The last couple of months in pictures...

Okay, so I have been a complete blog-slacker the last little while...It's can be so hard to find the time. Usually when the girls are sleeping, I try to nap or clean house etc., and when Jordan is home, I usually just hand a baby off on him so I that can cook dinner one-handed. No time I tell ya! However, today I am making an exception, and throwing up some pictures on this thing during nap time, just so you know that we are all alive and well:)This is the very minimal decorating the girls and I did for Jordan's birthday. Unfortunately he had school and work that day, so he was just as busy as ever with no real time for relaxation. That weekend we drove up to the aquarium in Sandy to celebrate only to find a sign on the door saying they closed early! Boo. We are planning on trying again this weekend.
Avery and Matilda's first-ever outing was to Grandma and Grandpa Stutz' house--they are affectionately known as "the Grandudes." They are so sweet, and genuinely amazing people. One of those couples that has an arsenal of life experiences that leave you wondering how they fit them all into their years! Here is Grandpa and Avery...
And Grandma and Tilly.
These are our friend the Micheners. They used to live next door to us, and were the neighbors we could depend on for anything--cup of sugar, etc. Not too long ago they graduated and moved to Virginia beach for work. They came back for a visit and to bless their adorable baby boy Ethan. It was so fun to see them again--we missed you guys!

Okay, these little winter suits crack us up. My mom got them for the girls for this winter, and every time we put them on , they transform into little stuffed animals, or dolls or something. Hilarious.
...and finally, some blessing pictures.  I love the above picture mostly because of the range of emotion in the two faces. They are so funny!
And of course, the obligatory family pic. Anyway, we hope you enjoyed the slide show. We are still getting used to having our little ones home. It is stressful at times, but more often than not, just enjoyable. Jordan is also in the midst of his last semester (woohoo!!), so we are spending a lot of our time job hunting as well. Wish us luck!

I'm dying. Those smiles. Too cute to handle! Or should I say "TWO cute to handle." Couldn't resist. That was in honor of good old Jim, the pun king. And I will be sending lots of job hunting wishes your way; however, my range only reaches to within a 30 mile radius of the 95630 zip code. And 30 miles is even stretching it.
