Fun Week

We had a great week, but no pics to show for it! Jana and Becca were visiting from Utah and staying with Sara, so we all took the kids to the zoo on Wed. It worked out great b/c Josh had a dermotologist appointment at the Childen's Hospital early that morning, so we were alreay in Denver anyway. The poor kid--he had so many skin issues I didn't even know where to being. But the dr. gave him something for his eczema which worked great. He's had bleeding, infected eczema for like a month and NOTHING was even touching it. So we are glad of that. And he had a skin virus called molluscum which he got burned off. That sounds painful, but it really wasn't too bad at all.
The kids had a great time at the zoo. I think the elephants and monkeys were the biggest hits. I usually had at least three kids in my stoller, so I got a killer workout.
Then Friday night was GIRLS NIGHT. Jana, Sara, Becca and I went to downtown Denver and did a little window shopping and then to see "Get Smart." We got there a little late, so we were sitting on the 2nd row. Yikes! But it was so much fun to hang with the girls and just laugh and have a good time.
We rounded out the weekend at Braxton's Birthday party (Which happened to fall on Sara's birthday) The kids played water games and then we had a yummy bbq. We were laughing over so many high school memories and had a great night. It was so fun to see Jana and Becca and we hope they come out again soon!

Funny Josh

So, I went to get Josh from nursery today and he jumped into my arms and the first thing he said was, "Where's Russy?" (Rusty)

I was laughing so hard.

I saw this on Amanda's blog and couldn't wait to see which Disney Princess I would be. I thought Halle would be so impressed. But Mulan??? Really??? Can I try again?.......

You Are Mulan!

Strong and spirited. You're no one's girly girl; actually you are very determined person with a strong sense of self. Never let go of that! The only thing that equals your sense of self is your family, but the traditions of society can always be bent to protect something or someone you love.

Which Disney Princess Are You?


Here's the highlights:
When we got of the plane in SLC I turned to Halle and said, "Wow! Thanks for being so good on the airplane." She looked at me and in her best big girl voice said,
Mom, it was my pleasure." Everyone within earshot totally cracked up.

"No macuum??" Josh calls vacuums, macuums, and he HATES them. Well, in my parents neighborhood someone is always mowing their lawn, and he was so scared. We kept trying to explain it all to him, but he just didn't get it. About 600 times a day he'd say, "No macuum??"

Girls night with my sisters. SO MUCH FUN. We got pedicures and had cute flowers put on our big toes. Then we went to dinner at the Olive Garden. It was so fun to spend time together. We need to do that more!

My Dad took the day off work and we all went to the Sandy Aquarium. It was pretty fun--they had a really cool octopus, and Halle loved the Sharks. Josh loved looking at all the fish and running everywhere.

Rusty had birthday celebrations galore. One at my house, one at his house, and one when we got back to CO!

We, along with Grandma and Grandpa Cornell went on a fun picnic up AF canyon to Mutual Dell. Halle picked millions and millions of dandiloins, and was in heaven.
Kasey and Brian were kind enough to let Halle come down and ride on Lizzie. Halle was pretty quiet while she was on the horse, but hasn't stopped talking about it since. She looks at the pictures and watches the video over and over again. She told me she wants a horse just like Lizzie when she grows up.

I'm sure Cory will want to kill me for posting this pic, but I couldn't help it. Halle convinced Bridger that Princesses really do have the most fun!
