Michelle Turns 10 Today:)

Today is


Michelle's 10th birthday!!!!


I can't believe how time flies by!


I remember so much of when she was a baby,


and now look at her she is just about 5 feet tall


and just as fun as can be!


She loves her friends, and going to school,


and loves to be with her family!


She loves her brothers and sister and likes to boss them around.


Michelle got to do cheerleading this last semester and I think we are going to continue with that!


She is our oldest and we love her, she is so special to us and we are grateful everyday that we have her with us!

Mother Daughter Hair Day!

Today we took a Mother/Daughter day! Yep, I took Michelle out of school early...come on don't judge me...it should have been a half day, I mean it's the day before Thanksgiving, they have half days all the time! Anyway, I won't go on! So all the girls needed hair cuts Michelle hates her hair at least that is what she tells me every time she brushes or combs it, or anything else, like looks in a mirror! So we went short, not as short as she would have likes but short enough that she is happy! I got a cut and color but there are no pictures, that is something I wouldn't mind not being documented! The most exciting thing about this day is that it was Emie's first hair cut! Yes I know...she is almost 3 and this is her FIRST hair cut. Well let me tell you, we cut bangs in Michelle's hair when she was like 2 maybe younger and Michelle is well you could call it over reactive about things. So I am trying to raise Emie a bit different! Michelle is a long story and I don't think this is the time!!

Here is Michelle happy!

So cute.
Emie's before...I love her head with her "Pooh Bear Ear" ponies! They look like Winnie the Pooh's ears!

Emie's hair is CRAZY! If I don't do it, it will look like this or worse. I constantly have to say "Where is your face" and she takes both hands and moves her hair out of her eyes...and nose...and mouth!

Getting ready! She is not happy at this point!

Look at the ground, why? I can't see what you are doing down there!

Why does mom keep taking pictures?

The blow dry part! Still not so happy!



And here it is...Isn't it soo cute? Come on just look at the hair, she is still mad, oh and really tired, she just about fell asleep right here!

and the back view!

and here they are together. I have such cute girls!

Two Cards:)

In October both my mom and Justin's dad have birthday's 2 days apart. Drew and Cyndi were in town for his B-day this year and the kids decided to go-in-on a birthday gift card, so he can buy himself a new church suit so I made this card to put the gift card in! It was fairly easy once Jessie told me I could do it, and then with Justin's mad run to Joann's to get matching thread and button. I really liked the card and I can't really tell you how my FIL liked it cause I don't' think he even noticed:(



Then this is the card I made my mom for her B-day a couple days later. My mom loves quilting and so I found this really simple but cute card for her. I then drove all the way over to Safford to hand deliver it to her! I am pretty sure she loved the card but I am positive the real gift was the surprise visit!

Funny Parker!


While shoveling dirt today the kids were commenting on the torn up American Flag at the neighbors house...

then the neighbors drove up and one of the guys got out of the car and

Parker said" Your flag is all torn up"

guy "that's not mine it's his, but it does look pretty bad doesn't it?"

Parker then said "That's not right you need to get a new one!"


They thought that was pretty funny...maybe we will get them a new one for Christmas, and have Parker deliver it!

Halloween Party!

So this Halloween Grandma Crockett decided it was time to have another Halloween Party! She had one a few years ago when there was only 6 grand kids! Now it is + 5 and that much crazier! Anyway the kids had a ton of fun ALL DAY! Grandma had activities that had the kids (and the mom's) busy the entire day! We painted pumpkins (the mom's opted for the less mess approach), we had a doughnut eating off a string contest. We had a fish tank with a TON of prizes, we had a pinata! We bobbed for apples and we also had a bean bag toss into a giant pumpkin that Grandpa Crockett made! "Old" Grandma Crockett came for the entire day too and had so much fun...I am sure she fell into bed that night! After all the activities Mom had the kids make their own pizza's for dinner and made some homemade root beer, the kids thought the dry ice was awesome! After the kids ate it was time for the costume parade, all the kids got dressed into their costumes and marched for "Old" Grandma! Then it was time to Trick-or-Treat! We went to so many houses that Ryan was begging to go back to Grandmas house. It didn't take that much longer for the rest of us to wimp out and go home too! After the trick-or-treating, we had a haunted house where the kids had to go out the the playhouse and retrieve an eye ball to receive a prize. That was really fun! Then to finish up Grandma Crockett made prizes for each of the kids for their costumes! It was a fun day...it seemed to take forever, but it was fun! Thanks Grandma Crockett for doing so much for the grand kids!


















