Quick update

I have been awful in blogging as of late! So just to give you a quick update...

Troy is now 14 months old. Walking everywhere... climbing everywhere and getting into EVERYTHING!!! He loves to just play! He loves to play with trucks, basketballs, footballs and bouncy balls. He it just all boy and I love it! He knows how to say Mom, Dad and will say another word here and there but other than Mom and Dad he just really doesn't feel the need to talk...

Abbigail is 3 years old now and is as cute as a button. She still LOVES (understatement) to suck her thumb. We'll be lucky if she stops sucking her thumb by the time she goes to school... She's very independent and likes to do everything on her own if she can. She dresses herself, feeds herself and gets into everything and doesn't listen at all! She is very much our drama queen and we love her to pieces. I don't think there is anything Abbie (as she likes to be called) can't say or express. She's still a tiny little thing running around in size 2 clothes and can still fit into Troy's diapers... We're currently attempting potty training and I think as soon as I can really spend the time at home and focus on it I really do think she would be potty trained but for now she's wearing "big girls" (potty training diapers). I will admit that she's not afraid of the toilet and has no problems just sit there until she feels like she's ready to get down. Another funny thing about Abbie is she loves to play favorites. She's very much a mommy's girl until I don't give her the answer she wants and then she usually tells you "She's not talking to me" and will go off and ask her daddy who is now her new favorite person for the same thing and daddy will cave depending on what it is.. She's just too funny...

Allison is now 6 years old and boy has the time just flown by with this little beauty.. I can't believe that my baby is now 6 years old... Allison has finished kindergarten and LOVED it! Her teacher was Mrs. Coral Werner who lives within our stake boundaries and loves seeing her at church on Sunday's. She's made tons of new friends through kindergarten and loves talking about them all the time (Vanessa, Serena where her two best friends in class) She did have 1 crush in kindergarten and his name was Jason. I can't tell you how many stories I've heard about him and how he has crushed my little girls heart when she heard that he was now crushing on a new little girl in their class. Even though school is now over she still does talk about his and how cute he is... Funny little girl.. I think I'm in trouble if this is how she is in Kindergarten.. ha ha... Allison has also been taking voice lessons and has been doing really well with that. They've learned a bunch of new songs and are hoping to either get her in a play or have her start singing in church or in public to build confidence. Allison also took dance this past year and studied ballet and tap. She loved both and just had her last class for the year this past week. They also had their dance recital this past Friday and Saturday and Kyle, myself, Abbigail, Grandma and Grandpa Ellsworth, Aunt Karly, Uncle Eric, Cousin Nick and Brandon were able to attend. She was a cute little paper doll in her tap show on Friday and was a beautiful butterfly in swan lake on Saturday. She did beautifully... I'm actually really sad that she's done with dance as it really was fun to watch her every week... Allison loves anything crafty and loves to play outside ride her bike and play with her friends. Allison is most definitely my social butterfly and has no problems making friends and just playing with everyone.

Kyle and I have been very busy updating the house.
