Dance Competition

Today we drove down to St George for Kennedi's dance competition. We drove 2 1/2 hours for a 2 minute dance...crazy I know....but she had a great time. She LOVES performing in front of people.

This is her clogging dance they performed.....
(keep in mind she is at least a year younger then the rest of the girls in her class, LOL)

On the way home we stopped at Jav & Tara Redd's house in Cedar to see their new baby Krew. He is adorable, and made our little Dax look big for once!

A Big Day!!

Woo Hoo!!!!
So today was a big day for us....we broke ground on
our new house!!!
We have been working on the house plans for about 2 months now. I keep changing things....adding stuff, taking stuff out, changing window sizes etc....and even now, I need to change a few more things before they start framing it. I just don't want to regret something when it is done so I'm constantly studying our plans and looking at houses on the internet for ideas.

Here is our hole a little over 1/2 way dug out.

This will be our front view......and yes on a good day you can see the "Nipple" for all of you Sevier/Sanpeters :-)
We are building in Gunnison by the way.
On a side note....I had to take Dax in to get him weighed today, and at 2 1/2 months old the little guy only weighs 8 lbs. So.....more formula and new medication to help him keep his food down. We'll recheck in another 2 weeks.

Homeade Wipes

I thought I would post this recipe since so many of my friends have just had or are getting ready to have their babies (Congrats to Jav & Tara, who had their baby boy today!). They are great for newborns-no so great after they are around 6 or 7 months.

1st: Get a roll of paper towels and cut in half. I use Brawny Big Roll.
2nd: Put one half in some kind of tupperware bowl with a lid, and save the other half for later.
3rd: Mix 1 tbsp baby wash, 1 tbsp baby oil, and 1 cup hot water.

4th: Pour mixture over the paper towels and let it soak in for about 10 min.
5th: Take out the middle part of the paper towels.
So I buy a thing of 6 rolls of paper towels, 70 sheets/roll, and I can make 840 wipes for under $6.
To answer some of the questions that have been left.......
I don't usually let my 5 year old cut these, it was only for the picture, LOL.
And, I don't like to use these wipes after they are about 7 months because their poop gets yuckier the older they get, and these wipes are not as thick as store bought ones??? I don't know....I stopped using them with Kennedi about that time, maybe I just got sick of making them. I can't really remember the reason. LOL.

St. Patrick's Day & A Smiling Boy!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! (yesterday)
It was so nice outside was the first time I'd taken Dax outside without him all bundled up.
Daxton is just starting to smiling, so i was so excited that I caught this on video the other night while I was getting him ready for bed.

2 Months Old!!

Our Little Daxty Boy is already 2 months old. I can't believe it, maybe because he still looks about 3 weeks old.
He had his doctors appointment today, and he only weighs 7 lbs 10oz (.3 percentile), and 22.5 inches long (33rd percentile).

Our doctor was a little concerned that he isn't putting on more weight, so we have to supplement with some formula once a day to give him more calories. Hopefully we can get some fat on him (the only thing that seems to be growing on him is his hair).

Dax is such a good baby. He rarely cries, and only wakes up one time during the night. He is such a wonderful blessing in our lives.

Poor guy, loves the tub, but hates to get out. See how little he still is??

I can't wait until his 0-3 month clothes finally fit because they are all so cute. Here is how 0-3 jeans fit. I can stick both of my fists in the waist, and if you lift him up they fall right off.

He has the longest eye lashes I've ever seen on a cute!

American Idol

I loved AI last night....Michael Jackson has some good songs! My favorite singers last night were Matt Giraud, Adam Lambert, and Danny Gokey. I thought they did great!

Predictions for tonight:

Ok, I'm going to say Jorge Nunez and Michael Sarver will make an early exit tonight.

What are your predictions??

Happy #5 Kennedi!!!

Today was so fun! Kennedi turned 5 years old!

This morning when she was getting ready for school...she had this little made up song that she kept singing "I'm the birthday girl", it was so funny.

(don't mind the big wad of gum in her mouth)

We had a party for her at the park and the wind was blowing about 100 miles/hr. The 14 kids that were there didn't seem to mind though. Everyone had a great time!
After her party, Shane and I took her bowling in Ephraim. We had lots of fun together....Kennedi even bowled a STRIKE...pretty exciting!
Happy Birthday Kenna....we LOVE you!

Blessing Day

Yesterday was so special. We blessed Daxton, and Shane gave him such a wonderful blessing.
Dax got a little fussy during it...but not too bad (I knew I should have sent the binky with him, as you can see from pictures, he is a binky baby!).

Kennedi got up and bore her testimony all by herself, and did such a good job.

Afterwards, we had a luncheon for all of our family and friends at the Salina senior center. Everything went great! Thank goodness my parents were there to help us, we couldn't have done it without them. We had about 40 people there. It was so nice of everyone who came.

Kennedi turns 5 years old on Wednesday, so we sang happy birthday to her and let her open some presents from our family.

(Shane's mom made her the cute outfit she is wearing)

When it was all over, we took these lovely family pictures (next time I'll remember to take them before all the chaos and clean-up).

Also want to throw in that we had Dax weighed last week, and at 6 1/2 weeks old, he weighed 7lbs 10oz, so he is still just a little guy!
