What's Up? Not much...

Yeah, RIGHT! We have had a lot going on lately! Since Addy's birthday, we have just been going NON-STOP!  We made another trip to Vegas, Nate's been playing a lot of softball, as usual and a bazillion other things.  I've been planning baby showers, deep cleaning the house (don't let that fool you, it's still a mess), paying doctor bills, making several trips to the hospital to visit a friend who was in a bad accident, planning lessons for Young Women's, taking the kids swimming A LOT, having play dates, major yard work, getting ready for a garage sale (which went very well, by the way, thanks for asking) and washing walls.

PHEW! that's a lot of stuff. I can't remember the rest, it's all sort of a blurr. Hence the reason i'm not on the computer much anymore. I just don't have time.  Plus, I'd rather be playing outside in the awesome weather anyways!

Nate had a triple header the other night at softball. After a couple homeruns and a sweet slide into home-base, i've decided he's pretty much the best softball player ever. I'm not joking. He makes me proud. His team made it to the championship game!!! They took home a sweet 2nd place trophie and a lot of yucky sweat and dirt. But, 3 games people.. in ONE night. That's a lot of sweat and dirt from the wives and their kids as well. Thanks Valerie for keeping us company and helping with my kids. I always have a sigh of relief when my mother in law comes to things with us!

So, after a few weeks of craziness and fun, and a really hot day selling stuff, we decided to make life even more crazy by planning to paint the entire inside of our house. We are prepping for new flooring in a week or so. (so excited... insert a jump for joy (here))

But first, this is how we roll:

We drove the impala to church today. The girls loved every minute of it. I have to admit that I felt pretty cool too. Nothing like driving a convertible, that's for sure.

Hailey also offered to give a talk in Primary next week. Can't believe how big she's getting! CRAZY! I could go on and on about all the cool stuff she's learning, but it would be a painfully long post, so I won't. :-)

Addy is hillarious these days. She sings all. the. time. And again, learning all kinds of fun stuff like animals and shapes and words and numbers. So fun.

So, if you call me and ask "what's up?" and my response is "not much" just know that for me, that means, nothing traumatic has happened but a WHOLE lot of other stuff has! :-)

Happy Birthday Addy!!

I'm about a week late, but I wanted to wish my little Addy a Happy Birthday! We had such a great time. My parents came into town for the weekend and helped me plan a fun little party for her. We had lots of great food and treats. Thanks to all those who helped out to make it such a fun night. Although, I think I lucked out in having the most fun with the planning. :-)

First, I had to take a trip to the past and see my baby girl when she was born...

The true excitement from Daddy... love this picture...

Then, I had to remember how fun her birthday was last year... Addy, at 1.

Destroying her cake...

And now, such a grown up girl...
Addy at 2.

Happy 2 Years Addy!!!
