Money Well Spent

A little over 17 months ago Lauren got her braces on. It was a much needed thing as you can tell by the before picture. Unfortunatley Parley and I both needed braces (gratefully we both got them), so our kids don't stand a chance. We found a great orthodontist who just completed "phase 1." She now has to wear retainers at night until all of her baby teeth come out and the permanent ones come in. Then we will start the more expensive "phase 2." Thank goodness for braces!!

Organize with Jane

"My good friend Jane" (that's what my mom always says when she describes her friends) is an organizing queen. She has even started her own blog (a few months ago) with organizing tips and tricks. Every year this is one of my new year's resolutions. Every year I fall short. This is my year!! Jane even has checklists that you can print out. Happy organizing.

p.s. Jane, hope you don't mind that I shared :)

Teddy Bear Town

I need to do a little backtracking. On the night we went downtown to see the lights we stopped by Teddy Bear Town first. The kids loved it, especially Lauren. It was in the Grand America hotel up in one of the suites on the 23rd floor. It had an amazing view of the city and had tons and tons of bears. The one of Lauren is for Paige since Panda's are her favorite :)
