Apple Pie and Hair Cuts

So I was feeling very domestic and do it myself the week of Thanksgiving, so that's what I did. Logan's hair was getting quite out of control and even thought I like it long, we decided it was time to chop it off. And since I was doing one kid I might as well do the other. They both hate getting their hair cut, so it was a very tearful experience.

Next, I decided to bake a homemade apple pie from scratch, dough and everything. Along with my apple pie I made garlic and bacon roasted mashed potatoes, now those were easy and very tasty. I think they will become a turkey day tradition. Since you can't taste my delicious pie you will have to settle for the picture. Please enjoy.

This is my first ever homemade apple pie (well pie in general). I got the recipe from my sister and I was on my way. I was very nervous, but it turned out really good. The dough was a little tricky getting it into the pie dish, but other then that it wasn't too bad. It was a great success, although I'm not sure I'll do it again.

I forgot to take a picture of Makay before his hair cut. He cried the whole time I used the clippers, but once I got to the scissors he was fine, well I still had to hold him, but at least he wasn't screaming.

This is the face I saw the majority of the time, he hates getting his hair cut. Can you believe how long it is? Poor kid.

Yikes, that's a lot of THICK hair!

Don't let the smile fool you those red cheeks mean he was crying the whole time I was using the clippers also, refer to picture above and you can imagine how long it took. And our clippers suck, we need new ones.

This is the final look after I tried my best to clean it up with the scissors It's a lot shorter then I wanted it on top, but oh well I'm sure I'll get better each time I try. (If I try again)

Oops, I totally forgot to put on the attachment.

Last Couple of Days

I have taken some fun pictures of the last couple of days, so I thought I would post some. On another note I am loving Logan going to Pre-school, not only is he making all sorts of fun crafts and participating in fun activities I feel like he well be much better prepared for elementary school when the time comes. I am so thankful for the opportunity to send him to Pre-school.

A couple of pictures of the fun things Logan's been making at Pre-school.

Here's what Dave and I found when we went to tuck Logan in when we were going to bed...hilarious.

Makay stuck in the leaves

Speaking of Makay what a handful this little tyke is, he keeps me on my toes. Some one his latest he loves to cook. The first thing he does in the morning is get his pot and wooden spoon that I have set aside for him to play with and starts cooking, however, one pot and spoon is not enough, so he is constantly trying to get into the the drawers and cupboards for more pots and spoons. Walking around saying "spoon" and "cooking" in the most pitiful voice. As much as this drives me crazy I'm sure one day I'll look back and miss it. The question is when is that day going to come? Oh well he's my little Dennis the Mennis, and I love him to bits.

Here's our backyard once all the leaves had fallen.

Logan's New Bed

So for the past couple of weeks Logan has been having a hard time, he seemed very irritated, wouldn't stay in his own bed at night, and everything was a battle during the day. After about a week of me pulling my hair out while being a stay-at-home mom (SAHM), and thinking somethings got to give, we decided that it was time to get rid of Logan's car bed. Logan was really sad at first, he totally started crying and stayed in his room for sometime. However, once he saw how big and fun his new bunk bed was he was happy to say good-bye to his car bed.

So long, it's been great!

Ta-da here it is, the lifesaver. It's only been a couple of days and I can already see a difference in his attitude. Not only is the new mattress so much softer, it has a flannel sheet set that keeps him toasty warm, and he hasn't been in our room since he got his new bed. Thank you so much to Rob and Nikki for the bunkbed, and now none of our guest have to sleep on an air mattress anymore. What a difference a good nights rest can make.

Terrific Tuesday!

Terrific Tuesday is what our ward is doing instead of Super Saturday, not only did I go to terrific Tuesday tonight, I had a pretty terrific Tuesday all together.
  • It started off with a Dr. appt. that actually gave the boys good quality time with Grandma and grandpa, and me time to read part of a good book as I was waiting.
  • Then a quick visit with my hubby, that's always nice.
  • Next off to the chiropractor, the boys and I got adjusted, and they did pretty well for their first time, got to keep that immune systems up.
  • Back home to make dinner and off to terrific Tuesday to make some awesome capes and tutus for Christmas.
  • Now it's time to hang out with Davizzle.

As I write this out it doesn't look to great, but I feel very balanced and accomplished today. Good night everybody.
