It's FINALLY official!!

Yep that is right, we are MOVING!! Hip Hip Hooray!! It has been a long time coming!! But we are so excited it is finally here!! I bet you are wondering where to............. well take a pick!!

1. Colorado Springs, CO
2. Seattle, WA
3. Portland, OR

Ok well the Winner is ...........

Portland, Oregon!! 

Things have been moving rather fast!! We found out the beginning of last week, got all the paper work finalized this week, and will be packing the truck THIS weekend!! My dad and mom are coming with their truck and trailer Saturday, and the girls and I will head to Oregon with them. Stuart has some things to still take care of here, but will join us in Oregon the middle of next week! This has been such a HUGE blessing!! We are going to miss Rexburg so much! We have tons of memories here, watching the temple being built, our beautiful girls born here, and many, many more!! We are going to miss our friends, and the whole school atmosphere! But look forward to what awaits us in Portland!! I think I am most excited to go to the Portland Temple, Stuart and I haven't been since we got married there 5 years ago!! I know that Lord is watching out for us, and has a plan for everyone even though it may not be when or where, or even what you want at the time!! Things happen for a reason!! I have learned to be patient and just put my trust in the Lord, that things will work out. Look out Portland, the HARDY'S are coming to town!!

Warning:This may shock you!!

Ok, so Ainzlee loves chewying on Tampons! Yep that is right!! She always finds them!! And believe it or not, she can get the package off, then proceeds to chew on it! I know many of you probably think this is disgusting, but there is no harm in it if it makes her happy! I am sure one day when she is older she will be really mad at me for posting this but I just get a kick out of it!! And who knows maybe her children will do the same!

Happy Easter!

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday!! The girls were so excited when they saw all the fun goodies from the Easter Bunny!! RaeLynn said, "Happy Halloween!" It was pretty funny!! It was such a nice day to remember the resurrection of our Savior and all the sacrifices he has made for our family. 

The girls checking out their Easter loot! 

Opening their package from Pop and Grammy!! 

The egg hunt, Ainzlee was happy with just her 1 egg!

The girls with papa, and mama! (see the skirts I made those!! yep, it was so much fun! I will have to post some better pictures of them!)

She just keeps growing!!

Ainzlee is 15 months already and I just can't believe it!! She does something new everyday!! She loves climbing on anything and everything. Right now her favorite is the kitchen table. Yes, she has figured out how to push the chair out, climb on the chair and then proceed to the table. It scares me! Ainzlee also really enjoys looking at books or having you read them to her! She loves the cows and puppies. She even says a little moooo, while sticking her tongue out! But I think her favorite is when RaeLynn plays with her!! RaeLynn likes to have Ainzlee hold on to one end of the blanket while she holds the other end, and RaeLynn just runs around! Most of the time RaeLynn is just pulling her around, but Ainzlee just laughs and laughs! I love seeing them play and get along so well!! 
Ainzlee currently weighs in at 26 pounds and is 33 inches long!! She gained 4 pounds since she turned 1!! That'a girl!! 
She just got done shopping!! (notice her shoes, she loves wearing RaeLynn's shoes)

I just can't get enough of her cheesy grin!

Love the milk on her chin!!

I love this girl!!

Ever since my brother got married, RaeLynn has been very interested in the whole marriage thing. She is always saying the most random things and wants to know everything! Well this morning I was getting ready for the day and RaeLynn said, "when I get bigger and live with a boy I will have a baby in my tiny belly." 
My response, "RaeLynn, when you get bigger you have to get married in the temple to a boy first, then you can live with him. And you also have to be married to that boy before you have a baby in your tiny belly." 
RaeLynn's response, "What boy?" 
My response, "I don't know what boy, but when you are bigger and ready to get married you will know what boy. It will be a boy that will make you very happy, just like papa makes mama very happy!" 
RaeLynn's response, " Oh like Tucker boy!!(Tucker is her neighbor friend that she has been playing a lot with lately! They are just too cute!! And he is the one that they were pretending to go to the temple to get married.) 
My response, "Yes like Tucker boy!" 
Then the conversation pretty much ended with RaeLynn saying, "And he will be handsome." 
I just love my sweet RaeLynn. I can't believe how much she knows and that she is really listening to us when we talk about the temple, getting married, and other things about life. I am very grateful that Derek and Stephanie got married in the temple because that have made such an impact on RaeLynn's life and it is something that will she have forever. RaeLynn I just want to let you know that I know that the temple is such a special place and I am very thankful that at such a young age you already know that. I hope that you can always talk to me about what you are feeling and the things that are going on in your life. I love you so much!! Just remember you have a Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ that will always be there for you too. Again I love you and am so proud of you!!

Brushing Teeth!!

The Hardy girls love to brush their teeth!! It is never a dull moment in the bathroom!! Ainzlee loves doing whatever it is that RaeLynn is doing!! And brushing teeth is one of the best times of the day!! Stuart is always telling RaeLynn if she doesn't brush her teeth they will fall out!! I think it scares her enough to get her to brush her teeth!!  

Two beautiful girlies.....brush'em brush'em brush'em!!

Talent, brushing hair and teeth at the same time!!

Good job Ainzlee!!

Love the toothbrush in the mouth and brushing the hair!! We really have some talented girls!
