Dance Class

It was exciting to change from our swimsuits to leotards in the van and head straight from swimming lessons to dance class.  Miss Annie is fun with the girls and has all kinds of analogies -- like holding a note in your hands, and then showing it to your friend on one side, and then on the other side.

Swim Lessons

Cece has figured out the swim lesson routine now.  She wanders around the grass and watches what is going on.  She eats snacks, and she tries to make friends with other babies.

Bed Head

So funny to get Cece out of bed this morning and find her arm out of her pajamas.  And to see her awesome bed head!

Birthday Celebrations for {R}

{R}s birthday was yesterday, and we loved celebrating with her!  Ellie and Lynnie decorated balloons for her, and after dinner we played with them.  The funnest part of the night was letting Cece show off her dancing ability.  She loves putting on Lynnie's dance shoes and showing off her moves.  Inevitably, one of the too big shoes would fall off, and Cece would march right over to {R}, flop on her lap, and stick her foot out for {R} to put the shoe back on.  It was so sweet and my favorite moments of the night.

I went to investigate lots of little girl giggles, and found this exciting scene:

Two Cavities

The girls had their dentist check-ups earlier in the week, and Ellie had her first two cavities.  We got to back today and get them filled.  We picked the pediatric dentist we did because they use a laser and no shots or drills.  It definitely seemed less invasive and less painful.  Ellie has been a teeth-brushing vigilante ever since, brushing her teeth 3-8 times a day.  She does not want to get any more cavities.

The girls and I made cupcakes, and they decorated them all by themselves. Greg took some to Tammy as a thank you for playing with them.  Tammy was nice enough to send us a thank you text :)

Diaper & Hat

Why are naked babies so darn cute?  Especially when they put on hats.

Girls' Camp

The day I look forward to all year was finally here:  going to Girls' Camp to play the Candy Bar Game.  It is a much anticipated 20 minute activity :)

This year we spent the whole day, as Greg was participating in the opening ceremonies, we played the game with our ward, had dinner with the whole camp (put on by the stake leaders), watched skits, and then did the Courage Walk with our ward.  Many thanks to Tammy, Kylene, and Tobyn for taking such good care of our girls while we were gone!

Swim Lesson Selfie

It was the first day of swimming lessons for this year, so Cece and I were taking pictures to commemorate.  We needed a selfie, of course.  I was smiling normally, and Cece was pulling this cute face.  I had to match her and now have one of my favorite pictures of us!

Sun Spot

Cece loved this sun spot.  Every time she walked past it, she would plop down and relax for a minute.

ISSI Concert

I found this picture of Ellie playing in the concert on the ISSI facebook page.  I love it!

Cece has discovered her nose, and she is a leetle obsessed with it.

Intermountain Suzuki String Institute

Grandma told us we needed to sign up for the Intermountain Suzuki String Institute (aka Violin Camp) because it would be an awesome experience.  And it was!  Ellie's first class was a Music and Movement class, and she loved dancing to the songs.

50th Wedding Anniversary

Today is Grandma and Grandpa Spencer's 50th wedding anniversary.  What a wonderful example they are of love, commitment, and service.

Wavy Hair

Albert and Kanisha babysat the girls yesterday, and Kanisha braided their hair after their bath.  They were so excited to sleep in their braids, and were even more excited to see their cool, wavy hair this morning.

Dance Class

Cece and I are a little slower walking out to the van than the big girls.  I love that Cece wants to walk and explore on the way.

How We Roll...

...at the grocery store.  Ellie always wants to go to Smith's so she can push her own shopping cart.

Cece loves to clean her own ears with Q-tips.  Well, she loves to stick the Q-tips in her ears and clap her hands.  It's pretty cute!

Kendra's Birthday

Sure am glad that Kendra had a birthday and organized this fabulous group of ladies to go out to dinner!  I carpooled with Melissa and it was wonderful to catch up on the car ride.  And it was fun to see some ladies who are now in a different ward than I and hear all of the latest news.

Sleeping In

Sometimes Lu wakes up around 6 a.m. and is just so thirsty.  After a drink of milk, most of the time she is up for the day.  But occasionally, if I'm lucky, I can get her to go back to sleep.

Cece is usually pretty patient when we wait for her sisters to be done with a class.  Especially when Cece gets to color.  She spent most of the time taking the crayons out and then putting them back in the bag.

It really is the simple things that bring the most joy.  When we were shopping the other day, Lynnie asked if we could get a package of balloons.  And today, we spent some time just playing and playing with those fantastic things.
