On Friday Bear and Emilie had a movie night with the neighbors. They sent out invitations,told them we would watch Bolt, and had them all bring their favorite snack. This was so much fun. I fixed up their snacks, took a few pictures and turned on the movie. All the kids were so excited, they even came in their pj's. I went down to check on them and they were all actually watching the movie. I didn't think they would make it all the way through, but they did and it was the cutest thing ever!

Once the movie was over they all got a little on the wild side and we had to find a quiet activity to do until their parents came. Such a cute group of kids!

Our BUSY Saturday!

Just posting our busy Saturday! We did so many fun things and it kept us all busy...busy enough that Dave didn't even go to work. (And he has to be really busy for him not to be doing taxes this time of year)
We started off our morning helping put together the Special Needs Easter Egg Hunt which I do for work and it was a great success. We have participated in this for 3 years now and we love it.


We then headed over to Megan's Basketball games (this is really why Dave missed work). It is so much fun to watch her and her friends play, they have always been undefeated and so far this year they are carrying on the tradition. She played 3 games today against Hurricane, Kanab and Pine View and won them all. They just have next week until the tournament.

Inbetween her games I ran Emilie to her soccer game. She loves playing the game and the best part is that she gets a snack at the end of the game.

Last but not least we had dinner at my mom's with all of the Holland family. It was so fun to see them all. It has been a long time since we have been with them and it was fun to get cought up and see how big all of their kids are doing.

Nothing better to do...

have a water fight!
Bear and our "adopted son" Easton having a great spring break!

Spring Break 2009

We had a great Spring Break this year. We did nothing and it was so relaxing. My sister came down for part of the break from Fallon, Nevada with her kids and we played with them. We went to zions and hiked the Emerald Pools and Josh did the whole hike! I was amazed that he made it the whole way without having to be carried. "Bear" ran the whole way and I huffed and puffed the whole way (I am so out of shape). Of course Dave worked and he didn't get to come with us. We had a fun time.

The rest of the week the kids ran around with the neighbors and I scrapbooked for 4 straight days. We sent Megan to Disneyland with her friends. What a relaxing week!

I am back in the blogging world.....

Hopefully I can stay caught up with my blog. I have been so unmotivated lately and last night at bunko I got remotivated!! (Big thanks to Gretchen, Lainee and Dana!!!) They have published thier whole year of blogging into a book and it is AMAZING!. She doesn't even have to scrapbook anymore and the journaling is done.. Hallalulia! I am going to try this I wish I could go back and put posts of the whole year last year but I think I will just start with this year and move forward...who has the time to go back.
