On May 6th David and I celebrated 6 years. I love this guy. Somehow I was lucky enough to find him. Somehow I was lucky enough to be chosen to be his forever. I love you Daver!

Let there be light!

We live in an old house. 60 years old to be exact. We have no lights in our front room. Well except for a big weird light box that only shown light on the floor directly below it. So what did we do? We tore out that hideous light box. Installed 16 next can lights and repainted the kitchen.

Ya.....we are awesome.

Easter weekend.

David had Easter weekend off this year! So we packed up the kids and headed to Santaquin to see my side of the family. There was egg coloring.

Chandler's very first dentist appointment. He did great.

And a tour of Santaquin. First we headed to the museum. Chandler loved the military doll display. Had burgers at the Santaqueen and got some delicious treats at the red barn. It was a perfect little vacation.

Chandler's Pirate Party!

Chandler has been talking about having a pirate party for a year now. So we threw him one. Luckily for us we were able to spend it with a lot of our family! David was our leader on the treasure hunt. Chandler kept saying how "scary" pirate daddy was.

He loved all of his gifts. He even got a big boy bike.

Our cute little pirate!

The treasure hunt.

We love our little Chandler and were so glad a lot of our family was able to celebrate his birthday with us.

Brinlee vs. Iverson

Brinlee is now 18 months and guess what? I can get her hair into braided pigtails! Now that is saying something considering some children are completely bald until they are 2. I love having a little girl. I love making her hair fancy. It took some time to get this little hair do perfect. When I was done I rushed Brinlee out to the garage to show daddy how adorable she was. I was so excited and told David to look how pretty our little princess was. David said "Oh she is adorable, our little Iverson baby." What?!? Brinlee does not look like Allen Iverson. The only thing they have in common is that they are both really good at throwing fits.
Oh well. I still think she is a pretty little princess no matter what. Iverson hair or not!

Why is it that your second child becomes a toddler so much faster than your first? Where has my baby gone? I just love this little Brinner! She is so much fun and we love having her running around our home.
A few things to know:

*She loves to swing. While we were in Blanding last week Grandma took the kids to the park (she is brave). Brinlee just loved swinging, she even pumps her little legs.

*She loves her baby doll. A few weeks ago she was sick with a double ear infection and strep throat. She was a VERY sick little girl. She wanted her baby by her the entire time. Mommy got her baby a towel for her head to and Brinlee was very happy to see her baby was getting better with her. Her baby is very loved and knows how to say mama (well brin says it for her). There is not a day that Brins doesn't have her baby in her arms. She is a very good mom.

*She loves to cheese it up. Just look at the picture, this kid really loves to have her picture taken. Anytime a camera is out she puts on her cheese face and is ready.

Brinlee will be 18 months on the 20Th. I just can't believe she is ready to go to nursery! We love our Brinner.

Down on Aunt Kim's Farm.....

There are happy little babies!
Goats eating cookies.

A turkey that will let you pet it.

And little boys feeding chickens.

Auntie Kim and Uncle Clayton have quite the set up at their new home. A place for their horses and lots of fun farm animals. The kids had a great time being around the animals. I now want chickens, yes I want chickens. Thanks for the fun day Kim and Clayton!

Sister for Sale!

Brinlee is my sweetie. She hardly cries and has always been a very happy little girl. That is until recently. She is teething and it is extremely miserable around our house. You know the routine: up in the middle of the night, never wanting anything to eat, short fuse(baby and mommy), and all the whining. Pray for me!

Now you know that let me tell you a little story.....

Today while the kids were playing in the playroom I heard a CRASH and then Chandler crying. That's right Chandler, normally it is Brin and I was a little freaked out. I got up to go see what had happened. Chandler met me half way and told me the whole terrible story. Short Version: Brinlee was stealing his toys and he told her no so she pulled his hair and then hit him in the face (according to Chandler). He also said "She is extra mean to me today!"

I got after Brin and put her to bed then had a talk with Chandler. I told him that little sisters don't know how to share and so big brothers need to be a good example. Plus, she a super sad so no matter what you do she isn't going to be happy. At the end of our talk Chandler looked at me and said "I think we could sell her. Is that a good idea?" Hahahahahahaha! I couldn't stop laughing. Kids. I told him no and he was very unhappy that I didn't agree. Afterwards I thought about a poem I use to love in elementary school.
