I have been waiting for this day for a long time.

I have always dreamed of the day that I would put my daughter in her first dance class.
So when my sister sent me a picture of her 2 year old daughter in her dance class, I immediately signed Sarah up.
I was a little nervous that she wouldn't like it, but I was more confident that she would love it.
  I have been waiting to use this tutu for a long time.  My Mom bought it for Sarah for her 1st birthday.



Sarah and her cousin, Ashley.  They were so funny together.

She had the best time.  She was seriously glowing.  I loved watching her dance.
She couldn't stop talking about her dance class and she kept asking to go all day.

 Is it weird that I want to cry when I watch this?

Easter part 2

My sister explained this event perfectly in her blog:
My parents did an outstanding job when they taught us
there is a time and a place to let your inner-child run wild.
The time and place usually occurs when we are all together...
Today's excuse was our belated Easter Egg Hunt.
I love my family.  We have so much fun together.

My kids and their cousins after their egg hunt!  We seriously have treats and snacks for months to come after this!
My boys have been dying over these shirts after they saw them online.  They were so excited to get them!

Dinosaur Park

A few weeks ago, Brian and I took the kids and their 2 friends, Cohen and Zoey to the Dinosaur Park. It was really cool. The kids loved it.

Oops. I don't think Cohen was suppose to be climbing on that. He looked so cute though.

Such cute girls. I love them together. I kept trying to take pictures of them. They got annoyed and started walking away. I told them to come back and they stuck their chins out and kept walking away. I think since they were together, they thought they could just do what they wanted. It was so funny.

We spent Easter weekend in St George. We might as well just move down there for the amount of time we spend there. We just love being outside where it is warm. My kids don't do well cooped up in the house all day.
I loved being able to take pictures of the kids outside. What I didn't love was the bright sun vs. shade in the pictures but oh well.


I love all this personality in these pictures. This boy is just bursting with energy. He is so fun and happy. He came home from school the other day and he was reading! I was so happy. He takes so much pride in his schoolwork all of a sudden and he has become a lot more responsible at home.

This was him pretending to be mad. He loves to make mad faces and then laugh. He doesn't do mad faces too well :)

She is starting to get a tiny bit of an attitude but then I tell her to be nice and she quickly says "Thowwy Mom"(sorry mom). I love to hear her talk. She is still the happiest little girl. She is always up for anything and rarely puts up a fight. She loves to do whatever the boys are doing.

So excited for a new Thimthuit (swimsuit).

Easter Egg Hunt

This first picture is my Granddad with Sam and Sarah. I wish everyone could know my Granddad. He is such a wonderful man. Half the time he was with the kids, he was dancing for them and we were all laughing. He is so happy. My grandparents spend Easter with us in St George every year. We love it!
My Grandma and Granddad did an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids and they loved it.

I am sure you are wondering where I got this beautiful outfit. Well let me tell you.
So I forgot my church outfit and was just planning on going in my shorts. Luckily my Grandma went to her closet and found one of her church outfits that she hadn't worn in years and let me wear it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I did.
It had huge shoulder pads.
I kept laughing during church because it looked so funny.

Caitlin's Wedding Shower

I have been friends with this group of girls for 20 years.
I remember sitting with 4 of them at recess every day on the grass while all of the popular kids played 4 square. Once in a while I would go hang out with the popular girls while they watched me from the grass but then I would just end up coming back with my friends on the grass.
When I got into high school, I didn't talk to them much and it wasn't until the last few years that we have become really close again. They accepted me back like we had never stopped talking.
They are the true definition of friends. They are so understanding and would do ANYTHING for me anytime. I love these girls.
Anyway, my friend Caitlin is getting married, so we threw her a wedding shower.

She is so happy.

A bunch of our mom's came. They are really close too. Haha cheese!
