New do

If you've known me for a while, you've noticed I don't change my hair very often. I've changed color a few times, but I always go back to my old faithful blond. Monday, after much encouragement from Isaac, I went and got my hair done and this is the result. I really like it, it's just weird not to have long hair.


We had a great Christmas this year. My brother Andy and family were able to come from Utah and spend the week with us. The girls had a lot of fun together. It rained almost all week so we were stuck at home a lot, but the kids did really well together.
We went to my sister in law Amanda's mom's house for Christmas Eve and had a special guest. The kids all got to make sure Santa knew what they wanted. The only bad part was that most of them changed their minds and asked for something else.
This is the first picture I have of Lexi with Santa that she is not crying in. She's always been pretty scared of him.
Aaron was more interested in the candy cane than Santa.
They all even got a gift from Santa. They had a great time. Thanks Barbara and Kevin for having us over. We had so much fun.

The girls looked so cute in their Christmas jammies. They were all patiently waiting for me to wake up. I'm not a morning person.
Lexi also turned 5 on Christmas. It's hard to believe my baby is already 5. She is turning into a beautiful, hard headed little girl and we are so grateful for her.

Let's catch up

This is all super out of order and I don't know how to fix it so I hope it make sense. Aaron had his surgery yesterday. We woke up at 3am and drove home from Cali to make it to the hospital by 9am. He did so well. He slept most of the day afterward and his eyes are swollen, but he is pretty happy. He doesn't like the vasoline-like drops I have to put in, but other than that we're just hoping it worked. His eyes are still a little crossed, but the doctor said it might take a few days.
This is him right after we got home. He refused to wake up at the hospital so they just let us come home. They were really busy and needed us out of the room. He finally woke up about 2 hours after we got home and has been eating ever since.
This is just a super cute picture of my niece Malia after the funeral that is mentioned below. Aaron and Malia were talking to each other. It was adorable.

My grandfather passed away last Friday so we drove to California Tuesday morning. He was a great man and I was so lucky to have him in my life. We were very lucky that we could all go visit him this summer. He will be greatly missed.

Lexi and Alli went to a princess party for their cousin Emma last weekend. They wanted to make sure I put a picture on my blog so everyone could see how pretty they looked.
Allison finally got her big girl bed. She still looks so tiny in it. She really enjoys jumping on it and has already broken her box spring.

Isaac's health has been pretty good. His mass is still the same size, but it hasn't gotten any bigger. Oh and he decided to grow a beard. I hate it, but he still won't shave it. Feel free to comment on how much you hate it as well. Maybe we can collectively get him to shave it.

I have been pretty busy the last few weeks. I've been planning Lexi's 5th birthday party. We are having it tomorrow at a park so I hope the weather stays nice. I got a job at the Children's Place so I've been gone nights. It's awesome though because I get 30% off. I think that's about it for us. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season so far.
