4 of my Favorite People!!

They can drive me crazy, but I have never loved anyone so much! They are so fun and make me want to be better!

Scarlett is my very emotional girl.
Hawley is my little attitude girl.
Tyda is my mellow and precious baby.
And Dan is my best friend!

Who could ask for anything more? Not me!


"According to urban legend, the mullet dates back to the 19th century, when mullet fishermen wore their hair long in the back to keep warm.
"In the 2000s, a number of web sites sprung up with photographs of people with mullets, often accompanied by mocking comments based on stereotypes of mullet-wearers. Jeff Tremaine had his hair mulletted à la Billy Ray Cyrus in a black barber shop during the first season of Jackass. The mullet and its associated lifestyle were central themes in movies such as FUBAR: The Movie and Joe Dirt... Despite its reputation, the mullet remains a moderately popular hairstyle among certain social groups in various Western countries.[citation needed] It is especially popular and even considered to be modern (vintage retro) in Spain and can be widely identified in the streets of cities like Barcelona...
"Johnny Vaughan declared that Germans, Americans, Australians, these are the real mullet men."

What are up with mullets? I don't know why people (guys especially) do this to themselves. Is there something sexy about them that I don't know about? I don't think so, but I do know that even though this style is associated with a certain stereotype, I think that she is quite a cutie. Even with her mullet...

Our Saturday

Saturday was sort of a busy one. We didn't just sit around and relax this week, we had stuff to do, people to see. We were up early to help clean the church. After that we got ready for my brother's wedding. We had to run and get a few things before we could go to that, but we finally made it. The girls were flower girls and they were so excited to be able to do it. Thanks Ryan and Emma for including them. It was nice afternoon and it was good to have everyone there. Congrats Ryan! I love you!

After that we went to Harley Davidson and ate at their restaurant. It was pretty good food, so I'm sure we will eat there again some day. Hawley got to go for a ride on one of the bikes in the shop and she loved it. I wasn't there, so I wasn't able to take any pictures.

Then we went to Jenna's and hung out there for a while. The girls love going over there. I'm sure if they could they would go every day. After that we came home and changed and then went to Costco with some of the family. Of course you all probably know how crazy that store is on a Saturday. Chaos. By the time we were done it was just about dinner time, so we came home, ate, put the kids to bed, and watched a movie. What a day!

The cold has been going around our home and right now I am not feeling the best. I'm pretty sure that Tyda is going to get it cause the girls can't stay out of her face. This morning Hawley decided that she was going to cough right in her face. Nice.

Tyda turned 6 months yesterday! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. We have so much fun with her and she is such a mellow little baby. Some of the things she does throughout her day includes: Spitting. I think it is her favorite thing to do right now (video below). Eating. She is sort of eating solid foods, but that is a work in progress. Rolling over. She rolls over to her belly and then cries because she doesn't really like it there and she can't get back to her back. Watching the girls. She loves to be in the same room with the girls and I'm sure she wishes that she could get up and go play with them. Sucking her 2 fingers. She loves her first two fingers on her right hand more and more every day. She is such a joy and I love her so much. I'm so grateful to have her in our family.

For some reason the girls love to hang off of our coffee table. They (Scarlett especially) will do this all afternoon. Here is a video of them passing a book back and forth.

I am excited for the end of February. We are going to Mexico again and I am so ready to get away. We are going for a full week this time and we are going to just relax and enjoy the nice warm weather. I'm also excited that we will be able to see Ali. She is in Phoenix and that is right on our way.

Well I wouldn't say that she thought it was all that wonderful, but she did end up eating some of it.

She did really well eating the first few days and then she decided that she wanted nothing to do with it (it is Rice). I think that I am going to buy something that has some taste and try again.

I also had her have her very first ponytail. I think that she looks pretty cute, even with her little mullet she has going on! Sorry it is kinda hard to see the ponytail.

3 Years Old

I can not believe that the girls are already 3. They are just so big and getting funner every day! Saturday we had a party for them. Most of my family was there and some of Dan's. That was a lot of fun. Yesterday was their actual birthday, so Dan and I ordered some pizza (requested by the girls) and then we opened more gifts. They were extremely spoiled this year. Then we just played with some games they got and Dan and I had fun watching them.
I made a castle cake for their party and then for their actual birthday I made sugar cookies (they weren't the best cookies. I don't know if I left any ingredient out or not, but I wish that I could just make something that is wonderfully delicious. I am not having very good luck with my cooking lately.)

They are very protective over their new things and they don't want Zoey to play with anything. I have had the biggest headache today trying to stop kids from fighting. I'm not very good at keeping peace in our home today.
Now if they would just potty train I would be the happiest mom in the world!

Santa brought the girls some fingerpaints and we used them the other day to paint something for Nana and Papa. They were so funny! At first they used only one color and then they decided that they wanted to get all the colors on their hands. Scarlett was the funniest. She would get the paint on her hands and then scream in excitement. Zoey was alright with the paint being on one finger, but once she got the paint on her whole hand, she freaked out and started crying. We had to wash her hands and then she just watched the girls paint and talked the whole time. This video is kinda long (3 min), but I think it is a cute clip.

This is a cute little clip of Scarlett and Hawley boxing with the Wii. Scarlett is totally getting into it, but Hawley is the one that ended up winning!
