Letter to the TOOTH FAIRY!

Abbie is too cute, she wrote a letter all by herself to the tooth fairy and taped her tooth to the bottom!
It now sits under her pillow waiting....
Her letter reads: Dear Tooth fairy, I hope you will turn this tooth in too sum money, luv Abbie

Abbie 1st tooth!!

This has been a long awaited event at our house. Abbie has been wanting to lose teeth, like some of her older friends, for quite some time! She has had two loose teeth for a few weeks now. The last couple of days one has been on the verge of falling out! We have been waiting for Ben to come back into town so he could be here for the big event. (He flies home tonight) I sent Abbie to brush her teeth this morning and out it came! She was so excited!! She said," It didn't even hurt, I lost it on accident!!"with a big grin on her face! She is so proud of her missing tooth! We called Daddy right away, he was so proud of her! She asked me if she would still be able to eat!?! It is so fun to see my kids going through all these fun little milestones, it seems like I was just there!! I love it!!

Swimming Pool Summer!

We have been having a blast this past month at the pool. Abbie and Iz took swim lessons, it was so fun! Abbie learned so much and got to pass to level 3 for 7-9yr olds!! (she wants to join the swim team:)) Iz and I had our class together, she went from pretending to dip her head in to jumping in and going under water!! If you have come to the pool with us you will have heard her say,"watch this!" right before she goes under water. I wish I could get a pic of it, she keeps her eyes open and has a big grin on her face under water, its so funny! Gma Johnson has been able to come with us a lot and we even got to swim with Gpa Johnson a couple of times! It has been so fun..... I am so proud of my little swimmers!

My girls!

Girls, girls, and more girls! The countdown is on..... we have just under 3 months left before our girls double! We are so excited. It is going to be a pink haven around here. Ben is such a good sport. People always say the nicest things when they find out we are having two more girls...."Ben will be well taken care of" .... "you are such good girl parents" ..... "that's nice you can stick with what you already know" Its so funny to hear people say these nice things with a hint of condolence behind them!!:) We are very very excited have more girls to finish off our family! Thanks to all for the support and get ready to take a baby or two for the day:)

Happy 4th!!!!

We had such a great day! We have Ben's parents in town and my parents came over for the big show! Ben put on our fireworks display, he did a great job lighting all the fireworks with sparklers because we didn't have any punks (or so we thought) we found out with the last three or four fireworks that the punks were in the bottom of box!:) Ben and his dad went golfing in the morning and then we had a BBQ and fireworks with popsicles! It was a lot of fun and my girls got to stay up three hours past bedtime.. yikes!!! They LOVED watching all the colors they were cheering , clapping, and dancing in the light!! It was more fun for me to watch them than the fireworks! Happy Independence Day!!

DiScOvErY GaTeWay

Our last day in SLC!!! We actually had a lot of fun and the month went by so fast for all of us! We were able to do all of our favorite activities while we were up there. One of the best places to visit rain or shine (or snow) is the Discovery Gateway Museum. The girls LOVE it! They have so many fun things going on all day and the kids can touch and play with everything, its all hands on! They love to put on plays, draw pictures, make movies, build with blocks, 'fly" a helicopter, run the cash register at the grocery store, row a boat... there are just endless activities going on! They keep busy for hours and it wears them out! We still had our family pass from when we lived up north so it was perfect. We were able to go several times! SO FUN!!!

Time with Daddy

Our girls love to get up at the crack of dawn!! (ie 6am) Durning the month of June, while we were living in the hotel in SLC for Ben's work, he had to put in major late hours and some all nighters to get this BIG project finished. So every morning they would come in and "play" with him before he had to get back to work! They would climb all over him, but the absolute favorite was diving off of him. I say diving because they would plug their little noses and pretend to be swimming in the ocean (like Ariel). They loved doing this and it was a fun way for them to spend some time with their Daddy!
