New Camera Pics

I got my camera today! I haven't played around with the settings yet, these are just taken on auto, so hopefully I'll learn all the fun features/settings soon! My favorite thing so far is how fast it takes the picture, Ella is napping so i'm excited to try it out on her when she wakes up!

The girls

Yesterday we made a cake. We only had half a can of frosting so its kinda spotty!
But it still tasted good!
Lily was grumpy she didn't get any cake
She loves her new blanket from a lady in our ward..
(I think we'll get her another one for her easter basket..what do you put in a babys easter basket?!?)
I think Lily gets the chunky face from her mama!

Easter Bunny

Ella and Lily getting ready to go see the Easter Bunny!
She was really excited to see the bunny...until Joe put her on the bunnys lap
After we made her sit on the bunny she was really nervous even being around it! ha
She got these cute bunny ears and wore them while we shopped
We were going to take Ella to build a bear but it was CRAZY so we just walked the mall..
Burger King had this play with your food thing going on so we stopped and got Ella free easy mac and apple fries, she got to color and then do a relay race (there is a video of it at the end)..much more fun the build a bear and even better.. free!
Ella and Joe with the giant food!
This picture is out of order, it should go after the one of her with the mac n cheese dinosaur..she was so scared of it! Then the guy that was walking around with the dinosaur gave Ella a mac n cheese backpack and she was soo happy!
Ella with her new backpack on
Cheesasaurus Rex
I had to move fast because he was turning and I almost got knocked down by his tail! ha
Ella and Daddy
Me and Lily
Lily had all the excitement she could handle!
While we were letting Ella finish her food, who should happen to walk by?
She didn't get scared, she just said, "bye bunny!"

Ella doing the relay race, she was afraid of the dude running it so it took her awhile to get into it!

She loves to read!
(this kid can find a horse in ANY book she has)
It's hard to get a good picture of her these days, she's always running! She will run in a circle around the living room yelling "round and round, round and round!"
This is Lilys sad face, it pretty much cracks me up!

Stacking the blocks as high as she can, so she can kick it over!

Modeling her new rain gear
(the rain coat and boots are some of the ones I got when the Childrens Orchard
was going out of business when Ella was like 6 months old)

Cute Lily
New dress...
Lilys other new thing is that she spits bubbles, its pretty funny, when she gets excited or when she's chatty she gets these little spit bubbles all over
Shes getting so big!
This is really long and probably boring to anyone but my Mom..

Tomorrow we are taking the girls to see the Easter bunny at the mall..right now Ella is pretty excited, so I hope she stays that way and doesn't freak out! We are going to the farther away mall because the easter bunny at the South Towne mall freaks me out, so I don't want it to scare Ella! I was kinda bummed when I found out the Provo mall wasnt doing the easter bunny this year. We've taken ella there every year and its fun to see the same bunny/background with Ella a year older, but hopefully it will be close! AND next Saturday(Mom can you help me remember!!) we get to take her to see the Budweiser Clydesdales at Wal-Mart and she will be soo excited to see them! I don't have anything else..and the video is not done uploading..guess i'll go to bed and post in the mornin!

2 month stats

Lily is just over 2 months and had her 2 month check this morning (which was unscheduled and kinda crazy because I had a dentist appointment at 12:00! (her dr. appointment was at 10:45 but they are never quick! I was only a few min late so i guess its all good...) anyhoo she is 24 inches and weighs 12lbs 120z...for height she's in the 97th percentile and for weight was in the 70 something percentile..she had to get three shots, and drink one (which i thought was really weird because Ella never had one like that) I guess it was the rotovirus one or something new..I think her shots are bothering her more then Ellas did when she was a baby, Lily has just wanted to be held and eat all afternoon! Poor baby..but it gave me an excuse not to clean and finish my book, which was really pretty good (The Magicians and Mrs. Quent) Tonight we are going to the Library for some Zoo thing, not sure exactly what that will be but I will post pictures when we get home!

The sweater makes her look huge, but its cute!

Ella enjoying Lilys jumperoo

Happy St. Patricks day to ME!

I've been looking to buy a digital SLR since I took a photography class with Jessica last year (was it last year?maybe two..) anyway I've been looking for a good deal, and yesterday when I checked my ebay messages I had a 10% off any item! But I had to decide which camera to get and buy it that day! (the coupon was only good for St. Patricks day) So I spent all day looking at the different ones...I read a lot of reviews about the nikon d60 and the canon rebel xs (the two in the price range i could afford!) and basically they are the same..so I went with what one looked better! I liked the smooth lines of the canon and I found an awesome kit that came with lenses and all sorts of stuff that the nikon didn't..and Joes cousin had a canon rebel at the funeral and she said she really liked it...soo here it is!
(Now I just have to wait a week for it to get here!)
