Our Awesome Performer

Madysen had her spring concert this week and it was VERY fun! She sang lots of broadway & pop songs that were very fun like Mamma Mia, Beach Boys, Mama I'm a Big Girl Now & Life's What You Make It to name a few. They did an awesome job and had lots of fun! She has been involved in this program for four years and I think this was their most fun concert yet!
Getting glamed out in her feather boa..
This is Mamma was really fun and choreographed so darling
This is Madysen's teacher Hollie! She started teaching our kids this year and she rocks!
And this is our Geina...she does more than a fabulous job with all these kids. I have been more impressed with how she runs this program with each passing year! Our entire family adores her and we are so lucky to have someone so wonderful influencing our family with music! Thanks Geina for ALL you do...and that is A LOT!!!
Here is our awesome performer...Miss Madysen!
This is Madysen's good friend Chloe! They have become even better friends having music together! We love her and her fam a TON!!
This was their last concert of the year and they did awesome! We are so ready for the Disneyland performance though we can hardly wait!
If you are interested in getting your kids involved in this awesome music program their blog is

The Bride and her Party!

My little sister Kiki is getting married in a few more weeks (bet that sounds good right Kiki) and her MIL threw her a very fun bridal shower last weekend! She started off by doing a version of Cash Cab and called it Cash Bride. Kiki was asked questions, then if her answer matched Austin's previously recorded answer and won $2 bills! She started off a little rocky but by the end was rolling in $2 bills!
Here she got the answer right..
...and here she is defending that she SHOULD have got the answer right....haha nice try Kiki!
In the end she had a beautiful veil of mula!
A fun shot of Mom, Gma, Kiki and Ashwee
Me and my litle almost married Sista!
Then came the real fun...
Grandma gave her a huge bag FULL of fun kitchen stuff
Mom gave her a package of tissues that were so funny to Kiki she couldn't speak for 2 minutes straight!
And a set of the most amazing dishes (look familiar)
They say things like "girls love chocolate" "Girls love to be pampered" "Girls love a good sale" etc and are so darling!
Then a Kitchen Aid blender...apparently they are very into smoothies! Fun gift!
I had to get her Pampered Chef...inside joke as pampered chef isn't usually this funny hehe
A great set of Calphalon pans...Im thinking its been ten years since I was married and I could really use a "Way to stay married ten years" shower. I like new pans...
This is from her MIL and SIL...wrapped so darling too
It is the Kitchen Aid her and Austie both really wanted. Kiki REALLY wanted pink, but silver isn't too bad hehe!
We are all very, very happy for you both! Can't wait for the wedding to get here so you can officially be married! Love you both tons!

Glitter Toes Once More

Last week we had a glitter toe party at my house! It was super fun and good to see so many friends!
Everyone chose a different color and every single set looked amazing!
I love these on little girls! Aren't they almost TOO cute?
I made a table of treats including orange truffle bars, banana bread and gooey chocolate cinnamon bites! Head on over to my food blog for the recipes!

It was so much fun we are doing it again this week! If you wanna come stop by between 12-9 Thursday the 16th at my house! We would love to see ya!

Easter Morning Our Style

We had a wonderful, relaxing Easter day as it was on conference weekend. The kids woke up and instantly ran around finding baskets! Judd was overjoyed with a basket of candy and presents!
But of course...mostly the candy
Cooper got a pizza party to add to their collection of food. They played with this for 2 hours straight while we watched conference
He also got some sweet glasses
Madysen thought the Easter bunny forgot her basket. It took her an hour to look in the vaccum closet and find it! Tricky bunny
We just let the kids at their treats all day. Judd's were completely gone before lunch, Cooper's by the end of the day and Madysen still has half a week later. That is pretty much how it always goes at our place hehe
Then on to the egg hunt...Easter bunny hid them inside this year. Guess it was too cold for him outside. These are some more of the cool foiled ones. Fun right?
Hidden in a plant...
In a drawer...
Judd was finding em fast...we had to slow him down for the safety of the eggs hehe
Coop found lots of eggs and enjoyed putting them in the carton
Thanks for the lift Daddy-O!
Judd is wiping Peeps off his chin...but isn't this a sweet pic of him
We stayed home in our jammies all day. We played with new toys, watched new movies and conference, took a nap and then had dinner!
It was different to have a real relaxing holiday weekend!
I think this might be my favorite holiday ever...who gets to stay in their jammies on a holiday?
I'll tell ya...we did! And I would highly suggest it to anyone haha!
Happy Easter to You All!
