Thanksgiving outing

Uncle Chase took us horse back riding!
Reese found the dirt/poop/pee of the arena enjoyable, yuck!
Sweet sisters!
Roping, and got it on the first try! Cowgirl Blake!

We had Dan with us for 12 hours before dropping him at the Ontario, CA, airport on the way to St George for Thanksgiving. We got to stay at my Aunt Karen's house and hang with Weston and Veronica. Uncle Chase took us horse back riding and the girls loved it! Blake tried some roping and got it on the first try. She even learned how to "steer" a horse. I picked Dan up on Thanksgiving day and brought him back to the family. Unfortunately we returned him to the airport the following day. We went to St George to be a part of my brother's, Chase, baby's blessing.

The trip could have been longer but Dan had a show in Las Vegas so we dropped him off and visited an old college room-mate, Leslie. She has 2 boys that my girls had a great time playing with.

After that I was forced to stop off at a store and get a pacifier. Layne was NOT thrilled with being back in the car seat. And I needed something to help keep me awake. The soda and junk food I consumed amounted to far more calories than I would like to imagine.

Anyhow, we're back and looking forward to heading out of town in 2 weeks!

Hair cuts

I love getting my hair cut! It's so nice to have that healthy feeling and it's nice to have someone massage my scalp.

Well, tonight Kelsey Summerhays came over and not only gave me a trim I had been long over-due for, but also Kohl AND Reese AND Blake! Reese badly needed a trim. She looks homeless or mother-less most days. I hope this hair trim will help her out a bit. As for Blake she knew just what she wanted! We talked about cutting her hair at the beginning of the summer, then again at the end of the summer. So here we are months later finally getting her hair cut. each time we talked about cutting it we'd bring up the idea of donating. I guess I put it off for so long because I've been quite hesitant to cut her beautiful hair off. She looks so darling when it's curled, and the curl will hold for days.

Well....we did it! Cut off nearly 10 inches! It's to her shoulders just how she wanted it! She really wanted strait bangs across her forehead, but that's where I drew the line! She loves her hair. And it will just keep growing and we'll keep cutting it! I really hope this shorter length will be easier to wash, brush and manage. She's always hated having her hair washed and brushed, ugh!

Here' the girls!

AND Blake!
