Fun hair

The girls all requested something different to be done with their hair today.
Ally wanted a snake braid.  I think it turned out awesome.

 Josey went for the normal 2 French braids.
 Lucy wanted pig tails with a headband.

 Crazy smile Brigham!

Pretty girls

Monday, January 12, 2015


I am taking a stab in the dark, but I think there might always be this size difference between these 2 cousins.  Brigham thinks Jonah is awesome and continually tries to engage in play with him.  Jonah on the other hand is scared of Brigham.  Eventually they will play together.

Ben can read

The first book he read was "I like bugs".  It was also the first book Ally read.  The girls were more than willing to sit there as long as they could tell he was reading the actual words and not making it up.
Ben we are so proud of you! You've worked hard to learn how to read. We are glad you are excited about your new skill.

Fun morning delay

We started the day off with a 2 hr delay.  Hooray!
So we picked up the basement and quickly got to work making this masterpiece.
The kids loved it. I ended up sending the 5 of them upstairs so I could work faster. 

 While these 4 crazies went to play in the tent and have fun..

 this monkey tried to bite his way into a cracker container.
 He thought he was pretty funny.

 He ended up getting the lid off and was bummed to find that it was empty.

Snow fun!

As soon as the monkeys got home from school I let them put their gear on and run off some energy.  They were excited and went to bed easily.

 He was bummed he couldn't join the big kids outside.
