New hair

I know- another post?! What the crap. Get over it. :)

I am currently growing my hair out. My family thinks I will give up any moment and chop it all off. They have good reason to think that. I have no patience with my hair, and when ever I get bored I chop it off or color it. Not this time. I have stuck to my guns and have been growing it out. It is now to my collar bone and looks awful. The layers are chunky and gross and it just doesn't look good unless it is up in a ponytail. I am trying hard to avoid the ponytail- which means I need it cut so it looks good down. I found 2 pictures of what I would like done. Let me know what you think.

I should note that this picture is from Jenna Nelson's collection. I was looking through her photo's and saw this picture and liked the cut. I hope that it is legal to copy and paste...

Camping Fun

Even though our camping trip involved a lot of blood, tears, mud, smoke, sun and wind, we all left with smiles on our faces!

Jack was an awesome camper- he only made a peep when he was hungry, and I think he slept warmer than we did at night.

The kids had fun playing with their new friends and Scott & I enjoyed getting to know our new friends even better.

We did spend several hours at the ER in Price, after Duncan's head was split open from shooting a gun and having the recoil hit his head. He is fine- other than a fun scar that he'll be sporting the rest of life.

Just a few pictures...

The property we were at had this awesome cabin. It isn't finished, but the kids loved playing inside of it. I'd love to have family pictures taken here. What an awesome structure...

Carrie and her new friend, Catie. Those two would not leave each others sides- it was so cute to see them play together.

I love this picture. I don't know what could be so serious that they had to sit down and discuss it, but you can tell they are deep in thought. :)

This is Duncan and Johnathan. Even though they are several years apart, they still had fun playing with each other. I am looking forward to more camping trips with this family. It is nice for the kids to have little playmates.

Scott and Duncan shooting. This is not the gun that was used during the accident. That would be his 9mm handgun... Duncan and Scott are best of friends- it is fun to think about what else they will do together throughout their lives.

I hope to go camping a few more times this year. It is nice to have children (including a newborn) who do so well when camping. Although it is nice to come home to a shower and clean bed, I love the chance we have to spend time together as a family building memories for a lifetime.

Wow- has it been 5 months?

So, I have been thinking a lot about how I wanted to update my blog. Something witty, fun, clever, etc... I can't think of anything. So, just to get you up to speed, I'll just list what has been going on since March.

-I graduated from school. (technically I am not done until I do my externship, but whatever. I totally rocked the stage at graduation)

-Our Geo died. Sad times. But we did get an awesome piece of junk subaru for Scott to drive for free.

-I shaved my mom's hair. She finished chemo, and had her "girls" cut off. She also got a tummy tuck as part of the deal. I am so having that done when I am finished having kids.

-I finally got caught up on my laundry. I swear it has been a year in the making, but I did it.

-We also cleaned out the garage, and I am parking in it. This is a new concept to me as we never parked the cars in the garage growing up. That is what the driveway is for.

-Oh, and I crapped out a kid on July 21st. We named him Jack Bringhurst Witney. He was over 4 weeks early, but when your water breaks, you have now choice but to have the baby. After 2 hours of labor and 1 contraction worth of a push (and no epidural) he was born. He has been such a GOOD baby. I feel really blessed to have another baby, and am excited to be his mother.

Jack Bringhurst Witney

He is 1 part old man and 1 part monkey. :)

I will try to be better about posting, but I am not promising anything....
