Happy Easter!

Filling up her Easter pail.

Finally, one picture where they're kinda looking and smiling at the camera without crying.

Sadie is trying to shove her treats into her prize (the purse), while Diesel escapes.

Diesel was trying to figure out what everyone was doing, running all around the court for the 0-3 yrs. easter egg hunt. He managed to scrounge up a few treats though.

"Put the toys away please"

I asked the kids to put the toys away and I guess Diesel thought he was a toy and tried to tuck himself in the drawer. Not really, just a fun picture of Diesel exploring his environment.

Diesel's 1st Birthday

Well, we celebrated Diesel's birthday on Sunday because I have school all day on Mondays. He shares his birthday with Uncle Joe and Aunt Janelle on March 24th.

Levi and Ruthie came over and had a BBQ and cake and ice cream. Diesel really enjoyed his cake and kept laughing back at us for laughing at him the whole time. He's the only one of our kids that actually enjoyed digging in with his hands and eating. The video is funny. I'll see if I can get some of that footage and post it.

Spring Break

We took the kids and headed over to Denver for my spring break last week. I worked on Eric's office computers and did some other maintenance items at his office. We then did some reconstruction on his home by widening his garage opening and putting in a wider door also. I think there's some pics from my mom I'll have to get that she took.

Then he did some maintenance on Casey Ann and I. We both got some crown preps done. I asked the Doctor (Eric) for some NOS (laughing gas) and he graciously obliged me. He cranked it to the max for me (thank you!). It's the 2nd time I've ever experienced it, though the 1st time, the tank was low and I had a stuffy nose at the time and so I didn't get the full affect. Not so this time. I was definitely loopy from the start this time. My hands felt like they weighed 100 lbs. each. While loopy, I tried to scratch my head and ended up cranking the assistant right in the side of the pumpkin. Then Eric kept tickling my stomach and I couldn't control my hands well enough to make him stop. It looked like I couldn't control my limbs (disabled) and it was cracking Eric up and Casey Ann pretty bad. I'm glad I could be their entertainment.

Then before we left, Brynley wanted to try and drive one of Eric's little mini-bikes, so we practiced going back and forth in the garage a few times than took it to the street. She picked it up really quick. This is one of the small ones and is battery operated with a twist throttle and hand-brake. For those who care, check out her left hand on the handle with the proper finger position on the brake. Future duner all the way! Next time, we'll try out the bigger gas powered one and see how she does on it. She was definitely a little cramped on the smaller ones.

We had a good time getting away for a week or so. I'm sure Tosha and Eric were glad to get back to normal after we over took their home. It was fun to see Jared and Janelle and Josh and Robin and mom there too.

PS. Your so hot mom!

The Results are in...

Even though there are a couple days left to vote in the Casey Ann birthday guess caucus, I will finally reveal to you, her eager friends, her exact age.

Drum-roll please....... Casey Ann turned 30 last week. That's right, the big 30. She was definitely glad to have leap year this year to give her "one more day in her twenties".

We celebrated as mentioned earlier at Tucanos. She wasn't too happy that they sang to her though. But I couldn't resist mentioning it to the host.

All in all, I think she had a good birthday, but she'll have to confirm that for you.

Happy Birfday Casey Ann!!

I just wanted my best friend to know that I love her and appreciate all she does for our little family. I hope I can make your birthday the best one for you, this year!! I've committed to change all the poopie diapers for you today, and between two kids in diapers and the way our kids drop the kids off at the pool, that'll be about 10-12 today. I hope you like that. I also commit to watching the kids so you can go out with your mom this afternoon. And I promise to take you to Tucanos tonight for you favorite dinner.

Love your humble hubby,
