New Do for a Stylish Girl

We have been talking about going shorter with Miranda's hair style and she always said "NO". The other day however she took the scissors to her cute long pony tails and when I found out she said she wanted her hair cut. I thought ok lets do this while she is game. So I asked her how short and told me as short as when she was 2. I showed her how short that was in pictures and she got very excited. We took the plunge and yes I miss her long pony tails and even felt a little sad but she LOVES it and her friends love it and we have no remorse. I guess it was the right time. She does however look older than her sweet young 6 years old.

Mirandas first skating competition

Miranda has been skating for a few months now. She finally has gotten to the basic skills level. She feels good not wearing her helmet and likes to skate for the whole lesson time. She was invited to her first competition and she was very excited to participate. She was hoping to win "the big trophy" just a lil bit of an overachiever but she instead won bronze in her music event and silver in her skills event.

Miranda, her coach and lil friend Celia. heir dresses were a gift for Mirandas birthday and Celia borrowed it. they look so cute.

I think her favorite part is the outfit, hair and makeup. 

Proud little medalist.

Well she kept calling 3rd place last place which it technically was but they only put 3 in each category so everyone gets at least a bronze.

Miranda's First Skating Lesson

Miranda asked for a pair of ice skates for Christmas so sweet Uncle Pete got her a nice pair. We signed up for lessons in May and this is a video of her first lesson. Now I try to be a sympathetic mom but I have to truley restrain myself from laughing at her antics. I cant always tell if its a show or if she is being real. Anyway she is still taking lessons. She still moves the same speed but she concentrates on NOT FALLING. she has also figured out that if you are slow enough the group will return to the side of the rink you are on and you dont have to g all the way and back before they move onto something else. hmmm too smart i think. ill get more footage as she improves. it may be awhile. teehee.

Good bye Sweet Ralphie

I have been putting off writing this post. I am still struggling to get over the loss of our sweet lil dog, Ralph. We had to put him down last week unexpectedly. He was diagnosed too late with diabetes that had already started to shut down and damage his other organs.
The toughest part is not having him greet me when I come home or waking up not having him there to let out. his spot on the couch where it is indented looks empty without him. I could go on in all the ways hes made my life better. (tears are now falling). I miss you Ralph I hope you are enjoying chasing those heavenly bunnies. We love you and thank you for blessing our lives with you lil puppy dog spirit.

Easter Eggs Hunting 2010

We had our family easter eggs hunt and easter dinner last saturday. The older boys (aka Easter bunnies) hid the eggs (dropped them on the lawn) and the younger ones picked them up. We were lucky enough to have a friend let us use their nice big back yard. It was alot of fun.

Look who can read.

Miranda brought home this book from the school library. She told me she was going to read it to me and then proceeded to read it to me. Shock and amazed I had to document this major mile stone. Great job Miranda you lil smarty.

Snow day blues, Summer wishes

After much convincing Miranda went outside in the snow to play.
Doris & Miranda

Doris and Miranda had a snowball fight across the driveway. It was pretty cute because neither of them could throw far enough to reach the other side. 

 We have been snowed in for the past two days with 16 inches of snow.  Too bad we have to go out and shovel. When I say "we" I really mean "me". Joe is out of town. ohh the life of a sales mans wife. I do have good neighbors who came by with their snowblower and finished it up for me. So the "we" is back in play. The snow plow guy even took pity on me and moved the snow from the road that blocked my driveway. (shhh, don't let anyone know he did it though).

After Miranda got finished playing she had the realization that snow is cold and began to drama cry. You would have thought she was just rescued from mount everest and had frost bitten toes. She now is running around the house in her "summer" clothes and has stated that she will NEVER go out in the snow again. I still think Arizona would be the perfect place to live even in the hot summers.

Ya, that's more like it. Think warm thoughts.

First Lost Tooth

It finally came out. Miranda had been working on it for a week or two. She has three others loose so she will have a gaping hole right in the front. The tooth fairy gave her $2. She wasn't sure she wanted to give her tooth up but when she saw the cash she was happy to. In her words "I love money".

Nails painted by Daddy

Miranda loves getting her nails done and Daddy did his best to paint them pink for her.

Photo Shop Magic

I was getting pretty frustrated while designing my holiday card this year. It first of all was late getting out and I could not find a family picture that we all looked good in. I decided to try to work some photoshop magic.

Original picture

I was looking in the wrong direction and the background didn't look very nice.

Here is the edited photo for the card. I cut out and moved my eye balls to look ahead and shaded in the background. I look a lil surprised but I think it will work. Not to shabby.
