Color me mine!

We took the kids to color me mine, I thought it was so fun!  James told me that was the most stressful activity he could imagine!!  The kids had a blast but to be honest I was too busy painting to notice how many times Violet, Preston and Ruby dumped paint everywhere!!!  I think we will wait until they are a bit older to venture out there again!

Violet turns 6!!!

Violet June had her 6th birthday party at Provo Beach Resort!  She invited all her cute little kindergarten friends and they went bowling, played arcade games, rode the carousel  and finished off with pizza, ice cream and cake!!!  She had a wonderful birthday party and loved every second of being the center of attention!!!

Slightly obsessed with Doc McStuffins!!!

Fireside 2015

Dorothy performed in Lifehouse's annual fireside.  This year the theme was "Divine connection" it was beautiful and so uplifting!  The girls are all so talented and the music brings the spirit!  I love that Dorothy has the opportunity to perform with so many strong spirits and build her testimony!!
Can you see the lights on their costumes?!  It was so neat!!!

Mom and Dad Come home!!!

My parents finished their 3rd mission and returned from Berlin, Germany after 18 months.  We missed them SO SO SO much but are so grateful for their example.  Before they came home we had to get their house clean and ready for their arrival!  To say they had a box elder infestation is a HUGE understatement!!  We defrosted the freezer, washed the sheets, towels, dusted everywhere, mopped, vacuumed and deep cleaned the entire house top to bottom!!  It took HOURS but we honestly had so much fun doing it, it did not feel like work!  We also went shopping and stocked the fridge and got necessities!  I'm so glad that we were able to do this because it was such a blessing to be able to help out our parents and giggle as sisters!!!

Dot turns 11!!!

Dorothy had her 11th birthday party we rented a hotel room and invited 12 girls.  I picked them all up at school and took them up to Provo.  They all got dressed and went swimming!  They swam for hours and I ordered pizza.  After swimming we had a pizza party up in the room and each girl got a bag of candy and a blanket with their initial sewn on it.  We watched a movie and I took the girls home around 10:30.  We stayed the night as a family in the hotel and I can honestly say that was the best birthday party ever!  I think from here on out we will do the hotel thing!  No mess, loud partying somewhere else and entertainment included (with the pool)!

Happy New Year!!!

We celebrated New Years in style!!  Our annual family party was at our house this year and we played games, had a photo booth, ate Texas roadhouse ribs, and lost track of time so bad that the kids actually stayed up till midnight for the first time!!  We had a blast and loved spending time as a family and love this fun tradition!!!!
