Easter Duds

My kids in their Easter outfits. It was just taken today so it's not even on Easter but they still look good, right? Since Jayden wears a white shirt and suit now, he only got a new tie. Poor kid!! And I have to point out Jayden's new 'do. He's had shaggy hair for a while now and I have hated it! I know it's the style but I just couldn't stand it. I chose not to fight him over it because he is getting older and needs to have his own style and opinions but I was really starting to go crazy!! My tongue was starting to hurt from biting it so hard!! Anyway, when we were at my mom's for Easter, he saw a picture of himself where he had short, spikey hair. He looked at it for a while and said, "I want my hair to look like that!" So I jumped on that and gave him a haircut!! I just had to point it out because I think he looks so handsome and I'm just excited that he has short hair again!!

A long overdue update!

I think I am probably the worst blogger in history!! I don't know why I put it off for so long because then it takes me forever to do one post! And it probably takes forever for you guys to read them! I'm sorry! I'll do better, I promise!! Here's the update-

The first weekend in April my youngest brother Dave and his cute family came to visit us. We had so much fun but of course I didn't take very many pictures. I am famous for that!! We watched conference, went to dinner a couple of times, Scott and Dave went golfing, and we did a lot of just hanging out. It went way too fast but we enjoyed every minute that they were here! Thanks for coming guys! We went hiking on the Monument but didn't make it to our destination because poor Chloe fell on a cactus and got prickly's all over her leg! We got them all out and she was fine but she was so sad so we turned around and went home. We got a good hike in though and the kids had fun.

Dave, Chloe, Leah, and Ally.

Mase with the little girlies. He thinks they both are so cute. I think he's right!

All the girlies! They had a ton of fun together. Ally and Braedy played Pet Shops the entire time. We moved Brae's bed into the boys room and that's where Ally and Braedy slept. Chloe slept in Kaylen's room. It was tight quarters but so much fun!!

Cute Ally Kristine! She is such a sweet girl! She was fortunate enough to get to see Dr. Stoddard and we are happy to report she has no cavities! Yea, Ally!!

Kaylen and Chloe had a blast together! They played so good the entire time. The fed each other, took baths together, and just had a great time. It was so fun to see those little girlies together!

We played TONS of Guitar Hero. It was so much fun! Dave is AMAZING at the drums! I can't even make it through a song on drums! I guess guitar is my instrument! Look at the concentration on their faces!!

We went to Utah for Easter. It's always a good time when we get to spend time with family. We went on Friday and came home Monday so it was a little bit longer than the usual quick weekend trip. Thank goodness!! We were still as busy as ever and it always feels like we never get to see everyone or do everything that we want. Oh well. There's always next time!!

Kaylen with her Papa and Grandma. She LOVES getting to see them!!

The Friday before Easter, I had Emily and Savanna sleep over at my mom's with Braedy. They had lots of fun together! I only took a couple of pictures.

The girlies with their Easter art projects. They had a ton of fun!!

Emily, Savanna, and Braedy in the hot tub!

The day before Easter, we had a birthday party for my Grandma Pingree and an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. It was lots of fun and the kids got WAY more candy then they needed. WARNING: PICTURE OVERLOAD!! Sorry about all the pictures but there were so many to choose from and they were all too cute!!

Grandma Pingree on her 85th birthday!! She is such an amazing lady! I hope that I can someday be as wonderful as she is! Hope you had a great day, Grandma!!

These pics are on Easter morning. I didn't get very many. I guess I wasn't in the mood or something. I didn't even get pics of the kids in their Easter duds! Maybe I"ll do that this week!

Kaylen with her Easter Basket.

Mase and his Easter Basket. Jayden and Braedy slept over at their Grandma Stoddard's house so I didn't get any pictures of them with their baskets.

Kaylen and her bubble gun. The Easter Bunny was really nice this year!!

Well, there ya go, my long overdue update! Hopefully, I won't wait so long between posts this time!

Random pictures of my kiddos...

We haven't been doing much lately. Same old boring stuff!! We have an exciting weekend coming up though! Dave and Leah and their girls are coming to visit! I cannot wait! Anyway, here are a few fun pics of the kids...

Braedy, Masen, Kaylen, and Scott. Mase LOVES his baby sis! He's a "little" over-protective of her!!

Mase, Kay, and Scott. For some reason, it's really fun to hang out in mom and dad's room!!

Masen's favorite past time- Nintendo DS. Kaylen is obsessed with watching him!

Classic Kaylen.

Bug and Rae Rae playing Webkins.

The girlys!! Brae is such a great big sister, she's so patient with Kay Rae.

My cute boys! They have lots of fun together!!

This is Kaylen doing one of her favorite things....talking on the phone! We are so in trouble! She is only 2 and every single time one of us is on the phone she comes up to us and says, "I talk!" She loves it and will jabber forever! We have to pry it out of her hands!!
