I dont have a whole lot of pictures of my kids with my Dad, so I was so excited to get one with all of them. I absolutly love it!!!
Every year, we usually do an easter egg hunt of some sort. In law school, they had some really neat ones and we did at least 2 every year. When we got home, our ward and our parents ward always did one that we would go to. I guess when there is still snow on the ground and its still in the 30's, its not so fun. I couldnt find one in all of Park City. I found tons in Salt Lake, but I wasnt about to pay $10 a kid to find plastic eggs. Sorry. So, when Bill got home he hid some around the house and the kids seemed to be just fine with that.
Lucky for me, it doesnt take a whole lot to make these kids happy. Im very blessed to have such sweet kids who love each other most the time and just like being together no matter what we do. I think I was blessed with these kids becasue im so not creative. Although I strive to be... someday!!!!
2. Michael Johns (my FAV)
3. Carly Smithson (Even though she has already made lots of money, I still love her to death)
4. Syesha Mercado (she seriously has the all around talent. She can sing, she has personaltiy, she looks the part. I love her)
5. David Cook. (His Lionel Richie song this last week just shows how talented he is. The only thing...I cannot stand his facial expressions. Bill and I just crack up. You gotta have a rocker in there)
My runners up...
1. Jason Castro (not a fan of the hair, but I love his voice)
2. Brooke White (gotta give some love to the hometown girl. I love her deep, raspy voice)
This is such a talented top 12. Its going to be sad to see any of them go from this point on. I loved David Hernandez until I found out he used to be a male stripper-that kinda ruined it for me. This is the first season that Bill has watched it with me and I love it. Finally a show we can agree on. On each elimination night, we pick our castoffs and whoever loses has to get up with the kids the next day. So far...Shelly 2, Bill O. I dont know why he trys, I am ALWAY right.
Also, my new favorite show, ELI STONE. If you havent watched this show, DO!!! It is clean, it has a good message and its so entertaining. Its on ABC on Thursday nights. Watch it!!
This is her watching Backyardagins. She likes to lay on her back, just like her brothers.
Loves the bubbles!!!
This is her new way to crawl and walk all at the same time. I dont think she likes the wood floor.
Can you tell we just love this little munchkin!!!
Noah was in his first science fair. It was kind of an easy experiment considering we started 2 days before the fair and Bill was taking the Bar. He didnt win anything, but he did a good job and had fun doing it.
The kids are enjoying the snow before it melts and they play outside as much as they can. Its not so horribly cold anymore, so they actually have fun. Noah decided to make the ultimate sleddng hill and set his ramps up in 2 different spots. He got so much speed that we had to have him use a smaller sled and put on a helmet. Noah almost killed himself and Tyson ran into the house.
Avery loves my moms floor.
These 2 crazy kids got into all sorts of trouble and loved every minute of it.
I long for the days of eating outside in the sunshine!!!
(These kids all got haircuts right after they ate lunch)
Its so much fun to have a scout. Noah got his Bear award and the whole family was there to see it. Isnt he soooo handsome.
This night was also a cardboard car derby. It was so fun to see all these creative boys and their cars.
They had to run around the obstacle course 15 times. These poor kids, I dont think I could have done 3 laps. They all looked like they were gonna die.
We got a pass to the Thanksgiving Point Museum. The kids love it and they seriously could go everyday. They love all the HUGE dinosaurs and all the fun, hands on exhibits.
I finally was able to get Tyson into a preschool. I guess its technically not a preschool-just a few moms taking turns teaching the kids. Its been so fun for him because he gets to go to his friends houses and learn. Its been awesome!!! This week, we went to the Discovery museum with his class. Caleb loved that he got to tag along.
Caleb was in heaven with this horse. I think he thought it was real.
Tyson is such a climber. This was the perfect place for him. Caleb even got the hang of it and now hes climbing all over the house.
