Recent pics

We were in the office and the kids just keep getting into the file cabinet, one of their favorite things. So, I decided to to a little photo shoot. I love the color of my walls, a perfect backdrop. Here are a few of them...

this little girl

She has been so funny lately. She definately knows what she wants and she is not afraid to get it. These were a few from today while Anth and I were playing/teasing her in the office. She obviously wanted to be in charge. I love the that is totally out of focus of me and her. I love any pics with my kids because I have hardly any pics with them.

love this little girl

Oh man, they are driving me nuts!

These are some random recent photos. Pics with cousins in the bath and at the barn and the all famous Tate having "naked hat time". Enjoy!

These are all pics from Christmas tree cutting, which was a ton of fun. We got to take the kids of 4 wheelers and just enjoy the outdoors. We also got to go shooting, which is always fun, but I really stink at it. I don't think Anth and I even helped with the Christmas trees at all... maybe next year!

Okay, the last few days I feel like I am going crazy. I haven't been so busy lately with my photography and I have just been hanging around with the twins. They hang all over me all day and I can't even go into the other room without them screaming. Also, Tate gets up 2 or 3 times a night lately, I think he might be teething....again. Sometimes I will lay on the floor with them to play and then I end up getting hit with something or they will fight over sitting in my lap and start beating each other up. My kids are so mean to eachother. Are all kids like this? I think being a twin would be hard though, a constant competition. They are finally asleep and I just cleaned the house so I feel a little better now, but earlier I just wanted to be on vacation! I just need to keep thinking about Europe and all will be good. Don't get me wrong, I adore my kids, but man this age has definately been the hardest.

Funny story, the other day Anthony got out the 3lb block of cheese and cut a few pieces for the kids. He left it on the counter, which he always does... then we went into the office. I went out to check on them because they were being really quiet. Tate had the whole block of cheese in the hallway just eatin away. I haven't laughed so hard in so long. He had taken at least 20 bites out of it. I got a few pics and on video camera. Chloe wanted in on it, but Tate held his own for once.

That is all for now...

This is Chloe and Tate's true personality. I was doing some pictures for Babylegs and they wanted me to use my kids in them, it was REALLY hard! I usually do individual pictures of them so this gave me a run for my money. Anthony was there to help luckily. The picture says it all. I love my crazy kids!

So Chloe has been obsessed with her blanket lately and her binkie, I might add. Don't ask me how she got it in the tub, it must have been on the floor and she grabbed it when I wasn't looking. Halarious, eh?

I have been going crazy! The twins are so high maintenance! They run around all day and most of the time they are crying! I don't know some days if I can handle it. I think it is just a faze because they have always been good mannered babies. I hope anyways! Chloe came with me this weekend to St. George, it was so nice to just have one with me and I got to spoil her. She did so good. She just walked around with her blanky and her binky. She is all the sudden obsessed with both of them. I got to see my brother Jaron and his family. It was a lot of fun. We also met my grandma Dorothy's sister in Cedar City. We asked her what she remembered about Grandma and she said, "She really liked tomatoes". Okay, that's a good way to remember her I guess.

Anthony stayed home with Tate and made the house a disaster. He got to see what it is like being home all day:) not that it is bad, it just is an awakening when he thinks I just "party" all day at home!

Chloe now says "no" because it is the word she hears most. Tate gibber gabbers all day, he is very vocal.

We are officially planning out trip to Europe in May and I am so excited! Thanks to everyone who emailed us info about Italy and Greece. I just can't wait.

Next time I promise to post some pics!

so today was a crazy long day. After dropping off Alicia and Savannah we went to grandma's house to play in the yard with the cousins.
We played soccer with all the kids while Chloe and Tate sat on the neighbors lawn eating rocks and dirt. It was lots of fun and Grandma aint too shabby at soccer, even though Logan kept calling her "old lady". Our team won of course, but who is keeping score. Then Shelley and I preceeded to kartwheels and handstands while Tate is off trying to get to the dogs accross the street. Tate love dogs! He barks like a dog all the time and puts his whole body into it, it's pretty funny.
After that we planned Christmas. This year we are going to stay the night at Nikki's new house in Farr West and go sledding. I think it will be lots of fun, crazy, but lots of good memories I hope. After that we went to Sherrie, my cousin, housewarming party in West Valley. This really motivated me to decorate more, her house was so cute and it has only been a few months, she shops more than me I think and that is hard to do. I shop a lot online now because shopping with kids is no fun.
So, at the party Chloe kept going up the stairs and when she knew we were all watching would pop her head around and make the funniest screm and then start laughing. She is so dang cute! Tate was running really fast in place, what a crazy man. We were all so tired so off to home we went. Anthony got home right when we did. He went to Ohio to bring back a car we bought. It is a Natural Gas vehichle. Gas will only be .63 cents a gallon! No more crying at the gas tank...

More later..

Update.... finally!

I haven't posted anything on this blog for a while, but I do want to update on Tate and Chloe. They are 15 months now and are crazy as ever. They don't seem to like eachother that much right now, hoping that will change. Tate is pretty easy going and happy and Chloe beats up on him a lot. Everyone just loves him and how happy he is just to be alive. He calls me Angie, it is so funny. When he wakes up in the morning he screams "Angie! Angie! Angie!" and then when I go and get him he says to me with sweet little eyes, "ba ba". Man he melts my heart. He still wakes up every night, he has never been a good sleeper. He especially loves to eat dirt and play with any sort of ball. He is talking a lot too!
My little Diva Chloe knows what she wants and will go to any lengths to get it. She bosses Tate and it is getting to the point where I have to discipline her, man I never thought it would start this young! She is very prissy and cute as well. She walks around the house with the blanket I made her around her hear, she looks like a ghost with it on. She is so funny! She loves soft things and will press things to her face and smile when they are cuddly. She loves putting rocks in her mouth and eating dirt as well. She eats like a horse, always up for eating. When she hears a wrapper she bolts to the source and begs for food. She just learned how to get up on the playset at the playground and go down the slide all by herself, I am so proud! Chloe doens't talk much but she does know a few words in sign, like more and eat.

My goal is to update this blog a few times a week and write the funny/cute things they do. This is the best way to journal for me.

Can't post without a pic, so here it is. I just printed this as a 20x20 on 3/4th's inch standout mount and it is beautiful. Hanging in my office to give me inspiration!
