UPDATE CITY!

I have been a little busy for the past few weeks and have not been great at blogging. You may think that since I haven't written much, we haven't been up to much, but we have been doing all kinds of things. We have had tons of company and we have been playing a lot! I decided to do an update tonight since everyone is asleep and I can actually think. I know that when Lainey wakes up and wants to be fed 5 minutes after I fall asleep I am going to be sorry that I stayed up, but right now it feels ok! We had Lainey blessed in church last week and so my family was here for that. We had so much fun together. I have written about things and posted pictures all the way back to July when Aaron's family was here, too. Sorry for them all coming at once, but I have to do it when I can. I haven't downloaded the pictures from Lainey's blessing yet, so those are coming, but the rest should be here! I will start with the girls first day of school! They started school on Wednesday and they love it! I was a little worried that Maggie would cry, b/c she has been having some separation issues lately, but I convinced her to stay and she had such a great time! She came running out when I picked her up and was yelling, "It was fun, school is fun!". She told me that she painted and sang songs and played ring around the rosies. She had a blast! Hallie loved it as usual. She was so happy to be in a class with all of her friends. She came running out and told me that she and her friends, "saved a butterfly that was dead". (Figure that one out, will ya?) Anyway, she had to take me over to the flower where they set a butterfly that was no longer flying. She later told me that he was not dead anymore! Anyway, they loved school and I am so glad. Have fun catching up on our lives!

O.K. I love the update. I love it. I seriously couldn't tell Hallie and Maggie apart. I never knew they looked so much alike. In the school pictures I thought that they were all Hallie. I htought "poor Maggie," she didn't even get her picture taken. JK. Love you, Jessie

Good job putting so many pictures up on the blog! I can't believe how big Lainey is getting! It's amazing how different she looks from the other girls. She's a cutie. We miss you guys!

I can't believe how much Hallie and Maggie look alike!! It is crazy if they would not have had different colored bows I would not have even noticed it was a different kid. It is so fun to see eveyone! Lainey is getting so big, we are all looking forward to Christmas so we can hold her and "give her lots of kisses" the kids can't wait. I am so glad you guys are doing so well, I wish we could come see you I know the kids would love it, who knows maybe someday!! Thanks for the update, we love you guys, kami
