Girls just wanna have fun!

First off I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE having girls!! It is so fun to play with them! Well yesterday I was feeling lonely and sad that Christian was gone and it was Saturday night and I had nothing to do! So me and the girls decided to have a pajama party! We wore matching PJs, we played with our hair, did our nails, did make up and played games! It was so much fun! Eden and Ella are really starting to really play well together! I love it!
Ella painting her nails! It was so cute because she really tried to put it on her nails!
Eden curling mommy's hair. She LOVES to do my hair! Brush it, curl it or just play with it!

Eden doing Ella's make up! SO cute!
Setting up Jenga! Eden really got the concept of the game and she did pretty good at it too!

When they all fell down she though it was so fun!!!
I can't even express how much I love my little girls. They seriously are my best friends (and you too Christian). I know at times it's super hard having 2 kids, especially having them so close, but I really wouldn't want it any other way. With christian being gone it's been so nice to know that I can still have fun with my 2 girls. I'm so blessed to have them. They're beautiful, fun, loving, so smart and they're healthy. For that I am most thankful for. I love you Eden and Ella more than I can say. Thank you for loving me and bringing me so much joy! I love you!

It's official...I'm the WORST blogger ever!

Ok so I have no excuse other than I have a 2 year old who, is a 2 year old, and a 10 month old who wants to be a 2 year old! I am SO busy!!! These girls definitely keep me on my toes that's for sure! I love it! So I thought I'd just do a quick recap of our summer activities. Now that we're home in Utah I'm hoping I'll have a little more time to update this. So here we go...
Well Denver was so much fun! I really loved the city. We had lots of visitors...

when the weather was nice. The Weather in Denver was so crazy!! It rained almost every single day. And when I say rain, I mean crazy hail and wind and thunder and lightening! We spent lots of time with these guys...
And went to lots of these...
4th of July...
Ella learned how to do this...

And Eden turned into this...
Such a big girl! We took a few fun trips...

Bear Lake
We bought this beauty just for the trip! LOVE IT!!!

Minnie Mouse!
Pooh Bear
Peter Pan(totally Eden's Favorite this trip)

Rosetta(one of Mommy's favorites of the trip!)
Tinkerbell! (Worth the wait!)
My mom rode THIS!!!!

And I ran my first Half Marathon!!!!!!
So glad you came with us mom!
We caught some waves at Huntington Beach

And after all that, we finally made it back to home! Only to be without Christian for 2 months while he does an extension selling in San Diego. It's only been 4 days and we are seriously missing him like crazy! We're hoping to have him come home every weekend so hopefully it won't be too hard!
We're very excited to be looking at new houses! We've sadly grown out of our little townhome! We're practically bursting at the seems! Which is one reason Christian is selling for an extra 2 months.
A quick update on the girls...for those of you that are still reading this NOVEL! Eden is 2 and is such a 2 year old some days! Most days she is s sweet angel that helps her mommy SO much, but then there are days where I have to put myself in timeout so I can get a minute of peace! She seriously DOES NOT STOP TALKING! I shouldn't be too surprised her being MY daughter! She is FULLY POTTY TRAINED!!!! YAY! She's such a big girl! SHe loves nursery and come home every week singing a new song to me or teaching me a new game that they've played! She loves to sing and dance and to have girl nights with mommy where we paint our nails and watch a movie!! I love having girls!!
Ella is getting SO big!!! She's 10 and a half months and just wants to be wherever Eden is, doing whatever Eden's doing! She LOVES her older sister! She also loves to drive her mommy crazy getting into EVERYTHING! She is such a busy baby. She is trying so hard to walk! She has taken a couple of steps but nothing too solid yet! She can say 'Hi' and she waves while she says it! It is the cutest thing ever! She also can say 'Dada' and Mama' and just recently she started saying 'Stef'! She is comprehending so much more now and getting so fun! She claps her hands, she sings and dances! We just love her so much!
Well sorry for this post being so long! I promise I won't ever go that long again without posting. Oh and I don't think I'm going to have my blog be private anymore. I always forget to check my private blogs and so I don't want people to forget about me! Even though I haven't posted in SO long!!! Well we're so glad to be back in Utah! We've missed our home and our families! I go to look at houses tomorrow so I"ll keep ya posted!!!
