Hair Cut!

I haven't had a hair cut, except trims, in 4 years. Much to my husbands dismay, I thought it was time for a change. I had challenged my neices to see who could go the longest without cutting their hair, and who's got the longest. The two older ones didn't make it long, but Britnee, 10, made it until about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Well, once she cut her's, I lost my incentive to keep mine long. So I gave in and cut my hair yesterday!
Before: After:
I love it! It'll definatly take some getting used to, but that's the funnest part about it. It is an a-line and is so much fun. The pictures isn't the best, but for being taken by my 6 year old, I thought he did pretty good.

Loving these kids!

My little girl is getting so much fun these days. She's at the age that sounds are become words, everything is a prop to help her stand up, and her facials are worth a thousand words! And my little man is such a photogenic kid. He loves to have his picture taken and he has no idea what "candid" means. This particular picture, he has a mouth full of his FAVORITE food, chicken strips:)
And last bit of news, but certainly not least, my little girl has her first tooth! It broke through on 1.19.10, but you could only feel it. So here is a picture where you can kinda see it, if you look really hard! 9 1/2 months isn't bad.
Being a mom is the best job in the world. I love spending time with my family and playing with my kids. The unconditional love they give is worth all the labor, melt downs, spit up, sick in the middle of the night, and every thing else that comes with motherhood!

It is so fun when you have family come visit. Bart and Michelle live in St. George and had a weekend off so I envited them to come visit us(1.23-1.26). It was a mellow weekend, not too much to do, but it was sure fun to have someone there to visit with. Peyton and Brooklyn don't quite know what to do with each other yet, but I am sure they are going to make fast friends once they get a little older.
Ben never got the chance to feed Peyton with a bottle because she's never used a bottle. So while Brooklyn was here, she needed to be fed so Ben got his chance. If any of you know my husband, you know he doesn't like pictures, let alone smiling for pictures, but this was pretty dang close. I was alot of fun to spend time with Bart and Michelle. It has been harder for us to live this far from family and not have as much contact with them as we'd like so we have to cherish time when we do get to get together.
