A Winter's Day in Arizona

I know my kids are pretty scroungey in these pictures, but I couldn't resist the oppertunity to show off a typical, beautiful, Febuary day here in Arizona- that and I want to be able to look back in two months and remind myself why I'm tolerating the heat.

Viva Las Vegas

It's a little late but I didn't want to forget about our mini vacation to Las Vegas. Kyle had a business trip there and so last minute we decided to throw the kids in the car and drive up with him. I was reluctent because we had quite a few things that we had to rearrange, but as soon as we got there I knew it was worth it. I love Las Vegas- well, Henderson anyway. Kyle was a little busy with something called responsibilites, but thanks to Jake, Amy and Luke, who were such wonderful hosts, the kids and I had a blast. The highlight was by far BouncU!

The many shades of beauty

Just thought I would document all of Licity's creative ways of wearing "lip gloss" (a.k.a. paint, nail polish, markers and mascara). It's been an obsession that I thought she would have gotten over by now, but she continues to amuse me. I may need to be concerned that she seems to favor black.

After painting her own lips she decided to also paint Maci's head-poor Maci.

Licity in... hmm? What exactly is that?

Really... Blue?

Take this test!
You're blue — the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you'd rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn't that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they're soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before coming to a decision. That level-headed, thoughtful approach to life is patently blue — and patently you!
