Phone Photos

I can't seem to find our camera. I know it's somewhere, but just don't know where that somewhere is. So, here are a few pics from my phone from lately.

Here is a cute one with his favorite kind of hat, his shirt.

Grant got his hair cut.
Things I liked about the lady who cut his hair:
1) She didn't attack him. She was really patient with him and took her time when he was squirmy.
2) The price was better than the last time we got his haircut.
Things I didn't like:
1) The haircut. It's not that it's bad, but she cut so much off the top, and so it looks kinda funny. Oh well, my mom said the difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is two weeks. Let's hope.

One more thing... he learned how to climb onto the couch today. It's so cute. He loves Backyardigans (picture to follow for those who don't know) and we record it everyday. It's the only TV I let him watch (because I like it!), so he'll sit like a "big boy" when he's being a "good boy" (like the picture) -because I'm trying to teach him that when he's "bad" (for lack of a better term) he doesn't get rewarded with TV- and watch his TV show... so cute.

When I was in Utah, we took a fun trip to Cabela's.
I think this is my favorite! haha

So, my mom is half way done with her chemotherapy treatments. She got this super cute wig, and before we cut her hair a few weeks ago, we all took turns putting the wig on. What do you think? Should I chop the hair off and go blond? haha NEVER! I look so bad as a blond. I'll keep the long dark hair that I am used to. Some people can do both blond and dark (Ben's sisters), and some can do short or long hair. I am a length changer, not a color changer. I have only "colored" (by that I mean highlighted my hair with my natural highlights) only THREE times in my life. But anyway, thought everyone might enjoy this funny picture of me.

So I decided to participate in the local Tea Party. Ben had class, but he made a shirt that read,


I almost cried when I saw all the support we got from everyone (someone said around 800 people?). It was very peaceful, and I feel like I helped out our great nation in a small way. Here is me and Grant holding our sign. Tons of people liked the sign and asked to take a picture of it! Enjoy!

"If I had a million dollars..."

"...I'd buy you a monkey! (haven't you always wanted a monkey?!)"

So I am a huge slacker, and I only took 1 picture of Grant while we were in Utah. Actually, it wasn't even in Utah, it was on the ride home from Utah in the truck. Sorry for those of you who live to see pictures of the cutest boy in the world, but you'll have to wait till we get back on the picture taking band wagon.

I've decided that I am going to start posting things I would buy if I had the money... maybe some cool sponsor will see my blog (yea right, I have like 4 people who look at it) and maybe they'll get it for me :) haha With that said, my birthday is coming up! So what better way to prepare than to make a wish list of things!? Some are for Grant, and some are for me. Enjoy.

This first picture is the coolest bedding ever. I wouldn't want it for me, but for Grant. It's from Land Of Nod. It's on sale, so maybe I'll just save my pennies for Christmas or something... isn't it so awesome!?

This is a convertible bed from IKEA. I love this one, and I must own it! haha Again, a Christmas present for Grant or something.

Alright, now for me. The bike thing is a sensitive topic. Let me explain! I have been wanting a bike FOREVER! I never got my own bike growing up (boo hoo) because what money conscience parent would give their middle child their OWN bike?! haha A family friend gave Ben and I an awesome bike trailor/stroller that is amazing, but I could only use the stroller part on the bike path. So I have been asking for a bike for a while now. Then, while at my parents recently, my dad gave Ben his old broken ten speed. Ok, but now Ben has a bike, and I am still without. My dad even told Laurel he would buy her another new bike if she gave me hers, and her responce was that of the youngest child, "no." So here I am, still without a bike. I think these last two things are things I would die for this year for my birthday (rather than be run over by my father... see post last year on April 27).

CHACOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone knows me, they know I LIVE in my chacos. My amazing sister gave me two pairs when I was 16, and I have worn them for miles and miles. My red chacos have been to Hawaii 3 times, they've hiked some of the most remote canyons and trails in Southern Utah, and they have given me the most amazing tan lines ever. Here's the problem... my red chacos are actually too big. I have made them work, but hiking in them is kinda scary now. My feet slip in them and I have fallen a few times because my feet weren't solid on the ground. So my other birthday wish is for a new pair of chacos. Ok, now if any of these companies read my blog, I will love you forever if you send me some my way!
