Winter Fun

When it snowed alot a few weeks ago Mark had to go help shovel at the church at 6:30am. When he wasn't back at 9:30 I started to wonder where he was. Well he was outside building Henley a snow castle. It even had a mot and a bridge and of course a door and window. Then they went and played all morning and we were almost late for church.

Henley walking over the bridge.

And of course there was a snowman to go along with it.

The little snow princess.

The night before that we went to our Ward Christmas Party and Henley got to see Santa. She told him she wants a Sleeping Beauty Dancing Barbie in a blue dress (not quite what Santa had in mind, so he told me, but hopefully he can figure that one out)
Waiting her turn.

Today she got "locked" in our room to take a nap since Beck was in her room. Well she hasn't liked naps lately so when it got quite I should have gone and checked but I was hoping she might really be sleeping. Um, I was wrong. I walked in and walked right back out and luckily Mark took a picture to share.

Yep, baby powder all over the place. At least she smelled good, but she got that stuff on most of Beck's clothes and all over his changing table. Well nap time over and we all had a good laugh.

Well life with two kids is pretty busy, so my blog has been neglected. Here is everything since Halloween.

Carving pumpkins with my family, there are however no pictures of the finished pumpkins.

We went with my fam to Island Park to my dad's cabin. As you can tell it was very eventful.

So natural with shopping bags

Random Pictures
Henley tasting what she thought was an apple, but was really an avacado
Sadly, we have had some terrible twos at our house. She turns three next month hopefully they go away but I doubt it.

Loving the high chair.
First baby food about a month ago. This boy loves to eat.
Luckily, Henley still absolutely adores her baby brother.

So handsome.

Videos of Beck

Here are some funny videos of Beck. Lately he has been talking like crazy and especially when Mark was talking to him in this video.

At his four month check-up he was about right where he should be in terms of weight and height. He is much bigger than Henley was at this age. He started rolling over about a month ago and now he does it all the time. Then he gets mad when he is on his tummy for too long, he forgets that he can roll back over if he wants.

October Fun

Well I still need to post Halloween pictures and I will, but I do have lots of pictures from the end of October to post first. First just an adorable picture of my two kiddies.
Henley got to dress up for gymnastics and had so much fun.
Her she is walking on the beam, stepping over the skeletons.

Swinging on the rope over the "scary mud".

Hanging on the bar.

Cute boy!

We also went to the pumpkin walk a few weeks ago with our friends. Henley loved being the princesses.

Her favorite Ariel.

Where the wild things are.

Clifford the big red dog.

I will post the rest of the Halloween pictures soon.

There's a first time for everything

When Mark's family came down for Beck's blessing, we decided to go bowling. This was Henley's first bowling experience and she loved it.

Here is Mark's dad, brother, and sister.

Mark's mom and Beck
Henley giving it her all.

Another first was Beck's first swimming experience. He really liked it and Henley was so excited that we were all going swimming together.
Mark got us an underwater camera a few months ago and it gets used alot.
Thank goodness we don't have to pay for swim lessons with the best teacher in town.
Beck was really happy the whole time. He loves bath time so I wasn't surprised that he loved the pool. It was a lot of fun and now Beck can start swimming and hopefully be the good swimmer that Henley is.
