Girly Things

So today Kailea was playing with those same two neighbor boys and there was a few funny moments I'd like to record. First, she was showing them her "haar spelletjes" aka hair thingies - berrets that sort of thing. And the one little boy who is amost 5 only has 3 brothers and no sisters says "what's that?" And Kailea is practically yelling in his ear (kids talk loud) it's a HAAR SPELLETJE. Almost like she's saying it in a "duh" kind of way. And this little boy was like "huh"- he just didn't get it.

And then she pulls out her lipsmackers lip balm and puts it on her lips and the boys are just staring at her with their mouths open wide - in amazement - what is that? And even though I've told her several times, it's only for your lips, she puts it on her fingernails and then they all put it on their finger nails and next thing you know - it's all gone.

I find this very amusing - these little boys completely in awe of her because she's really the only little girl they play together with. And she is such a girly girl. They are curious about hair thingies, lip balm, etc.

The other thing that is interesting it that Kailea is a very bossy kid. She is telling them what to do and very much "directing" the other kids. They some how don't seem too phased by this and just take her orders. She says we are having a birthday party and then they go okay and start playing with balloons or do whatever she tells them too. Then she says, we are playing with dolls and they do that for a little bit, at least.

It's very different from when she plays with her other female friends - that's when I see them fighting more. Like both girls want to tell each other what to do and how to play this or that and then they get in a fight. How is it that boys just do whatever girls tell them to do?

I guess she should enjoy it at this age - because one day that will not be the case. Those boys will run away when that happens :)

Big Bossy Sister in the making- I am so proud of her (with a tear in my eye)! Maybe the boss won't run away. She'll find one so smitten with her he'll do anything to make her happy.

Oh YEAH... she's totally got that big bossy thing down... I'm really trying to break her of it - but with no luck :(

she is really excited for another baby though - that doesn't seem to bother her.

She'll be moving into the bigger room and feeling all proud and bigger for that, too...

yeah, i'm sure she'll have no problem snatching a boy - she is cute afterall :)

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah
By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
