Life Lately

Ah life! Its been full of fun lately. Here is what has been happening. 
 Life lately has been going to a Bees game for daddy's work, and trying to get this picture. Madalyn wasn't having it, Abby was just pulling a face. Its also been Abby's balloon hair she insisted on getting. Life has also been finding Madalyn like this in the morning, and its been a picture where she looks far too grown up. Bye bye baby Madalyn. Hello Toddler. I guess that is expected at almost 2.
 Life lately has been both girls in the know what they say. Sisters that poop together, stay together. Its been silly Madalyn acrobats on the chair while watching Curious George. Its been adorable little girls being adorable and sharing, and its been a wonderful date night seeing Jurassic World, a Caitlin approved movie.
 Lately, life has been a sick little baby and feeling helpless as her mama. Its been knowing Sam was leaving to scout camp the next day and still having to worry about my little human. Its been a pajama movie night while daddy was away, and its been having a blast at bath time together. Nothing makes my heart happier than hearing these two squealing in delight together. Abby sure knows how to make Madalyn laugh. 
 Life lately has been the best daddy ever making play-doh dresses with Abby. Its been a fun night BBQing and playing at a park in Salt Lake. Its been Madalyn throwing a fit and Abby trying to help, and its been an adorable picture of Abby on Fathers Day when she climbed into our bed about 6:30am and fell back to sleep with daddy.
 Life lately has been one happy girl, and one grumpy girl. Its been a quick date night to the temple to do some initiatory with this handsome guy (even with that creeper stash). Its been loving this girls messy hair and profile, and its been Abbigale and Madalyn camped out on the floor as I showered. No privacy ever these days. 
And lastly, life has been just a cute picture of my girls laying around. Its been Madalyn at her happy place on the dino's. Its been Madalyn begging daddy for some peanut butter instead of dinner, and its been a silly 3 year old who ate a bunch of starbursts, and then proceeded to spin a bunch of circles resulting in thinking she was going to vomit. Honestly, it ruined her whole night. Its just a rite of passage to get that way. Everyone must experience it, and she did last night. Silly girl.

Update! Update! Read all about it!

Long time no blog once again. My blogging groove is just gone and I need it back. I need to supply the people with what they want! :) So, I decided to start out once again my hopefully normal blogging routine, I just thought I would update everyone on the happenings of our family. Because I KNOW you are all dying.

Sam is working hard. Really, he is gone far to much for my liking between two jobs and young men's, however I am also happy that he is willing to put his family first and provide for us and that he magnifies his calling. And when he is home, he doesn't hesitate to help out even though sometimes he may just want to sit. I really married a keeper.

I am trying to stay on top of the household work and help raise my cuties. I've decided to stop Beachbody for a while too. I'm just not a sales person. I wish I was. I wish the business worked for me and that I was making my money so Sam could be home more, but it just wasn't happening. I believed it would for so long, but there came a time where I just had to stop. Maybe when we get more financially secure I can start buying the Shakeology every month again because that stuff is amazing, but for now it was doing more damage on our finances than I was making money for. :( However, I feel really good about that decision and hope I can still inspire people to live a healthy active lifestyle!

Abby is just being cute little Abby. She turns 4 in less than a month and a day doesn't go by that she doesn't give me a list of presents she wants. She is smart as a whip and missing preschool. Every day she asks if its time to go back. She is getting a bit bored and I have to step up my game to make the days a little more fun around these parts! What are some fun things you do that doesn't involve going out in the heat of the day?

Madayn is doing better. For almost 4 weeks she was vomiting and had diarrhea on and off. I would think she was getting better and another bout would start. She would eat hardly anything. Well, all the prayers, fathers blessings, temple prayer roll, and fasting seems to have worked. She has stopped throwing up, even last night when I didn't give her any zofran! She won't stop eating (she is still the pickiest eater I know, but she is back to eating her normal foods that she wouldn't touch before) and she had her first real poo yesterday. I know. I'm talking about poo on the blog but I can't tell you how happy it made me!!  She is happy and the dark circles around her eyes are fading more every day!!  I didn't realize until yesterday how stressed and worried this made me until I was actually relaxed and playing more with the girls. Madalyn, don't ever do that to mommy again!! Other than that, she is a typical girl. She is following in her sisters footsteps and loves everything princess. She puts on dress ups, gets excited when she sees a princess or we watch a princess movie, and loves when I put her in a dress to wear that day. (in fact, a lot of time she fights me when I try to put shorts on her) She doesn't hesitate to spin around to show me her pretty dresses.

I just love my cute little family!!
