"Danielle" and the Lion's Den

My sister-in-law gave us this cute lion jacket a while back and it now fits Callie just right. Since it was Monday night we decided to act out the story of Daniel and the Lions den. However to convince Taylor she wanted to participate we told her she could be Danielle the Princess. Of course she agreed to that! We had a great time and don't the girls look cute!


We also had a little Daddy wrestling match after we were done...

This could be a difficult week for Callie


So, I've been totally procrastinating getting rid of Callie's pacifier. We got her to the point where she only has it a night and at nap times a few months ago but I haven't had the guts to totally get rid of it. Well, since she has been sick this past week all she has wanted to do was lay in her bed with the pacifier (even though she wasn't sleeping). I just got so tired of hearing "passey...passey" through continuous crying this morning that I cut the end off it and gave it to her. Needless to say she was not too happy! She hasn't really recovered yet and it is almost time for her nap. I'm pretty sure she won't be getting too much sleep today (or anyone else for that matter!). Oh, well....we had to get rid of it sometime.

It's been 3 weeks....

So once again, I've been totally slacking in the blogging department. But we have been pretty busy as of late. The girls have been growing up so much!

Callie remains as the wild child who is always getting into everything. The worst, was the other day when I was cleaning my bathroom. I should have been watching Callie more closely but I just wanted to get the bathroom done....big mistake! She had pushed a kitchen chair up to the counter and gotten into the cabinet that holds the spices, which happens to be next to the stove. She opened up the the cinnamon, which was almost full , and dumped it out all in the stove tops, on herself and on the floor. It was a huge mess! Because the cinnamon is such a fine powder it was very difficult to clean up, not to mention all the cinnamon that I inadvertently inhaled while cleaning it up. The one consolation is that it smelled really nice! I should have taken a picture but I just had to get it cleaned up before the cinnamon spread around the house!

I love this picture picture of the girls...they look so grown up with their hair up. It is almost impossible to keep Callie from climbing on the table....any suggestions?

The girls are just lounging around being silly!
So one of the reasons we have been so busy is we have decided to put our home up for sale. Originally, I really didn't want to sell but we found a house in the fieldstone development that we really like and would love to move into. Ideally, we would have just moved from this home to Colorado but it seems like that won't be happening for a few years. Because of that, we wonder if we should move now instead of in a few years, when we have a better chance of actually moving to Colorado. Of course selling seems to be pretty difficult right now....so we'll just cross our fingers and hope for the best! So if you know anyone who wants a great starter home in Springville, send them our way!
We are all healthy now, thankfully and getting excited for the arrival of our baby boy (10 weeks left!) The 3rd pregnancy is proving to be a bit more challenging then the previous 2. If they only made a pill I could take to help me be a bit more patient.....
