Fun Run!!

Every year Andrews school has a fun run. The kids run the "track" for half an hour and people donate money. It's awesome! I love going and watching them race as fast as they can, then get do tired they can barely move:)


We went to the firestation with Benjamin's preschool group this week. He loves being able to climb inside the truck and especially spray water from the hose!
Here we have Ben, Ty, Christian, Scotty, Olivia, and Emma along with siblings.
It's pure joy being able to spray water from the hose!!

Will he???

Last week, march 15, I tried to get Daniel to sit up. He did at Brea's house, I think it was the blanket;) I can't get him to do it at home. He's too busy wanting to get to toys!

Piano recital

Andrew had another piano recital on Sunday. This time he played minuet in g. I'm so proud of all he's accomplished! You did a great job Andrew!!


I put Daniel in Sierra's room to play while I cleaned the boys' room. I came back a few seconds later to find him hiding under Sierras crib.

Fun at the park

The weather has been so nice that we have spent almost every day at the park for almost 2 months now. This was Daniels first time in the swing and he LOVED it!! Warning...picture overload!!!

Is it really time?!?!

I had been ADAMENT that Sierra was NOT going to move to a big bed for a LONG time. Both boys were out just after they turned 2 because we moved and didn't have access to their cribs right away. Andrew continued to nap if I layer down with him or made a deal with him. Ben stopped napping all together. With Ben still home and Sierra and Daniel being so close in age, I knew I was going to need the break and was worried I wouldn't get it if Sierra was out of a crib. Well, she started showing signs of being able to handle it, we could make deals with her. So, when someone gave us a toddler bed we figured we'd give it a try. The first night she ended up back in her crib because she wouldn't stay in her bed. She's stayed ever since actually. Yesterday she didn't take a nap but played on her bed for almost 2 hours. And today just as I was thinking she wasn't going to nap again (she had been playing for over an hour in her room) I peeked in and found her asleep, half on half off. I guess she'll fall asleep if she's tired enough! We'll see how the rest of the week goes.

Enjoying Andrew playing basketball

The kids love going to Andrews practices and games. I don't know why, they get antsy after the first 3 minutes:)

Daniel is JUST SO HAPPY!! He loves the swing and basketball. He really loves to watch the older kids run around the backyard. What an amazing little boy we have been blessed with!

On the way home from church I was telling Ben that Andrew had gone home sick because he needed to lay down. The following then took place.
Ben "why didn't he lay on a bed at the church?"
Mommy "because there are no beds at church."
Ben "why?"
Then before I could answer....
Ben "then where does Jesus sleep since he lives there?

I'm Sleeping:)

When I caught Sierra with her binkie in her mouth while she was playing....
Me- "Sierra, can I have your binkie please?
Her response- "I'm sleeping" she then promptly climbed on to the couch and shut her eyes:) too cute!!!

Sierra's Special Day!

2 years ago, March 1, I stepped out our front door on my way to a DR checkup and thought...."what a beautiful day to have a baby!" I was fortunate enough to be right! Of course, she was given a little encouragement, and boy am i glad she was! Our little girl, who we thought would be smaller, was actually 9 1/2 lbs!!
She stole our hearts from the start. She has all the boys wrapped around her little finger. They just can't get enough of her.
She is sweet yet can hold her own against the boys.
Her favorite color is PINK
Her favorite shows are Bubble Guppies, Team Umizoomi, and Little Einsteins
She loves to wear dresses and dance like a Princess
She thinks she's a princess and loves everything about them. No favorite one yet though.
She's a great big sister to Daniel and LOVES him.
Her favorite toys are her dolls and her kitchen, she plays with them ALL the time.
As girlie as she is, she loves to play cars with Ben, but she better get the pink or purple one:)
Her favorite food is spaghetti and hot dogs...but, not together.
Her friends right now are Mackensie Peterson, Ethan Miller, Bret Butler and Austin Bankhead
She's attached to her daddy, but as far as men go...that's about it, she's still pretty hesitant of the young men when they come over;)
Sierra, you crack us up! We love you!! What a joy you are to our family:)
