Soccer Season 2016

Standard

This year we had both Megan and Jane in soccer. They are totally in it only for the fun of being part of a team and getting out and being active, but they have great attitudes and totally love it.

Megan’s team was green this year and was made up of several girls she had played with before and a coach we had worked with before. She had a great season and was so supportive of her teammates. She sure tries hard and works her hardest.

Jane’s team was black and Jane was one of only 2 girls. She had so much fun and always had a smile on her face. She LOVED being a part of a team. She was happy and positive and always moving. It was a great 1st season for her.

These girls couldn’t be more different but they sure love each other and are very supportive. Great job on a great season girls!

Easter 2016

Standard

Our Easter holiday started with a ward Easter activity at the park. There was a message about Easter and then an egg hunt. Adam took the three big kids and they had a great time.easter.jpg

While Adam and the big kids were gone, Charlotte and I had a little Easter photo shoot. This girl is so cute and perfect!

_mg_6361Easter morning the children woke up to our traditional jelly bean trail. As a child I remember getting lots of fun wonderful Easter surprises in my basket. I have carried on the same tradition with my children.

No jelly bean trail for Charlie, but she was pleased with her treasures as well.

Next we donned our most Easter-y Sunday best and headed out to church. Partaking of the sacrament, renewing our covenants, and speaking of the Savior and his infinite atonement is always the most wonderful and most important part of Easter.

After church we dyed Easter eggs and had a little Easter hunt of our own in our home. It was a wonderful holiday.

As always, we missed our little Jack. Because He lives, one day we will be together forever and ever.

Alec turns 3

Standard

There are not enough good things in the whole entire world that could be said about my sweet Alec. He is such a wonderful little boy. He is happy and gentle and sweet and loving. He has gone through a handful of difficult things in his short little life. My heart aches for his struggles and hardships. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for his every happiness. He holds my whole heart in his tiny little hands. Little boys do not come any better than this one.

 

We started Alec’s birthday with birthday donuts and gifts. Then there was a ward Easter activity (which I will include on the Easter post.) Adam also took Alec and Jane and Megan swimming at the rec center. That evening we had cake and ice cream and just spent the entire day celebrating as a family.

Alec had been asking about his birthday for months and had a truly wonderful day. Not only did Alec totally skip over the “terrible twos” but he is also the most terrific three year old ever! We love you Alec!

Fairy Tea Party 2016

Standard

We were able to attend the Fairy Tea Party at the Provo City Library again this year. The girls were so looking forward to it and had a great time.

Adam went early in the morning to stand in line for tickets. If you recall my post from our first Fairy Tea Party, it was a miracle we got tickets at all last year. We were ready this year and were able to get tickets without a problem. We bought a couple extra tickets in case my nieces wanted to come again. They weren’t able to come, so my neighbor and her daughter came along with us.

Lucky for me, the dresses the girls wore last year still fit, and they were excited to wear them again. Pretty Jane was especially excited.

Megan was torn between being too “grown up” for the fairy party and still wanting to go. She decided to go and had an okay time. She is growing up too fast.

The Fairy Tea is always such a fun activity to do with the girls. It’s nice to dress up and sneak away for a couple hours. I sure love my beautiful, beautiful girls.
