Audrey always begs to feed Aria.  She loves being such a little mommy
 This is her holding Aria like shes gonna give her a burp.

We got to spend labor day with our good friends in Logan UT.  They have a backyard without a fence and real food growing in their garden.  So weird and country like!

 We got to go out on the boat and my kids were in Heaven.  It was so fun.  Even Ethan got on the tube which I was so impressed with because he HATES cold water.

Aria 8 weeks

We are so grateful for this little girl.  And I am grateful to the Lord for sending a reprieve almost always following one of those moments where I think I just can't handle it.  She is doing a super champ job at night and is settling down to more a schedule during the day even.  She is smiling and already starting to make sounds and talk.  It makes me love her all the more.  A mothers heart just soars for those little moments.  

Blessing Day

Blessing Day is such a special time.  I am grateful to all that came and made this a super special day for our little girl. 


 I was going to use my blessing dress and spruce it up a little or something, but it was the old 80's style when they apparently  thought all babies were balloons.  So I ended up doing a onsie dress.  I didn't have time to find a cute onsie, but I think this came together pretty well.  They only wear it once right?
