Winter Break

As Spring Break approached and we made plans to visit the family in Salt Lake, I envisioned us having a picnic at the park, hiking in the mountains, and walking around downtown. I even packed shorts and flip-flops for everyone and we only brought our light jackets. Boy was I living in fantasy world! It's dumping snow as I write this, but we've still managed to have some fun.
  • The boys have been obsessed with playing Lego Star Wars on the Wii, which normally I'd limit more, but they're playing with their dad, so it also counts as "quality" father-son time.
  • The girls and I have done some shopping. It was so windy as we left the store that Brooklyn's dolly blanket (which I shouldn't have let her bring) blew away. We spent several minutes driving around the parking lot until we found it run over and dirty, but found nonetheless.
  • We went to Thanksgiving Point and the Treehouse Museum, both of which the kids loved. We'll go to Sweets Candy Factory tomorrow. Hooray for chocolate cinnamon bears!
  • My mom and I went to the General Relief Society training at the Tabernacle today. I took Reagan, which made things interesting. I got locked inside the Cry Room on three different occasions and had to knock on the door to get out. Do you think they were sending me a message? Really though, it was an amazing meeting and I was glad to have gone.
  • Thankfully there is an indoor swimming pool that we can go to. Then we can still pretend that it's getting warm and that it really is Spring!

It's About Time!

One reason for my hiatus from blogging is that our computer is in storage while we are building our house and I've been using my in-laws' computer, which I'm still trying to figure out. Anyway, I'm FINALLY posting a picture of Reagan. My friend Kelly took so many cute pictures of both Reagan and Brooklyn. I'd like to say that Reagan was cooperative, but you know how babies are. Brooklyn felt like a little princess, posing for all the pictures. Reagan is at a fun stage--smiling, laughing, and squealing. And Brooklyn is loving the role of big sister, always eager to hold her sister and make her laugh.

I'm Back!

You know how it is with anything...the longer you're away the harder it is to come back?! Well, that's how I've been with our blog, but when I look at our last posting in the summer and the fact that we've never posted anything about Reagan I think it's about time to come back. So....more to come soon!
