I also had my first Home, Family, Personal Enrichment night that I was leader for. It took a lot of planning and I'm going to have to do even more for this next one because now I "know what I'm doing." Sort of... I'm really putting a lot more into my callings now though. I know that there is something for me to learn and that's why I've been giving this calling. So I'm going to try my hardest to learn whatever that is, and hopefully, Heavenly Father will let me keep the calling a little while once I have learned that so I can have a little break before I have to learn something new!
I read a really great article today that is the theme for mutual for 2009. It's a talk by President Monson from 2005. It's on the LDS.org website. Check it out! :) It made me cry, but that's pretty easy to do. :)

This is Noah and Ethan drinking some juice. Noah is in kindergarten and Ethan is such a riot!
Here is Ethan turning 3. Noah decided to blow the candle out for him.
This is all of us walking through Disneyland. From left to right, Connor, Laurie (Robby's mom), Mike (Brother in law) pushing the stroller with baby Jake, Craig (Robby's dad), then Robby and me holding hands. :)
Here is Robby holding Connor with Woody. He was a little nervous with all the cartoon characters walking around outside of the TV.
Here is Connor feeding Jake. What he's feeding him, I don't know. Most likely just dirty fingers.
Here is Aaron. He's getting so big! And what a head full of hair! He's such a cutie and I can't wait to see him for the first time in a few months! I wish it could be sooner!
Here are my twinners! David is on the left and Erik on the right. I was playing with both of them and they were smiling but then as soon as I take out the camera, their faces go blank. Well David sort of scowls at me. :) Erik is starting to "Goo" at people. He will tell you about goo all day long. They both are smiling really big when you tell them they are "cutie babies." We love to sing to them and they love it too!
Ok so that was a few more than a few but when you have the cutest nephews in the whole world, who wouldn't show them off? :)

So I had to go to the grocery store at about 9 o'clock tonight and I'm driving down this little curve on the way out of our neighborhood and I see something in the street. I slow down but cannot stop before I almost hit it. I realize this black little furry thing was actually a SKUNK! Holy cow. It was a really cute furry thing but it sprayed our car and it smells SO yucky! Luckily I had an air freshener, that was unopened, in the car. My car now smells like a mix of skunk and mulled cider. YUM!

Robby is busy playing with his new MacBook. He has been begging for MONTHS to get the MacBook Pro but it's a little out of our price range. He has a few side projects that will pay for this and for his MacBook Pro so I get the regular MacBook. :) It's a Win-Win!
I'm still working on school and it's doing a great job at keeping me busy, which I love! I'm taking a Photoshop class and a Nutrition class. Nothing earth shattering. They are both really fun and easy classes but I'm learning a lot! Hopefully what I'm learning will allow me to help Robby with web design.
We are leaving for Disneyland Thursday night and will enjoy a few days there with our Great Friends Joanna and Jared. We are going to be doing the Disneyland Challenge for the 3rd time. The challenge is pretty much a scavenger hunt through Disneyland. Robby's dad has been putting this on for the past 4 years. We learn so much about Disneyland and it's a blast! Hopefully I can post the questions after it's over so you can understand it a little better!
Well now that I've updated my whole life... you can get back to yours! I love you all! Hopefully good news will be coming soon! ;)

Erik and David sleeping after a long day at the doctor. Poor little guys were so worn out! They have both gained 11 oz in 9 days and grew 3/4 inch! They are SO big! Ok so relatively speaking they have gotten bigger! David is almost to 6 pounds and Erik is almost 6 and a half pounds! I just love these boys SO much!

Here he is with Holly, the proud mama!
We're so blessed to have 7 nephews now! 5 on my side and 2 on Robby's. It's time to add some girls to the mix! :) Aaron is in the NICU right now for fluid in his lungs so we are praying that he can get better quickly and be home with his mom, dad, and 2 brothers! We love you baby Aaron! Get better soon! Big Hugs and Kisses!

"When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn't stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother's heart, and she puts it into the baby's mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies." E.T. Sullivan
I can't wait until I have a little force that comes into the world and will change it for the better!

David on the left, Erik on the right waiting to go home. Too bad we had to go get their blood drawn right after this. They did not like that!
David & Erik waiting to get checked out by the doctor. David was SOOOO tired. Erik was kicking around earlier and was totally awake!
David was just chilling. He's so mellow. He cuddled with me for almost the whole visit. He did not like being on the table without clothes on!
Erik was just staring at me. He is so alert all the time. He likes to sleep but if something is going on, he wants to be in the middle of it.
David fell asleep and Erik wanted to play. David just looks so peaceful. Erik just loves to suck on that binky!
Both boys had their diapers changed shortly after this and peed all over their cute blankies. I love their different personalities and temperments. Sorry I still don't have pictures of their cute new outfits, hopefully tomorrow. I just can't get enough of these boys! And I don't have to stay up all night feeding them! This is a win-win! :) Almost.

Erik is on the left and David is on the right. They are both little burritos!
Here's my happy hubby holding two of our favorite nephews! David is on the left and Erik on the right!
Here I am with them. This time Erik is on the left and David to the right.
This is Erik looking around. He really wants to go back to sleep but we don't let him. :) At least for a few minutes!
This is David. Their outfits were swimming on them so we had to buy some premie sized stuff. I'll have pictures of that tomorrow. They are just too cute!
I'm really hoping when Robby and I have babies that someone will come over and take pictures and document our lives because I know my sister can't do it with her twins. I don't know how anyone could find the time! She certainly has her hands full with two bundles of joy!

This is David. He loves to sleep. He hates the light and you have to shield it from him so he doesn't furrow his brow. He's just so little!
This is baby Erik. I could only take a couple pictures of him and they all look the same because we couldn't take him out of his incubator. It was so cute though. Steve took me in to see him and he was crying really loud. We walked over to his bed and Steve started talking to him and instantly Erik stopped crying and fell right back to sleep. He knows his Daddy's voice! :)
After being fed, David started to wake up and was looking around a little. He's really alert and will just stare at you! When we were holding him, he kept hearing Kristi and tried to look for her to find her. He knows who Mommy is! :) We have a Momma's boy on our hands!
This is just a picture of David with his binky and you can see how small he really is. That is a normal sized binky they give you at the hospital. It is about half the size of his face. :) He's the sweetest thing ever though! Well, I guess one of the 2 sweetest things ever! :) I love them so much and have only seen them for a few minutes! I can't wait to see them grow and learn and learn to say my name! :)

This is for my sister's baby room. I've been working hard (like a couple hours) and it's turning out really cute. I'm thinking about selling them if anyone is interested. I still have to put a ribbon on the top to hang it by and ribbons connecting all the frames. Let me know what you think! :)

You Are Snow White!
Pure and trusting. You are a gentle soul who can get along with just about anyone. Everyone you meet instantly falls in love with you. How can they resist? You have a pure, lovable nature that's irresistable. Just don't trust everyone who comes across your path.
Which Disney Princess Are You?

Just wanted to give a quick shout out to my brother in law who graduated from BYU in History. He's a riot to be around and he's great for my sis. I'm so excited they are moving back to AZ especially with their little baby "Peanut" who is due in September and is going to steal my birthday month but at least I can play with him/her. :)
