Roberts Crafts

To all my Cedar City friends:Maybe you have heard that Roberts Crafts in Cedar City is planning to close in April due to their lease being up and wanting to consolidate a few stores. Cedar City can't afford to lose another store that is vital to our community! We are asking that everyone e-mail the Corporate Headquarters asking them to reconsider their decision. The link to the website is listed below. Thank you for your support!

We really need a craft store here, we really won't have anywhere in Cedar to buy cute scrapbooking items and I buy so much of my supplies for my business there. I really don't want to take all my business to St. George. I remember when I was little and my mom took me to the Saturday kids craft projects at Roberts. I was looking forward to doing that with my girls. It makes me so sad they are closing.

Weigh In

We went to Jaylee's check up and she is almost 7 months old. She weighs 14lbs 4oz (10%) and is 26 inches (45%) My biggest concern at this appointment was that she does not eat solid foods very well. She spits out almost everything we feed her and she gets a look on her face like it is disgusting. So I've tried everything I can think of. I tried mixing rice cereal with some baby fruits, breast milk, formula, smashed bananas. Then I tried mixed grain cereal with all of the above. I've tried it thin, thick, in a bottle, in a sippy cup and with a spoon. I've tried giving her just the baby fruits and vegetables without the cereal. The only solid thing she likes to snack on is animal crackers. So I told the Pediatrician this and he just looked at me with a blank stare, like he had never heard of a baby not wanting solid food. So he suggested this, LET HER FEED HERSELF THE CEREAL!! Can I just say it was the biggest mess ever. She did enjoy it though and I think she did eat some of it. Sheridyn was so worried about her making a mess, she was cleaning up around her with a rag. It was pretty funny. Well those of you who know rice cereal it is like glue! So I rinsed her off in the sink and gave her a bath that night and in the morning I still found rice cereal on her! I don't think we will be doing this every night. Anyone ever had this problem with their baby? I could use some suggestions. I really don't want to nurse her the rest of my life and she will not sleep more than 2 -3 hours at time at night because she wants to eat! And she will not take a bottle.

MESSY, but she loved it!

Dumont Sand Dunes

Every year we go to Dumont Sand Dunes in California for Presidents Day with my family and the last couple of years the Bates have come with us. It is so nice to get out of the snow and go play in 75 degree temperature. We love to ride on the sand dunes and enjoy seeing all the cool sand toys people have. If you have never been there it is a sight to see. It is like a mini city, there are tons of people and their trailers camping there, they even have a little shopping place. When it gets dark everyone goes over to "comp hill" and we watch the crazy people ride up the steep sand dune on their 4 wheelers and rails in the dark. This year we stayed the first night in Vegas at Treasure Island. We walked the strip with Sheridyn so she could see the Bellagio and stuff. It was really fun and very nice to stop half way to Dumont on the way down. The way home was really hard to have Sheridyn and Jaylee in the car for 6 hours. We really enjoyed Dumont this year, it was such nice weather the whole time. It was fun to have the Colton back from his mission to come with us, he has been missed the last 2 years.

Mary and I want the Pink Rhino but they guys were not up for it!!

Little Miss America

So we watched Miss America on Saturday and I had to post the cute pictures of Sheridyn. She wanted to dress up and she sang and danced when they did their talents. Then at the end she was copying Miss America's walk and wave. It was so cute.
