Alice Update

By way of an update, as requested by Alice, here are a few pics of what we've been up to lately.



For a little change of pace and in an effort to escape that unbelievable heat, we went to the fountains this week. Spencer is obsessed with snowcones [favorite flavor: Wolverine...(?)] which they didn't have so we settled for raspberry daquiri. Jake also enjoyed some leftover Cheetos - ...that would be "left over" on the cement from strangers sitting by us after they got up and left.


Jake is trying his best to earn an spot in a picture. It's hard to do.

Evidently, Ava likes corn. We're happy with anything at this point since she doesn't seem to have hunger pangs. Rather, I'm pretty sure the problem is that she's been teething all four molars, bleeding gums and all, for weeks now. Ugh. Help. It's like she's three months old, waking up at night, bottles only, etc.
Spencer's tooth tally is moving along. The big guns have fallen out and he's very proud. I think he's hoping he'll miraculously catch up to Zach - in almost anything.

Here is my latest project, my favorite thing to walk by each day - a bit annoying, as well as complimentary, that two people who saw it promptly did the same in their homes. (One of these did one better and put a couple color pics here and there - even better.) It's addicting, however, since I am now eyeing prospects on other walls. If I didn't have kids, I would find a wall and cover it floor to ceiling. I love it for the fact that I can change the pics whenever I want without guilt or almost any $ or scrap the whole thing when I'm tired of it.

love the wall janelle-jaime here--so are they the open frames or something, what are you using? love it too! That's the price you pay for being creative--copycats!

Sadly-we are never in UT, and definitely never near an IKEA, so that it's just sad news all over!
And I am sure you are never in VA...

The wall thing is very cute, but if you didn't have kids, what would you take pictures of? Jan, I AM very grateful it wasn't urine. I might have thrown up a little bit if it was. Your little Ava is like a dolly. I enjoy looking at Spencer's teeth and imagining your dad inspecting them. Ah, memories/.

The exclusive family in Utah thing is unfortunate. I remember it well. Doesn't your husband's family all live in Utah and you can be exclusive with them?

I am the most popular girl on your comments. The rogue gift thing was hilarious and you should blog more because I want to read more. Begin by blogging about Family Exclusivity in Utah. Everyone here has an opinion and we want to hear more about yours.

Hi Jannie, those are very cute pics of your kids and thanks for reading my blog too! Now tell Jocie she is a bad friend and sister for not reading our blogs. She cannot be in our club. Harumph. I am annoying exclusive family in CA. All my friends get together on Sundays and I'm stuck with the family- everyone- Norie, Ellie, Val, Phil, Nate, Cam, and even Celia drives over when she wants to swim and not cook.

Dear Janelle, we are wondering where you went and would like some more entries. What, do you have a life or something? This entry is good and all, but over a week old.

Helloooooo, Jan, where are you? We miss you.
