Twins bday and family

Yay for family! They came! It was so weird having people stay at my house. People don't stay at my house. Ever. And it was also weird because we just kind of live our own separate life up here, so having people here wasn't the norm. It was so fun though and we did a lot actually. I took so many pictures. Seriously a lot. Like 400 a lot. So i'll have to narrow it down for you. There is a lot more on facebook, but these are the best of the bunch.
We borrowed some dirt bikes from a friend and took them out to show what fort mac is really about. It was my first time too. I was awesome. Actually I sucked, I'm not sure if I was meant to dirt bike, i'll just stick to quading.





Me and Dust

We also went out for dinner when they got here, since it was Steph's bday the next day and I didn't feel like cooking. So we just went to BP's since it's right behind our house.

Our little fam jam at the end of the table.


Mom, Steph and I

We had Jayci and Presley's birthday Party on the Saturday and Jill was nice enough to let us have it at her house.

My pretty Birthday girls!

Cutest little twins I ever did see.

All 3 of my beauties.

My gorgeous sister and I


Somethin kinda sexy right there.

All their presents. They fought over the Dora chairs, even though they are the EXACT same.


Dora Pinata! This thing was hard to break! Pure metal, I swear.
Presley takin a whack at it

Jayci putting her damage in.

Fighting over turns. Typical.

Destroying Dora. I think the kids were traumatized.

Jayci and Presley kept saying, "uh oh, Dora!"

so sad.

But so hilarious.

Bday cake!

Jayci blowing out her candles.
Presley wasn't too sure about it.

So Jayci helped her. and I don't think Presley liked that. (I mean just look at her face, pure sadness!)
So we did it again for Presley, so worth it. Cutest picture ever.

Mom wanted a family picture of us.
This was the best family shot, Presley did NOT want a picture.

The cause of all this.
I blame him.

Happy Birthday to my two little sweethearts!!
I love them to death.

The party was great. I was exhausted just after opening presents! Trying to get both of them to open together, and not run away, or look at the camera or to not fight over who gets what. Man. But my girls are funny like that. If they open something or remember wearing or having something first, it's theirs. And it is ALWAYS theirs. They have been like this for a couple months now. It started with the sippy cups at bed. Kyla always liked to give Presley the pink one and Jayci the green. And one night we did the opposite and they freaked. Same goes for their bears which are the exact same but one has a blue bow and one pink. And their clothes, if they remember wearing a shirt, then they get that one EVERY TIME. So they did the same with their gifts. My mom got outfits for them, one pink, one green. Then the next gifts were the matching shoes but we accidentally gave them the wrong color and tried to switch. That did not go over well. It's pretty crazy. They ALWAYS remember too. So if I forget, just ask them!

They are talking like crazy, I can't even make a list of words because they say everything and will copy anything you say. They know so much. They are very smart and remember everything. Presley loves to sing and Jayci loves to talk. They call each other "see-see" (Presley), and jeecee (jayci) but they sound so alike a lot of the time so they both call each other the same thing and it's kinda cute. Kyla is "Dyla" and they call their cousin Tobin, "Toby" I love it. They are pretty clear at talking too, they are putting two words together and sometimes three word sentences. I am LOVING this. I couldn't wait for this to happen. COMMUNICATION!! yes!

They still nap once a day right after lunch for about an hour and a half, and they talk and play in their beds until they pass out. They go to bed at 7:30, wake up at 6:30-7ish. They love snacks, and hate good meals I make. It sucks and I dread cooking a big meal. With Dustin not being home in time to eat it and knowing my girls won't touch it. Some days, well most days, I don't even bother. Simple and quick is my favorite.

They love to cuddle and be with me, or Dustin when he is home. I go upstairs, they follow. I watch tv, they are right beside me or ON me. I'm on the computer, they are right beside me or ON me. It's pretty funny, well sometimes anyways. I like my space and so my shower is my space. So I take a LONG shower.

They throw tantrums, and I just let them throw them. They do it to get attention and stare at me the whole time to see if i'll acknowledge it and I don't. If they need a time out, they get a time out. This happens a lot actually. All 3 of them usually end up on the bottom stair together. They are so ticked. It's actually amazing, they stay there! Kyla NEVER stayed in time outs. EVER. EVER!! It sucked. I had to lock her in her room until she calmed down. But these girls sit and don't move until I say. Then I say "ok go give "Kyla" or whoever, a hug," they'll go over and hug them. It's awesome.

They love to color, still. They actually don't color on the walls anymore. Thank goodness. So that keeps them happy while I do my stuff. They love to play together. They laugh and laugh. They are so tough too, they get hurt all the time and barely cry.

To sum these girls up, they are hilarious. I always told my mom how funny they were and they are just so hilarious to watch. Then they came and totally saw what I meant. They are so entertaining to watch.

Here is a couple videos to show you what I mean. They are like this ALL THE TIME. The first one is them just playing, like normal. The second they had this little doll hat on their heads and would make it fall off and were laughing so hard. My mom took both these videos, I need to invest in a video camera. Like yesterday.
