First Haircut

I know this is probably the oldest kid to have a "1st haircut" but my reason is this- the curls. I have been so scared to cut Greta's hair in fear of losing her beautiful blond curls. And it seems that everyone I mentioned this to said "oh yeah, I wouldn't do it" and then proceeds to tell me a story of their sister or niece that had curls until they were cut off. So my fears were thus reinforced-I mean could you cut those off? I don't think so.

Well the time has come, her hair had become increasingly difficult to brush out and fix so I made appointments for us with my friend Lynette. Lynette was so cute with her, she really won her over with her "aminal cape" and some sparkle spray for her hair-go figure. You can see how unsure she was in the 2nd picture, she was scared it was going to hurt, but by the end she was all smiles. She came home telling her little sis all about getting a haircut.

A little nervous...

New Pictures

We took some before pictures for the new babe Sunday and although I am totally uncomfortable posting pictures of myself, here you go. She is coming and will be here before we know it - and I am feeling completely unprepared, good thing Brock has Spring Break this week. We are going to work hard to get everything ready. This little girl is due on May 6th. So we'll see if Brock gets a new baby for his birthday or not!

We also had a little graduation dinner for Michael & Lauren. They both graduate soon and then are off to Washington D.C. where Michael will be working for Senator Hatch. We are very excited and proud of them
but also painfully sad that they are leaving....packing up the truck as I
write. Michael leaves tomorrow and Lauren next week. I don't know
what I will do without them & what my girls will do without them, they are so attached to Nornen & Michael. I've tried not to think about it
and now it's here. (I am starting to feel abandoned, 3 of my 4 sisters
will now be out of state.)
We will miss you more than I can say, we love you.

St. George

We spent a long weekend in St. George with the Holt's. The cousins had so much fun playing together and the weather was so nice. Very hard to come back to snow in SLC.
Needless to say the girls loved swimming. Elsa as usual is not afraid. She jumps right in-she is our water baby. She would walk all over the shallow end with no fear. Several times she got going too fast & would go down in the water. Brock would run over & pull her out and instead of crying and sputtering she'd squirm out of his arms to get back in. It was a little chilly and she was shivering like crazy but would cry if we even tried to take her out. She does the same thing when bath time is over.

Cute cousins
We also had wonderful watermelon & corn which my girls couldn't get enough of. Really, Greta started eating the rind.
