This is the best shot of the big hair.......

Trying to get a shot of the kids before church is a crazy idea. I think next time I want a few pictures of the kids, I need to have doughnuts sitting right there to bribe them.

What's Up

*one of my favorite pictures from the trip, Kade and I.

I still have a few pictures from my trip that I want to use and blog about. I know, no more about the trip.....so here an update from my life.

I watched to movie, Twilight, with a great friend of mine. I had such a good time. It had been awhile since I got out without my kids.  Thanks, Deborah.

  I have been fighting off the sickness. So I spent the day kicking around the house, reading a book.  Then Rich and I went to the Temple. It was so wonderful and peaceful. Thanks John/AJ for watching our kids.

I am going out for Palmers Girls Night. I love this monthly dinner. My mother in law takes me and my 2 sils out for dinner.We chat about our kids, our lives and all the craziness.  I miss Julie and wish that she was here for our dinners. Still on cold medicine......

More Teeth Gone

Did I mention that Crewe also lost another tooth? His front right tooth had been loose for a while now. Dr. Nan was wanting to pull it. Crewe thought about it all week and decided to have the tooth pulled while we were on the beach  in the Bahamas. Perfect place for a tooth pulling. Maxine visited him that night and paid him double for bravery.

Crewe is 5 1/2

It seems like a lot of this blog has been about Dayne lately. We have not forgotten our sweet boy. In fact, last week we celebrated his 5 1/2 year old birthday. A very big deal when you have a summer birthday (Who knew?). I told Crewe that we could have a small pizza party with kids from his school. And we will, just not right now. :) All the same let me mention a few things about Crewe.
1. He is the NICEST boy I know.
2. He is very kind and thoughtful.
3. He is fantastic with his sister and his little cousin, Rebecca.
4. He is very silly  and has the best laugh
5. He still loves cars. Once a week he pulls out his animal bucket and plays with animals.
6. Favorite food: pizza or pancakes
7. Favorite place to go: Grandma's house or the Zoo.
8.He is a great swimmer.
9. He is really smart and is obsessed with finding words that rhyme.
10. He loves his friends, playing video games and computer games.
We love you, Crewe!

First time we painted the fingernails. Welcome to my fold, little one......


I kept getting comments on how long and big Dayne's hair was in the last post. It really isn't. It was just big bounce hair. Here she is last week.
