Last week

I really meant to do this post last week, but I was waiting to have pics to go with the post and didn't get many, so here goes. We had a pretty busy week last week.
Niamh had her 6 month checkup. She is now 17lbs. It's funny, her height and head circumference are in the 75-95 percentile, it must be the Abbott side :) Niamh is such a fun baby, she is really good and I rarely have bad days with her. She is so energetic and loves to laugh. Her latest thing is bopping her head whenever she hears music. She'll get really excited and start yelling, I think she is trying to sing along. She is such a joy to have in our home and is loved SO much.
Lucas and I got to go to the temple last Thursday thanks to my sister Beverley who watched the kids for us. It was so nice to get back to the temple. We've tried to go at least once a month. It's also a great date night.
On Friday, I went to Alamo with the kids to visit my mam and her husband, Malcolm. My mam has goats, chickens, ducks, and many cats at her place in Alamo. Some of her goats had babies a couple of weeks ago and one of the chickens had babies also. The boys were so excited to see the baby goats and chicks. The goats were seriously so cute. They were so tiny and were trying to jump up on my legs. They would run and leap like little lambs. The chicken had 11 little chicks running behind. It was awesome to watch how the mom chicken would run back to make sure the stragglers didn't get lost.

On Saturday I was able to have a girls night with my 3 sisters; Kim, Trudi & Beverley. We went to see the movie "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past." The movie was pretty good, a total chick flick. Then we went to Capriottis, where they make the best sandwiches in the world. It has been a while since all of us sisters could get together and catch up. We had a great time together.

On Sunday Lucas and I got a new calling, as Primary teachers. We are not sure what age group we will be teaching yet, but I think it's 9 year olds. We're excited for this new calling and it will be fun teaching together.

Its looks like you guys are staying busy and having so much fun. I am jealous you were able to go out with all your sisters. I miss mine too much and hate being so far away.

You look great! I miss you so much!
It's good hear that you and Lucas had some alone time at the Temple.
Niamh looks great! She's only a few lbs behind my chunky girl! LOL!

Good luck on your new calling!

Wow! You and your sisters look so much alike! You are all very beautiful! Niamh MUST take after her moms side. No offense Lucas! I heard once that all the movie stars have big heads. That's why I have never worried when my kids come out with the 95% for their heads. hahaha...

Also, how cute are those tiny goats?? I never would have pictured them so small. Just not one of those things I have ever thought of.
