Boys had a busy weekend!

Well, I must document the craziness of the past few days. On Saturday morning, I woke up and Troy told me he was going to shave a 'Y' in the boys hair. Their hair has been way too long for awhile and I had been telling Troy that he just needed to shave their head, cause I just was too busy to get their hair cut. Well, Jake came out of the shower and showed me this:

I said, "HOLY HELL!" and the boys thought that was hilarious that I would swear. Here is a photo of both of them. Before they went to the game, I had to run a few errands. We ran into some friends, and they told me that the hair MUST be blue, and offered up their can of blue spray to do the job. They not only sprayed the boys hair blue, but they taped off their heads, so JUST the hair would be blue. Dedication, I tell ya!

They went to the BYU v Utah game, and came home and told me they were famous! They said EVERYBODY (including the kid selling drinks through the stands) asked if they could take their picture. They begged to go to church with their hair in the "Y-hawk" as Jake dubbed it, and we let them (minus the blue)...then they got to go show their grandparents, and then it came off. FINALLY! I was so sick of looking at it. Now, here are my two baldies!

This morning, I took the boys to the orthodontist, and Kyle got braces to pull this crazy tooth down, and Jake got some appliances to make his mouth bigger. Jake is missing his front 3 teeth, and has been for sometime now (since February). Apparently it is like a log jam up in his gums in regards to his teeth, so until we widen his mouth, they won't come down. Here are photos of them at the ortho...
Jake has appliances in the top and bottom of his mouth. Poor kid...
Hopefully the boys will survive the braces...
DISCLAIMER...most of these photos were taken with my phone...sorry for the horrendous quality!
In the next few days, I will post about our Thanksgiving in Idaho...stay tuned!

Haley is THREE!

Today my baby turned THREE! I can hardly believe this past 3 years has flown by so fast! 3 years ago, we were in Virginia...2 short weeks after Haley was born, we boarded a flight to move to Utah...I can't believe we have owned our home for 3 years! CRAZY!

Anyways, here are things about my silly sassy girl...
1. Lately she has added the word 'bum' to the end of every sentence. It drives me crazy.
2. She cries whenever I leave.
3. She likes to snuggle.
4. She LOVES Dora, and it's awesome to watch her watch Dora. She does EVERYTHING they ask her to do and is convinced it is real!
5. She sings. Her favorite song is "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.
6. For her birthday, she got this silver puffy vest and silver boots...she wants to wear them everyday! (we celebrated her birthday on Tuesday)
7. She is happy with the simplest things.
8. She loves her brothers and sister.
9. She constantly asks when Daddy will be home...
10. We sure do love this little diva.

Here are a few photos from our 5 minute photo shoot in front of our house.

I am on the snowy roads again...I suck at driving in the's time to lower my auto insurance deductable for the season! Don't worry, I usually only run into curbs, but thought I better let you all know that I don't know how to drive in the snow. I may need help in the next few months getting my car to and from the shop. ...sigh...Here's hoping to a better winter driving season for me!

'Tis The Season...

...for snow. Last night it started snowing. It was our first snow of the season (last time we were in CA). I was prepared. Old Navy is having their 50% off outerwear sale right now, AND I have a 30% off coupon for EVERYTHING (if you want it, let me know, and I will forward it to you), the kids got new coats. I have been amazed to find that coats for my boys are no 'pass down-able'. One a season...they are completely hammered by spring. So, I got them all a coat...for a great deal. Kristin was SO excited for this faux fur coat...naturally, she posed for me...and I couldn't resist...I LOVE this girl...

I know there are technically only 2 photos, but I couldn't decide what one I liked best, sepia (my own - trying it out), BW, or color...what do you think?

On a side note: for one of Kristin's homework assignments, she had to go around the house, and count how many photos she was in...NOW...if you've been to my house, you would KNOW this would be a daunting task...that is my boys had to help...I think she got to the upper 50's....sheesh...craziness...

Just wondering...

How much the school district would charge me to send my boys back to school 1 week early....????? (They are off-track for 3 weeks) They are driving me insane! Monday can not come soon enough!
