Face Painting

I took the kids to the Children's Health Expo and the hospital this morning. Not because I thought it would be any fun but because I needed something to do and Nephi was going to be there with his dog Eron and asked me to stop by. So we went. It wasn't so terrible I suppose. The kids got a baggie full of fun little things and that always makes for some happy kids. About the only part I got a kick out of was the face painting. It turned out adorable! This is the first time my kids have wanted to do something like that. Usually when I suggest face painting I get met with much resistance so I was happy they were excited this time.

All three of them looking super cute!

Lillian just got some colorful streaks with glitter and stars. She held perfectly still the whole time! The girl doing it was so impressed because she had just had another little girl and was only able to get half the ladybug on because she was squirming so much. Way to go Lilli!

Lucy got a big shooting star with a rainbow trailing down her face and some smaller accent stars. She was the first to jump up in the chair to get it done!
Ah Isaac... I didn't think he would get one at all but he surprised me. He chose obviously a black mask. He squirmed the most out of all three. I told him it was just like putting on eye shadow only to say well I guess you wouldn't know what that's like hahaha. But he was thrilled with the final product.

Newest baby...

I know its been forever since I've updated. So many things have happened but I won't even try to play catch up at this point. Sufficeth to say we've been very busy with end of school, recital, school board and just daily life. Summer is in full swing and kids are keeping me bouncing. My house will seem so empty come school time again. But I did want to share about the newest addition to our little family. No we haven't had another baby yet... we got a dog. Her name's Sadie. She's an older dog. She is a toy rat terrier. Super cute and tiny and a perfect starter dog for the kids to get them over their fears of animals. She's mostly an outside dog but I do bring her in when the days get really hot or the storms get scary. I just hate to leave her out there by herself. But we're enjoying the experience of owning a dog for the first time. Any maybe the last.... time will tell I suppose.

Dance pictures!!

I know I've been talking about Lucy a lot but she's been the one doing everything lately. I have some stuff coming up for the other two so soon so I'll talk about them too I promise. For now... its dance picture times. We got some super cute shots. We did three poses. One by herself, one with Danica, and one with the whole class. She did a great job. She looked just like a little model. I snapped some pictures before we left because I didn't know if we were allowed to take pics at the shoot. We were evidently which makes me sad but these will do for now and soon I'll get the professional ones back. So enjoy!!

Lucy's new look!!

Lucy, my Lucy, is so into everything girl including makeup and nails and dresses. The only thing she doesn't get into is letting me style her hair. For whatever reason it just has to be down all the time. Well I guess she watched me and Christina getting our hair dyed enough that she decided she needed to do it too and it had to be pink because that's a very girlie color! She begged and begged and tried a few times to sneak out of the house and go down the street to the hair salon. I finally gave in. Its not that I really cared that much if she got it done. She was excited. She had to wait about a week and she asked every day of that week if today was the day. I meant to take my camera down there with us and take pics of the process but i forgot in my haste to get out the door. So as soon as we got home we snapped some pics. Notice on the first pic that she also got Karla to paint her nails hahaha. Like I said. Very girlie.
