Fun at the Aquarium!

Wednesday night My sister-in-law and I took our girls to the Aquarium. It was soooo fun!!! Kaitlyn was completely enthralled with everything she saw, and I was pretty fascinated too.

This picture does NOT show just how cool these Jelly fish were.  The way they glowed was awesome!

This was my favorite fish

Kaitlyn's favorite fish...Nemo of course!

You were allowed to touch these bad boys...she was too scared....I don't blame her, I was too scared too!

She did like touching the star fish though

The Penguins were SWEET!  Way better than the ones at the zoo.

Cute Cousins!  Camryn & Kaitlyn

More Cute Cousins!  Hailey & McKenzie
(They weren't as excited as the other two...)

Easter Dresses

A while ago I started working on some Easter dresses for the girls. I’ve been sewing quite a bit over the last few years, but this was my first attempt at making clothes. It was a lot of fun and I think they turned out pretty cute!

Hard Days Night

So my poor husband got home from WORK last night at 2:30am!!! (its not like he has a job with shift-work, he's usually home by 6 or 6:30 - craziness!) He works so hard for us. Brian wants to be successful and excel in what he does. But most importantly, he wants to provide for our family and make sure I get to stay home and raise our kids. So this is a shout-out to the best hubby ever and us three silly girls want to say THANKS SO MUCH for all you do for our family and WE LOVE YOU!

Easter Celebrations

 Easter was wonderful!  This was Hailey's first, and she had lots of fun playing with eggs and spreading jelly beans all over the carpet!  Kaitlyn was so excited to see if the Easter Bunny had come and was such a crack-up looking for her basket.  

After finding our baskets and eggs I tried to explain to Kaitlyn the true meaning of Easter and how we needed to make sure we remembered Jesus that day. She said "okay" and then quickly ran off to eat candy and play with her new Belle doll and look at her movie....I guess and need to talk about the true meaning of Easter BEFORE bunny stuff next year

Even Mom and Dad got a basket this year! I made Brian go search for it....tee hee :)

Saturday we spent the day at Grandma & Grandpa's house watching Conference, decorating eggs, and having an Easter Egg Hunt!

Jenney & Ryker
The Tenney's have a HUGE backyard, so the kids were ready to hunt equipped with big baskets and egg-grabbers!

We started our Easter Celebrations last Friday by getting together with some friends to decorate some Spring Cookies!
Brycson, Kaitlyn, Ellery, & Porter are ready for their cookies!

Last night I waited 2 hours in line to get Sean Hannity's signature on his new book.  I was sooooo hoping to be able be apart of the audience when he taped his TV show before the signing, but we just missed the cut-off when we got there. :( 
It was still way fun and worth the wait.  When my mom and I got up to Hannity he asked me how old I was (I knew he was totally thinking, oh look at this teenager who cares about politics and the county).  The conversation went like this:
SH: So how old are you?
ME: I'm actually 27
SH: 27!!!!!!! (a look of exasperation on his face)
ME: yep, I even have two kids
SH: two kids, well that's great
MY MOM: and I'm her mom (reaching for a handshake)
SH: You're a grandma?!?!
MY MOM: yep
SH: wow.  Thanks for coming guys

He was super nice!  And we were able to catch him off guard which is kinda fun. :)
While waiting downstairs for the signing a bunch of Utah's political leaders showed up.  Senator Hatch came and shook all our hands.  He's definitely not my favorite, but still a senator so my mom snuck a pic with him.
 I'm a BIG fan of Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, so I stole a picture with him.  He's pretty funny and he's involved with the lawsuit against the Health care package, so woohoo
We were most excited about seeing Congressman Jason Chaffetz.  He was swarmed with people so we didn't get pictures with him.
  The highlight was still Sean Hannity.  The 2 hour wait was totally worth the 8 seconds of conversation and a handshake!
