 ...It kind of stinks that all of my kids think it's ok to continue to grow up... but I love THIS BOY so much!! I am so thankful for him and the cool kid that he is. I am a lucky mom! :)...
 ...Game night!!!...
 ...How he fell asleep tonight...
 ...Not gonna lie.. not too long ago the thought of eating a hard boiled egg mixed with avocado spread over whole wheat toast would have made me gag!! I have been on a journey learning how to eat better and have learned that I LOVE avocados. It's amazing how tastes change as your goals change, too. I have learned to like things I never thought I would, and enjoy trying new things!...
 ...I am thankful to live in such a beautiful place!! You can't see it well in the picture, but the sunshine rays through the clouds shining on the foggy mountains was beautiful! Also thankful we have finally gotten a little bit of RAIN!!...
 ...Received this in the mail today... it's a book of our family in 2014. I absolutely love how it turned out!!!...
 ...Date night at a Jazz game. Half-time!...
 ...Lazy Sundays are the best Sundays...
 ...We have been excited to get some white stuff this week... the kids love the snow and have missed it this winter!! I hate the snow, and even I missed it this winter!...
 ..........more and more snow!!...
 ...My sweet girl loves to color, draw, paint, and lately likes to make books. This book she wrote/illustrated is all about how she knows the Savior loves her. What an amazing thing it is to be a mom and see your children loving the gospel and gaining their own testimonies. My kids teach me so much about hope and having faith!...
 ...Practicing his yo-yo skills while we wait for the girls to finish dance class :)...
 ...This crazy-wild-sweet boy is my little shadow each and every day. I love him and his sweet face to pieces!!!...
...Kevin has been out of town for the week, so we sent him this short video. I sure love this sweet little boy, his cute voice, and his dimples!! I wish he could stay this age, it is such a fun stage. He makes me happy! :)...

 ...I love this picture. I love how Matthew is attacking his food. I love his curled toes. And I love new friends!...
...I sure do LOVE this girl of mine. Today was dance pictures. I am cheap and didn't want to pay for the pictures, so I decided to take some of my own. She is such a delight!!...

{family day}

Kevin works a lot of hours and late nights during tax season. We have a tradition... we always have a family day once the season is over to celebrate. This year we decided to make it a two day thing, and spent the night in a hotel. We went to Lehi and played for two days at Thanksgiving Pointe. We also enjoyed relaxing in our hotel room, after swimming in the pool of course!! It was the perfect mini get-away. We all enjoyed the much needed family time.

...Love this man!!! I also love that tax season is finally over. :)...

...TULIP FESTIVAL!!! It was hard to get a good picture because it was so bright outside, but it was a beautiful day!!! So fun being able to spend time with my favorite people, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and not be in a rush! :)...
