Here is a new shout out to my in-laws. Most people are not as luck as I am to have such great in-laws. Paul and Kathy have helped Ben and I through so much stuff and I don't know where we would be without them. When we lived in Utah they built a basement apartment for us to live in. We never paid rent and they were so patient with us. We lived in there house for the first 3 kids we had. We had little Katrina and she was so beautiful and so sweet that we had to name her after her Grandma Kathy. Also when we lived with them Kathy and I would spend the days talking and cooking and Ben had Paul to talk to at night. We miss them a ton and I wish they could be here to see how big our little ones are getting. Paul and Kathy are such hard workers and they never seem to let life get them down. When you walk in the door you are going to get a big smile and a hug. They have made me feel like one of there own kids. They are also great with my kids. Jessica just loves Paul and always talks about the Grandpa that gives her peanuts. They have been a great example to Ben and I and we love them to death. Thanks Mom and Dad.

So I just had to let everyone know that it is not Reagan crying in the background. It is Sabrina, she was mad cause she wanted to dance with Reagan and I wouldn't let her.
Jessica loves to dance and sing to Sleeping Beauty. She wanted to dance with Reagan the other day and I thought it was so sweet.
We had a fun weekend. The girls and I spent a lot of time at the park. I can't believe how much energy they have. I wish I was young again. When Joe and Heidi came out to visit they gave us this great grill. We used it on Saturday for steaks and hot dogs and the girls loved watching Ben make the fire. What can I say, I have really cute kids. They take after there Dad.

We had such a wonderful weekend. Ben was off of school for spring break and his brother Joe and wife Heidi came to visit. They have 3 kids that are all really close in age as ours, Kayla, Isaiah and Porter. The girls loved playing with Kayla and I don't think they fought once. Sabrina and Isaiah play great also except she kept stealing his sippy cup. We took them over to the lake by our house and up to Ben campus. We played it really low key. I think we all needed the break. We got some great pictures of the kids and us at the park. Reagan has a little friend in there boy Porter. They are only 3 months apart and they are so dang cute. Reagan kept trying to grab Porter face. We hated to see them go. They are a really fun couple and we really miss having family around. We are hoping to make it back to Utah this summer so the kids can see there cousins and we can get out of the heat.

We started off our day by cleaning the whole house. I was sick yesterday so the house got destroyed. Tonight I made corned beef and cabbage. I also made green jello with strawberries, strawberry slush's and carrot cake cupcakes with green cream cheese frosting. The girls loved the corned beef and I was surprised that I liked the cabbage. It was a nice dinner.

Here is this weeks shout out a little late. He is getting so big so quick and I hate that our families are missing that. He sleeps exactly like Ben does, it is so sweet. He is putting everything in his mouth and gets more loves from his sisters than any other kid I have seen. He is the best little boy I could ask for. He has the sweetest eyes that just melt my heart every time I look at him. He puts up with being mauled all day and most of it is from me. He is always smiling and is really happy. He is a wonderful little part of our family.

This is so cute. My girls learned a new song in school this week and they sing it all day long.
Katrina is one of the funniest kids I have ever met. She says some of the craziest things. The other day they were learning about butterflies in there school and I asked Katrina about them. She said that a caterpillar goes to sleep in a raccoon and wakes up a butterfly. She is so cute. Then today she was going potty and she called for me. When I got there she said that her bum was tired. I don't know what to say to that.
