Our new place!

As most of you facebook friends know we just moved to Bountiful last weekend. Phil has been commuting to Kaysville and had to open his schedule to do a split shift (morning and night) so we had to move closer. Bountiful was halfway. I was a little scared that I would be home sick for Taylorsville but I absolutely LOVE Bountiful. I love the small town feel with the big town conveniences. I must brag about the walmart and Target just down the street in Centerville. It has to be THE NICEST Walmart I have ever seen in my entire life! Anyway we upgraded just a tad from our 800 Sq ft apartment in mini mexico to our 2000 Sq ft townhouse in a pretty nice area. We are just renting for now but we are still aving fun making this place home. Here are some pics! Please keep in mind we haven't even been here a week and are still in the process of unpacking and settling in! :)

Abby is 5!!!!

Today is Abbys 5th birthday. Wow is about all I have to say! She is such a joy and I am thankful everyday for her sweet spirit in my life. Her birthday started with Waffles this morning which Joslynn helped me make, then we went to go ice skating but it was SO packed we decided to go swimming instead. Me being the wonderful mother that I am left my camera in the car for the swimming part. Then it was off to Target for Abby to spend some of her birthday money. After that we had dinner at Applebee's. Abby was very sad that they didn't sing to her like they did when we went for Joslynns birthday. I was pretty mad too. She was wearing a birthday princess crown and a birthday girl badge and we even talked to the hostess about it. Anyway we left there having to do some major cheering up so we took her to Mcdonalds for ice cream. By this point Joslynn was pooped (we skipped nap today) and she fell asleep on the bench waiting for ice cream. We ended the night on a not so great note when I spent the rest of the night holding Abby's hair while she threw up. :( What a crappy way to end your birthday! Poor thing is pretty sick. I just hope she is able to get some sleep because her Grandma Despain is taking her to Build A Bear tomorrow.
Here are the pictures of the events of the day (except the puking part) Last night we had my family over to celebrate Abby's and my sisters little boy Alex's birthday. They were born on the same day but he turned 2. He had a pinata and they had a blast breaking it. (or trying to) Alex was so sad after though. He walked around with the mangled truck (pinata) saying it was broken. What a sweety.

The girls vacation

The girls are on vacation with their dad right now. They went to Disneyland and then on Thurdsay they will be going to Arizona where his family is from. It is hard knowing that they are seeing the ocean for the first time and going to disneyland for the first time and I am not there to see it. But I hope they are having a blast and will tell me all about it when they get home. I am so greatful that Rand sent me these pictures on my phone! It came at a moment when I was feeling really down and missing them like crazy and it was so good to get the texts with the pictures. It cheered me up. They look like they are having so much fun! Abby loved collecting seashells at the beach and Jos didn't like getting her feet dirty. lol. I miss them so much but am glad they get to go have fun with their dad!
