We need a pitcher...not a window breaker!!!

Yep...Brayden thinks he's a pitcher. We have a loveseat directly in front of the window and he was practicing pitching by throwing it at the couch...obviously he needs to practice a bit more!

Easter Sunday March 23, 2008

Somehow Oz got ALL the eggs with the money!?!

That sneaky bunny!

Princess Baylee


The Oz



What a day! Ozzy was up in the night with with an awful cough. He wanted his daddy so I gladly gave up my spot in the bed and went to sleep in the bed in the baby's room. Needless, to say BJ was up with Ozzy until 3:00 a.m. That's what he gets for being the favorite! No, he really stepped up and even steamed up the bathroom to clear Oz up and make it easier for him to breathe. I was really impressed!
We had the Easter egg hunt this morning and I arranged for Ozzy to find all the eggs with money in them and Brayden and Baylee didn't find any. It was hilarious because it's the money the older kids want and no so much the candy. Needless to say, as you can see by the picture, they were not happy. Fortunately, Oz was nice enough to split it evenly. Then it was time to get ready for church. Ozzy didn't make it to church obviously, but he still wanted to wear his shirt and tie. Baylee absolutely loves her dress. We went shopping last week and she didn't like anything I liked and I didn't like anything she liked. Luckily, we finally agreed. If this is a taste of what is to come...please help me!! Luckily, I only have one girl.
Brayden gave a talk in Primary today on Jesus Christ being our Saviour. It was nice to be able to teach them and have them learn about our amazing Brother and be able to share it with the other kids in Primary on a day when we are celebrating Him. The candy and eggs are always fun but I'm thankful for this time of year when we can reflect on the Atonement and what a blessing it is to have it in our lives. Happy Easter everyone!

Baylee's Baptism February 2, 2008

Baylee was baptized on February 2nd. She was able to share her special day with her good friend Karlee. Her dad baptized her and both sets of Grandparents and her Aunt Debbie came all the way from Utah to be with her on her special day. BJ's Uncle Ben and Uncle Hank were able to attend as were a few of our friends. We had a great time with all our family in town. We are so proud of Baylee and her decision and we hope she continues to make good decisions in her life.

What are we up to lately?

Well, Brayden is in the 3rd grade and loves anything to do with sports. He is currently in basketball, baseball, and arena football. Baylee is in 2nd grade and is finally turning into my girly girl. She still loves sports and is currently playing softball and as her dad always said, she does have a natural talent for the sport. Ozzy is 3 and loves preschool. He is also a sports nut and is currently playing soccer and T-ball. As you can see, I pretty much live in the van every evening driving the kids from one practice to another and our weekends are full of games. We love it! Luckily the baby likes the car. That brings is to Bryson aka "Brycee Pooh". He is already 8 months old and is a very happy easy going baby. Thank goodness! He gets plenty of kisses and loves from us all. BJ is enjoying working from home...I wish I could say the same...(just kidding, hon!) I really do like having him home. It's nice to run an errand or two and not have to load up the troops. Anyway, I hope you all will enjoy our blog and check back often. I'll try to keep it updated with new pictures to let you all know how we are doing. Hope to see you all soon!
