Updates from April to September

So it has been a long time since I have blogged. So older photos go first.

We got Dallin some ballons for his birthday and Christine decided to spin herself in the strings around her neck while I was feeding Emma. I told her to take it off right away and so she pulled the string and it gave you a friction burn on her neck. I felt so bad for her it stayed for weeks.Jake and Christine playing with candy clay one of there favorite things to do.
Not only can you mold it but eat it as well.

Here is the recipe if you would like to try it.

1 lb powdered sugar

1/3 cup corn syrup

1/2 tsp. salt

1/3 cup softened butter

1 tsp. vanilla

5-7 drops food coloring

Mix all the ingredients together in medium bowl until blended. If its a too sticky add more powdered suger.

But she didn't mind dancing with him.
She was following right along with Chuck E. She did the same moves he did.

Happy Birthday Dallin

Well it is Dallin's 29th birthday and the kids always enjoy birthdays. I made dinner that Dallin requested and then we went to Kangaroo Zoo which is a warehouse full of inflatable playground toys. It wasn't just fun for the kids but also for the birthday boy.
Here is his birthday roll.

Emma Catherine

Our new baby girl Emma Catherine weighted in at 9 lbs 6 oz and 23 inches long.


She came two days early and it is great that she is finally here. Both Jake and Christine were so excited to see her and hold her. They are always asking to hold the baby.

We named her after my grandma's name which I am partly named after.

This is the first time that we have been trick or treating in our neighborhood since we brought the house last year and where still in between places. It was really fun here. There was a alot of activities to do. We trick or treated at the rec center the night before and then the day of Halloween we trick or treated on Main Street at the different shops and then to our neighbors at night. So the kids got good use of there costumes.

Jake wanted to be a skeleton for months but recently Dallin has let him watch reruns of He-Man and he kept saying he was Skeletor. We were proud of Jake's costume since it was home made and it glowed in the dark.
After much thought of what to have Christine be we decided to make her "Pinkalicious" from her favorite book. And she is such a funny girl that she would not let us take a picture of her until she had her wand.

Christine's First Official Hair Cut

Yes, I have given her a slight trim in the back before but for an actual shape, I wanted to go to a professional. So I took both Jake and Christine to get their hair cut at Cookie Cutters. Jake went first to show Christine that there was nothing to be afraid of.

But as you can see she is still thinking about it.

She got to pick out what car she wanted to sit in and what movie she wanted to watch
which was Care Bears.

She did really well until it came to the spritzing of the hair.

The finished product her eating a lollipop and I think she looks gorgeous.
