One of those days

Have you ever had one of those weeks.. where no matter what you do.. There is never enough time in the day.. No matter how early you get to bed, you can't wake up on time.. The alarm doesn't go off on time.. You have a list of 10 things to do, and you only finish about 7 of them.. This is the story of my life... I have been going and going non-stop its insane.. I feel like this woman like I am ready to pull my hair out.. If only had a few more hours during the day.. then I could be superwoman and get every thing done.. LOL


well because i have been going and going.. This is what happened.. I got SICK.. YUck!!! I was in bed for about 10 hours straight.. NOT FUN!!

Come on ladies what do u to.. How are you managing your time, and not getting sick.. I really have alot of stuff to do and can't seem to find nearly enough time to do it.. maybe I need to hire a maid?? what do you think, what do you do?? Don't be shy!!!

I love having girls!!!

wE Have been having so much fun lately.. Taylee is getting older and more aware of whats going on around her, and how to respond. She loves buckets and lucky her that Addison loves to play with her. The other day we came into the living room and found her inside this.. Addi was pushing her around the living room in it and they were both laughing pretty hard. Here are their outfits st. patricks day morning. Aren't they georgous in green??

More of Taylee in the bucket.. I love her cute smile.. Girls really are the best


OH Miss Addison.. She is loving learning how to read.. we could hear her laughing and playing and then all the sudden it went quiet.. and this is what we found her passed out in the hallway with a book over her head.. Like I said I LOVE my girls.. they always keep me laughing and make every day more exciting..



I love them both so much!!!

My house

We have almost had our house 2 years.. It will be 2 years in may.. I can't believe what we have done in the 2 years we have had it.. Before we could even buy the home we had to move the kitchen it was in the basement and the bank would not loan us the money on the home.. so we knocked down this wall.. It was crazy We then decided that we wanted our laundry room upstairs and this is how it tunred out.. Not to bad If I say so myself..

This is a few pictures of the kitchen downstairs as we were demolishing it.. It was so awful we only had 3 days to do it and I was pregnant with Taylee AND NO help at all.. My husband was such a trooper..

This is what we got with the finished product.. We stained the cabinets patched where the wall had been ripped out, and painted..


The bathroom downstairs had this paneling on it that was relly not our style so we ripped out the paneling and set forth on the bathroom..




We had to replace the toilet becuase it was leaking .. What a fun process we did this a week before I had taylee.



This is what it looked like after.. We textured all the walls and painted.. what a pain.. in the butt its no wonder we have finally started to finish a few small things.. It only took us 2 years to get over the shock and the torment of remodelling..

remember the cabinets we ripped out.. this is what we did to the room after we were done, we made it into a living room...
I'm so proud of my husband and what we accomplished.. so glad its over.. :)

You might want to sit down LOL this could take a bit...

My grandma died the first February and our dog was also killed. We had a vacation planned and weren't quite sure if we would still feel up to a vacation but we decided to head out anyway and went to Vegas.. We weren't planning on getting another dog for a while but we saw this little guy and had to get him.. Its funny that he is the same color as our cat.. They are such great friends!!


This is my sweet and amazing husband.. He played the bagpipes for my grandma at her funeral it was georgous..

Dan dad moved in wiht us and we re-did our guest room for him I love how it turned out!!!
Dan took this picture with my camera I thought it was so pretty!!!

Taylee

So my Taylee is 18 months she barely started walking the first of February. She is so stubborn Since November 18 She has been sick.. you can see how grey her poor eyes are and how pale her face is. We have been taking her to the doctor atleast once a week since. I finally called the doctors and said PLEASE do somthing I have a feeling something is not right with her and this is getting ridiculous.. They sent us to the hospital for some tests.. She had to have an x-ray and get some blood work done.. It was horrible she just cried..

They found out that she has bronchitis and allergies as well.. So she has to have breathing treatments for 45 days twice a day.. And she also has to have allergy medicine every night.


She hates the dang machine but is getting pretty good at it.. she must know it makes her feel better.

Hard to believe that she was just this little 6 months ago..

A very Bad week!!!

This week was a horrible week. On monday I got a phone call that my Grandma Sorensen had passed away. It was so hard. I knew that she was sick and was ready but I guess I wasn't. Who really ever is though ready to lose somone they love? She was such an inspiration to me. I learned so much about life from her. I miss her she use to get so excited everytime I would call her and loved to hear stories about the girls. What a great example. Her funeral was Friday. At teh services I slipped and fell and my shoes went into her burial spot. A memory I will never forget.

On Wednesday Our dog Titan got out. We looked for him everywhere, and we couldn't find him. He has gotten out a few times but has always come back. I called the pound, the dog catcher and even reported his chip and missing. On our way north to the funeral our neighbor called and said that her husband had to call dispatch. A dog had been hit, left for dead and was laying in the road. It was our titan.. He was such a good dog the first one I had even really been attached to.

Needless to say it was a very bad week. We lost 2 important people in our lives that we will miss very much.

More Christmas

Every year at christmas time we go to salt lake to see Dan Aunt Net. I feel bad we don't get to see her more because she is so good to our kids. But here is a picture that I took of everyone with her. Santa brougth Taylee a train this year. She thought Santa and presents were so much fun.


OH addison.. She was way to involved with her presents and so didn't want her picture taken..


Titan was so worn out, he has just made himself a part of this family. He loves silk blankets just like my girls so every chance he can get, he takes a turn with Addison's



This is Aunt Cami & Taylee we have been able to spend so much time with Cami the last few months it has been nice having her around.

We had such a fun Christmas this year. It gets more exciting the older your kids get. I was shocked Taylee was as into it as she was. She really liked opening presents.. \

Christmas Vacation

For Christmas this year Dan dan came and stayed with us, and then his sister Cami came on Christmas day with her boyfriend. We loaded up and went sledding and Taylee would not stop putting on dans hat. Doesn't she look so cute in it? This is Addison she was having so much fun she would climb up a big hill all on her own and go down. She had to have been frozen look at her poor face.

The Sunday before Christmas we went to Bountiful to the Barclay Family Christmas party.


This is one of the chairs in dans' grandmas basement I had to take the girls pictures in it because it matched the red shirts they were wearing.


Addison looked so cute in her red. She was so excited about Santa coming, and being able to open presents..



These are just a few of the pictures that I took, I need to post more but atleast you got a sneak peak :)
