Having Problems putting in pictures

So we have been having problems trying to fit all our pictures in our post and trying to get them orgainized in the right place. So we're trying this layout of pictures to see if we can get it to work. If any one has any suggestion let me know.

Getting rallied up!
Picking the team name

The Springville Bears

This is the rookie season for Majlin on the Springville Bears.

As you can see she has opening day nerves.
Within seconds of the game beginning the tears began to fall as a little boy from the other team ran into her. From their things got worse before they got better.
When the ball was taken away from her, it might as well have been Erik taking the ball away from her. Frustration also set in with not being able to get the ball away from the other team.
Tearful cries of "I don't like this game," followed soon after.
The second half things did get a little better. Majlin and her best friend/Stylist got to be in the game at the same time, and Majlin began to enjoy the game a little more.
Boy is it tough to be a rookie.

What's up with your music?

I'm sure some of you are wondering, "What's up with your music selections".

When Majlin was only 3 days old, Deven was in the car with Majlin and she began to cry. Deven turned on the CD that was in the car, Eric Clapton's "One more car, One more rider", He turned it to Eric's version of Somewhere over the Rainbow. Majlin almost instantly began to calm down. It has been her favorite song ever since.

Next, about two years ago we put Majlin in a Big Girl Bed. She had a hard time so one Night Deven began to sing her Rainbow connection. So now everynight before Majin goes to sleep she makes her Daddy sing "Rainbow Songs".

Brandee's Favorite group is Depeche Mode, and Devens is anything Clapton.

Rubber Duckie is just a fun song both Majlin and Erik enjoy.

Hopefully that sheds some light on the subject.

More Baby bunny

I decided to take the baby bunny to my In-Laws house to let them see it before we took it to the rescue shelter.
Erik wanted to hold it so bad but he was being a little rough and so he only got to look at it and touch it.
So tiny
My nephew Sam loved the bunny. I think he would of liked to keep it too.

Baby Rabbit

About 3 weeks ago I saw a stray cat in the backyard that comes and visits us often and is very friendly. We decided to go out and say hi. We went out and he was by some shrubs in our yard. You could tell he was trying to protect something. He is a great hunter and always brings in animals in our yard that he has caught. So i was about to grab a stick to see what it was and i heard something squeaking so i started poking around the shrubs and it looked like there was a nest built in the shrubs and then all the sudden i see this thing that looks like a mouse and i was freaked and then i noticed that it had long ears and realized it was a bunny. You see we have had this rabbit in our yard right by the shrubs and it was so hard to get out of the yard. I didn't want the rabbit in our yard because we have zuccini plants growing and didn't want the rabbit to eat them. So all this time the rabbit was building a nest. There was only one baby rabbit and so i picked it up and saved it from the cat. Needless to say the kids LOVED it! They where so excited. Majlin wanted to keep it but i new if we kept it it would die. It probably was only a couple days old. So i found somebody who rescues wild animals and she said she would take it. So before we took it to the lady we took some pictures. Majlin wasn't very happy that we didn't get to keep it. I don't know if the rabbit survived or not but at least i saved it from the cat. It was to darn cute to let the cat eat. Needless to say i'm pretty positive that the cat had its brothers and sisters for breakfast because Deven saw the cat there earlier in the morning.

Majlins "First Haircut" additional

The following conversation occured while driving to get Majlins hair fixed.

Deven "Majlin do you like your haircut?"

Majlin "No."

Deven "Are you going to cut your hair again?"

Majlin " I didn't cut my hair. It was Magic."

Aren't kids wonderful.

Majlins "First Haircut"

This is Majlins "First Haircut". It is definitly not her fist, but it is her first one she has ever done herself.

Majlin and her "styling partner" Grace were at her house playing. They were cutting out paper dolls. They decided to cut each others hair with the crafting scissors they were using.

When Graces Mom dropped Majlin off was the first time anyone noticed that the two had given themselves haircuts.

The ironey is that Brandee over the weekend was telling everyone how Majlin had never gotten into scissors and never cut her own hair.

Isn't being a parent so much fun
