Ashlynn had her eyebrow super glued. You can't tell very well in this picture. (THAT IS A GOOD THING)The other day Ashlynn fell on the bunk bed and split her eye open. The urgent care wanted to do stitches. They said glue wouldn't hold. I said no WAY glue will hold and I want glue. The eye brow I had a stitch in now has no hair in that spot. It drives me CRAZY. I really didn't want that for her whole eyebrow. J.D. & I took her to the ER. The lady was GREAT. She came in totally confident & said cosmetically this should be glued. She sealed it up & we were off. You can hardly even tell she hurt it. Hopefully when the glue & scab is gone it still looks as good.
J.D. & I went to WICKED last night and it was as AMAZING the second time around as it was the first. J.D. called the morning of the play to tell me this joke. Why don't you want to hang out with twin witches? Because it is too hard to tell which witch is which. HA HA!

J.D finished his 2 week summer camp training YAHOO.

Sadly I think SUMMER is officially OVER! The kids want me to turn on heat. I'm cheap and am going crazy packing and cleaning so I'm warm. I keep telling them to put on more cloths or work harder so they can warm up.
(p.s. the day after I wrote this I turned on heat)
Daxon ran the mile and did AWESOME. 7 minutes and 48 seconds. That would probably KILL me. I was so proud of him. 2 weeks ago he said he wanted to race. I didn't really want to pay 3 dollars for him to run a mile so I said if you will run a mile every day for the next 2 weeks I'll give you the money. Well the eager beaver agreed and in 2 weeks improved his time by a FULL minute. I thought that was AMAZING.

The other day the school told me to come pick up Britton because he had a fever. As I went to leave they said he can't return for at least 24 hours after his fever has broke. Well he woke up the next morning filling great but it hadn't been 24 hours so he had to stay home. To keep from going stir crazy we headed to the zoo. IT WAS WONDERFUL! I loved how calm it was. Ashlynn & Britton were so fun. I may have to take him out of school to go to the zoo more often. Ashlynn was so cute and in awe with all the animals. The zoo was slow enough that for the first time she was able to not be in a stroller and just wonder SHE LOVED IT!

These videos crack me up. After I stopped recording she took off after the bird again and threw a fit as I pulled her away. I couldn't stop laughing. I love how the only thing Britton wants to do is scare it away. Such a boy thing to do.


  1. Looks like you guys are having fun and are busy as usual! You have an adorable family!! So sad about Ashlynn's eye. Glad they glued it for you though!

  2. o.k., the first thing I thought when I saw that adorable pic of Ashlynn is "I want a girl so bad!" She is just so cute! I love the videos from the zoo too. I can't wait to see you guys!

  3. I love all your posts! Congrats to JD for finishing yet another training marathon! and Congrats to Dax for running a mile in such a great time! I'm so proud of him! sounds like he has a lot of determination! I love the videos of Brit and Ash! sooo cute! The age our "babies" are at right now is so much fun. I wish they would stay little for longer. It looks like you had a great time at the zoo w/ just the 2 kids. That's nice sometimes. Love you guys! Have a great October.

  4. HELLO!!! I finally found your blog. Boy it sure sounds like you Phippen's have been all sorts of busy. I am so jealous that you went to see Wicked. I hope you guys are enjoying Fall time in Iowa. I have to admit....I would rather be in IA this time of year than in UT. I miss the pumpkin patch and Apple Orchard there. Oh well. Miss you guys. Good to catch up with what you have been up to.
