Cousin Sleep Over

Tonight David and Abby are spending the night.  We met Liz halfway for lunch and pick up the kids were so excited and couldn't wait to start the fun!  This afternoon they have played a variety of games downstairs.  They also went for a treasure hunt in the snow... i would hide small toy and they would search for it.  A big hit if
i do say so myself!  tonight pizza dinner, redbox, popcorn and hot cocoa.  for the finale all the kids get to sleep together on Harry and Carsons bunk beds, they are so excited!  i will post more pics through out the night.

Dallin is getting bigger and is wanting to be entertained more and more.  So it was time to bring out the next round a fun toys.  He loves it and has no problem me letting him chill there for a few minutes.  I love the self entertainment phase.  :)

Valentine's Day

Today has been so fun.  with the help of Sherrie I decorated the house with hearts and "XOXO"  I love it!  This morning i made the kids a heart shaped breakfast - eggs, hashbrowns and sausage, all in the shape of a heart.  after the kids went to school I invited a few of my friends over for a hot chocolate and sweets party.  I made 2 different types of hot cocoa and some cute red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a cute chocolate design on top. A few of the ladies brought other desserts like cookies, brownies and other flavors of cocoa. it was a blast!  tonight all of the kids are coming to my house for some fun with the sitters while we head over to Sherrie's for a yummy steak dinner.  can't wait!   HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!

Green smoothie breakfast

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought... why not!  So this morning we started off with some greens.  Emma and Harry loved it, with no hesitation about the color.  Carson was a little nervous about the green part, but ended up trying it anyway.  it was way good, fairly filling and nothing but good for! "Skinny" here i come!

Emma's Organization Skills

we went to the library yesterday and immediately after coming home Emma put her books away and labeled their spots.  On the right it says "chapter books" and on the left it says "pikcher books".  I love her, she is a mini me.  :)

Another Little Sickie

After finding out that Dallin has RSV we started hearing Harry cough pretty hard and thought... uhh ohh, we better check this out.  We visited the doctor and found that he also has RSV.  So both boys are on antibiotics and medicated breathing treatments (which is what Harry is holding in the picture).  Dallin still has to go into the hospital twice a day to have a "bronchial suction" - which is something that Harry does not have to do.  They are both doing very well and regardless of how they feel are so nice and have not been grumpy.  We are grateful for their wonderful pediatrician and for the great respiratory therapist that treat Dallin everyday - they are all top rate!
