So I haven't gotten pictures or posts up in awhile part of that is i have no Internet at my old place and another part of that is that I have been working full time. so here is a catch up of sorts.
We celebrated her second birthday in January with a few friends and family. Brooklyn loved both cakes that she got but like playing with her friends the most. She is in the terrible twos though most of the time she is till fine though her favorite thing to do right now is to copy and do anything her bib sis does which does not always work out very well. like last week when she was playing on the top bunk with lily and fell out because of trying to copy what lily had done. i am happy to say though that she is okay and did not break anything! One of her other favorite things to do is to hang out with papa aka grandpa. She loves the time she gets to spend with him especially now that they get to spend some of it outdoors!
Well what can i say Lily is still a goofball though she will tell you that you are! She is also loving school and has made a couple of friends though her best friend is Jake and she likes to play house with him and they have even held hands! She likes learning her letters but does not like practicing them at home :) Lily also loves to talk and she has a very creative imagination which she uses to make up and tell stories. She likes to draw aliens and she likes to try and tell her sister what to do. She is so fun though and she learns things even though we have questioned if she listens. Like the other day she was telling that she knew what temple she wanted to be married in so i asked her which one and she said Salt Lake temple because it is the prettiest. So then i asked her what it meant to be married in the temple and she said it means you always get to be with your family and that when you get married that boy joins your family forever. it was very cute and i am glad to hear that she enjoys church and is learning about principles at the same time!
Has started back at school and is loving his English class he is taking. He is getting a little down time as his hours at work have lessened due to them being a little slow from the economic situation. Though i know he is antsy for warmer weather so he can go paint balling with some of his friends. He is also spending what time he can with Lily and Brooklyn as well as me. We even made to a temple session the other week. :) it was really nice.
I am still pretty busy at work as i have been doing pretty close to forty hours a week there. when i am not working i am trying to enjoy time with my family and when i get downtime i try to read a good book or watch a good movie or hang out with friends! Though i did forget to mention that Paul and i sold our condo we close on the thirtieth of this month and we have moved in with my very nice in laws. thanks by the way for the use of your basement! We plan to use this time to save and get a very badly needed second car as well as save to get a new place to live! It will be bonus to get out of some of our current debt or make it smaller! I am looking forward to my vacation in April when we are going to go visit my family in Texas!
