BSU game

For our Anniversary in August, Trent bought us Boise State football tickets. I know it's not the most romantic, but it is a BYU vs Boise State game, so I was excited. We also got extra tickets so our friends, the Belnaps, could come too.  Since it was over a month away, we had time to get a sitter and Trent was able to take the next day off work. The game started at 8pm, so we didn't get out of there until after midnight and home by 1am. Crazy night, but it was so much fun. Best date night in a long time, and a great 12th Anniversary gift.

After he bought our tickets, Trent thought that it would be fun to do a boys night with Nick at a BSU game. Nick had a great time and enjoyed the night, but he "mostly liked the food." Trent said that every half hour he wanted to go and get something else to try. The mini donuts were his favorite. I'm glad these two could have a special night together.

NICU Harvest Party

 The hospital where the babies stayed when they were tiny has a NICU Harvest Party each year. All the babies who stayed in the NICU get to see the doctors and nurses who helped them. It ios si much fun for the whole family. They have a carnival, cookie decorating, crafts, a bunch of gifts they give away and treats.

This year the babies went as a lion and a leopard. Bailey was a cat and Nick wanted to be a ghostbuster.

Paint Night

The babies and kids can be a rough crowd to be around all the time. Crying, cleaning the house, diapers, making meals and laundry can wear even the strongest mom out. Therefore mommy needs a night out every once in awhile. My best friend, Ashleigh, had her mom and friend were in town and she invited me to go to a Paint Nite with them. It was so relaxing and so much fun. I had a great time and was able to refresh a little before taking on mommy duties again!

Busy Busy Babies

Since school has started, life has gotten a little crazy and busy. It is nice that the older kids are back in school and doing well, but homework, spelling tests, Bailey's gymnastics, and various other activities keep our evenings pretty busy. The days I just seem to run around after the babies cleaning up messes and splitting up fights (yep even at 1 year old they pulled each other's hair and push each other down) Jackson can now open doors, so we have to lock all the doors and try our best to keep them out of the bathrooms and pantry (their two favorite places to make the biggest messes).

Here are just a few pictures that I took over the last few weeks that are mostly of the twins

Twins 1st dentist appointment

Today I took Madison and Jackson for their 1st dentist appointment. When they first mentioned it at Bailey and Nicks appointment last month, I thought they were crazy to  want me to bring them in. They said that the exam would be free and it would just be a short trip to get them comfortable going. They also put on a tiny bit of fluoride to protect their teeth.

The babies ended up  doing great. We take the kids to a pediatric dentist that is amazing. First thing they did was give the babies sunglasses to wear and a stuffed animal to hold. Then one at a time, they brushed their teeth and put on the fluoride. Both babies seemed to love the attention. Jackson was so proud of himself wearing big boy sunglasses and sitting in the big chair that he just flirted with everyone. Madison was ready to go once she saw Jackson getting all the attention.

First day of school

Today the kids are a bit anxious and excited to start school again. Nick is now in 1st grade and will get to eat lunch at school. He was very excited about that. Bailey is in 3rd grade and is very nervous. She is so shy and worries about everything, that she makes me nervous for her, but she will do great!

Nick is terrible at taking pictures so Bailey was trying to make him smile. Oh how I love these two!


These two are crazy and full of energy, but they are going to do great. Very proud of them and excited for the new adventures that this school year may bring!
