More stuff

Yesterday we took the girls to the dentist. I was nervous about Elle because last time she freaked out. She wouldn't even open her mouth, no pictures...nothing. So I "let" Eli be with her while I was with Blynn.
Elle acted excited about going and we told her again what would happen etc.... her attitude changed the minute we got there. Great!
Good news? Elle ended up letting them take two pictures (of the four) and then she let them clean her teeth.
Sure enough with good news comes bad right? Bad news. At least 8 cavities, some needing caps. We're talking surgery center now. Put her out and get all the work done in one shot. $$$. More bad news? They would have completely covered it if she was four or under. When did I call and make appointments to get them in??? September. When is Elle's b-day. :) September. Sigh........
She is definately our expensive child.
By the way Blynn did great as always and has one area to be watched, but looks good. Greatful for that blessing!! :)

Wish I could post pics but since my computer is out of commission thats going to have to wait! Sorry grama!

Last night we took the girls out for ice cream and was on our way home when I saw this teeny dog run out in the street. Looked more like a piece of garbage flying across the street! I told Eli to slow down and with four lanes of traffic we thought that we would see this poor puppy's life come to an end! (Utah drivers aren't known for their awesome driving) Seeing him run around cars he darts into oncoming traffic and comes to the aid of another puppy.....who had just been hit!!! It was so sad! Its poor little tail was still moving and he was shaking.... As if that wasn't enough (sorry we were driving really slow) a big surburban drives over the top of both! BUT.... it cleared them!
My girls were pretty traumatized. Then later they asked if the dog was still in the street. So sad. It had a collar on, so it was somebody's.

Oh and for more excitement, we had our scare yesterday as well. We had just gotten home and Eli took Ava out of her car seat. He went back into the bedroom to change her pants and I hear him say "Kristin she's not breathing!!" Nothing can drop your heart like that! At first I was hoping he was just kidding, but as I met him coming back down the hall I could tell she wasn't and her face was red. I was sick! I just blew in her face to see if she would gasp and she did. It was too scary! When she eats she "forgets" to breathe, but she's never done this before! Made me not want to sleep very bad last night.

Ava just past her six weeks old mark on Tuesday. Time is flying by way too quick! She is getting chunky. Her hair is getting lighter too. But she is still a popular girl in our house! :)

Oh Elle.

Yesterday I was running earrands at Wal-mart. I just had to run in and grab a couple of things. In, out, and back home. It of course being the week before Christmas, was packed. Everyone and their dog was there. I was eyeing the frozen food section :) for a quick idea for dinner. Out of my sub-conscience I hear Elle talking. Then it registered. "Look Mom!! A PIRATE!!"

Couple second delay..........

I look down the aisle in front of me, (coming my way) and sure enough.... a gentleman was wearing a an eye patch. He kind of had a little smirk, but also a look of "what are you going to say?"

Turn down nearest aisle. ASAP.

Tell Elle not to say another word about anyone she sees.

*side note* the time it took to type this, I really just ruined the mac n cheese. It was cooking on the stove. I forgot about it. Lets just say its REALLY done. :) Anyone hungry?!! lol!

Have your kids ever made you blush in public?!! Tell me about it!

She's 7!

WOW!! I can't believe that my little girl is 7 already! Time has really flown! Seven years ago we were wondering when and if our little angel would really come. It took over 28 hours for her to finally make her arrival. And she still didn't want to come!
She is a blessing in our life. She is our sensitive one. Always looking out for everyone else, she has a very caring personality. BrookLynn we love you so much and we are glad that you are a part of our family!!! Love you Brookie-babe!!
She gets to celebrate for a couple days, so that certainly puts a smile on her face!!

Odds 'n Ends from Thanksgiving

I didn't get my camera out much during thanksgiving. So sad!!

The girls did some serious hula-hoopin! It was very entertaining to watch. :) Elle grasped the concept very quickly. If any of you have watched Drum Line (I think thats what its called) Where there is this kid trying to try out for the line. And he plays one of the bigger know how he really uses his hips? Shakin back and forth, well this is what Elle did....except she would be on her tip toes doing it! It was SO cute!! Oh, not to mention the many different facial expressions! :)
Aunt Kacee treated them to 11pm. :) Which you can see they really enjoyed! Bottom right pic shows the proof. Yes, we sloppped the piggies that night. Ha!

Ava's first flight!

And last but not least, Ava got lots of loving from family. One of her biggest fans is her cousin Matty. Oh it was really cute! She called her "baby Eva". She spent lots of time cuddling, talking to her, watching her, and showing her pictures she drew. She even came in and said "I love you so much baby Eva!" Very cute.
