Moving, A Haircut and the Auto Collection

Things here at the Anderson household have been a little CRAZZZYYYYY!!! (yeah, like CRAZY!

We have FINALLY found a new place to live. It hasn't hit all of our check marks BUT it hits most of them.
Likes - 3 bedroom, 2 car garage and Kira likes the stairs, 1700+ square feet
Dislikes - Not such a big yard/outside space, 2 levels.... stairs. Different ward (despite my complaints I have made some fantatic friends and Kira loves her primary!!!)

So things here have been a little crazy! We signed the lease on the 10th and get the keys on the 24th. We are living amongst the boxes which are driving me and Jacob crazy but Kira seems to find fun.

Things here are now 1000% more crazy!!! But we are close and almost there.... this process is going to last at least another 4 weeks (with unpacking) but it will be worth it.

In between the packing of the boxes, our own Auntie M came up for a visit. The annual Hair Show was at the MGM and Kira and I got our hair cut for the summer....
Here are Kira's before pics...

And after a couple of long conversations and 2 inches lighter...... we have the after pics:
She loves it, I like that the curl is back and Jacob like's that it's still long

Lastly, the yearly tradition of the Father's Day Auto Collection. We went after church, Kira sang 'I'm so glad when daddy comes home" and another song I can't remember. She did well and stood right in front of us so we got a direct shot for her UUUUMMMMOOOAAAAEEE Kiss!

I LOVE the sense of history there! The cars are beautiful yes, but just look at the car above... look at what we used to drive... look how difficult that is. Then we had a great time at the Merrill's for some pretty yummy pulled pork (my favorite!!!)

So that's what's up with us... What's up with you?

Kira meeting Cars

We have famous people come and visit Vegas ALL the time and we never go and see them but when some very important celebrities came into town we had to take the time to go and see them. 'Mater, Lighting McQueen and one of the new stars of Cars 2, Finn McMissile. We had a little bit of a wait but it was worth it! Kira had a great time and she can't wait to go and see the movie in the theater (it will be her first theater movie that she will be awake for - I took her to see Enchanted when she was about 2 months old and she slept through the whole thing)

She had so much fun!!! Mater is probably her favorite!

Kira with Holly Shiftwell. - a new character in the movie

Finn McMissile -

Lighting McQueen!!!
This is her while we were in line. She was super excited and very well behaved.
