Vacation to Moab!

Last week we went camping in Moab and had a total blast! We went hiking in Arches and went to the Hole n' the Rock museum where they had a zoo where you could feed the animals.

All three of the girls were quite the little climbers! I was so proud of them. They scaled those arches like little pros!

New floor in the girls rooms!

For a few different reasons we decided to put laminate wood flooring in the girls rooms. It turned out beautifully and now I really want to put it in our living room. Here are a few pictures of it in various stages.

Christmas 2011

This first picture is completely random and has nothing to do with Christmas, but I had to post it because it was so cute. I checked on Aubree during her nap the other day and she looked so precious I just had to snap a picture. She's sleeping on a unicorn pillow pet, a bumblebee pillow pet and a Hannah Montana pillow. All these Christmas pictures are in backwards order, but that's ok:) We went to Grandpa Scott and Grandma Sherry's for lunch and opening presents. Here's Syd opening a present (her favorite thing)

Here's the twins opening their presents from Grandma & Grandpa

The girls opening presents at our house Christmas morning

Our Family Gift....A Wii. We decided to get a Wii for our whole family this year, so each of the girls got just a few presents to open from us.

The girls coming down the stairs Christmas morning at 6 am. Syd and Aubs are all smiles, but Ky looks a little sleepy.

The girls holding Santa's cookies and milk on Christmas Eve.

Sloan & the girls made "Reindeer Food" composed of Rice Krispies, red sprinkles and oatmeal. Here they are Christmas Eve putting the Reindeer food out.

One of our family traditions is to open up new jammies on Christmas Eve. This year Syd got panda jammies, Aubs got Hello Kitty ones and KyKy got Lalaloopsy.

The Sunday before Christmas we went to see the lights at Temple Square as a family.The lights and the Temple were beautiful, but it was VERY crowded. Next year we'll have to go a little earlier in the season.

Our 3 Beautiful Girls

The Twins are in a pilot program through Alpine School District designed to help with their speech. It's called Talking Time, and it's basically a one hour a week preschool where for the first 30 minutes they focus on one sound and do games and activities as a group focusing on that sound. For the second part of the hour, the kids work on a craft while each one is called over individually for one-on-one speech therapy. They absolutely love it. This past week Mrs. Santa Claus came to visit their class and gave them each a gift.

Syd had a busy week this past week too. She played "O Come All Ye Faithful" at her piano recital. She was a little nervous, but she did a superb job. We were so proud of her. After she played at the recital, we left and went straight to her school where the whole 1st grade put on a program with songs from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I took this picture of her right before we left for the recital. I can't believe how grown up she looks.

Catch up for the past 2 months!!!

It's been entirely too long since I last posted. So much has happened the last two months. All the girls had birthdays, Halloween, family activities and lots more. Here is a glimpse of what we have been up to. Syd turned 6 on August 18. She had a circus birthday party. She and her friends all had a great time. They played pin the nose on the clown, we also had a prize raffle. We finished off by opening presents and having cupcakes and ice cream. Does she look excited for her party or what?

On September 25th the twins turned 3! I can't believe Sloan and I have survived 3 years with these 2! We celebrated by having cake (Lion King) and ice cream at Grandma Sherry and Grandpa Scott's house.

Both girls decided to put on ALL the clothes they were given for their birthday at the SAME time. They each have 4 outfits on. Silly girls!

At the beginning of October we went to Hee Haw Farms as a family. We had a blast! The girls rode ponies, the animal train, and went down this big slide on burlap bags. They also got to pet the animals. Kilee got ran over by a goat trying to attack another goat! We also went on a trick-or-treat hayride. It was a fun night.

On Syd's fall break from school we went up to This Is The Place Heritage Place for "little haunts". It was fun to see all the houses. We rode the train, went to story time with the witch and the girls got to ride ponies again. It was a pretty fun Halloween celebration.

This year for Halloween, the twins really got in to trick-or-treating. Somehow the picture of Sydnee disappeared from my camera, but she was a witch. Aubs was a turtle and KyKy was a butterfly.
