Where do they come up with these things??

It has kinda become a family tradition on Sunday evenings to watch videos of the girls when they were younger. And RaeLynn just loves it, well I think she just likes watching herself on the TV! But it has been a lot of fun watching them and seeing the girls reaction to the video of themselves!! This past sunday we were watching Christmas 2007, our first Christmas with just us as a family and well Derek was living with us too! I was WAY pregnant with Ainzlee!(she was born 14 days later!) RaeLynn was so fascinated with my BIG belly as she would call it!! She kept saying, "Baby Ainzlee in your tummy!" So as we are enjoying the video RaeLynn starts asking questions!(and you can all guess where this is leading, right? hahaha)

Rae- "Mama how did you get that baby in your tummy?"
Mama- I am thinking what am I suppose to say. "I just did."
Rae-"Did you cut a whole in your tummy and put a baby in there?"
Mama- "No, RaeLynn when two people like mama and papa love each other a lot they can get a baby from Heavenly Father."
Rae- "Ohh, does the baby come out your bum?"
Mama- "Something like that." Where does she come up with these things? I don't know what I should have said, or what I would say again if she were to ask me again! And I am pretty sure she will, so I have been thinking about what to say! I don't think she needs to know just yet where a baby comes from! The funny thing is I was the one answering Rae's questions, where was Stuart!!? He just sat there and said I did a good job!! Thanks honey!! No Stuart was a lot help and I am thankful he was there to back me up if I needed it! I just didn't want to forget this little moment we had with our wonderful daughter!

Another week in Hermiston!

Last week Stuart was out of town for some training, so the girls and I headed to Pop and Grammy's house!! We had such a blast swimming, playing and just being lazy!! It was really HOT there so we swam everyday for 3, 4, maybe 5 hours at a time! My mom's friend has a pool so we took advantage of it! The girls just loved it!! Thanks mom for taking sometime off from work to hang out!! We always have the best times at your house, and sorry for leaving you with a messy house! Hope to see you soon!

Doing some laundry!

Say Cheese!

Oregon Coast!

Last Saturday we headed to the Oregon Coast with my family!! Canon Beach welcomed us well! We had such a great time! The girls loved the sand, water, all the fun shells we found, salt water taffy and everything that comes with being at the beach! It was a pretty windy day and the water was COLD, but that didn't stop us from having the time of our lives! Haystack Rock has all sorts of sea anemia you can touch and look at! We can't wait to go back soon!! Thanks Mom and Dad for such a great day, I mean weekend!!!

Saturday Market

Saturday we ventured to the Portland Saturday Market in downtown Portland! We had such a good time looking at all the different vendors. The girls even enjoyed it so much we didn't hear a word from the whole time we were walking around! Other then the food, the entertainment was the best past of the whole day!

We were really there! 

Sweet drummers!