My kids had an easy time deciding on what to wear for their costumes. Michelle wanted to be a vampire with a red dress a black cape a white face and fangs. She was very specific! Eli was a little easier, he wanted to be "Wolverine" from X-Men. Well his was a little hard, and you can tell from the looks of his costume. Better luck next time is all I can say for myself! Parker was sooo easy. He found a spiderman costume at D.I. and that was it, then talking to my Sis-in-law Karrie she mentioned she had a SM costume with the muscles well we went for that one! Emie also found her costume at D.I. She decided to be Winnie the Pooh, she was also Tigger and Piglet!
Michelle was being scary not mad!
Eli wasn't sure what to do!

Parker had it down!

Emie is just soo happy!

Primary Program!

Today our ward had their annual Primary Program. It was a great program all the kids new the words to the songs and their parts and they incorporated families into the program. It was the best program I have ever seen! But this isn't why I am posting this:

Today I was in the primary room and when I left Sister Bentley followed me out to tell me a funny story about Parker! We all know how much I love to hear stories about Parker, and if you don't know, It terrifies me! Anyway this is what she said!

Yesterday at the program practice Sister Crawford (the chorister) and Brother Ray (the Pianist) were trying to figure out how many times he would need to play a song to help the children remain quiet while the next class walked to the microphone for their parts. Well Brother Ray being a man just told Sister Crawford that he was going to play the song 3 times and that is all. Well at that point Parker raised his hand and Sister Crawford called on him to say what he needed to say and he said "someone needs to tell him to get along". Well Sister Bentley intervened at that point and asked Parker to tell her. So he said again..."someone needs to tell him to get along...that means he needs to be nice" Well Sister Bentley said who needs to be nice and he pointed to Brother Ray and said "the man at the piano". Sister Bentley loved that and laughed so hard. I thought it was pretty funny to! Parker will always say things I just hope they will keep being funny and not something that will terrify me!

Red Ribbon Week!

This week at school is red ribbon week! During this week at school the kids get to dress up or what ever the day brings. Well today was crazy hair day so this is what we did this morning!
They had fun deciding on what to do with their hair! Eli had this do last year but didn't like it, so I was surprised that this is what he wanted today! Parker wanted a Mohawk...I actually contemplated shaving a real mohawk but chickened out. I styled just a regular mohawk and he liked it then saw the other kids with all the ponies and said "now no one will laugh at my hair" so I told him I would do lots of ponies down the middle of his mohawk...he was happy and it was easy! Michelle has SOOOOOO much hair it is practically impossible to do and have it look decent so I just went at her hair with nothing in mind and this is what we got! She was happy with it and I figured that is the biggest win I'll have all day so I went with it! So my kids are wacky today and lovin' it!

Ok first of all these flowers were delivered to me just the other day! aren't they beautiful, A friend in my ward remembered my birthday and sent me these what a wonderful surprise...Thanks so much D'Ann!

So what do you think of Parker's suit for church today?

I happened to be at choir practice this morning and this is how he went to church. I did tie his shoes!


Eli earned his first belt loop in scouts a bowling award!



I wanted to do Emies hair in curlers, she wasn't very excited about it but whatever. I love her head!

Yea this isn't an after shot I forgot to do that the next morning! Sorry Monica she did look so cute too!

Eli is playing soccer for his extra activity this semester. We went through Young Champions of America and we will just have to wait and see if we like it!

Here he is running real fast!
