Spring Break 2015

Spring Break was pretty low key because I had my annual Dental convention to attend. However, we did get to do some fun things the days I was home. We kicked of the Week by going to the Ostrich Festival. The kids had a blast riding all the rides, seeing the petting zoo animals, sharks, ostrich races, magic show, acrobats, exotic birds, and eating good food. We were exhausted after that fun day but decided to go to BJ's and get pizza and hot cookies with ice cream to celebrate Wyatts upcoming birthday. Bentley got to go play with some of his friends and he also got to see his cousins during the break. We went to splash pads, parks, rode bikes, went swimming with cousins, went to see cinderella the movie, ate at chick fil a (their favorite), and hung out with family and friends. My mom was a saint to take all four kids for two of the days I was at convention. Jon and I even had a fun date without the kids Saturday to go play volleyball. That Sunday to end spring break we celebrated wyatt and my brother Tylers birthdays with the family. We enjoyed the nice weather and had funny visiting and catching up. Oh I almost forgot! The Tuesday during spring break was St. Patricks day so we had fun dressing up in green, riding bikes, and making spring shaped and frosting colored sugar cookies. No one got pinched luckily and The had fun coloring activity pages about St. Patrick. I have really come to enjoy going to Dental convention since I get to go with my dad, brother, and his buddy. It breaks up the monotony of it all. Enjoy the pics.

Wyatts 3rd Birthday!

Our Wyatt boy has turned the big three. This is the age that all of our kids seem to believe they are big stuff and want to be independent. Wyatt likes to dress himself all the way to putting on his shoes and socks. He is quite particular about what he wears and loves to match his daddy. Wyatt continues to hold true to his nature and is a big tease. He likes to poke until he has gotten the reaction he wants. Sometimes it is fun/funny and other times it is not! He has the third child syndrome and is always trying to get attention in ways that he shouldn't. He gives the best pucker kisses. Although he can be rough at times, other times he is my sweet charmer. I love the sprinkle of freckles across his cue little button nose. I love his big eyes when he stares into mine. I love his creamy white skin that is still as soft as when he was a newborn baby. Wyatt loves everything boy. He likes to play fight/wrestle with everyone who is willing and sometimes the not so willing. He loves trucks, motorcycles, and cars. He loves ninja turtles and does the cutest dance to the theme song. He also is pretty good to go along with Baileys imagination and play dolls, dress up, and house with her. Just this morning he was burping his Elmo next to me while I was burping Sophia. He has such a soft heart and is my little Wy guy. His uncles and some of his cousins like to call him wee man. He is learning to really recognize the alphabet and some of his numbers. He likes to "read" books to himself and will rarely hold still long enough for me to read him one. He likes to play football and doing anything his big brother Bentley is doing. He likes to ride bikes and play at the park with cousins or friends. He wears big boy undies now and officially got potty trained 3 days before his 3rd birthday. He likes not having to wear diapers now and although potty training was rough, I am glad we both stuck with it. Happy birthday Wyatt. Your family loves you and adores you. Your smile brightens every room and we are lucky to have you in our family. For your birthday we went to the Ostrich festival, ate at a favorite pizza place where we sang happy birthday to you. Since your birthday was on a sunday we went to church and they sang happy birthday to you in your nursery class. Then after we went home and had your favorite lunch of quesadillas and opened presents. You asked for ninja turtles go figure and a green motorcycle. You also wanted new fast running shoes that were blue. Later that day we went to grandma and grandpa Curtis' to celebrate there with cousins and had ninja turtle cupcakes. You were happy as can be and really enjoyed your special day!

Febuary 2015 activities

February was filled with great weather and quality outdoor fun as a family! We watched Bentleys football games on Saturdays and practices during the week. He is doing well and has really learned a lot this season from coach shaun. We rode bikes and went on walks. The kids played out back and enjoyed climbing in the trees. We went swimming at a heated pool that the kids love. We had our dental and yearly check ups done. We are so blessed to be healthy. We went to feed the ducks. Wyatt went to the zoo with grandma and his cousin Trey. He had a blast and got to ride the camel. We celebrated cousin Trey's third birthday at the bike park. We have been their several times with no accidents but Bentley crashed hard this time as did some of the other kids that were their with us. He scraped his face and knees as well as cutting his lip. He looked scary for awhile poor boy. Jon took Bentley ice skating. We celebrated valentines and our anniversary. We met new friends and she took the most gorgeous photos of the kids for me. Thats our February in a quick review. Sophia is really growing and getting some chubbiness to her. She is still pretty small for her age. The 25th percentile I think. She is tall and skinny. She smiles and has really started noticing what is around her. Wyatt is starting to really come into his own. He has opinions, and knows what he likes! He has gotten really fast on his balance bike. He still loves to tease and wrestle anyone that comes near him. Bailey continues to be a little mommy around the house and likes to mother her siblings. She walks around on her toes with ease. She loves to do her hair pretty every morning and pick new hairstyles to try. She has been begging me to get her ears pierced. We are going to wait on that. She is a free spirit and can but heads with me but I am trying to learn more patience and realize that she is just her own little person. Bentley is progressing quickly through school. He is a rule follower to the T and I have overheard some funny conversations between he and his friends. He loves football and he loves to draw and color. He had a fun birthday and has started using magna tiles to build and create. Jon got a new calling and was put in scouts to work with the 8-9 year old boys in our church. He is excited for a change and we got to go to their big blue and gold banquet which was really fun. The kids helped Jon build a tower of balloons and they won tallest tower. Funny thing is they started like five plus minutes after everyone else who had older kids helping as well. I am still trying to gain balance with everything. I serve in young women's still and we had our annual fundraiser of making truffles for valentines day and also our new beginnings to welcome in the new girls.
