Lizzy's Haircut

We cut Lizzy's hair today (well, Great Clips did it).  She and I were both sick of snarls and crying, and so, the long long hair went bye bye.  It was probably 5-6 inches of hair we cut off.  She looks cute, though, and she loves it.

It used to be down to the middle of her back!  This is so much shorter!

Congratulations Carrie!

My sister in law, Carrie, successfully delivered two beautiful twin baby girls!  They are so precious!  Named Chloe and Dominique, both are about 5 lbs.  Congratulations Carrie!  Awesome job!

The hats, by the way, are hand made by Carrie, and she sells them (and other incredibly cute crochet items) on etsy.  See her link in my links to the right.

Lizzy's First Talk

Lizzy gave her first talk in church today.  She did a really good job!  Her topic was, "Heavenly Father is a God of Miracles."  I videotaped a portion of her talk while we were practicing it this morning.  She did better during the real talk than she does in the video.

Christmas Meadows

My mom, her boyfriend, John, and my sister, Angela, all went camping this weekend at Christmas Meadows in the Unitas.  The girls and I joined them for part of the trip, and had a really fun time hiking, and hanging out.  It rained on and off, but luckily, we had my dad's big hexagonal screen room, which we were all able to sit under and play some games while the rain went over.

In the screen house to get out of the rain!
