I can't belive it is almost the middle of November already. I know it has been forever since I have posted and I feel aweful about it, but life has been so crazy. The girls and I were in Oregon for couple of weeks. We had such a fun time relaxing, playing, and well just being lazy. Pop (my dad) made RaeLynn a birthday cake, and she thought that was pretty cool, and of corse opening more birhtday presents! We were able to watch Uncle Ben and Uncle Caleb play in their soccer games. RaeLynn loved playing with Louie, like always. But Ainzlee wasn't too sure about him. I just love going home and spending time with my family, they mean so much to me. I am pretty sure RaeLynn loves it more, she is always asking to go to Grammy and Pop's house to see Louie! But I also love watching the girls interact with my mom, dad, and my brothers!

We were home for about a week, when we made another fast trip back to Oregon. Derek (my brother) and Stephanie (finace) were going to take care of some wedding plans, and asked if I would come to help! It wasn't too bad since I didn't have to drive and the girls were happy to spend time with Pop and Grammy again! Since being back, RaeLynn has started gymnastics. When Stuart gets home she likes to show him what she did in practice that day. She loves it so much, especially wearing her gymnastics suit, I can't get her to take it off! She sleeps in it under her pajamas, its just not worth the fight. I did get her to take it off the other day because she spilt her hot chocolate on it, so well it needed to be washed!

Ainzlee is just growing so fast. About 2 weeks ago she decided she was tried of the whole crawling thing, and well just started walking everywhere! We couldn't believe it! Now she is cruzing everywhere, there is no stopping her! She turned 10 months on saturday! I can't believe she will be one in just 2 months.

Ainzlee loves pulling the wet cloths out while I am trying to put them in!

Ainzlee also loves pulling all the dishes out of the dishwasher!

Stuart is so super busy with work, school and his church calling! I can't believe he only has 3 weeks of school! Not including the week of Thanksgiving break! I can't wait to have him home! I have been helping Derek and Stephanie make their wedding announcements, make skirts for the bridesmaids, making a scrapbook for their sign in book, and various other things! Not to mention that I am a mother of 2 very active girls! But I love keeping busy and having things to do! Sorry so long!

Enjoy the pictures!

Glamour Shots

I finally got the girls pictures taken! I know, I am so pathetic! These are the first pictures I have had taken since Ainzlee's blessing! And those didn't turn out that great because it was cold and well she was crying in all the pictures! These are just a few of my favorite poses! Aren't they so cute! Love you two!

Just some random pictures of the girls!

RaeLynn hurt her nose, and I am not too sure how she hurt it but she said she needed a bambam!! I can't believe she was able to breath with that thing on!

Congratulations Derek and Stephanie!
Yeah! They will be getting married the end of December in the Rexburg, Idaho Temple! I am so excited for them, and can't wait for Stephanie to be part of the family!

What's happening with the Hardy's?

Well Stuart started his final semester last week, and has been very busy considering it is only the second week of classes! He is doing a business program called IBC, so he will be gone pretty much all day long! The girls and I will have to find lots of fun things to do, so we can stay busy too! Gotta love it! He has been applying for jobs here and there, but nothing we are interested in! He wants to go to Grad school, so things are pretty much in the air right now! I think I am more excited than he is, about this being his final semester! I can't wait to get out of Rexburg! Good luck Stuart, we love you a lot!

Aren't they so cute? Ainzlee looks so tired, she didn't sleep much, and has an ear infeciton! Poor girl!

Ainzlee is 8 1/2 months now, and is into everything! Ainzlee has figured out how to open the cupboards in the kitchen, and loves it! She got her two bottom front teeth at the same time, so things have been pretty rough for her! She looks so much older with the teeth, I love it!

RaeLynn loves playing dress up, and well this is her latest dress! Thank you Grandma! It is still really big on her, but she loves to twirl! Stuart told her she was a cute little princess, well she corrected him by saying, "no, I am a big princess!" I can't believe she will be 3 in a couple weeks!

Here is my latest craft project, that I hung in the girls room! It says, " Girl, n. : a giggle wrapped in sunlight!" Thanks Ashlee for all your help, and letting me use your cricut! Also thanks mom for the wood!

FuN aT tHe StAtE fAiR

Moday we went to the Eastern Idaho State Fair!! It was pretty chilly when we got there, but not too bad! We had a good time seeing all the animals!! The cows, horse, bunnies, pigs, and goats!! The goats where the best part!! One of them kept trying to eat the stroller. I am not sure Ainzlee really knew what to think about the goat! It was great!! We did end up leaving early because of the weather. It began pooring a few hours after we arrived, but we were able to see the animals and have a great time!

Here are some more pictures of our adventures of the past month!! I am glad we are finally done traveling for a while!!

Stu and Arlee trying out the knee board!! We both did really good, and had a great time!

Riding bikes at a family reunion!
What a good looking family?
Stu took RaeLynn on their first daddy daughter date to the movies, and saw Kung fu Panda!

RaeLynn was eating popcorn in her bed, and of course sharing with her sister!

RaeLynn will be trying out for the 2024 Olympics!
