Built in Playmate

I've been told twins become easier as they get older because they play with each other instead of you entertaining them. I don't know about this. You be the judge....

The video and picture were taken on their half birthday!

The last 2 months

I decided after my last post that I hated blogging and I was never going to blog again. Haha, sometimes I can be such a teenage girl. I know where Isabella got her drama queen personality. But really I do hate to blog, but I like to read other blogs, so maybe others like to read my blog.

December started with Dallin starting a new job at Ancestory.com. He had been working there for several months as a contractor. They liked him so much that they "bought" him from the contracting company he was working for. He really likes it there and was very happy to make it permanent.

We went down to Texas for Christmas and guess who showed up on Christmas Eve!

Santa!!!!!!
Yes, I am looking at the wrong camera, Avery is screaming, and Dallin has his eyes closed. ehh...
My 6-year-old nephew was not fooled however. He knew is wasn't the real santa because "Grandpa was missing." It really was awesome. My dad really did a good job with all the hohoho's. I hope this becomes a tradition.

Christmas morning was a free-for-all.

At first Isabella wasn't sure what to think of all the excitement.

But eventually she came around.
As always, Avery was just happy to be alive
New Years Eve was spent in Texas as well. To welcome in the new year we decided to play a scandalous game of "truth or dare" minus the truth part. I'll spare you all the details, but lets just say Jared ended the night with an asphalt scrape on his butt, dallin had permanant marker on his chest for days, and Preston may not eat peanut butter ever again.

Of course the best part of the trip was spending time with these people!

My insanely cute nephew Bryce was a champion bowler.

All the Neeley's managed to spend an afternoon rollerskating without any broken bones. That's pretty good considering our history with the sport.
Me, sisters Jenna, Heather, Rebecca, Rachel, and brother Jared

Avery and Isabella got so much attention they didn't know what to do with themselves.

And of course I got to hang out with these cute kids which always makes me happy

We got back to Utah and spent the next week in depression trying to get used to the snow. blah...

The girls turn 6 months in 6 days! Wow, I can't believe it has been that long!
