For anyone who cares

As I mentioned in our first installment today we have been super busy. Just for and update on the happenings of our family Mike still loves his job!!!! He is very busy, but he really enjoys it. He hopes to have more time to go golfing this year because he did not get to go last year. He loves wrestling with the kids and chasing them around the house. He is very patient and a great husband and father.

I have been busy trying to get my house organized and keeping up with the kids. Mike and I have also been trying to get our house all painted. We have spent many late nights painting, but it is now paying off. We have almost the whole main level of our house painted and it looks awesome. I am in the Orchestra on Temple Square and it has been such a great opportunity for me to play my viola!! I do love it.

Brooke is in the second grade and she loves school. She is doing very well and she is so confident which is great since she really struggled last year. She loves her little brother and sister and they love her so much as well. When she get home from school she is often tackled with hugs from them.

Ashley is in preschool and loves her teacher. She has learned so much this year. She is a riot and is cracking us up constantly. The other day she called her Grandma Wood and said, "Will you come pick me up and take me shopping?" She loves to go shopping!!!

Max is a busy little boy. He loves balls!!! Basketball, football, baseball any ball!!! Yesterday I was at Costco and he had brought in a little basketball. He kept saying hi to everyone and then showing them his ball and saying ball. Then as I was ready to checkout he layed down on the floor with his basketball in hand and yelled touch down, touch down. Obviously we need to help him learn the right lingo for each game.

Happy Pictures

Mike made me a book for Christmas entitled Happy!! We are a happy family and he put some of these pictures into my book. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

My birthday

Mike really wanted to take me to Disneyland for my birthday, but because we bought our house we were not able to go so we did a Disney birthday at home.

More random pictures

Some of these pictures were taken on a family reunion last August.

Excuses, Excuses

So I do have a lot of excuses as to why it has been so long since I have blogged. I think I enjoy looking at other blogs rather than updating my own and we moved yet again. I really do hate moving. Anyhow, we have been in our new house since November and we really do enjoy owning a home. We love having a fenced in backyard with a swing set (trampoline will be coming this spring for sure!!!!) and we love that our kids each have there own bedrooms. We finally have space and it is super great. Here are some pictures of random things.
