Merry Christmas!

Well, I missed a post last Sunday because I had to work. So I will do two this week!

Here are some pictures from our Christmas. It was wonderful! Lynnli had so much fun! She got so many new toys and clothes! She doesn't know what to do with half of them! Her favorite is her little bike she got. She never wants to get off it! She also just LOVES her dolls. She got a talking Elmo and Cookie Monster, and a Cheer Leader doll who sings a few cheers. She got just a soft baby doll and Barney. Lots of Elmo and Barney movies, a bunch of new outfits with a new bow and headband for each one! Just tons of fun stuff!

Andrew also got some fun stuff, which including, "the best Christmas present I ever got" he says, 3 Zebra Finches. They are so much fun! The sing all day and are just fun to watch! We have 2 girls and 1 boy. Andrew said he didn't want to name them...but I still did. :) There names are Flip, Flop, and Flutter. I will put pictures on with my next post.

I also got the best Christmas present ever! Andrew got me a Phoenix HP22. A little pistol. It is so small and cute! The clip holds 10 shots which is more than what I thought it would hold. I love shooting and now need to hurry and get my concealed weapons permit. We are going shooting tomorrow and I will put some pictures from that on as well.

It was such a fun day! I am so excited for Lynnli's Birthday, in a few months, when we can do it all over again! For now, enjoy the pictures and be sure to check back soon!

We're back!!

Wow, it's been a long time since we've put up any posts. Since I've taken over the Riverton Sally's, we are just always busy! But I am determined to get back into writing a post at least a couple times a month. Hopefully once a week. Lets just say I'm starting my New Years Resolutions early. :)

Anyway, I'm putting a few pictures of Lynnli in front of the tree. She loves the lights, but she loves smiling for pictures more. She is 8 1/2 months old now and as fun as ever! She crawls backwards and can move both arms and one leg forward. She just can't get that other leg in front of the other. As soon as she figures it out, she'll be all over though.

Andrew is still working on getting Sylex started. They are so close! West Valley City is just being stubborn (to put it nicely) and won't give us our building permit still. Soon...very soon. While we're working on that, he is going up to Idaho to work on a school with his dad, uncle, and brother. He likes working with his family, hates to travel, and is sick of waiting for the building permit. We just keep telling ourselves it will be worth it in the long run.

I still love managing Sally's. It's a great job, they are a great company, and I love being able to pick my schedule and boss everyone else around. :) I have been making wedding announcements for friends in the little free time I have and love doing it. If anyone knows someone looking for someone to do theirs, I'd love to! I'm working on making a blog for just that, I just need to have enough examples on it. I can also do baby announcements, Senior announcements and anything you'd like. It's only a hobby though. So don't worry, I'm not trying to advertise to you all.

Anyway, I'm going to throw on a few more pictures form the last couple months of some of the stuff I missed blogging on. We hope everyone is healthy and happy! We'll be back next week (hopefully)!
