A few pictures from our trip

Grandma and Grandpa Mills picked up Jessi and I at the airport in SLC so we had a chance to see some of John's family before heading to ID for the funeral. Grandma made Jessi this super cute headband. There are more pictures on our new blog

sweet baby

My awesome friend came over while the boys were at Joy School one day last week and took some pictures for me. They turned out beautiful. Jessi didn't want to sleep until the very end. Thanks Danelle!

My baby girl

I absolutely love dressing up my sweet baby girl everyday. It took her 2 weeks to have her first blowout . I was waiting for it so I could put her in more than one outfit a day. But it was only once. Now at 3 weeks she is finally starting to I can change her outfit more often.

Birthday Party

Saturday we celebrated the twins birthday with a Lightning McQueen Party. They have been talking for weeks about wanting to have a party when grandma came to stay with us. Jakub really wanted a pinata so when grandma took them shopping they picked one out. Jakub picked a white cake mix and James picked white frosting with sprinkles. Grandma also had them pick out a toy, outfit and pj's. A package came in the mail from Grandma and Grandpa M so they opened lots of presents including some from mom and dad too.

We hung the pinata outside and let the boys all take a few swings at it with the broom stick and then we took it inside and they pulled the strings to open it. Grandma had stuffed it with candy and prizes.

We sang happy birthday and ate cupcakes before dinner. It was a perfect birthday for these 4 year olds. They were so happy to share their special day with Grandma.
Today...just one day after celebrating the twins birthday....we all had to say goodbye to Grandma. It was so good to have my mom to help out for a week. I couldn't have survived without her. She spoiled us all while she was here. My house is perfectly clean, and I wish I could say it will last. Tonight at bedtime the tears really started to flow. We Miss You Grandma. Thanks Grandpa for sharing your sweetheart with us. We love you!

Raggedy Ann

When I was two my mom made me a Raggedy Ann Doll. She found the pattern and made Jessi a Doll. I didn't know she was making it....she surprised me on Saturday night when she pulled it out of a sack she had carried onto the airplane because she didn't want it to get smashed and wrinkled.

I am home now and I hope to keep you all updated on the day to day of having a new baby at our house. The boys were all excited to pick us up at the hospital.

Tonight she found her thumb and when the boys did I immediately pulled it out and put the Binky in. With her I watched, smiled and took pictures for a few minutes before taking her from John and feeding her.

There is so much more to tell but I am tired and sitting on this chair is uncomfortable.
