Easter Celebrations


We started our Easter celebrations on Saturday night at Grandma and Grandpa Larsen's.

We decorated eggs:

while Trey sat patiently in his walker:

Then Grandma planned a scavenger hunt for the kids that ended with them in the tub:

In the basket they found an Easter book for each of them along with some treats. Grandma then took them all downstairs to read them their stories:

When we got home Tatum wrote a letter to the Easter bunny. We left it out with our decorated eggs for him to hide around the house.


Easter morning we woke up to see that the Easter bunny left a candy trail that led to the kids baskets.

 After breakfast and an quick egg hunt we headed to Ogden to my Aunt and Uncle's house. My cousin just returned from his mission and after his homecoming we had lunch and an egg hunt.

 Trey hates to sit in the grass...

 We then had 3 more stops later that day to visit Eric's side of the family.
We came home exhausted and to our heads in was a great day!

...Love of the family...

We have had a very eventful week around here. 
On Saturday I just dropped my Mom off at the airport after having her for 9 whole days! 

My Family came in town on Thursday the7th. 
The next morning my Dad, little Sister and I got up early to go snowboarding.
On our way up the canyon I said to my Dad "Bet you anything Elan (my older Sister) is going to have the baby (due in a week) while we are gone and then Mom is going to be stuck at home with all 4 of the boys."
He said there was no way that was going to happen. 

We went for a few runs and then came to the lodge for a break.
I called Elan to see how she was doing and sure enough she was in the hospital and in labor!
All I had to say was "I told you so!" 

We only skied for half a day and then headed home, showered and headed to the hospital just in time to meet baby Allie!

After a quick hello, we ran back home picked up a few things and then  headed to Brigham City for my Grandpa's 90th Birthday party.

We showed up and realized it was only an adult party...I guess we missed the memo!
We still had a great time and enjoyed seeing the fam!

The next morning we went to see our nephew Hunter get baptized.

It was so great to be there for him on his big day!

Then the next morning (Sunday) we said goodbye to my Dad and lil' sis.
They had to get back to work and school but left my Mom to help with the new baby.
She definitely spoiled us while she was here and she spent every spare minute snuggling with this one...

...and chasing around these boys.

We love you Mom, and miss you already!

...9 Months Old...

Last week this cutie pie turned 9 months old.

People always say that your second goes by so much faster that the first and man are they right!

Here is a little about Trey:
  • He is SUCH a mamma's boy
  • He will eat anything you put in front of him
  • At his 9 month check he weighed 18 lbs 3 oz which is surprising only the 10th percentile
  • He refuses to crawl. He can sit up and tries to crawl but then lands on his stomach and cries.
  • He pulled himself up the other day which makes me think he will just skip crawling.
  • Trey is a great sleeper. He sleeps between 11 and 12 hours at night.
  • He says "Da-Da" all day long but will not say "Ma-Ma"
  • Trey loves his Brother. Tatum can make him laugh like no one else.
  • He loves to watch the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but wont give any other show the time of day.
  • Trey is a busy kid. He is always looking for something new to grab and play with.

    We just love our little guy and can't imagine life without him!
