The last few weeks...

Ashlynn and her baby were watching Mickey while Cambria was at school.
The girls love it when Aaron pulls them around in the laundry basket, but when he isn't home Cambria gives Ashlynn and her baby rides.
We went to Big Juds for Brenna's 25th birthday. I made the cake, it was good!
Waiting for our cheeseburger...
Cambria was saying she wanted to cut it.

I love that Ashlynn plays like this now, she was feeding her baby.
I also love this cheesy smile and her cute little teeth.

She was eating black beans and making a huge mess.

This is Cambria's Christmas dress, she picked it out. She looks so grown up!

The Kid's Tree

Our old tree is too small for our family room upstairs because the ceiling by the window where we put our tree is like 12 feet tall, so we decided to let the girls put this one in the basement. We found some really cheap purple and pink ornaments, and already had the silver ones. Ashlynn claps her hands and gets so excited when she sees Christmas lights. It is going to be hard to get her to stop touching the tree and taking the ornaments off.
We got the girls new ornaments, you can see Cambria's at the top of the tree. It's Woody and Jesse of course. Ashlynn's is Mickey but I didn't take a picture of it.
It looks pretty good all lit up. I have been sick all weekend so we haven't put up our other tree, and since I have been in bed the house is a mess. Maybe we will clean and put up the tree tonight for Family Home Evening. Or maybe I will stay in bed...

lots of snow

It has been snowing a lot the past few days and it is very cold. It has also been windy so there are huge snow drifts around our house. The snow is up to the stairs in the front, and you can tell in this picture that the fence around our house looks short. Ashlynn loves watching it snow, and Cambria just begs all day to play in it.
I keep wondering why we are spending so much money on Christmas gifts for the girls when all they need to keep them entertained is a popcorn bucket!
Cambria REALLY wants to see the movie Tangled, so she made Rapunzel. She even made long hair, how cute is that?

Smarty Pants

So why is Shrek hanging out in my mixing bowls you ask? As soon as I can understand Ashlynn I will let ya know.

Cambria has learned a lot of things at school. She likes having "concerts" where we sit and listen to her sing for hours.

Short Hair

Cambria has been talking about wanting to cut her hair for a few weeks now. I didn't want to take her right away because I wanted to make sure that she really wanted it to be short and that she understood that it wouldn't grow back right away, but she kept asking, so I took her today. I was picturing it a little shorter but it took so long for them to get it even because she was moving around so much, that I didn't want to say for them to cut more. It looks really cute and she loves it! It is such a big change because her hair hasn't been short since she was a baby.

Ashlynn wanted her picture taken too. I just love this face she makes. I just realized that her hair always looks crazy in pictures, but it looks cute when we go out in public she just wont let her hair be cute at home.

Long post

Ashlynn smiles like this when we get the camera out and she says chee.
Cambria always wants to soak her feet because she says they smell like corn on the cob. I'm not sure why she says that. This was right before Ashlynn sat in the water.
Don't ya just love this face?
Cambria got a bottle ready for Ashlynn...
Last night when we said it was time for bed she ran into Cambria's room, jumped on the bed and pulled up the covers. Cambria got upset and started crying because she thought she would have to sleep in Ashlynn's crib. Haha.

It snowed here last week and Cambria was so excited. Both of the girls wanted to go outside so bad but it was freezing and really windy. Eventually we gave in and went outside.

The barbie jeep is fun in the snow but it gets stuck.
Good thing Aaron was there to give them a push.
Their cheeks were so pink when we came inside. We had hot chocolate, Cambria calls it warm chocolate, but when she was drinking it she said mmm... it warms me up just like the Holy Ghost. It was pretty funny.
Creepy red eyes. I always forget how much I like to bowl. This time my score was a 106. That's really good for me!
She would just drop the ball and it was so loud. There was a loud beep that went off when you stepped over the line and that happened every time she bowled. She would get mad at it and say she wasn't over the line.

On Friday Aaron Corey and I went to see Circa Survive in Salt Lake. We had been looking forward to this for months. We saw them in May and bought tickets right away when we found out they were coming again. I think I could go see them a thousand times and never get sick of it.
Before the concert the band was signing autographs at a record store so of course we went, and they did a few acoustic songs, which we didn't know they were going to do. It was great.
We got to meet the whole band and shake their hands, it just made the concert that much better to know that we had met them. He looks mad in the picture but right before this they were laughing and talking to us, then he would make this face for every picture. Aaron said they will always remember him because they told him he looked like one of their friends.
Best night ever!!!

Cambria typed her name for the post title. She is so smart. I went to Old Navy the other day and because their kids jackets and sweaters were half off I ended up spending more than I thought I would. But i got a bunch of stuff and most of it is for Christmas, and Cambria really needed more warm clothes. Anyway, we got her a jacket and skinny jeans (I love how they look on her) and we got Ashlynn a brown jacket just like this, and then they each got 2 long sleeve shirts, and a sweater, and then a fleece jacket for Ashlynn. Cambria's old coats from when she was Ashlynn's age are too short for Ashlynn's arms! The pants I got her are from the little girls section, yes she has graduated to the bigger girls clothes, and the biggest size would fit me, so we could wear matching pants!
Ashlynn wanted to be in the picture...
She wanted to go to school today. She gets upset and cries when Cambria leaves in the morning but then when we go to the window to watch them drive away she gets happy again.
It feels like I have a lot to post lately, and I still need to post the pictures of us playing in the snow the other day. So look forward to more pictures.
