Hair

We almost had another fun hair episode. Remember this?
I finally got up the nerve to let the girls go with their little animal scissors they got for Christmas. I warned them before that they are only for the paper in front of them and if I saw them using them for anything else, they would be taken away. They did very well cutting and making nice little confetti everywhere. They were almost done with their paper and I look over and Jo Jo was trying to chop off her hair. Luckily the scissors didn't do the job! She got them taken away and started to cry because she wasn't actually done cutting her paper. We talked about the rules and then she wouldn't help pick up all the paper and so she got put into timeout where she cried even harder. Oh boy! This little girl tries my patience like no one else. Well at least if she would have cut her hair, we already know that she is super cute with her hair short. Although it wouldn't have been that short since she was only cutting about to her shoulders!

Then there is little miss Annie. She LOVES to twirl her finger in her hair. The other day she started to cry a little bit and we realize that her WHOLE hand is stuck in her hair.


I have no idea how she got it all stuck, but she somehow managed. Dan was the one to try to untangle it and had a somewhat hard time getting it out. It was so funny!

Mt. Charleston

We took a little drive up to Mt. Charleston yesterday. It is pretty cool how it is complete desert and then you are in the mountains. There was actually a good amount of snow that we didn't really get to play too much in, because the girls' snow pants and coats have been lost. We did throw a few snowballs, walked around, almost got stuck and enjoyed the scenery. We went up to the ski park and had the girls watch the kids learn on the bunny hill. We told them that we will take them up next year and have them learn. That will be a funny site to see since they don't EVER want to try anything new!


We then stopped by Chilis to have some lunch and boy was Ty on one. At one point she didn't want anyone to touch the ketchup and so she just held it close to her and had her face on it. She is so dramatic...


and cranky!

Well Check

All three crazies had a Dr. appointment today. The girls were happy. I had told them what the Dr. was going to do and that they might get shots. Things were going well.
They got weighed.
They got measured.
They had a good time waiting for the Dr.



They are very healthy!


They are small for their age. But that is not new news. They have always been small.
The twins are about in the 20%.
Ty is in the 50%.
Then the nurse came back in.
Annie (SB) went first.
She was extremely brave.
I told her to sing and I held both her hands.
She sang "I am a Child of God."
She wanted to so bad, but she didn't cry at all.
Jo Jo went next and had seen the whole thing.
She was tense the second she was on the table.
She cried a little bit.
Ty was the last and boy does that girl know how to make you feel awful.
Even when she gets hurt her cry doesn't measure up to the cry she belts out when she gets shots.
The crazies got suckers and stickers.
And medicine.
And they are still whining like babies.
Especially Jo Jo.

Our Fun Vacation

We had a baptism to go to this past weekend and so I decided to take the girls and go up a week early. We met up with my parents in St. George and hung out with Grammy and my Aunt and Uncle for a bit and then headed up to Delta. I'm sad her eyes were closed in this picture. Oh how I love this wonderful lady!!


Even Ty realized how wonderful she is.


4 Generations.


On Monday we had a late birthday party for the girls. They were so excited that Auntie Shai made them a cake and that they were going to get presents. Thank you guys for throwing them a party! It made their day!






Tuesday we headed up to Orem to stay at Jenna's. It happened to be her birthday and so we went to Jump On It. I think Jenna had more fun than the girls. Everyone loved it!

Wednesday we had a girls day. It was a lot of fun and I'm glad that I got to see and hang out with everyone.



Thursday we went up to Ikea and shopped around there for awhile. I'm sad that there isn't one here in Vegas.


This is how Ty spent a lot of her time.


Dan came up Friday and we had the baptism on Saturday. It was such a special day and I'm glad that we were able to be there to be a part of it. It was fun to be able to hang out with Dan's family.




It was a great week and I'm glad that I was able to do it. I am so blessed to have family that I love and that I want to be with.
