Easy Breezy, Lemon Peezy

Nigel is sporting a great look here - perfect for putting Sue's letter in the mail box for me.
Evelyn found the courage to try it for herself, but of course she took it to the next level. This is from when she used to be potty trained. I think we have been potty training for almost a year. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...

Evelyn found a little package and opened it up. She used it as a telescope. Way to go, girl!

January Snowball Fight

When the sky is not giving you snow, you make your own. The kids had a paper ball snowball fight. I love Nigel's form and Johnny's follow through. Great benefits to fake snow - no cold, no wet, no foul even if you get hit in the head. Totally awesome.

Baskin Robbins Birthday

I just turned 31 years old in December. With traveling and being alone on my actual birthday, we finally got around to celebrating the way that I wanted to - at Baskin Robbins, home of 31 flavors. I worked there in highschool and used to have a treat EVERY day after work. My metabolism as an adult is incredibly different so I could never work at BR now with the same benefit not affecting my pant size. But I did want to go get some ice cream. Although the cup design has changed, they still have the pink spoon and World Class Chocolate. An additional birthday treat was that we happened to come on Two-Fer Tuesday. Buy any sundae, get another sundae of equal or lesser value FREE. Yum. Happy Birthday to me. 31 days late...

Call of the Wild

Nana took us to the Bean Museum and the BYU Museum of Paleontology and then the nickelcade. So fun! We might have a future dentist on our hands as well as a future successful dental patient. Evelyn's reaction to dinosaurs was hilarious. I think Evelyn was nervous about big dinosaurs but we called them mommy dinos and then looked for their eggs and she wasn't scared anymore. She had no trouble with tigers or elephants or turtles. She makes a great monster/lion growl and is often the designated bad guy as Johnny and Nigel chase her around the house.

Wiggety wiggety wack

Sometimes you just want to change something up in your life. A new year, a new you. It could be a new car or a new toothbrush or ordering something different off the dollar menu just to spice things up. For this family, it's all about the new 'do.

Happy New Year!

We had a crazy New Year's party! After bingo, we went crazy with body balance tricks. The pregnant belly was not conducive to participation but I was the designated photographer. 2012 looks like it's going to be a great year.
