We were in Vegas this weekend, just me and the kids. The loved playing with their cousin. The newest cousin was born while we were there but we didnt get to see her. We are all excited to go back to meet her.

They loved the hotel. The first thing Mackenzee wanted to do was check out the TV. She loved waking up and watching Saturday morning cartoons on Disney.

Eliza just loved crawling around the room.

Hair cut

I chopped off my hair last week and LOVE it. Here is the new due (these are from when I did it myself). I love it because it took only 7 min total to dry an style!!! When I get a decent pict of the front I will add it.

Time at Granma Grapes

I will post more later but wanted to get the kids in the snow. They had so much time up there.

Funny Day

When we got home from preschool Mackenzee's friend was outside so they started playing together. Eventually they all came in the house and of course Mackenzee got on her Belle Dress (the one she got for Christmas with the hoop skirt). When her friend left I told her she needed to change back and go get her bike (at the end of the cul-de-sac). I glanced outside a few seconds later and she was running down the street (with tennis shoes and gloves) with her hair blowing like a movie star and holding up her dress like a princess. I was dying laughing. I called her to come back but she didnt hear me until she was about to get on the bike. That would have been funny seeing how she was in a hoop skirt. I got her to stop and I brought up the bikes.

On my way up I called my friend to see if she had seen Mackenzee. I was talking with her about it on my bluetooth when I got to the door. Mackenzee looked at me like I was crazy and said:

"Are you talking to yourself?" (which is what we all think when we see someone talking with a hands free set)

After reassuring her I wasnt and showing her the ear piece she wanted to put it on her ear. She wore it until it rang and freaked her out. She ran in to me and threw it at me saying its ringing with a panicked look.

Here is a few pict of her wearing the bluetooth.

Book of Mormon Challange

The challenge has begun! (today)

President Hinckley often stressed our making the Book of Mormon part of our lives. He was 97 when he passed away, and we would like to celebrate his life and teachings by reading the Book of Mormon in 97 days.

I was emailed this link 3 times today and thought I would give it a try. It is easy to sign up for and great since we are studying the Book of Mormon this year in church. I always do better when I have a set date to complete it by. It will tell you how many pages you need to read each day to finish by May 11 (the 97th day).
