a little dose of catch up

i was going to write about all the things we've been up to. but i'm going to spend time with the kids instead. 
 *the girls are asleep now; so i can write about all the great things that have been happening. i have to keep up with the theme of the blog right? cheerful cheerful cheerful! i won't tell you how sometimes after i have babies things are really hard and trying before they get a little easier. so here are some cheerful things:
  • baby showers! i was so graciously given 2 of the most fun showers! that's a first for me. the first was from my two leavitt sister in laws- and it had the best lemonade ever.  the second was given by my ward friends. we stayed up talking till 10:30! it was so wonderful all the outfits and diapers and much needed things we were given. thank you thank you thank you!
  • the girls are doing excellent with their swim lessons. a very big change from last year. we were starting to get worried that we would end up like their dad. ty just has never enjoyed swimming. whereas i was a fish growing up adn still love it. lifeguarding was my first job out of high school.
  • ty is knocking down our to-do list every day. i can't imagine what it's like to have all that responsibility. the hard part about being a mr. fix it is that you are the one who has to fix ALL of it! and our house and property and cars need lots of fixin'.
  • baby wodney! oh, he is a love. he gets chubbier and chubbier by the millisecond and i love it. plus, he hasn't peed on me in a week. score!
  • my family. i know that i can call my sisters and sister in-laws and they will pick up the phone and listen to me cry and whine about all my insignificant problems that seem gigantic. i also am given so much love and caring from ty's family who treat me as their own. and i'm very appreciative of that. they love my kids to death and it makes all the difference in the world to them.
here's a picture of baby rodney and me on his first day at church. 
socks and shoes were optional.

* i found out why this picture came out so blurry. peanut butter on the lense. does it every time.
