In the background you'll see egg shells. They've also been enjoying egg racing....I've had to limit them to one egg a day:)

The girls and I hung out at the pool side. They were a hit. Almost every one had to stop and ask about them. It's so much fun having little girls.

This morning Chris said he saved a couple of cars for the SLC auction today and asked me to check it out...since I had much better luck with the live auction yesterday I knew that I needed to get on at 9am and I had many other tasks to complete so here is my multi-tasking efforts.
1. Dressing Eliza as I'm waiting for the cars to come up that I want to bid on.
2. My breakfast, slimfast.
3. The phone bill I prepared for Chris so he can get reimbursed at work.
4. My sticky notes of the cars & how much I'm going to bid.
5. The actual live auction...my computer honks at me when the cars on my watchlist come up.
6. Landons clothes that I need to put on him in between bids.
7. A content Alisha who is next to get dressed.
6. Landon pulls the cushions off at least 3 times a day...lets just say it drives me crazy! Anyways, this morning I decided that I needed to take the opportunity to vacuum out the couch since he reminds me about 3 times a day how gross it is.
7. A stripped down boy so I can get his clothes on quickly.
And I wrote this post all while I was waiting for my cars to come up!

On Monday we headed to the Rexburg parade. It was a beautiful day and the boys loved to catch the candy. Landon would quickly pop what he caught into his mouth.
And of course the girls celebrated the same way the boys did but in a much more mellow manner. The little sweeties slept through most of the day. I'm so glad they are good enough that they don't stop us from going & having a little bit of fun!

So...I'm just going to do a few at a time & try not to overwelm myself. We spent a night in Teton Village (right outside Jackson hole) and it's absolutely gorgeous up there. We love the hotel and all the kids did fabulous! I was very anxious when I knew the dates & how little the girls would be.
We did family pictures that morning (I'm trying to steal them off the photographers website with no success). I have a complaint about ALL our family pictures. We did family pictures over six years ago & I was pregnant with Jaden...then we did them again over 3 years ago and I was pregnant with Landon. in these I just gave birth to twins...REALLY! I gave my mom a hard time about it:):):)
After the pictures we let the kids run around and it made me smile. Here's some pictures of some of their fun with their cousins...I'm so grateful for their cousins!
Time travels so fast yet at the same time it seems like these little girls have been part of our family for a long time....we just love them!
Eli loves to eat and is much more active then Alisha. Alisha is almost always mellow & sweet and she's still a lot smaller then Eli. About two weeks ago Eli rolled over but I don't think it's a skill she's mastered but that she kicked her legs and the momentum and weight pulled her over.
They sometimes love tummy time & sometimes hate it. Alisha typically lays her head on the ground and is content. Eli grunts and tries pulling her head up so she can look around.
About a week ago I decided that I wanted to see how they did bathing together. Both girls typically would lay still in the bath water and relax. When put together they kick and flail...grab each others arms & legs. It's so fun to watch. They both also turn their heads so one eye is under water and look around with their eye open. It's a little creepy looking. I'm not sure why they react to bath time this way when they are together but I'd imagine it feels a little bit like the womb. I had Jaden watch one baby while I went to get the other one to put in the bath and his reaction to the kicking & flailing was "I could watch this all day." It really is adorable.
We love you little girls! I'm excited for all the adventures to come!
