Easter Egg hunt at Grandma's

Saturday was not the day for Easter Egg hunts
First it was super windy
then the rain came
We went to the Payson City Egg Hunt (that was a joke)
Then over to Payson Market (another joke)
Then we went over to my Grandma's house
It was still raining
so we had to do it under the carport
There were lots of fun hiding places
In the gas compartment

In the rear windshield wipers of my sisters jeep

In the mailbox
(there were a lot in the bottom too!)

In the basket of my neice's bike

On the luggage rack of my brothers scooter

Even though the hiding places were cheesy
the kids had a lot of fun finding all the eggs

My cute baby sisters had fun watching and filming.

Happy Easter

We had a fun Easter
The kids got cute new church clothes
and new outfits
and TONS of candy!

Bailey is growing up way too fast looking so beautiful
Morgan was super excited to eat all the candy
Owen was so handsome
Reagan still is not a fan of my new camera
Morgan had a great idea to make funny faces

I guess all the pictures wore them out!

Bailey's Choir performance

Bailey had her spring choir performance.
It was really cute!
There was no real theme,
just fun songs
The Choir is much smaller now than it was in the fall.
Practice was held after school
because *some* kids were not being very respectful
when they *had* to be in choir

Bailey chose to do a solo this time
she was super nervous
but she did fantastic!
She has a wonderful voice
she chose to sing
"You are my Sunshine"

"One-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater"

Morgans School Performance

A few weeks ago Morgan had a school performance.
The entire first grade worked super hard
I was so impressed
every kid knew every word to every song!

At the very last minute of school
she was asked her if she would do a speaking part
Morgan was so excited
she practiced and practiced and practiced until it was time
She looked nervous
but she did it!

Plus she got to sit by two super cute boys!

For the winter we took down the trampoline
the kids have been having so much fun playing on the frame
When I got home yesterday Owen was so excited to show me his newest trick

Look ma, no hands!

Crazy hair day

It is spirit week at the girls school
Monday was crazy hair day
So Morgan said "I want my hair in a hundred piggys'
So we did as many as I could
I think I got about 15 piggys...
close enough

We love spirit week!

Reagan's stitches

Kids love running in the house.
No matter how many times I tell them not to they still do.
Well today Reagan was running.
She ran into the table, then she ran to me screaming and blood dripping down her face...
I tried to clean her up but the blood just kept pouring out...
So I took her to the doctor
He said that she needed stitches
he gave her verset to calm her down...boy did it calm her down
She no longer had use of her body
eyes rolled back
body limp
mouth smiliing at something unseen
I laughed a nervous laugh, it is so hard to see your baby like that
it only took two stitches
and 20 minutes for the verset to wear off enough for us to go home.

She hates her picture taken to I took advantage of her still being a little loopy to take some of her stitches.
She still couldn't walk at this point,
and her head would flop around a bit too.
I love her eyelashes!
She started getting annoyed from me taking pictures
while she was trying to remember how to eat a cracker...

She is doing much better tonight
the verset has worn off
she is ready for bed
I just hope that she makes it through the night!

Spring flowers

I am so ready for spring to be here!
It was so nice when we had a warm spell a few weeks back
my flowers started blooming
they still are but they are struggling
I love my crocus'

daffodils have never been my favorite
but it is funny when they are your own how beautiful they are!
Spring PLEASE come back!

Boys and thier stuff!

There is a saying.

One mans trash, is another mans treasure.

Everything that Owen sees is a treaure!
...And those *treasures* go either in his pocket,
or on his dresser.

An old battery, an old chain, some hunting card that Bruce got in the mail, and a single lincoln log

Cabela coins and a quarter

another view of the hunting card (I know your jealous)

Owen's hunting knife

(that has been taken away from him numerous times)

and a plastic animal (I think deer)

A transformer helicopter

(sorry I don't know which transformer it is)

A cap gun, a plastic spider and a screw

(argh, not my favorite!)
Spiderman legos
(which many of them are lost because he won't put them away!)

...and pups
He loves this dog with all his heart! He has had him since he was three months old and he cannot watch cartoons in the morning with out him!
