Breezy and Gabel Come

 Evan's parents came and stayed with us for a week, but there are so many cute pictures that Aubrey took that I cannot decide what to share.  I am skipping ahead.  Breezy and Gabel had a funeral in Utah so we got to spend some time with them.  Everyone was so excited to see them.  It was kind of crazy with everyone trying to get their attention-me, Moriah, Fiona, and Kira.  Evan and Audrey were pretty chill about it all:-) 

This is the first of my babies' births that Breezy has not been nearby.  We missed her and are glad that she finally got to meet Audrey.  Audrey really liked Breezy.

So sad that they could not stay longer! (Note to self-take pictures in the shade when it is so bright out.)

Golf and Microphones

Fiona decided to make a microphone for Kira and herself on Sunday since I did not want them to use my tripod as their microphone.  Then she decided golfing was the way to go.  She made golf balls out of tissue paper and tape and added a club to a stick.  Good thing Fiona has a Daddy with great materials like sticks.  Fiona was so cute making a club and balls for Kira, too.  They are really cute when they play well together.


Watch out Uncle Chris, this girl knows how to make golf clubs and balls and knows how to swing.

2 Week Photo Shoot

A picture I took while waiting for Kelley.

My friend Kelley was disappointed in our first photo shoot so she offered to come again.  I think she wanted to see Audrey again:-)  Her photography is beautiful.  I cranked up the heat this time so Audrey would sleep better. 


You can see where she had to get poked for her 2 week check-up.  She has gained plenty of weight at 6 pounds 10 ounces.


To GG's House We Go

The girls love going to GG's house.  She is wonderful and makes everyone feel special (and she has Oreos and licorice).

Audrey at 2 weeks.

Flying Fiona's Kite

Fiona bought a parrot kite at Costco with the last of her birthday money.  She really wanted a butterfly kite, but our Costco was all out.  Brandon and Melinda bought a butterfly kite at their Costco and traded her.  She has been begging to go kite flying all week.  Between general conference on Saturday, we finally flew our kites and then watched the afternoon conference together (and then the girls did their nails with aunt Melinda).  The girls had a lot of fun, but were a little cold.  It was sprinkling when we first got to the park, but stopped so we could fly our kites.  Audrey stayed nice and warm in the moby wrap under my jacket, but did not get to be in many of the pictures.


Audrey is still growing and seems to be a more relaxed baby than our other three were, but our memories are not perfect so who knows.  We are hoping she has more of Evan's temperament:-)

The girls still cannot get enough of her.

On Our Own (Kind of)

Our first week on our own went well. Aunt Kristi took the Kira and Fiona a couple days and Sarah and Arycca helped me with getting the girls to school so we were not really on our own.

Kira sharing her play doe she made at Kristi's.

Kira got all cozy in Audrey's car seat and fell asleep.
