I Haven't had Hair this Short Since I was a Toddler.

Here's me with my giant mass of hair. I went without a haircut, not even a trim, for seventeen months. Yes that's right, seventeen months. This particular photo must have been shot on a Friday, because for the entire school year I crimped my hair every Friday. (Except one in March when I forgot...)

Here's me with my giant mass of hair again. Except obviously it's not attached to my head anymore. The top of the braid was a good inch and a half in diameter. It was intense.

Ta Da!

"Sweet" Graduation Gift

Really though, it's oober rad. I won a free cake from a lady in my ward back in January at a Relief Society event. But that's when I was doing the no-sweets thing with my friends and then I lost track of time and blah blah she never made my cake. Anyway, she decided to surprise me with this fine work of art. It's fashioned after my Graduation Announcements. Thanks Margie!

Penelope Video: Bowls for Shoes

Don't worry, I washed them before using them with food.


At Scott's birthday party on Thursday, I made Chris, Scott and Lindsay pose for a family photo. Chris boasted of his muscles and Scott suggested that he and Lindsay test them out by jumping on Chris's back. Great idea!

Funny Penelope Videos

I've been emailing these videos around to the grandparents for the last couple of months, may as well start posting them here.

1. Penelope just randomly decides that she's a monkey in the middle of the line at Cafe Rio. She hung off the railing for a good 30 seconds before I could get the video going. Her attempt here is a little distracted, but so cute.

2. Penelope was insistent on wearing my coat sometime last month. She pranced around for a good 2 hours in it!

3. Penelope and I were at a birthday party where she discovered her love for frosting and cupcakes. Her messy face just cracks me up!

Chris just bought a power rack for our basement. It's huge. I'm not sure we can fit much of anything else in the basement now.

Last night, Chris and I had a great time working out & being silly. Chris usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to do his full work out, but last night. . . it took us two hours. My neon red unitard could have been a distraction. Not sure.

I just started the workout regimen that Chris has been doing for the last 5+ months; I'm super sore, but pretty excited about the whole thing!

Thank Heavens for the Internets.

Chris and Scott had fun ripping in half the only telephone book we have in the house.
Of course, Scott was disappointed that we only had one lying around.

Good thing we've got the internets.
