Hair, Green Eggs and Ham, Naughty Little Leprechauns and so much more...

March was a very busy but very good month. One weekend Jake and I did our Mommy/daughter and Daddy/Daughter dates with the girls. Jake and Annie went to McDonald's and to wash the truck and we also met up and bought Annie a big girl bed finally. Molly and I headed to Pizza Hut to redeem two of her reading certificates and then off to get her hair cut. She has been begging for months and I finally let her get it cut to her shoulders but it still wasn't short enough for her...sorry we need to be able to do pigtails. 

Here she is before with her long hair...I didn't actually get any after pics, I forgot, but you might be able to tell in some of the other pictures.


At Pizza Hut excited for our pizza's.

I decided to surprise the girls on Dr. Seuss's birthday and have a little Dr. Seuss lunch. We had green eggs and ham (and cheese), blue goo, and you can't tell the drinks are pink but they were supposed to be pink ink. They had fun, I think.



We also made Dr. Seuss hats to add to the fun.

We had a naughty little Leprechaun visit us again this year on St. Patricks day. He left his messy green footprints all over the kitchen, turned our milk green and even used our toilet leaving a green mess in there too.

But he made up for it by leaving the girls a fun little surprise.

All the girls in their green to make sure they were safe from pinching.

Sweet Junie's first St. Patricks Day.


We love this Holiday and make sure that every year we have a green themed dinner. This year we had green noodles with sauce, green breadsticks, green salad and....

This fun stuff....rainbow jello...you know the end of the rainbow...haha.

June had her 8 month birthday in March...I can't believe how fast time flies by, i swear she was just born.



And this silly little girl...she loves not only to have her picture taken of her but she loves to take pictures and this below is only a fraction of the kind of pictures we find on our camera after she gets ahold of it.

Silly face...

Sweet face...

Sad face...

Adorable face...

Angry face? Silly little girl...we also have lots of unattractive pictures of all of us, the t.v. stuffed animals, the floor and so much  more.

June with her first little pigtails...I love them but it makes her look so grown up.

We were lucky enough to have my parents come out for a very quick visit the end of March. We visited with them, Molly read to them, they played games with the kids, we went to lunch one day with my SIL, and they were kind enough to watch the kids for a bit so that we could go to the Temple and do a little shopping. It was so much fun to have them here, we love visitors and we hadn't had any since September. We hope now that the weather is warmer we will get more out here.

We have finally had a few warmer days and when we do we have to take advantage of them. We headed to the park one day and seriously this girl loves to be outside...and thats a good thing because I think we will be doing a lot of that this summer.

Molly was spotlighted in her Kindergarten class and was able to make a poster all about herself. She picked all the pictures out on her own and also wanted to include a map (like we did for her preschool one) that showed all of the places she has been and lived...its alot of places and her Daddy was so good to help her color them all and write the names of them all just like she wanted.

Well that was our month, besides a spur of the moment getaway to Grand Junction that I will post about soon. You'll really want to tune in for all of that excitement.

It looks like you had a great month and you went the extra distance to make sure the girls had a memorable time. I'm also sure it means a lot to them. The pictures were adorable. Thanks for making my day.
