"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

I should be showering....

...but of coarse instead I had to blog! Seems like thats how most days go! I have to decided between things.. Do I get dressed for the day or try to finish laundry? Do I actually do my hair or should I finish the dishes? Do I make dinner or make my bed? You may think I'm kidding... I'm not! (Jessica will understand!!!)

Yes, I absolutely love my kids but man-o-man are they work!! By the time Robbie walks in the door I'm  burnt out! And Madden and Bostyn are GREAT babies! They don't fuss (to much), I can tell the difference between their crys so I (usually) know what they want! I have them on a schedule which helps with naps and nighttime. but MAN- it's still not easy! 

We've had lots going on around here. Ok, maybe not LOTS but enough to keep us going! We were lucky enough to have BOTH of our cars in the shop costing us $800 to fix - awesome. Seems like since we've had our cars paid off we really haven't had any extra money every month because something always goes wrong!! I paid off the twins hospital stay and delivery the moment I received the bills yet somehow they never got them? I use to mail in payments until 5 checks just disappeared in the same month so I went to paying bills online and now thats not really fixing our problem either! I HATE PAYING BILLS!! Besides that the days seem to just fly by and most of the time I don't even know what day of the week it is! Robbie is super busy right now with work and school so most days he is only home to help get the kids ready for bed and the moment I lay them down it seems like I race into my bed and fall asleep before my head hits the pillow!

I don't really have anything exciting or really the "blog worthy" to write about so I will just share some pictures and maybe go get dressed for the day!!! 

((favorite picture!! haha! his face cracks me up!))

Blessing and more!

I have been loving every minute with these two babes! They are my whole life now and I wouldn't have it any other way! They are all smiles and lots of cuddles! They are changing everyday and I am so grateful that I am able to be at home with them and watch them as they discover their new world!

One of their favorite things to do it stare at the fan! They will lay for quite some time just smiling and "talking" to the fan! Cheap entertainment if you ask me!! Who needs baby toys!? 

Don't mind that I just rolled out of bed and put some clothes on (which is how most days go!!) but I just love this picture with both of them! They are SO attentive and curious! 

i LOVE this picture!! I just adore her HUGE eyes and big lips! Plus she makes for an extra cute little pink monster! I will have to upload the picture of Madden in his blue one!

BLESSING DAY!! What a great day this was with all of our friends and family! Rob is so amazing and did such a great job! The babes were on there best behavior and looked adorable! One of my clients made Bostyns dress and Madden actually wore Robbies blessing outfit! 

Yes, this is the one decent picture I got of the two of them together! Lets just say that it had been a few days since Madden had "filled his diaper!" So he wasn't very happy while he was awake! Poor guy!

4 Generations! Great Grandma Nelson and Grandpa Trace! Look closely and Miss Bost is smiling at my grandma!! They LOVE her!!

Life is busy but we love it! The kids sleep great and Bostyn has been sleeping through the night! Madden goes 7 ours though so I can't complain! They are both getting VERY chubby! Close to 13 pounds now! The Dr. say they are no longer considered as premie babies and they are in the 75% on the charts!! Besides being kinda short! I put away all their newborn clothes yesterday! Whoever says newborn is from 5-8 pounds is nuts! They fit just fine up to 11 pounds on these two!! 

I am so thankful for my life! It is perfect and I love going through changes together as a family! I have such a great support from family and I love seeing my brothers and sisters. I hope we can all live close someday because family IS all that matters. I am especially thankful for Robbie and how hard he works so I can be the one to raise our kids. I love him and the person that he is and think that he is the worlds greatest Dad! (next to my dad of coarse!!)

Hope everything is going so great to everyone that reads this too! We love you all!! :)
