AMY! Its Beautiful!

Ivy's new word for the week is beautiful! I am not sure where she got it from, but I about die every time she says it! We will be walking outside and it will go something like this. "OH AMY! The flowers... its beautiful!" It is the cutest! The other day we were walking in the mall when she says... OH AMY!... that dog...its beautiful! I was like Ivy where is the beautiful dog?? And of course she points over to the pink dog in victoria secret's window! She then pulled me over to it and made me put her up on the dog so she could ride it. BIG mistake! She started trying to rock back and forth, and it about fell over. So then I try and remove her from the dog, and she starts flipping out and making a huge scene over the beautiful victoria secret dog! I laughed so hard...people probably thought I was crazy for letting her ride it in the first place!

a day at the park

loves to swing!
love her stance!
laughing at a dog who was barking at her through a fence!

shoe fly don't bother me!

A few days ago, Ivy woke up rather early. I got up, gave her some juice, a bowl of fruit, and put her in front of "peter hand," and went back to bed. As I was lying in my bed I hear Ivy doing the funniest little girl screams. I layed there for a couple minutes listening, and then I hear " DOOOONNTT!!" and then " STOP"! So I walk in there and notice a fly hovering over her head. I watched her for a minute as the fly kept landing on her, flying away, landing on her, flying away. The last time the fly landed on her it flew off with no intentions in coming back, and Ivy said " Thank you!" Maybe you had to have been there but it was the funniest/cutest thing I have ever seen! Ivy is seriously so polite. She always says her please and thank yous. I love her!!

seriously mom! Get that thing out of my face!
I need a haircut!

It all starts tonight, and I CANNOT wait! Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with the Olympics! The schedules are pretty confusing, bc of the time difference but if you go on NBC.COM you can set up alerts to come to your phone right before your fav events come on! Genius! Also, if your like me and cannot wait until Sunday to watch the gymnastics, you can view their first practice in the Olympic floor here !

April and I at the Olympic trials 4 years ago

Also, April Steiner Bennett, whom I got to train with during the 2 years that we were both training at Paradise Valley, made the US polevault team! For any of you who might be interested in watching her, she will be vaulting on a the 18th around 9:00 p.m.ct

Missy Moo is TWO!

2 weeks ago was little missy's b-day. We invited all of the kiddos over and had a little princess party. She got princess blocks, a princess bike, and we went and built a princess bear. She is completely obsessed, and I love it! I really cannot believe how big she is getting. It makes me so sad:( She is getting so fun though! I love hearing new little sentences pop out of her mouth. I did a little birthday interview with missy. Here were her responses.

fav color: BROWN! ( what little girl who is obsessed with princesses says "brown"!haha)
fav animal: "Lion" ( I tell her about a scary lion that hides in the tree when she wont come inside... apparently she is not scared:)
fav food: Ummmmmmmm....BISHYS!! ( gold fish!)
fav friends ( the "KIDS" and Clarky...her litle buddies out here:)
fav movie: Ceeeerella ( Cinderella)
fav toy: monster ( her ugly doll that aunt ashie gave her)

We are so grateful for our little princess, and we wouldn't trade her for the world!
