Warm weather and fun!!

The Porter Girls
We tried to take some cute pictures but Kate wasn't having any of it. Kylie on the other hand was hamming is up- She is the sweetest girl.

The Party bus!!

Kylie got to come to dinner- Lucky Girl!!
Our cousin kaelie helped me in the bath tub with the girls.
Everyone loves this sweet Girl!!
This is a love-hate relationship at it's finest. These two didn't know if they were best friends or enemies.

Thanks to Aunt Heidi for the matching jammies- We had a fun PJ party-

So I know a major catch up is necessary but the holiday season's are crazy right. Well I have been out and about since the beginning of December. I have been having a really good time but we haven't been on a schedule much and not alot of down time so blogging has definately on the back burner. I went to AZ for my Grandma's Mannings 90th birthday party and all of my brothers and sister came and we had a great catch up week. Since we were all here we celebrated my sister's 40th birthday by giving her a make-over and renting a party bus and taking her to a nice dinner. SO FUN UH!!
Then I took off to my old stomping grounds Oceanside, CA to see my old friends. It was so fun to see everyone. I miss that place so much. I got to go to the ward party and see the ward and rememer the great friends that I left there. Then Off to Palm Springs with the Asay's, Harrison's and Pinon's, (a trip that we planned month's ago.) Oh yea- and I got to see my husband again and my girls got to see their daddy. We had a great time just hanging around, getting a massage and pedicures. Can't beat that uh!! So here are some of the pictures that are on my mom's computer- Best I can do at this point. Merry Christmas to all-

Happy Halloween!!

It was a busy week of Parties and fun. Kate had a busy agenda everyday this week and got to dress up alot and loved every minute of it. She was Minnie Mouse for Halloween but she also had some princess parties to hit up so she had to get attire for all occasions. Kylie was a pea in a pod and could have really cared less about the whole thing. (she hasn't been sleeping well so she wasn't in the party mood.) We also go a little pet kitten on Friday which I'm totally not a cat person or even an animal person, but she is actually really cute and Kate loves her, maybe even alittle to much, and even more surprising Donny loves her the most. I thought he would have been mad at me for getting her but he lets her sit on his lap and takes her out to play and talks to her in baby talk. It really cute but totally unexpected. Who would have known.

Didn't you know Snow White rides a quad.

Kate at the ward party!!

Kate's first boyfriend Of course it was a dog. She followed this little boy around and made him hold her had. They were really cute.

Kylie was already to go trick or treating and lasted about 2 minutes in her stroller and then she was fast asleep.

I didn't stage this picture I promise ( I don't really want the cat by my baby) But I thought it was cute.

This is how Donny chills now, with the kitten on his chest or shoulder SO WEIRD uh!!!

More Choo Choo pease!!!

Every morning when Kate woke up she said "ride choo choo" it is all she talked about all week, so we went toLattin Farm again for the choo choo. She ran to the cow train and rode it 8 times in a row, and everytime it stopped she just said "more choo choo pease" She loves the the pumkin festival and would live there if I would let her. At the end of the day she got stung by a bee on the face and she screamed until I asked her if she wanted to ride the choo and she quit crying and said "yea" She is still made that the bee bite me but still hasn't had enough of Lattin Farms.

My Little Pumkins

This is where Kylie was hanging out, while Kate was playing. She liked pulling the grass and putting it in her mouth. Where did I get these girls. She was a good sport all day.

It's hard to see but this is her little swollen face about 8 hours later. I think she might wake up with a black eye. She'll look tough.

What a FUN weekend!!

Saturday morning I wanted to do something fun but we just knew that Fallon had nothing to offer. We were wrong. We first took the girls to Wal-mart to get new bike tube so we could go on a ride and found the walmart parking lot busting with fun. They had fire trucks, helicopers and Mcgruff the crime dog. Kate got balloons and stuffed animals, she was so happy. Then we went to Lattin Farms to the pumkin festival and we all had so much fun. Kate was in love with the cow train (and yes the cow car is named Annie) She rode the train probably 15 times and they had a petting zoo and hayride out to the pumkin patch. The weather was awesome and it was just a great family day.

Donny's perfect pumkin!!!

Lainey and Kate are quite the little friends.

These tough guys and their strollers. Also proof the Kylie was there with us. She just chilled in her stoller like a good girl all day.

More of the cow train!!!

I don't know who had more fun Kate or Donny!


Last weekend a cold front moved through and it was freezing. We woke up Friday morning and this is what we saw. Kate wanted to make a "now man". Pretty crazy for October.

BA BA is Brokee

Kate is going through some real growing up pains these days. Yesterday she bit the tip off her bottle during nap time and so I used that opprotunity to throw our babas away. She did it willingly and the told everyone that her baba was brokeeee. Last night was our first night without and it wasn't the smoothest night, she missed it tons and now she is in her bed (for naptime) crying for mama and dad. I don't really know what I'm doing here so if anyone has any advice and on how to take bottles away I'm all ears (and no that is not an excuse for big ear jokes). Thanks and love you all-

It was so fun to get away and see the sites and be with friends. They babies got to make the trip with us but they bigger baby stayed home with Grandma and grandpa and aunt Shelly (she wasn't so excited to see us home, she loved being the center of their world for the weekend. So Happy anniversary to David and Sarah, Happy Birthday to Amanda and So good to See Cassie and Ryan again.

Big Girl Kylie!!!

Kylie at almost 4 months

Kylie has changed so much this last month. She has the sweetest personality and she has been the best baby (even better than Kate, hard to believe) She just started rolling over and she laughs out loud at about anything, she just loves anyone to talk to her and she'll flash that cute little dimple. Got to love this sweet angel. I know I am truly the most blessed momma ever to have two sweet girls.

We spent last week in Tahoe for a Family reunion and it was so much fun. We had the best time, we relaxed, played, beached, biked and boated and of course ate very very well. Kate loved the fact that she could be outside at all times and was filthy dirty most of the time. We took family pictures which is always fun, right. Above is a picture of all the grandkids and great- grandkids. Grandpa, Aunt shelly, Kevin, Donny, me and the girls.

Crazy Kid jumping off the pier.

We took Kate and Kylie out on the boat with Grandma Jean, great aunt Gwen and Aunt Heather.

Kylie out on the boat, this is her kind of fun.

Kate loved jumping out of the boat and driving the boat. She thought she was pretty tough stuff.

We went on a bike ride and found these dogs at the top of a hill. She was in love and we had to peel her away from them.

The water is teal and the clearest water I have ever seen. It was beautiful!!!
