February 2012

The Very first week of February Brad had to go to San Francisco, Cali and of course we had to go with him! We first stopped in Reno to break up the trip, then in Santa Rosa where Brads brother Bryce and his sister Paige and their families live, we stayed there for 2 days and it was so nice to visit with them. I couldn't find the pictures, I'm sure Brad probably has them somewhere!

The day before we left Sis. Hunter the YW president was so sweet and stopped buy to bring us to go treats and coloring books for both girls, "I love my ward, everyone is so nice!" Anyways, the girls loved their markers and coloring books, it kept then entertained the whole way there, but at the end of the trip I looked back and I saw that Bella got tired of coloring her in the book!

Is there anyway you can be mess up this girls face, I wanted to complain, but none of us could help it, and we bursted out in laughter! Good thing they where washable, they wiped right away.

The Hotel we stayed in San Francisco had this amazing view "below", so while dad would go to work, we would go downstairs and explore.

Now if you ask what was the high light of our month, most of our family would say - San Francisco- But not Gabi, for most of you that knows Gabi, knows that her most favorite holiday is Valentines, and because of that, we try to make a big day for her. Daddy had to go to Snowbird the week we where back, just on Sunday to Tuesday, but that fell right in to Valentines so we had to push our valentines to one day later and do it on the 15th and not tell her, or it would be a big disappointment, probably just as much as Santa Claus not showing up on Xmas. But gladly she believed us and we had an amazing valentines! And yes Daddy did spoil them letting them have their chocolates before breakfast.

Happy Girls!

My Happiness!

My life! Now we had a better family picture than this one, but I thought it was so funny  how Gabi and I and Brad and Bella look alike

Our traditional holiday sugar cookies, ( I'm terrible at making sugar cookies, but the girls love  it...)

We have such a nice time together, that I can't go with out making them

Downtown, I don't really remember what we where doing there, but I remember having a good time :)
They love each other

Do you allow your kids to take toys to bed with them? I felt like I would be a mean mom if I didn't let them, but this was getting out of control, her toys were pushing her out of bed, and she did fall a few times in the middle of the night, besides, if she woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't find a toy, she would freak out and cry until somebody came to help. So I had enough and after a lot of work I was able to get to only 3 toys of reasonable size allowed, so they doesn't get lost easily.
But I know I need to be careful and put my foot down because the collection is starting to get big again

This beautiful Girl has been asking to cut her hair short for months and months but we didn't want to. Finally I agreed and and we just had to work on daddy. Daddy was totally against it but we did it anyway, you should see her excitement, she was so happy and giggling, that won daddy over. She flipped her hair back and forth and looked in the mirror over 100 times. 2-3 hours later came the true "Girl Drama" she missed her hair and cried, and sobbed, and refused to get out of her room the next day, pleaded with us to glue her hair back on, and swore that she wouldn't come out of her room until her hair was long again, it didn't matter how much we told her how beautiful she looked.
Then mom pulled out her computer and got all the pictures of  little girls with short hair do's that we could find, so she could pick all the ones she liked. and after that she was okay with it. she wasn't quiet sure if she liked her new hairdo, but she wasn't so sad anymore, thank goodness!

I had cut my hair too and did bright highlights, I have no make up there, so it really isn't my best picture, and the light is bad, but my sister had insisted at the time for a picture right away and that's the only one I have.

This beautiful girl also got a her cut, but only 3 inches out, and because her hair was so long we really can't tell, but because I was taking those pictures with my phone to send to titia Vivi she was really sad that I wasn't including her...
