April Aggie Football

Now that it is April, Aggie Spring Football has started.  This included many practices, scrimmages and best of all the annual football banquet. And with that here are a bunch of pictures from all of our fun Aggie adventures.

Monroe was a good sport

Elise and Mommy (Also I don't think it was that hot that the lady behind us needed to take off her shoes)
Carter and his bud Nik LOVE pretzels

The final play of the scrimmage game
Monroe's Aggie shirt is too small now, better get her a new one before next season
On the field after the game for autographs from the players
There were tons of people
Elise was asking this player for his autograph and I thought, "Is he a player? He looks quite small." Come to find out he is the kicker, ha!
Carter found his favorite friend from last season Devonte Mays, luckily Devonte remembered him too and Carter couldn't be happier about it.

An EGGciting Easter!

This year was a very egg-citing Easter! We were finally able to share the news that we will be having another baby! That is a hard secret to keep! But all is well, I am 14 weeks and baby is due on October 1st. We are hoping for a boy to even out the house, but we know I love girls! We will find out around my birthday in May for sure. This year the kids had fun going to an Easter Egg Hunt at our favorite grocery store, color Easter eggs outside, got all dolled up for church and even had a visit from the Easter Bunny! Happy Easter Everyone!

Family of 6!! Here we go...
Easter Sunday - I LOVED the girls dresses this year! Thanks Grammy :)
Warm enough to dye eggs outside
Carter got to see the Easter Bunny at the Mall and got his face painted too
Little Bunny Carter
On our way to the Easter Egg Hunt
 I said cheese, show me your teeth and this is what she did.
I love this because the kids don't get candy which don't get me wrong is fine, but it's a nice change from all their candy in their baskets. Here they got a bunny glow ring, a toothbrush, an apple, a string cheese, popcorn ball and chocolate milk.

 All ready to color Easter Eggs in their new Easter aprons!

 Our messy Carter just couldn't help himself and got dye all over his hands
 Ta Da! Elise was so happy we did them outside this year

 Poppa teaching Monroe how to dye her egg
 Nice blue one Elise!

 Easter Baskets
 Finding their baskets Sunday morning

 Monroe was excited for her candy
All ready for Easter Sunday

This is how most photo shoots are going these days. It's so hard to get Monroe to look at the camera

Luck of the Irish

We had another fun St. Patrick's Day this year. The annual party in Idaho was a blast! The kids had fun eating green food, having a scavenger hunt, playing outside and even having a dance party. Good times! We also went to the movies and had a mini late birthday party for Daniel. Enjoy lots of fun and festive photos.
