Yesterday morning I took L girl to get her hair cut! She lasted maybe 4 minutes in the chair which gave the stylist barely enough time to cut her hair or as b daddy use to call it "crazy scientist hair". I think it looks much better now!
Can you believe how red baby b's hair is!? I love it! I've always wanted a little red head! Thanks for the gene B daddy! Oh, and thanks to my mom. She has red hair too.
We are leaving on Wednesday! I won't be blogging again till Monday! B daddy is flying down to Salt Lake to help his dad build four bedrooms in their basement. We are going down there for Christmas this year and now will have some place to stay! Also his brother who's getting home from his mission this year will need a room!
I'm going to be at my mom's house while he goes. I'll need all the help I can get! L girl is excited to see her grandpa and grandma. Especially grandpa.
Be back soon! Have a spooky Halloween!

When we got back from our date we played pictionary with our friends. This shot is of Jay. He had to draw the pope. He drew him in a really cool car that he dubbed the "pope mobile". It was a knee slapper!
This photo has nothing to do with our date but, I just had to share it! This is B Daddy and Baby B. He came home from school and fell asleep with her. So cute! I love him so much! He's such a wonderful father! The girls just adore him!

This is her table that she decorated at the Pink Tea. She works at the hospital here in town and got the opportunity to be the head of a table. She did such a great job! The Pink Tea is a fundraiser for breast cancer. All the money that was donated today when towards paying for mammograms that others can't afford. A breast cancer survivor spoke at the Tea. She did such a wonderful job. She had us all laughing, crying, and singing! They are looking for volunteers at our hospital, specifically in the new cancer resource center. I hope that some time soon I could find a few hours here and there to help! I think it would be a good thing for me to get out of the house and a good thing for me to help with! Thank you Camille for inviting me! You're the Best!

Back to the makeup.... She was having color time this last week and discovered markers were the closest thing to makeup. She looks gorgeous! Don't you think!?
Nemo Nemo Nemo! I stayed up with her on Wednesday night and watched nemo with her and now she can't get enough of it. She copies what they say and do. It's really fun. Especially the part when they have to jump on the jelly fish tops. Also the part when they make nemo jump through the ring of fire. She yells, "Ha He Wa He Ha HO HO HO".

Yesterday we all drove out to the WSU organic farm. It is so stinkin cute! They have a huge you-pick apple orchard, pumpkin patch, and berry patch. L girl really loved finding all the pumpkins. This particular one was old and rotting. It was very squishy and smelly! Yuck! But she loved the fact that she could tote it around. We got there late in the day so we never actually got home with a pumpkin. Next year. Yeah, next year we'll get there early before all the good pumpkins are gone!

25 min 5 min prep
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup loose-pack frozen whole kernel corn
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, crushed or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of potato soup
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 3 ounces)
1 dash pepper
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 1 ounce)
1. In a large saucepan combine broccoli, corn, water, onion, and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Do not drain.
2. Stir milk, chicken or turkey, potato soup, the 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, and pepper into vegetable mixture. Cook (stirring often) over medium heat until cheese melts and mixture is heated through.
3. Sprinkle each serving with the remaining cheddar cheese. That's it! You're done.
Changes: I put a chicken breast in the oven with the cornbread before I make the soup. I put a little olive oil on it with garlic salt and pepper. When the chicken is done let it sit for at least 5 min. Then I shred the chicken using a fork. I love shredded chicken in soups so much better than cubed.

When Joseph B. Wirthlin got up to speak I was all ears. He asked the question what quality defines us best as members of the church? He continued with the answer, Charity for it is the pure love of Christ. He said you could even have the faith to move mountains but without charity it won't profit you at all. His talk was perfect. I loved it so much. I felt so much love for him. I cried when he told to story of the old woman who could no longer paint her nails and of her loving husband who would paint them for her till she died. When he started to struggle I began to cry again. I was a sobbing mess! Not only was I feeling the spirit but I was still feeling crazy hormones. (as I have given birth only 3 weeks ago) I wanted so badly to be up there with him, to help him! I was so grateful that Elder Nelson got up and stood with him.
I couldn't regain my composure and wanted nothing more than for my husband to hold me. So, I went home! I ran in balling to my husband who, quickly asked what happened? who died? I was laughing through my tears explaining what had happened during Elder Wirthlin's talk. Since he was only listening to conference, he wasn't able to see what was going on.
General Conference is wonderful. I love feeling a renewed sense of spirituality.
