Macy thinks Mack is the funniest kid.

I got Macy a couple of hair clips the other day just wondering if they would work.  She doesn't have a ton of hair yet...but I was just curious.  At least they stayed in!

Last week Macy got pretty sick.  I took her to the Doctor, she had 103.5 degree temp.  And the inside of her mouth was all white.  She ended up having a really bad ear infection and thrush.  But even though she was really sick...she was still trying to be happy.  

(Sorry for the horrible quality of video)

P.S I'm off to Hawaii.  Aloha!

We dyed easter eggs the other day for family home evening.  First we colored them...


Then we added monster eyes and mouths.

 Jodi was nice to take around Macy for me while I snapped some pictures of the Easter Egg hunt. 



 Tregan is going to be walking before you know it. 






The Grandkids.

This Last week, Caitlyn spent the night at our house because her and Mack never get to see each other.  She is the funniest little girl ever.  

P.S. Sorry the video is the wrong direction...i had my iphone turned the wrong way. 
Remember how I was telling you that Courtney is dang good at Volleyball?  Well she is.  



 Erica and Cohen had fun at the tournament...

 And Courtney is a freaking allstar. 

 And these two are inseparable.

 No boogers...see?

And Macy has taken a real liking to Grandma Mackay.

Here is part 2 of our girls trip...

Erica and I woke up early monday morning to go and do a session at the St. George temple.  It was my first time being there.  It was amazing.  What a great time I had!  Although Erica and I were the only people under the age of 70 in our temple session.  Nikki and Mom spent a lot of the day looking for houses since Nikki is moving in a couple of months.

And then we were REALLY lucky that my dad stopped by to spend the night with us before he went on to Vegas the next morning.

The last day, we played some volleyball before heading back home:


Almost Nikki... 




Erica is so buff. And tough.  

And cute Courtney...So sweet and nice.  And she is a dang good volleyball player now!

We had sooo much fun on this trip.  Shopping, games, movies, and eating topped off with a little bit of sarcasm always makes for a good girls trip.  THanks Mom for everything!

So last weekend me and my mom and sisters went on our yearly girls weekend to St. George.  Here is part 1 of the highlights:

On the drive down, we stopped in a little town called Joseph, Utah.  It is where my Grandpa Gilbert was born and we have a lot of family history there.  I'd never been there and was quite interested in seeing this:

 This is the headstone marking the grave of my great grandmother who died when my grandpa was only 2.  I had always heard about her and was very excited to make a connection with her.

 This was an adorable General Store that has been turned into a hair solon.

 This was an old church house that has been turned into a reception hall, but I thought it was a very cute church house. 

And this is the random turkey that was walking across the road.  Apparently, in Joseph, you don't need to keep your animals fenced in.

We spent the first couple of days shopping and playing games.  Our sister in law, Lindsey, is pretty much the coolest person ever.  I want to be just like her when I grow up.   We played a really fun game, Bananagrams.  Lindsey is really good at it.  See?

 She uses really sophisticated language.

And she taught us a really fun card game called Spades.  We had a blast with that one.




Did I mention that we are totally hilarious?  We laughed the entire weekend.  We laughed till our stomachs hurt.

And we completed a totally scientific experiment...
You can't really see what we wrote on here.  But we did the chinese pencil test that tells you how many kids you are going to have and what order the gender will be.  Here is what we got:

Nikki:  Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl (8 kids total).  Nikki, you better get cracking on those last 5 kids.

Linds: Boy, Boy, Girl, Boy

Me:  Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl

Erica:  Boy, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl (there may have been another boy at the end..I can't remember. )

And Courtney...I can't remember what she had...anyone remember?

Anyway, it was pretty crazy how the kids that we have had this far were 100% accurate.  Like I said...scientific.

Courtney turned 13 a few weeks ago!! We had a surprise birthday party for her.  I had more fun at her party than any of mine that I have had.  




 Courtney's friend got her a few goldfish.  They died while we were on our girls trip. 

 They played the candybar game...


 And they played the penny and the flour game...


And they played "Find the fishy cracker in the Whipped Cream"... 





So much fun.  Mack had a blast running around with all these girls.  And I had a blast helping out with the party!  Happy birthday Courtney!
