Spring Fun!

March was SO beautiful this year! Would you not agree? We really spent as much time as we could outside & leaving the doors open to cool things off. But now the flies are coming...ahh!! And it's almost time to turn on the A/C- so we are enjoying it while we can!

Jack-Jack loves to sit out in the tire chips....and chew on them occasionally!

He LOVES the SWING now! I can sit them out there and get a few things accomplished in the's great!

The kids are seriously obsessed with getting the eggs each day from our 6, now 5 chickens. (We had an accidental drowning in the horse trough) :( It is so fun though to have your own eggs, and the kids love their "chore"!

Olivia LOVES her cousin Hannah & especially that she's right next door! It reminds me of me & Cindy growing creative times! (Their dolls are back to back in the swing!)

......"I get the tingles in a silly place......It starts in my toes......and I crinkle my nose!" (Colbie Caillat's song "Bubbly".....the best song ever in case you havn't heard it!)

....Until next March!

My own Benjamin!

So if you have never seen this movie/ must stop what you are doing and go watch it!

7 Brides for 7 Brothers is just so dear to my heart! I can't even tell you how many times I've seen it!

So Queen Creek Performing Arts is finally doing this play this year and we are so excited because Brent is going to be in it! He just found out last night that he made it as Benjamin (the really cute one!) and he's excited to be with his fellow brothers (Newell-Caleb; Mikey-Daniel; & Mark Baker-Frank!) So it will be fun!

Pretty dang close, huh!?

Congrats Honey!
Put it on your calendars now.....June 27th, 28th & 30th!

Beautiful Kids

I just love Easter Sunday.

It might be the only Sunday that I actually try to be completely ready for church with almost a whole half hour to go! .....gotta get those pictures in! (I lost my camera a couple of years ago in Hawaii with my Easters pictures on it- so I feel really guilty and can't miss a year!) here's my beautiful kids...and husband! :) They are the joy of my life.


Ever since I've watched Nacho Libre ("I've had diarrhea since last Easters"), I can't help but say "Easters" now instead of just "Easter"! :)

Anyway....we had such a wonderful day! We got home from the trek the day before Easter- on Saturday afternoon. We didn't have much time to do a lot of fun Easter things, but we did do baskets! And we had a fun ward party a few weeks before where they dyed eggs & went on an egg hunt, so I just counted that this year!

Olivia was very worried about the Easter bunny this year. She was so worried about opening the front door after the Easter bunny rang the doorbell. She kept saying, "But the big scary Easter bunny's not going to be here, right!?" So then we watch Peter Cottontail and I reassured her that he was small and very nice! But she doesn't ever want to see him, so I'm fine with that! :)
And she LOVED her Care Bear I got her! She now has Sunshine Bear & Love-a-Lot...and I just love that she's playing with things that I loved when I was My Little Ponies too! I don't want her to grow up!
And then after all the chocolate & worry about the Easter bunny, she finally crashed!
