Popcorn's popping. . .

. . .on whatever kind of tree we have. And we love it. When the wind blows the kids say that it is snowing because all the petals are starting to fall off. Oh spring, stay forever. . .

Two sets of Twins

Brett and his brother Craig look a ton a like. When we were first married and would spend time with Craig and his family, I often had to wait until the man I "thought" was my husband turned around to see if it was really Brett (I couldn't even tell the difference in their voices). Today it is easier for me to tell the difference between them, but they still look a lot alike.

Craig has a son, Bryant, who is 10 months older than Tanner. I think they look more alike than Brett and Craig. Somehow these pictures don't portray any of them looking alike, but they are cute nonetheless. Maybe one of these days we will get a picture of them that will show how much they truly are similar.

Ridin' on Two Wheels

Natalie has moved on from the world of training wheels. She now rides a "two wheeler" (as she likes to tell people. The rest of us would call it a bike.)
She was very determined to learn how to ride a bike and for a couple of weeks you could see her riding down the street, hitting cars and running into curbs.
Luckily for her knees she has learned how to steer and use her brakes.
Bailey on the other hand has digressed. She was getting frustrated that she couldn't keep up with Natalie on her bike with training wheels, so decided to go back to the tricycle. I don't think it will be too long before she is riding a bike herself though. There is a lot of competition between Bailey and Natalie.
Tanner loves to putt around in this car when the others are riding bikes. And more often than not there is a kid on top catching a ride.

Oh Bailey. . .

I was just putting lotion on Hunter when Bailey came into the room and asked if she could have some. I let her put some on her legs. She then left the room to brag to the other kids. She said, "Ha, ha, I got to put ranch on my legs." Maybe we use ranch salad dressing a little too much in this house!

Beautiful Girl's

Aren't they gorgeous? I may be a little bias being that they are my sisters. I got to help them get ready for Mormal (A formal dance put on for the priests and laurels in the surrounding stakes). It is so fun for me to be able to hang out with them and help them get ready and see the complete awkwardness of their dates picking them up (so glad not to be living those days anymore).
Thanks for letting me be a part of the fun girls!

Fun in the Sun

Have I ever told you how much I enjoy living in Southern California? I LOVE it. Not just a little. A lot. And mostly because while a lot of the country is still experiencing winter weather, we are doing things like this:
Fearless Natalie

Bailey, Tanner and Natalie (I guess the air still isn't THAT warm, but warm enough)

Bailey and Tanner taking notes on Natalie's jump. . .

. . .and Tanner trying to follow suit. No fear of the water for this boy.

Our fish Spencer

He loves to swim under water these days (but as of yet can't do it without pinching his nose)




And finally Hunter hanging out with Mom. Not quite a smile, but happy for sure. We love being outside!

Happy 59th Birthday Grandpa Higham

I know this pictures is blurry, but I love how you can see that Morgan is warming her hands over the candles.
Look at that concentration! It paid off because he was able to blow out all 59 candles with one blow. Happy Birthday Dad!
