Our New Pets

Mike and I have been wanting to get Caden and Livvy a pet for a long time now but we didn't know what to get them because we can't have animals in our apartment. So the other day we were at a flea market and found these little tiny turtles. The were so cute. They are about the size of an oreo cookie. So we decided to get one for Caden and another for Olivia. We found an old fish tank and bought some turtle food and put them in their new home and they seemed very happy. So the next day we were in Idaho Falls and decided to stop at petco and make sure we were doing everything right. Anyway, come to find out we needed to spend around $300 in equipment to give them everything they need. We didn't know what to do we only paid $20 for both the stupid turtles. And on top of everything else the man told us turtles that small are illeagal in the United States! In the end we bought a new tank and some other things but only spent $100 Hopefully they don't die!

Our New Home

YES!!! We finally found a house! We don't get to move in for a little over a month but we are very excited. I honestly didn't think we were ever going to find something that was going to work but the way it happened I know it must have been fate. We were out with our realtor (who is my aunt) and my cousin Whitney was with us and she happened to mention her friend that was thinking about selling her house and we were in the neighborhood so we decided to go take a look. As soon as I looked at the house I new it was the one. It has everything I wanted in a house and more! She is super super clean and moving into it will be like moving into a bran new house. The neighborhood is really cute. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs with an unfinished basement. And the laundry room is upstairs (which is apparently not very common because its the one out of all the houses we looked at.) So after showing our parents we felt sure it was the one so we made an offer and they accepted! I am very excited about owning our dream home but I am a little sad about leaving Rexburg. I know that sounds silly because it is only 30 min away. But you have to realize that I am a big time homebody. And I don't know anyone that lives in Idaho Falls exept my cousins. But I'm sure I will make friends and get used to it. But I am so excited about our new adventure and I know its the right thing to do and I can't wait to see what the future brings!

Livvy's Milestones

I just wanted to do a post on how fast livvy is growing up it makes me so sad! Everyone keeps telling me she looks more like a toddler than a baby now.

Some of the things she has accomplished in the last few months are:

Sitting up on her own

Waving hi and bye

Can pick up little cherios and put them in her mouth

Screams at her brother when he takes her toys

Only wakes up once during the night (this is much better than her usual 6 or 7!)

I can put a little ponytail on the top of her head

I know that babies grow up, but does it have to be so fast!
