Away

So we have been without internet since the end of June...as you can see by the last post I did it was around that timeframe. 

Well we are still working on getting that back. However, I do have a program on my phone now that I can use to do some posting.

I hope I can utilize it correctly, if anyone has any suggestions on the blogger app for android let me know!!

But to get up to speed...Sarah is doing great she loves her little sister to pieces!  In the morning she would much rather have Kahlan wake her up then mommy ....

Kahlan is crawling and getting into everything! Her little teeth are having a hard time breaking through, but they are about there. She says Momma when she is upset and is starting to like daddy more. Oh and she can fall asleep anywhere...highchair is a favorite, the other day it was the grocery cart.

Zach is working hard and going to school.  Keeping busy for now,which keeps him going.

As for me I'm still working and being Mommy which is hard but worthwhile!  I hope to get more posts in soon .... here are some pictures to enjoy.

Thrush

Thrush is a yeast infection that causes white patches in the mouth and on the tongue. Thrush is most common in babies and older adults, but it can occur at any age. Well now that we have the definition out of the way...guess what both of my babies ended up with Thrush. I don't know why, but my guess is because they both like to spit up a lot!
But the stuff that we had to use to get rid of this is called Gentian Violet....this stuff turns everything PURPLE! It is funny and well you can't help take funny pictures of the kids with bright purple mouths...he he he.

Gotta love that purple mouth...Sarah 2008

Okay I know what you are thinking...no we really didn't let her eat a pen it just looks like that because of the purple stuff in her mouth... he he he

I'm going to eat this pen Mom & Dad!!

Kahlan with Thrush 2011

Mom this pen tasted sooooo good...
I know once we did it with Sarah we had to do the same thing with Kahlan.

Sarah wanted to help feed Kahlan the pen...
As you can see the stuff gets everywhere! And to boot, if they spit up on you shortly after you put that in their mouth...yup you are purple also. But one good thing is it gets rid of the Thrush! Plus we get to have these funny pictures of our babies with bright purple mouths...

Kahlan's first try at cereal

Well Kahlan is growing up so fast, she is 5 months old now, but last month we started feeding her cereal. I know it is always a big milestone when you get to start feeding them stuff other than breast milk...but anyhow Kahlan loves it! I don't recall Sarah being this excited about cereal. But I will get finished feeding her the cereal and she gets upset because she wants more. She is too funny! But after that first time feeding her the cereal, Sarah went and got her baby and had to do the same thing. It was precious!! We have graduated from the bouncy chair to the high chair the past couple of weeks. So just maybe she will get to eat more than just cereal soon.

Here you go baby... :) awww so cute!

The Doctor is IN

So Zach always talks about the time he had his picture taken with his baby brother and he was playing doctor. Well we got a picture of Sarah doing the same thing with Kahlan. Whenever she brings the doctor play stuff out she has to check every one's hearts and give us all shots. Because that is what happens when she goes to the doctor...well the shots aren't all the time but she has a really good memory.
Zach 2 1/2 & Jeremy 6 months

Sarah checking Kahlan's heart to make sure she is okay :)

yup she has a heart


Kahlan just smiles at Sarah...so cute!
Today she was doing the same thing and it reminded me that I wanted to do this post a long time ago. But if any of you know the show "Dr Who" you will understand this next part. But Sarah will often say that she & Daddy have 2 hearts like Dr Who does. It amazes me what Sarah will come up with and I get excited to hear what she will come up with next! But one this for sure Miss Sarah loves her sister Kahlan!

Mother's Day

My Mother's Day was simple and I was able to spend time with my family. I got a couple of pictures with my girls and that is all I wanted. I love my girls and I am so happy they are mine. I have called my own mother many of times saying how much I admire her for taking 5 or more of us at a time. There are some days that I think my 2 are to much for me. So to my Mom..YOU ARE THE BEST! Thank you for your example and for everything that you have done for me all of my life. For the most important part...for having me and putting up with all the crap that I put you through!

Sarah pretending to be sad...:(

Sarah, me & Kahlan
Yes my eyes are closed, but I don't care I was happy!

I absolutely loved Sarah snuggled up to me like that!

This was another day, but it is another fun shot of us girls...crazy hair and all!


I hope I can be a great Mom to my girls and I hope they will always know how much they are loved! Isn't it great to be a Mom? I SAY YES!

Tulips

At the Lyle home we had a nice surprise this year! Well the home we are in currently has rock beds along the sides of the house. I don't think any of us expected to have flowers in our rock beds. Well when they started to pop out of the rock beds we thought oh my heck we have weeds...lol...nope we have some absolutely gorgeous Tulips! Sarah loves them, and has picked many of them to give to others and to have in the house. She is so proud of these flowers.

Our Tulips, we have a variety of colors also.


We have multi colored Tulips

Sarah with the Tulips...

One of the many shots that Zach got of the Tulips

I really like this picture as it shows how odd it was to have Tulips in the middle of all these rocks.

Road Trip

We went on a little road trip last month, it was very last minute and it was just Sarah, Kahlan and myself in the Jeep. I was hoping that the truck would make it all the way to Idaho Falls so we could spend the night at Rindee's house and go to church with them the next day. Well it did and made it back home surprisingly. But the pictures I got were from Sarah sleeping in the back while we were on the way home, and she had everything on her I think, from sunglasses that were to big, gloves, blanket, & jacket. I don't believe that it was that cold, but she was just having fun.

Sarah & Kahlan ready for church

My GIRLS!

As you can see she was nice and snuggled in there...


She changed positions, she put her leg up and well the sunglasses, well they are just having fun there!

We had a great time with Rindee & Family and thank goodness they let us come up last minute. It was great to see them all!

Weather Girl

Often when a storm is coming through you will see Zach outside looking at the clouds, or taking pictures of them. Our Sarah has grown to love the storms as well with her Daddy. She now has our old camera and will go out with Daddy and take pictures right along with him. I hope that she is as good as he is one day and loves it as much as he does (that is photography & storms).

The Storm

Taking her pictures of the clouds...


She has to get different angles and everything!

Once it started to rain we went inside to watch it...this is from her window in the toy room.

Gramma's Home from her mission

Well my Mom got home from her mission in late March and so these pictures are much overdue. But Sarah was so excited to see Gramma. She sure does love her Gramma! Ever since Gramma has been home Sarah, Kahlan & I have had the opportunity to spend some time with her every Wednesday for lunch. But these pictures are from way before our time the past few weeks. Welcome home Mom!!

Gramma & Kahlan first meet :)

Gramma is all about kisses...lots and lots of kisses. Sarah in her new dress that Gramma got for her.

Easter

We had a very eventful Easter this year, I think all together we had 2 mini Easter egg hunts and 1 very large one. So Sarah had a lot of candy to go through, and I believe it is now all gone! Yipee for sugar highs! So I have a lot of pictures of Easter so here we go....I know you love pictures!! Our first adventure was our play date with Isabel. I brought over some eggs with some candy in them and between Krystal and I we got them all hidden so they could find them. They had a great time!

As you can see we had a lot of fun, she didn't get the elaborate big gifts, but if you look below she did get a new dress for Easter and we all got to spend some time together.
