First Hair Cut!

We have been letting Sydney's hair just grow since she was born but we finally decided to get her a trim. She did not enjoy it!! Usually she really likes my hairdresser, Joel, but not when he's got scissors in his hands and trying to cut her curls! She was fine afterward...but definitely made it known that she did not want anyone messing with her hair!! Too cute!! Thanks, Joel...and sorry!!

She started out so excited to be there!!

Then she started to get a little worried...

She wanted to hold on to her hair so I had to hold on to her hands.

"Make him stop, Mom!"

She was fine after it was over... And checked out her new look!

Dancing on GMA

Jason Pederson and I did some dancing on Good Morning Arkansas Monday morning to help promote an event we'll be participating in on Thursday night. It's called "Dancing with Our Stars" and it raises money for the Arkansas branch of the Children's Tumor Foundation which helps fund the Neurofibromatosis (of NF) Clinic at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

Check it out!!

Little Rock Family Article

Check out the wonderful article Little Rock Family did on my sweet family. They did such a great job! To be honest, Sydney was not very cooperative when they were trying to get photos of all of I was so thrilled to see the pics turn out as well as they did.

Placerville Family Camp

Placerville is a church camp in the Black Hills of South Dakota. As a child, my family went to the family camp every year. My mom and sisters all still live in South Dakota and go every year but I haven't been back in more than a decade. This place means so much to my family that when my dad died (five years ago) there was a plaque and beautiful, peaceful area dedicated to him. This past July, I finally got to return to camp and introduce Sydney to everyone. The best part was that my mom had no idea we'd be showing up! My sisters help set the surprise up and the expression on her face was priceless when we surprised her!!

My mom, my sisters, and their families

Me and my girl!

This is the plaque for my dad

I loved this moment! It's almost as if Sydney knows that this is in honor of her grandpa!!!
