Most of you probably know that Paul has been traveling for work for a while now. He works in the Bay Area right now and is gone Monday through Friday. We have somehow started this tradition where Paul takes Abbi's special Shamu stuffed animal that Grandma Raine got for her at Sea World to the Hotel with him and brings it back home with him. Well, he left Sunday night and Monday morning Abbi woke up and found her special Shamu in her tent and just started bawling! It was the saddest thing ever! "Daddy forgot to take Shamu to the Hotowel!" And she was already so sad last night when he left and was crying for him all night. This just about broke my heart!

Here are our new family pictures. My kiddos sure are cute aren't they?


I just finished reading this book and I think if you are a mom or planning on being a mom you should definitely read this book. It's by an LDS author, but it's not a lot of scripture or quotes, it's really just kind of a "mom to mom" dialogue from someone who's been there, done that. Anyways, check it out if you get a chance.

Disney on Ice!

Are you guys as excited about this as I am? Paul and I are taking Abbi to see all her favorite people skate around on ice! She is so excited. She's watched the little video on about a million times! She's already picked out the princess dress she wants to wear when she goes! Oh my goodness, she is such a girl!

Sorry we've been out of the blogging world for a while. We've been sick with the flu all week. No fun! We are finally starting to feel better.

Also, some good news. I FINALLY got a new point and shoot, so I'll be uploading some photos and videos within the next few days!

This is what happens when you leave your 1 year old alone for 30 seconds...

So we were at the Hotel visiting Paul and there isn't much for the kids to do there and they get a little bored. Well, Paul and I were busy getting Abbi out of the Tub (a two person job sometimes) and we both thought, "Jack's being way too quiet" And well of course, this is what we found in the other bathroom:

Notice how Paul's computer is by the toilet. He took that in the bathroom too, I'm just glad he didn't put that in the toilet! One year olds are so much fun!

Abbi's New Dress

I made Abbi a new dress. It's not perfect, but I thought it turned out pretty cute! And she loves it and that's all that matters to me! Next Project: A Dress for Me! Yikes!

Sorry about the crummy pictures, I'm still without my beloved point and shoot so my phone will have to do for now!
Check out Abbi's Ballet poses! She just started ballet and absolutely loves it!
