Hello again!

Sorry for slacking so bad on posting. I am going to catch up I promise! I do have a tiny reason why I have been missing in action. Our computer went kaput, so we just ordered a new one but it won't be here until March 13th! Luckily Ryan brings home his work laptop at night so have some link to the outside world :o)
The girls are doing great. Emma is so fun, I can't believe she is almost 4 and a sunbeam! She got to give her first talk in Primary a few weeks ago, she did great. Mom on the other hand got the "great mom" award and totally forgot about the talk until 10 minutes before church. I am even in the Primary and was reminded about a hundred times, but yep... still forgot.
Sofie is growing up so fast. She is so much fun! I absolutely love having two kids and can't wait to add more into the mix :o) Sofie is such a happy baby, she is ALWAYS smiling, she smiles at anyone! She just figured out how to roll onto her belly tonight. She is pretty content to lay on the floor and kick her feet. In fact that is how we know she is awake because she kicks her mattress and all we hear is, "thump, thump, thump." The little stinker goes on strike from nursing about once a week though.
We are all doing well except we keep passing around the flu crud. I started it with the stomach crud, then Emma got the chest cold bad. She was having a hard time breathing, we were pretty worried for a while, but now her cough is just lingering around. Now Sofie has it but not as bad as Emma was and it seems to have made it back around to me again. No fun!
We have been pretty busy this month. My brother received his mission call the day after Christmas to Chile Antafogasta and he leaves March 11th! His farewell was Feb 15th so we went up to Idaho to visit. My sister and her little girl from Washington, my aunt and uncle and their boys from California, and my cousins from Colorado all came down for the occasion. It was wonderful to visit with everyone! I can't believe how fast time flies!
Well we hope all is well with everyone and we wish you all well! (I am hoping the new computer comes soon so I can post pictures)

Alive and well :o)

We are still alive I promise! One month of a teething baby plus one attention deprived 3 1/2 year old plus a Wii (Wii fit and Wii Mariokart) makes for 2 busy parents and 2 generally cranky children. (We are slowly getting back on schedule) We are alive and well, I have just lost the desire to blog. It is slowly coming back I promise. Once I get all the pictures from the holidays onto the computer I will do some major posting, but until then......check back soon! :o)
