These are a few of my Favorite Things...

I'm talking things you can go and purchase.  Not like my family, sunrises, the mountains...  Join in, post 5 of your favorite things you probably don't want to live without.  We all might be enlightened with new ideas!
I can't live without my Burt's Bees chapstick.  I use it at night if my lips are chapped, and in the morning, they're smooth as silk!
When changing a poopy diaper, these refreshing wipes seem to mask the awful scent.  AND, Costco sells this exact box.  Gotta love bulk purchases!
I love the PureOlogy hair care line.  It's a little pricy, but the products are so concentrated, I can use a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner for over 6 months!  I just purchased this new product, called PowerDressing, and it is a great body builder, without leaving the feeling of wax in your hair.
More about poopy diapers.  Sorry.  You know when your kid has a disgustingly huge blowout and you find yourself spending hours scrubbing the yellow mess out of their clothes?  Scrub no more!  Leave the clothes in a small tub overnight (or until you get around to doing a load of laundry!) and the poop magically disappears!  This works for just about any stain, but that is my main use.  I also keep the small spray in my diaper bag, more for Buz than anyone!
Lastly, my new found friend.  It's called the Waa Laa Teaser Comb.  Again, a little pricy, but you wear your hair everyday, so you might as well invest in it!  Unless you have perfectly thick and voluminous hair, you probably tease your hair, whether you want to admit it or not.  This find is a great teaser.  And believe me, I've searched for something good.  This is it!

Catch Up

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind adventure.  As many of you know, I am the only one of my siblings that still lives in Utah.  Quite a lonely feeling when you think about it.  So, ALL 3 of my siblings arranged to come out here at the same time!  We had tons of fun, and it's not quite over.
Lily and cute Anna, the oldest of the bunch.
Lily and Carter.  They're two days apart, and had so much fun together.
My parents have a cabin up in Star Valley, Wyoming.  We spent part of our time up there, but unfortunately Anna got the flu the day we went up there, so they couldn't join us, and their trip was cut short.  So, we didn't get any pictures of Lily and her cousin Claire together.  But we still had lots of fun.  This was Lily's first "ride" on the 4-wheelers.
Without a small tub in Wyoming, we decided to bathe Lily in the sink, since it had probably been a good 3 or 4 days since her last bath!  (She never stinks, I swear!)  I'd say she loved it, wouldn't you?
Lily and Carter in their Bumbo's.  Lily is quite the conoisseur of veggies these days.
Thanks for the fun times.  I miss you all already!
