A quick update on us:




We took the kids skiing and snowboarding for the first time this winter. The weather was perfect. I wore Sienna in the front pack and ran down the practice hill teaching Madison how to ski. Brody and Warwick flew down on their snowboards with Jason. It's crazy how fast kids pick up things and how they have no fear. By the end of the day they were going down the easy runs and loving it.





Brody lost his front two teeth a few months ago.


He is a little worried because they haven't grown back yet.


He keeps asking, "What if they never grow back?" He made this hat on the 100th day of school.


We got a dog named Ernie. He only lasted a few weeks. He was perfect. Our kids loved him, but he loved us too much. He tried to bite anyone who came near us. So we had to give him back to his owners.


Madison running the jog-a-thon at school. She did great! Brody ran too. He loved it.


For spring break this year we went to Utah. The kids had a blast playing with tons of cousins.



We visited Temple Square.







My niece got married in the SLC temple during spring break. Here is the family all dressed up for the big occasion. My mom made Madison's jacket. I love it!








I went outside to water my flowers and I came back into the house and found these two little cuties sound asleep together. I love this.


Easter egg hunt at the school.




Easter Sunday.


The Easter Bunny came while we were at church and our yard was covered in hidden goodies. The kids were in heaven. Warwick kept saying, "This is the best Easter day ever!"
Sienna started sucking her fingers a few weeks ago.


I can't stop her....


And just because she is so cute...











If you look really close, you can see her cute little earrings. Yep, I pierced her ears last week. While she was getting them done, I heard a little girl tell her mom, "See Mommy, even that baby gets to have her ears pierced!" And then the mom replied, "Different rules in different houses!"


I guess I am a bad mom...but, she looks so cute!


And don't worry, while I was away at a track meet, Jason took the kids to get a new dog. Meet Maggie. She is awesome, but she does like to sneak out every once in awhile.





Here is my rugged husband in our woods. He loves his yard and spends every spare moment beautifying it. I love it!

Hooray you posted! I hadn't heard about the dog. She is cute. Sienna has changed so much since the last photos I saw. I can't wait to meet her in person.

I can't believe that you have gone through two dogs in 4 months. I hope this one makes it:)
Your kids are getting so big so fast. We need to get together soon!
