Mother's Day

We raced back to Mesquite on Mother's Day so we could see Jer's mom. Her strength inspires me. I know I could not do what she has done and continues to do to fight the cancer terrorists. She amazes me with her witty sense of humor. She is not only beautiful on the outside but the inside as well. We love you so much.

For Mother's Day I had the opportunity to see my mom. I love the time I am able to spend with her. We made her breakfast and watched the boys play some baseball. We love you mom!
My sister-in-law, Lisa, asked her kids a series of questions about her. The answers were so comical. I thought in honor of Mother's Day I would ask the boys the same questions. I just love their honesty!

Crashes and Road Rashes

Ahhhhh...the sweet tast of victory!

Only Sam would learn to ride his bike in 103 degree weather wearing moon boots(for those of you who did not grow up in the 80's, snow boots)!

Pedal Bike vs. Motor Bike

Jeremy has been encouraging (okay, that might be sugar coating it) Sam to ride his bike with no training wheels. And Uncle Jared was teaching Ethan how to ride a motorbike!

Let the coaching/exercising begin boys!!!

Ava's First Haircut

Ava got her first haircut this week. She did good as long as she was holding a baby and eating chocolate cookies. She looks like such a big girl now with her new little bob cut! Our dear friend Sarah cut her hair and provided the yummy cookies. Thanks, Sarah!

Toothless grin!

Ethan lost his third tooth at school last Thursday! He tricked the tooth fairy by sleeping on the couch instead of his bed. So the tooth fairy didn't take his tooth but did leave money under his bedroom pillow. Nice smile!
