As you can see,Kaleb wasn't to happy that I made him take a picture with a Birthday hat on, but I eventually got him to smile. You have to be a little cheesy at 16, right! I can't believe he is 16! I have been spoiled rotten having him as a son. He has always been an example to the rest of his family. He is my right hand man, I don't know what I would do without him!! I hope he always continues to be the wonderful young man that he is!! I love you Kaleb! I hope you have a wonderful 16th birthday. I am looking forward to you helping me run errands once we get your license. : )
It was Fathers and Sons, so me and livvy decided to party!!
After dinner out, we came home and put on these
Chocolate face masks. Boy, did they smell good!
Instead of eating each others masks, we decided on a blizzard. It was goooood. We finished the night watching a "chick"flick. We love the men in our home, but it's always fun to have a little girl time!!
After a wonderful Spring Break, we came home to celebrate Olivias 11th birthday. She woke up to find the ripstick she wanted(how she rides it, is beyond me). Unfortunately the weather was cold and windy so she didn't get to ride it very much, so to make up for it I crazily agreed to a party/sleepover. She ended up having a great time with cousins and friends dancing and eating Ice Cream sundaes.
Spring Break sure was a lot of Fun!! We stayed in the Marriot with Kyles Family and had a blast! We went to a Spring Training game, the Wildlife Animal Park and of course went swimming!! It was fun for us to spend time with family and get away for awhile. I
I just had to write and say Congrats to Jarom. He just finished his 7th grade basketball career Undefeated!! It sure was a fun year. They had a really good team that worked well with each other. He said he'll miss the games but not the practices! I won't really miss the practices either. Well, we have a few weeks break before the baseball season starts and then we'll have all the kids playing.
Here are a few pics of Jarom as a Snowflake Lobo Jr. High Baketball player. My camera doesn't take very good action shots, so I waited until he was standing still. I love those skinny little legs under those shorts!! He's going to kill me for writing that, but oh well.
Uncle Nik, bought a new dirt bike that is just the right size for the kids. He couldn't wait to come and show them and see if they'll "fit". To say they were excited is an understatement!!! To say mom is scared is another understatement !! I do trust Uncle Nik will be a good instructor though.
Our story begins 17 years ago when Kyle and I were married on August 14,1991. We lived the first 7 years of our marriage here in the state of Arizona where we welcomed Kaleb, now 15,Jarom,13 and Olivia,10. We then took a journey to Utah where we have spent the last 10 years,(2 in Orem and almost 8 in the wonderful St. George) We brought back with us our souveniers, twin boys joey and josh almost 8.Bringing our family to 7. I think our hearts will always be split between Arizona and Utah, but we definately know that home is with each other no matter where we are.
