April 2014

On April Fool's day the boys went about their day and never said anything so I didn't think they knew what day it was. After work we arrived home and I hear Ashton yell from the bathroom, "What is all over the toilet seat?" I went in to see him covered in white toothpaste. I then found Kaleb laughing about what he was hearing. I asked him when he did it and he said in the morning. Awhile later I found the other toilet with the same thing but it was blue toothpaste so it was easy to spot. The bad part is that even after cleaning it off it bleached the toilet seat as you can see below. So the boys know not to do that ever.

Kaleb wasn't done there, about an hour after he went to bed he went upstairs without us knowing and had put Ashton's hand in a bowl of warm water hoping he would wet the bed. Luckily the bowl hadn't spilled by the time we went to bed and checked on the kids. The next morning while I was in the shower (not April Fool's day anymore) I had a cup of cold water dumped on me. I told him he was done with the April Fool's pranks after that!

Olivia loves sliding down her slide in the basement.

This is a bad picture (like most from my phone) but Olivia is always finding something with a handle to carry around like a purse and put things in. She's all girl and loves anything girly.

One evening Matt took the kids over to Wheeler Farm to play on the playground. Olivia loves being outside.

I finally went in for a haircut (it had only been about 18 months) and had about a foot cut off and more layers put in. It was nice to get all the dry ends cut off. This is a month after it was cut when I realized I still didn't have any pictures of my haircut. I hate taking pictures of myself.

I can't tell you how many pictures I have of Olivia in the swing. She just wants to be outside whenever she can and loves swinging. At this point she starting climbing up the ladder to go down the slide and starting to show more interest in the trampoline but would only jump if you were holding her hands.

Another season of soccer started and I coached Ashton's team. Such a great group of kids, they all knew eachother and had so much fun playing together.

Matt and Olivia both woke up one day with some sort of eye infection. Olivia also during April had the rest of her teeth come in and a cold so April was a long month where she just wasn't her usual happy self all the time. Made me grateful for how easy going she usually is. But we made it through the month and she's back to her happy self.

This evening Matt kept going in and out of the house and she loved waiting for him and they made a game out of it. You'll also see she has quite the set of lungs when she does her high pitch scream.

Easter morning Olivia didn't care about finding eggs, she just wanted a sucker. And since she wasn't feeling the best we let her have it. It wasn't until after the boys found all of the eggs and were opening them that she ventured off the couch. As soon as she realized they had candy in them she wanted in on the action.

At Sunday dinner my aunt with help from the sister missionaries hid 300+ eggs. It ended up that my 3 kids were the only ones there so they each found a couple buckets full of eggs. Olivia wasn't going to miss out and started filling up a bucket before dinner while we were outside waiting to eat. She would shake each egg as she picked it up to make sure there was something inside and occasionally they would pop open and spill on the ground. She had a blast as did the boys. We still have bags full of candy from Easter that we haven't eaten almost 2 months later.

I thought the clouds looked really cool right after raining when the sun came out. Ask Matt, I'm always in awe at the sky, especially sunsets and I'm always pointing out how beautiful they are.

Here's a picture of our almost finished bathroom. We still need to have the company come and do the surround like we did upstairs and install baseboards but that's about it. Kaleb's loved having a bathroom downstairs by his room and I've just loved having 3 toilets in general. It seems everyone always has to go at the same time!

Horrible picture but I was trying on clothes and Olivia was with me and decided to walk around in my shoes. First time she had done this.

April 26, 2014

Matt was taking pictures of Olivia out in the hall at church. She does well in nursery even though she still will cry right when I drop her off but as soon as she can't see me anymore she'll stop.

Olivia loves sitting in her doll stroller at work. We go on so many walks at home in her stroller that I think she's hoping to go outside on a walk.

On April 30th 6 weeks early my nephew Christian Daniel was born at just 4lbs 5 oz. My sister-in-law was induced with pre-eclampsia and ended up having to have a c-section. You always forget how small a newborn is but I couldn't believe how tiny he was being this small. Ashton was 2lbs bigger and was still tiny, pictures don't show how small he was. Even being so early he never was on oxygen or had any real issues other than needing to gain weight and learn to eat on his own. He stayed in the NICU for just over 3 weeks and he is healthy and growing and weighs about 6lbs at almost 6 weeks old.

Getting a new nephew was a great way to end the month!
