Easter 2012

 We were happy to be invited to the annual Easter Egg hunt with some families in our ward. The kids had a blast and it requires minimal work on all us parents. We will have to take this cute tradition with us when we move.

"Lolly Pop Lane"

"Juice box Junction"

"Peanut Butter Patch"

Easter Morning

Claire loved her Dora socks

Landon and Brooklyn got marshmallow guns

The kids looking for the eggs the Easter Bunny hid

Happy Easter

Rain = worms

With the rain comes the WORMS!
 What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails and puppy-dogs' tails,
And that's what little boys are made of.

Hellen Keller

At Brooklyn's school all of the second graders in the school put on a wax museum. All the kids research and present a speech and then perform it in front of the whole school and community. Brooklyn chose Hellen Keller and she did an excellent job. She started saying her speech with an Alabama accent, and it was so good we didn't have the heart to tell her that Helen Keller didn't have an accent. For your viewing pleasure may we present, our Helen Keller:

Surprise it's Grandma!

On March 6th while I was downstairs teaching dance Christian got home late... nothing new; and told me to "go check on Landon" upstairs. I told him NO, that I was in the middle of teaching dance, HELLO. Well, with a weird look in his eye he told me to just go upstairs so I did and when I turned the corner to go upstairs there was my Mom standing right there with open arms!!! Of course I broke down and cried and said "My Heavenly Father really does Love me." I had been praying to figure out how I was going to get this Baptism dress sewn and look like a dress before Brooklyn's baptism day, and there was my angel here to help me.

Well we did a whole lot of playing and we had to cram the last few nights she was here to get the dress done but we did, and it looks amazing! BUT sorry you can't see it until Brooklyn's announcements are sent out. HAHA

Also while my Mom was here Darrin, Nikki and baby Ella came over for a quick visit while they were in town. What a treat to see that sweet baby. Brooklyn, Landon and Claire were going "gaga" over her and didn't want her to leave.

Thanks Mom for coming out to visit, your talents bless all those around you!

Bella's Back

For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of owning "Bella, Bella Dancerella" YOU ARE SO LUCKY. Brooklyn got this wonderful video when she was little and now Claire has discovered it's beautiful dancing entertainment. The songs are extremely catchy, you will find everyone in our family, even Dad and Landon singing the awesome songs on this DVD.

My little dancer Claire looks adorable in her tutu.

Enjoy a video of our little dancerella!!!
