I feel like I am always behind on my blogging. The months are going so quick I can barely keep it all straight. Some things we did this month include:
Mckenzee had a Field Trip at Lake Mead and I got to chaperon. It was beautiful. The lake was like glass. The students were Geologists for the day. We rode on a house boat, had lunch, and hiked up a mountain. It made for a great day.
During Reading Week the kids had to cress up like different things. One day was Workout Day. I thought Mckenzee was the cutest.
My dad turned 53 this month. I would say it was one his favorite Birthday ever. He got his dream motorcycle. Kevin says, " I don't think I have ever seen him this happy or smiling this much before". Let's just say he has not had a bad day since and we really love that for him. That night we went out for his birthday dinner. Crab legs at Green Valley Ranch ..............mmmmm.
Vegas had Extreme Make Over Home Edition. Since it was close to the house we liked to drive by and check on the progress. It was fun seeing Ty Pennington and the others. The scooter came is handy going in and out of that neighborhood. On the last day we happened to get there right after they moved the bus. We got to see Ty take the family into the house. It was fun to go. The house is pretty interesting and sticks out horribly. It will be fun to watch the episode, it will show on May 10th.
My cousin, Kylan, left for the MTC on the 25th. He will be serving his mission in Japan for the next 2 years. We are going to miss him, but know he is needed there and he is going to be a great missionary.
My cousin Aryann had her baby girl, Hope, on the 30th. She is a cutie. My aunt, Cheree had her baby also. A beautiful little boy, Reese, and I am loving him to pieces. I just about see him everyday. He was born on the 28th. He is quite possibly the hairiest baby I have ever seen!
Kevin got his official Board Certification Letter in the mail. I am so proud of him and I love him crazy.
I won on the radio, AGAIN! This time I won 2 concert tickets for 3 Doors Down. It's Friday April 3. I can't wait.
I am still loving that I get to stay home. Now that I am getting use to it, I have more time for fun things, my house, meeting after meeting, and most of all the fam and that makes it all worth it!

Do you ever have the day when you say, When did I turn in to my parents? AAAAAAAA!
The other day I was having lunch with my brother and we were talking about growing up and how things are now and so on. I was asking about his wife and them moving in our house, one day, and just about life. If you know us and how we grew up, you would know that we can get a little crazy about having a clean house, thanks to our dad. He was the white glove type and unfortunately or fortunately for our families it rubbed off on us. When we were growing up we absolutely hated all the cleaning, closets, under beds, dusting, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning! He would always tell us, "Here, let me show you how to do it!" You know when your a kid and you just wipe around things? Well my dad would come and check and then make us move everything and do it over again. Ugh!
Anyway, we got on the topic and he tells me that when he is over at her parents house and they are cleaning that he helps them so that he can show them how to do it. He looked at me and said, " They have crumbs under the toaster!" and then he says, " They don't move things, they just wipe around them." So at that point he tells me that he says to them, " Here, let me show you how to do it!" Oh my how I was rollin'! That is the funniest thing I have ever heard. I just looked at him and said, " Oh, Brandon, you are so DAD!" The smile my brother gave me was priceless!
Yes, we are a little on the OCD side. Sorry! Good thing is I only feel that way about my own house, I couldn't care less about other people's. I will have to admit, I am thankful now that I learned to keep my house in order and my things nice. As Mckenzee would say, "Don't judge me!".
