February Happenings

Marielle lost her first tooth in February.  The tooth fairy came and brought her a $2 bill.

We went up to Utah to visit our families over a long Valentine's day weekend.  We celebrated Adriana's 2nd birthday as well as Aunt Dani and Aunt JaNae's birthday with my family.  While there we announced the big news that baby #5 was on the way.  I made a little heart banner with each grandkids name on it and then one with the new babies arrival date on the end and gave it to  my mom and dad for Valentines Day.  Everyone was very excited and happy.  I on the other hand just felt sick and nauseous- but happy too.

We also celebrated Adriana's birthday as well as Aunt Kara's birthday with Clint's family.  However, my camera battery died and I didn't have my charger with me.  We also announced the arrival of baby #5 in the same fashion to Clint's family.  Once again everyone was excited and perhaps a little surprised.

On Adriana's actual birthday we went out to Raising Cane's and then opened presents.

January Happenings

After the fun and excitement of Christmas are over, January always seems like such a letdown.  However, my birthday falls in the beginning of the month which helps ease the after-the-holidays-are-over blues.
Clint made me panzarotti (fried calzones) for dinner and bought a DQ cake- my fav!

We started the remodel of our master bathroom.  I will post pictures of the completed bathroom soon. I love, love how it turned out.

Adriana discovered the amazingness of the compact disc walkman.

Easton had his first Pinewood Derby and did awesome!  He took first place.

Easton and Clint put a lot of time into Easton's car and it paid off.  It was fun to watch all the boys race their cars.  At the stake race Easton placed 9th place overall.  However,  there was a little mix up while doing the race.  There was a news crew there which was all very exciting and as a result some of the cars were not entered into the computer system.  After the error was realized they added the missing cars but it threw off the race.  Each car was to race 4 times in each different lane.  But because of the mix up Easton only ended up racing 3 times and 2 of those times were in the first lane which was always the slowest lane for him.  Oh well.  He had fun and did great anyway.

Christmas 2014

I'm trying to get caught up on my blogging.  Hence the pictures from many months ago.

For Christmas my sister Danielle and her family came down and stayed with us. We went to Silverton on Christmas Eve in hopes of seeing the mermaids but they were not there so we explored the Bass Pro Shop.

When we arrived home we ate dinner and played Christmas pictionary. 

The kids were able to open one present which turns into opening multiple presents.

Santa visited and left lots of treasures for the kids.

Around four in the morning I awoke to some rustling about out in the family room.  I walked out to find Ana pushing her new stroller around full of cousin Daphne's Christmas presents.

Easton riding his spinning shark.

After a long day of opening presents everyone was tired.
