Spring Days

This week was extra busy and more excitement in the family then we like to see but what can you do. We got 2 1/2 snow days last week and that was super exciting. We ended up with 17 inches of snow. Great for moisture but what happened to SPRING??

Daddy has been super busy as one of the 3 networking engineers left and so they are down to 2 and trying to absorb the responsibilities. It has meant a lot of overtime but Daddy doesn't mind cause he is dreaming of camera lenses and backpacking ultra lite sleeping bags. 

 Last week mommy got stuck down in Fort Collins because of our snow storms and had to sleep in a hotel. Sleeping in a double king bed hotel room by yourself is the definition of loneliness. But she got home the next day after work. She is absolutely in love with L&D nursing and embracing the challenges.

Lukas has been on a humor kick that is driving us all...well he takes after his father. He has been taking one to many notes from Daddy and wrote this school assignment. You had to write sentences using spelling words. The teacher has told us repeatedly that Lukas has the hardest time writing but he sure didn't this week.

If you can't read it it says...
1.Because I like that instead of that. 
2. Their are different freks (freaks) in the world.
3. I am between tow (two) freeks for a resan (reason).
4. All the people in the world are freks.
5.These people are freks said dad.
6. I should call the people freks.

Well the teacher was not in the least impressed and neither was his mother but what can I do?? Anyway we had a good talk and Dad... well he laughed through it and gave Lukas a high five. All I can say is I tried...

MaKynzee is being MaKynzee. Right now all she talks about is when she grows up she wants to be a princess, musketeer, dancer. Anyway we love her for all her cute quirks. She is always decked out in a skirt and leggings. If she doesn't have a skirt or leggings she says she can't get dressed. (I make her where leggings cause its cold and she ran holes in all the tights she wore to school THAT day.) Anyway she is really into capes right now and drives her dad bonkers. We love her sweet spirit. She is very forgetful and causes much drama but we have hoped and prayed she will grow out of it. 

Bowen keeps us all laughing. He has started to show a little more attitude and terrible twos but we knew it couldn't be avoided and he has this little stubborn anger that comes out too. He loves to just play and really doesn't need to be entertained. He loves cars more than anything and loves to go to the babysitters and play with Karlee and story time at the library with mom. 

Seriously how can you have a bad week when you have this to be with or come home to!
We love you all!

Catching up April Days

Since Mommy has gone back to work MaKynzee has been getting in touch with her "Dr" skills!

How far are you going to push that thing Dr M! She loves getting all my stuff out of my nursing school bag.

We decided to go fly our Easter kites while Dad was at priesthood session. I had no idea/ didn't remember that you actually have to learn HOW to fly a kite. After 45 minutes and some hair loss we finally got the hang of it!


I don't know how long it took to get this picture of them BOTH flying in the air but it was super fun!

And this was Bowen....watching and playing without a care in the world! Love that face!

Mommy was scarily disappointed that she was going to be working on class picture day! YIKES!!! Daddy and hair do NOT go in the same sentence so I did what my mom always did....CURLERS!
I think it turned out pretty cute but Daddy for got to take pictures on Mommy's camera!!

The cute little curler BOB!

We were in SLC for Easter so I was unable to do our traditional Easter pictures so I grabbed a few last weekend in their Easter outfits!
 As you can tell by Makynzee's expressions it was windy and slightly cold...A+ for effort on all their behalves  Bowen was in the funniest mood so it was AWESOME to see his smiles!

This is Bowen running to the camera saying "I SEE! I SEE!" He wanted to check out the pictures right in the middle of me taking one! Grrrrr but cute pic eh?

I wanted an added touch of spring so I got the cute little wreath...little did I know SNOW CRAZED week was ahead!

Our kiddos are just the most important thing to us...they look like they are in pain but they were just laughing way too much!
We love Easter because of what it reminds us...OUR SAVIOR LIVES! We have tried and I think rather successfully been able to teach the kids how important it is and that the Easter bunny is NOT the reason. Every year we get the kids a new book that talks about Christ. This year it was The Easter Walk by Debrah Pace Rowley. It was amazing and we, well I felt the spirit as I read the words to the children that this is right! It is divine truth! He LIVES! He LOVES! He is THERE! We believe with all our hearts that the Savior lives and that because of Him our beautiful little family gets to be an eternal one!
