tutus and cowboy boots

Lucy with the neighbor's horses out back.
For some odd reason, Lucy loves to pair her favorite tutu with her hand-me-down boots from cousin Annie. They always elicit funny reaction s from people, if you tell her they look "cool" she'll say "No, they look pretty!".Lucy watched Alice in Wonderland and now always wants to lay in the "flowers". We only have clovers, but those seem to do.

She is not scared of them at all and will feed them right out of her hand.
Last week the horse thought her finger was the carrot...oops.
Lucy wasn't hurt but she was very offended that the "horsie bit her".

Abby and Ty playing some good ol' classic Nintendo.
Ty's brother bought a machine that will play all of their old games.
Mike Tyson's Punch-out has been the favorite, but Ty always has a hard time passing Soda Popinski :) Don't tell him I told you that!

Abby our smilin' girl 3 1/2 months old


the fair

So every year the Clark County Fair and Rodeo comes to Logandale and all us small town folk get to enjoy something new. Mostly all the locals go just for the food, and to see everyone. It literally is like a class reunion every year for us. It is fun and we enjoy sharing it with Lucy and Abby. Lucy actually rode the ponies this year, (no screaming!) and also enjoyed the carnival rides. It was great. We enjoyed being with family and friends and hanging out. We missed my parents because Thursday is always grandparent day and they take all the kids to the rides, but next year everyone will be healthy.

Abby at the fair, she is so beautifully chunky, and so beautifully bald!

The Siberian tigers were definitely the highlight of the fair. They were new this year and were crazy! They were huge and loud and would fight with each other and I was very, very scared. Lucy was thrilled!

The swifty swine pig races... have to see it to believe it!

The choo choo train, Lucy wanted to know where the "driver" was for the rest of the weekend.


easter is about chocolate

So this morning Ty and I tried to explain the resurrection to a 2 year old (what were we thinking?). Lucy seemed to memorize the phrase about how he died for us and now he lives, in "heaben". Well, thanks to a great nursery leader, they learned about Jesus all day long, and she came home and told Aunt Sarah all about Jesus and "how he got owies on his feet and hands" and how he died and now lives. We were so proud.

Tyson's parents came over for a family Easter dinner and we were so excited to "show off" Lucy's new knowledge about Jesus and the Atonement. So they asked her, "Lucy, what is Easter?" She said, "Eggs!"; so they asked, "No, what is Easter about?" And our brilliant daughter said, "Easter is about chocolate!" Can't blame her, it seems that we gave the candy message a lot stronger than about the Savior. But she's learning. It was pretty funny!

Lucy in her new Easter dress and Bonnet (and pretty new shoes thanks to cousin Emily)

I couldn't resist putting in this picture. I know that it's really blurry but I love the excitement in Lucy's eyes and the terror in Abby's.

Our family, Easter 2007. Don't you love how candy can make a kid so happy, and then they turn into something like this? She was NOT very happy taking pictures after church, hmm, neither was Abby.


random pics

lucy and abby last week in bed. i put abby in lucy's crib while lucy and i cleaned up her room. well, i actually cleaned up and lucy undid everything i did :) well, she just thought it would be so much fun to get into bed with abby and i snapped this (right before lucy squished her). abby is getting pretty chubby these days, and she's smiling! i call her 'chunk-a-lunk'. she weighs 10lbs 6 oz now, so she has more than doubled her birth weight, way to go! she'll be three months old on the 11th, i still can't believe it.

so here is a picture of Ty, Lucy and our kitty from this fall. the weird part is is that this was a totally random picture. Ty and Lucy were reading their daily 'nightime' story and the cat (which no longer lives inside by the way) curled up in his lap. notice the title of the book, we thought it was too funny! this is our cat named "kitty" who had kittens, now her name is "mommy kitty" according to lucy. ty still reads lucy a story every night before bedtime, and it is a great help for me. he doesn't even skip any pages either (i tend to cheat a little if i'm tired!) love love love this picture. abby had been home about a week when i snapped this. lucy does love her little sis. i can tell though that this has been a hard time for her, a difficult adjustment. she is getting used to the fact that i have to divide my attention and time between the two of them, and someday we will survive all of this. i told my friend who also has two little girls, that someday it will be so wonderful to just hop into the car with my two teenage daughters and just go play. these days it takes about an hour and a half to get the two of them ready and packed just for a trip to the library.

lucy's 2 year old pictures that i never got out to anybody. she looked so cute and i still have all of the pictures on my computer waiting to get printed out and mailed...oops. lucy loves to dance, and she loves bugs. a funny combination if you ask me. we found a june bug outside today and she told ty that "him's a girl, him's name is sophie!" how funny. she also loves to go on our walks now in the mornings, which is a change from before abby. she is much more peaceful now that they sit by each other. we saw a squished bunny on the road last week and the next day it was gone, she wanted to know why. i told her why and she still asks about where he is when we drive by that spot in the car. i tell lucy that she is my "favorite lucy", now I know why my mom always said that phrase, to make each one of us feel special.

abby was in the paper for her birth announcement last week. i finally got around to doing it and her picture came out way dark. bummer. but this one turned out well and she looks so cute. about 3 weeks old, so she had been home a week. that is when she used to sleep all day long, not anymore! ty can get her to coo and smile like crazy, way better than when she's with me. when i try and talk to her all she wants to do is eat, big surprise. she is my 'favorite abby'.
