Cutest Pictures EVER!

My Mom recently told me that I needed to take more pictures of Leah because I took tons of Shannon, so Leah is going to wonder where all of hers are. I think it might be the other way around. You see, when Shannon was born, my niece didn't have a studio yet, so her pictures aren't quite as good as these. I am SOOOOOOOOO lucky to be able to live by Nickell (not only because she is a great photographer--she's also a blast to hang-out with!). I love them all so much I can't decide which is my favorite!

Happy Spring?

I've had nothing in particular to blog about lately, so I thought I would just post a few pictures. This one was taken yesterday (it's actually much worse today). As you can see, Spring is a beautiful time in Utah. Just last week we were playing in the park and getting sunburned, and now we are stuck in the snow again. A few weeks ago we had Leah's blessing. Her grandma made this dress and it turned out just beautifully. She looked very pretty! My niece took some professional pictures that I will post when I get them (that's not a hint, Nickell, I know how busy you are).
The other night I went to check on Shannon to make sure she was asleep, and this is how I found her. She is wearing a hat that was actually for Leah when she was born, because it's a Christmas hat. Unfortunately, it was a little big for Leah, but it fits Shannon! She cracks me up!
I know there couldn't be a worse picture of me, but for some reason I still love this. We were all snuggling on the couch together and Matt thought it was too cute, so he took a picture with his cell phone. These girls really do love each other, and I sure love them!

A Soprano in the Family?

Okay, I know I have been posting a lot of videos lately, but I really love being able to take videos of my kids with sound! It's so much fun! Anyway, this one is a sample of the funny noises that Leah makes. She is just as chatty, if not more so, than Shannon. I wrote before that when she got her shots she surprised us by not only screaming, but by making the highest pitch screams I think I've ever heard. Now she reaches some of those notes when she is talking.
