So I think everyone just about knows by now. Word spreads like wildfire. But we are having twins! Yeah and Wow. I am not sure what to think sometimes.
I actually had a few dreams that I was having twins, a boy and a girl. I told Jay about it and he teased me from then on that we were going to have twins. I didn't think it was something to laugh about. I know how hard one is, two would definitely be a lot to handle. My sister also predicted that I was having twins. And somehow deep down I knew it too, I just didn't want to admit it.
So One evening I started having cramps and later started to have some bleeding. I called and scheduled an appt. the next morning. Jay had school and work so my mom went with me, and I am glad she did. We first got to the DR. office and answered tons of questions and then she checked the heart beat. Right away we heard one. But I was in a hurry to get an ultra sound to check and make sure things were ok. So we drove to the office with the ultra sound and waited. Right when we got in and she started looking for the "baby", my mom and I saw two. We both looked at each other just as the Tech said I was having twins. My mom went crazy she couldn't believe it. I told myself I knew it, but it was still hard to take in.
We told Jay over the phone and he didn't believe us, he thought it was a joke. Nope, no joke.
Sorry if this sounds depressed. We are not sad, in fact we are very excited. I am just a little overwhelmed. But I am very grateful to have two very healthy active babies( they were moving constantly throughout the ultra sound). I am also very grateful for a healthy body that is providing all that my babies need. The Doc couldn't find anything wrong and could not figure out why I had some bleeding. I attribute it to Heavenly Father healing my body through Jay's blessing that he gave me the night before. Thank you Jay. I am so grateful for the priesthood and for a husband who holds is worthily. What a blessing. We have a crazy ride ahead of us, but we are excited and know we can do it.

Jay's 1st Triathalon

So Jay did a Triathalon in Casa Grand with his dad and brother Bo a couple weekends ago. They did a 400M swim, 10mi bike ride and 3.something run. he did good for his first. I think for the next one in Dec. he wants to train a little more. I thought he did great though. It was a really cold day cause it had just rained the night before. The had to stand out in the wind for almost an hour waiting in line for the pool. they swam first and then had to get right on their bikes and from there run. I would have froze. they all did really good and it was fun to watch, at least what I could see. Good job Jay, Bo, Dad!
Before the race.



Standing in the freezing wind but having fun:)



I like this picture. Isn't he so cute! Woot! Woot!


Off to ride( they had to run in between each event)



Good Finish.

Happy Holloween

I know this is way late, I am behind. But I had to put put up a couple pictures. Eden was a fairy. So cute. We took her to my aunt Mary's house and took her around to trick or treat. In her neighborhood everyone sits out on their lawn and hands out candy. Eden loved it. We made the mistake of giving her one of the candies she got and she was hooked. She just wanted to go back out and trick or treat all night. I had to stash the candy away. We also went out earlier that weekend with Kendal and Kristina McCray to Kendals work and got tons of candy. Eden enjoyed that too and I am still trying to get rid of that candy.

Introducing the Door Hinge

Eden had a run-in with the door hinge. It was stiking up and she was running around being crazy and fell headon. She gashed her head right above her eye in two spots. It looked worse in person. One is bigger than the other. It bled quite a bit and she of course was scared cause she didn't know what was coming out of her head. It wasn't too deep so we didn't get stiches. We put some liquid bandaid/glue stuff on it with steri strips. She was a trooper while I held her down to do it. Now she points to it and says "ouch". Hopefully it doesn't leave a big scar. Sorry babe.

Silly Kid

This is Eden pouty face. Sometimes I almost laugh at it, gota watch that.

Feeding herself eggs-her favorite breakfast.

She always sticks her tongue out when she is really focused on something. She likes to take things apart and put them together, like her high chair buckles, which has to be put together immediatelyafter she's done eating.

Eden tried the zip line and loved it. We got a kick out of watching her. But we tried again this past weekend and she got scared. Guess she forgot about how fun it was.


Riding her horse. She tries to immitate the noises it makes. She can do a pretty good horse.

Lovin' aunt Breanna. She is one of Edens best friends. She tries to say her name and it sound like bannana.

So September is already flying by. We moved into Blake and Aprils house in August and we are really enjoying it. It has a lot more space than our previous rentals. Eden loves having a room to play with all her toys. She LOVES to go outside. anytime I say "Lets go" she gets so excited and hurries to find her shoes.Its been so hot to go outside, but we played in the sprinklers yesterday. Its starting to cool off enough in the mornings to go on walks and we both love that. Besides being outside or playing in water her favorite is reading books. She could sit and read books with me for hours.
One Sunday we just wanted to take a picture cause my hubby and little girls sooked so dang cute.

I found this dress at a thrift store! Oh I love thrift stores. I also got a nice rocking chair at one, I just cleaned off pen markings- and good as new:)

Me and my cute girl.

Eden and her little cousin( my cousin's little girl) Kyria. They have fun together.

Pool Fun and Zip Line

We had fun with all of Jays siblings and their kids in August. We played in the pool and made a zip line, way fun and a little exhilerating. Eden loved playing in the water and loved all her cousins. Jay had fun helping build the zip line and hang with his brothers.
