April 2015


 I tried the sock curls again that I mentioned from this blog but this time used 5 socks. Here's Olivia before bed.

She was spraying Ashton with the spray bottle.
 


 
And here's the next morning. She wouldn't hold still long enough for a good picture and I tried many times but as you can see it worked better than the last time. I'm sure I'll use this technique even more when we have 9am church again!

Easter weekend we spent up at the cabin. We love being up there and the kids always get along and have so much fun together exploring. The full moon lit up the sky and was shining so bright on the snow that was left on the north facing mountain. We had a yummy breakfast on Saturday and went on a walk exploring around the area. We then drove over to the lake which was still frozen. It wasn't that cold outside so I was surprised it was still frozen other than the edges. We had fun throwing large rocks out onto the ice trying to break it but they just sat on top of the lake. We also picked up a couple small pine trees to plant around our cabin and planted those on Saturday. It was a fun weekend!

That Sunday, Easter morning, we stopped at my parents house where the Easter Bunny had filled our baskets and hid eggs in the backyard for the kids. Olivia loved finding the eggs. We had a yummy brunch and listened to conference at my parents house.

It's not windy very often but it was really windy at our house so we took some kites to my aunt and uncles house where we have Sunday dinner. We were able to get the kites up for about 10 minutes and then the wind died down. It wasn't as windy as it had been at our house but the kids still enjoyed it.

My aunt always has hundreds of eggs to find and the kids come away with more candy than Halloween!


My mom had bought some marshmallows and peeps for a craft and the boys started a marshmallow war making shooters out of partially inflated gallon ziploc bags. It was a good 30 minutes of marshmallows flying all over the yard and we're still finding them in her backyard.


Olivia was watching a movie with the boys before bed and fell asleep with a flower and vase.

I didn't think to take a picture until it was over but Murray Parks and Rec. had a soccer camp the Saturday before games started. It was helpful for me with coaching because it gave me some new drills to use in practice. After they had a raffle with prizes and Kaleb won a small football helmet in a case signed by Lou Holtz and yes, I had to Google who that was.

We started teasing Olivia on Sunday mornings that she had to get ready for the "Nursery Ball" because she always wants her hair done, nails painted, jewelry on, etc. We don't have church until 1pm but she is trying to get ready first thing in the morning. Matt's always painting her nails for her.

She loves to be outside any chance she can get.

She wanted to help daddy water the lawn.


Olivia and Matt walked to the park by my aunts house to play after dinner.

And my dad was able to pull out Ashton's 2nd tooth that was being really stubborn. His teeth are so tight and even his baby teeth were crooked because there wasn't enough room so I know he'll need braces one day.

Kaleb did a report on Milton Hershey for school and did a great job. They worked on their reports and presentations during class and he was able to finish everything during class time and never had to bring it home. He even came up with questions to ask after and the kids could get a Hershey kiss if they answered it correctly. I loved reading his report, he's a good writer and I'm sure it's from all the books he reads.

My cousin, Colton Satterfield, won the BMX Big Air Gold in the X-Games last year (and just won the Gold again being the first person to ever land the trick he did on the Mega Ramp) and held a Ramp Riot show in his hometown of Pocatello, Idaho that we were able to go see. I wasn't sure how Olivia would do driving up there and sitting through the show so she stayed home with Matt. The boys loved it, especially Kaleb.


It was hard taking pictures that weren't blurry but that's Colton in the white shirt.


The tricks they can do are amazing. It was fun to watch and there were about 20 pro guys there riding.


They signed autographs after and Kaleb had them sign his poster. It was a fun night and I'm glad we were able to go.


Just another picture of my bag lady. She always has some sort of purse or bag full of random things with her.

Spring soccer was fun and Ashton did really well. Usually him and one other kid were the ones scoring the goals. He plays more defensively though than offensively. He would rather make sure the other team doesn't score than score himself.

I had to coach Kaleb's team this season and so I guess this is how Ashton and my family kept themselves entertained during one of his games.



Most of the time Olivia falls asleep on the way to Sunday dinner but even Ashton can't always make it without falling asleep too. Kaleb just reads books, who needs sleep! Even at night he sneaks books to read and a light so he can keep reading late into the night.



Olivia came in holding her alien and said, "look a headband". She had put a perler bead on his antenna as a headband. Always accessorizing!

I love the spring time when all of our flowers are blooming. It's so pretty and our hens and chicks have been multiplying like crazy and filling in the gaps in the rocks.
