So, I am in love with Pinterest lately and having it as an app on my iphone is seriously a problem! I may have to delete it because having it at my fingertips all day long is so bad.  But I came across these photography blogs and articles teaching you how to use your camera etc.  I have an okay camera, and I learned I actually have some of these features and was able to play around with the shutter speed etc. It was fun. You may not notice a difference, but I did!  I feel like I got a new camera!

Happy December 1st!!

I can't believe December is already here! I am full on sick right now, and the weather was cold and windy today, just as things should be! I could hardly get out of bed today and get my kids off to school, then I came home, and have no recollection of making Addy pancakes, before her and I climbed into my bed for a small nap! It would have been the perfect day had I not been cold and achy and hacking up my lungs!

So in love with this. . . .  I finally caved and bought the iphone 4 when my cheap phone was dying and I think I may be in love.

I took pictures!

So I realized the other day that I haven't taken pictures of my gorgeous girls in a while, so here are some updates. Hailey is at the computer doing homework and is an amazing kid.  Her BFF is Liberty and she is over here about once a week. McKenzie is loving kindergarten, finally and has these two girlfriends that she pals around with. Addy is loving the one on one Mommy time all day while her sisters are at school. She is a bit of a bully to her sisters though.

New to me

Loving Pinterest, but it's making me a bit depressed at all the things I will never do or create or make!! I wish I was more creative and had tons of money!!

Hailey and Locks of Love

So, Hailey decided to cut her hair and we suggested she donate it to Locks of Love, she was so excited that some little girl was going to get her hair. She is and always has been such a sweet kid!

A long Overdue post!

First day of school!
All smiles, until it was time to say goodbye

Little Getaway to Oceanside

My mom and I took the girls to Oceanside for a few nights this summer. It was fun and relaxing!
Sweet little McKenzie is so shy, and was actually letting me take pictures of her!

Side note:

My blog has locked me out for the last several months not letting me post anything for some crazy reason, so I did make this Birthday Post for me sweet Peanut the day or two after her birthday, but it just got saved and never posted, It's not that I forgot this very important milestone!  Now that I am back in, much more to come on summer and the first day of school!!!

My First Born turns 7!

On July 9th 2004 at 1:11 am, I became a first time mom. I was scared, excited and already exhausted after pushing for 2 hours. But, Hailey Mckay entered the world and our lives and we have literally never been the same. I think Heavenly Father makes your first born very sweet and easy so you have more, at least that is what he did for me. Hailey was the easiest child, which I am sure means she will be a nightmare for us as a teenager. I love this kid more than I thought possible. She is a smart, sweet, responsible child. We are so lucky we get her. 7 years have gone by in a blink, but she has made it a pure joy. I love you Hailey, thanks for taking it easy on me and preparing me for your sisters!!

Summer so far . . .

Summer so far has been pretty uneventful, it has been filled with playing with neighborhood kids, swim lessons, and relaxing at home. Above was McKenzie's eye appt. She falls about 5 times a day and runs into various walls, door knobs and chairs, so her Dr. suggested we take her to the Childrens Eye Institute to rule that out. She is fine, a little far sided for a 5 year old, but nothing they want her to wear glasses for. Guess she is just clumsy!
Addy loves the water and never wanted to get out. Here she is swimming with her daddy on the 4th of July at a family party.
McKenzie stays pretty close to the edge and steps. Didn't learn much from swim lessons!
Hailey has tons of confidence with her floaties on! Loves the water.
Modeling the new swim suits for the year.
The famous Mean Face from Addy. I get this look daily.
Father's Day all dressed up for Daddy in the same dresses. Love these girls, they are my life.

Summer has begun!

So far our summer days have been filled with dentist appointments, eye doctor appointments, birthday parties, a DMV visit and so forth. Not so fun, but we are hoping to improve this situation soon. As we drove home from one of these said appointments in Riverside yesterday, the girls were asking questions about my dad, so we made a stop at the cemetary on the way home. It was fun to tell them things about their grandpa that they don't know and teach them all about cemetaries.
