black thumb

I know this may seem like a silly blog post but I am so excited. I have had these roses for over a year and they started blooming earlier this month and when I looked out the door this morning I noticed that I had roses and they are beautiful!!!! I also got a really pretty plant for Easter and it is still alive and doing well. Maybe I do not have a black thumb any more.

We went to the Phoenix Zoo the other day. Things sure have changed in the six years sense I have been there. They have a couple of different areas where you can feel what different animals feel like. We all had a great time.

bunnies, eggs, & chicks

This is the 2nd time that my pictures have done this. For some reason I cannot get them to move. These are pictures of the kids coloring eggs. Douglas kept picking up the already colored eggs and trying to stick them into the purple water. Luckily we stopped him before he accomplished his goal. I think they cracked half of the eggs because they would just drop them into the water instead of putting them in gently. At least they had fun which is what really matters.
I love this time of year because it makes me stop and think about everything that our Savior did for me. I hope that everyone has a great Easter Sunday.

This is what we got in the mail yesterday. We have 27! YES you read right 27 baby chicks. They are soooooo cute. The box in the first picture is what they were all crammed into. The boys love to stand and look at them. Clint will pet them if someone is holding one and Douglas says "they eat me" and backs away from whoever is holding one. I already have my favorite and am trying to come up with a name for it if you have any suggestions let me know.

picture time

These are only some of the professioanl pictures that I had taken of the boys this weekend. I love this place. They take like almost 100 different pictures and you get to choose which ones you want and you get to leave with them the same day!!!

sleep, who needs sleep

Lately I have not been making the boys lay down for a nap because it seems like we are up until 10pm or later. So this is what happens when they have had a busy two days and do not get a nap. I want to add that Douglas only ate part of his dinner and Clint didn't finish drawing the picture he was working on.

Good News

I am pleased to announce that starting Sunday, April 5th Tyrone no longer has to work straight graveyards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He starts his rotating schedule again. But because they do not enough people on every crew they have to sign up for overtime (which is ok with me). I have been waiting for this day for a few months now and it has finally happened.

P.S. To those of you who thought that I was going to announce that I was having another baby sorry to disappoint you.
