The girls matching dresses

Micah felt a little left out, so we took apicture of his also!

About a week ago I made these dressed for my girls. I think they turned out pretty cute. The hard part was getting Brooke to pose for the picture! Megan always wants matching clothes, but it is really hard to find them when they are so far apart, so she was really excited when I showed her the matching dresses. It was kind of fun!

The Birthday Girl!

I can't believe my little girl just turned 7! It is unbelievable to me...because it makes me feel old! We celebrated her birthday over 2 days. She had her friend birthday party on the 16th and her family birthday party on the 17th. We had a lot of fun...and I think she enjoyed it all! Although I think I could tame it down a little. I have a tendency of over doing birthdays, which drives Boyd crazy! I just really want to make good memories for my kids!

The other day while we were in Walmart, I noticed that they were having a coloring contest. So I grabbed a color page and took it home to Megan. She colored it all pretty and we took it back. Well, on Friday we got a call that Megan was the grand prize winner! She was so excited! I was so proud of her, she is such a good little artist! We took her in to claim her prize and it was an enormous Valentines bear! They got her picture with it...she was so proud. She loves this human sized bear so much...she named it Berrie! Now we just have to figure out what we are going to do with this huge bear! :)

We had a great valentines day! Boyd suprised me and took me to Idaho Falls, we ate at Johnny Carinos and then went and showed the kids where Boyd asked me to marry him at the Idaho Falls temple. It was very romantic!! I had a lot of fun. We have a tradition every Valentines day that I leave a valentine for the kids on the kitchen table, and they wake up and get to see what they got. Boyd got almond roca, the kids got a little box of chocolates and they each got a little set of dishes in their favorite character, and Boyd got me flowers and a candle. We had Boyd's sister's family over for breakfast burritos and got to share some fun laughs with them. Over all it was a great day!

Just call me an idiot!!

You know how my camera has been "broke". I have been going crazy without it, so the other day I begged Boyd to look at it. Well, I guess all it needed was new batteries. I am such a dork. We use rechargeable batteries, and the ones I had been using I guess have lost their charge. I actually suspected that, so I tried other batteries (from the dollar store...don't trust them) and they didn't work. I guess I need to stop being such a cheap skate and buy Duracell! So now I have to go buy new rechargeable batteries and we will be back in business!! Hooray!!!

New Job position...Horray!!!

Boyd has been looking for a better job for a couple of months now. He was hoping for an up in salary and would like to get his masters. Well on Friday, AMS which is the company he is currently with, fired their lead engineer and offered Boyd the position! We couldn't turn down the offer. It is a significant pay increase, they are going to pay for his masters, and are paying for his cell phone. (Which is a big deal because we are old fashioned and haven't ever gotten cell phones.) So anyway, we are thrilled to say the least. I am so proud of Boyd, he is a great engineer and works really hard for AMS. Good job honey!!!
