LOOK OUT!!!!!!

We have been invaded by Chicken Pox! I don't know how it happened but on Tuesday morning I found 3 little pox on Sophies bum. Luckily she has been immunized for them and she won't get too bad. Of course this has to happen when we have a wedding to go to and Laynies blessing to get ready for this week! But what is hard for me is that Laynie is too young to get immunized and has to stay far far away from her big sister so she doesn't get it. I guess chicken pox is really scary in babies. This has been really hard for Sophie because she wants to love on her baby sister. I tell Sophie that she needs to stay away from the baby so she doesn't turn into a chicken. Needless to say Laynie has been spending a lot of time in her swing so she doesn't get infected!
P.S. We have pushed back the blessing to next Sunday at 1pm

Heidi's Wedding

My cousin Heidi got married on Saturday to a great guy named Kevin. My girls were flower girls and had the cutest dresses! We had such a great time at the reception! It would not be a wedding in our family if there wasn't lost of music and dancing. Heidi looked so beautiful and I wish Heidi and Kevin lots of love and happiness!

Thank You

Thank you to all those who have given their love and support to my cousin Ben and his family. We had Kynslees funeral on Monday and things went really well. Everyone did a great job during the service and the Spirit was so strong. I am so thankful to know that families are forever and that we can be with Kynslee again someday!

Kynslee Lamb

My heart is broken right now for my cousin Ben and his wife Teea. They have just lost there six month old baby girl. She was such a joy in our lives and she is going to be greatly missed. I am at a loss for what I can do for them so I set up a donation fund in her name. This is the e-mail that I sent out to all of our family and friends.

Kynslee Jean Lamb, daughter of Ben and Teea Lamb was born on Monday, September 24 at 7:12 pm. She was 5 lbs and 10 ounces and 19 inches long. She was born with many heart problems including Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome. We were unsure that she would ever take a breath so we have been blessed with her sweet spirit for the past six months. This is a miracle in of itself. After a long hard battle she returned to her Heavenly Father on April 15th.
Ben and Teea have been left with many financial burdens. If you would like to help ease those burdens donations can be made at any Washington Mutual branch. The account is under the name of Kynslee Lamb or Amanda Carol Anderson. The best way to access the account is through this account number: 4414863088. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Ben and Teea would like to thank everyone for there love and support through this difficult time. Funeral plans are pending and we will let you know as soon as they are ready. If you have any questions please contact Amanda Anderson.
Thank You.

First Photo Shoot

Laynie had her very first photo shoot last week taken by my friend Abbey with AK Studio and Design. She is the best photographer! She came to my house and set up all her lights and props and did a fantastic job! Please go to her website to see the rest of the cute pictures she took of Laynie. There is a link under my friends and family. There are so many cute ones that I don't know which ones to use for my announcements!

Yes everyone this is my husband Bodi in a box! I thought Sophie was the only one entertained by a cardboard box but I guess I was wrong. Sophie talked him into climbing in and once he got there is was hard to get out! He is such a great daddy to the girls and plays so well with them! He always helps me to put things into perspective. The other day I was frustrated with our messy house and fussy kids. He grabbed me and said "look at this... this is exactly what we imagined when we got married! Isn't this great!!!" He really helped me to see that I have been blessed with everything I have ever wanted!

Life with 2!

Life with two kids is crazy but lots of fun! Sophie is adjusting so well to being a big sister. She wants to hold Laynie everyday. She always has to give her a kiss before her nap and is so excited to see her when she wakes up! Laynie is finally starting to get into a routine at night!! Bodi and I are getting a few more hours of sleep now which makes me feel like a whole new person. I am feeling almost back to normal except I can't lift anything over 10lbs for two more weeks. When I try to lift something I am feeling it the next day. I am starting to go a little stir crazy in the house and I want to clean everything but then I run out of energy and want to go to bed at 7pm. Oh well!
