My baby has curly hair!!

A little while ago, I put some gell in Nena's hair to see what it would look like because her hair has a lot of curls in the back but they are just crazy. It looked so cute but when she went to sleep and woke up, the gell was out and it was crazy again. I realized that if I'm going to do her hair like that, it has to be after she sleeps.

Last Saturday we had a birthday party for my great grandma Nena LeSueur who turned 90 years old!! She is Nena's great great grandma and is who she got her name from! We ate some yummy dinner and had a program and watched a slideshow. It was a really fun night and a great celebration!!

D-Backs Game

On Tuesday night someone gave us tickets to the Diamondbacks game at about 6:00 and so we finished dinner really fast and left about 15 minutes later to go. It was a lot of fun even though they lost by a lot. Nena didn't really like just sitting so after a while we started walking around the ballpark and she loved just walking around looking at everything so thats how we spent a lot of the game. It was a lot of fun though, we have been wanting to go at least once this season and have never gone so it was fun to be able to go!

Grandpa Flake's 70th Birthday!!

This past weekend we went up to Snowflake to celebrate my grandpa's 70th birthday! It was a great weekend and it was fun to get away and spend time with family! On Saturday morning we went to the Snowflake Temple to watch my aunt and uncle get sealed to three kids that they have recently adopted. It was a neat and happy experience to be able to watch that little family become sealed together! Later that afternoon, all the adults that could went back to the temple to do sealings as couples. It was fun to be with just family and it was another great experience! That night, we had a surprise party for my grandpa's birthday. It was a lot of fun, we ate some delicious bbq and had a little program! It was a good Labor Day weekend!!

Over the weekend we painted Nena's toenails for the first time. This is as good as we could get because she kept flinching but they still look cute!
