Stella where are you?

I was busy blowing drying my hair, and when I was done, I couldn't find Stella.  So I wandered around the house calling her name, no answer.  So I back tracked, checking each room more thoroughly.  Low and behold I found her in Sarah and Kali's closet with a bottle of fingernail polish.  As you can tell she put it on her lips, like lipstick, and all over her arms, like lotion, but no fingernail polish on her toes or fingers.  I realized what a bad mom I have been to Stella, she didn't know where fingernail polish went because I never have put any on her!  So later that day I put some on her toes and fingers.  She was so proud of her fingers and toes that all day she would show them to me and say "Pretty mom, pretty."

Kole and Stella are growing up!

Lately Kole and Stella don't need a Mom.
Kole wants to fix his hair for school, 
and Stella wants to get dressed by
herself.  I try to help them, but nope,
they are getting old enough to do things 
themselves.  It is so fun to watch them experience
independence.  Kole was very proud of his hairdo,
Stella on the other hand got so frustrated with
her clothes that she finally gave up, and decided
to not wear clothes for the day.

Weekend Getaway

This past weekend Kris and I were able to get away, alone, thanks to our neighbors!  We first went and did a session at the Medford Temple (about 2 1/2 hrs away), then drove up to Eugene(another 2 1/2 hrs).  In Eugene we watched the PAC 10 wrestling championship.  One of his wrestlers from Palo Verde was wrestling for Stanford (Kyle Barrett), and another wrestler, that would wrestle for him in the summer, wrestled for CalPoly (Chase Pami).  We were able to watch all sessions of the tournament, Kyle did well, considering he had just wrestled one match the whole season, he ended up getting 4th, but was seeded 8th.  Chase won the tournament, and will go to nationals in 2 weeks.  
Kyle's parents and grandparents, Sam Bailey and his father attended and we hung out with them the whole weekend.  It was nice to visit with them, they are great families, who we miss.  On Monday, we went to the Oregon bookstore and bought some attire for the children.    We had such a fun weekend together.
