The Love Dare

This last weekend Russ and I watched " My Story,The Emma Smith Story" It was a really good movie. I loved the way that Emma and Joseph were with each other. They were so supportive of each other in so many ways. I loved that they were so happy,patient and kind to each other. They went through so many trials and yet they were still so in love. This made me think of another movie that Russ and I watched. Fireproof. In this movie it was the complete opposite. The couple portrayed, did not get along at all. They fought all the time and they were angry at each other to the point of contemplating divorce. In the movie the husband is given a book called "The Love Dare" it is a book to help you become selfless and learn to love your spouse. I won't tell you how the movie ended but it got me wondering. What would happen in I did the love dare? What if I took this challenge? I want to have a loving relationship like Joseph and Emma. I want to learn to be more selfless. I pray that I may become a more caring and loving spouse!

No more pictures PLEASE!

I love this sweater that McKaylee is wearing so I wanted to get some cute pictures with her in it. Of course I had a hard time getting her to smile. When I finally did I decided to move her to another spot to get a different light.

We moved to the couch and she didn't seem to pleased with me. She was having a good time on the computer chair. It goes around in circles.

I finally got her to smile but then she had had enough. I promised her everything, only if she would stay still and get a few more pictures. Do you think that happened?

Nope! She was done, and to prove she was done she started to cry. She is so stubborn. I don't know where she gets that from? She still looks cute when she cries so just to get even I took a picture! What a cutie!

Brush 'em

Now that Daphnee is getting her 5th tooth! Yes I said 5th tooth she loves to take the time to keep them nice and shiny.

She got this toothbrus from McKaylee. She loves it so much that she freaks out whenever she drops it. She is just like me! I love to brush my teeth!

I don't think you can see all of her teeth but the two on the bottom are super white and shiny!

I love her smile! She makes me so happy!

McKaylee - isms

We bought McKaylee a little purse. She loves to put her blocks in it and walk around the house

Russ is so lucky to have so many girls in his life!

Me and McKaylee going for a walk

McKaylee is really into stacking blocks now. She is getting really good at it.

She built this tower with a little help from mommy.

No McKaylee isn't dressing up as E.T. for halloween. Doesn't she look like it a little though!

McKaylee loves to try and dress herself. She gets pretty creative!


When you look at these pictures do you notice anything different with Daphnee?

She got her ears pierced! She did such a good job. A ton of people stopped to watch her get them done. Daphnee started crying on the second ear and McKaylee felt bad for her sister. She wanted to help her fell better.

Daphnee LOVES to be in her bouncer. She gets so excited when she has the freedom to jump and hang out. She gets some pretty good air too!

One good thing about the bouncer is that is helps wear her out. She gets such a workout.

Daphnee is such a good eater. She loves breakfast, lunch and dinner. She gets a little upset with me if I don't feed her fast enough

Here is an updated picture of Daphnee. I love her smile. She knows exactly what to do to brighten my day.
