March 25- 31

March 31, 2010
After months and years of hard work and discipline, this final capstone project represents the finishing line of Lyndon's MBA! We both sacrificed and even cried a few tears, but he did it. I'm so proud of my man!
March 30, 2010
A super fun pre-kindergarten fieldtrip to the local fire station with JJ. We both loved it and learned a lot. I especially loved when the fire figther dressed in his gear and played with the kids so they would learn not to be afraid of them in the case of a fire!

Family Home Evening treat at good old MacDonalds! Nothing like humungo ice cream cones!

We were so blessed to witness Caleb Northcott's baptism and photograph the event. Such an amazing family. I hope we stay friends for a long, long time!

Lately this is our toothpaste of choice. We change our brand whenever there is a sale! Good thing we aren't toothpaste snobs.
March 25, 2010
My absolute favorite aisle to browse through in ANY store. The smell of new books just calls to me, begging to me to escape through them. There is nothing quite like reading a good book.

I have a genius hubby who can take apart a VCR (yes, we still have one) and fix it by removing not one, but THREE Easter magnets from the inside. I wonder how those ended up in there??

March 23, 2010
That must have been SOME DREAM, JJ!

March 22, 2010
The Northcott family are some of our newest and best friends. They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the out. Today we had a blast making and eating crepes filled with homemade jams and whipped cream! YUM!

March 21, 2010
It warms my heart to see my girls getting along so well. They love to laugh together. I look forward to seeing their relationship grow, deepen, and evolve!

March 20, 2010
New Moon Madness! I loved our New Moon movie night. We ate good food, enjoyed good company, and watched a good movie! Thanks Pam T, Sara N, Karla C. Valerie W., Sarah K., and Ailyn C!

March 19, 2010
My new favorite creation - a chicken wire jewelry frame! Now my necklaces and watch bands have a home.

March 18, 2010
JJ has found a new favorite dress to But even princesses get pooped out!

March 17, 2010
I am just so lucky to have the four of you little leprechauns! I love you!

March 16, 2010
Hawt. That's all I can say.

March 15, 2010
TJ and her friends like to hang out during recess and after lunch time, acting things out and singing songs. Do I see a drama major in our future??

March 14, 2010
Ward Potluck time! There was a great turn out for this potluck dinner. We brought pizza, which went EXTREMELY well (and fast) but no fear - there was more than enough delicious dishes for everyone.

March 13, 2010
The weather warmed up just enough for the kiddos to dig some forts in the snow. I can feel it - Spring is on it's way!

March 12, 2010
I finally did it! I managed to get a newborn to sleep deeply enough to try some fun poses. He was such a little doll, and really made my entire day!

March 1-11

March 11, 2010
Who knew a field trip to the Science Center to learn more about magnets could be SO interesting! I loved volunteering with B's class and learning right along with the kids!

March 10, 2010
The girls showed up for Achievement Days Activities and no leaders were there - so Lyndon took them on an impromptu trip to Dairyqueen for some Blizzardy goodness! Thank goodness for daddies.

March 9, 2010
Boredom + Photoshop = Na'vi me!

March 8, 2010
As part of our Family Home Evening rotation, we are including accomplishing goals from the Faith in God workbook that the girls are working through in Primary. We all learned a lot together from these goals and I look forward to learning even more!

March 7, 2010
Updating our family calendar. This is like a lifeline in our house. If it's not on the probably won't happen!

March 6, 2010
Finally the weather has been nice enough to enjoy some outdoor fun. In this case? Skating!

March 5, 2010
We had a blast together with friends to celebrate the birthday of my friend, Karla! We had a wonderful meal at Moxies, then visited for hours afterward at their home. Nothing beats having GREAT friends!

March 4, 2010
Each time we go grocery shopping, I spend a few minutes washing and chopping veggies to have handy in the fridge. It makes snacking on healthier items that much easier.

March 3, 2010
Let the Spring cleaning begin! I spent a few moments organizing our spice cupboard. I love having everything organized and easy to find.

March 2, 2010
Cute 3 year old. On sale now - aisle 3!

March 1, 2010
TJ enjoyed a fun (and thankfully warm) outdoor field trip to Last Mountain House in Saskatchewan. She learned a lot about early settlers and how they survived in the Canadian winters!

Feb 21 - 28, 2010

Feb 28, 2010
The final day of the 2010 Winter Olympics. I am thrilled to say I was alive when Canada broke the record for the most gold medals won in an Olympic games - 14!!! The highlight had to be Team Canada winning over Team USA in the men's hockey game. It went into overtime and Sydney Crosby scored the winning goal. It was heartwarming to see how Canadians all pulled together to show our national pride and unity. It was an amazing games!

Feb 27, 2010
Our new friends invited us over to show them how to make sushi! We aren't sushi chefs, but we had taken a class from one and we shared what we did know with Sarah and Ben. It was SO yummy and the company was fantastic. I can't wait to get together again!

This is JJ's "Vampire" face. She's going through a  vampire phase right now. No worries, though - she promises she won't eat family members. She'll stick to turtle blood. Phew!

Feb 25, 2010
I love our kids' school. The teachers are so involved with the kids AND they keep the parents involved. They offer so many fun opportunities for families to be TOGETHER and have fun. This is one good example. It was "Family Fun Night" and the kids (and us) we able to participate in a variety of fun games, enter draws, and enjoy some treats. I love days like this!

Feb 24, 2010
JJ has no hips. I mean NONE. Add to that, the fact that she outgrows her pants as quickly as we get her into them. It's a perfect recipe for plumber's crack.

Feb. 23, 2010
I laughed out loud when JJ asked me to pull her short hair into a pony tail. Then she grabs my glasses, slips them on, and says "I'm the girl from Meatballs!!". I knew she meant "Sam Sparks". Hilarious little munchkin.

Blaine has found himself a gorgeous, smart, sweet woman to be his companion. I haven't met her, but just from our brief correspondence over email she seems as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. This is the photo they have chosen to include on their invites, and they asked me to edit and process it a bit. I can't wait to meet Zhang Na and to be there to support them as they take their marriage vows in July!

Feb. 21, 2010
B has been getting into the reading groove lately! Every night she spends half an hour cuddled up with her bear, delving into a good book. She is learning by leaps and bounds at the same time. I'm so proud of her!
