I love to laugh! long and loud and clear!

just had to share :)

3 Months!

I cannot believe how quickly these last 3 month have gone by!  It has been nothing but wonderful.  Lynlee has really started to get interactive these last few weeks.  It is so much fun.  She laughs, and plays all day long.  So, here are some of the photos from today:

dark blue eyes, just like Mommy!

Lynlee has started getting really excited about looking around her.  One of her favorite things to do is just to lay on the ground and look and look.  We figured out how to hang toys above her on a wooden dowel so that she has something to entertain herself with.  She can lay on the ground and reach (with her feet) and kick for an hour at a time and stay completely happy.  It is so cute.  Today she was up to her usual routine, so Dane took a video:

Apparently all that kicking really wore her out because when he looked over at her a few minutes later, he found this:

Spring Break in St. George

My oldest sister, Elizabeth, turned 40 on April 13th.  So, to celebrate, my mom invited all of the girls in my family to spend a long weekend at my parents' vacation home in St. George.  Sisters flew in from Texas, Seattle, Iowa and drove from Vegas, Provo and Salt Lake to get together.  All 7 of my sisters were able to make it along side my mother, and her mother as well.  We had a blast. 
Most of our time was spent hanging out with the 4 babies, talking, eating great food and shopping.  Right before I drove home Sunday, we went to church and had to get a picture with all of us! (Actually one is missing.  Sarah had to drove home on Saturday.)

Lynlee is getting big!

Lynlee has been getting so big recently. I didn't feel like I had a good comparison until my sister, Emalei, showed me this picture she took last night...

Compare that to this picture I took when Lynlee was only 2-3 weeks old...
We love our little growing lady!

Welcome Spring!

Today was the first day of spring break, and oh, it has been wonderful. I have had a chance to get caught up on cleaning, grocery shopping, and have been loving the warm weather. The windows have been open all day and I love the smell and feel of fresh air in the house. MMmmmm. So great.

I have also been able to catch up on some unfinished projects. One of them was for our front door. We have a house number, but it is basically hidden by a tree and it makes our place really hard to find. So, we have been talking about putting something a little more recognizable on the door for a while. Had a great idea, but just never had the time to sit down and take care of it. So, thanks to my X-acto knife and a little help from my cricut, this is what you will see when you come visit us from now on:

Don't you think it will be easier to find our place now?
(And for those of you wanting to know, contrary to popular belief, we didn't move here just for the house number.) :)

Weekend updates

I just wanted to post a few updates from the weekend. First, I had an awesome April Fool's day on Friday. I decided that goofy holidays like that should always be on Friday. The faculty at my school rotate who brings treats for our monthly training meetings and I was super excited that it was my turn with some other teachers. I brought mini hamburger.
April Fools! They are cupcakes with green coconut shavings, red frosting and brownie patties. The other teachers with me brought fake meat loaf (rice krispy treats) and kitty litter cake. They were all quite tasty.

Dane and I were able to spend the weekend at my parents' house and watch general conference. It was a much needed, very restful weekend. Lynlee got to hang out with a lot of family, including her cousin, Zoey. Here the two girls are with their daddies!

Last night before bed, Dane and I put Lynlee in her pajamas and were happy to see that she has graduated to her medium ducky outfit. And by medium, I think I need to give a little bit of an explanation. We bought a little newborn outfit for Lynlee before she was born because we saw it at the store and couldn't resist. She is wearing it in this picture. Then at 2 baby showers, we were given the exact same outfit but in 2 more sizes: 3-6 months and 6-9 months. We laughed and were thrilled to know that for the first year of her life or so, Lynlee with be able to sleep in duckies. I hadn't realized how much she had grown until we put the newborn size outfit next to her:

We are proud of you, Lynlee, Keep growning.
