...just cute boys (first #5, then #4) all ready for church.
We did LOTS of fun play dates--made treats, decorated flags & aprons & hats, painted, etc. This is #5 and his best friend in aprons they created decorating cupcakes.
SNOW!! We've had so much snow this year and have thoroughly, truly, completely enjoyed it! #5 and #4 play super well together--especially outside--and really loved a snow filled trampoline.
#2 (second from the left) and #3 had their basketball seasons end. Both improved tremendously and had a ton of fun. Mike coached #3; #2's coach said Caleb is an example of the reason he continues to coach because he was sincere, hard working, and much improved.
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief came out!! Mike was gone a lot in February, but we sure made the most of it including this party that lasted most of the day. We made our own Camp Half Blood shirts and camp necklaces, went to see the movie, took the quiz to find out if they might be a half blood, and played half blood all day. While we were NOT IMPRESSED with the movie (they messed up our favorite characters, made no effort to follow the plot, and even added some more grown up parts to it), we had a blast! (#1 has glasses, #4 is right in front of him, #2 has #5's friend on his lap, #3 is the curls on the right, and #5 is wearing a striped shirt.)
Can't get enough of the zoo. We go every time the weather permits and mom can clear her calendar. Since all but #5 are in school, we usually have #5's best friend, #5, and cousin "whirlwind" (left to right).
We were able to stop and walk around the temple grounds. When the boys got home from school that day, #5 shouted, "We went to the TEMPLE, and I felt the SPIRIT!"
