Our Walls went up! Yes! we have walls!

Our first locking the kids in the basement!  Hopefully not the last! LOL the basement will be finished eventually with a couple of bedrooms, bathroom and the ultimate teen hangout! they are never going to want to leave! (which is my plan! I love the kids to be at home)
Our First kiss! (at the house)

It was also our first mistake on the house! Our backyard is only 20 feet deep and when they poured the basement it got moved back by a foot.. so our back yard is even more tiny! Our General foreman told us that he would think of some compensation ideas for us, but for us to come up with some concessions! WHAT DO WE ASK FOR! Please give us some Ideas!

 WARNING the next picture is disturbing!

Our first Murder
Monkey man was “dying” to take this picture!” there was chalk on the wall that he thought looked just like blood…and it did, his pose is also freaky! I hope this is a normal boy thing… I have no idea!

Dirty Dash-ing

So because my Dear Husband works for a fabulous company, every year for the past 3 years they have sponsored a Dirty Dash team! What is the Dirty Dash? It’s a Mud run that is held at Soldier Hollow in Heber City Utah twice a year. This was the first year that the had a kids team so our good friends (they have 7 kids 4 of them ran) and 3 of our kids ran. I don't do mud or out doors or do I like to exercise, and Book Worm was our Photographer for the day!
But we needed a good hairdo for Baby Mermaid and this one held in really well
 Dirty Dash 002
I started with three pigtails on each side and braided the front and back pigtail, so two braided on each side, middle one not
 Dirty Dash 003
Then we crossed the front braid and the back braid over to the other side and hooked it in with an elastic
 Dirty Dash 004
Braided each pigtail together to make one gigantic braided pigtal Dirty Dash 005 
And then wrapped and megga pinned each bun
Dirty Dash 007

and this is what it looked like covered in mud… and a couple of other choice pictures!

From there website

and they are pretty cool! when they came in the mail Baby Mermaid and Little Princess were totally into them, they thought that they were very cool…
MIX-hotpink_black_350_largeThis is one of the sets that we got and I have to say they colors are just as great and bright as the pictures! I was really excited!
So here is a hairdo and a couple more pictures that we did with our  Qoileez!
 Grotto etc 034
So I pulled her hair back into a big pony leaving the front long and braided that, And put a Qoileez on the end, this one stayed in really well because of the thickness of Baby Mermaids hair! They go in really easy on some one else, I tried to put one in my own hair! thanks goodness for a DH that was willing to help out!
 Grotto etc 035  Grotto etc 037
Then I braided her bangs into four braids and put the Qoileez on each of these ends, these braids were to thin to hold the Qoileez on, so I put a elastic under them and they worked just fine!
Grotto etc 036
 Grotto etc 038
Then I Wrapped her main pony into a big bun, pined the heck out of it and made sure that the Qoileez ended up on the top! super easy!
 Grotto etc 039 Grotto etc 040 Grotto etc 041
Then I took each braid and wove them through the bun you can see how it looked and how I pulled each one through. Just make sure that the cute little plastic ends up on the top part of the bun!
 Grotto etc 042 
then I pinned down all the flyaways and ended up with this amazing bun! Grotto etc 044
Grotto etc 045
And your done! super easy and fun.
This is a second hairdo we did on baby mermaid and the Qoileez stayed in her hair amazing with no elastic!
