A New "Do"

On Monday Brigette got her first "real" haircut! She has had her hair trimmed before but not ever really cut! It was starting to look pretty scraggly!!! So, I took her to the best beautician ever- my mom!!! Brigette was so excited!!! My mom worked her magic and here is my super cute Brigette with her adorable new hair-do, that she absolutely LOVES!!!!
Thanks mom!!!

A couple of weeks ago, the girls and I decided to go on a road trip to visit Aunt Ash and Uncle Sam!!! I hadn't been to Tucson in about 7 years, so I was kind of nervous about heading all the way down there with just me and the girls. But we loaded up the Tahoe and hit the road!!! We stayed for 2 nights and we had sooo much fun!!! We did a little shopping, went to the movies and saw Despicable Me. Tera cried and screamed through almost all of it!!! What I did see was very cute and funny!!!! We also did some swimming, went to the pet store and ate some yummy food!!!Here is Tera checking out some puppies at the pet store! She absolutely loved them, and I can't wait to get the girls a dog of their own!!!

Brigette and Tera had a super fun time in the swimming pool at Uncle Sam and Aunt Ashley's apartment. We only got to go swimming once because it decided to be smarmy and rainy the rest of the time we were there!!! That's okay though, since as soon as we got home they got to do another session of swim lessons!!! Tera is convinced she can swim now!!!! Yikes!!!

After floating around the pool in her purple hippo, Tera decided to get out, check out the deck, try out some lawn chairs, fall in the hot tub and stompity stomp some ants!!!! She was pretty funny to watch!!!!

When it was time to go home I was surprised that Sam wasn't jumping with joy!!! After all, there was some milk spilled, messes made and a movie ticket stub dropped in one of his guitars... whoops!!!! I am happy though that they did say we could come back and visit again!!! I told Ash I would for sure come in November when the 1st half of the 7th Harry Potter comes out!!! We are planning on going to the midnight premiere*!!!!! I'm so excited I can hardly wait!!!!

*maybe I will wear a cape and take my wand..... ;D

Rodeo Time

A few months ago Zach was asked by APS to participate in some Lineman Rodeos. He accepted gladly and has since then been to Salt Lake City, Utah, Portland, Oregon, and Montana (sorry, can't remember the name of the town!!!) These are a few pictures from Portland. He has done pretty good. In Utah he took 3rd in the written test!!!

He has been practicing a little so that he will be able to speed climb with a raw egg in his mouth and a few other kind of crazy things!!!

He is hoping to be asked to go to Nationals in Kansas City, but isn't sure he will make it. Evidentally Montana didn't add some of his score in and he doesn't have the paper work anymore to send them his times!!!

Overall, I think he has had a lot of fun and has learned a lot also!!!

Good Job, Zach!!!

Ooh~la~la Darling!!!!

On July 30th my Brigette Grace turned 4 years old!!!! I just can't believe that my little 8lb 8oz baby girl is 4!!!!
For months Brigette has been telling my that she wanted a "Fancy Nancy" birthday party. So I looked all over the Internet and finally found a few things that would work! This cake pan is from her 1st birthday, its a Princess Crown, it fit perfect for Fancy Nancy, so we used it!!! This is pretty much the first cake I have ever decorated, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out!!! While I was curling Briggie's hair we kept hearing thunder. I could tell she was getting a little nervous, so I suggested she ask Heavenly Father to let it not rain until after her party!!! She did, and Heavenly Father kept the rain until the party was over!!!

This was right when people were showing up!!! Hayden and Tanner had been playing in the water, they were soaking wet and freezing but still wore their top hats and bow ties!!! Brigette was so excited!!! I should've got a close up of her in her tutu, gloves, pink feather boa, crown, wand and jewels!!! Everybody looked so cute and I am pretty sure they had lots of fun too!!!

We had a couple more people show up, but I never had a chance to get more pictures!!!
(L-R; Emmaree, Mason, Laci, Elly, Tera, Tanner, and Hayden, Brigette is in back)

My dad was even sweet enough to wear a bowtie!!!

Brigette opening presents!!
I didn't get a picture of her blowing out the candles, it was pretty windy and she blew them out as soon as they were all lit!!! We got her another trampoline since her last one flew away!!! She also got a pillow pet, work books, a microphone, t-shirts and paint and lots of other fun stuff!!!!
Happy Birthday Brigette!!!!
We love you!!!
