Girl hair

I love playing with my girls hair and trying new styles out. I wish I could be as creative with my own hair, but it is harder to do on myself and most of the things I do don't really work on a mama. Here are a few pictures I have taken of some of the things I have done. Sorry lots of them are pretty blurry, but you get the basic idea.

Back Cracking

My brother, John, is in Chiropractic school here in TX and we LOVE having him so close by. Not only is he a fun guy to have around, but he is really good at cracking our backs and necks and anywhere else that may need some adjusting.
Here's Luke enjoying a little adjustment

Happy Birthday to Paisley

Our baby turned 4 on Valentine's Day. It seems hardly possible for her to be this old already. She is our fiesty independent girl and brings so much laughter to our home. Tina and Phoebe made a sweet heart cake that was so big that I was able to save the top layer for her little party with friends.

We went to Build A Bear on her big day and got her a new bear she named Pinky

The party was thrown together at the last minute and only lasted an hour, but they had fun and Paisley was happy (even though I forgot to invite 1 of her church girlfriends). The little girls made cereal necklaces and frosted heart shaped rice krispie treats.

New Tile

Scott found the perfect tile for our kitchen backsplash. It helped to have some family in town when doing this project. It went pretty quickly with Scott and John doing most of the work. The kitchen feels totally new and I love it!

Ethen's Deacon Quorum Initiation

Apparently Ethen thought it was Scott trying to get him up from sleep, but he quickly realized that was not the case. They took him out to IHOP for breakfast

Feeding Ducks on a Cold Day

While Nana was visiting we took an afternoon and went over to Town Lake to feed the ducks. The wind was blowing pretty strong and cold that day, but it felt pretty good in the sun and the ducks seemed to really appreciate our donation. The seagulls even hovered over our heads in swarms. Paisley didn't like that very much. They got too close and look a little scary in such large groups. It was good to get out for a little, even in the cold.
