Tag... I'm It!

5 Interesting Things About Me

Okay, Shalon tagged me a while ago and I've been racking my brain... I am not that interesting... but here's what I came up with
1 I was born 6 weeks early and I weighed 4 lbs 14 oz

2 When I was 2 years old I fell and hit my mouth on the bathtub, and it left a hemangioma (a blue mark) above the left side of my mouth. It's been there ever since

3 When I smile I have a dimple on my left cheek under my eye where I had plastic surgery as a 3 year old (I fell and a wire went through my cheek)

You can see numbers 2 & 3 in the picture below

4 When I was eight years old I had surgery on my arm. The bone broke in half and I had a metal plate put in, the plate is still there... so is the scar (kinda hard to see in this pic)

5 I was engaged when I was 17 years old... way too young. But I wouldn't take it back, I had to nab Russ while I could :)... We did wait til I was 18 to get married.

I tag Vanessa, Kari, Julie, and Melissa

Little Hands

Brecken and I had fun doing her nails... She's got the cutest little hands (a little bit of mother's bias going on there of course)

And the sweetest face (No mother's bias there... of course ;) )

First Trip to the Dentist!

Ok, I know that at age 3 and 1/2 this should not have been the first trip. But... it was.

Here she is right before we left (I'm just throwin' it in 'cause she's cute)

Here we are! Doesn't she look scared? (actually she's really focused on the TV on the ceiling)

There's a smile for mom :)

And of course Taylor was an angel the whole time (and yes, it took a while)

And what made it all worth while? The infamous "Prize if You're Good" (I wonder if they really deny the bad kids a prize). As you can tell Breck is in her jamies and after a whole day of playing... that slinky isn't going back together :)

We don't need to talk about how many cavities etc... Let's just say Brecken LOVED the dentist and we will be going back.... soon :)

Nothing Exciting, Just Life :)

Since not too many major events have happened in the Harrington Household lately, I thought I'd throw in a few pictures of the trivial.

Our McDonalds Getaway:

And Here is Taylor in her "Johny Jumper" I think she missed the "Jumper" part... She seems to think it's a "Henry Hang There" But hey, if she's happy, I'm happy.

And the Harrington Sunday Afternoon Ritual:

I love the fingers poking through :)

No, mom is not excluded from the ritual (dad either, he just happened to wake up five minutes before I did)

Good Times!

Pampered and Spoiled!!

Yes, I am guilty. I was spoiled rotten on my birthday. Who, you may ask, spoiled me? None other than the man I married. You will all note that he is to receive "Best Husband of the Year" award.

First it was out to lunch (after voting. of course) at Carl's Jr. Can you find Brecken?

And then Russ dropped me off at a Salon and Spa where for 4 and 1/2 hours I was pampered and spoiled!!!! SO NICE!!!

Of course the Before and After... not that I'm proud of either.



And while I was away, Russ had someone clean our house while he did all the laundry, and organized EVERYTHING!... Including a party!

And what party is complete without cake and ice cream. Or, wait, my favorite... Ice cream cake :)

And yes, the spoiling didn't stop there, there were presents to open.

And for all that I have to say....

And even that won't cover it. I Love you Hon!!!

Happy Halloween!

Just wanted to share a few pictures from Halloween. Our Little Ladybug and Chubby Bunny were just too CUTE! Well, we think so :) We had a fun ward party, and then went around the block trick-or-treating. Good times.

The little ladybug herself:

Ooooh, and the cute little bunny:

Together (too cute):

Dad and his girls:

The fam (well our ladybug was off having too much fun):

Some of the fellow trick-or-treaters:

This picture is so cute to me, I can only imagine what they are talking about :)

Back at home enjoying the loot:

Oh, this happens all too often... doesn't even phase her :)

The two sisters. How precious!! And yes, that is an actual smile on Taylor's face!
