April Recap

I have been a bit slow posting pictures of the kids and family. Here are some pictures from the month of April. I can't believe how fast time goes by, does anyone else feel this way too?

We took this right before the new owners drove off with it. Sam was pretty sad to let this Malibu go, but he quickly got over it because Sam's dad bought a brand new one. Now you know what we will be doing all summer.
My sister-in-law Becca. She's at BYU-I. The kids and I sure miss her.
Easter afternoon. Enjoying our Easter egg hunt at grandma Allridge's.
Dean and his aunt Lizzy. Enjoying one of Mike's soccer games.
Sammy's first time flying a kite. He thought it was the coolest thing. Thanks cousin Charly for the fun birthday gift.

Dean loved his new chew toys (the Easter eggs).

Crazy and Exciting Life

It's been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything, so I will give a quick up-date. Dean started walking last week, very exciting and lots of fun. Sam got a job. That is some of the greatest news. 5 months of stress on Sam's part paid off. Sam is also graduating with his MBA on May 4th. 6 years of school seemed like a long time but it has flown by. Last, the most recent news is Sam and I bought a house. Yes, it happened so fast but we felt really good about our decision. Totally crazy, but we fell in love with it and we can't wait to close and begin tearing apart the inside and making it into "our" house. Tons of stuff on our plate over the past few weeks, but we are so excited for all these changes and can't wait to see what else is around the corner.

This was taken about a month ago while we were in AZ visiting.

Sammy's 2!

I can't believe I have a 2 year old. Time goes by so fast. Sammy had a really fun Birthday party thanks to Sam's parents. For a few weeks prior to his birthday he told everyone it was going to be his birthday and he was turning 2. When the day finally came he was so excited he couldn't keep from smiling. It was so cute. He loved the attention and especially his toys. My parents gave him the cutest little Radio Flyer bike. He can ride it as long as we tape his feet to the pedals. His favorite toy from the Alexander's was his dinosaurs. He didn't even want to finish opening any of his other presents. This party was a lot of fun and it is so cool to watch Sammy grow and get smarter. He's starting to talk a lot and is really able to express himself. Being a parent is the best. Happy Birthday Sammy!

Pictures from Sammy's Party

We didn't have any candles, so we improvised.

Sammy insisted everyone wear a birthday hat.
Can you see his top teeth coming in? It explains the drool on his shirt.
Sammy stole some licks of his cake.
Blowing rasberries, his new favorite thing.
A little cheesy.
