Lots to Tell

Ever had one of those days when the hair just doesn't turn out right? Well.........Taryn has been there too. She woke up from a nap the other day, just upset and crying and this is what she looked like. (I would cry too sweetie if my hair looked that way.) Her hair is actually getting long enough that I can put it in pig tails and curl it, however, she takes out anything that goes in her hair, and in about an hour after styling her hair, it is un-styled. Oh well. At least I try. Maybe someday she will like to keep her hair looking nice.

This is a good scene to see. Vaughn has graduated from medical school and is just "hanging out" while we wait to go to residency, which by-the-way we have no idea yet where we are going, and he is able to spend a lot of time with us. The kids love to play with their daddy. I love it too. It gives me a big help when I need to get things done and we can "tag team" while watching the kids.The snow has come to visit us again. I am ready for it to go away...... Tyson wanted to make a snowman. I forgot how hard it is to make a snowman, when the snow won't pack. You are looking at an hour's worth of work. And since we didn't have enough rocks for eyes, we used some old sun glasses. They worked. Tyson had fun and that is all that mattered. But when we got in the house he said, "Mom, I need some HOT CHOCOLATE." Me too...

Little Miss Messpot! She is getting to be so independent. She wants to do it HERSELF. It is good to see her break out of the baby stage, but she tries to do everything by herself and she isn't quite ready in all aspects. This is one of her cheesy grins during dinner. We cannot have a dinner without her and Tyson having a "giggle fest."
