April

Another month of fun and madness and we love it!  We have had a month of Easter fun, a birthday, and a Cardinals game.  The weather has finally started to get better, so we have gotten outside every now and again.

We started the month with a visit to the Wernle's farm to check out the piglets.  We also decorated cookies and eggs.  Ethan and Eve got to spend some time with their friends Paige and Emma.

Easter we were able to go down to grandma and grandpa's house.  The easter bunny found us down there and then we had an Easter egg hunt.  I'm a little sad to day that Whitney told us she is too old to hunt for eggs:( so she got to hide them for the little ones instead.  We also went to downtown Nashville and walked around and ate at the Hard Rock Cafe(totally gross food and not worth the money)

Ethan had a birthday.  I can't believe he is 4 years old!  He loves angry birds, so I made him an angry bird cake.  He counted down his birthday all month and that's alot considering his birthday was on the 26th.  He got some toy story stuff and some remote control cars and a ninja turtle.

Thanks to my sis in law Gina, Thom and I were able to go to the Cardinals game.  I love going to games!  I love everything about it, the atmosphere, the food, and watching the players live.  We had so much fun!  I loved being able to spend time with just Thom.  So grateful my kids have their aunt Gina to take care of them and play with them.  While Thom and I have alone time.

 Eve wouldn't touch the piglets.  She's kind of afraid of animals.
 Ethan loved holding the piglet, so cute
 Ethan was a wild driver when he drove this.  Eve barely hung on! ha ha



 She loves her princess crown

 These two wanted to blow bubbles 24/7.  They loved it.
 This is Eve's first hunt that she's been able to actually walk around and find the eggs

March

March always seems to be a fun month for me.  Last year I saw Bon Jovi and went to Disney World.  This year was a little more tame, but I had the most awesome 40th birthday.  I also got to spend time with friends during Whitney's spring break.  We also bought a new vehicle!

For my bday, Thom let me sleep in, so he got up with the kids.  Then we went shopping and I got some jewelry,sees candy and a new coach purse.  For dinner, we went to one of my favorite places Peel and then he really surprised me with a party with all my friends.  He did have help from a couple of my friends Leah and Camille.  My in-laws surprised me with flowers and a balloon, so that was cool.  It was one of my best birthdays ever!

Whit has spring break and the weather was too cold to really do anything.  So we went to the mall one day and the that friday was actually a really nice day, so we went to the zoo with some friends.

Then the end of the month we decided we needed a bigger car, so we bought a brand new Chrysler town & Country.  We got a really good deal on it and it was in our price range and monthly payments.  We love it.   The kids love it too.
What a great month!
 So blessed with such great friends:)


 It really was a beautiful day to go to the zoo
 Oh yeah Ethan go glasses too.

 Eve loved the hippos
Love this van! Had all the bells and whistles we wanted and the color is what we liked too.

January/February 2014

I must say January was the worst month for my family.  Lots of sickness and we usually don't get sick.  There was alot of snow and Whitney missed a bunch of days.  She had 3 weeks of Christmas vacation.  That's how bad it was.  Whit also played community basketball for 5th grade.  Genevieve had her 18 month check up.  She's coming along right around the curve of the growth chart.   She is growing up so fast.  I know I say that all the time but it's true.
February was a little better.  The kids still had a week where they were sick.  I even got sick and I hardly ever get sick.  Whitney got to participate the the pinewood derby with our cub scout group.  She didn't win, but I think she had the best car:)  Valentine's day wasn't anything special.  We took the kids out to dinner to Texas Roadhouse and gave them some candy.  Thom actually bought me some really nice earring.
Thom has started traveling for his job this month.  He got a promotion, so with that came some traveling, but it's not so bad.

Christmas 2013

Finally getting around to posting Christmas.  We stayed around home for the holidays.  The kids really liked their presents.  We loved the holidays, but I was ready for things to get back on schedule:)

The first part of December 2013

The first 2 weeks of December are pretty hectic every year with Christmas parties and programs.  I also finished up Christmas shopping.  I have not been diligent in the picture taking department and when I sit down to blog I wish that I had taken more pictures.  Anyway we had our ward Christmas  party and our Relief Society one and they were great.  Whitney had her piano recital and she did very well.  Ethan had his preschool Christmas program and he was the wise man.  Ethan and Genevieve experienced their first snowman.  We had a family night where we went to the town square and saw Santa and then watched Frozen.  We really enjoy the holidays even if they do get hectic:)
 So proud of her....
 Eve wasn't afraid of Santa
Went to a friend's house so the kids could make gingerbread houses.  They has so much fun.

 They really loved building a snowman

November

I have to be honest I did not take one picture on Thanksgiving.  I know I'm a terrible person.  I will just say we had a wonderful time.  We love watching the Macy's parade and Elf to kick off Christmas.  Whitney also had her 5th grade band and choir concert.  We also started a  new tradition with the Elf on the Shelf on Dec. 1st right after Thanksgiving.  the kids have had fun finding the elf and her antics.
 Whit plays the clairnet
They sang some pretty cool Glee version songs.
