Elianna is a month old now. I cant believe it!! She still is about the same size. I haven't taken very many pictures of her because she is always either sleeping or eating. But I heard that one of my friends has already taken one thousand pictures of her one week old baby sister so I decided I had some catching up to do. :)

Sorry the post is one day late, Holly. :)

The Hobbit

Last week The Hobbit came out. I am sure most of you knew that. :) Daddy took Hannah and me along with several other dads and daughters from our church to see it the day it came out. We were all super excited!! We went to a 11:20 p.m. showing but beforhand we got ice cream sundaes in Riverpark. Those were the biggest ice cream sundaes I have ever seen. Five girls split three and we still didn't finish them. 
  All of us together.

After our ice cream we went to the theater to save our seats. We watched it in 3D, and I must say our 3D glasses were quite stylish. :)
While we were waiting for the movie all of us girls did our hair in elf hairstyles. We were rather successful considering we only had two ponytail holders and two boppy pins to share between us all.

The movie was really good. They did a good job making a movie that comes before movies that were already made. Some people thought they didn't stick with the book very well, but they actually did because most of the things they added came either from the Lord of the Rings or the appendices. The actor who played Bilbo did a really good job with his part. My favorite characters were Bilbo, Kihili (I think that's how you spell it) and Thorin. The problem is I know Kihili and Thorin are going to die in the last movie. :( I still like the Lord of the Rings better because I miss a lot of the characters in those movies, but The Hobbit is great.  I can't wait for them to come out with the next one. (Wait, I am not going to get started on that Hannah III)  I am sorry that this is not a very good movie review but I have never done one before. What do those of you who saw the movie think of it?
Thank you to all the dads who took us. You made a very memorable evening for your daughters and we had a wonderful time with you!! :)


On December 6th it was Hannah's 15th birthday. For her birthday I took her to a neighbors yard for a photo shoot. I was going to post some of the pictures sooner but we have been super busy so here they are now two weeks later.

There were pictures I liked better but she got to pick which ones I posted.
I also want to take this post to say how much I love Hannah. I do not know how I would survive without her. Since we spent 14 years being the only girls in our family we are really good friends. She is my best friend ever. She knows me better than anybody but she is very sweet not to use that against me. :) She is a very loving and caring person. She is also full of life and when she is excited about something it is evident. She loves to act  in fact she and I are planing on how to put that to use in our own movies since the boys aren't really into making movies with girls in them right now. :) I love you, Hannah. Happy belated 15th birthday!!! Remember 15 is a great age. :)

Post for Maddie

Maddie, I loved the last picture you posted of the beautiful skies in Flagstaff. But I want to say that we get amazing skies here too. This is today's sunset and the colors are gorgeous. A beautiful way to end a rainy day!!

The Piano Guys

These guys are so talented. It was hard for me to decide which ones I should post. Their songs are great and their music videos are amazing.

I didn't know you could do so much with one piano! I like their version better than the real thing :)
I love the scenery in this one. It is so beautiful and "middle earthish".

Happy December!!

Happy December everyone!!! I can't believe it is December already. I told you that I would post more pictures of Elianna but she is always either sleeping or eating so it is hard to get pictures of her. Here is one of the best ones I have taken.
Since it is December now fall is over even if it doesn't officially end till the 21st. Besides all the beautiful autumn leaves have blown away. So these are the last fall pictures you will see from me.

We had a wonderful rainstorm at the beginning of the week. Actually it was 5 days long. I loved it. i really enjoy bad weather. But when the storm was over the clouds were amazing. I wish I could have taken a picture from an airplane because the view from above must have been breathtaking. 
At one point the clouds looked like waves breaking over the mountain.
Daddy, Hannah and I went to a Civil War country dance at our friends ranch. It was so much fun. Hannah and I made Civil War era work dresses for the dance.

Anyway, happy December again!! It is the last month of 2012 so enjoy it.
