Our friend Taylor took this pic and Kaylee was being a silly shy girl so she wouldn't look at him. Heather and I were telling her to smile from our lounge spot on the picnic blanket and she would only look at us. Her eyes fluttered up to Taylor once, but this pic is cute anyway. She is our little animal girl. She is a lover of ALL things that creep. I hope she becomes a vet:)

ps. we have some lovely looking chickens. I will get pics up as soon as we complete the outside of the coop!

Here are the girls on Easter Sunday. Looking at this photo makes me want to cry tears of joy. I love these girls so much. My heart is full. How did I get so lucky?

that's what Kaylee calls it.

We had spaghetti a while back and I thought it would be fun to teach the girls how to eat it with a spoon (you know, where you wind it up on the spoon with your fork??). I just learned that it's actually considered bad form to eat it that way, so I guess I wont pursue teaching them;) ANYWAYS. Riley, of course, was the only one interested in trying to eat it that way for more than one bite. It was so messy. and cute. and of course that meant I needed to grab my camera.


Spaghetti is our family favorite. The girls get super excited when they find out we're having it for dinner and the recipe makes so much that we always have plenty leftover for cold spaghetti sandwiches for the next few days. yum!

Happy Mother's Day

...now how 'bout a post that has nothing to do with it!:)

Riley has be come our little talker. It is so funny to see and hear sentences coming out of my tiny baby's mouth. Sometimes it seems like it can't even be real! So today my brother (Zach) and I had a conversation with her- one of her first conversations EVER! and it was adorable. We were sitting at the table and here is how it went:

Riley: "I don't like cats anymore. They are say 'Meowwww'"
Zach: "You don't like cats???"
Me: "Why don't you like cats anymore?"
Riley: (tuv=because. Its my favorite!!!) "Tuv they bite me. They mad for me."

Like I said, it doesn't even seem possible that things like this come out of her mouth! I bet our Rexburg friends wouldn't even believe that Riley talks like this. You would never know with how quiet she is in public. And most of the time it even surprises me when she talks! Oh! one more Riley Talks story:

The other day I took the girls to DI and told them that we were not getting any toys. I told them we could buy books and movies, but we were not buying toys at DI anymore. A few hours later we were at our friends' house (Heather and Talyor) and she very somberly told them, "We don't buy toys anymore". It was so funny and cute and just a little sad because of how pathetically she said it.

I love this little girl. I can't believe how much she is growing and what a big girl she is becoming! What happened to my tiny baby???

ps. I'm not really sure where the cat thing even came from. She has zero experience with cats. and she's definitely never been bitten by one!

I know I've been a super slacker at blogging lately.... Until I get rolling again, here is a beautiful bouquet of dandelions that the girls gathered for Michael today. Pic courtesy of my phone. My camera is on vacation.
