Slideshow of Craziness

Read the post below before you look at these. It explains the craziness.

A Really Bad Attepmt at Family Pictures

So Justin's family is doing a geneology book and his mom has been hounding me for our family story and a family pic. I finally got the story in and since we don't have professional family pics yet we went over to her house just to have her take some family pics of us. It was a nightmare! Sadie was SCREAMING the entire time. Whoever was not holding her, that's who she wanted to hold her. So half the pictures she is screaming, reaching for someone new. Justin was just angry, I couldn't stop laughing and little Jess was just confused. Finally, Justin's sister Emily had to put Sade on her shoulders and she had to kneel down so we couldn't see her head because Sadie wouldn't let me hold her. Rascall. Anyways, here are some pics of what we went through. Enjoy!

This is one of the first one...Not off to a good start.

This is probably the third picture and Justin is already giving up.

We moved things inside, and they didn't get much better.

Yep...still bad

Sad, I know. But, this was the best we could do. It really makes me nervous for the real family pictures we are taking July (which we are paying for) Yikes...Emily's head was cropped out.yeah she's down there somewhere.

Happy Birthday Hubby

Saturday was Justin's birthday. We had a good day. We went to Cheesecake Factory for lunch and then attempted to go see a movie, but we got there at like 1 pm and Pirates didn't start util 2:50, so we didn't want to wait that long and then see a 3 hour movie. I guess it was a good choice, because when we got back to Justin's parents house, his mom was asleep on the floor and his dad was in a daze. The girls had made an absolute mess and were running wild. Yikes. Who knows what would have happened if we would have stayed the whole time :/

We wanted to go out and have fun that night, but we had to prepare our talks for the next day. Yes, suprise-suprise we procrastinated to the last minute, yet again. So, it wasn't an amazing b-day for Justin, but we had fun for the most part.

Happy birthday, Justin! Another year turning 23!

In Loving Memory

Last night Justin's last surviving grandparent passed away. Harold Earl slipped away peacefully returning to his sweetheart, Hortence. We are thankful that the Lord took him back. The last few years he has spent his life in a "home" and was pretty lonely. We feel he was ready and it was his time.

We love you Harold. Say hi to grandma Earl for us all!

I guess you have to copy and paste..It won't link straight to it...worth it.

You guys...this is seriously helarious. My sister-in-law Missy showed us this and we were crying we were laughing so hard. You have to have a special kind of sense of humor to enjoy this. I think it's great, but funny.

It is a real letter to someone and this guy reads it in a halarious voice...

ps- there are a few swear words...sorry about that, but too funny. Give the sound a second. It takes a minute to start.

A Great Father's Day

These were some pictures we took of the girls before church.

Father's day was good. We had a pretty laid back day and had Justin's dad and sister Emily over for dinner. His mom and Missy are traveling in Vancuver.

But I just wanted to let Justin know how much I appreciate him being such a great dad. Since the day his babies were born he has taken being a dad totally seriously. He loves his girls more than anything, and I love that. He has jumped right in and just loves it. We are all so lucky to have him in our lives!

Love you, Just!

Time Flies

Geesh. Today my little Sadie is 18 months. The time has flown away! I really love this period she is in right now. I think it's my favorite. Everyday a new word. Everyday another impersonation of something Justin or I do. She just cracks us up. Today was her first day in nursery at church and she LOVED it. Part of my calling as primary chorister is to go to the nursery and do a singing time with them. I walk in and they were all in a circle on the ground holding their own pics of the temple. Now, those of you who know Sade knows she is ca-razy. But, she was sitting down with the other kids with the biggest smile on her face. She was looking at the kids around her and you could tell she just thought it was the greatest thing on earth. So we started singing time and I thought she will probably want to sit on lap....Ummm, nope. She was dancing and screaming with joy and trying to sing. Then when I left I said by Sade, thinking again she might want to come or cry. Nope, wrong again. She didn't even look up. Get lost mom. Man, it made me so happy to see her so happy. I felt really retarted but I was trying not to cry. These next 6 months will be fun and I can't wait to see her continue to grow.

And then their is Miss Jessie...6 months in 4 days. How did that happen? I feel like I was just in labor like a month ago. She is so sweet and absolutely already idolizes her big sister. She laughs and laughs at Sade and I'm sure wishes she could keep up with her. Jessie is such a delight. She wakes up laughing a cooing (unlike her sister who screams her head off each and every morning when she wakes up). But Jess is very laid back and just a dream. She is growing to be such a beautiful person both in and out. I love feeling her sweet spirit. Okay, that sounded like way mormon..sweet spirit :) ha.

I love those babies. Like Justin says, "Those babies make me cry".

Today is my brother Chris' last day of his first year at dental school. He is attending Pacific in San Francisco and is married to his beautiful wife Patience. The university is only a 3 year school (usually it is four years), and he can now officialy have patients (well as of July).

It has been a crazy year for them, but THEY GOT THROUGH IT! Yea! I'm so proud of him and love and MISS them both so much!

Way to go guys! LOVE YA!

Blog huh?

So, I can only credit my blog to Mary Stuart. To be honest, I didn't even know you could do this. I mean I knew about MySpace, but that site just freaks me out! Mary has been telling me about this for a while, so I finally decided to check it out. This is a whole new thing for me on here, but it has been fun learning new things today.

At first Justin was making fun of me for doing this. Then I pointed out to him that I could either be doing this "scrapbooking" for free, or I could go out and spend hundreds of dollars doing real scrapbooking. He quickly thought it was a great idea.

My parents are gonna love this. They are always saying how they never see the girls (they are living in So. Utah now) and they change so much every time they see them. Now they can see them whenever they want...although it still is not the same :)

I am really excited about this. I have way too many pictures and definetely not the time to be putting them to paper. So this should be fun. Yeah, one more thing to do.

Well, here we go.

The Two Bald Babies

Sadie and Jessie are the best of friends. They are one year and four days apart and Justin and I joke that they are just picking up where they left off.

They are so close that one of the few words Sadie knows, Jessie (or more like Jesh-ee) is said the most. They make each other laugh and are having a great time.
