Sunday Best and min photo shoot.
We played pictionary for FHE and Josie did such a good job. She did the stake conference one, complete with the flowers on the stand.
These kiddos love to watch shows and one day I caught them doing this. Josie remembered the password on Jordan's ipad after just hearing it once. The sneaky little girl.
Josie is in a dance class. She loves it. It is at the church and free. I get to visit with friends and Dylan runs around the gym. We all win!
Josie's birthday cake. It is a paint palate. She was so excited for her birthday and we threw a fun Art Party with all her friends. Bonnie and Jordan were great helpers and we managed to keep 15 kids happy and busy for two hours.
Just some of the activities. We did silhouette paintings, spin art, painted rocks, photo booth, pinata balloons, and face painting.
Instead of presents, I had the kids bring a coloring book or some markers. Josie was thrilled with her new stash of art supplies.
Playing ink a bink with everyone. I am amazed at how these kids love this game and will sit still for it. My friend took Dylan and Maudie during the party, which was such a help. This is the fun hairdo Maudie came back with.
Saturday, Josie's real birthday we drove up to Lindon to Aunt Leigh's house. Grandpa and Grandma Yates came, along with Chelsea and her girls. Aaraon was there with Sierra too. We went to the temple while the kids played at the park.
We went down to the provo river walk and had a blast walking the dogs.
All the cousins had a blast playing with each other. I am so glad we got to do this. My kids love their cousins they don't get to see a lot.
Josie doing her puzzles she got for her birthday
Another trip to the park, complete with a packed lunch.
Just some pictures from our everyday life. The kids got these mouth pieces from a happy meal and love them.
I did the ones of the balloon and umbrella girl, that I am going to put in Josie and Maudie's room.
Family Night at the Wave pool with dinner at the park before hand.
I love these moments when my children play so well together and give me a break and a chance to catch my breath.
These are our valentine monster boxes we made.
We had a no TV week and the kids and I did it. We were rewarded with some yummy ice cream.
We had a lot of fun having Daivanie here for the week. We went to the library, swiming pool and had fun activities all week. For FHE we talked about having our home a temple and the kids built temples out of blocks.
Josie's Ant she made at the library out of the engineering blocks.
We got some much needed bedding at our house and we are loving it.
I drove up to Centerville to take Daivanie back. I spent a few days there. We had a so much fun. Here Dylan is playing in one of the shopping cart trucks that my dad got from the dumpster. We went to Kohls and found these awesome treasures of life sized Olaf. The kids were thrilled to play with them while my mom and I looked at pillows.
Benson got his eagle scout and so I made him this cake. It turned out so cool and it was super easy. It was my mom's birthday and we went out to eat. Bart came over a couple times and it was good to visit with him. Maudie learned to stand up to things.
We took the kids to two libraries. One in Centerville and this awesome one in sugarhouse. Free entertainment!!!!
My cousin and her husband have opened a gym in sugarhouse and we went to the open house. I am happy for them and wish them the best.
For my mom's birthday I went couch shopping with her and this is the couch she bought!
Here it is in her house.
Bart and Ben playing a game I bought for my kids at the DI
So everytime Bart comes over they pull out the pet rat. Pinky is still around, Brain got fed to a snake in exchange for so help on Bonnie's Christmas present. Dylan loved playing with it.
My dear sister Bonnie got her mission call and announced it on Saturday night after Ben's eagle. She came up with Jordan (who was at university of scouting) and Camille (Who was down for soccer tryouts at USU eastern). She is going to the Virginia Chesapeake mission and leaves June 10. Such a fun weekend to spend with my family.
Rainbow park on a beautiful day.
I get to do some more work for my UConn professor again this year. I had a web conference training and luckily the kids did rather well playing in the back room.
Maudie is still a little unsure of herself when she stands.
Friday night, not many option but watching movie, so we went tot he church instead and played basketball and the kids rode on the wiggle car. Such a delight.
We stopped and cleaned off the truck on the way home. It was a muddy mess.
We finished the night by cleaning off our children. They were a muddy mess too.
