Snip Snip........

Saturday night I was giving the boys a trim on the front porch when Savanna arrived with intentions on her mind.  Savanna has been asking for months for me to cut her hair.  I was so afraid it would be a huge puff ball if I did.  She came out and asked if I would cut her hair too.  Something came over me and I did it.  She or I either one could be more happy with it.  It is just beautiful.  It looks so much thicker and just gorgeous!  All she can talk about is her hair.  She is always in the bathroom combing it and flipping it around.  She cracks me up!

Well, Loralie saw what was going on and begged me for an hour to cut hers too.  She wanted an align cut.  After much debate I took a stab at it.  I couldn't believe how well it turned out!  I have seen mine cut so many times that I went with what I've seen.  She LOVES her cut too.  They both looks so cute with short hair!  I didn't do a before, but her hair was almost to her waist!  Plus last week she earned her money and got her beloved feather she has been saving for. It is really cute too!
Carlee just wanted layers and bangs. Her bangs are so cute!  I love how my girls already know what they want and like and are becoming such sweet beautiful young ladies!

One of our peach trees was very fruitful this year.  We had so many yummy beautiful peaches.  After we ate till we had our fill we froze the rest so they may be enjoyed this winter.

Hunter and I picked all the peaches this year together.  We had such a delightful time.  It is amazing when you are doing some kind of work with your children how they will open up and tell you all about their lives.  I learned many things about school, friends, and things we wants to do.  Hunter is our BUSY son.  He loves to play and work outside.  He is always moving and asking questions.  Hunter is quick to love and forgive.   I love these special one on one moments with each of my children.  I am learning to live in those moments more and forget about all that is going on around me at the time.  

I am {cherishing the simple special moments}
of picking peaches with an incredible little spirit we've been bless with.

{Fisher is 3}

To start the {celebration}this year my sweet sister Em and her family send Fisher this in the mail.  He thought it was pretty cool to get a letter at the post office!

Thanks Em, we love you.  Can you tell by the look on his face??

He carried this around all day and showed everyone that he saw.

 By the end of day it was pretty worn out and loved.

Fisher was so excited for his {Birthday} this year!  All day long he had a smile on his face and milked it for all it was worth. 

He brings such a big smile to my face!

He got a soft cuddly Lightening McQueen blanket this year. He loves to sleep with it.

When daddy and the kids got home we took them to the wash to play.  Fisher loves to splash in the water.  He was {WAY} excited about that.

It turned out to be a muddy disaster......

So we went home and sprayed them off in the hose.

Then came is excitement.  Grandpa Saline pulled up and it was time for {Cake}!!

Fisher was so happy about his candles!

He said it was the {BEST BIRTHDAY EVER}!!!!

Love those words.

pure enjoyment

{Aravaipa Canyon}

We continued to celebrate the beautiful August weather by driving to Aravaipa this weekend. One of my most {favorite} places to go.  The drive is gorgeous and the views are breath taking.  We rolled down our windows and enjoyed the fresh air.  The grass was a luscious green and the view of the mountains were amazing.  It is so peaceful out there. 

We have decided to put this one at the top of our favorites list!  But these days anyplace with clear cool water is a hit with the kids!  Jeremy and I even put our feet in and gave our tired feet a
"mud treatment".  There is such a calming affect to put your feet in creek water.  I so grateful that Heavenly Father has given us the beauty of nature to go  and retreat to so we can relax and find peace within.  Something about being still in nature will bring you so close to heaven.

Jeremy was walking in the water and he stepped in some mud that sucked in his shoe.  It took his a while to get it find it and get it out.  It was the weirdest thing!

Our time there was wonderful.  The way home was perfect.  It is gorgeous there when the sun is lowering.  The kids were worn out eating their snack, and we had the windows down with the breeze in our hair. 

No better way to end a perfect day!
