Marathon Post

Sometimes it seems as though I have just posted something and then I look at all of the new pictures I have taken and realize how far behind I am. Everything seems to be in order these days. My kids are healthy and happy and as a mother, that is all I can ask for. Lets see...things that are new... Jesse's mom took all of her daughters on a much needed ladies' retreat. We met 2 of Jesse's aunts, his Grandma, and some of the girl cousins in Midway. We stayed up there for 2 nights and I was completely rejuvenated. I bawled my eyes out for the first 20 minutes driving there but after listening to whatever I wanted in the car, I was okay for the next few hours. I only had one meltdown the whole time I was there which is really good for me. Jesse did an amazing job watching the kids. He is such a good dad- I am sure the kids didn't miss me one bit. We ate out, went shopping, went to a movie, did some crafts, and played some pretty ridiculous games- it took some of us all we could do not to pee our pants. Thank you so much Becky for everything.
Later in the month, we took the babes to Disney On Ice. Both Grandma Kris and Grandma Becky met us there. They have all these fun little displays everywhere which sucker you in to buy these extremely overpriced gadgets. Of course, your kids just have to have these gizmos. After seeing how cute and excited Finn was I think the whole thing was worth every penny.
My little Lark is now 6 months old. We decided to pierce her ears and I have to say I think it is the cutest thing ever. Here are her stats: she is 16 pounds-14 ounces and is in the 50% for weight, length and head circumference. W e couldn't be happier. She is such a good baby. She can sit up all by herself. She shakes her head no (she obviously has no clue why she is shaking it, but mom thinks she is brilliant!). Finn gets her to laugh on a daily basis and my heart just melts watching them together. Other than that, we are just plugging along at the daily grind. I think my kids are the cutest things ever so I apologize for all the pictures I had a hard time narrowing it down.

Part II: It has been a week since I started this post and feel like I am already behind again so I thought that I would add a few more things. It truly is a marathon post. Jesse's brother Nate and his family came to Ogden for a little getaway. We were able to meet them at the Treeehouse Museum, went to dinner, and then we took a dip in the pool at their hotel. It was so nice to see them and spend some time together. Finn loves his cousins.
We had a wonderful Easter. We went to Jesse's parents on Saturday for the annual Easter egg contest and then to my mom's house on Sunday for dinner. Happy Easter everybody.
This is a little random, but I got this idea from my sweet friend Mandi. I asked Finn a bunch of questions and here are his answers. But first, a little praise to my friend Mandi- thank you so much for being such a great friend. I love that we can just pick up the phone and talk for hours (if our kids would let us) about the same silly shows we watch and whatever else we can come up with. Thank you for finding me the sweetest necklace with my kids' names on it. For the rest of you, it is from "The Vintage Pearl" if you want to check it out! I love it. I have now bought my mom one and my sister in-law just bought one. Anyway Mandi, you are the best. Thanks.

Wow! How did I miss this one? I loved seeing the pics of you all at disney on ice. Reminds me of when I used to take my gang to Sesame "Street Live". Good times! So fun to catch up with you guys. Luv you!

What a great post, Lindy! I loved the pictures. And that was a great idea to 'interview' Finn. His answers were so cute and telling. Hey, is he branching out on his food with quesadillas? Woo-hoo! Lark's pierced ears are lovely. :)

Cute, cute, cute. Love you...

Shelley said...

Danielle said...

Hey. How are you guys? Paul told me you are in the Ogden area. We should try to get together sometime to catch up. I can't believe you have 2 kids.

You guys sure have some cute little monsters. It was great seeing you guys. Next time we'll have to bring our munchkins so Finn can teach them how to behave in public. Lindy probably wouldn't want that though because guaranteed Josh would corrupt the Finnster - then you'd hate us. Until next time....hugs and kisses.
