Introducing Elvis and Lucy Legs

Well the other night Jon and I went to a murder mystery party at some of our good friends house here in Boise. If you know Jon and I you know that we are not big into dressing up for Halloween, but we decided what the heck. We were assigned who we were supposed to be and so Barbara made us the entertainers of the hotel. Lucy legs and Elvis (not us at all) So Jon's mom made this amazing Elvis costume for Jon since how they don't make 6"7' costumes. She did it all in one day too, she truely is the best seamstress that I have ever met. It was so amazing!!! (thanks again Annette, it turned out great). We had forgotten to take pictures so this is after the party while Libby is screaming for me to feed her and Shelby is doing her sympathy cries with equal force. I will be getting a better pic of Jon so that I can send it to his Mom, but I had to post something because everyone keeps asking for a pic.

O'ya we are super hot!

Me not knowing how to stand....ummmm duhh

Look at his cape! and you can't see it in this pic but it has gold bell bottoms and a gold belt too. Once again my Mom-in-law is AMAZING!

This was on my friend Erica's blog and I thought it was super fun so I totally stole it from her. If you want to do it I would love to hear what you remember.

1. As you comment on my blog, leave one (or 2 or 3 or 10) memories that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.
2. Next, repost these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty fun to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave a memory about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you do not have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. Have fun!!

Our Libby

This is Libby after a long day of toting around with mom. I always think it is so cute to see our little girls with their daddy. He doesn't stand a chance with all of us girls. We have him wrapped around our little fingers and we sure love him!

Shelby's 2nd Birthday

Well for Shelby's birthday we had a blast! Grandma and Grandpa Hammons came to town to celebrate with us. Shelby got a new bike(G&G Hammons), her hat and gloves, a puzzle(Neighbors), a few books, a awesome singing toy (G&G Scott), and a marble maze game. I am really bad at remember to take pictures during the moments so this is what I got. That night we went to PoJo's which is like a chucky cheese. She had a blast as you can see in the pictures.
Check out my new Hat!Grandpa Hammons helping (pushing) her along.She has the same problem as her mother; she can't keep her feet on the pedels. My dad had to duck tape my feet to the pedels before I finally got it.Just chillin on her new ride!Still loving her hat and telling us all about it.Daddy helping her ride the horse
Dumbo was kinda boring as you can tell on her face
Merry go round and around and around. This got very old for the adult with her, but shelby thought it was awesome.

I was there too.
She loved this motorcycle.
Our very first picture of all 4 of us. We didn't have a traditional begining with Libby so it has been hard to all be somewhere without someone in the hospital or feeling yucky. But here we are and we are happy!
Grandpa helping Shelby "Fly High"
Fred Flinstones ride.

Ice cream and candles, HUMMM I didn't think this through did I? O'well she loves Ice cream the most.Grandma was there too, she was just always so busy keeping the party running that she was behind each and every scene.

Well we had such a great day and it was extra special that my parents would drive all the way up here just to be there for our little angel. We are so blessed in so many ways. I get a little teary eyed anytime that I think about Shelby getting older, she is growing up so fast. It seems like this summer she went from a little baby to a toddler in a hurry. She is talking up a storm and is extremely helpful around the house and in the kitchen. I sure love being a mom and I am so lucky to have another little miracle in my life to get to raise. Happy Birthday Shelby, we sure love you!

Monkey Jammers

Shelby loves monkeys so we have now forced Libby to like them too. Here are the girls ready for bed in their monkey P.J.'s and a proud daddy too. I just thought this picture was cute because Shelby insists on giving Libby a hug and a kiss before they go to bed.

Daddy Daughter Day

"I hiking Daddy"
She liked to throw the big ones
action shot
Silly face
As we all know Jon LOVES to go hunting so a couple of weeks ago he decided to take Shelby on a daddy daughter date and go scouting for deer. He was going hunting soon and needed to spot out the big bucks. Shelby had a blast throwing the rocks and fetching them out of the water if she didn't throw it far enough. She mostly just loves being with her Daddy!

P.S. Needless to say, Jon didn't get much scouting done that day.

Our life at home

I saw on one of my friends blogs a post about the everyday going on in their life and I thought that would be a great way to capture my little girls precious moments in life. Shelby is going to be 2 years old on Sunday and it makes me want to just cry, she is getting so big! I am so lucky to get to stay home with my little angels and we have so much fun everyday and I just want to remember everything about it and never forget how much I love them. I am so grateful to still be alive and to be doing what I have always dreamed of doing; raising my 2 little miracles! Here are some pics of what we normally do. Libby sleeps so peacefully and Shelby is my entertainment every second that she is awake. I love you girls!

This is Libby sleeping on the chair in her Boppy, this is the one place that she is truly happy. Touchdown Libby!
Shelby and her chalk, it is always a fun laundry day!
This is Shelby throwing a 2 year old temper tantrum, I always just laugh so it never lasts to long. As you can see she can barely keep a straight face too.
This is Libby in her craddle with the blanket that Aunt Molly made especially for her. She loves it and always seems to sleep the best with this blanket.
Libby actually awake and it is not even past 9pm!! She loves her playgym.
Am I ready for this? Shelby is really excited about going to the "big girl" potty. We got her a pink princess potty that sings when she pees. She always is sitting on it saying "I poop, I pooped momma", but I have yet to see any poop in the potty.
She picked out these elmo panties and love to match her socks with them. I just thought she looked to stikin cute.

Merry Christmas to ME!

So I finally got my dream entertainment center and a 52' tv. I am so excited! Jon and I have had hand-me-down furniture our whole marriage. Which has been so nice and we still love it too, but it has been so fun to find furniture that I REALLY love. In our new house we have 20 foot ceilings in the living room so we needed a pretty large piece; well I found it. Molly wanted to see pictures so I thought I would share it with everyone. Needless to say Shelby is loving watching her dragon tails in style! Did I mention that I really love this piece of furniture?!!
