Part one of catching up... Independence Day July 4th, 2009

I just love Summer and Frankly am missing it terribly now that it's approaching the coldest days of the year. This year's 4th was a blast. Micaela and Phil moved back to our area this year and so we had lots of fun spending time with them and the little kiddies. Sascha and Ian even made it out for the celebration of our Country and Freedom. We missed Jesse and Susan and hope they can make it out more next year (or us in their direction) We celebrated this year by attending the local firework show. It was very good! A good time was had by all :D

Awesome Fireworks

Farewell to 24!

Two days past my birthday where I have now become a quarter century old. I am just so grateful to all my wonderful friends and family who make me feel important! Love you all and I'll write more soon!

Here's one for you

Since I am horrible at blogging but I should say something I just thought I would tell you that I decided I do NOT like Ramen Noodles. Yuck! I just made them for lunch and I couldn't finish them. They are gross.... So that's it for now. When a few of the hectic and busy things in my life subside just a little I will blog an actual real post.

Pretty Bab...ies

There have been a lot of changes lately but the most exciting change is that Micaela and Phil are moving back to Salt Lake with their 3 lovely chillins. I'm so excited because I just adore these little ones. Another exciting change is that Micaela's sister in Law Abby just got married. This brings us to the reason of this post. New Hair! Yay!
Ok disclaimer, yes I do hair. Yes I know how to cut children's hair but in this case I thought it would be alright for the girls to go to Cookie Cutters instead of me cutting their hair. Cookie Cutters is an awesome place set up just for children's haircuts. It's quite brilliant actually! They have cute little stations, each equipped with children friendly items, including but not limited to: Salon chairs designed to look like airplanes/cars etc... Playstation, and DVDs to watch so they stay focused. Here's the deal with cutting kids hair, It's hard! Children are all born with a short attention span (sometimes even as adults it's still the case) therefore, cutting their hair can be a nightmare. Have you ever tried to cut bangs on a child and they move their head and all of a sudden you've cut off way more than planned? Well I have! It's frustrating and then you feel bad. The most clever thing I could come up with when cutting a child's hair was to put my monster cape on them, point out a monster for them to look at and have them count to 10. Yeah it worked a little but they got bored fast. So anyway, my point being, I fully support my sister's decision to take the little ones to Cookie Cutters for their first haircuts. Plus, then I got to take pictures, woo hoo!

So there you have it, something new and exciting, I can't wait to see my nieces and nephews more often. They are only going to live about 10 min away from here. It just makes me happy!

Dear Blog World...

I am not dead, I am only sleeping...
