New Recipes, Tricks, and Lots of Growing Up!

I have a LOT to catch up on! In my defense I've been doing a LOT of updating on Daniel's blog. After you finish up here you should hop over there and check it out. The boy has been busy! 

WARNING- this post is in no particular order, and is LOADED with pictures!

Sunday is becoming a favorite day in the Grant household. Michelle LOVES going to nursery and especially loves fast Sundays when she can go up to the microphone and bare her testimony. It really is so precious! She is growing up so fast it kills me!

One of the absolute best recipes I've tried lately has been a steal from Pinterest. It's super simple and SO yummy! All you do is buy a refrigerated pack of pizza dough, roll it out, fill it with whatever breakfast ingredients you like (we chose eggs, cheese, salsa, bacon and sausage), and bake! YUM!! This one is going in the recipe book for sure!

I think I already have this picture posted on here from a little while ago, but I just love it! One of Tina's favorite things in the whole world is taking a bath! And now she's big enough that she can sit in the tub and take a bath with Michelle! The girls both think it's so fun to be in the tub together!



Ta-Da! Lol, Tina is a pro flipper now! She still won't do it more then once without getting really mad, but we're still super proud of her.

A few weeks ago we have a pretty big storm pass through our neighborhood. It was big enough that it knocked our entire fence down! After a few trips to Lowes and some MAJOR help from our handy-dandy- brother-in-law, Ben, Michelle was able to get it back up and lookin' good!

 Oh, yeah, Bryan was there too. ; p Just kidding babe! Bryan did an AWESOME job digging out all the old rotten posts, replacing them with shiny new metal posts and piecing the whole thing back together. 

 Tina doesn't really understand the whole sippy thing. She does love to drink out of cups though. I'm still not quite sure how of even if I should fix this problem.

We have recently celebrated LOTS of birthday's! Unfortunately, the only picture I have of any of them is this one. Yay, for Grandma Lynne's birthday! It was a very fun night. (P.S.- Michelle colored big sheets of paper and I cut the letters out of it to make that banner.) As soon as I get my phone back in working order I will have more picture to post of everyone else's birthdays. 

It turns out that our bushes outside flower! I think we cut them back a little too soon last year so we didn't get to see the flowers. AND the flowers that they produce smell wonderful! AND they attract tons and tons of butterflies! I'm not sure how many you can see in this picture, but there most have been a least 30 butterflies on each bush! It was an awesome sight! Needless to say, we won't be ripping these bushes out like I had originally planned. 

Speaking of things flowering that I NEVER thought would flower... My Alyssums are finally starting to bloom! I honestly thought they would just grow leaves forever and never sprout flowers. So, I'm very excited!!

Remember this beautiful little girl? Remember how little and sweet and innocent she is? Well, she's still all of those things, but one major thing has changed...

Michelle had her very first hair cut! One Tuesday, May 29, 2012 Michelle went in to see Erica and had 2" cut off from her hair! I was a nervous wreck... and I almost cried. I kept it together though, and Michelle was a prefect client for Erica! She sat very still, looked down when she was told, and really did a great job! Since both of us were so brave we decided that we deserved a special treat. So after we left we headed to Sonic and got some yummy slushes! 

I love my family so much I can't put it into words.

Savannah is the same way with the sippy cup thing... it's a chew toy for now but she can drink out of the side of the cup like a champ. Your babies look so sweet!!!
