It's been a couple weeks...

...and I don't have a whole lot of anything going on. No new news to share. At least nothing that I feel is important or significant enough. So let's see, what to say? I guess I am on here just to post a couple new pictures. The girls are doing well. They are both growing and learning so much. Riley is getting smarter by the day and can be quite a challange at times. Izzy is a challenge but in a very different way. She is slowly growing out of her fussiness it seems. But maybe I am just so used to it. It's not like she is impossible or anything but she has her moments. I think often times when she is fussing it is just because she has a burp that she needs to get out. Sometimes it takes her forever to burp. Other times that she fusses I believe it is just because she knows exactly what she wants or how she wants to be held. Basically, if she doesn't like something, you will know! We had a pretty good weekend. We went to see Horton Hears a Who on Saturday night. Yes, we took both kids. They did fairly well. I thought it would be a train wreck; and while they weren't prefect I cannot say it was bad. The movie was kind of silly and cute but there was a strange part or two. There was one part where it flips into that Japanese-type anime and it was quite weird. Sunday we spent the entire day in Shelley because Trav's cousin CJ gave his farewell talk. He is leaving in April to serve a mission in Russia. So we spent the day eating good food and hanging out with family. I am including a few new pictures of the girls below. I haven't taken many lately. But I do have a good story to go along with the couple of Riley. When Riley was about 10 or 11 months old she found a piece of chocolate candy and put it in her mouth...my eyes were only off of her for a few minutes or so but with those short minutes and one piece of candy she made a royal mess. See picture #1 below. And that is just her, I am not including pictures of the carpet or aything else that got covered in chocolate. Now fast forward to yesterday. Riley is just a week shy of 19 months and we have a similar incident. I made no-bake cookies yesterday morning. They were sitting on wax paper on the kitchen counter. Travis was showering, I was in the other bathroom getting ready to head to Shelley for church...and Riley once again was unsupervised. And while it was only a matter of minutes...she is tall enough to reach things on the kitchen counter. She had been upstairs in her room but in the time we took our eyes off her she went downstairs. AND helped herself to the cookies. And so the pictures that follow the first picture are of Riley the chocolate mess. At first she seemed embarassed for me to snap a photo, the next one she actually smiled for, and by the third she was LAUGHING at me because she could see I wasn't very happy with her. What a little devil! After things like this are over and cleaned up it is easy to see the humor. But when I have the mess before me to clean I am not so happy. Also, I caught Riley at the top of the steps heading back to her beadroom, when I was coming out of my room. Which leads us to believe that mid-cookie snatching she realized, "Uh-oh. I am going to be in trouble so I am going to go back up to my room and act like nothing has happened...and Mom will never know I was eating her fresh cookies." She actually thinks she can outsmart me. I love it. She is pretty smart. And I know she will be trying to get away with stuff time and again in the years to come...oh joy. And enjoy the photos. :)
Picture #1

"Oh man, not that darn camera again..."Ok, I guess I could smile for this. Totally loving the fact that she got away with this. Or not necessarily got away with it but she DID get to eat cookies! And yes, she really was laughing at me.

At least she only had ONE whole cookie and just touched a couple others.Sweet little Isabelle
