Picture time!

 I can't believe Addison just turned 6 weeks old.  I decided it was time to get her newborn pictures done before she got to big. She is 7 lbs now and is starting to fill out a little bit!  She was so good for most of the pictures and then at the end woke up and started crying!  I was so impressed with our photographer, she was able to calm her down and we got some really cute pictures.

Happy 4th of July

We love spending the 4th of July in Bear lake.  Sadie had fun painting all of the girl's nails like the flag.  The kids kept Grandma busy painting faces.  She painted the whole weekend and the kids loved it!  We had lots of fun at the lake boating.  The girls loved riding the tube and knee boarding.  Addie even got in the Lake!  They also had fun riding the Ranger and learning to play tennis.  We were a little sad there were no fireworks this year but we still had lots of fun together!

two in one!

We had such a special weekend.  On June 30th Brinley was Baptized and Addison was blessed.  It was  a special afternoon to be able to do both ordinances on the same day.  Brinley was supposed to get baptized the beginning of June but because I was having Addison that weekend she had to wait until the end of June.  It was so hard for her to wait but I think she thought it was pretty neat to have Addie blessed on the same day.  I think it will be a special memory for her.  Brinley was excited to be baptized on the same day as her friend Kinnley Cline.  They are such fun friends it made the day even more special!  Brinley was so happy that day and was glad her dad could be the one to baptize her.  We are so proud of her and the choice she made to be baptized.  She had lots of family and friends there to support her.

 Addison looked so cute in her blessing dress. She was one month old on her blessing day.  She is still pretty little so the dress was a little big on her.  Grandma Alldredge was able to fix it so it fit her better.  She was fussy all morning,  I was so worried she would cry through the blessing.  I think with a few angels from above she was a perfect angel!  She didn't make a peep!  I am so grateful for a wonderful husband who honors his priesthood and could perform these priesthood ordinances.  We had the family back to our house after for a lunch.  Eric made a cute video of Brinley that we all watched after.  It was a great day.

Happy Birthday Sadie!

I can't believe how time flies.  I can't believe Sadie is 11 years old now!  I remember like it was yesterday when I had Sadie.  She is such a sweet girl and we are lucky to have her in our family.  She is full of fun and so great with her sister's.  Sadie was very excited when she got snap circuit's for her birthday! She put a radio together all by herself and it really works!  I think she has her dad's mind!  She is also really into nail polish and is really good at painting cute designs on nails.  She was especially excited to go shopping with some gift cards she received.  Sadie is also becoming a great babysitter.  She took a babysitting class and now has a big bag full of activities for when she babysits.  I hope this year goes by really slow.  I'm not ready for her to move on to Young Women's or Jr. High!  

 Sadie had a fun Birthday Party swimming at her Aunt Kristi's house.  She invited some of her best friends.  They had fun swimming, making water balloon flip flops and getting their faces painted from Sadie's grandma!  It was a fun afternoon!  Sadie even made her own Birthday Cake!
