We wanted to take a quick trip just to gettaway and spend time together so what better place for some wholesome family time than VEGAS :) we stayed at the Rio for a night... went swimming.. ate at Pf changs (mmmm.. lettuce wraps)... visited nordstrom rack.. met up with old friends.. and just had fun together :)
How sweet is this little girl?!
our kids are such great little travelers :) they sleep, watch movies, eat snacks, play, and giggle with each other :)
i have the most handsome man that holds my hand, kisses my lips, and takes such good care of me and our girls!!
Sleeping Beauties... we decided to try putting mia in bed with mads instead of bringing up the pack-n-play... worked out great and they thought it was pretty fun too.
lets play "i spy".... (i will give you a hint... mia had no pockets to put her sticky treat) haha!
My 3 year old photographer :).. not bad eh?
when summer comes to st. george we LOVE to do all sorts of water activities to cool us down :) this is one of our favorite.. the Library splash park :) The girls had alot of fun and wore themselves out :)
Maddie had fun jumping from rock to rock and making new friends...
mia loved taking in everybody playing around her... she loved the water too :)
and after the splash park... we came home and took naps and then headed for the pool.... yes... the warner girls are water bums :)

okay so i have mentioned this girls site and i'm gonna do it again and i probably will talk about it in the future :) i LOVE this site... MADE!!!! you have to check it out if you love to sew :) i frequent this site and i am always wanting to experiment using her fabulous tutorials .. but because i still DREAM of my one day craft room i have to unload my laundry room of all my supplies... scatter them ALL over my living room/kitchen... and then i can allow the creative juices to flow :) i have had my eye on these "market skirts" for many moons now and i finally tried them!! super fun and cute!! here are the results...
i have so much fun making things for my girls....
i HAD to re-create her yellow one!!! it was perfect and i LOVE yellow :)
i thought a fourth of july skirt would be fun.... still need to figure the measurements to make mia one too :)
i have also been eyeing this fun project... cute little bags for whatever!! i lined them with vinyl and they were soooo much fun to make... i learned soooo much just following these two tutorials of hers... seriously like taking an online sewing course :)
cute huh?! mia's red tights that i have NEVER used got cut up and put on this one :)
i was giddy when i finished my first one of these... i just had to keep going...
so here's another
and i didn't stop there ... i made three more! super fun!!

Every day I watch my kids play and interact with each other and us and every day they amaze me with something new!! i can honestly see them growing physically and mentally EVERYday!! i LOVE my girls so much and i am trying to cherish each day...i couldn't be more happy than i am right now.. able to stay home with my girls and PLAY all day :)
Mia.... 15 months
-can say a few words... including, Hi (my favorite.. she sounds so sweet when she says hi :), bye bye, dada, mama, more (she signs this one), ball, that (dat), baba (for drink), Ta Da (like you'd say after a trick), and wow.... i could be forgetting a few.
-LOVES her stuffed monkey :) at night all we have to say is "you want your monkey?" and we hand it to her.. she gives up a big grin and a little giggle, and then we put her in her crib and she plays with him untill she falls asleep. Mia is sooooo good about nap/bed time!! i can just put her in when i know its time and she will either play for a bit before she falls asleep or lay right down and snooze :) THANK YOU MIA!!!
-Mia is deffinately a paci girl... she will do almost anything to get her hands on one of those bad boys .. haha! i really have to hide them when she is awake because if she catches her eye on one.. it's all over :)
- mia still prefers crawling, but we are thinking she will walk anyday (we have been saying that for 3 months now :) .. but really.. she took seven consecutive steps at church the other day and keeps taking a couple here and there at home...
- mia's favorite foods would be... BANANAS!!!! pasta with red sauce, cafe rio tortillas, any drink, she likes waffles in the mornings, and she will pretty much devour ANY fruit , oh and how could i forget otter pops.. the must have for a st. george summer :)
- i can't look at mia without falling in love all over again..
-she dances to the music.. super cute
-when i point a camera at her and say cheese she tilts her head and smiles.... what a good girl! maddie still hasn't quite mastered that one.
-mia takes one good nap a day in the afternoon.. this is when i get some good sun laying out in my back yard.
cute little sisters..
Mia with her 2 favorite things.... Monkey and paci! what a happy camper :)
and one more time for mommy, cheese! (notice the head tilts on all 3)
sick baby... mia had a fever for a couple of days (we think teething) so i made her a bed on the floor and she was so content to just lay there and watch movies and nap all day .. sweet girl!
Maddie.... 3 1/2 yrs old
- Maddie just started gymnastics :) she is sooo cute when she goes.. i feel like she is getting sooo big but when i watch her at the gym she is sooo tiny compared to all the other girls... guess she's still my baby :)
- some cute phrases that commonly come out of mads mouth... "i know what we can do..... we can play hide and seek!!!!" (said with rolling enthusiasm)... " let's go get mia together... because we are both mommies and we are BEST FRIENDS" ...
-likes to dress herself!
-loves to ride bikes with all the neighborhood kids
-puts on my makeup almost daily!!!! aahhhhh
-favorite drink is root beer (any brown soda is root beer) and chocolate milk
- loves to make and drink protein shakes with daddy in the morning :)
-has been changing her identity lately to a different princess each day...
- Sings and performs all the time!!! She Sings at the top of her lungs and LOVES to show off.. haha!
-is a great artist... she draws people all the time with eyes and eyeballs, ears, arms, legs, hair, a nose, and a smile... i seriously am impressed by many of her drawings :)
-recently hung onto the garage door as it was going up... all of a sudden i hear.. "help mommy help!!" and i look over to see her hanging from the garage door like 5 feet off the ground.. haha! i quickly grabbed her down and she was holding onto me soooo tight.. i think the whole ordeal may have scared her a bit :)
we LOVE this girl !! she makes us laugh
here is our re-inactment of maddie's ride on the garage door today :) needless to say i wasn't able to ask her to "hold that pose while i grabbed my camera"... so i thought to give you the idea of what happened i would just re-do it :) Funny huh !!... i just wish i could have seen the whole thing... slowly riding up !
