 Okay, I know there are a million photos in this post... but that's all everyone wants anyway right?  A picture says a thousand words and all that =)
 Notice the blue hand as she tries drinking dye off the egg dipper!  mmmmmmmmmm..........

 Oh look it's becoming a fashion trend!  Cals hand also ended up blue but I guess i didn't get a pic...dang it!
 Monster eggs!!!  these were such a hit the neighbors  came down and joined in.  We used every single pipe cleaner we could find

 Oren is proud of his creation which is sporting a lovely unibrow, mustache, and beard.

 Hunting for eggs.

 Ahhhh yes it's still blue!

 He's really wide awake with his eyes closed because the sun momentarily made a guest appearance.
 We found a few of these lovely treats on our eggs this morning, i think they enjoyed finding eggs as much as the kiddies.  Calvin did NOT like them at all.  "they are disgusting!"
okay so baby ben really likes to smile, but my camera always makes them blurry cause he moves so fast i think, but isnt he cute?!?

Benjamins blessing day

 Okay so the blessing day was a little crazy and we forgot to get pics with everyone and the kids are in their pj's oh well.  Here's the man of the day...what a handsome little man!

                                                         For those of you who don't know about my wedding dress, the goal was to chop it up and make my kids blessing outfits out of it and a temple dress for myself.   So here his vest is my wedding dress.  If you look at the other kids they also have some incorporated to start my temple dress...sigh     

 I just LOVE these kids!!!  they are awesome and can always make me smile.

We are very excited to have this new little addition to our family.  He is a sweet boy with siblings who are very excited about their new brother.  Ziz is the first to alert me whenever brother wakes up from a nap.  Cal and Lu are glad to help do anything with him and Lulu has really stepped in to be the second little mommy already especially taking care of Ziz while mommy is busy.  

Welcome to the fam!

 Calvin holding baby brother.  When Cal came to the hospital he ran over jumped up onto my bed and yelled "Yeah that's my baby brother!!!"  He loves him TONS and is so excited for him to be here.  there are better pics of them together but i just love this one  =)
                                                               Proud Daddy!
 This one of Lulu just makes me smile.  she's always making silly faces at me
                          The girls and mom with the newest addition
 Cousin Brakken.  Erik and his fam came down and the boys did really good with baby.  (they liked his feet the best I think)

                Lulu tries her hand at feeding the baby a bottle.

Crazy kids!!!!!

Okay so for some reason my kids have LOVED wearing their underwear on their heads!  I'm not sure why....I think it all started one day when they were supposed to be folding their clothes and I started to get frustrated because it was NOT happening so I put Calvins undies on his head and it was instantly hillarious and the newest funny thing to do.
