March Madness

Holy Cow!  March was a crazy month.  But it's been so fun to watch our backyard bloom and get green and beautiful again.  Here are some fun pictures I took throughout the month.

Women's Conference

Mom and I were able to snag some tickets to Women's Conference thanks to Linda Reeves.  It was so fun to be able to take Camryn and Brooklyn.  They are such precious girls.  They loved being there.

Mom's in the Morning Gone Wild

Moms in the morning: An annual event at Legacy where Mom's come early to school and eat muffins with their kids while reading books.  OR- a time to mess around with your seesta :)  Tammy called me as she was pulling in to see if I had a sweatshirt she could borrow to cover her tank top.  I only had the one I was wearing and I offered it to her and decided I could wrap Nic's pants around my shoulders.  Here is the end result.  HAHA!  We laughed until we cried.  There wasn't a whole lot of reading going on that morning :)

With Easter right around the corner, we figured it would be an appropriate time for these cuties to perform "Gethsemane" at church.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  You know that prickly feeling on your arms when you witness a miracle.  I'm pretty sure that's how the whole congregation felt.  It was beautiful with B on the piano, Cam on the violin, and little Kendyl at the microphone singing.  They weren't the least bit nervous and made 0 mistakes.  Unbelievable.  My heart melted and I was so overcome with love for these 3 girls.  Heavenly Father knew EXACTLY who I needed to be my children and I got that PLUS some.  I thank him daily for the opportunity to be their mother. I posted their practice run on Youtube.

Bridal Shower for Yo!

It was the most beautiful day for an outdoor bridal shower!  Everyone gave her something for her purse, and then another present.  It was a lot of fun.  I think we might have scared her a couple of times :)

Nixon Graham

This boy still hugs me when he wakes up and when he goes to bed.  He adores his family and he's learning to be a good friend too, although he's still super shy.  He's so little but he's got a big heart and a great brain.  Check him out making a cheese sandwich all by himself :)  He was so proud.

Mom's organ recital

My mom is the most talented musician I've ever known.  No joke.  Why couldn't I get some of that talent!  Luckily, my girls did.  Phew.  We took the kids and went to her organ recital and her piece was about a million times harder than everyone elses that performed.  She takes lessons at the U and practices for HOURS every day.  Gotta hand it to her....she's driven!

Aladdin Kids

These girls have spent every Tuesday afternoon (3-5:00) since September rehearsing for this play!  They have absolutely loved it.  Brooklyn is a townsperson and Cam is a Junior djin.  They put on the most fabulous play and they had so much support from their relatives.  Thanks Ms. Jules!  These girls are already excited about next years' play.

3rd grade aquarium Field trip

Nixon and I chaperoned the aquarium field trip.  The girls were so good about including him.  Nixon loved the Sharks.  The twins were so pumped about this and dreaded it ending.  I love being able to do these things with my kids and I know it means a lot to them.  Just wish Kendyl could have come.
