Mommy's Girl

Avalyn took this picture of Shallon and me. I just thought that it was cute!

Rockstar Hair

Sooo... I picked Avalyn up from an after-school playdate and this is how she looked!

Though I was not exactly happy about her new hair color, I am a scrapbooker, so I had to take a couple pictures. Then it was straight to the bathtub for her. After about an hour of scrub, rinse, repeat... we were able to get all of the red out of her hair. And I am happy to say that Avalyn is blonde once again.

New Hair!

Grammy came over today, so that I could help her highlight her hair. Now, I am by no means a professional, but I think that it turned out really cute! Lots of all over blondeness! And since there was a ton of hightlighting stuff left over, we decided to have Grammy do my hair. I think my hair also turned out really cute, I really like it. It's a little more stripy than Grammy's hair. It's fun to change up your look every now and then and I haven't done that in a long time. Thanks sooo much Grammy for the fun new hair!!!

preschool pictures

Today was picture day at Briley's preschool. I think that her pictures turned out really cute, fake smile and all! Even the group shot, with all of the kids doing something different, just like real life. As you can see Briley is the only girl this year. Which is a flip from Avalyn's 2 years in Preschool, where both years there was just 1 boy. Briley is really loving Preschool, even with all the boys!

Pahrump Dairy Field Trip

Briley's preschool teacher, Miss Shelley, set up a really fun field trip to our local dairy today. I think that the kids really had a good time (except the only GIRL, Briley, who complained the whole time about how stinky it was). We even got to see some newborn cows that were born as recently as that morning. I could not believe how big the newborns were, as a mom all I have to say is "Thank goodness I am not a cow," those babies are gigantic! *(see pictures of kids right up against the fence) And we ended the field trip with some yummy chocolate milk and cookies provided by Shelley. Thanks Shelley, what a fun field trip, (even though it was pretty stinky)!

We (heart) Chuck E. Cheese!

While we were on vacation in Las Vegas, our good friends, the Abbiss Family, came to visit us. They have 3 kids just like us and the kids are all about the same ages. Avalyn and McKenna are both 5 (ok technically McKenna just turned 6 a week ago), Briley and Theron are both 3, and Shallon and Kairi are 8 months apart. We took all the kids over to Chuck E. Cheese. They were REALLY excited!!! *(see photo #1 "jumping for joy") And they had lots of fun. Plus, it was really nice to see our friends while we are on vacation.
