New 'Do

Lexie loves to do her little sisters' hair, and here's her current favorite way to do Annie's hair. She flat irons it to get it straight like this. It takes about an hour because Annie has sooooo much hair, but the both love the way it looks. Unfortunately, it doesn't last long because the second it gets wet, poof! The curls are back. Fortunately it's adorable curly too!

Black Belt!

In May, Ellie tested for and received her first degree black belt in karate. We're very proud of her. This has taken her years of effort and plenty of pain to accomplish. Way to go, girl!


This is a picture of Emily and Ashlyn and their friend Cece just hanging out at the house we were in before this one. Cece and her family were our neighbors and we really miss seeing them everyday, but we'll still see the kids (they have 7 kids) for playdates!

I'm Back!

It's been weeks since I'm had a chance to blog, but I'm finally settled enough to blog again. For those of you who don't know, we moved to the new house. Yeah! It's so wonderful to be here and to have room to stretch out and breathe. The kids have already made several friends in the neighborhood and I think we'll be happy here. The landscaping crew started this morning and in about 3 weeks we should have a yard. It's costing us a small fortune to landscape about half of our couple of acres (the rest is being left wooded) so I hope it turns out well. I'll take pictures and post them soon!
