Twilight Moms in Midway!

This weekend was a lot of fun for me. My TwilightMOM or Twi-sters went to Midway to getaway for the weekend. There were 17 girls, we put sparklies in our hair, painted our nails and ate lots of Chocolate. We laughed, cried, and stayed up super late (5am). I have grown to adore these girls. There are so many amazing people! Thanks again to Joree for letting us crash at her parents beautiful home in Midway.
The next night we went to see a play and the Desert Star Theatre and had dinner at Macaroni Grill. What an amazing weekend.

Alyssa's Bed

Alyssa got a new bed. It's a bunk bed but we are using it as a loft bed right now with the crib underneath. It's working out great. The bedding was made by Kira. She did a great job and it's so cute in there. We just need to put up the vinyl flowers and it'll be all done. FINALLY!

Five Months

My Briella is 5 months old. I can't believe how big she is. She's rolling all over. She discovered her toes and loves to play with them. She is constantly eating her fingers and drooling all over. She's got two teeth in the bottom front. She loves her bumbo chair and her jumperoo. She laughs at her brother and giggles when her sister enters the room. She babbles and coos. This little girl is so happy and sweet she makes everything all better with her sweet smile!

She's still eating 6oz ever 4 hours. She sleeps through the night from 9-8.

Jump on It!

Kira, Valerie, and all the kids came to play! Kira and I really need to get our kids together more often. They had a ton of fun together at Jump On It.

Alyssa wanted to do something fun because there was no school. So we decided to go bowling. Let's just say they had a lot of fun. Dominic and Nolan had fun bowling too. Dominic threw the ball in the other lane. Tried to run down the bowling lane to discover it was slippery and ended up sliding down most of it. It was a pretty eventful day. Dominic said it was a lot harder than the Wii!

1st tooth!

Briella got her first tooth today! The bottom left tooth. I had no idea this little girl was even teething! Sure she's been drooling and grumpy but who would have thought at 4 months she would have been teething?
Well there it is!

Jose's a Citizen!

After 9 years and a whole lot of money. Jose is a US Citizen. He was sworn in today at the Rose Wagner Theatre along with 203 other people . It's so nice to know we don't have to deal with immigration ever again and that he can vote and have all the other blessings that we enjoy as citizens. I also couldn't help throwing in a few pictures of the kids.

Naturalization Certificate

Right after he was sworn in.


My sweet baby girl.

Briella's New Trick!

We are rolling!!! Briella started officially rolling tonight....all over the place. She's done it a few times when she's gotten really mad or upset. Now she's all over the place! The best part about it is hearing her giggle when she finally gets back to her belly or back.

I had to throw this one in.. look at that hair! Unbelievable!
