Rylie was very excited about her crazy hair!


Last night as we were getting ready to go to the Real Salt Lake game we heard a knock at the door. It sounded like a kid knock so I took my time getting there. I opened the door to find Rylie standing there covered in blood and standing in drips of blood all over the porch. She had been playing at the neighbor's house in their sandbox when one of the boys whacked her in the head with a shovel...OUCH! My first thought was..."lets go to the hospital" but on further inspection (and much debate) we decided that it isn't super deep. Deep enough to require a trip to the store for butterfly bandages but not enough for stitches. Rylie was a real trooper through the ordeal. The most she cried was when we said "butterfly bandage" because she didn't know what that was and it sounded scary.
BTW- Why don't they make "cute" butterfly bandages?
We were able to get her all bandaged up and comforted in time to go to the game. Thanks to Auntie Amy for babysitting and for Drew distracting Rylie from her wound.
P.S. School pictures are tomorrow...of course :).

More of our fam...

Wow! I'm short....or Evan is tall!


Compact Vertical Dispenser
I know what the GP stands for! GO PEE!

last night we were at the gas station and Rylie decided that she just couldn't wait until we got to Grandma's house to go potty. Kenzi took her to the bathroom and while she was taking care of her business she noticed the logo on the toilet paper dispenser. She knew right away what GP must stand for.

The Clean Room Fairy

This last week I got a call from a fairly new fairy. Her name is the "Clean Room Fairy" and her job is to reward kids for having a clean room. Much like the tooth fairy, she does her job without ever being seen.
I had cleaned the girls bedroom on Friday and somehow the clean room fairy heard about this momentous occasion. She called me telling me that if the girls will keep their bedroom clean then she would reward them with a random treat or surprise. The thing is that they will never know when she might come to check on their room. She may come every day or every other day or even once a week but you never know when she might show up. I told the girls about my phone call and they were very excited. On Saturday morning they woke up and hurried in to make their beds and make sure that everything was in its place. About half way through the day Rylie went in and found a halloween prize on her bed. It was a bag of M & M's with a halloween pencil.

The clean room fairy didn't come yesterday , Saige says its because she doesn't work on Sunday, but I love to hear the girls encourage each other to clean up and make sure their beds are made. They are so excited about this new fairy and honestly...SO AM I!

Maybe next time she comes I will remember to take a picture of the girls with their prize.
