It has become a tradition to do a fun birthday dinner with our Trudy and Oz everytime someone has a birthday.  This month we celebrated Mikayla and Steves!  We did fondue.
It was lots of fun!
Oz ordered some sauces from France, and I supplied the meat and fruits and sweet sauces.
Trudy also made the birthday kids a cake.
Great Tradition!

NUVO baby!

Last dance competition of the season the first weekend of this month!  It was in SLC!  Mikayla got an outstanding dancer scholarship.....That means that she gets to compete for "Non stop Dancer" at Nationals this summer!

Here she is with her friend Landon.
We love Landon!  She was super happy that he was there to support her!
Our kids worked super hard and won lots of awards and scholarships!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo Its been a crazy month! Guess who is 17!!!

Yep this cutie had a birthday!  I cant believe that she is 17!  Seriously where does the time go?!  It blows our minds how fast time has flown.  This year she was pretty excited!  We gave her tickets to the One Republic Concert!  She was a happy girl.  I love that she is amazing, kind, smart, beautiful and the funniest kid!  She is in love with sleeping, dancing, eating chocolate and listening to One Direction.  Yep that's our girl!
Happy Birthday to my Mikayla!

Reuniting with my Best Friend

This is my Best Friend from Junior High and High School.  Dan Ballard.  He and I go way back!  He is an amazing friend and person.  He and his sweet wife Wendi were in Provo visiting this past week to their son Austin and his wife Karren.  His sons baby was to be born this week.  He had some problems, and he passed away a few hours after he was born.  I am so sad for their family, but I am grateful that we all have a knowledge of the plan of salvation.  Although it is a hard time for them, I know that they will be comforted
Not too bad for a couple of old folks!

Easter 2014

Every Easter, we do our traditional "Crack off".  We learned about this years ago from our good friends the Caziers.  It has become a huge tradition.  Everyone decorates 2 hard boiled eggs and decorates them.  Then they are put into brackets for a double elimination crack off.  Two eggs rolled together, and only one breaks.
Here is our famous artist Megan Van Gogh.  She decorated all of our family eggs to look like the minions.
She won.

Here is what all of the eggs looked like.  We had 60 eggs and about 50 rounds! Kids love it!

Megs purple minion busted!

Our cutie ALEAH!

Roll baby roll!

 Mike cracked out first....poor mine craft egg......
My minion broke too.

This is my best friend Julie

Josh had a blast rolling.

After the crack off we did a weenie roast and an easter egg hunt.  I like to think, that I AM THE FAVORITE AUNT!
Fun day had by all!
