Simple Life

Life these days have been very routine oriented and relaxing. We have been home now for over a month which seems a bit odd considering how often we traveled during the summer. It is nice to not have anywhere to be, or anywhere to go, and I feel like Will and Evvie are enjoying the "down time" by exploring every inch of our small, two bedroom apartment, (As shown below).
It is insane how many messes these two can manage to make in just minutes! I am still feeling fairly new at this motherhood thing, and I just can't quite seem to figure out how to keep everything in your house clean, everyday! I suppose it is something you learn as you go. But for now I am putting the blame on Will & Evvie Jane!  They thought they were pretty hilarious in these pictures!!They have so much fun together and are starting to play so cute with each other. 

On another note, we have slowly found ourselves enjoying the weather here in Arizona. Now don't get me wrong, it's nowhere NEAR pleasant, but you can actually sit outside for a good 10 minutes and not feel as if the heat is slowly suffocating you. I can't wait until the weather is good and we can be outside more. I am a bit homesick right now however, because I know the Cedar Mountain is looking gorgeous as it's colors are starting to show. :( There is definitely no sign of fall here in Glendale!

These are some pictures I took of our family enjoying one of those said days. 

 Evvie still loves to eat everything she finds and gets extremely frustrated if we ever try to stop her! The picture above shows her glaring at me as I tell her she better not eat the stick!!
 Will is so observant and is always pointing to things. I swear he notices things that I don't even notice! He is so curious about everything around him!
 Throwing rocks off of the bridge to the fish. There are hundreds of disgusting coy fish in the lakes around our apartments. I say disgusting because if you ever even walk over the bridge they immediately  come to the surface and start swimming all over each other trying to get a good position for the food all of the little kids throw them everyday. I used to think it was cool, but now I find myself a bit disgusted! Oh well, Will loves it.
 You know Lance & I are proud to see Will wearing an SUU T-bird shirt! Hopefully he will be a baller like his parents so we can relive our glory days through him! ;)
 Once again, throwing things into the water. Every time he throws anything he grunts as if it was the biggest throw he has ever made. Cute.
Evvie Jane is always sure to keep her baby well fed and taken care of. Evvie and I spend a lot of quality time together as she always wakes up from her nap an hour or two, sometimes THREE hours before Will. My boy definitely knows how to sleep. Evvie on the other hand has been a light sleeper from day 1!! Sometimes I imagine what my life would be like if they both took a 3 hour nap at the same time everyday. I must admit, on a rare occasion it does happen, (I'm talking like 3 times). On those times it is amazing how much I get done! I find myself almost sprinting to get the housework done, and if I ever do get it done, then I just don't quite know what to do with myself! ANYWAYS, enough about that. I love the one on one time I get with my girl!

 Sometimes Evvie lets me put curlers in her hair. But, to this day she never leaves them in long enough to work! On this occasion she had managed to pull all of them out but 3 within a few minutes. Someday I will get to see the finished product!

Life is good. Lance is in his 3rd year and we figured out where his rotations will be next year! We will be here in Arizona, then up to Twin Falls, Idaho, then we finish up in Fort Collins, Colorado! I am excited to get to live in some fun and different places! If anyone knows of anyone who could help us out on knowing where to get a good apartment for 3 months in those areas, let me know!!

Well, I don't know much about apartments in Twin Falls area, but I do know some great hook ups in Ft. Collins. (Although, maybe I could come and visit you once in a while in Twin since that is just about 2 hours from where I live. That would be fun!) That just happens to be where I am right at this moment. visiting my sisters. I have two sisters who live here I when you give me the word, I will have them helping as much as you want in looking for apartments and asking around! That is super exciting. Your babies are adorable and your photography is breathtaking. I am jealous of your have so many! Glad to know that things for you and Lance are going good.
