Her very own library card!!

We registered Sis for Kindergarten!!! They gave her a packet of stuff, including things from the public library. There was a pic to color and turn in for a prize and a form to fill out to have her very own library card!! She is getting so big, she loves to go to the library and now even more because she is a big girl and can do it herself!!

My Marmee


I love my Mom. She is wonderful in so many ways!! Months ago, Sis called her and randomly asked if she was coming to visit us for Easter, so she did!! She flew in the Sat before and stayed the whole week with us!! We had so much fun doing lots of stuff like, shopping, going to see the Titanic exhibit at the Museum, embroidering, going on walks, watching movies, making cupcakes, eating snacks, playing games, making crafts, talking and so much more. I love having her come and visit, she is such a huge help with the kids and all that needs to be done around the house. We have so much fun together, I keep trying to talk her into moving to Idaho but I'm pretty sure she's not going to budge!! Thanks so much for coming Mom, and for everything. We love you so much and miss you tons!!!

Lots of Easter fun!!

We had so much fun for Easter!! For FHE the week before we died easter eggs, the kids loved it and we ran out of hardboiled eggs just as their creative juices were starting!! My Mom came to visit right before and we had TONS of fun with her, (I'll save that for another post) The Easter Bunny sent J a text that he stopped by our house on Sat while we were out on a walk and left our baskets so the kids and Lita went searching for them! Sun J and Sis watched the sunrise, that's a tradition I'm still not into yet (too early for me!!haha) We went to church on Sun and then a walk, the kids were buzzing from all the sugar. Later in the week we decorated egg-shaped cupcakes and they turned out almost too pretty to eat!! We had so much fun, we love that this is another holiday when we get to remember our Savior and that He Lives!! And also have some fun with an imaginary person who leaves us goodies and suprises!!!!

What the?????

I went to unload my camera and found these pics that I know I didn't take!! I was wondering who was the sneaky one to get a hold of my camera and do an impromptu shoot of the living room until I saw the last pic. JJ took a pic of his shirt!! Maybe he'll be a world famous photographer someday!

Jam, jam who's got the jam!!


Does anybody else remember that song?? Anyways, Albertson's had a super-duper deal on strawberries so I embarked on my second-ever jam making experience!! I made strawberry freezer jam, the kids helped stir and we ate a little bit too!! Somehow it makes me feel like more of a homemaker and woman to open my freezer and see it stocked full of homemade jam!! (We still have a year supply of the peach jam that I made last year, you'd think we'd be sick of it by now but it's still yummy!!!)
