Bryson DWTS continued....

Sorry to keep posting these videos of Bryson Dancing With the Stars but it is one of our favorite things. He wants everyone to dance with him now. We finally talked him to being satisfied with just Baylee dancing because we were tired of dancing the entire show. In this video we were able to capture him dancing to a "slow" song. He gets pretty serious.

Happy Easter!!!

Today was a good day! BJ was finally able to leave Brazil and is on his way home. We are so thankful that he is safe and that he will be home in just a few short hours. We, as a family, have had an experience that makes us realize the important things in life. I know I, for one, will never be the same. I know the Lord works in mysterious ways. What happened to BJ in Brazil is a terrible thing but I know good will come of it. It has already helped me to realize how very blessed I am and to help me focus on what is really important. Today being Easter and being able to celebrate life and the Atonement could not have come at a better time. I am so thankful for Jesus Christ and His sacrifice that He made for me. I know He died for me. I know He loves me. I have felt His love for me and my family during this recent trial and I have so much to be thankful for. I have the best kids in the whole world! This morning the weather was horrible. Baylee said, "I guess the Easter Bunny is not coming today...oh well." I asked her if that was OK with her and she said that Easter is not about candy, it's about celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus. I was so proud! Needless, to say, the Easter Bunny came through. He did a little scavenger hunt in the house that lead to baskets full of candy. I've never been more happy to see them have so much candy! Happy Easter!

Thank You Grandma Mary & Papa Dave!!!

The kids got a special package today from their Grandma Mary and Papa Dave. They each got a little bag chalk full of plastic eggs filled with dollars and candy. They were so excited! It was greatly appreciated. Happy Easter!

Bye Bye Weeds!

Last year our neighbor got some terrible crabgrass like weed in his yard and it spread into ours. We tried like heck to kill it but it never went away and it came back with a vengeance this Spring. Before BJ left for Brazil he put some weed killer out on the lawn but it didn't even touch this stuff. Well, with all the stress we have had this week with BJ being stuck in Brazil, I needed a project to tackle to take my frustration out on. After 3 afternoons of hard work we were able to conquer this stubborn weed grass. I saw a neighbor of Ozzy's preschool digging up weeds in his yard so I asked him what was the benefit and he said the only way to get rid of this weed for good was to dig it up. He said the Bermuda grass takes over and it will grow back over the bald spots. So, I got the shovel out and got to work. There are some pretty good bald spots but I have hope the Bermuda will do it job! As you can see below, I had some pretty good help.

Spring Leadoff Classic

This weekend Brayden had his first tournament of the season. The Spring Leadoff Classic is a tournament that teams from all over the metroplex compete. This is the first year that Brayden's team has played in this league. Considering this was all new to us we did very well. We won all our games the first day only to be knocked out the first game of the next day. Brayden was sad that his dad missed his first tournament, (BJ helps coach), so we wanted to get some pictures posted so that BJ could have a look see. We miss you Babe and hope you make it back to us fast!
