Family Pictures 2011

My sister-in-law Lori took some pictures of us. We were way excited on how they turned out.

Sledding for the first time

This year I really wanted to take the kids sledding since they have never really been and I wanted to see their reaction. When Rich was off one Monday and we borrowed our friends sleds and off we went. They both had a blast. In fact they were brave enough to go down face first. A few times Lexie tried to take off before we were ready. Apparently my kids don't fear anything. I don't know if that is a good thing or bad. I have a feeling we will be paying a few trips to the hospital in the future for all their mischievousness. Of course now I probably just cursed myself. Enjoy the little peeps pics.

Lexie the Conqueror

One day while I was cleaning up after lunch. I saw Lexie on top of Robbie in the laundry basket and they were having so much fun...

lu lu and her 27 dresses

My little baby girl is not a baby anymore. Lexie is preparing to go to nursery soon. Now she is running all over the place. I can't believe how fast time flies. She brings lots of joy in our life with all her little smiles and giggles. It will be exciting to watch her in her new adventurous stage as she takes the world in being active. I love dressing her up in all of her cute dresses. Here is a tribute to her first year posing in some of her many dresses.

Her one year shot with more to come.

End of Summer

I can't believe the end of summer is near. It seems like this summer has gone by so fast. This last month, we have been extremely busy gearing up for preschool and watching Lexie turn into a toddler. Our sweet little children our growing up so fast.

Robbie likes to pretend that his socks are his gloves. He has become so obsessed with dressing himself, that sometimes it is not worth the fight and I just sit back and laugh at what he will come up with next.

Lexie love playing with Robbie when he will give her the time of day. I think it is so cute to watch kids get enjoyment out of the simplest things such as a laundry basket.

After a year of waiting. I finally was able to finish the long awaited trilogy of hunger games. I seriously am so obsessed that I read this entire book over a long weekend. Although I was a little disappointed with the ending. If anyone is having this as a feature in their book club, let me know I would love to discuss it talk about it.

Rich is starting his last year of his EMPA masters program at BYU. Yeah, I am so proud of you honey. It has been a big adjustment and we are looking forward to when he can finally graduate.

I don't know who these kids are but it reminded me of my old days at Copper Hills when I use to run cross country. This month I have been training to run my first half marathon that my friend Sarah has organized on September 25th. I have always ran 5k races and now I want to see how far I can push myself. I probably won't be able to walk afterwards, but I am excited to try. Ultimately I want to complete a Triathlon so this will be a good test for me. Wish me luck!

Rich and I went to go see Inception to celebrate our 6th anniversary on August 7th. We had a great time considering we don't ever get to go to the movies together. We both were impressed with how the movie turned out so much that we want to see it again. This would be a great show to discuss the twisted ending.

Lexie Lu is starting to walk around the house by holding onto furniture. She is such a joy in our life. We feel truly blessed to have both of our cute children.

I think Lexie has a sweet tooth for chocolate just like the rest of the fam.

Apparently both Robbie and Lexie our restless sleepers and always end up in the funniest positions. They are constantly rolling around and it is hard to keep a blanket on them. I think this is why Rich and I never get a good nights sleep when they end up in our bed. I guess that is just one of the many sacrifices parents must endure.

what we've been up too lately

Yesterday, we went up to the 4th of July Kaysville Parade with the Goar family (Rich's friends from TX). Robbie was so excited about all the candy he was collecting off the streets and couldn't wait to try the big popcorn ball.
Rich and Lexie kicking back. I don't think she knows what to make of all the noise. She looks startled.
I love dressing Lexie up with all her cute accessories. I bought the Patriotic dress last year on sale before she was born and the little red shoes we got from a friend. I hope that she loves playing dress-up as much as I do one day.

You can tell I was pretty tired that day so Lexie and I decided to take a little nap. June has been a crazy month for us. First we celebrated my sister's wedding where Robbie was the ring bearer and Lexie was the flower girl. Then we celebrated Robbie's birthday with my family in town. Most of my pictures are on my sister's camera so I will have to post that later. June 21st-23rd the Laurels, leaders and I took off on a river run trip up in Jackson Hole which was a blast. Rich and Robbie went to TX that same week to visit grammy and scary grandpa as Robbie calls them. Rich also got to see Jesse & Kim and some high school friends. Lexie had a fun night at my sister's house until I returned home. The rest of the week was pretty lonely without Rich & Robbie, but it was a nice break and we were able to do some house projects.

Spring Madness

Yeah, spring is finally here and my tulips are popping up. We have been making a lot of changes around the house lately that it seems like forever since I last posted. Here is a little update of what we've been up to the last few months.

Robbie has started taking more interest in Lexie, now that she laughs and cackles and can sit up on her own. He decided that he wanted to give her a ride just like daddy does to him.He has taken a interest in her so much that sometimes he wants to be like her or he acts this way in hopes of getting more attention from me. He has even started eating vegetables again in baby food form and all of Lexie's little puffs for teething. He insists that his teeth are hurting and he needs them more.

We went to a few Easter egg hunts even though their was snow on the ground and Robbie had a blast. He was more excited about what was in his basket then meeting the Easter bunny. I could not get him to look up.
Lexie all bundled and waiting for the hunt to be over with so she can go back in the toasty car.Robbie anxiously waiting for the fireman truck alarm to go off.

Easter morning. Robbie was thrilled to finally be able to have his own egg carton. He loves to help mommy crack real eggs. I think he was disappointed when he found out they were made of marshmallows instead.
Yes, I know I am bad. I gave Lexie her first dose of sugar before she is one. How can you resist a face like that. She didn't eat the whole bunny. Daddy and Robbie stole some, but I'm sure she would have if given the opportunity.
Happy Easter!
Lexie doesn't seem to mind being on her stomach like Robbie. I wonder if she will crawl sooner, she has been rolling around a lot lately. Uh-oh sounds like trouble!
Robbie pulled the Tang out of the closet while I was in the shower because, he wanted a drink and though he could help himself. Well it ended up in a stomp fest with him and Weston dancing in the kitchen. I still have orange spots deep in my carpet that don't seem to want to come out.
His feet became permanently orange for a few days. I guess his bath water wouldn't cut it. I didn't realize that Tang is like a form of Kool-aid.
Lexie and I getting ready for church in our Spring clothes. Originally we though she might wear this for Carly's wedding, but I think she might outgrow it by then. We shall see.
Lexie laughing at her brother being silly.
Robbie doesn't ever really want to hold Lexie so it is hard to get a picture of the two of them together.

My little old man is trying on his ring bearer outfit for Carly's wedding. Now we just need to cut his hair. Whew.... sorry for the long update.
