April 13: Kyle will turn 19. Hard to believe. Of course, he won't be home. We decided since he is leaving for his mission in a little over a month after he gets home, he will fly home when he's done with finals, and then we will drive him down a week before he is to report. I am a little disappointed--I was so looking forward to the 23 hour drive with him and having that one-on-time with him, but it just didn't make sense.
April 16: This 'little" guy somewhere under those blankets turns 26. Now that just seems totally impossible. Chris is such a wonderful young man. When he was young we spent a lot of time with him and his sister. I sure miss seeing him and spending time with him. We were in Hawaii when he was born--I think we should go to Hawaii to celebrate his birthday. (What do you think, Chris???)
With his grandpa.
With his beautiful wife, Heather. They were married last May in Texas. Here they are when his sister was married in July.
As well, Heidi's young man who is currently serving his mission in Georgia will be celebrating his birthday. I know she is so excited that he will be home in a few months.
April 18:This boy will turn 3--that seems impossible. I wish we got to be around him more often--I don't think he knows me very well and that makes me sad. I'm sure glad his mom takes lots of pictures of him. You can go here and see all kinds of pictures.
We were together last summer after his sister got married, and were able to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Open house and stopped by to see the Draper Temple as well.
April 21: This little guy is going to turn 5. I have been doing some scrapbooking lately and was putting pictures of when he was first born into my album. Such a sweet boy. He is a real character. He loves those little mini chocolate donuts and can't help but think of him whenever I see them. I'm looking forward to seeing him in July when his new sister is born.
And here is a picture of me with two of the April birthday boys.
SIDENOTE #1: NCAA Championship Party last night was fun--best game in a long time. I actually sat and watched most of the game--in spite of being very nervous for Butler. Sure would have loved to have seen them win.
Here's our wall with all the sheets. My sheet is somewhere in the middle ; )
Here's the old die-hard gang. So different with the kids gone and so many of our usual attendees have grown up or moved away. Had Spinach Dip, Veggies, Meatballs, Ribs, Chocolate Caramel Brownies, bought Cream Puffs and Chocolate Eclairs. Figured I'd wait to make the Death By Chocolate for Kyle's party later next month.
SIDENOTE #2: Allan's recent trip to Utah. On Saturday he and the kids went to the Saturday session of Conference. Frankly, I am shocked that Allan didn't run that young man to the nearest barber shop!!!!
Allan played Easter bunny and even hid the baskets.
Happy children with their baskets.
