wow, i need a tan!





in this one you can see the orange hue! special isn't it


so what is your vote, platinum or carrot top?

in some ways i am amazed that i went for it!!! i have always played it very safe when it comes to my hair. but it will grow back . . .

and oh, the roots i will have then!

emma thinks i'm beautiful
maddi likes the change
ethan still thinks i look like his mom
and will, well . . . "he thinks i looked better before, no seriously!" (lately he adds that to every comment, it's kind of cute)
and brian, he loves me no matter what color my hair is . . . but i think when your husband starts looking through pictures and comments on other hairstyles you once had saying, "your hair was pretty blond then Em!" i am thinking he likes the more natural blonde look. but hey, i never would have known that if i hadn't gone for it.

it snowed today but i'm dreaming in yellow. . . .

the warmth of sunshine
lemons
dandelions
daisies
pineapple
goldfish
bumble bees
butterflies
daffodils
bananas
a perfect sunset
me!

you may be wondering how my name made the list, well it is my dream, and so of course i am in it, and in my dream i have the most beautiful platinum blonde hair.

well some dreams come true

and others you wake up and look in the mirror and that beautiful platinum blonde hair doesn't look quite as platinum.

in fact

you were once dreaming in the perfect shade of blonde and now everything has taken on a slightly orange hue

and yes i do mean my hair!

i'll post pics soon, it's worth the suspense i promise.


happy spring

a sweet little voice keeps asking me the same sweet little question

"mom . . . . when is it going to be spring?"

my answer is always the same.

"soon emma, soon."

today was a good day

brian took maddi and will skiing at castle mountain for the first time.
they loved it.
i wish I could have been there. ( I'll post some pics soon)

but i stayed home with the younger three and we cleaned the house, i mean under the bed burrowing clean, and then we went swimming together.

we played sharks and pirates and seth was the cutest shark.
emma and ethan are such little fish, they love the water.

i love spending time with my little ones.
they grow so fast and i truly enjoy every stage . . . .
but there is something about a 3 and 5 year old mixed with water that is just so magic.
hmm . . . what do you think of this buns and water mix?
i love those cute little cheeks
i love every thing about this girl
the smartest, sweetest, kindest little man I know
