I did Sammie's hair! :)

Sun's Scrimmage game, A lost tooth, and a haircut...

Ashley lost her tooth last week- FINALLY. It was hanging on by a thread for weeks.

We took everyone to the Sun's scrimmage game at McKale Center on Friday. The kids LOVED it! Sammie danced and played the whole time. Ashley was just happy to have nachos and sprite(takes after her mother), and Taylor kept an eagle eye on the gorilla, ready to bolt if he came anywhere near. As we left, Samantha threw herself on the ground and said, " I wanna stay here!"

Yesterday, I took Ashley to get her hair cut. She loved getting it washed and styled. She thought she was pretty hot stuff.

Today is I miss NYC day...


If you've been to NY, tell me your favorite thing about it. If you haven't been there, tell me when we're going. :)

I love the energy. I love the constant hum of activity. I love the diversity. I love the architecture. I love the black stuff that gets all over my face after a day of walking around the city. Ok, I don't really like that, but I'd take some black stuff from NYC on my face today.

Time keeps passing...

Taylor learned how to ride a bike without training wheels. He woke up one morning and told me he had a dream where he learned how to ride his bike. Michael took off his training wheels and they tried it once- Taylor was terrified and decided he didn't want to learn after all. A few days later he decided, once again, that he was ready. Now he wants to ride ALL THE TIME. No matter that it is 95 degrees out. He's not too good at steering. He's almost taken out me, Samantha, and Grandma's car. But he's getting better!

I blog in spurts...

Samantha's party was fun- she is the first of my kids to not freak out when everyone is singing happy birthday. She just sang along!

P.S. I promise I do Samantha's hair. Every morning she says, "Hair Pwetty?" And so we do her hair. It lasts 10 minutes. Sometimes even an hour.

I made cupcakes from scratch with a recipe from Magnolia Bakery in NYC. They are easy, but very time consuming.

I guess it was worth it though- Samantha enjoyed them. :)
