President Muffin

A few days ago Ethan was saying our family prayer. Daddy was prompting him what to say. Daddy said, "Bless President Monson" and Ethan repeated, "Bless President Muffin". It was all we could do to keep from busting out laughing in the middle of the prayer. ;-)

Can a girl have too many shoes?

Never! Here is Eva's shoe collection.....a girl after my own heart. Mind you, these shoes are all size 0-2 (there are many more stored in the garage for later). :-)

Haircuts for all!

We had to fix the "haircut" that Brenna gave Ethan after she gave herself a haircut. I've cut Ethan's hair several times with scissors but this is my first attempt at cutting his hair with the clippers. I hope I'm better at it than Brenna. ;-)

The original haircut (done by Brenna)

The 2nd haircut (done by yours truly). He was not happy about all the hair getting in his mouth. Sorry, Ethan! Mommy's still learning (and you're the guinea pig).

Here's Ethan's new "spiky" haircut:

Brenna's photo shoot of her new hairstyle:

Since everyone else was getting drastic hairstyles, I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon. Here's my new "darker" hair. After Brandon called me a "vixen", I obliged him and posed for the camera.

My Little Pixie Girl

Here's my little hairstylist with her new pixie haircut. We are getting used to it being short and it actually looks pretty cute. I would have never cut it this way on purpose but it's really not that bad.

Two Haircuts

I NEVER thought this day would come but.....Brenna decided to try her hand as a hairstylist and CUT HER HAIR!!!!!!!!! I can't believe she did it! We had just finished watching the Disney movie, "Bridge to Terabithia" (for the 3rd time) and I had a feeling that she was going to ask to have her hair like the girl in the movie (short, flipped out hair). Well, I was feeding Eva and as I was changing her diaper I had a feeling to go upstairs and check on the kids. I found them hiding in the closet and as Brenna stepped out, I saw her masterpiece. She had chopped the front and sides and some of the back of her hair to 2 inches long. Brenna looked at me and asked, "Do I look like the girl in the movie?" I screamed, fell to my knees, and sobbed uncontrollably (yes, I was hyperventilating). Her beautiful curly hair was gone! :-( Then I looked at Ethan and he was missing a chunk of hair in the front too.

I've since calmed down, thanks to my level-headed husband who reminded me that it's just hair and it will grow back. We're just glad she didn't get hurt.

She was pretty upset when I told her we'd have to cut off the rest of her hair. With a sad look on her face she said, "I'll look dumb". I was fighting to hold back the tears. Of course I told her she's beautiful no matter what her hair looks like. A nice salon kept their doors open late so we could take her to a professional to fix her mishap. When we got home, Ethan ran out to meet us and said to Brenna, "You're beautiful!" Daddy quickly hugged her and told her she looked like a princess. He then sat with her at the computer and showed her pictures of celebrities and beautiful ladies with short hair. Our daddy is the best!

When she was getting ready for bed she asked, "Will my hair grow back tomorrow?" I reassured her that it will grow back soon and she needs to drink lots of milk to help it grow. Immediately she ran downstairs and drank a glass of milk.

One day I'll look back on this and laugh....but today is not that day. :-(

First there were tears.

Here we have the mullet.

Here is just some of the hair she cut off. I found tons more hair in my bathroom.

We dashed to the salon (notice, again, the mullet).

Brenna's not very happy that we're chopping off her hair. :-(

Short and sweet

The back

This is the hairdo she was going for. This is the girl from the movie, "Bridge to Terabithia". It's a cute style, I have to admit, but she didn't quite get it right.

This is the story of my life right now. :-)

The veil is thin

Whenever I am sitting on the couch to feed Eva, she'll stop eating (no matter how hungry she is) and stare, smile, or talk at this picture of the Savior we have hanging on the wall. Her face lights up because she knows Him. The veil is very thin.
