Fall into Winter!





We have had a fun few weeks! I took Kiyah & Kenidi to the park to get some pictures before it starts to snow & covers up all the fall leaves. They did so much better than I expected & I think that the pics turned out pretty cute too :)
    For Halloween me & my sister Angie made the girls some tutus. One was a angel & had a shirt that said "I am the good twin". And the other was a devil & had a shirt that said "I am the evil twin". They looked so adorable & when I took them trunk or treating on Friday night everyone said I had to switch them the next day so they wouldnt get a complex. Which made me laugh because that is what my Mother told me when I first told her about the costumes! So I did end up switching them.
    We went trick or treating in my sisters neighborhood first, the girls were slow pokes! But I think they had a good time. Angies kids were dressed up as Woverine(Topher), A construction worker (Chase) & Optimus Prime(Nick). They looked really awesome!

     We then went to my moms for a appetizer night & went to a few houses in our neighbor hood. By this point me & the girls were pretty pooped out! But we still had to go to Brandons grandmas house for his grandpas birthday cake. Brandon met us there because he had to work.

     All in all it was a pretty good Halloween even though I was kind of a grump the whole night!

Wicked awesome boutique?

Me & my sisters really want to start a little hobby business. We want to make tutu's & bows & flowers & whatever else. It all started when I wanted to try to make tutus for Kenidi & Kiyahs halloween costume. We went & bought the tull & they actually turned out really cute. We were pleasantly surprised. Kenidis  is hot pink & white(she is an angel), Kiyahs is red & black (she is a devil) We even made one for my cousins baby Paige & it had a matching bow. We cannot decide what to name this "company" though. I like wicked awesome boutique, but Angie thinks we will attract witchs or something lol. So we are now considering something with Attimay(our moms nickname) or something with Penelope(my moms dog haha) I only have a picture of Paige in her tutu & bow. I will have to get some up of my girls. Oh & also, my mom is really great at making pens & boxes & all kinds of  stuff out of bakable clay, those will also be part of our "company" :)

Here comes the Bride!


My younger sister Michelle is going to be getting married on Febuary 6th. She is marrying Rich, they met over a year ago at Wal Mart in the parking lot! Then he purposed to her last Thanksgiving. We are all so excited. She is going to be having a valetines wedding with red & pink. But it will not be cheesy, just classy :)This week she got her bridals done & was so pretty. They were at the State Capitol building. I was amazed how pretty the place actually was. It was Me, My Mom, my sister Angie, Cousin Mindy, Cousin Jessica & Friend Chas oh & of course Michelle. There were some young male tourists I think from out of country, but they were trying to snap some pictures of Michelle & we kept telling them no but they wouldnt stop trying! It was pretty entertaining. I wish I could post pics or descriptions of the bridals but I dont want her fiance Rich to see or read about it! So i just put a picture they got done this year. Well that is it for now!

Update on the days of our lives!






So we are currently potty training Kenidi & Kiyah. I had 4 days off work & we just stayed home & they wore nothing but their panties. I put the potty in the front room, the first day we had quite a few accidents. I didnt think it would ever work. Then slowly but surely they got the hang of it! They both have only pooped in their pants once! And now on day 5 of potty training they are using the potty without me hounding them every few minutes! I am so proud of them! I am glad I waited until they were 2 & 1/2 to even attempt it!
My children have also found their new favorite show called "The Wonder Pets" I know every song by heart & they could watch it for hours if I let them! It is a pretty cute show, but I could go crazy from watching it so many times! When we went to Lake Powell all my in laws had to endure the show for 5 days! We were all singing it the whole time!
My cousin Dustan had his baby girl on August 31st! Her name is Paige-Lynn Casey Curtis, she is beautiful! I put a pic up of him & his little girl!
I posted some pics of the girls in their big girl panties & riding their bikes! They are side ways, from my Iphone & cant figure out how to flip them! I will have to get some of Lake powell up soon!

