I know there are some of you still out there that read the blog and aren't fessing up. Please do. I'm happy if you know me through your sister's cousin's friend's boyfriend's nephew and you just like stalking me, really I do. So if it makes you feel better, send me an e-mail with your e-mail and I'll add you. You don't even have to put it in the comments. I'd love to have as many people reading my blog as possible, I'm just trying to keep it from the spammers and creepers. Thanks. You have a week.

Dutch Days

We donned any orange our closets were holding and headed off to fork out some major lettuce for Dutch Days at Thanksgiving Point. The tulips were gorgeous, the grounds were impressive, the croquettes delicious and the wooden shoes were painted, but Russ and I decided it wasn't all that impressive for the money.


I love having connections. I just need lots more. Allie works with someone who owns her own farm and she has a "Farm Day" every spring. I got to hold a goat, have a cow suck my fingers, be a horse, pet a goat, sheep, cow and a horse. Oh and the girls had a good time too.

Russ' Birthday

Russ' birthday began with some sleeping in, then he had to work-it for some of the day. Once work finished, we headed off to Bounce On It. We all had a fabulous time and are seriously considering getting our own trampoline. Then we went shopping and off to buy Russ a cupcake to sing with and blow out a candle (we had a serious stock pile of cakes from previous celebrating). Then Russ was bestowed with some awesome gifts. We fed the children and sent them off to bed and had them watched while we went and had yummy shrimp at Red Lobster, went for a walk and sipped Jamba Juice. I think he had a good birthday. I hope so because I'm SO happy he was born!

Hannah's Birthday

Hannah has finally turned two. Maybe with my last I'll feel like time is flying by, but now, time mostly moves at a snail's pace. Hannah had a fabulous time going swimming at the Lehi pool, eating noodles, blowing out her candles one by one by spitting/blowing and of course opening presents and eating cake and ice cream.

We're going private (again).
Let me know if you want to be on the special list.
Sorry to be so wishy-washy.

Your Conference?

I'm sure your conference is full of children dressed in church clothes sitting reverently in chairs before the tv. Well there is the tv and we are definitely all in the same room trying to listen to the prophets, but we also have fun doing hair while we watch.

Silly Easter Bunny

So the Easter bunny must have not read the weather report when he came to hide our eggs the night before Easter. . .Hence when we opened the door to go and collect the bounty, there were no eggs to be seen. They had been covered with a complete blanket of snow. So that little hunt waited until late afternoon when the snow had thankfully all melted. Luckily the Easter bunny opted not to stick the baskets outside. Here is a picture of the girls enjoying the baskets and the lawn after some of the snow had melted.

Dyeing the Eggs (and picking the nose)

Easter Girls

So maybe the week before Easter girls. Conference kind of moved up the Easter dress wearing a bit prematurely.

Go Blue Devils!

Tonight Russ and I are rounding up some tasty nachos from my favorite Mexican place of late--Taco Amigo. It's locally owned and run and man is it yummy! I'm already tasting the peach shakes of August. Ah but I digress. . .so with these tasty nachos we are going to be cheering on Duke in the NCAA finals. Please say that somehow, somewhere this is going to give us good karma and Duke is going to admit Russ off of the waitlist and admit him soon! Some day I'll tell you the torture that is applying for business school. The horror of waiting and waiting. High as a kite one day and low as low the next. One of those highs was hearing Russ got into BYU's MBA program with the Dean Scholarship (the highest they give). If it's my husband I can brag, right? ;) But really doesn't North Carolina and it's beaches sound nice, when it's been such crappy weather here! Oh spring where art thou?! GO Blue Devils and let us in already!
