You can take a ride in my big green tractor!

We have been so busy with yardwork! Its gonna make me never want to leave this house.

I'll take 4!

Well if the saying "It takes 21 days to form a habit" is true... I'll take 4 days of this little guy sleeping for 6+ hours straight! No matter what time we put him to bed in the evening, he wakes up at 3. So for the last 4 nights he has gone to bed an hour earlier each night and slept til 3 a.m. That could possibly be the most sleep I have gotten in 2 years! YAHOO! No more babies for me anytime soon! He sure is cute though, don't ya think?

I took some pics of my friends little boy the other day.. isn't he just a handsome little guy?
Handsome enough to be my little girls boyfriend! Or so I hope in the future... Lilly Loper sounds pretty darn cute if you ask me!

So as most of you know, Lilly has had only 2 teeth since her first ones came in January. The other day I took a gander in her mouth and found she has 7, yes I said 7 teeth coming in as we speak, and most of them are molars. Isn't that insane? So this explains her sweet personality lately, diarrhea, and runny nose. I feel so sad for her. Her bottom is RAW. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do for this poor little girl??????

Alpine, AZ... Labor Day Weekend 09

Labor Day weekend we made the small journey up to Alpine Arizona with 0ur friends/cousins Chet and Erika. It was so nice to get out of the heat and head up to the mountains. We had so much fun sitting in the swings on the porch watching the rain, going for walks to the pond, and watching the boys shoot guns and their bow! Our other cousin Bryce and his wife Marci met us up there for one of the days. It was nice to eat a lot of junk and relax. Lilly loved being wild and free! We hope to return soon.

Welcome Home Elder Hill

Yesterday Josh's youngest brother Joel came home from his mission after serving in Paraguay for 2 years! Even though it was a small gathering we welcomed him with big out-stretched arms! It was so good to see him!

This face says it all...

Outside the church waiting for Joel to meet with the Stake President to be released.
Uncle Joel holding Tate for the first time... luckily he didn't spit up!We had a dinner for him at my parents house after his release.. a yummy AMERICAN meal!
It was Candice's birthday, (Joel's girlfriend) what an awesome birthday present!

Lilly sure enjoyed Candice's birthday cake!
