Not sure what to title this...

We had a fun weekend. Early Sunday morning Ally threw up. We attended Sacrament Meeting and went back to the in laws. We packed up our stuff, Matt took a nap, we ate lunch and headed home. Yesterday around 4:20 am Ben threw up. Matt went in to work and came home a few hours later. I worked on laundry ALL DAY from the weekend and what Ben pucked on. Along with this I was able to order 12 things on the internet for Christmas. Only 1 will be staying here, the rest are gifts for outside our house. I am expecting 8 boxes in the next week or so!!! Online shopping is so great!! Stay in my pjs, deal with the kids, cycle laundry through, all while ordering presents online!
So yesterday Ben threw up a few more times and seems fine today. Ally threw up this morning around the same time Ben did yesterday. So Matt took today off. Now he and I are starting to feel something coming on, but hoping its just from cleaning up puke. Lucy is grumpy as well, so we'll see what happens with her.

The pictures of our hair

You'll have to look a few posts down to find our pictures.

One of our last warm days

So of course we had to get outside and play.
Ally had to swing.
And she can do it herself.
Ben found the neighbor boy's ball that he had forgotten outside.
Don't worry we returned it.

Tired boy

He fell asleep watching morning cartoons.
That's what happens when you wake up at 5:30am.

Our "new dos"

For those that guessed hair...

Ally donated 13 inches and I donated 15 inches of hair.

I need to take a few pictures of our new hair cuts. They turned out great. Ally looks ADORABLE.

1 more hint

I am not pregnant.

Here's a hint:

4 letters x 2.

So I have a post I want to do, but since I haven't been feeling the comment love lately, I'm going to hold off.

Please show some love and leave me a comment with your guess.

Ally's beautiful blonde hair

My last HURRAH on Ally's hair for a while. I had to go BIG.
I had to wake her up at 6:20 to start on her hair. Then I had to leave at 7:15 for ward council.
I then finished it during Sacrament meeting. I know I know. But I HAD to finish it. I've done this before, but I don't think I had 5 french braids with it. I ended up making some of this up as I went along because I forgot how I had done it before.
So this is AFTER church, so there's been some wear and tear on her hair.

Silly Ally.
After I took her hair out of the bun.

Silly kids

Lucy almost ALWAYS has her tongue sticking out.
She is standing really well.
This little guy was so tired. We got home from church, undressed him and started getting lunch ready for him. Meanwhile, he went up to his bedroom and found a pacifier and came downstairs and layed on the floor. I think he was REALLY tired.

Look what we got for $3.72

Ally and I both got boots, Ben got a t-shirt, a pair of gloves, 2 shirts for me and 3 shirts for Matt. All from Old Navy.
Don't you just love those eyes!!
I love that my kids all have blue eyes, but they are all different.

November 18

Ally is really into putting her outfits together herself.
Example: nightgown and favorite pink cardigan, right before I took the picture she had on a pink stocking cap and pink dress shoes.

Sweet boy.
Loving little princess.
I was in the kitchen and kept hearing Ben babbling about something and I walked over to see what was going on and found him laying down talking to Lucy, meanwhile she was giggling away. It must have been something funny he said!

I gave Lucy a biter biscuit at lunch and this is what she did with it.
When she got tired of her fingers, she broke the biscuit in half and threw it on the floor. Sounds like someone else I know!...
I love that Ally is always excited about everything, whether it be a happy excited or an I'm upset excited. She's real. And she'll tell you what's on her mind, even without asking.

Just a bit of information

Lucy is of course 5 1/2 months old in this picture.
Ally is 4 1/2 months old.
Cosette is 1 month old.

You can't see Ally's pants, but she could barely keep them on.
Cosette's were quite tight on her.
Lucy's arms and legs are too long for the outfit and the pants and shirt were tight on her.

The differences in the 3 girls has been fun for me to see. Lucy and Cosette have the same body build. Lucy is actually weighing in heavier than Cosette was and is also longer than she was.

I love my girls. Such a blessing. Having 4 kids is something else. There is always something going on and I love it! Even when it involves Ben being a tornado! That is what makes my day just that "my day".

Same outfit different beauties

They all have their own distinct looks. Lucy and Ally's personalities show very well, but I think Cosette had just woken up and was not in the mood for a photo shoot.

I love these beautiful girls. They have all brought different smiles to our faces. They have very different personalities and are wonderful daughters. Girls are so fun and I love the fact at even such a young age they love to help.

A fun, cold morning.

So this morning I got the crazy idea to take the kids for a walk. Our bike trailer can also be a stroller. I was thinking, I can probably fit all 3 kids in there. I think it might be nice for a walk. Then I got an even brighter idea: just do a bike ride! After Lucy was fed, I loaded the kids in the trailer, pjs and all. Then covered them with a heavy fleece blanket. Ally was the only one willing to keep her hat on. I then put the cover on the trailer so they wouldn't get the wind in their face and we were off. I will say, pulling 90 lbs is HARD!! It was a great workout and the kids enjoyed it. The last 5-10 minutes Ally started saying she was cold, so maybe next time I'll throw another blanket in there with them.

Cutie Lucy

Matt and I both had to go to a worldwide training meeting Saturday morning, so we took Lucy with us and left Ben and Ally home with Grandma and Papa.

Plainfield Reception

So we didn't have a photographer for Friday night and didn't know that until he didn't show up.
So I took what pictures I could.
Tahnee and her favorite teacher.
Sarah and Tahnee (oh and Grayson Sarah's baby).
Tahnee & Ben
Once again the kids had lots of fun dancing. This time I think they had even more fun because they had more kids there.
Ben and Ally dancing.
Aunt Tiffney dancing with Link, Ben and Ally.
Tahnee and her bowl of ice cream.

Tahnee's long time friends.
More longtime friends.
I think they were having fun.
