Im trying to think all that has been going on these past few weeks and Its all a blur!
Tom has been super busy with teaching and softball and Young Mens. last week he had 5 games. Tuesday Wednesday Friday and double header on saturday. I dont know if i saw him at all. Because of softball he cant do any work after school gets out and so he has to usually go in early. That means he's gone from 630 to about 6ish on practice days. And then wednesdays is YM day so he goes straight to the church after practice. When theres a game he is gone even later. And when there is an away game (which can be as far as 2 hours away).. well you get the idea. The poor kiddos sometimes dont see him. But he is doing pretty well so far. I believe their record is 7-3 right now and last year it was like 7-15 so right now looks like he will be doing better then last year.
I was just telling tom... i dont remember what its like when you came home at 4 everyday. Thatll be interesting when softball is over. And then summer when he'll be home!
Dulany is well... an almost 4 year old. Which means shes got some attitude! but for the most part she's a happy girl. She's really starting to get an imagination and plays really well in her room with her doll house and princesses and what not. Oh yes. She is OBSESSED with barbie/princesses/etc. Now that its nice outside and we finally got a lawn mower to cut the grass she's been out there whenever its not raining. She also loves check lists. She is always asking when are we going to the store and to make a list of dinners and what we need for camping (? haha). and she makes Xs all over the paper when she "checks it off".
other then that we've been going to visit daddy at school for lunch when we dont feel like we see him enough. We've gone to a few of the softball games and Dulany loves getting popcorn and a lolipop at the snack bar. We try to find new projects to do as well around the house since its been raining quite a bit this month along with a few play dates (yay for finding friends and for kiddos to play with D!) She is also the little helper. she loves to help clean my room, do dishes, sweep, and fold laundry. My question is... how long does this last?! Oh and we finally signed up for a costco card. This is Miss D's new favorite place. She LOVES "hostco" she always wants to go get "smoovies" and a "hostco hot dog" Other then that we are patiently waiting for summer! 8 more weeks till summer vaca!
I would write about the boys but ill wait till tomorrow for their 9 month post (AHHH!!)
here are just some random pictures i took.
we got a new jumper/exersaucer thing. The boys really like it!! and its nice to put in the kitchen when i am busy doing dishes/cooking.
sadly i only have pics of Mr. K in it.
little miss princess.
the other day we had our only tree cut down in our hard. i guess things from the tree were falling on the roof and the management company didnt like it.
Miss D watching the tree come down. she thought it was awesome!
We had Dad, Jon, Kaylee and Miss Ayla come down for a visit this weekend. Dad had a load on friday to riddle so he could watch Tom coach a game. We all went and it was fun> We lost sadly but it was to a realllly good team. Im sad i didnt take any pictures of the kiddos watching the game. Jon kaylee and ayla got here that night and Dulany was SOOO hyper and excited for Ayla to have a sleep over.
Saturday we all went to Susan Creek Falls again and went to the waterfall. it was kinda cold and sprinkled a bit but it was still pretty and a perfect little hike for all the kids.
Here are pictures im stealing from Kaylee!
Grandpa gave D a little ride!
me and the girls. I look like a shlubb but oh well. the girls look cute!
the boys in the bobsled!
these girls were racing!
going up to the waterfall
cute little family of (soon to be 4)
that night jon and kaylee were kind enough to babysit!
Tom and I got invited by a couple in our ward who owns his own chiropractic office to a auction/dinner for the local high school. We went and it was really fun. We bid on a few small things and obviously didnt win anything. There were a few BIG prizes that people paid hundreds of dollars for.. even 1000+! It was really fun and it was a free dinner!
then we chaperoned PROM hahaha oh man i felt old. But i also felt like i was still in high school. It was only 7 years ago when i had sr prom (which i didnt even go to).
it was definitely interesting to go to a small schools prom. This school is so small the prom had freshman-seniors attend. It was the Footloose theme and so it was pretty fun.
to be honest. i felt like i was a stake dance.
i was impressed though. there wasnt a lot of bumping and grinding like i thought there would be!
one of the cutest things was that the principal brought his 9 year old daughter with him as his date. there were 2 other sisters who came with a chaperone too and it looked like those little girls had the most fun out of everyone there.
Then they asked me to do the sashes for the prom court. um.... ok. I made tom come with me. Luckily it wasnt too bad haha.
Then tom had a student that pulled tom aside and said "if you dont ask your wife to dance the next slow dance im going to ask her" ... um awkward! haha Luckily the kid left early. I thought it was kind of funny though.
All in all it was a fun get away just the two of us. Although i will never stay up that late again. I go to bed at the time prom started. I yawned the whole night and i was dead tired. Whew...
and im really sad i didnt get a pic of Tom and I before we left! we were in a hurry.
here are pics i stole from kaylee of the night they had with all the kiddos.
the men! I guess jon made kemp laugh like crazy that night. Im not shocked!
all the kids in their jammies
Dulany recently f ound all my heels that have been collecting dust in the closet. Ayla and d trying them on!
a big thanks to kaylee and jon for watching the boys and Dulany!
stay tuned for a 9 month post of the boys tomorrow (or the next day.. im always a day late!)
