24...Who, me?

So this last Memorial weekend we went down to Mt. Pleasant, Utah. The Seely's have a family house down there that is around 150 years old and it is a new tradition for everyone to get together and go down for the Memorial weekend. We left on Friday and drove down. We were able to leave Teddy with some of our good friends and it was so nice not to have to worry about him while we were gone! Friday was also my 24th birthday! Man, where has the time gone!?! We actually stayed in Ephraim which is about 15 minutes away from Mt. Pleasant in a bed and breakfast. That night Tyler's parents went and got me a cake and we celebrated my birthday! It was so nice to celebrate it with family! Over the next few days we went to a festival they had in Ephraim and just had fun at the house. They have a go cart and a three wheeler that we drove around and played some volleyball too! We went to Sacrament meeting on Sunday and after that we were able to go on a tour of another really old Seely house. That house was amazing but it was sad because it hasn't been kept up and renovation would probably be so expensive! Monday was the day that we did some cleaning and work around the house. Tara, Morgan and I went for a nice walk with the babies too! Later that day we stopped by and saw Grandma and Grandpa Jensen. They haven't seen Ella yet and so it was nice to visit them and have them see Ella! We had a great weekend and it was so much fun to hang out and see everyone!

Go cart time!

Yes there really were 24 candles and the cake was delicious!

Wow, where have I been?

Wow I really haven't put any new posts up in a really long time! So many things have happened since then too. I got to celebrate my first Mother's Day and it was an amazing day! We went to church and then afterwards Ella and I came home. Tyler had a meeting for the Young Men's and so we came home and waited for him. Then after an hour he still wasn't home and I was starving! When he got home he came in with flowers, a singing card and the Twilight movie! It was so sweet. Cole came over and we went up to Lucky Peak and had a picnic. It was such a beautiful day and the weather was perfect! Thanks honey for an amazing first Mother's Day! My mom came down a couple weeks ago too and we had a really fun weekend! We got Ella's ears pierced and it was so sad to hear her scream and cry from it but she got over it pretty quick and she looks adorable with her pierced ears! I wanted to get them down while she was a baby because I can keep her ears cleaned so they don't get infected and she won't remember the pain of getting them pierced. Actually I don't think it hurts that bad but I got mine done when I was 9 months old and my mom kept them clean for me and they never have been infected! My mom's visit was a short one but it was so nice to have her down. I miss her a lot and now having a daughter of my own I feel like I understand her a little better. Well this is all for now but I will post more later!

When my mom was down a couple weeks ago or so she took this picture of us after church!

We got Ella's ears pierced and yes she screamed! It broke my heart but she calmed down after a few minutes and hasn't touched her ears or anything. They are so cute!

Getting things started

Yard Work

The weather wasn't too bad this afternoon. It was pretty windy but the sun was out and it wasn't that cold. Tyler was out mowing the lawn and Teddy was out barking at the lawn mower. We think he's intimidated by it and so the only thing he can do is to bark at it. Just our theory but who really knows what's in his little head! So Ella and I decided to join the fun! Its been so cold and rainy lately so it was really refreshing to see some sun! Ella hung out all warm in her bouncer on the deck. Tyler kept having to put her mittens back on because she kept getting them off! I was in the garden trying to get all the weeds out. Weeds are such a pain in the butt and I hate them with a passion! Our garden has a ton of strawberries in it and my plan is to plant a bunch of other things in there too. Its a lot of work though, who knew! Haha. So after we came back inside I took a picture of Ella. She looked so cute in her outfit and little hat. Pauline made it for her and it fits her so well! Its so adorable and she didn't mind it at all!

Ella loves the camera!

Ella sometimes sleeps better on her side. She put her hands like this! So precious!!!

She's making noises!

Teddy and Ella. They love each other!

I had her on her side and she rolled over like this! Way to hold your head up!!!

Ella with her daddy!

So I was taking some pictures of Ella and she didn't even throw a fit! I think she likes being in just a diaper. She's been doing a lot of talking lately too! I think she loves the sound of her voice and just wants it to be heard! This Wednesday she will be 4 months old and I can't believe how the time is just flying by! I know I've said this before but she is just the happiest baby! Whenever I see her smile or laugh it just brings the biggest smile to my face and I can't help but give her a million kisses! She truly is so special and I am so proud to be her mommy! And I know I can say that Tyler feels the same way, proud to be her daddy! So here are some of the pictures I took of her! :)
