Spring has sprung!

It's official, spring has sprung! Although you wouldn't be able to tell seeing how we are still dressed in winter coats and hats. Our pale skin emerged from within the fours walls we have been staring at for the past 6 or 7 months. The kids said to themselves, "oh so this is what the outdoors look like!" Carter bug is on the move and loving exploring the outdoors, all sorts of new adventures to look forward to. And more laundry for mommy to do because now things can really get dirty! Boys love dirt. One of the first things Carter did when he got outside was go sink his little paws into a pile of dirt and his face was beaming with delight! Nolan is into watching every move his brother makes, staring at him with envy because he to wants to be on the move too. I have a feeling Mr. Nolan will be getting around pretty quick here! They are loving each others company and driving each other silly at the same time. Boys will be boys!

The best of friends. . .

I love watching my babies learning to love each other and get along. They are starting to play together and enjoy each others company. It is the most precious thing ever to watch. Carter has become such a good big brother, still learning to be gentle but you can tell he really loves him. Showers him with slobbery kisses and hugs the life out of him. They giggle non stop in each others face and it is hilarious!

Great Aunt & uncle

My Aunt Vicki and Uncle Jim came over to visit last weekend. They had not had a chance to meet Mr. Nolan yet. Carter and Nolan were eating up all of the extra love. We had lunch and promised we wouldn't wait until Nolan was walking to see them again.

Happy belated b-day Uncle Josh

We met up in Freemont this weekend to celebrate Uncle Josh's 30th birthday (which was February 17th) We let Carter out and about and the boy has discovered his freedom. Watch out world, here he comes, on foot and fast!

A shower for Baby Raleigh Rinabarger!

Our dear family friends Erin and Steven are expecting their first little boy in April. My mom and I hosted a shower this weekend to celebrate the bundle of joy to be. We had a house full of ladies that all helped put on this fabulous event!

I grew up with Steven Dean (and his brother Scotty), they are like siblings to me. When Steven was little, I use to dress him up and pretend he was the sister I never had. And look at him now, about to be a daddy! Crazy!

My boys

A house full of boys! Stinky at times but all pretty darn cute! I just love them all to pieces!

Bath time

These can be used as leverage in their future. Later girlfriends will love to see these, I am sure!

80's night . . . yeah!

Yeah, we rocked the 80's at a school dance last week. Our wonderful Health & PE teacher has put on an event the last two years. Our theme this year was the 80's so we pulled some fashionable threads out of the closet and danced the night away.
