Elizabeth is six months old! I can't believe she has been in our family for half a year. She has grown so much and is doing new things every day.
We went to Monica's house the other day to let the kids play. She was nice enough to do a quick, unplanned photo session of Lizzie. We started with both Lizzie and Ali -but she got tired and went down for a nap. She got so many adorable pictures of Lizzie but here are a few of my favorite.
|I love that smile!|
|Both the girls were sad and grumpy, but it's still so cute! These girls are the cutest in the world!|
|These next few shots are when she gets nervous, scared and then starts crying. It's so funny to see her facial expressions change so quickly!|
|These babies are pretty moody, now she's all happy again. She just wanted her dress and headband off!|
|Thanks so much Monica! I really appreciate your taking her pictures.|
I want to capture her at every stage because she is growing so fast!

We just got back from an amazing weekend in beautiful Jackson Hole. We stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Deppe in their timeshare at the Teton Club. It was in the Teton Village at the base of the huge, amazing Teton Mountains.
We had tons of fun and the scenery was breathtaking and so gorgeous! We spent our time hiking, hot tubbing, riding the tram to the top of the mountain, fishing, eating out, relaxing and spending time with G& G Deppe!
We took tons of pictures because it was so fabulous, so here are a few of our favorites.
|Taylor and Lizzie had fun playing on the slides at the playground where we stayed. Elizabeth thinks Taylor is so funny lately. She laughs whenever he comes around, it's so cute.|
|Lizzie did pretty good on the drive. She is such a sweet, mellow baby. The only hard part was her sleeping at night. She woke up several times during the night which makes for one tired mama! Oh well, who needs sleep, right?!|
|One afternoon while Isaac and Lizzie were napping we took the tram to the top of the mountain. It was an amazing climb of 4400 feet and the elevation at the top of the mountain was 10,400. I got a little nervous going up, because we were so high above the ground. Taylor and Emily loved it, they had the time of their lives!|
|I actually got a few pics. of Taylor, one with Nutella all over his face and the other he has magnetic rocks on his ears. Such a cute boy and growing up too fast!|
|These pictures do not do justice to how gorgeous the mountains are. It was SO beautiful and such a fantastic day!|
|We love spending time with Grandma and Grandpa Deppe. We miss living near them and always have so much fun when we see them! The trip was so perfect and we had a fabulous time!|
|It was the perfect way to end the summer. Now off to do laundry and get back into the real world! We have had the best summer, and I wish it would last forever. |
School starts tomorrow!
|During the day everyone played on the slide and ate! We ordered pizza for lunch, made popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones etc... Then for dinner everyone on the street had a big BBQ complete with homemade ice-cream!|
|Isaac earned his "Shiver Shack" by pretty much being totally potty trained! He is doing great, and I am so happy!|
|Go Natalie! I know you are thrilled about me posting this picture! HA HA!|
|It was such a fantastic day, everyone was exhuasted by dark, and ready for bed. We love our neighborhood and all of our friends and neighbors. We feel so blessed to live in such a great community!|

|We went swimming with Mono and her girls and Aunt Natalie last week. Elizabeth and Ali have the same swimming suit! It's so cute on their chubby little bodies!|

|This is a typical Lizzie face, covered in barf . We call her "Barf Face" a lot lately, because she is constantly throwing up or drooling. But it can't cover up her huge tootheless grin!|
Oh, hot I love to kiss those chubby cheeks.
|We went to the Gateway fountains one day this week. We met some friends and Grandma Shields, Mono, Becca, Natalie & Turner. We also brought our good friends Ryan & Zach, the kids had so much fun! |
Here are the few pictures I took.
|They all played in the fountains and got soaking wet, then they would dry out on the cement and then do it all over again. |
It was a blast!
