Family photos

Well we got family photos with Mike's fam when we went back to Utah in March. I don't look good in any of them. I keep telling myself I just had a baby but for some reason the pictures don't look any better after that. haha. Oh well the sacrifices we make for our little ones. I love the girls they look great in the photos. Especially the one of Zoe pouting in the cousin photo (I couldnt find it to add). Isa is as cute as ever with her big open mouth. I expect you all to now leave a comment and lie to me and tell me I dont look bad I loot great!

Little Steam Roller

Well its official our little chunker is on the move. She has rolled over now three times and I am certain this is only the beginning. It was a lot of fun to watch her to struggle and then finally accomplish it. She was so excited when she finally rolled over!!

I Pity The Fool!

So here is my woe is me statement. This weekend we had stake conference in Bismarck (for all the non LDS people that is a more general meeting of church with more people from surrounding cities). Anyway Mike was obviously supposed to come with me because we were staying Saturday night and coming home Sunday. Wouldn't ya know it at 4:00 in the morning on Saturday Mike got a call that someone had base in his squadron had just gotten a DUI and they all had to report in by 5:30 AM. When he got there he was informed that they would not be able to leave the local area or drink (we dont) until otherwise told. Lucky for me I trucked two kids to Bismarck without my husband and it was a lot of work. So now you must be wondering why I love the military ... and the answer is ... ME TOO!! I still love them but I don't have to like them right now! haha. Welp I guess I better get used to them changing our schedule at a moments notice because its sure to happen again.

This one is for all you moms of little girls. When the time comes that you have to decide at what age should we start wearing makeup, we believe we have found the answer...TWO!

As you can see demonstrated in the pictures above your best bet is to go with a royal blue mascara so as not to alarm anyone. This can most likely be found in one of your aunts old dressers in her room.

Also try and concentrate the mascara around the eyes, cheeks, lips, forearm and shin so you can maximize your beauty.

If this happens to wear you out, and it will because it does take a lot of work to look this beautiful, feel free to get some beauty rest.

Any questions, good!!

The Halls Conform

Well for all of you bloggers out there just thought we would say you finally got us. We have finally put our lives back together enough to start a blog after baby number two!!! I know I know everyone has kids but let me tell ya its harder than it looks. So here is our quick recap to get ya caught up with family.

Mike is currently a missileer and we are stationed in "sunny" North Dakota. He is loving his job so far. They heard he knows a little about computers so he is also the exec to the commander and the computer systems analyst for his squadron. All of this is really just code for "he is never home"!!!!! He currently has a million projects going on in our new house which include, finishing the down stairs, changing out all the doors and frames, building cement flower boxes and repaving the driveway. Thats right this man can do it all!

I am currently just flat out crazy. I have decided that all these women who have their kids close together are just flat out insane. I must not be cut out for it but I am sure giving it my best. between changing bums, wiping noses, taking care of church stuff, cooking, cleaning, and oh yes working as the foreman under our general contractor Mike my time is well spent. I did manage to sucker a tred mill out of Mike this week so I can finally start getting back in shape after the baby.

Zoe is as crazy as ever and growing by the minute. She will be two and a half in June and can't wait for her summer party with all her new friends. She loves our house but most of all our new car. Every morning she wakes up and says "bye bye in new car". She also is the queen of shopping. It doesn't matter what you are shopping for she will grab a hanger and say "look mommy its cute" or "look mommy its pretty". But the funniest thing of all is when she says "oh no, look mommy, a snake" and she points to a string or a hair on her hand. We like to think she is the smartest girl out there. She has now mastered her ABC's, numbers, colors and shapes. I guess we'll start with algebra now. haha. Her adventure and enthusiasm for life is amazing. Watch out boys here she comes.

Isa is one sweet babe. I love this kid to pieces she is so dang cute. I didn't know you could enjoy a baby so much when they do absolutely nothing but believe me you can. She loves to giggle and take in the scene. She is as chunky as they come. In fact the other day I bought her some 6-12 month jeans to wear now at 4 months and sure enough I couldn't get them over her junk in the trunk. hehe. I can't wait to see her personality come out even more.

Well thats all for now hopefully I will be as good as the rest of you at updating my blog. keep checking you might just get lucky!!!
