Brynne's new look

Brynne is starting to act so grown up, so she needed a big girl haircut! (This is the only picture I could get her to smile in roughly 200 tries)
little miss attitude!
After we put her down to bed, she woke back up after a couple hours, so Taylor went in and found her in Dane's crib. (He was in the pack and play in our room luckily)He decided to just let her stay in there and gave her a kiss on the forehead. What he got was not only a kiss, it was a mouth full of vasaline. This girl has vasalinedar or something, she ALWAYS finds it and puts it in her hair. This time was the worst of all, though it probably took 15 washes with dish soap and clarifying shampoo to get it all out, and its still looking a little greasy! Hopefully soon her haircut will have the no grease look again.

What a weekend!!

Last weekend my amazing husband took time off work to watch the kids so I could go to St. George with my awesome friends from Vernal!! I left all guilt for leaving Taylor with the kids and had such a great weekend! These girls are so fun, and I have known some of them for 14 years and some for 22 years! Its so great being with girls who have know you at your most awkward perm and big bangs stage of life and still love you, there is nothing that bonds quite like having your most embarrassing moment in Junior high together, or being there with you when you first get pulled over by a "scary" cop for the first time, and not to forget my first group date, yup you guessed these girls were there! What a blessing that we are still able to get together and talk about everything :)

Typical Dynelle hiding our Olive garden device thing in the bushes so we could go shopping while waiting a hour for our turn to be seated, haha! "Dione, why would I put it in the car when I can put it in the bushes??"
We had so much fun going out to dinner, shopping, chatting, doing face masks and pedicures, hanging out at the pool, eating lots of junk food, staying up until 3:00 a.m....sleeping in until 9:00, well at least I slept in :) Thanks to Chalices husband for getting his works condo for us!

Meanwhile taylor was dealing with this....
and this....
and this .....
Just in case I wasnt a spoiled enough lady, when I got home Taylor had a surprise for me! A portable dishwasher, are you kidding me!!!??? Its been 2 1/2 years without one and I guess Taylor couldnt take the complaining any more, haha! What a FABULOUS husband I have, I am one happy girl :)

One year older and wiser too...

Happy Birthday to you (DAD/GRANDPA!) We hope you have a fabulous day!

One story about my dad that will help you know how great he is: I was in Chicago for a internship when I was 22. I drove there by myself from Rexburg in September. Four months later, I was going to drive home by myself also, but since the weather was bad, my dad flew out to Chicago, just to turn around and drive three days back to California with me.

I have NEVER been on such terrible roads, there were cars that had slid off the road every few miles. It was a three day drive home and I was sooo grateful that he would come and get me, keep me safe, and listen to the Harry Potter books on CD with me and be so selfless!

At one point we stopped at a store, and it was snowing so my dad dropped me off at the door while he went and parked. This didn't surprise me because he is the most considerate person you have ever met! I was used to him doing this sort of thing all growing up, but this considerate action was in stark contrast to how I had been treated by a guy I dated in Chicago. From that moment on in my dating life I looked for the type of guy who would do things like drop off others at the door while they went and parked!

I have many stories like this about my dad, he is amazing!! (And a fabulous grandpa)

Love ya Dad!!