Its been a while







Well it has been a while since I posted anything. We have been super busy. I got a new job as a phlebotomist with the American Red Cross. I absolutely love it! Such a nice change! I get to go to a different place every day & do blood drives. Meet all kinds of people. For the first time since I had my girls, I don't want to be a stay at home mom! I want to keep my job :)
Also Our dog Bella did end up having puppies. We took her to the Vet several times for Xrays. We didnt want the pups to get stuck since that is a high chance with Boston terriers. But both Vets we took her to said she would be fine. There was 2 breech puppies. I asked if the whole body would come out & the head get stuck. Of course they said it would slide right out! WELL.. that is NOT what happened. Exactly what I said would happen is what happened! The whole body came out & head got stuck. Brandon had to rush her to the Animal ER in Roy & they werent able to save the first puppy, but the second one did live. We "named" her Nessie(haha Twilight). I am hoping my In Laws will let me give her to their daughter for her birthday, But not looking to positive right now.
We had a great & busy 4th of July. It was alot funner for the girls now that they are a year older. We went to the parade & the girls got candy, necklaces & stuffed animals. Then they got to play at their Great Grandma Hulls back yard. After their nap we went in the new pool & then went to Fire works! Lots of fun :)
Kiyah & Kenidi were recently Flower girls in my husbands brother Eris's wedding. They were so cute. They are such little ladies. they loved every second of wearing the dresses & shoes! it was good practice because they have to do it again for their Aunt Michelles wedding in Febuary.
Well I think that about sums it up! I posted a few pictures to go with what I wrote about!

There is No Doubt it was a great concert!









Yesterday me, my sisters, & friend Brandilyn went to the No Doubt & Paramore concert. It was so much fun! I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. We made a whole day of it. We left at 2 to go check out Michelles new house, out in West Jordan. Then realized we had like 4 hours to burn. So we went to Jordan Landing looked through a few stores & ate at Ruby Tuesdays. Which- by the way, had horrible service & cold food! Very disappointing!

Paramore played before No Doubt. They played like 11 or 12 songs. The lead singer Haley's hair was bright orange (Angie was quite jealous since this is the hair color she is always striving to acheive) and she sounded just as good live as she does on her CD which is always refreshing.

No doubt played like 17 songs, and Gwen Stafani also sounds just as good live as she does on her CDs. The whole band was awesome. There was a lot of dancing( Angie & Michelle mostly) & singing along. Gwen Stefani brought her son Kingston on stage to have everyone sing happy birthday! I have always loved No Doubt, but now I love them even more after last night. They put on a great show & we all had a blast

BUT the FUNNIEST part of the evening is the guy that was right behind Michelle. He was a older guy, wearing skin tight hip hugger pants with a belt, a short (belly showing) tank top with a vest over it & a little black train captains hat. Now- what was SO funny was that he was intensley singing & dancing the entire time right behind Michelles head. He was thrusting & shaking basically in her face & everytime I looked over at her she had this uncomfortable look on her face.

I put a picture up of this for you all to see! As well as some pictures & video of the bands! Since my cameras battery died about 20 minutes into No Doubt I didnt get footage of little Kingston but if you click on this link you can see Kingston getting sang to by UTAH!

Who knew eggs were so important?


When I got pregnant with my girls, I didn't take any fertility treatment. I got them natural & by surprise! But after I had them I got Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Which basically means, my ovaries produce cysts, instead of eggs. So I can have a lot of little cysts, one time I had between 40-60 cysts on each ovary. Both my sisters, & one of my close friends have the same issue. It is a lot more common then you would think & the cysts are treatable, with birth control. But that doesn't mix well with getting pregnant.
For the past few months we have been doing Clomid, a fertility drug. The first round I took half a pill for 5 days, and got 2 eggs! My older sister, and one of my friends take 4-5 pills a day for 5 days & get 1 egg, maybe 2. I did end up getting pregnant that first round, but it didn't stick. Which was a blessing in disguise since I had some gall bladder surgery a few weeks later :) We did our second round this month, and tomorrow I have a doctors appointment to check and see if my broken ovaries made any eggs. I am praying that I don't have more than 2 eggs, and at the same time praying I have at least one!
I just thought I would "blog" this down to get it off my chest. It is so much harder to get pregnant then I ever imagined! To much stress! Everyone wish me luck :)

Say cheese!









