Home, home on the range!

This is the scene in my house when I got home from the gym today. How fantastic is my girls Daddy!?! Aren't they (and I) so lucky!!!

All the new and unusual goings on in our life

I am trying harder to update more often. The only problem is that our life doesn't really have much going on. We are crazy busy, yet have nothing to show for it.
Here is a simple update on Kira. She is turning into the sweetest little lady. So caring. We just started 'teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons.' She is doing fantastic and loves it! Thanks to my cousin Nikki for letting me know about this great program!
Next week we are heading to Atlanta to the temple open house. She can't wait to be inside the temple. I love how sacred she treats it. It's a joy to behold.
Each night before and after we read the scriptures we MUST sing the books of the Book of Mormon song. She loves it and had the song memorized on our second night of singing it :)
Aurora is turning into a little girl much faster than I care to admit. She is trying to talk more which is so fun. I love to listen to baby voices. Is there anything more precious? She won't let me pick her clothes anymore. She has to wear what she wants to wear (out of two choices Mommy picks) letting her pick her clothes has stopped a few of her tantrums, but boy can she throw a tantrum! She is just so darn stubborn!
The biggest Rora news I have is that she is off the binki! When we got Kira off we had her throw them all in the garbage and we took the sack to the compactor so she could see that they were gone. Rora isn't quite to that level like Kira was (even though Kira was a month younger) so I just stopped giving it to her. She has been completely off for 4 days! Way to go Rora!
Josh and I are still just plugging along. I truly have a fantastic life!

So I know its a bit racy, but I LOVE this photo Josh took! Rora loves to take baths with me. As soon as she gets in she snuggles up. Josh caught it perfectly!

April Fools Day

Yesterday was April Fool's. Unusally I don't do much of the tricking, yet with Kira being at the prime age to 'understand' it all, we did a few fun pranks.
We started off the morning with eggs for breakfast. Kira loves eggs and I HATE to make them, so when I told her she could have an egg, she was so excited! When I gave her her egg(vanilla yogurt with a peach in the middle. Bran on top for pepper) she looked at me with the funniest expression and told me that she didn't want her egg scrambled. I laughed and told her it wasn't scrambled. She said oh, and then looked at it some more. She then told me I was tricking her. I laughed and explained what April Fool's day is. She then thought it was a riot!

I taught preschool at my house yesterday so I was able to trick the kids and then in turn help them trick their parents. I gave them koolaid (with salt) and got the funniest expressions. They then helped me make cookies(salt for sugar) for their parents. They were so excited to tell them April Fool's and throughout the day kept asking me to remind them what to say. I sure hope they were able to pull it off when they got home!

Kira and I then took the rest of the cookies to Daddy's work for him to pass out. The perfect thing is that I send cookies all the time so no one thought anything of it...until they tasted them. ;)

It was a great day and so much fun! Kira and Daddy tried to trick me when I got back from the gym, but seriously....saran wrap on the toilet, in the middle of the day!?! Better luck next year!

I love seeing Kira have a great time and it was such a fun day!
