Quinn man turned the big 5 on the 22nd!! He is into SONIC the Hedgehog ( or should I say he is Sonic the Hedgehog, he has already informed me he is changing his name when he grows up) and has been giving me the details on how his party would look and what he was going to get for weeks. Sonic is just about the hardest party theme to have, we had to get creative because they don’t make Sonic birthday decorations (that I can find anyway), the closest I found was Mario Brothers, but since Sonic wasn’t in the group Quinn gave it the thumbs down. So I turned to the Internet and made a Sonic Happy Birthday Banner using pictures I googled, he loved it so score one for mom on that one!
Since most everyone was at State this weekend, Quinn had multiple parties.
FRIDAY: Was not only Quinn’s real birthday, but also CJ’s last day of school and then he had a play date afterwards. I a spent the day attempting to clean, decorate, and finish all my homework. Poor Quinners didn’t have much of a “real” birthday, but we made up for it the next two days.
SATURDAY: Was Chuck-E-Cheese day in Billings. Aunt Tammy, Aaron and Aalissa got into town and they along with Jodi, Kim, Ken, Taysum and Bailey were able to go with us as well. The kids had such a fun day, maybe a little too much. They were all going about 100 miles an hour all day, and then to top things off we took them to Cold Stone to add to their fire before we headed home. Talk about crash and burn; they were so wiped on the way home
SUNDAY: Everyone else got home by Sunday so we had his cake and ice-cream party then and he finally got to open his presents,” the sweetest thing that you’ll ever find in the whole wide world is a happy boy.” He was a happy boy when he finally got his Sonic Party, it was nice to have everyone over and celebrate our sweet little boy with us.
Now we can just sit back and relax and wait for baby!

These are the tiles Lindi made for my mom, sis and I! Love them!!
I was so glad Lindi put these on her blog, her photos came out a lot clearer than mine and I wanted to have them on my page as well, I am so lucky to have such a talented sis-in-law. Love ya Lindi and thanks again!!
MY MOTHER'S DAY:)
I woke up Mother's Day morning to so many fun presents! Quinn made me a flower pot with a picture of him on the flower (and a picture he painted of Sonic on the flower pot), CJ gave me his special people book with some extra pictures and fun stuff we hadn't seen before, Chad got me a dozen beautiful red roses, chocolate, candles and a gift certificate for a mani/pedi (I needed soooo bad since I can't reach my toes anymore:)), he let each of the kids pick out a cute card and sign it for me too. Very nice morning! After church Kim stopped by with more chocolate, yum, and a card. Later we went over to Mom and Dad's where I got even more presents a beautiful wall hanging from mom and dad and Lindi sent me an awesome tile that had the letter F in the background and forever family in the front, love it! It was such a great day, I just love being a mother and wife (even if I hadn't gotten all the fun presents:)
Mother’s Day is not only a day to celebrate, but also a day of remembrance for our family. Chad lost his mom to cancer when he was very young and before we started a family of our own, it was kind of a hard day. I think about his mom a lot on mother’s day and how proud she would be of all he has accomplished. Though I usually take it for granted, I am so fortunate to have my mom and also to be able to live so close, she has always been such a great example to me and one of my best friends. Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mother’s in our lives!!

Carissa turned three on Cinco de Mayo!! She of course had to have a Princess Party and had a great time. CJ was at school during the day and Quinn had a play date so we went with Aunt Kim, Taysum and Bailey to McDonalds for lunch. She wanted pizza and fruit on a stick for dinner so we made fruit shish kabobs and take and bake pizzas for dinner. Then it was time to open presents, she got a bunch of new clothes, princess ponies, movies and mom and dad redid her room (including a big girl bed) in princess décor! She wanted a pink princess cake and picked out rainbow ice-cream for cake and ice-cream. She had so much fun with all her aunts, uncles, cousins and grandma and grandpas. Thanks everyone for making our little princess’s birthday so special

What an amazing and spiritually uplifting day! My mom, sister and I had the opportunity to go to Time Out for Women Sat. the 2nd. We had the opportunity to hear from several speakers who shared their testimonies with us, including Hilary Weeks, DeAnne Flynn, Chris Stewart, Kris Belcher and Kim Nelson. The testimonies they shared were wonderful! It was so fun to hang out with my mom and sis. for the day. We got to catch up with some old friends and have a fun girl’s day out thanks to our hubbies who took care of the kids and held down the fort while we were gone for the day (I even came home to dinner and a clean house, yay!)
