Hair Cuts

Taylor has had her bangs cut for a while, but I just haven't posted an official picture of her yet with her cute bangs. Maren got her hair cut a while a go as well, but I say better late than never right?

Blessed be
Author: unknown
Blessed be innocence, smiles from the heart,
Small dimpled fingers that take things apart,

Noses that wrinkle at spinach and such,
Eyes filled with wonder for they see so much.

Blessed be questions with no easy answers,
Bubble-bath swimmers and mud-puddle dancers,

Climbers and diggers and builders and bakers,
Dreamers and gigglers and up-at-dawn wakers.

Hearts that are gentle, wills that are strong,
Minds learning left from right and right from wrong

Blessed be hugs that wrap around your knees,
Sweet angel voices that sigh "Once more, Please?"

Blessed be, "Read me a story" and then,
Blessed be each whispered, "Bless me...Amen."

Blessed be sleepy eyes, each little yawn...
Blessed be childhood before it is gone.

We got a new play ground and the kids have just had a ball swinging on it, there are very few moments of the day that they aren't swinging. Taylor was in no mood for pictures so that's what all the grumpy faces are for in most of her pictures, but oh well...still a fun time.

P.S. Lauren is finally sitting up and actually letting me put her down now so life is GREAT :) I also took her into the doctor yesterday for her shots and she was 90% in height 20% in weight and 10% for her head :) she is the only one so far that has had that big of a gap between their weight and height. Also she was so sick last night from her shots she was up all night long just crying saying "my da da da da da" it was a pretty sad night, but we made it through it.

4th of July

We had so much fun this year for the 4th. We had a BBQ with my side of the family and we just let the kids run around and play until it was time for some fireworks. They had so much fun just hanging out and watching the fireworks with all of their cousins. Needless to say, It was a good day!
