They are learning

It usually ends like this ....
......but I think there learning that if they smile and act cute then the picture taking will be over sooner.
I feel like someday they will thank me for the millions of pictures I take of them.
I love these cute little superstore outfits.
(and there cute little faces)

She's a smart little girl

This is the conversation Sophie and I had the other day. I have to write it down so I never forget it.

Side note: 6 months ago when my grandpa passed away we went back and forth on bringing Sophie to the meet the family. We finally decided to bring the kids for a little while then Spencer's parents took them home. Sophie did really well and just assumed that he was sleeping.

So here it goes..
We are driving down the street past the funeral home and Sophie sees it. She got so excited!
Sophie: Mommy! Theres heaven right there. It's not in the sky anymore. Lets go see Grandpa Chicken.
Me: Soph, that's actually not heaven. It's where Grandpa Chicken went before he went to heaven ( I thought it would make more sense to her)
Soph: That's where he was having a nap when he didn't have anymore oweys huh?
Me: Yep. Grandpa doesn't have oweys anymore.
Soph: Do you know how Grandpa chicken got to heaven?
Me: How?
Soph: His little girl came and got him (they had a little 2 year old pass away)
Me: That's right Soph
Soph: Yep, because she has wings
(tears streaming down my face in complete silence. i have no idea where she got that from)
Soph:(big sigh) I miss Grandpa Chicken so much
Me: I miss him too Soph
Soph: Don't be sad mommy. If were good kids we'll see him again.

I think these little ones know a whole lot more than we think they do.

What a difference a year makes...

Every little girl needs a best friend
Sophie and Grace have been best friends since they were little babies
Sophie would drop anything to play with Grace
Last year we had a fun little photoshoot with the girls. Sophie didn't cooperate as much as I had hoped but Mandy still got some beautiful pictures of them.
This is them 1 year ago

These are the pictures are from last night.. I can't believe how much they have changed in a year. They are such little princesses and I love them both so much.
I have TONS more I will post later. (some super cute ones of Ella and Kaia too).

One of my favorite places on earth

I love Waterton! We are so lucky to live so close to this little piece of heaven.
We spent the day there on Mother's Day and it was perfect.
Tough to be away from Spence,
but perfect in every other way.
ps. Happy Mothers Day to my mom, mother in law, and grandmas
Love you all!!

7 years!

May 2nd, 2003
It was a good day.. the best day.
I woke up to the sun shining.
My mom and I hurried into town and took a quick trip to the church so I could take a peak at the decorations.. perfect!
I walked into the temple KNOWING that I was doing the right thing.
I was so excited and jittery.

People talk about "the look" that they get from there husband to be the first time they see them on there wedding day.
Ohhh I know about the look.
Tears filled up in his eyes and I knew that he was as sure about it as I was.

7 years! Go us!
I love my husband, I love my husband!
He knows how to handle his 3 girls perfectly.. believe me, It's not easy.
He's the best.. seriously.

Happy anniversary Spence!
Wish you weren't in Winnipeg.
