Catching up

I've been a blog slacker lately, and for that I apologize. Its just been one of those weeks (or months) where I've felt rather overwhelmed with life and all that we have going on. So here is a quite update. This week we celebrated Ryan's birthday. The kids and I surprised him for lunch, thanks to our good friend David, then later that evening we went to dinner at Los Hermanos in Provo with my parents and my niece Chelsie, my parents paid, it was great. :) Then we went to a Utah Valley Symphony concert. My niece Jaime was a soloist, and it was amazing! 7 soloist ages 9-19 performed with jaw dropping talent. I left feeling amazing, and amazingly mediocre all at the same time. It was a really fun evening. Then Friday night we had a party with all our closest friends, including Chick-fil-a, spinach-artichoke dip, fruit dip, and brownie sundaes. Oh yeah, there were people there too... I think Ryan enjoyed himself. I would have pictures, but Ryan hates pictures and I wanted him to enjoy his birthday, so you'll have to go on mental images.

Saturday Ryan began priming the basement rooms that are finished, and we finally got around to painting Beth's room! Yay! I will post pictures when its all complete. But for now I will just say its very cute and cheerful and we are one step closer to creating "Neverland".

Also this past week we got pictures taken of the kids. Once again Teresa did not disappoint. Here are a few of my favorites. Do I have cute kids are what?

Diane, when I asked for a picture of the children I had not scrolled on down through the blog. I would also like to have one of Beth lying down. They are so cute!
