I have been tagged by Lyn. I have to say that this is probably the strangest "tag" I have ever seen on a blog, but hey, why not try it anyway?

This is what you do

1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.
5. Tag 5 people.

Okay, the nearest book to me (keep in mind that I am NOT a reader) was my daughter Anna's basal reader from 1st grade. I turned to page 123, this is what I read:

"The mouse was tired, but he knew he couldn't stop."

Sounds like pretty intense reading to me! Okay, so I will tag Jenny, Kayleen, Elicia, Rebecca, and Katie. Good luck. . . maybe your nearest book will be more interesting than mine!

I love easter because I get to buy my girls new dresses! I was excited to find matching dresses at Ross, and the girls loved them. I am so lucky to have 3 pretty little girls!

A Hunting We Will Go

Nathan and Erin and the kids came on Saturday. The kids had a great time hunting eggs and prizes at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Thanks for everything guys!


Abby turned 3 on Friday. . . wow how time flies! I can't believe she is getting so big! When we ask her how old she is, she says "Flee". I will be sad when she can say all her words the right way!

She is a little bit small for this giant trike we got her. . . I suppose she will grow into it!

If none of you have had the experience of playing "Elefun", I recommend it. I hear it is a real battery eater, but my kids will play forever. . . . especially if Uncle Ryan is involved!!!

So, this is my newest toy. . . I feel quite spoiled. Mom and Dad gave us a camper a few years ago, and we have had a lot of fun in it, but it was beginning to feel like time for an upgrade, which is extremely exciting for me! The kids and I spend a week at the end of June at swim camp, and I am very thrilled about A/C, large holding tanks, and beds for all the kids! Thanks Spencer!!! I'm not sure he realizes how much more comfortable that will make us for 1 week without him!


Anna and I had an adventure on Friday. She didn't have school, and she informed me that she would like a perm in her hair. So, we trooped on over to Aunt Merri's house to buy a perm and borrow the rods. (THANKYOU!) I was a little nervouse, being that I have never given anyone a perm before, but I thought it turned out quite cute. She loves it and hasn't quit flipping her hair all over since it was finished! I really should have gone to beauty school, I quite enjoy cutting hair and stuff.
(I guess I should have thought about that 4 babies ago!)

Here is Anna's beautiful bag over her head. . . .

Here is the front shot. . . .
Here is the back shot. . .

So, yesterday was Spencer's birthday. The kids and I had the house clean, dinner almost ready, and daddy's birthday surprise all ready. It was about 5:00. I was in the kitchen working on a few last minute things when I hear this awful scream come from the living room. Of course, I run in to see what is wrong. Lyndsie was laying on the floor holding her arm. I waited a while, and she was still crying and wouldn't move it. I decided to take her to the clinic. They took 6 X-rays, and determined she didn't have any broken bones. When the doctor started to look closer and make her move it, her elbow popped, and the doctor said. . . "I think I might have just fixed this on accident!" Sure enough, about 2 minutes later, she began moving her arm, and was happy again. The doctor determined she had dislocated her elbow. We then walked out of the doctor's office with 3 stickers, 1 sucker, and 1 very happy, expensive child! We were grateful that she didn't break it. We returned home to eat the cold supper I had prepared 1 1/2 hours earlier, and try to have a birthday party. Sorry Spencer for the rotten Birthday! We still love you!

Grandma and Grandpa Larsen just returned from a trip to Hawaii. We went for family home evening last night, and they gave the girls these funny hula outfits. The girls thought it was pretty funny that they all got new "bras". Anyways, I never knew how many moves they had until they put on those grass skirts!

Here's Anna's best moves. . . .

Here's Lyndsie's Hula Hips . . .

Here's Abby's Pose. . . (the hula hands were hard for her to figure out!)
Thank You Grandma and Grandpa for the great hula costumes! We have had a ton of fun in them already!

Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

Monday was Dr. Suess' birthday, so, the kids at school were supposed to wear crazy socks and crazy hats. We found some crazy socks, but the hat was another issue. Anna absolutely wouldn't settle for no hat at all, so we decided to give her "Cindy Lou Hoo" hair. I thought it turned out great for the occasion!


Thanks to everyone who guessed on the gender of the baby! Now we can all wait about 8 weeks until our little surprise arrives to find out who guessed right. I have to say, the odds of getting a boy aren't very good, but we always say "who knows. . . we have a 50% chance!" I promise I will keep everyone posted as soon as we know!
