We went to an Easter egg hunt and met the Easter bunny on Saturday:

Still working on getting the girls room finished. So this little guy is still in a Moses basket on the side of my bed. He doesn’t fit so well any more….

Annual Passover dinner. We had lots of kids joining us this year and I was pretty impressed with my set up. In fact, I cut 10 minutes off the ceremony!! Just by having everything ready to go on the plates so there was no passing/pouring during it:

Liam comes to work with me. Here he is hanging out at the office:

March

Bill’s youngest brother, Michael, got married at the beginning of March. Here is Liam ready to go:

It was fun to see lots of family. And we sat through lots of pictures. I really hope we get a copy of some of those pictures someday.

We came home from the temple and Abby really wanted to change into her pajamas, but I told her no because we still needed to go to the reception – and family pictures were being taken before the reception.

But I put her pajamas in my bag and promised her if she’d stay in her dress, she could change into them after all the pictures were over.

So in the middle of the reception, after leaving to feed Liam, I came back to find this:

That girl loves to be in pajamas!

 

PTDSD: Post-traumatic daylight savings disorder:

_20140313_114709

Anyone else experiencing that at your house?

 

And some happier pictures of Abby because she really is generally happy when daylight savings time isn’t throwing her off.

 

Here she is at the zoo:

When you have two older sisters, you have a lot of pink things:

We went to an ice castle in Midway. It was so much fun!

The kids climbed through all the tunnels:

And got to meet Princesses Anna and Elsa.

Liam is getting bigger:

This child gets into more messes! I was running around trying to get a few chores done before picking Sandy up from half-day kindergarten and Abby decided to take a bath in the dish water. The picture doesn’t capture the water pouring onto the floor:

I do love her. Especially when she’s sleeping:

I was really ambitious one day and did a science experience with the kids, we made elephant toothpaste:

Of course, about the time the stuff started to bubble I had to go feed Liam. I came back to this:

December, Part 1

We started the month by getting photos for Christmas cards. Later than we expected, but then Liam arrived later than expected. Here are some photos we took of the kids, although not the one on the actual Christmas card, you’ll have to wait to see that one.

December also brought snow – and freezing temperatures:

_20131203_131110

 

Abby loves to wear her pajamas! The first thing she does when we get home – even if it is noon, is change into her pajamas. But it has been too cold to wear just pajamas, so she’s started wearing pajamas under her clothes. Silly girl!

_20131204_081659

Isn’t he cute?

_20131206_125022 

Liam has pectal excavatum, which means that there is a depression in his rib cage. His pediatrician said it looks like a mild case and she thought it might be come less noticeable as he grows.

Here’s a video. You can see it as he breathes in and out – it’s really noticeable when he has hiccups!!

We went to the grand opening of the Sugarhouse Trolley. They had food and giveaways at the various stops.

_20131207_124219

 

We also went to Scheels in Sandy. It’s a store, I’d never been, but it turns out they have a ferris wheel in the middle of the store:

_20131207_150958

They also have a cool aquarium. I’m adding this to my list of rainy/snowy day activities!

Santa was wandering around the store, and we stopped to say hi and snap pictures:

_20131207_153416

The girls drew pictures. Sandy drew this beautiful picture of her and Abby visiting the ocean:

Sandy'sPic

 

And Abby drew this picture of her pet shark biting Sandy:Abby'sPic

Abby loves her brother. In a “hug him, and squeeze him and LOVE him” sort of way, but we’re working on that.
