Second Half of March

As soon as Adam moved here he started looking for a dirt bike. The weather has been so great, they have started going together at least once a week.
It begins again.
As Ryan likes to remind me, I wanted him to find a hobby....
Jack got to have Tiggerific again! He sure loved that dirty thing
This is an every day thing now. She looks so big!
Since she can now pull herself up to things she has also figured out how to open these drawers. 
She pulls out all of the games and dvd's.
It's sad, sometimes she gets her arm stuck in the drawer...

Her little feet with her socks falling off
I sure do love that dirty face!
With the weather being so good Jack couldn't wait to get outside and do some yard work!

By chance Ella and Lila were matching one morning.
My bookend girls
More cousin's move to Utah! 
Lilly loved playing with Kylie.
Now if we can only get Mary, Sarah and Aaron to move their families here!
(Bizzy is planning on moving here in June!)
These girls love getting in the mail in hopes of getting an American Girl catalog.
They circle all the things they hope to get someday.
In their dreams
On afternoon driving around I noticed some of the tress are getting little buds on them.
Spring is here!
And just like that it's winter again...
This storm was crazy! I felt like I was racing out of a black hole!
I guess that's just spring in Utah.
It felt so great to get outside and breath the fresh air!
Well, I'm just about done nursing this lady.
She just wants regular food anway
Now that the kids are outside more Lila crawls over to the back door and bangs on it over and over until they come talk to her. She wishes she could go and play outside too.
She's getting so big! Before I know it she will be running around outside too

Mom's and Movies

After the kids school put on the Daddy- daughter dance all of the boys wanted to have a special day with their Moms.
 So this morning we went and watch "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" with all of the boys and Mom's from Jack's school.
Jack was so excited, he even wanted to take pictures just like Ryan and Ella had done.
I sure love my sweet boy!
It was a lot of fun to have time with just Jack.
It reminded me I need to do that more often.
As we left Jack wanted to pose with this poster.
I loved spending my day with just my boy.
Love you Jack!

Peter Pan Jr.

Ella loved being in her school play last year so much, of course she tried out for this years as well!
She got the roll of "Flint" one of the main pirates. She even had a couple of lines!
I had to include that on our way to the school we stopped to get a little snack.
I turn around to find Lilly finger painted her whole body with milkshake!!
I just about died. I tried using wet wipes to get it off.. no luck. I ran into the store and bought her a whole new outfit.. Talk about stressed out. Good thing Ella wasn't too late..
Don't you love the huge wound that Neinah painted on Jacks face?! Ha!
I wasn't a fan of Ella's make up the first night, so each night after that I did it myself.
The whole group of pirates!
It was so fun to have my Mom AND Jacob help out with the play.
Ella loved being able to spend every rehearsal with her Uncle and Grandma.
They both have so much experience in theater. My Mom has directed large community theaters for several years, I know her input and experience made such a difference in this years production. 
Jacob was so great with kids and helping them develop their characters.
After this whole experience Jacob decided that he wants to become an elementary school teacher!
He will be a wonderful teacher someday! 

Ella is second from the left ;)
Long white shirt, black vest and red sash
One of Ella's lines
"Peter Pan ahoy!"
"I want a Mother too"

Opening night Ella had a big cheering section of cousin's and Aunts
Ella did such a great job, I couldn't be more proud! 
Amazing Ella!

With every performance Ella got better and better!
I always knew she would be a wonderful actress ;)

On the final night of the show everyone gave flowers and cards to the directors and assistants.
Of course we got some flowers for Ella too.
Lisa, Tiffany and their kids came to see Ella's final performance!
After the show all of the kids got to go up and dance on the stage! 
Preston has some pretty amazing moves! So did Adi and Alivia!

I'm so grateful for my Mom and Jacob and all that they did is supporting Ella and her school. 
They might even help out again next year ;)
Thank you to everyone who came to see Ella!
Mrs. M! She is such a great director! It was such a fun show! I'm so glad Ella got to be in it!

So proud of you Ella!

St. Patricks Day

I really dropped the ball on this one.. I'm usually so great about holidays, but this time I just fell short.
I don't know if it's all the sleepless nights with a baby catching up with me or what...
The leprechaun that comes to our house had everything ready to go, but forgot to set it up the night before. So right before the kids were coming home from school he just kind of threw everything onto the counter ;)
In the morning the kids wondered why he hadn't left anything, so they were happily surprised that he had indeed come while they were in school.
Anytime there is candy, Lilly's happy!

Happy St. Patrick's day!
That night I made Ryan's favorite- corned beef and cabbage. I only make it once a year. 
Because it stinks.
And strawberry pie for dessert!
