Place an order

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be placing a Scentsy order this weekend. Remember, these make WONDERFUL Christmas gifts! You can call me and order or order online - click here . If you don't know what Scentsy is... it is one of the greatest things ever invented! It is a wickless candle. You have all of the benfits of a yummy smelling home without the risk of fire, soot, and smoke. Please check out my website Simply break off portions of your highly-scented, soft wax bar and add them to one of our warmers for hours of aroma. When the fragrance is gone, simply pour the warm liquid into a disposable container, wipe the warmer pot with a dry paper towel and put in a new scent. Enjoy our highly scented candle wax. Since we have no flame we can put in 3x more scent than the average candle. Save big! Our Scentsy bars have 50-80 hours of scent time the same amount of time as most large candles. What makes this even better is our wax bars only cost $5.00 compared to most high quality jar candles which can cost $20-$30. Enjoy great scent: worry and soot free.
Did I mention I gift wrap for FREE?

Funny little Ella

I just had to do this post, because lately Ella has been doing the funniest things. I thought that I had better write this all down so I don't forget it (because this really is my journal). Underneath each picture I will do a little description. The first 4 pictures all happened in the same day! It was really quiet in the backroom, John thought Ella was in the kitchen with me, and I thought she was watching TV with John. Nope! She decided to take all of her diapers out of their storage spot and "refill" her drawer. There were about 35 diapers in the drawer. She wasn't in the room though, but we heard her in our bathroom... This is what we found! Ella emptied an entire (brand new) roll of toilet paper. When we asked her what she was doing, she put her head down and pretended to clean the floor with the toilet paper.

Later that day Ella was in her room playing, when I went to check on her I found her covered in baby powder. She had gotten into a drawer and figured out how to open the container. She dumped it all over the floor, then proceeded to put it all over her face like make-up.
We bought a cute little Disney Princess cot for Ella to use when she has sleepovers at grandma's house (and for Hawaii in January). When we opened it up Ella refused to get off of it. She just wants to lay in it all day. She even wants to eat in it!

Many of you know that Ella absolutely LOVES Halloween - "Ween" as she calls it. She always wants to wear her Halloween costume (as you will see in the next few pictures).
Ella wanted to "sleep" with the babies. Dean and Elysee were both crying, needless to say Ella only wanted to be with them for about 1 minute.
Ella loves anything to do with water. She loves swimming, bath time, washing her hands... She has figured out how to climb up on the toilet, then proceed to the counter. This time we found her IN the sink with the water on. The bathroom door in now kept closed!
Along with Ella's Halloween obsession she is in love with a creepy Halloween decoration which she has named "Guy". Now that Halloween is over we don't know what to do with him. Ella would have a melt down if he was packed away until next year. So we did what any desperate parent would do... she has creepy "Guy" in her room. We have decided to dress him up for the different seasons/holidays. Ella squealed with delight when we put her Halloween costume on him. He will be sporting a Santa hat pretty soon. She is also obsessed with this cartoon Halloween movie. There is a witch in it that looks kind of like Guy and that is why she loves the movie. You'll also notice the toothbrush. She loves to brush her teeth and spit in the sink.
I know Ella looks funny in this, but she is showing you what another creepy Halloween guy at Nana and Papa's house can do. He can blink his eyes, dance, and move his mouth. Ella will mimic all of these, but our favorite is when she blinks. For some reason when she blinks fast, she gets an Elvis lip. It makes us laugh every time.
Ella is pretending to be asleep. She does this quite often, then just giggles with her eyes closed.
She is trying to fit into our nice comfy camera case. When she realized that we caught her, she started laughing.
Ella has become a little diva lately. When she has her mind set on something that she wants to wear she will let you know. The last couple of times that we have gone out she insists on wearing her witch hat. This picture was taken when Ella and I were going to the grocery store. There were a few older women who told Ella they liked her hat. When we were in line she took the hat off and waved it around and said in a very loud voice "HAT". We had a few strange looks, probably because Halloween was a week ago.
Ella is doing her kissy/funny face.
I just had to post this! I took this picture about 2 seconds ago. John is getting ready for work and walked out of the bedroom with a sucker stuck to his shirt! He pretended he didn't know that it was on there. I couldn't stop laughing, I had tears in my eyes. She put it in with his clean clothes. I didn't give her the sucker and neither did John, so she had to have gotten into the cupboard and tried to hide the evidence.

Matchy Matchy

I absolutely love to dress the kids the same! Here are some cute pictures of matching sisters and matching twins. I know it is cheesy but I think it is adorable!


I just wanted everyone to enjoy the beautiful view from our new place (downtown Salt Lake).

Sunday, November 2, 2008


Today we had the wonderful opportunity to have the twins blessed. It was really nice. We went to our old ward and saw some wonderful friends and were able to say goodbye. Elysee looked so beautiful and Dean looked so handsome. After they were blessed we went to dinner at Chili's. We had a lot of family there and we were so grateful that everyone came. We were sorry that our family who lives pretty far (2 in Alaska and 1 in Rhode Island) weren't able to make it. We missed them. John gave both of the babies beautiful blessings and I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful husband who is a priesthood holder. Oh yea, I was going to post the babies stats from their 2 month checkup. Here they are,
Dean - 10lb. 14oz. (22nd %) - 23 inches (52nd %)
Elysee - 10 lb. 3 oz. (23rd %) - 22.2 inches (41st %)


We had a lot of fun on Halloween. Ella liked trick-or-treating (she really loved getting candy). We went down to Nana and Papa Eisenhart's. Every year they always do a spook ally. It's funny because adults are scared to go through, but not our little dare devil Ella. She loved it!

We tried to get a good picture of all of the kids, but it didn't seem like anyone wanted to cooperate.
