Spring Fever

The boys were in "desperate" need of a golf trip down to ST. George so we decided to make it a mini vacation and go down to Vegas for a couple of days and then go to ST. George and stay in the condo with the Stevens. We had a great time and it was so nice to have some sunshine. Funny how sixty degrees in Feb. makes me want to wear a tank top and flip flops! I forgot how big all the hotels are on the literally took us 7 hours to eat breakfast and walk through three hotels. We went to the shark reef at Mandalay Bay, saw the tiger exhibit at MGM, went to M&M world, and went to Excalibur and played games and won a lot of stuffed animals. Londyn did great she just slept and ate every two hours!

In St. George the boys golfed 27 holes! JR claims it was the best work day ever(they golfed from 8:00-5:00). Sharon and I relaxed in the warm sun and took the kids swimming. Now if it would just warm up here...


We were watching the Jazz game the other night and Deron Williams was shooting free throws and Lauren asked, "Dad, is that Bruce Willis?"

On Friday the 13th I made an appointment for JR and me to get a couples massage. This was the first time JR had ever had a massage and he LOVED it! Our appointment was at 9:00 pm which was a first for me, I normally schedule the appointment for the morning and now I know why. I pretty much slept the entire time! JR claims I was snoring but I swear I was just "resting my eyes." :) Hey, I was tired I have a sick newborn at home!

On Saturday the 14th we decided we were going to take Lauren to build-a-bear. Apparently everyone else thought that was a good idea too. We were there for two hours! It was worth it though, she had so much fun. Of course everything she picked was pink, being that is her favorite color. She also got to name her bear and she named it Sally. I am sure she got this from Gracie since that is the name of Gracie's cat.

Later that night we got take out from a yummy Chinese food restaurant and had a movie night. We always let Lauren chose the movie for movie night and we always end up watching Kung Fu Panda or Madagascar. We literally have seen both these movies over 100 times, but Madagscar it was. About ten minutes into it Lauren changed her mind and decided she wanted to watch Madagascar 2...Allelujiah! We have only seen this one once. It didn't matter anyway because JR and I both fell asleep (remember we have a sick newborn.)

Let It Snow!!!

Lauren loves the snow. So of course when it snowed the other day she was so excited! We put on her snow clothes and she went and played for about an hour while I shoveled the driveway. (Yes, there is a first time for everything, maybe this summer I will even mow the lawn, lol.) Lauren loves to make snow angels, build snow castles, sled, and eat the snow. I have told her how disgusting this is but she assures me she is "just looking and holding it." I am glad someone appreciates the snow because I am ready for some sun and warm weather!

1 Month Old

Londyn spent her one month birthday being sick, poor girl! She has the congested cough, runny nose, and watery eyes. We've been going through lots of slaine drops and she has been sleeping in her car seat and had the humidifier running for the past three nights. It is hard to believe my baby girl is a month old already! Londyn is starting to smile and coo and beginning to show her personality. She is such a calm baby and is my little cuddle bug. I got her newborn pictures taken a couple of weeks ago, we were there for three hours but got some great shots.

So I have FINALLY entered the blogging world!!! Annie convinced me that this was a great way to document memories with friends and family. Thanks Annie for your help today even though Garrett fell down the stairs and Lauren ate a half bag of cheetos for lunch:) (Is that what blogging leads to parent neglect?)
