Which Makeover Should I get?

Image

Prepared

After having no power for three days, I noticed exactly what we're really needing in case of emergencies.
Here are some things that most people don't really think about that I'm rounding up.
-Extra cash
-Important Documents
-Gasoline
-Generator
-Camping Stove
-Chain Saw
-Wipes
-Trash bags
-Medicines
-Pancho
-Utinsels (plastic and paper)
-Extra batteries
-More water
-First Aid Kit

I feel such a need to really be prepared

Talent!

We had a ward Primary Talent Show last night. Hyrum and Ginnie sang Called to Serve. They weren't a bit shy-they went up and sang two verses without second thought (this was all Hyrum-his memory...he just picked it up and sang it over and over with Ginnie following right behind). We got so many compliments that night and the next day from anyone and everyone. Even while Dan was running this morning-someone a block away and called out-"Dan Wheeler, you're kids were great last night!"
I was laughing and almost crying most of their performance because of how unshy they were and Ginnie kept going in and out from the microphone. She really found her voice toward the middle of the second verse.
I was so proud.

One thing I really love about here is that I'm constantly running into people I know-and already have a big group of friends, all young Mom's-all awesome. I'm so grateful to be here!!

OUR TREE

Image
As some of you know, we got a bit of the aftermath of Texas hurricane last Sunday by way of a wind storm. It knocked over our second biggest tree in the front yard and we lost power for three days which was an adventure. So many people came to our aid. We have an awesome community and ward and we didn't lack a thing. Actually, we were quite pampered. So here's the pictures that I managed to get before dropping our digital camera off the top of the refrigerator (in a hurry to go) and busting it. Dan spent all of Monday chopping up what he could with his heavy duty trimmers, and some guys from the ward came over with their tools to help with the trunk later that evening.

Taking a BIG break from unpacking

Image
This is my haircut...I layered it about a month ago but had to fix it and just found the haircutting things to give the boys a haircut. I must say, theirs turned out better than ever. When we were first married, it took me two hours to cut Daniel's hair. Now after five years of marriage, it usually doesn't take more than ten minutes to do either Dan or Hyrum. They look handsome, if I can manage, I'll sneak a picture of both of them soon.
And this is me and my little Princess. She also wanted a haircut, so I trimmed hers just a little. She's got to do everything her brother does, what can I say?

Our House

We've moved in if you haven't already figured that one out.
The kitchen and my room are the last to be unpacked, and a few more book boxes. Our house is awesome! All the walls in each of the rooms are painted and everything just feels nice and comfortable, and modern. I love that. I don't know the first thing about interior design, but somehow I know when things just feel right and this house feels right. I LOVE it! The girls' room is a brilliant pink color with bright yellow in the closet. The formal dining room is salmon pink with creme. It's all sponge-texture painted and nearly all the closets and pantry's have all sorts of shelves and fancy organizers as to make organizing easy.

I got a bit burnt out after about five days of non-stop working. After a couple days of rest, I'm getting up to working some more. My poor kids have been neglected because of it. But soon, it will just be our regular day to day activities and they&#…
