Our Cosmetolgist

Seryn is one of those girls who is always going into the bathroom to clip her nails or comb her hair, put on make-up, or just make herself look pretty. And if I let her do it herself, she'd be painting her nails EVERYDAY!

Saturday night, I went into my bathroom and found hair in my sink. Yesterday morning, I discovered she'd cut bangs for herself so she could have bangs like me, Lylli, and (even though she's growing hers out) Layla.

The funny thing is, she did this by herself. I had to trim up the sides, but she cut them pretty straight. Do we have a cosmetologist in the works here? Perhaps!

(And since Seryn is the queen of face making, I added this one too.)

Fun with Grandma and the Gibbs!

This last weekend, my mom came to visit! Since she was planning to be in town, my sister decided to come too. We had a lot of fun! I had things planned, and we all know how that can go. Instead, my mom brought a bunch of old prom dresses that my sister and I had worn in high school. So we had a giant dress-up party!

Lylli in my wedding dress.

Seryn in one of my prom dresses!
Surprisingly, Michelle and I fit into some of our old dresses. Others, we didn't! (At least not if you count having to be zipped up, fitting.)

Natalie, Lylli, Me, Seryn, and Michelle. (Lylli's wearing my baptism dress.)
I even fit into my wedding dress!

I realize I'm wearing a pained expression, but it was tight!! And I think that I should get points for even being able to zip it up! Especially since I'm 30 lbs. heavier than I was when I got married nearly 10 years ago!

And Saturday night, all the girls wore Kleenex in their hair and had curly hair Sunday for church!
This is the second year my mom has been here for her birthday! The kids had a great time throwing her a party. Layla was upset that we forgot the balloons, but the cake and ice cream were good! What a fun weekend!
This is the girls making cards for Grandma before she came! I just had to stick it in here because they're so cute!

Healthy Activities

I need to get into the habit of blogging again. So, I'll start today.
We still LOVE our kitty. He's getting bigger and I've had to ban the kids from playing with him some days. (They love him a little bit TOO much!)

See how Seryn holds his neck so he won't get away?

Jerry has been to visit us a couple times over past two weeks. The girls love seeing him when he stops by!
And Jerry is a good sport!
My friend has lots of family in Provo and her family all have fruit trees. Last weekend, she took me to pick some peaches at one of her grandma's house. So, last weekend, the girls and I canned peaches and jam. They had a great time!
Lylli commented on how good it was that we were preparing and preserving something healthy.
Saturday afternoon, last week, we finally took the girls up the 'Y'. We have been trying to do it all summer. But it was so hot! Then Shane and I got sick. We were finally able to go! All three girls walked all the way up and down! (Seryn collapsed on the last 1/4 mile down and we put her in the backpack.)

It was quite a hike! The girls loved it! And we could hear the football game! Shane thinks I should hike this daily! But with Seryn on my back, I don't know that that will happen!
Layla didn't realize how high up the 'Y' was. And she thought it was funny that though the 'Y' looked little from our house, it's really HUGE! :)
