Glad this week is over!

The Early Birthday Party
We had an early birthday party for Banx on Monday because some family was going to be gone and I didn't want to take up anyone's Friday night, so we had grandparents over and some family over to help us celebrate Banxton. Thank you all for coming and being such a special part of Banxton's life.

the big FOUR! my boy is getting so big!!!!!

He has been wanting the Black Spider-man ever since Christmas. He got one for Christmas ( a red one) and it broke a month or two later and I wouldn't buy him another one, I told him to wait till his birthday, and he did patiently.

Banxton's Birthday
Banxton's Birthday was on Friday ( April 2) We decided to take him and do something fun, so we took him to Kangaroo Zoo with his pal Abe. They all had a ball, then afterward we went and got ice cream. Not such a big deal, but I think he had fun anyway.

Don't ask me where he gets that attitude on his face.Big Slide
Gracie even warmed up to it and loved it, she kept wanting us to take her up on the big slides, eventually billy taught her how to climb the steep steps.

Woods Cross City had an Easter Egg hunt for the kids and some fun little things to do and meet the Easter Bunny, so we headed over there to give the kids something to experience.

Gracie was a little nervous to see the Easter Bunny so, I held her and I got to be in the picture. Yeah!

Don't get me wrong this week was so much fun and the kids loved looking for their Easter Baskets on Sunday. and we all had a great time. It was just a lot to think about all in a weeks time and make sure I had everything for the different events. But It all worked out and everything went well.

We enjoyed this Conference weekend as well and are so grateful for the Apostles and Prophets that we have on this earth to lead and guide us today. I am so grateful for the gospel in my life and the knowledge that I have. I hope that I can follow the council that was given and raise my kids with the tools and love they need to be righteous children.

I hope you all enjoyed this Easter Weekend.

A weekend in St. George

This past weekend, we went down to St. George with my dad and all my brothers and sisters and the day we got there it was 77 degrees, Yes you read that right, 77 degrees and it was SO nice. It was pretty warm the rest of the week, Friday was a little cool, like 64 but it beats the weather we've been having. It was your usual trip to St. George: shopping, eating, hikes, swimming, golfing, it's just nice to get out of the normal everyday routine.
Playing in the fountains over by Old Navy. The water was freezing, but what little kid doesn't love to get wet? no matter how cold the water is, it's always a game.

Swimming in the pool, the weather was perfect!!!
my little fish
Sidewalk chalk on the condo's patio, oh well :)
They had a ball sitting in the warm weather hanging out in their swimsuits.
And they loved spending time with their cousin, Talmage. They don't get to see him very much and I am sure Talmage is just fine with that, consider how they were all over him.
It was nice to have Jocelyn down for the weekend and spend some time with her and Talmage and enjoy the warm weather. Till next time Joc.

What its the middle of March?

I officially consider myself the worst blogger ever! I guess nothing to exciting mentioning...well I guess I take that back, I'm sure you can tell that there's a baby ticker counting down. Yes we are pregnant and are having a baby in the middle of August. We're pretty excited, Banxton talks to my stomach (the baby) all the time. I am doing good just extremely tired, two kids might contribute to that though. We have decided not to find out the sex of this baby and have a big surprise in August, making it a little more intense I guess you could say. It should be fun!
We haven't been up to much with it being winter and all playing with friends, cleaning the house, watching t.v./movies. pretty boring, we can't wait for spring and summer! We go outside and go for walks or let Banx ride his bike on the nice day's and he is happy for that. Banxton has been in preschool and LOVES it, he can't wait each week to go, good thing it's three times a week. Gracie is just a cute little turd! she is into everything and loves to follow her big brother around and copy him as long as I am within eye sight or she has a break down. I have a hard time remember what it like going to the bathroom or showering without crying or banging on my door. She sure is a fun little turd though. Love that girl, she sure makes us smile.

What else is there to do on rainy days?

Trying out his spider-man umbrella, I can't tell you how long he's been waiting to use that, and grace is breaking in her rain coat!

Just being silly!

Another New Year!

Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas! Our family had a great holiday, other than the black eye Banxton got on Christmas eve playing with some cousin's it was splendid. We were all better from our sicknesses that we had and were able to be around everyone. For Christmas we visited family and had a small christmas at home with our kids and then headed down to Fairview with billy's family to spend the New Year. It was fun this year because we were able to have Jocelyn and Cody here from Wisconsin and they brought there brand new baby Talmage, Yeah we have cousins on my side of the family now. Pictures soon to come.
Well hopefully this New Year I can be better at updating my blog, I know I enjoy looking at all of you guys and seeing how your family it doing so I can only assume it's the same for you.
