The hair cut

Girl#1 had hers at 6 months Girl#2 was 2 1/2 years old Girl#3 got her first hair cut at 13 months. Poor Girl#2 actually had a comeover for the longest time but this isn't about her :)

This is our family hair dresser, we love her we have been going to her for 5 years. Now you know you are friends with your hair dresser when you are invited to her wedding. anyway this isn't about her. :)

I think Daddy was more nervous then Girl#3.

With a sucker life is good...

All done and she looked so grown up.

I would walk 500 miles!!

Now I am going to have that song stuck in my head.

April 6 I announced to the world of Facebook that we had a walker. Then that little girl REFUSED to walk for over a week. Then on April 13th she stood up and walked. If she would have been my first I probably would have been worried that she was 15 months old and showing no signs of walking. But I knew she would do it on her time.

                    I love when they first start to walk. Their arms are out like they can't find their balance.

Then they master the walking and try to carry everything around with them.

But the best thing ever is the naked wrinkly bum!!!

I would let her walk around naked all the time except for the little puddles she leaves!?!

Life of A Cheerio

This morning at Breakfast Girl#1 said "In the world of Cheerios they don't want to be eaten"

She is so wise!!

True Sister Love!!!

When I found out I was having my second girl I was so happy. I had dreams of them being best of friends. When she was born I had hope....

Well sooner or later reality hits and you hope they end up at least liking each other. My girls fight ALL THE TIME. Over things of no importance at all, Then a night like last night happens.

Girl# 2 said her tummy was upset right before bed so we sent her to bed with a bowl. My friends to my defence I thought it was a ploy to stay up late or sleep on my floor.

All of the sudden I hear her running to the bathroom followed by girl#1 yelling " Do you want me to come hold your hair"

Now if that aint love I don't know what is!

*Girl#2 ended up being just fine and no hair needed to be held.

Master,The Tempest is Raging

I have had the worst emotional 2 weeks IN MY LIFE!!!! I had been trying to keep my impending emotional breakdown under control. At first I tried to convince myself that is was the worst April fool’s joke imaginable then to just convince myself I was o.k. that the situation was o.k. I could ignore and hold it together.

As I walked into Sacrament meeting yesterday the Opening Prayer was being said. The words that were spoken HIT my heart and I felt the Dam start to break. I could do this I had my class to teach PLUS and extra class. I prayed I could repair the Dam while trying to keep the tears from coming and looking like a blubbering idiot where all could see. When I realized it was useless I tried to compose myself as best I could and run (o.k. I don't run but I wanted to) to my car. As I left the Chapel the Dam let loose thank heavens I got to the car without seeing anyone.

I have never been so low, so beaten and so lost. I have had a child die and this was different. Surprising? I knew with my son there was a purpose; I knew that it was temporary that we would be apart. This was a different hurt. I couldn't fix the situation, I had tried it made it worse.

As I sat in my car crying and pleading with my Heavenly Father to remove the pain to remove the situation from my memory....... peace came. I had been praying, pleading for this but when I let it all out then he gave me that peace.

The situation is still going on, the sadness is still here but I know that I have done all I can. I can't control others actions just my own. I have realized that while this has been going on I have not read my Scriptures daily and forgotten to pray fervently daily.

So while around me Satan is raging in those I love I can have the peace in my life that all will be well. He will keep me focused on what is important and letting go what I can't control.

My Frog Prince brought his hysterical wife home let me cry for hours took a very long nap and woke up realizing that through persecution I can become stronger.

I am stronger.

Easter 2010

Our easter was a very calm one since General Conference fell on it this year. We didn't have to do baskets have the hunt and try to be out the door by 9 even 11:30 was a struggle. My parents came to visit and had to leave early Sunday so we did Easter Dinner Sat. We also took this time to talk about why we celebrate Easter and to my joy they knew why and not to get our baskets filled.

We did the usual.....

My mom looks thrilled because girl # 2 is very messy when we do any crafts.
She even said"why am I always with her"

While the older girls dyed my table easter eggs girl#3 enjoyed playing with the box. She kept putting the little circle cutouts in to the holes that hold the eggs to dry. Fun was had by all!!

This year I made these cute Easter baskets our of clear paint cans. The great thing is that I can put the grass in 1, empty eggs in another put the lid on them and everything stays together. I think they turned out great.

They were filled to the brim Sunday morning. I was horrible and only got a picture of Girl#3 with her basket and honestly it was only because she had filled her mouth with a whole lot of jelly beans.

I have failed my children in documenting the loot.

Of course we had an Easter Egg hunt.

The Easter bunny hid them so well we had to play Hot and Cold or we would have been there for hours.

Daddy treated us and made Chocolate chip bunny pancakes. Yummy.

This is her new goof smile!

Always poised and ready for the picture!!

After a nice Easter bath because she was a mess. We played games and watched The Princess Frog that the Easter Bunny brought.

This is what The Frog prince and Frog King did on Easter. ( The King is my dad.)

We had an enjoyable Easter we hope that yours was too.
