I decided to build my sewing skills by making Claire's costume this year. She wanted to be Cinderella and we had blue fabric so it ended up being just as cheap to make it as buy one, except this way I learned a lot about making clothing :) I'm excited to start my next sewing project ( a cowl neck shirt) Wish me luck.
You might think that Craig was dressed as a cowboy for Halloween but that's actually how he looks when he comes home from work :) Pretty cool huh?

I'm a lucky mom. I get to play with these adorable girls all day. 'Course right now, Claire is yelling at me to plug in her movie (not so adorable) but I got the good stuff on video so I have proof they're cute and I can remind myself when I need to. Anyway, I hope you like these videos. Juliet is growing up so much. So is Claire!

I feel like the luckiest mom on earth when I catch moments like this! I get to see all the times Juliet laughs at Claire just because she decided Claire's her favorite person. I see the times when Claire leans over and hugs Juliet's head in an awkward and tender way :) I love these two lovely ladies and the light my life up.
July was a fun month and her in Manassa Pioneer day is a huge celebration. There are two days of parades, a banquet, rodeos, a demolition derby,live bands, carnival rides, a great hamburger stand, and dances! It was great to see all of the town come alive for the celebration and everyone was busy entertaining family that came into town. It was wonderful! I wonder if I'll ever find a place to live that I love as much as Manassa. 
 
I think it's okay for me to say that I have the most beautiful daughters on the planet! They are sweet and loving! Sometimes Claire and I fight over who loves each other more. The only one who might have place to say they love these girls as much as I do is of course Craig. I was prompted to think of my happiest memories last week, and even though they're pretty new, my happiest memories are now the days when I watch Craig tickle or tease the girls and they laugh and tackle him. There's nothing novel about it, but there's so much love and peace in our home especially on those days that they've hard for any other memories to compete.

Hello friends/family we have a new camera, and I'll be posting some of our new exciting pictures soon. It's late now and I'm going to bed soon, but I wanted to put at least something down. I'm trying not to realize that I'm lonely so I thought it I distracted myself with everything possible it wouldn't hit me. Craig and his brother Scott went to the mountains this morning to build fence and they won't be back for a while. It hasn't been a full day but I miss him and am dreading tomorrow. I should have gone to bed hours ago, because I'm babysitting a set of wonderful kids. I'll go now, and post later :) I love you all, wish me luck if you want.

We're Buying A New Car!

I'm very excited because just this morning Craig found the perfect car for us! We've been searching and praying to find a car that will be safe and reliable for us when the new baby comes and hopefully for years to come. Today, Craig found it! It's a 2004 Buick LeSabre, and it has just over 27,000 miles on it! It fits us so nicely too! It's roomy, has a huge trunk, and it's gold! (not as gold as the lovely car we have now, but enough to look great). We test drove it today and fell immediately in love. So...we've put a small down payment on it and on Monday the keys will be ready and we can bring that beautiful car home :) To give you an idea of what the car looks like I found pictures and I'll post them here.

Texas Roadhouse

video
We've found out this summer that Claire loves ribs! This was her second time to Texas Roadhouse and she still loves the ribs. We found out that she likes spicy food pretty well when she kept asking for the buffalo wing bones. She's sweet, we love her, I'm glad we get to keep her :)
