The girls having their panda's sit up to the table for breakfast. Their stuffed animals or babies are frequently in attendance when we eat breakfast or lunch.Kesler just sits and chills in his bumbo.
Kesler has to sleep with a blanket smashed into his face, it use to scare me but it seems to be the only way he soothes himself to sleep. He also loves to sleep on his side, sometimes he will make a few fussy noises at night and I just have to go in and move him his hips so he's on his side and he instantly goes back to sleep.
The girls sporting their new stylin dresses from grammy.
While the weather has been so perfect we have been going on lots of walks outside. The girls in the pink jogging stroller and Kesler in his blue stroller. We go on this paved path that goes down the canal and it has been so much fun just talking with Travis looking at the different houses and yards. This is a sure sign that Travis loves me, he use to hate going on walks (he didn't see the point) but now he does all the time because he knows how much I love it and true be told I know that he is catching the vision as to how it can be so enjoyable :)
The other day we walked three to four miles just getting lost looking at houses and talking. It was so fun but we worried that the kids would get too much sun on the way back so Travis covered Kesler's face with his hat, he was too cute I had to take a picture!
I love this picture of our cute kids before bed!
My mom came down and spent the weekend with us, it. was. so. FUN! My mom is such a ginormous part of me and my happiness, I love her to PIECES!!!
The girls are so crazy about grandma, they had been looking forward to her visit ever since I told them she was coming!
My mom's birthday is on October 19th so when she came we had to celebrate a little. We had her (and mine as well) favorite cake, oatmeal apple.
Grandma also took Kaydence out to celebrate her birthday that is coming up on November 9th. She took Kaydence shopping and Kaydence fell in love with everything pretty fast, grandma SPOILED her!
Kaydence and Marley are so opposite in a lot of things. Some examples: Kaydence loves to save her treats and takes a long time to eat. I've also noticed she saves her favorite part of the meal for last. Marley eats her treats as soon as they hit her palm and her mouth is full to the brim of food while she is eating, she takes such huge bites. Marley also eats her favorite part of the meal first. Their favorite part of every meal is usually different too, like last night Marley ate all her broccoli and I had to tell her to eat all her brown rice before she could have more. The exact opposite with Kaydence.
They are both really good eaters though and eat really healthy, I always have them try everything (four bites to see if you really like it and 9 out of 10 times they do like it). Even things like grilled tilapia, chicken and butternut squash stew with quinoa, grilled chicken and spinach pasta, steak, any soup, etc. (just to name some of the ones we've had this week). It surprises me sometimes how much they like certain things.
Back to examples: Kaydence likes things to fit really tight -her shoes a little too small, her hair really tight, her bows tied around her waist super tight, her socks tight to her feet, etc.. Marley likes everything really loose - her hair loose, her shoes big, no socks or tights, her clothes really loose she likes to wear t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops EVERY day. While Kaydence likes to wear dressy outfits, complete with accessories and layers (under shirts and leggings to stay modest, she is always very conscientious of being modest). They both LOVE to talk and are VERY dramatic but in different ways. Kaydence talks to anyone and everyone while Marley is more shy and won't talk to people she doesn't know. Once Marley knows you she will talk and tell stories in the most animated fashion you could imagine, its hilarious. Kaydence is more dramatic in expressing her emotions while Marley is more dramatic in how she tells stories.
Marley had her first nightmare last week, she woke up yelling, "MOMMY, MOMMY!" When I came in to hold her she told me the spiders were going to get her. She had a nightmare about spiders. This morning when she came out of bed she gave me a hug and told me that the Lamanites were going to kill her (meaning that's what she dreamed). Sad, maybe we should be less animated when we read the scriptures with them (we just try and make it entertaining for them but I didn't think scary).
Kesler is my happy little man that fills me with smiles every day. He is scooting and rolling all over the floor and sticking everything in his mouth. It's also funny how if you startle him he starts laughing. He also laughs when you whisper in his ear or blow raspberries on his neck or tummy. He is slowly getting more use to letting other people hold him, if he sees me leave it's all over though.
He is also such a good eater, he eats more than my girls did at this age. When he eats a lot of food (not the cereal but carrots, sweets potatoes, or squash) he has a HUGE blow out and it is everywhere on his pants in the bumbo. This is so gross but I wanted to document how his bumbo looks the day after he's had vegetables, YUCKY! And this isn't even documenting it all over his pants and up his back!
The girls and Travis have been addicted to the Ipad! It is pretty amazing, I really love all the educational activities they have on it for the girls. I can't believe how much this will probably revolutionize education! There are tons of amazing tools to study the gospel as well for us and for the girls, its really awesome!
Our cute kiddos!
HAPPY 28TH BIRTHDAY DADDY!!!
We painted pumpkins for FHE, so we got the girls in scrubby clothes, laid down papers, put on some fun Halloween music off pandora and let them have at it.
I LOVE THESE PICTURES OF OUR LITTLE GUY!!! He is always so happy I get out the camera and can't stop taking pictures
After the FHE lesson the next week we made bats out of egg cartons and paint
Marley was getting tired :)
We had to wait till the next morning to glue the eyes on after the paint was dry.
They wanted another one with me, where I hold out the camera.
