We are in the house.....sort of unpacked.....I still feel like I am living out of a suitcase. Of course I think my father-in-law said it best. It's like putting 5lbs of crap into a 2lb bag. When did all of our things have babies and when did their babies have babies?????? I swear our stuff has multiplied and I KNOW I got rid of a ton of stuff before we left AZ. I have decided that I will move one more time and then after that Dan is on his own (I say that but we all know like a good wife I will follow my husband even if it is kicking and screaming).

What I have decided about moving is that no matter how much stuff you get rid of when you move, you are still taking stuff to the goodwill when you get to where you move. Maybe that's why I think our stuff has had babies. Hopefully by next week we will have a somewhat normal existance. School starts (I am jumping up and down and shouting hurray!!!!!) on Tues Sept 2 and our Miss Sariah will be a 3rd grader and Miss Sabrina will be in Kindergarten. It will be party time for mommy.

Well now that I have told you all our woe of unpacking and children who get into things faster then I unpack (love them). I must go and make sure that no one has died.

Monkey Girls

The other day (more like middle of the night) Sophie woke up at 2:30am and was up until 8:30am in the morning. Sometime in there Savannah woke up to eat. Never the less mommy was very tired and has decided that somehow the two of them are out to get me. The same day that I didn't get any sleep the girls were outside jumping on the trampoline in the rain.


The girls have been enjoying the pool at Bama and Bampa's house. Savannah LOVES the pool and loves getting in and hanging out in her floaty. Sophie LOVES to be in the pool in her lifejacket swimsuit (which makes her to brave).

Visiting the Smith's

We have been making trips to Yakima to visit daddy during the week. We have been staying at the Smith's house when we do this. This time Sophie and Didi bugs were wearing the same shirt so we had to get a picture of them together.

Party at Grandparents

Grandma Leigh invited the girls over for a tub party in her BIG bathtub. The girls had a lot of fun playing in the tub. After they were done destroying her bathroom she fed them the cutest little sandwiches and curly q carrots and chips. The girls enjoyed hanging out at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Aunt Cari's B-day Weekend

The weekend of July 26 was Aunt Cari's B-day. We had a party for her and Uncle Buddy surprised her by flying in from AZ. We had a lot of fun with all of the brothers and sisters and cousins.
