Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are!

The kids still love playing in their teepees. One day during reading time I couldn't find Brielle until I saw these little legs poking out. She, of course, was playing the iPad. Sneaky

Pregnancy Update - 35 1/2 Weeks

Wow we are getting close! I've been working on finishing the baby's room (or should I say "nook" of our bedroom) and finally started pulling out all the baby clothes from the shed. I'm still feeling great, although by the evening I'm pretty much done and have no energy left. I still contract All. The. Time...but since I've been contracting since 17 weeks I'm used to it. Can't believe it's only 3 1/2 weeks away!

Valentine's Day

I'm all about dressing my kids up on the holidays. I usually go a little extreme. This year, however, we didn't have anywhere to go with the kids so we just hung out at home in pjs all day. I didn't even do their hair...gotta love lazy days! Brayden was SUPER cute and made me breakfast in bed...cereal and toast. So thoughtful! The kids waited all day for their little valentine's from mom and dad. Brayden got a new ps3 game and the girls got a princess play-doh set. They all got little mailboxes with little trinkets inside as well. We are going to start writing little notes to each other so the mailboxes are perfect for that. Josh and I snuck out as soon as the babysitter got there and headed to the theater and saw Taken 3. We enjoyed it a lot. Texas Roadhouse had a 2 hr wait, so we ended up going to Dillards while we waited for our table at Olive Garden. They were super fast and SO good. We made it home after all the kids were in bed so we were able to relax for the rest of the evening! Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Boxes

I searched the internet with the kids for ideas for their Valentine's boxes looking for something they liked that I was willing to make. Brayden loved the crocodile, as did I since I could print out and trace the entire thing. His was easy and we put it all together in about an hour. Brooklyn's, on the other hand, took a little longer. It started out as a simple castle, but quickly got more complicated as I started. But Brooklyn was thrilled with how it turned out and all the girls in her class loved it!

Thanksgiving Point Museum

Natalie and I took the younger girls to the museum at Thanksgiving Point. It's fun to have annual passes bc we don't feel like we have to stay and see every part of the museum. The girls had a blast running around and playing wherever they wanted. We headed to Subway for lunch afterwards then home!

Valentine's Party

Our friends had our annual Valentine's Party. We had a great steak dinner at Jeff's office/house, a couple of fun games, and yummy chocolate and caramel fondue bar. It was fun to hang out with everyone and not worry about the kids!

Last Jr. Jazz Game...Again

Lol I think the last time I posted about Jr. Jazz I said it was Brayden's last game.  Oops. This was really his last game. Congrats bud on a great season!

Date With The Girls!

I surprised Brooklyn and Brynlee with a girl's night out! Our babysitter showed up and we headed out the door with 1 minute to spare to make the Trax train. We made it downtown and went to Litza's Pizza for dinner. Then we hopped back on Trax and headed to the Huntsman center for the gymnastics meet. The girls were in heaven! They loved watching all the events and we all had a great time. We left a few minutes early to catch Trax back to our car and then stopped at Wendy's for Frostys on the way home! Such a fun night!!!

Princess Day

Brynlee got to dress up as a Queen or Princess at school while they were learning about the letter Q. She loves to dress up and was thrilled when I got out my wedding tiara and let her wear it.

Pregnancy Update - 33 1/2 Weeks

This pregnancy continues to go too fast! Since it's my last I am trying to enjoy it as much as I can and I'm realizing how much I still need to get done before this baby comes! I'm feeling great, although I can tell I'm starting to get near the end!
