Happy 5th Birthday!

Jacob and Jillian are 5!! Wow, I can't believe it, I remember when they were just babies thinking they would NEVER grow up:) Being a mom of twin infants is HARD! I think back and have a hard time remembering much of anything that first year...good thing I kept a journal and took pictures, to help jog my memory! Now they sleep through the night, eat by themselves, are potty trained, go to preschool, ride a two wheeler with out training wheels, can bathe/shower themselves, play outside without constant supervision (I even let them go friends houses by themselves:) Jillian takes ballet and Jacob plays soccer, and the list goes on... As I look over the list I feel a sense of accomplishment! I remember when they were babies wondering what this day would feel like, what their personalities would be, how it would feel to have them so independent. Let me tell you it feels GREAT! Do I miss the days of cuddly babies...yes! Do I miss getting 2-3 hours of sleep total a night..NO! Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change the past five years for anything, everything happened the way it was suppose to...Life is good!

Our Summer

Haha, I knew this would happen...start a blog then not blog! Maybe now that summer is ending I will have time?
Usually by September I am ready for my favorite time of year...FALL! This year has been such a nice warm, mild summer full of camping, fun on the lake, mulitiple trips to Seven Peaks, and two, yes two kidless trips to Lake Powell. I am not sure I am ready for it to end. Here are some pictures of our summer! St George with the Simon Clan