We finally got some family pictures done! My cousin Mindy did them, she always does such a great job. Especially since the girls will only cooperate for a few minutes before they become bored :) I thought I would share a few of the pictures on here hopefully everyone likes them! Thanks Mindy :)

Bonnie Jean Guymon



May 6th my cousin Bonnie Jean passed away. She was 36 years old & touched so many people in her life. Bonnie was so unique, before she turned one year old she was diagnosed with Rhett's syndrome & lost most of her motor function. Her family was told she wouldnt live past 20, but obviously she did! She was such a strong person & endured alot during her short life! And even though she couldn't express her self with words, she could talk with her eyes. Especially with my grandma Nancy. She saw Bonnie jean almost everyday for the last 25 years, Bonnie lit up when my grandma was in the room.
We know know Bonnie is in a better place & we will see her again one day :) We love & miss you Bonnie Jean!

3 Amiga's



Me & my sisters recently went & got some matching tattoos. It sounds dorky but they are awesome like us :) They are suppose to be the Chinese symbol that stands for "sisters". But since we left the original one we printed off at Angie's, Michelle printed off a new one at our parents house but it was different from the one we first saw. So who knows what it stands for? Any way it was Angie's first tattoo & she did way better than me & I already have a few. Michelle did good too. I guess I am just a wimp or I have way tougher skin so it hurts more? ;)

Puppies having puppies














So we have 3 Boston Terriers. Maggi is about 3 1/2 years old, Kozmo is about 3 & Bella is our puppy, almost one. They are all full breed & papered. Bella recently went into heat & we have tried very hard to keep them separate because she is to young to have puppies. She has been spending a lot of time at my parents & I have been keeping a close eye on them when we are all home. Well when we brought Bella home late last night she followed Kozmo everywhere he went. Within 5 minutes Brandon had to call them in the house 5 or 6 times. Then the next time they went out it was within a split second he got her! I am so hoping she isn't going to get prego. We are still going to sperate them. But everyone cross your fingers she isn't going to have puppies!!

Chiblings!








Our beautiful crazy little girls were born on March 3, 2007. I do not think we knew what it meant to have a baby, let alone twins! I always loved kids growing up & couldn't wait for my own. But the first year was a roller coaster of ups & downs. It was the best & worst year. But it was all worth it.

Kiyah is now a stubborn little 2 year old! She knows what she wants, & she knows how to get it! But she is so sweet too. She loves to use her imagination to play with her toys. Everything is hers :)She loves her "big" sister even though they fight over anything & everything! She has the cutest little language. She talks so good but has a few of her own words. Like when she says Kenidi , its more of a grunt! Even though she can say Kenidi if you tell her to, she just came up with her own name for her sister.

Kenidi is so different from Kiyah. She is our little talker, never stops! She can say full sentences so clearly. She is also very mischevious :) She will run & hide in the other room with something she knows she shouldnt play with. And if you tell her to do something, she won't do it just to make you chase her so she can giggle! But she is also so sweet. She shares everything with her sister, & knows how to take turns. She is always worried about Kiyah, wants to make sure she gets a turn or has a toy.

We are so lucky to have these little girls! And look forward to watching them grow up.

Blogging... ?





So I have never had a blog before. Not even sure I want one! But we will try it out :)

Me & Brandon will be married 3 years this coming September. We have two cute 2 year old twin girls, Kenidi & Kiyah. We couldn't live without them & sometimes it's hard to live with them! Who knew 2 year olds could fight like cats & dogs :)

We live in Clearfield in our house we bought about 3 years ago. It is in the neighborhood I grew up in & my parents are right around the corner. My kids will get to go to the same Elementary school I did.

Our plans for the future is to have ONE more baby, no twins :) & hopefully have me at home with the kids & maybe having a part time job. We will have to see which one comes first!

Well there you have it, my first official Blog. Hopefully they will get better as time goes on !
