We have grass in the backyard!

Michael has been wanting to take out the rocks and put in grass since we moved in.  We finally got it done!  They even put in lighting and a new sidewalk.  The other side of the pool is still rock for now, as well as the front.  I wasn't that concerned about it, but now that it is done I love it!! 

Nathaniel's Birthday

Nathaniel is 15!  Once again, his request to celebrate his birthday was a night out with just his Mom and Dad.  The Friday before his birthday, we went to Red Lobster for dinner and then to Dairy Queen for dessert.  On Monday, his Grandpa and Grandma came over for cake and ice cream and presents.  My baby is growing up!!!

Happy Easter

We have had a wonderful weekend watching General Conference, which is a broadcast from Salt Lake City, Utah.  We get to hear from our prophet, the apostles, and other leaders of the church.  I am grateful for the inspired words we heard and for the messages about Jesus Christ and his atonement and resurrection.  I know he lives and I am so grateful for him!
This is the Easter/spring wreath we made
There are a few minor changes around here. 
First, Nathaniel got contacts.  Doesn't he look handsome?
Emily got braces!  She chose pink and teal colored bands.

Daniel got new glasses

Andrew got new glasses.  Oops, that's a photo bomb!

Here he is again.  The other kids call him "Squints" (from The Sandlot).  He also got an expander at the orthodontist, to make more room for his teeth on top.

And here is Jonny.  He doesn't need braces or glasses, but he actually wanted his picture taken (which almost never happens) so I obliged.
Happy Easter!!
