Today was the day, Sierra came over to watch the kids and I headed out to Onyx Salon on 25th street in Ogden. Alex was there and waiting. When she asked if we were trimming it or cutting some off, I said "Cutting it off." I think she looked a little surprised, here next comment was "Really, does Gage know?"

Although some of you may think I am creative, you have it wrong. I am just really good at stealing (copying) other peoples ideas. Here are a few examples.....
See exactly the same as Chersti's! Thank her for her creative genius if you have one of these from me!
The next item I made today, hooded towels. These are awesome. Trevin got one when he was born and now that he is a little bigger he loves to wear it! His is made out of a brown and tan striped towel. When Cheyenne was born my Sister in Law, Joni, made her a hooded towel it is super cute and definitely girly.
I love all the patch work. I've wanted to try making these since Joni gave us this one! So this morning I pulled out Cheyenne's towel as my pattern and made a couple for the upcoming baby shower. Wow I really was creative with this one, HUH! Notice that the even though they are different colors and materials, the pattern is exactly the same as Joni's. I even tried to do the patch different on the second one I made, then went back to Joni's template when mine turned out retarded. So if you see one of these as a gift from me, thank Joni for all the "inspiration."
I had to add these in... I was trying to figure out a good way to take a picture to show off these towels, so I had Trevin come model for me... can you guess which towel he liked the most?
OK so the captions may have helped. But he seriously wanted nothing to do with the "Princess" towel that I made. He is all BOY!
Like I said before, I am really excited about the way these turned out! But I'll let you decide for yourselves. The final products together! I love when you can make something girly that isn't completely pink and purple. I just hope "mom" isn't opposed to green!I have had a really hard time in the past trying to find "BOY" material, everything ends up looking a little on the girly side. I was so excited to hind these dark materials and then the ribbon that just screams BOY.So the next time you see me and I have made something that you think is pretty creative, ask me who's idea I stole! And feel free to steal it for yourself!

I can't believe the things little kids come up with. Trevin says new things everyday and I have no idea where he picks them up. Sunday morning I got Cheyenne up and got her ready and then woke Trevin up to eat breakfast. He walked down the stairs and saw Cheyenne sitting in the kitchen. He got this confused look on his face and looked at me and asked "Cheyenne, a Princess?" I just laughed and told him "Yes, Cheyenne is a princess." How in the world does he know what a princess is? Since that morning there are no girls and boys at our house just Princesses and Boys! He tells me all the time, "Trevin's a boy, Dad's a boy, Cheyenne's a princess and Mom's a Princess." I love it.
MY LITTLE PRINCE AND PRINCESS!
We are so excited for the Easter weekend. I love when General Conference falls on Easter day. The talks always seem to be even more focused on Christ and the Resurrection (if that is really possible), who better to hear from on Easter Sunday than the living Prophet?
I look forward to relaxing with my husband, while he recuperates from surgery. Maybe it will stop snowing so we can enjoy the great outdoors! One can hope, right?
