New Look!

Scarlett in the closet with the scissors!

At least they look gorgeous with short hair, or I would be in trouble!

Stinking Crazies!

And you thought that you were going to be able to tell them apart. Well not anymore!

Tea Party Time

Dan had a fun time playing tea party with our little crazies yesterday. Instead of tea they drank chocolate milk, so I'm not sure why they called it a tea party, but whatever. Dan is such a good daddy and the crazies love him tremendously!

Well Tyda decided to get her first black eye this afternoon. She was sitting on the ground playing and was trying to reach her swing. She fell and hit her eye on the medal stand. The 5 seconds it took me to walk from the kitchen to where she was it had already turned black. My poor Tyda girl.

The pics don't show it very well, but you can kinda see it.

Weekend Fun Update

So it really sucks that it is snowing and freezing again!!! Last week was so much fun being able to go outside and play and BBQ and enjoy the nice weather. The girls were way excited because they weren't prisoners in their home anymore. Here are a couple pics of a wagon ride we took.

I got called into work Saturday morning, so I ended up wearing a hat. When I got home the girls wanted to wear their hats, so we took a couple pics of them being cool. Scarlett wouldn't put her hat on all the way.

Dan needed to wear a hat as well.

We also went to Cold Stone and got some YUMMY ice cream with the Dobson's.

A Kiss

There is something special about a kiss on the lips with the one you love. When that has been absent for a while and you finally get the chance to lay one on them, it's almost like a first kiss all over again. Not quite, but close enough.
For the past week I have had two cold sores (I guess that is the way that my body has started telling me that I am stressing--stupid) and I am a freak about cold sores. I don't like anybody to touch my lips, because I don't want them to have the possibility of getting the stupid things. So when they finally started to disappear it was awesome to be able to kiss Dan again. I guess that is one thing that we, no I, might take for granted.

30 Years!

March 16, 1979 is the year that my man, Dan, was born. It has been 30 years since then and I made sure that he had a memorable birthday. Saturday I took him to buy a shirt and then to get a massage. While he was getting his massage I went and starting decorating for his next surprise. When I picked him up, I blindfolded him and lead him to the party. His wonderful parents drove 10 hours to be there (Thank you guys!!!) and there were lots of other friends and family that came to surprise him. We had a BBQ and let the kids play on the playground. It was a fun time.

Monday (his birthday) we slept in, made breakfast, went out to eat with his parents and sister before they went home, went to Color Me Mine (I love that place), got rid of the kids for a bit to do some shopping and had another little get together with the Dobson's and Sarah with dinner, dessert and presents. It was a good day. I just hope that Dan had just as much fun. He didn't want me to make it a big deal because he was sad that he wasn't going to be in his 20's anymore, but how can you pass up your 30th birthday??

Thanks to everyone who came! I do appreciate you all. And to you Dan, I love you so incredibly much and I hope that you had an awesome weekend. I'm glad that you were born 30 years ago!

New Dresses

When we went to do our grocery shopping the other day I saw a couple of dresses that were so adorable. They were only $6, so I just had to buy them. This is Scarlett and Hawley before church on Sunday. What cuties!! They are so springy. Can't wait for the warm weather to get here and STAY!!

Potty Training and Crabs

No the girls didn't get crabs from potty training, but they did get some crabs for doing good at going potty in the toilet. A couple of days ago I was washing the seashells that we got in Mexico there were a couple of crabs that were still alive. We put them into some water, but they ended up dying. The girls absolutely hated the crabs at first, but by the end of the night they loved them. When they woke up the next morning and they were missing they kept asking all day long where their crabs were. When I told them they died and we threw them away, they told Dan not to throw them away. So Dan went out and bought them a couple of hermit crabs. Hawley named hers Crabbie and Scarlett named hers Hermie. Scarlett is still a little bit scared when they decide to come out of their shells, but she is getting better. Hawley loves them. Actually I think Dan is the most excited to have them as pets. He will just sit and watch them for the longest time and he is always playing with them. Maybe he should have bought one for himself as well. Oh and the girls are doing awesome potty training. Finally! They have only had a couple of accidents. I never thought that this day would come. Scarlett even woke me up last night saying that she needed to go potty. Keep up the good work girls!!

1st Hair Cut

I know Shai and Cade will be ecstatic when they see this. It was a little difficult for me to do, after all it's my little baby's hair. Before we went to Mexico I decided to just get it done with and I put Tyda's cute little mullet into a ponytail and chopped it off. I cut a good inch and a half off. It's just a little crazy because I didn't cut Scarlett and Hawley's hair until they were about 1 1/2 or so and Tyda is only 7 months.

She is still my beautiful little girl, but now I don't have much to play with.

I know that it has taken a while, but here is our vacation...

We drove 10 hours to Phoenix and visited Ali and saw where she is living and then we went to Mesa to stay the night at my Uncle Gary's house.

We found the dress ups at my Uncles house and decided to try some things out! I'm thinking about going blue for real! :)

The next morning we had some delicious breakfast (Thanks Aunt Patty is was wonderful!!) and we headed out for Mexico. About 4 hours later we were on the beach.
We had a very relaxing and fun time finding seashells, riding the 4-wheelers, playing games, swimming in the ocean and the pools, shopping and just relaxing. There is going to be a lot of pics, but it is hard to pick a few from the 400+ pictures that we all took.

The girls all got their hair braided, which was wonderful for me since I didn't need to do their hair.

This is just outside the bakery that we went to just about everyday.

The sunsets were beautiful!

The new dresses that we got for the girls.

One of the days while we were looking for seashells, we found a crab. Well all I need to say is that the girls didn't like it one bit.

What a wonderful vacation we had in Mexico. We left last Wednesday and came home yesterday. It was so heavenly! Although it really is quite ridiculous that we had to come home to snow. What is that all about?
I just wanted you all to know that we are alive and well and I will be posting pics of our fabulous vacation soon. Until then have a fantastic day and be happy!
