Sister Photo Shoot

My girls LOVE the camera and the other night they wanted me to snap away so I did...  Here's a few of my favorites 








Not my finest work but the lighting in my kitchen is terrible at night!  That's ok I still think they are pretty cute silly little girls!

Hair Potion from your kitchen

Many of you know we have LOTS of hair at our house.  It is long and curly and beautiful (if I do say so myself).  But it requires a LOT of work.  Lots of conditioning and combing out and wetting it down and trying to tame the wildness that abounds each time the weather changes. 


 I finally found products that work great.  Mixed Chicks is amazing but we still battle dryness in the cold, cold winter.  
So when I happened to watch a random episode of The Doctors I was thrilled they were talking about things like dry hair and skin etc.....  
I whipped up the dry hair potion and tried it on both girls.  
It is just olive oil, 1/2 a banana, 1/2 an avocado, and an egg.  I painted it on their hair with a pastry brush and let it sit for 20 minutes.  Then I just shampooed and conditioned as normal.  I didn't notice a huge difference after one treatment but I plan to do this easy treatment once a week.  Who knew you could get beautiful hair from your kitchen!

What are your beauty secrets?

Your True Identity



I was preparing my lesson for Young Women's today and I found this video that I really wanted to share.  I hope it touches you as it did me.

Got Milk?

In an attempt to feed my children more balanced meals I added milk to Kayton's lunch the other day and I loved that she was WAY cuter than any of those other "Got Milk" ads so I thought I would post my own!

Worst Blogger Ever!

If there were an award for worst blogger ever I think that I should be nominated.  Well as it goes in the blogging world I suppose I could just nominate myself and if I was a really good blogger I could even make my own button but alas I am the worst blogger ever so I cannot make my own button.  Just in case anyone still checks my blog I will post a little year end review (which will mainly include a review of what has been going on the past few months around here)


We went to a few football games....





We went to Las Vegas with children in the rain.... what were we thinking??
I went to Notre Dame it was beautiful and old and it rained there too! 
We got three new cousins this year.....

    
I just realized why I quit blogging my computer is slow and I get so frustrated I just want to break things which I found counterproductive!


I digress......


We wrote letters to Santa


Some of us tried to learn how to drive.....



I will admit that 2010 was a great year.  Jeff and I lost almost 100 pounds (combined).  We are very blessed and count those blessings each and everyday.  I know 2011 will bring challenges and smiles and I look forward to each and every one!

Happy New Year Everyone!
