First haircut

I have never felt a need to cut Gracie's hair except she had this curl or two in the back that were longer than the others. It sorta looked like a tail.
So aunt Ashley cut it while she was playing with Sam and I don't think she ever even knew what was happening. Sam was having a good time too...
Until Gracie growled at him.

These pictures of baby Sam pretty much sum up my feelings the past few days.
"I am so ready to have this baby! Things are good, I got so much done and I am ready."

Then I look around the house some more, or think of one more thing.
"I am so not ready, but my body is ready to be done."

How quickly feelings can change.

It is getting together with family. This is my oldest brother, Kent's family. We got to make the trek out to Phoenix again because like my sister in law, my niece got baptized.

Here is beautiful Alexis giving Connie a hug. She wasn't crazy about the jumpsuit, but she looked beautiful. I am so happy she has the gospel of Jesus Christ in her life. I have said it before and I will say it again - forever, it is my peace, comfort, and joy.

William wore his boots and brought a walking stick. Little boys can be so cool, they can also be really disruptive during a baptism.

After it was over we went to get some ice cream, and I was happy about that. This baby inside me has a sweet tooth. It was also my mothers birthday that day and somehow I managed not to get a picture of her. Go figure.

While he is gone

Gracie plays with her friend Elliot

And they play so well together.

She watches whatever movie she wants without William's input.

She also reads, sings, and dances with her Cinderella doll that we saved from DI

She has dance parties with uncle Mark and puts Ashley's bracelets on.

She spends a lot of time putting on makeup she got for her birthday.

She lines up her toys and puts them all over the house.

I have really been loving this time I have had with her before the baby comes. Some lovely one on one time that I got with William, now I get to have it with her. It is fun having her home.

A little late

Last week was my sister, Connie's birthday. It was a great day. The day after the book Mockingjay came out. We have been waiting for that book to come out for a year. Connie's plan was to eat at the three sister restaurants that give you a free meal on your birthday. I decided to do that with her since I love those restaurants. Joe's Farm grill for breakfast where I brought her these pillows and my sister in law Ashley and I made for her.

The pillows were a lot of fun to make. Then Ashley was kind enough to take Gracie while I went with Connie to her place and we read...until lunch. Then we went to Liberty Market, yum! A couple of friends met us there that had already finished the book. I am sure that was hard for them. Then Connie and I went to my house because it was time for William to come home. We put videos on for the kids so we could keep reading. Gracie assumed this awesome position.
Gracie loves her aunt Connie so much, and I am so glad that she has this relationship with her.

I know that her life will be better because of Connie in her life, just like mine.

Dinner time came all too fast and we met up with some of the family and Joe's Real BBQ. It was a very fun day that went by amazingly fast. Not a typical kind of day but one worthy of celebrating someone special.
Happy Birthday Connie!

cut it or brush it

I love Williams long hair, I really do. But the truth is, it is really hot and not fun to brush. Cause he wakes up looking like this

So one morning his options were to cut it, or brush it. He chose to cut it.

(doesn't it look like I have a pillow shoved under my shirt)

I didn't do an after shot but on the way to Gracie's first dance class we stopped by Williams school to drop of the snack. William was in the outdoor environment watering plants.

He showed us how it was done.

And let Gracie help. She thought it was so cool and did not want to leave.

Here they are giving hugs and William telling Gracie to have fun at dance. He was very excited for her. That was the first thing he asked about when he got in the car after school.

If you don't dance then your no friend of mine

The title of this post is obviously not true since I married a non-dancer, but I wish it was true.
I signed Gracie up for dance and I don't know who is more excited for it, her or me.

I mean look how cute she is in her leotard!!!!

Her first week went well. It is just out of the teachers homes and is very low key. I had to leave (go down stairs) quickly because she was obviously not going to listen with me there. She was just laying on the ground rolling around and being silly. I could hear the music and the teacher and it sounded fun. I wish I was in the dance class.
For her second class I let her wear her tu-tu. A lot of the other girls had skirts and I knew she would think it was fun. Holy moly she looked adorable. We stopped by Trader Joe's on the way there and everyone was commenting on how cute she was.

I was just laughing when I turned around to find her doing this

No wonder she wanted me to put it in her cart.

Here she is relaxing with a banana and a cowboy hat after class.

Doesn't she look so much older now that her hair is getting so long?
