You want a what??

Charlie came home from PRESCHOOL yesterday and told me all about show and tell...One of the girls brought her IPOD to school to show all the kids. Charlie was amazed and now thinks she should get one! Thanks to the parent who bought their 4 year old an Ipod and then let her bring it to school-its really working for me. I told Charlie she can buy one with her own money, which since she gets $2-3 a week as an allowance I'm really hoping that she completely forgets about the whole idea by the time she saves enough (which she tends to be a little bit of a spender so I'm not even worried).

Happy Birthday!!!

In true fashion this year-better late than never but happy birthday! Brit and Phil share the same birthday (yes, we planned it that way...one of the perks of scheduled c-sections!). Brit turned 3 and is one vibrant little personality. She has a lot of spunk and is very very sweet but mostly just catch-you-off-guard hilarious. The best part is that she doesn't even try to be funny but just is. She definitely adds a lot to our lives!

As for Phil...he's just older and better with each year! I couldn't ask for a better husband. He is also quite amusing but he REALLY doesn't mean to be. It just happens.

We love you both so much!
(Brit's blue face is due to sidewalk chalk that she unintentionally got ALL OVER.)

Happy Easter!!!

We got to do some fun things Easter weekend but I'll post about that later (dinner's cookin'!).

Blessing Day

After two attempts we finally did it! We blessed Tate last Sunday. (The first attempt she ended up getting RSV three days before.) I don't bear my testimony really ever because it ALWAYS turns into the ugly cry complete with sobbing and no one understands what it is I am saying between all of my blubbering. BUT I love these four people so much and am so glad they are a part of my life. I feel so blessed to have been entrusted with my three sweet girls who I love so much for all so many different reasons. They each are definitely their own person and I am so grateful for it! And words can't say how much I love and appreciate my husband. I am grateful that through the gospel we can be an eternal family!!!! (This post is not intended to make our lives look perfect just once in a great while you get a glimpse of heaven!)

Twilight, Edward & PHIL

In an attempt to get ourselves bikini ready (not that either Phil or I would ever wear such atrocities...just atrocities on us-can you picture Phil?) Phil and I made a "deal". If he went out to eat for lunch during the week and didn't get something healthy he would have to read the first book of the Twilight series. Three days later I WON!!! So he renegotiated that if he swore more than three times in the next week he would have to read the first TWO books. Yes, I won, only by one or two words but bring on Edward! I have to say that I didn't make this deal because I absolutely loved the books, because as a freak of nature I really didn't but it's all about the most amount of pain and suffering I can inflict. Phil's cousin Russ is so happy about the situation that he has found many a website of paraphernalia for Phil to have to carry around with him. Its been real fun.
