Happy Birthday to our Aunts (& Sisters). . .

*Sorry the video is sideways again!

Spring has Sprung. . .

Evelyn was excited to go for a walk in the rain, especially with her purple umbrella.

Love those shades!

We couldn't resist playing outside today, even with all the mud!

It's mud season in Vermont!
Kent was excited to finally be able to swing all be himself!
Evelyn playing with her baby dolls--Oliver also is in love with her baby dolls and loves repeating "baby, baby, baby." We will see how he does when the real baby comes!

Do As I'm Doing--Follow, Follow Me. . .

Oliver is in the cute stage of trying to do what everyone else is doing. He has been imitating reading, bowing his head during prayers, boxing his Dad with the boxing gloves, talking on the phone, and joining in pillow fights!

Dabble Day! We were able to enjoy getting really messy somewhere other than the house (I loved it)! The activities were playdoh, cookie decorating, facepainting, melted crayon creations, puppets, painting canvas bags, dancing, gym activities, glitter art, bubble play, collages, sand and water tables, and seed planting. It was a nice break from the normal! Kent loved collecting flyers (as usual), Evelyn was in heaven at the glitter and paint tables, and Oliver had a blast dancing to Kindermusic!

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Shot!

Yes! I realize now that you can't rotate videos! Hope you don't strain your neck to much!--Oliver insisted on having the scarf on his head while taping the sticks together!

More neck-bending dancing!

What Dad doesn't know won't hurt him . . .

The beginning of the beads going all over Dad's office.

What you can't see is the hundreds of teeny-tiny beads!

Evelyn "the beautiful"

Oliver's new favorite spot in Dad's office--he got the snack, cup, and blanket and then went to work making himself comfortable.

Winter Break 2009~

Shannon and I decided to make about 3 dozen rolls and 80 donuts at the same time. Looking back on it I am not sure why, but it was fun!
We went bowling on the last day of break, and I discovered that bowling is not the best venue for photos--only shots of backsides!

Add Image Kent still is in love with his mom!

There has been some questions lately in the news about my religion's ceremonies in our temples. I found this wonderful video that explains the sacredness of our temples. This is only for those who are interested, please don't feel obligated to watch.

Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred promises with God.
