While Jaydn was fishing in the river...

While Jaydn was fishing in the river the girls became a bit board. I decided to try to capture the moment of them goofing off.

I love moments like this. Not told to pose but voluntary. Olivia (left) and Madalyn (right).

They were trying to pick eachother up and I requested they look my direction.

So this is somewhat a pose picture. Olivia (left) and Madalyn (right).

They often get so giggly with eachother. It can be so funny and at times a bit annoying.

Woops Madalyn dropped Olivia. Twin girls are awesome to have. I pray they stay close and do not get too difficult in their teenage years.

Fishing at the park.

The Kiwanis club has a pancake breakfast before the fishing begins. It is nice because that means I do not have to make breakfast.

Jaydn absolutely loves to fish. His face lit up when he got a bite and then he lost the fish. The next bite he caught this little one. He was super excited until he realized that his fish was the smallest. He is a bit competitive. Just like his parents :)

Olivia caught the biggest fish. She was thrilled. She loves to fish just like her siblings. Too bad we don't have this kind of luck everytime we fish.

Madalyn got a pretty decent size fish and was brave about holding it this year. Last year if it got floppy it really freaked her out and she would drop it. This year she just giggled. Good job Madalyn.

Gabriella loved the experience of fishing. The fish was pretty floppy and she would put it on the ground to try to get away from it but then with her other hand she was still holding on to the rope so when she tried to get away from it, it would follow her because she would not let go of the rope. It was so funny.

Everyone caught a fish. Olivia's was the biggest. Jaydn wanted to trade her. Jaydn loves to fish and his is the smallest so he was a bit disapointed about that.

Preschool Graduation

I can not believe my little girlies have finished preschool and are ready to start Kindergarten. I will admit the first year of their life was one of the longest I will ever remember. After that first year time flew by so quickly. I feel so blessed that they re both healthy happy little girls. There was a time when we wondered if they would be ok. Heavenly Father has blessed us with some amazing twins. They are typically mild in temper and are really good listeners. This past year in preschool they really started to shine as individuals.

Olivia's teacher said this about her....
"Olivia is a great singer and full of fun! She is exicited to be at school and learn. She can usually be found doing her favorite things at school... coloring painting, or cutting art projects. She works carefully and does her best. Outside, Olivia enjoys the swings, riding bikes, and scooters, and playing with friends. Her favorite color is blue. When she grows up, Olivia wants to be a mom." Lilly really has been trying very hard to learn how to write her letters and learn to read. She knows how to write everyone in our families name. She has expressed a huge interest in learning how to read working on reading so that is what we are working on right now. She is my carefree little girl. She is willing to try whatever and succeed at it. We are so grateful that she is part of our family.

Madalyn's teacher said this about her...

Madalyn's happiness bubbles over to those around her. She is ready for fun at school! She also likes to challenge herself. She sees something that she wants to try or do and she keeps practicing until she can do it! Maddy's favorite things to do are keytime activities and riding bikes & scooters. Her favorite colors are yellow and orange. When she gorws up, Maddy wants to be a mom and play with her kids."
Madalyn does not want to be left behind so she will do what it takes to keep up or create an new agenda. She loves to have friends and lead them along the way. She truly wants to do what is best and what will keep her out of trouble. I love that she wanted to cut her hair and that she loves it being short. We are so grateful that she is part of our family.

Waiting for graduation to start.

WE LOVE MRS.JAGODA. We were so blessed to have Mrs. Jagoda as their first teacher. She was the perfect fit for Olivia and Madalyn for several reasons. Here are just of few of them...

1. She is an identical twin so all year long she did her best to tell the twins apart and succeeded at it. The first person outside of our family to be able to tell them apart. She new them apart before we cut Madalyn's hair. We love that she actually tried.

2. Her calm patient manner was what my little tender hearted girlies needed.

3. She is grandma's best friend and there is definately a plus to that.

4. Her values in and out of the classroom, and on, and on, and on.

Thank you Mrs. Jagoda!!!!!!

This is Mr.Duggins. She is the teachers aid. She did all the busy work. Thanks for keeping the class so organized and for all the fun projects.

Madalyn and Olivia waiting so patiently as all the names were called.
