There were a couple of weeks where Olivia wasn't being very good in church and Matt had to take her out in the hall.

Olivia asks almost every week at Sunday dinner to paint. We have many painted bird houses around our house, she just loves painting.

Olivia was reclined with her feet up watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

I was amazed at Olivia's coordination and how steady she was stacking these Jenga blocks. Even I can barely stack them 4 high and 5 is almost impossible but she loved trying to see how tall she could make her "tower".

We were getting an appraisal done on our house and since the whole house was clean at the same time (a rarity these days) I figured I should take pictures! You can also see the finished trim on the wall in the living room that was added when Matt's parents were here. I had been wanting to do something like that for years but wasn't sure if I would like it and couldn't quite get myself to commit to it but I love it. It's great for a quick place to put backpacks and jackets.

As soon as the appraiser left Olivia wanted her stool pulled back out from under her bed and put back where it belonged. She didn't like that I had moved stuff around in her room.
My uncle and his wife were sealed in the Draper temple one evening and although it was cold and windy we loved the view.

You can even see a planet to the left of the temple in this picture.
We had to check out the Lego exhibit at the mall. We took Kaleb and Ashton's friends with us and had fun looking at all of the different American monuments and structures. I think the boys are practicing the pledge of allegiance here, not sure. They were all being silly during any pictures I took.

Olivia wasn't as thrilled and started throwing a fit (she was really tired) so we sat down for a minute while the boys looked around in the Lego store.
When Olivia was really little, under a year old, Matt would always paint her toe nails especially for church. As she got older she hated her feet being touched. We couldn't trim her toe nails or anything so we gave up on painting her toes for almost a year unless she was asleep and we would try to sneak some paint on them. This Sunday she happened to see me painting my toe nails (which doesn't happen very often) and she really wanted me to paint her nails so we had to document it because it was so surprising to us. Now she's addicted to having her nails painted and loves it. Her nails are always painted and she loves drying them in her little nail dryer.

Sundays are hard with 1 o'clock church so she had some snuggle time with dad after church.
There are only a couple of daffodil and tulip bulbs in front of my office at work and Olivia came in one day and had picked most of them to give to me. Sweet but she thinks she can pick flowers anywhere!

This evening we had fun playing at Mountview Park. The kids love all the different playgrounds and activities at this park and it keeps them busy for a long time. Ashton always has to ham it up when I take his picture.

Olivia loves to walk (or in this case run) to and from church with her brothers.
March 22, 2015
She loves stopping to look at the pretty flowers and tries to pick them if I'm not watching.
Even though it was a rainy day I had to go out and take some pictures of the blossoms on our trees.

This girl is a daredevil and not scared of anything. That's one way to get to the computer screen.
March 23, 2015
A couple days later I took more pictures of the blossoms with the blue sky and sun out. I love spring time.
March 25, 2015
The boys are so good about playing with Olivia and she just loves to be outside. She loves playing ring-around-the-rosie with them.
March 28, 2015
Since Easter was on conference weekend Olivia wore her Easter dress the week before. She loved all the layers on the bottom and it's her favorite dress to twirl in.
March 29, 2015
I had to sneak a picture in with Olivia. (Random side note more for myself but it's weird to see things in some of these pictures that were taken when our house was burglarized [in June] such as the necklace I'm wearing. It's weird to think they're just gone forever, not that it's a big deal it's just stuff but it still is weird to see pictures of some of the stuff.)
Olivia had set up these toys and said they were kissing. She's such a girly-girl!
