Christmas and Rose's 3rd birthday

So much for posting every 2 weeks. Oh well. Here is the last post for 2011. Next will be 2012! I'm catching up!
Rose had a Woody and Buzz cake and loved it! 
I love making my girls their cakes even if they are kind of messy.
Rice Krispie cake with the Mils.

My santa baby.
She asked for a woody doll for 6 months before her birthday and loved him for about a week.
We love our window picture frames and grandma and grandpa do too.

Powell Family. Everyone but new baby cousin.
Mil Family. Everyone but Aunt Hannah.

Tea time!
Uncle Luke and new cousin.

Miss Z turns one...a long time ago!

Miss Z is almost 19 months now but I figured we needed to go back and post some of the past six months. I want to revamp my entire blog but for now this will have to do. My sister-in-law has a goal to post twice a month, I figure I can do that. We'll see.
So, back on December 2nd 2011 Miss Z turned 1. We didn't make it a huge deal but cake and friends is always a party!

Please ignore the orange pictures. I didn't want to spend time editing them and this is the light in our house at night.

September update

Recently, I have not been that great at blogging and I feel like this is not such a bad thing in my life right now. I am trying to spend more time with the girls. You know, that one on one time, not just in the same room time. I can spend way too much time on the computer. I spend nap time napping myself and doing house work and spending time with the Hub at nights. So, blogging is low on the list. Tonight the Hub is gone and the girls are sleeping so here I am.

Here are the most recent pictures of the girls. Rose (almost 3) is just like an almost 3 year old should be. Sass and more sass but so sweet. How do they do that at the same time? She loves her sister. She carries her own baby around everywhere and even has a sling for her. She dances all day long and sings. Oh, she can only dance if she is wearing a skirt and tells me I can't dance because I am not wearing a skirt. I guess I can dance on Sundays. Miss Z (almost 10 months) is growing so fast. I thought the time went by fast with Rose. She can say a few words like mama (only when she is sad or hungry) and bye bye and hi. She imitates anything, especially dogs and loves Rose as long as Rose doesn't touch her and try to pull her by the leg across the floor. She isn't walking yet but close. This girl is the sweetest thing. She is a snuggler and sleeps between the Hub and I most nights. I stay very busy and have to remind myself these are daughters of God everyday so I don't get too stressed or worn out. I can say that when I take time to think about these angels I feel like I am in heaven.

This one (even if the picture isn't all that great) is just way too cute.

Cheyenne, Arizona, Easter and More

April started out with a trip back to Cheyenne for Grandpa Shumway's burial and Celebration of Life service. It was great to see members of the family and hear many stories of Grandpa. We will miss Grandpa greatly but I am so thankful for our knowledge of the plan of salvation and the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ who makes it possible for us to live as eternal families.The hub and his grandpa.
Rose and Grandpa B. Being silly as always.
Mini B and Aunt S.

On our way back to Nebraska my mom and I got on our previously scheduled flight from Grand Island, NE to Arizona to visit my grandparents. It was a long trip involving three time zones but well worth it. Rose really wanted to pick the oranges.
While we were there we got to see my Aunt Amy. It was her first time meeting my girls.
4 generation picture. My grandma is now 80 and can handle the craziest of great grandchildren.
Rose "helping" me make orange juice. Hmmmm, I want some right now!
We also met up with our friends from Laramie. Its always so nice to see good old friends.
This was Rose's favorite part of the trip. The daily golf cart ride.
Traveling with two young kids is not for sissies. Thanks mom for making the trip easier!
After we got home it was time for more fun in the sun. (Ok, nobody look at the white trash baby changing table in our backyard, embarrassing).

Searching for Easter eggs at our friends' parent's house. Yes, we still have parties at our parents' houses.
So much candy but Rose needed a little more.

5 months old and so darn cute!
Not much to say about this picture. We have two of God's greatest angels.
