Just a quick video for dad... Heidi the Hairdresser

Hey there! I know we just got to chat with you today (yay!) but here's a video for you for tomorrow. We love you!

Look Dad, no crying!

I guess the two trips to the pool have cured Heidi of her fear of having water poured on her head... at least temporarily. We love you!

Bunny bunny

A quick video for the daddy and other viewers. :-)

We went to the White's house this morning to see their prize-winning bunnies. Wow! They are beautiful, so soft, and we learned a lot about what it takes for a bunny to be "just right" for showing them at the Stock Show or other places. Very cool! Heidi loved poking her fingers in the cages and petting them (sometimes it looks more like hitting).

Enjoy! Thank you to Debbie and Parker for standing out in the heat to show them to us and tour us around, and for wrangling bunnies so Heidi could pet them. You guys are great! For those of you who don't know, Matt and I got engaged at the White's back when their hobby was horses instead of rabbits. We went horseback riding there and got engaged in the woods near their home. Love you guys! Thanks for the fun memories.

Little Theologian

Didn't have a chance to put up all the pics or try the video - maybe later this afternoon. In the meantime, I thought I'd share this one for daddy. :-)

DeeDee and I were working in the kitchen while Heidi played in the living room. We kept hearing a little rustle-rustle, so I figured she must be getting into some kind of trouble, tearing papers or something. Nope... this is what I found instead.

Starting out our week... Hi Daddy!

Let's see... since the other day, we've crammed in lots of fun with DeeDee and Papa. Sunday we went to church and Heidi had such a blast in the nursery that she didn't want to leave! A good sign. :-) We all came home and had lunch and then we ALL took a nap. What a great vacation for us! We keep staying up until midnight chatting and watching movies, so the naps have been good.

After naptime, we headed over to the Goodrich's house for a pool party and dinner. They have a great huge house and a fun pool for the kids, and lots of toys. Heidi got to play with their little girl, Helena, in the nursery at church in the morning, so they were instant buddies when we go to their house. They played inside with the play kitchen and everybody had a blast in the pool. Heidi doesn't like to sit in the floaties, but she loves being held and "swimming" around as you hold her on her tummy. She's learning to wiggle her legs and arms just a little bit, and can even cling to the side of the pool for a little while too.

When we got home, DeeDee and Heidi played play-dough a little bit before bed, and we actually got her down at 7:30! Not bad for one day... we packed it in. Today (Monday) we have been at home most of the morning playing and coloring, and we're going grocery shopping to cook stuff for the family reunion. Then I may sneak out and go shopping myself or go up to Stampede tonight to see friends.

We miss you daddy! We are having lots of fun and hope you are too. I bet it is incredible! Hopefully we'll talk to you this afternoon as you get ready to rest up for Mt. Sinai. Wow! We love you.

While you were out

Well Daddy, we promised you pictures while you are in Egypt, so here they are! We've packed a lot of fun into the first day here. Popsicles, swimming in the baby pool (maybe go to the Ulshes Monday), playing in the playhouse, upstairs and downstairs, lots of "bees", and reading books with DeeDee and Papa. The triumph of the day is playing in the baby pool in the front yard, Papa got in the little pool with her, and when he left to go to the garage, she got out and said, "Papa? Where go? Papa." So, after 2 years Grandpa is officially in the club of people that Heidi likes. :-) He even read her a story and tucked her in tonight and she didn't make a peep.

We're missing you and hoping you got some good rest last night so you could have a good first day! If we don't talk to you Sunday afternoon our time, we'll see you on Monday. We love you! It's only Day One but we miss you already. Excited to hear about your journeys from the day!
