Avaree is getting so big, it really is going so fast! she is 9 months this month and she is standing up by herself on anything she can pull herself up onto. It's crazy! She'll be walking before I know it!
Okay, I know what you're thinking, and I am not a pageant mom! But we did enter our girls into a pagent just for fun, and amazingly they both won the grand queen in their divisions-which is the highest thing they had. They gave us 2 free nights for each girls so 4 total nights at a 5 star resort in palm springs to go to Nationals in July, we aren't sure we are going, but we thought it was really awesome they both won! My camera died partway through the pageant, so I don't have the best pic's and I don't have any of Olivia in her dress, so I'll have to get some hopefully from mindy, or Lex! We really had a lot of fun though!
We got a new addition to our family! This is Boston our chihuahua! She is 8 weeks old now and the kids are in love with her! She is hardly like a dog, more like another child that is easier to potty train and can eat all by her self, so I love her! She weighs 1.2 lbs and will get to be between 3 and 5 lbs. She's fun to have around!
So we had an 80's birthday party for Brandon and we had such a great turnout! I loved every ones costumes they were totally fabulous! I had games and activities planned, but so many people showed up that we all just hung out and laughed at the great 80's outfits! The kids got to do the Disco Ball pinata and loved it! I didn't get as many pic's as I wanted, but we had a good time. I made the disco ball by the way, and I was kind of sad to let the little kids break it apart, but that's what I made it for and it really was awesome! I hope everyone had fun dressing up and hanging out. Next time be prepared for twister and some 80's trivia! Brandon had Mindy shave the sides of his hair so it was a mow hawk/mullet thing and it was so awesome!
Brandon's birthday was last month and we went to a little narrows hike on the Dixie rock here in Saint George. The kids had a blast hanging out with dad and doing one of his favorite activities- Hiking. If none of you have ever been to the little narrows- it's a really tight squeeze but it's really cool if you can fit through it! There are spots where you get stuck sideways and can't move except a few inches at a time. It was super fun. The kids loved it! Aunt Mindy and Grandma and Grandpa joined us for the fun activity. Then we went back to the house and had cake and ice cream! Happy Birthday Brandon!
