Easter boys

Since we didn't get to go to church on Easter because of conference I thought I should post how cute my kids Easter outfits were, so I can get my moneys worth:)

Because we were out in nature and in our dress cloths that we had never worn I turned into that scary Walmart mom on my boys during the "shoot". Don't touch that, quit moving, quit talking, don't make me.... you get the idea. It wasn't pretty. I think we made up since after words we went out for dinner (gotta love McDonald's happy meals, they make everything better).

Thanks to our favorite friends for making our picture date a success & thanks to Whitney for taking the only picture that turned out of all three boys.

When I grow up I want to be...

In March Jori's kids got to come spend a week with us over their Spring Break.
Rex and Jett think that their cousins are the best (and I agree). They are all so special to us and we wanted to tell you why....Merrill
Merrill is the oldest cousin in the Brown family. Even though he is 13 he still treats my boys like friends! Whenever Rex and Jett are with Merrill they are wrestling, playing light sabers, shooting guns or going on adventures. The boys can't wait to be as old as Merrill so that they can be just like him. I am so glad that he is such a good example to us. He is such a nice kid. He is always willing to help his Mom, still kisses his Aunt Mandy, and gives up boy scout camp to come and visit us! We love you Merrill, don't ever change!

We are all so glad when Danii comes around. She is like having a second mom around for your kids. She is the best babysitter I have ever seen because she plans out the entire night and makes sure the kids have fun! Danii is so much like her Mom, smart, very organized, and loves helping people. The boys love to play with her and I never worry about them when she is with them. She is going to be a great mom someday! We sure love our Danii Girl!
No one can feel sad with Kamryn around. She is the most loving person I have ever met. You can not be in the same room as her without her showing you affection. My boys (who do not like to much affection from most people) can not get enough from her. She is very sincere with everything she does from her sweet letters to her hug and kiss goodnight. She makes you feel loved and I hope she knows just how much we all love her! What would we do without our sweet girl. You are one of a kind Kamryn and I wish I could be more like you. We love you a ton!

Anyone who knows Korbi knows what a special person she is. She is so full of life you just smile when you think of her. She can make anyone laugh with just her smile. Everyone needs a Korbi in their family. She completes us! Her and Rex can play make believe for hours and never get sick of each other (if you know Rex, this is quite an accomplishment). Korbi is a joy to be around and I am so grateful for her for bringing such joy into our lives. We love you Korbi Rae!

So Merrill, Danii, Kamryn & Korbi thank you for being such good examples and friends to us. We think you are the best! We love you!
