This is Conner in his Jr. High Musical, Oklahoma! He did a great job. The whole cast did. The video with his song in isn't uploading, but I will keep trying. We figure Conner has reached his kissing quota for at least 4 or 5 years.

This week my brother-in-law and three of his kids arrived from Oklahoma. On Friday we had a family party so we could see them before Spencer headed down to Arizona for work.My sweet sister and her son are holding down the fort in Oklahoma, getting the house ready to sell, so they can all move to Arizona. We are THRILLED that they will be living closer to us!
Bryan and Nicole came by.
Joanna and her "green family". (One day after St. Patty's day.....huh??)
Cousins are the best!
Cousins by chance, forever friends by choice.
The Three Musketeer's!
Emily hit it off with Spencer. She loved him instantly.
And crashed fast asleep in his arms.
Here is the family all before they went their separate ways. It made me sad to think they won't all be together again for a couple months. I thought they were all very brave. The video below is in black and white. I really need to learn how to fix that on my camera. :) With everyone waiting for me, I wasn't going to try to figure it out then.
Love you Spencer, Susie, Justin, Jayden, Devon and Meagan!!

Conner has been working hard this year for Solo and Ensemble. He sang a song called, "The Song that Nature Sings." He did great at his school level, and was advanced to the District level. Here he is with two of his friends who are also musically talented.
Because Conner went to district, he was chosen to sing his solo at the choir concert. He did a great job, and didn't even act nervous.

This weekend we went on a snowmobile trip with some friends of ours. We had a wonderful time. Saturday was a little snowy, but Monday was good for the most part. Brooklynn kept calling our friends the "cousins". It was hysterical.

For Christmas this year (and Valentines) my sweet hubby got me a Mac computer. My other laptop had gone to that big scrap pile in the sky. We picked the computer up on Saturday night before a romantic dinner at Market Street Grill. Brooklynn and Emily were both sick yesterday, so I had to stay home
from church with them. We tried out the computer, and played with the photo booth feature. It was fun, and entertained Brooklynn for a while. I'm still learning all the in's and out's of my Mac, but I'm already in love. When I get a second, I'll post about Friday night..... One of the best night's I've had in a long time!!

After five months, (okay, one week short of five months) my sweet little Emily FINALLY spent the night in her cradle. Well, I guess technically, she has slept in her cradle every night, she just had to be layingin her car seat, and then we would put her car seat in the cradle. The Dr. totally discouraged it, and said it wasn't good for her back. He suggested that we move her out of her car seat by 2 months. Emily didn't listen to the doctor.
But.... last night she slept in her cradle car seat free all night!! Sure, she had her 5:00 feeding (or maybe it was 5:30, it's all a blur that time of the morning) but she went right back to sleep and stayed asleep in her cradle. We are crossing our fingers for a repeat performance.
