New things.

New things are happening around here.
Like Lydia wearing a pony tail!
Oh how the simple things like Lydia's hair make me so happy.

And I have a new blog/website!

Please follow me over here:

Having two different blogs I needed to keep updated and wanted 
to keep updated was proving a bit too much time.
I am moving into one blog to simplify my life
so I won't be such a crazy wife and mother when life gets busy.

I hope you all will follow me over there!
I am going to show on this blog when the new one is update
for a couple of months so everyone has time to see I have moved.

Striped wall.

We decided to paint some stripes on our walls 
in our living room last weekend.

I really enjoy them.
Thanks again Madre for all your help.
Now on to the next project!

Sunday's photo. Week 13.

Last Sunday when Lydia woke up from her nap
she just wanted to snuggle for a bit.

I do miss cuddling with my baby girl
so I was pretty happy just sitting there soaking it in.

She is growing up much too fast.

And yes, 
that is Charlotte's butt you can see in the bottom corner of the pictures.

Happy 26th Gregory.

Happy 26th Birthday to my husband.
So glad to be celebrating another year with you.
I love you!
The man requested a home cooked meal
and dessert since we have been eating out WAY too much this past week.
Greg isn't a fan of cake but loves ice cream
so I have made him an ice cream cake a few times for special occasions
for him and it is always a hit.
It's not pretty to look at in the picture 
but it sure is yummy!

Sunday's photo. Week 12.

Lydia was back to her normal self this Sunday.
And she decided to give up her binki
all of a sudden the night before.
Went to sleep acting like it was no big deal and 
just held on to her minnie mouse to fall asleep.

Oh, and she didn't spill once on this white dress.
This chick deserves a new toy or something
because she is amazing.

 And I thought I would add a few outtakes 
so you can see how crazy funny this girl can get.

Our little family seriously loves a good crepe.
Whenever I buy a package of strawberries we just can't help
but turn a meal into crepes with fresh whipping creme.

And they are TOTALLY healthy because of the 
strawberries right?!

Come back warm weather.

We live down the street from a church house that has a baseball field
right by it.
Greg loves to take Charlotte there and hit some golf balls 
while she does her business.
He cleans up after her of course!
Unlike some dogs owners around here.
Anywho, it has a real pretty view of Utah Lake and the mountains.
We ventured out to it all together last weekend when
we finally had some warm sunny weather.
And as usual,
Utah spring weather just had to prove how mean she can be by being
cold again today.
Hopefully warm weather will come back again soon.
Or else I might die!

March 19, 2011

I went to sleep 25 and woke up 26 years old.

I had a birthday this last week.
I was born in the wee early hours of the morning
so I always wake up on my birthday my new older age.

Greg and I celebrated by going to Benihana's in downtown SLC
and did a little shopping without Lydia 
(Thanks to my madre!).

Did I mention we ate at Benihana's for practically free?
You receive a free meal the month of your birth when you sign up
with them through email.
Because Gregory and I share a birthday month
we got to both use our birthday meals and treat ourselves to a yummy free dinner.
And when finding this out
we signed up for a ton of restaurants that do the same thing.
This works out perfectly for cheap skates like us!

Maybe if I find time and energy this weekend
I might do my oldie but goodie birthday list!

Sunday's photo. Week 11.

This particular Sunday,
I had a poor sick baby to take care.
She came down hard with a cold and nasty ear infection on Saturday night
and tossed and turned all night long.
By the time we all woke up,
it was time for church but both Greg and Lydia were miserable with colds
and had been up half of the night.
So we let Lydia watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to her little heart's content
and use her binky outside of her crib.

Perk #85.

Perk #85 of living in your own space,
being able to walk around in your undies without having to live
in fear someone is going to see you
(or seeing someone else in theirs for that matter).
Lydia and I have both been taking full advantage.
But she is ten times cuter in her undies than I!

Sunday's photo. Week 10.

Normally I take pictures on Sunday after church
but this last week I actually got them in before.
And we even have nine o'clock church!
Go us!

This time Greg did the snapping for me.

A leotard and leg warmers.

Lydia and I signed up for a mommy and me tumbling class.
It was our first time last week.

She showed no fear on the balance beam
and showed front rolls on the mat who was boss.
She even tried a few back bends.

What a gal that Lydia is!

I might be lying if I didn't say
that just getting her in this leotard for tumbling might
be my favorite part of my day.

Sunday's photo. February, week 9.

Lydia eating yummy crepes for lunch after 
church last Sunday.
Pretty sure she lickcd her plate clean of the whipped creme.
I don't blame her.

Cousins in jammies.

The three youngest Simmons' cousins all looked
so cute hanging out in their jammies in Midway one morning
I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures.
 Lyds is snapping,
 and clapping in this one.
She finds doing those activities quite entertaining.
 Don't you love Aidan's curly locks?

Bowling in Heber.

While staying in Midway last weekend
we went to Heber City to get a good round of bowling in.
I was terrible at it this time for some reason.
Lydia was great at pushing the bowling ball off the 
kiddie stand and watching her ball travel 
slowly into the gutter.

Great memories made at the Holiday Lanes in Heber City!

Head on over to the photo blog,
for a cute wedding that I happened to photograph in February.
