Way too much to catch up on!

Life has been consumed lately with all the details with starting up our practice.  To make a long story short, I feel like I have been so terrible at giving my children the attention they so desparately want.  I feel that every time I sit down to tackle a task on our ever growing "to-do list" for the business, some small (or large) fight, tantrum, mess, meltdown, and general chaos occurs!  I have been hoping my children do not wish they had a mother who had more time for them and I have been wishing that there were an extra 20 hours in the day to get done everything that I need to do.  (Deep breath) But I just continue on and try to do my best.  Give the kids the time they need, and get all the stuff done with the business that needs done.  We are so excited to move up to Sheridan and start our adventure and we want to make the most of the time we have left in Utah!  Here are some pictures to show that we have been alive these last few months!

Brigham really enjoyed cheering for Tebow and became quite good at "Tebowing".  Now that we have Manning, we are so excited to cheer him on as a family!

The kids love sliding down the stairs on their blankets and David even supervised while Hunter rode down with them.

My sweet little baby turned 1 in January.  I can't believe how fast this year has flown by.  He has been such a fun, happy little baby, and I hope he continues to be so!  He is starting to get a little fire in him, and I am trying to get him to communicate more so I can figure out what he wants.  Oh this parenthood is such a guessing game sometimes!
He didn't quite know what to do with the present, so Brigham was more than happy to show him the way!

He is such a little cheese ball!

He was a little underwhelmed with the singing and the cake. 

This was as messy as he got!  I kept trying to get him to destroy his piece of cake, but he would dip a finger in the frosting and then lick it off.  After a few minutes of that, he was done!

He loves to do things that make us all laugh.  When he knows that he does something we all think is funny, he gets so excited and really hams it up for more giggles from us.  These Mr. Potato Head glasses are a perfect example!

"Helping" me unload the dishwasher.  What would I do without all his help?  Oh yeah, maybe get the house clean more often???!!!

So first off, the water is a little pink.  Grandma gave them these little bath tablets that turn the water colors without staining the kids.  Its a lot of fun, but I don't like to put the yellow one in without another color like red or blue, cause it looks too much like they all peed in the water!

The Bearded Lady!!!

We had cabin fever pretty bad and were desperate to get outside for a minute.  They all bundled up on a Sunday evening in March and played on the playground for a bit.
