Sorry Grandma's.... i've been a bad blogger lately :) hopefully these cute pictures will make up for the lack of posts lately!! We have had some funny moments in our household lately.... it's sure never dull with two sweet little girls to entertain us :) so here it goes... some fun and RaNDom moments !

One of my latest projects ... my friend darice needed some centerpieces for a baby shower and so this is what i came up with :) the two cakes on the ends are diaper cakes and the one in the center i made to try to mimic the diaper cakes but it's a real cake :) i thought they turned out pretty cute...

mia is becoming soooo playful!! i love it... she is so happy all the time and laughs easily. likes to play peek-a-boo and other fun games with us.

She is also a little lady... loves to put necklaces on, read books in maddie's bean bag chair, and basically likes to copy everything her sister is doing.

I couldn't resist blogging this picture :) hahaha!! i think it is such a cute crying picture.... sooooo DRAMATIC!

i found maddie the other day like this.... she decided to do her own dishes :) she washed all of them and put them in the dishwasher... and i love that she brings this stool everywhere she can't reach lately :)

Mia fell asleep like this the other day.... it's kind of hard to see, but she is sitting straight up and she was just wobbling back and forth .. funny!

Our little fahionista.... dressed for the day all by herself ... bet you couldn't have guessed that one :)

and the latest cute picture is from this morning when mia woke up around 7 and then while shawn was showering and she was playing in the bathroom she fell asleep on the tile!! sleepy head! shawn then moved her to the rug at least and threw a towel over her... she slept in another hour :) yay!

and maddie has done so good to sleep in her own bed all night every night, but last night she snuck in! but i think it is funny how she takes this purse EVERYWHERE!! she has the most random things in it and of course she wouldn't sneak into our bed without it!

So we recently went to Los Algadonas with my parents to explore their dental town we have heard so much about!! i had some work i needed done and since we don't have dental insurance it was much cheaper to get it done down there.... i won't go into to many details but my teeth look great now and we had a fun time down there as well :)

Me after my root canal..... :( not my favorite pass time.... but it went really well!

Our hotel had an awesome pool!! there was a lazy river, and a beach-like entrance and the pool was heated to 94 degrees!! we spent lots of time out there after our days getting teeth worked on in mexico :) Mia LOVED crawling in the super shallow part... she even fell asleep in the pool one of the days :)

Daddy and Mia :)

Factor Five :)

This past weekend we were able to be apart of the Lake to Lake race here in st. george!! it is a 50 mile relay from Gunlock lake to Sand Hollow lake!! we had a team of 5 people so that made it so we each ran approx. 10 miles. Shawn and i were so glad that we could do this race together!! his family was in town and so they were able to watch the kids for the 6-7 hours that it took for us to finish.... thanks!! :) we finished 30th overall out of 88 teams, and 14th in our division (boys/girls)! we were pretty happy with our results since this race was just for fun :) we hope to do it again next year!!

we have been having so much fun running together lately!! most mornings shawn will go run and then come back and tell me the route he went on so that i can do the same one and we can compare our times...

our team!! left to right.... kevin, Danni, Me (Laura), Shawn, Janelle. Don't we look hot after running 5o miles.... haha!!
