Train Park

We went to the train park with Aunt Amy today. The kids had so much fun with their cousins! Lyza and Rhett played so well, and loved to ride on the merry-go-round and the train. So needless to say, we went a lot of times! Cyndal was scared to sit on the merry-go-round alone so I sat with her! I bet it was a funny sight to see, but we had fun. We ate lunch and headed for the play ground. I must admit I was probably the most paranoid out of all the parents! There were so many kids if I took my eyes off one of mine it took a minute to find them again. So I had a few scares! One time I found Cyndal all the way across the park walking around, and the other time I found her happily holding a strangers hand! She scares the crap out of me! I am terrified she will be stolen because she is fearless and so happy!

Happy 28th Big Sis

I cant believe we are this old! I threw my sister Jacquelyn a party since we were in town. I made her favorite dinner; broccoli and cheese soup with bread bowls and salad for dinner. We also had cake and ice cream for dessert. I found it so funny to put all 28 candles on the cake and I told her it looked like the cake was on fire! She didnt find it as funny as I did. In all reality mine would look very similar with only two less! It was so fun to have an excuse to get the family together. It seems like yesterday when we had no cares in the world playing with our barbies and dressing up our little brother in my clothes! Time is a crazy thing.

Grandpa White

Grandpa is known by everyone for his harmonica. He carries one with him all the time, and plays for the kids. They all are always mesmerized by it, and by him. Lyza has a special fondness for Grandpa, that has rubbed off onto Cyndal. I love watching my kids with him you can tell they share a special bond. Last time we came to town Lyza asked where Grandpa was. We said right there and pointed to Grandpa Rich and Lyza said, "No, the White one" referring to Grandpa White.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Lyza had green eggs and green milk for breakfast, Cyndal was a little unsure! Then we were invited to a party at the park! There was a leprechaun treasure hunt for the kids! They had so much fun following the clues to find the treasure box full of candy!

Look who we are babysitting

This week the girls and I are turtle-sitting! Aunt Angela and her family are on vacation, so we are watching Blakes pet turtle! The cutest little thing ever! The girls have a hard time letting him get some exercise in the sun, they just want to hold him! Its so easy to get the girls in the car to go take care of him, but so hard to get them back in the car to leave! We usually have crocodile tears, and wailing arms! He sure is cute!

Time is flying!

Another week has passed. Marcus is enjoying his time externing at the hospital in Phoenix, but we haven't seen much of him. He leaves before we get up and gets home around dinner time. We eat, spend a little time, get the kids in bed, Marcus has to read and prepare his presentation, so I craft, and then comes another day! The girls and I have been enjoying family and the weather! Its been really nice. But week two has come and gone! We headed up to the Cabin in Pine Top for some boarding and some time by the lake! It was so beautiful!

Lehi Rodeo

We are so excited that we will be here for the Lehi Days Rodeo again this year. We went every year growing up, and Lyza enjoyed it so much last year we jumped at the chance to go this year. The girls loved the petting zoo. Cyndal wanted to kiss everything, kinda gross and cute at the same time. We had bbq lunch that is so yummy every year, and then headed to the stands to watch the events. Lyza loved the Drill team, she commented on the pretty designs they painted on the horses, and said she was going to do that when she was big enough. During the rodeo several times Lyza said "This day is the best day ever Mama! I love the rodeo". This was even before the chicken chase! When it came time to do the chicken chase, Lyza was confident she was going to catch another chick. Marcus and I kept trying to prepare her for not catching one, whats the chance of her catching one two years in a row.... Well she did, and she was so excited! She kept saying "I told you I would, I just ran and snatched it right up!" Lyza named her Rosie.

Here we come!

I have so many feelings about the next couple months... We are going to be in Arizona the next 2 months for Marcus' externships. I am excited to get out of the snowy weather, but not excited to be away that long. March we will be staying at Grandma Teresa's while Marcus attends the Phoenix V.A. Then in April the girls and I will be nomads and travel while Marcus goes down to Tucson for his externship there. Here we go this should be exciting!
