Some Family pics!

So this shoot was rough for us but we got a few good ones. Sarah did a great job but our kids were tired, we were rushing, i wore a maternity style shirt and Brandon kept squinting. So my advice DON"T DO ANY OF THE ABOVE. Make your family pics better by picking a day that is stress free and everyone is generally happy and not hungry, hot or tired! Wear stuff that's slimming, and OPEN YOUR EYES, nice and Bright!

I'm Back in action

SO as most of you know, I've been a bit busy. But now that I've had the boutique, made the wedding cakes, and visited the cousin(Jamie), I'm finally HOME and ready to DO NOTHING!(yeah right like that's gonna happen). No, really, I won't be making commitments to anyone for a while i really need a brake and i need to get my house back in order and so on.
So, this is what you missed so far...
Brielle CUT HER BANGS at Gma's house, while there for a visit. Betty does hair all the time and Brielle was just imitating her. It was inevitable and i find it funny. I'm not mad at all b/c it was three days after her Pediped Photo shoot(luckily). Brielle has also increased her vocab 10 fold. She's way too opinionated for me right now. I ask her to do something or give her the two choice options and if she doesn't like it she says things like" not right now, mommy" "i'm waiting" "No thanks, mommy" At least she's not yelling when she refuses. She's very polite when she's being a stinker! She also is
obsessed with swimming everyday but, we only swim a few times a week. Last week we swam and then came in and made melted chocolate chips with a touch of oil to made fondue! We dipped marshmallows, pretzels and strawberries in it and what a mess it made! Here's Our girl and YES, i added the smile to her cute belly. She thought it was so cool. "My Tummy is happy- It says MMMM, mommy" she says.
When i was gone Brandon told me that one morning He was asking her to get on his back so, she could have a piggy back ride down the stairs and she replied
"I, I Captain!" and jumped on his back.(sorry for the grammar error on I, I, i think it's Aye but, i'm not sure)
ARIA is doing great! She pulls up on anything, traverse furniture and her favorite place is the sliding glass door! she likes to watch the dogs and birds and it's her favorite thing to squawk at! She loves screaming in excitement and singing little songs. She's a loud baby and she so much fun. She now can Click her tongue and blow raspberries to you if you ask! She hold herself up with one hand and pushes Brielle's Ikea chair across the floor a little. I hesitate to give he the walker thing b/c i'm afraid she'll fall flat on her face once the wheels move! we shall see. 
She did great up in ID with me. She was so much fun to enjoy and tote around going store to store. Here's Aria at Jamie's Shower.
I'll post more on that later!

Our Big Girl and Our Busy Lives!

Sorry this is so short but i have to let you know what we've been up to. Besides the daily grind(eat, workout, errands, lunch, nap time, chores, wake up, get dinner ready etc..) I've been busy with getting all this stuff ready for The Boutique Market that were having at our place. I have so much still to do and on top of that, i have a 3-tiered wedding cake as well as 2 sheet cakes i have to bake(wednesday), decorate(thursday) and deliver on Saturday. Also, Brielle got a modeling job for Pediped Shoes( pronounced PEE_D_ PED). I guess i pronounced it wrong for the last two years. Oops! The photo shoot is tuesday afternoon. Then on Wednesday i start baking and it goes on. Aria is standing and traversing like nobody's business and she's getting the bumps to prove it too! Brielle is great but getting her last top 2 yr molar in, so, she's a bit whiney! I'm tired and ready to stop being busy for a bit. I probably won't blog for a while b/c i'm going to ID to see Jamie on the 14th but, if i do then great. More later(hopefully) 

Love you Mom!
