Hair Affair - Part 2

Hi there! I know you've all been waiting to see my curls. Since my parents obviously weren't going to be posting these pictures anytime soon, I thought I'd end your waiting and post them here myself.

Taking the rollers out was a lot of fun, but when I first saw my new hairstyle I wasn't quite sure if I liked it. However, once I got over the initial shock I was pretty pleased with how fabulously curly it looked. Here's a shot from behind so you can see all my curls.

And here's a view from the top.

As usual, my parents went way overboard with taking pictures. I kept thinking to myself: you can't possibly want to take more pictures. I mean, do you not realize we have somewhere to go?

After what felt like endless picture-taking, I decided to call on my fairy godmother for help. And wouldn't you know it, she finally came through for a change (it was about time).

Now that I've finally got her working for me, I'll have to ask her again about making Nala come to life.

Well, that's all for today. You better stop surfing the Internet and get back to work. I won't take the blame for you slacking off on the job.

Hair Affair - Part 1

A few weeks ago we took Ava to see a chemistry magic show down at BYU that Aunt Betsy (Krista's sister) invited us to. Ava decided to style her hair for her big night out on the town.

She had a fun time playing with her hair accessories while waiting with her curlers in for her hair to dry.

However, she soon started to get bored with all the waiting around.

And eventually she got really bored. Ah, the price of beauty.

Finally, it was time to move to her bathroom in preparation for taking out her curlers.

Ava really liked sitting on the counter top.

And she was especially excited to discover that her friend in the mirror had her hair in curlers as well.

To be continued...

Sophia's Blessing

Last Sunday, we attended the blessing of Ava's cousin, Sophia Elizabeth. She looked absolutely beautiful in her blessing dress.

Following the blessing, we went to a luncheon at Preston and Liz's house. The food was delicious and we were able to visit with lots of family and friends.

Ava was very excited to see baby Sophia and we know that Ava, Annissa, and Sophia will be great friends.

In other news, Elder Danny Furr was recently transfered to Grand Falls on the island of Newfoundland. From what we hear, they get 15-20 feet of snow there each year, so send Elder Furr warm thoughts.

My First Halloween

After weeks of waiting, Halloween finally came. I wasn't really sure what would prove to be so special about Halloween, but I did know one thing: I would finally get to wear my witch costume.

My parents decided to take me to Gardner Village so they could take my picture next to some big pumpkins. I think you'll agree I looked much better in the witch costume than Lily Mae would have.

Unfortunately for me, they just kept taking picture after picture. This was kind of boring, but what's a girl to do?

Then the rest of my cousins arrived with Aunt Maddie. Seth was dressed up as Winnie the Pooh, Luke was a Power Ranger, Annissa was a ladybug, and Sophie was Pooh's pot of honey. Annissa and Sophie were both sleeping so their mommies had to hold them.

Note to self: pretending to be asleep can get you out of endless picture-taking.

Just when I thought the picture-taking was over, Annissa decided to wake up. So then we had to start all over again. Thank goodness Sophie was smart enough to keep sleeping. I just wish I had thought of that.

Then my mommy and daddy wanted pictures with me too.

At this point, I was beginning to think I should have let Lily Mae be the witch after all.

Just when I thought I couldn't possibly bare to pose for another picture, I noticed some ducks floating around in a pond. I kept looking for Donald, but couldn't spot him. In the meantime, my mom was trying in vain to get me to look at the camera.

Finally the pictures ended and we left to do some strange activity called trick-or-treating. It basically consisted of my parents walking me from one interesting place to another, but never letting me down to explore. At each place we went to we collected these brightly-colored little toys in a bag, but I was not allowed to ever play with them. What a tease! And I thought the picture-taking was frustrating. I'm staying home next year. Lily Mae can have her witch costume.
