Good, Better, Best

We “work at our responsibility as parents as if everything in life counted on it, because in fact everything in life does count on it.”

- Dallin H. Oaks, quoting President Hinckley in Good, Better, Best

THEY are the most important. Now go soak up some memories with your own children!

What's Goin' Down in Pepper Town

In our house lately, it's been allll about the Mavs. Drew has been a fan since he was about 14 years old, so this was a big deal for him. We were dating when the Mavs went to the Finals last time and I watched all those games, too. However, the Mavs let Drew down then and I was worried he'd be heartbroken this time around as well. During the last game (yesterday) I took this picture of Drew while the score was still close and he was really nervous: (Notice his "doll")

And then once they won, I broke out the sparkling cider & Drew and I toasted to the Mavs.

Also last night, Luke & Gracie wore matching PJs that my mom bought a while back. They look so cute all twinner-ed up!

Hair today, Gone tomorrow

The other day I decided I wanted to get a haircut for the summer. So I set up an appointment at JCPenney and said I wanted my hair to about my shoulders. But then the hair dresser and I decided to see if my hair was long enough to donate.

And the answer was YES! I have NEVER donated my hair before. I knew my sister-in-law Martha had (I think she's done it a couple times) but I have always been too chicken to cut it that short. I officially donated it to Locks of Love. And I feel really good about it. Good-bye 10 inches of hair.

Before (I was looking a little like a Mexican version of the girl on Tangled):

Annnnnd after:

SHORT, huh? And it'll go perfect with my new calling: 2nd counselor in the Primary presidency. This way the kids can't pull my hair. I obviously have no idea what goes on in Primary, but I'm gonna find out! And soon. Drew doesn't have a calling yet but he's pulling for ward greeter. The thing is, in our ward the greeters are about 90 years old. No joke. Maybe they'll bend the rules for him :)

Gracie's First Night in her Crib

Last night I got out of the shower and found Drew taking pictures of Gracie while she was lying in bed. He said he wanted to document her first night in her crib.

He's so sweet! I love him.
