Easter 2013

Our kids were excited for the Easter bunny to come. They were up early to find their Easter basket and see what was in them. The Easter bunny brought lots of fun outdoor toys this year and of course he brought plenty of candy and chocolate. Our girls picked me out a new tie for Easter and were excited to give it to me. Christy and the girls got new Easter dresses and Carter got a new tie. We were all stylin' today for Church. It was a nice day outside and we took some pictures in front of our house and Bryce and Amanda's house after we got home from Church. We are so grateful for our savior Jesus Christ and his atonement and that chance we have to celebrate Easter every year and to think about him on this special day.

Calee's field trip to Union Station

Calee had a pre-school field trip to the Union Station in downtown Ogden today. I was able to break away from work for a minute and meet them down there. They have a fun train museum that the kids love. We also got to go see the cars in the car museum. It was a fun morning.

Happy St. Patricks Day 2013

Our Cute kids all dressed in green and ready for Church
We had a naughty leprechaun visit our house during the night. He made a mess in our house and left little green footprints, but he left us some yummy green sugar cookies. Calee thought it was great!

We surprised the kids and bought them Toads Season Passes tonight. Unlimited mini golf, lazer tag, go-karts, batting cages, and arcades for a full year. They couldn't be happier! Saturday night while Christy and I went out on a dinner date, Kyle and Emily took the kids to Toads all night. They had a blast!

The first thing Calee bought with her arcade tickets was this awesome pair of giant sunglasses!

Literacy Night - 2013

Tonight was Majestic Elementary Literacy night at the Tree House Museum in Downtown Ogden. It is one of our kids' favorite places to go. It gets a little crowded and Chaotic when the whole elementary school is their, but it is still a lot of fun. Our kids love being with all of their friends. Tonight our kids each one a book and they also got to hold brand new baby chicks. Carter's 5th grade class sang a bunch of songs for everyone. We went with our friends Steve and Stephanie and their two girls and had a blast. Carter spent the whole time with his group of friends from school goofing off and chasing all the fifth grade girls. It was a fun night!

Our new Washer/Dryer Pedastal

This year we used some tax money and bought us a new Front Loader Steam Dryer. We also found a cool Pedastal idea on Pinterest that we decided we wanted to try. We bought all the wood and hardware at Lowes for about 1 hundered dollars. We spent many nights last week building it and painting it up in my parents garage. We are really happy with how it turned out. It is raises them up to where we want them and it looks really nice. We also love having the three laundry baskets underneath that we can easily slide in an out.

Last Weber State game of the season!

Carter and I got to go to Weber State's last basketball game of the season. Kyle has a friend that work security at the games and was able to get us down on the floor before the game. It was fun to be down on the floor and to see the players in person. Carter thought it was awesome! It was a neat experience to get to see them and watch them warmup. We also got to be there to watch our friend Kyley Slater propose to his girlfriend Jessica. It was on the jumbotron and everyone cheered for them. It was awesome. I'm glad we got to be there to see it. We are happy for them. It was a fun night, and Weber State won their game!

Disney on Ice - Dare To Dream

We surprised the kids and took them to Disney on Ice. We went with our friends, the Petersons, and their two girls Bryley and Emma. We rode the frontrunner down to Salt Lake, ate dinner at City Creek, and then went shopping at the Disney Store. We took our kids aside while we were in the Disney Store and told them that we had a surprise for them and announced that we were going to Disney on Ice. They were so excited. The girls were all jumping up and down in excitement. It was a fun night.
