Whitney's Family Pics

So I know I have been posting pictures on my other blog but I wanted to share a few of the ones I took earlier this week. I was able to take family pictures for my friend Whitney. They are of her, her daughter Emberlyn, and her fiance James. We took them down and Riverwoods and just so you know if any of you want to take them down there- they charge $25 to take them around the stores. We didn't know, and I think its kind of retarded since its a public shopping area-especially since there is most likely going to be other people shopping etc... so we only got a few in by the stores and then we went back behind the condos by the bridges- I had found some pretty cool places where I wanted to take more pictures around the stores but alas we weren't able to- I asked them if they wanted to pay $25 and they were fine with going somewhere else. Well here are just a few of the ones I took of them.

Braids. Food. Fire!...

Olivia is so good to sit still for me everyday so I can do her hair. I wanted her to have crimpy hair tomorrow so tonight after she had her bath I did french-braid cornrows. She was so patient and sat so still while I braided them!

In other news at the Smith home: Tonight I wanted to surprise Mike with a yummy dinner- pot roast, mashed potatoes, rolls, wasail.... mmmm. Well as I was getting ready to make the mashed potatoes, I decided I should think of a family home evening lesson. So while I waited for the water to boil I was searching for something to teach and forgot I had water boiling. I started to smell somthing burning and ran into the kitchen, where it was filling up with smoke- the water was all evaporated. So I shut the stove off and as soon as I lifted the pot off the burner, the pot exploded into flames! Luckily after I had put it on the ground the fire went out, but left the house in a lovely smoke and burnt smell. Luckily Melanie was over and so she took the kids outside while I tried to air the house out. Im so glad the only thing that got ruined was the pot- its pitch black now. ... Dinner was still good, even without the potatoes.

Save Me Mom!

What are big sisters for?...

I think these pictures say it all:)

Silly Kids

My kids were kind of hyper tonight- it took forever to get them to fall asleep!
But, they sure are stinkin' cute!
