Jonah always looks older when I give him a new haircut...makes me so sad to think that he's still growing and isn't staying the sweet little bundle of joy I remember bringing home from the hospital 5 1/2 years ago.
I have a love-hate relationship with watching Allix grow up. I LOVE seeing her evolve into her own individual self. I LOVE watching her do things that it seems just yesterday she couldn't do on her own. On the other hand, now she is so independent! She wants to do everything by herself.
She really enjoyed it...creating all on her own
She loves Dora & Boots!
She seemed like she really took pride in what she was doing.
I love these little hands...
Then I asked if I could help?? Any guesses on what she said??
Invited friends over last night for dinner and games. Finished making dinner except for the bread. Friends arrive. Greetings! Kids start playing. Put bread in the oven. Power goes out! Happy kids turn into frightened kids. I screamed!...almost I cried!...almost Tried to compose myself. Found three flashlights. Turned them on. Batteries are dead. In all three! Jonah and I are on the verge of crying. Found the batteries. Put batteries in the flashlights. Yay they work! Happy kids! Happy mom! Let's eat. In the dark? No. Where do we get light? The Hummer. The Hummer? Yes the Hummer. Oh ok...? Danny drove the Hummer over the curb, Through the snow,
And onto our porch.
3 feet away from the house.
Headlights lit up the dining room enough to see what we were eating. Kids cheered! I cheered! Attempted to eat dinner with semi-cooked bread. Spilled dinner. Attempted to drink juice. Dripped juice. Attempted to eat cake.
Good thing we couldn't see the mess. Overall, Sloppy clothes, Messy house, An adventure, A memorable dinner, And a fun time with friends! Let's do it again!
P.S. This was the cake I had to try that I pinned on pinterest. It was very good :)
I love it when I'm in the mood to do whatever my children ask me to do (which sadly doesn't happen too often). Since Jonah didn't have school on Monday (Martin Luther King Jr. Day), Jonah wanted to make cookies, take them to Danny at work, and surprise him. The cookies, however, never ended up leaving the house. It ended up snowing outside and Allix has a lingering cough that I didn't want to make worse. Also, I really really dislike driving in snow...why do I live in Utah again??
But, daddy was surprised when he saw the sweet cookies after he got home :) Hopefully another day we'll try and surprise him with something else at work ;)
P.S. Please don't pay any attention to the little girl giving the "bird" to the camera.
