Recent photos, packages and funny kids

This week we received two, yes TWO, packages from grandparents.

My mom’s package arrived first. She found some fantastic deals on clothes & an adorable padded board book titles ‘I Love Grandma’. Oh, and two more sippy cups.

The next package was from Guy’s mum. She send a couple dolls she gave we forgot to bring home with us, the razor and grooming kit we forgot (see a trend), a pair of pants Guy returned to Old Navy (they were ordered while in Utah & the replacement went there), two awesome quiet books for church, temple recommend holders & Donna threw in a bag of my favorite chips!!! Doritos only makes the Salsa Verde flavor West of the Mississippi. Oh well, our families are wonderful to get us the things we miss from the West coast. It’s kind of like living in a different country. I’m sure we’ll also miss some things from here if we leave. Blake had his big head in the way for the first shot.

Yesterday we busted out the bikes (Guy did it) and installed the kids bike seats. One bike seat we got from Buttons & Bows consignment store for only $30 and the other we got from our Yahoo Freecycle group. YAY for bargain hunting and generous people! Here is a shot of us getting ready to go taken by Guy. The babies did very well. They looked around a lot. Madison tried to eat the hanging part of her harness in her typical fashion. Blake used the bar and Guy’s booty as a drum most of the time. He also pulled his glasses down a couple of times.

The kids are so stinkin adorable in their glasses and hats. Nanny gave Madison her pioneer bonnet from the ‘This is the Place’ monument and visitors center.

I must have put Madison’s glasses on a little tight! She was pretty sweaty under them despite the cool temp. She had what looked like a unibrow for a good hour or so after they came off. Here is a shot!

I forget now why Blake was in his cutie patootie diaper, but they were just having a ball hanging out with me the other day.

  1. it’s always so nice to receive packages + letters in the mail. what cutie pies, as always.

  2. oh my, i love that photo of your sweet madison with the bonnet on! so adorable!

  3. Glad your package arrived safely, I just hope the Doritos travelled well & didn't get smushed too much. I tried to pack them in the middle. Kids are growing so fast, they will be toddlers soon, no longer babies. love to all
