We have been adding a few things to our house slowly, someday it will be finished. Jaymee and Corey helped us paint our kitchen a yellow gold color, and then Corey helped us paint two walls a darker brown in our family room. I think it looks good, but the kitchen came out a brighter yellow than we wanted, so we got the curtains. What do you think? And yes, we do still have the cardboard on the painting and it is crooked, we just wanted to see how it looked on the wall in case we wanted to take it back.
Cambria had her first day of preschool today. She was so excited, she woke up early and was upset because it wasn't time to go yet. I think she will have a lot of fun at school, and hopefully learn a lot. Of course we had to take a first day of school picture by our front door.On the walk to preschool. She even laid out her clothes the night before. I used to do this when i was little. Just some cute pictures I never posted. Cambria is so helpful.
Corey took some family pictures for us yesterday at the Gardens at Byu-Idaho. Thanks Corey! And also thanks to my friend Summer for coming to my rescue and doing my hair, or else it would have looked fuzzy! (She cut my hair also!) Cambria got tired of smiling and Ashlynn just wanted to run around, so we didn't get a lot of family ones, but we got a lot of good pictures. We will have to take pictures again when Ashlynn isn't teething. We still have to edit the pictures, and change colors and crop some, but Aaron is still learning to use photoshop. Anyway, these are my favorites. When she doesn't want to smile she does a weird face, oh well, I look ok! There was so much for Ashlynn to look at there, so she didn't want anything to do with posing for pictures. It looks like we just got engaged! I think this is the best family picture we got. There were these little apples on a tree there, and so we gave Ashlynn one to distract her. Cambria thought they were cute. But then she started to eat it. At least it kept her still for a minute. Some silly ones of me... That apple did not taste very good... She was mad that we weren't done yet, but I think it came out kinda cute because she is frowning. I think this one is my favorite one of Cambria. We thought this was kind of a creepy looking statue. We had a hard time getting Ashlynn to sit still and smile for pictures, but of course she was happy and smiling on the way home. Oh well, I will take her smiles and giggles anytime I can! Doesn't her hair look lovely?
This is possibly the weirdest thing ever invented but Cambria has been wanting it for months. She gets so excited every time the commercial for these is on tv. We were going to wait and get them for Christmas but Aaron saw them at the fair, so he decided to get them. I think he was feeling sad because he hasn't really seen them this week, and Cambria has been crying at night when he isn't home yet.
They have a velcro strap that you snap to the other side of the pillow, so it makes legs. Cambria calls it a snuggly animal. Cute huh? Then it turns back into a pillow. Ashlynn got a zebra, but she likes playing with Cambria's ladybug because of its antennas.
We spent a few days in Blackfoot so we could go to the Eastern Idaho State Fair. Aaron has to work everyday at the fair so it was fun to go a few days and eat the fair food. My kids love going to Grandma and Papa's house, they always have popsicles! Ashlynn looks like she had a rough day. She never naps when we are there because there is too much fun to be had. Ashlynn loves looking at books. Her favorite ones are books with animals. She loves looking at the puppy or "puhpuh" in her book. She even kisses it. Someone looks like she has had too much sugar. She was standing in line waiting to get on the expensive rides. She had a lot of fun. She made a friend, and her and the little girl went on a few of the rides together. I think it made Cambria feel better to have someone to sit by. At first she didn't want to go on this ride because she said the dragon was scary, but then she changed her mind. She is so brave! She was laughing the whole time but she never would take her hands off the bar. She was dancing around because she was so excited. We took them to see the animals. Cambria just said it smelled bad and she needed to get out of there, but Ashlynn loves looking at all the animals. She was amazed at the different sounds they made. The ones in her books don't make noises! We just had to get them some bubblegum ice cream. This is Aaron's booth at the fair. Fancy huh? That's because him and his friend painted it last year and made it look nicer. Giant pumpkin. That's all. Now I am tired and I have a messy house and lots of laundry to do.
