I am an aunt!!!! Tashana, Bryan and Lexi welcomed Brady Austin on Wednesday the 22nd.

He was 7 pounds and 10 ounces, 20 inches long and very cute! I could not believe how alert he was! His eyes were wide open the whole time I was at the hospital!

Papa's 50th Birthday

Tanner and Jess pushed the kids around the yard for like an hour!!! My kids can't get enough of them!

Laynee was sitting with Tashana and then she stuck a ball up her dress and said "I have baby too." Ha ha!!!!

The birthday boy.......who would not smile!!!

I guess he is like my kids- you have to give them candy to get a smile!

Licking the spoon is the BEST part!!!

Yesterday was cooking, cleaning, laundry, and baking day at the Sears' home. The girls helped me to make some Marshmellow, Peanutbutter Chip Brownies! Licking the spoon was the highlight!

Danika does not like chocolate. She won't eat Chocolate Chip cookies or even M&Ms. But for some reason- yesterday- she decided that she likes brownies!!!

And here is the finished product.....

They were yummy!!!!!!
Time to get the kids ready......Scott is at work for 24 hours and then comes home to sleep and goes right back for another 12. The kids and I are on our own for a few days!!!

Painting Pottery

We have a cute little pottery place in town. I took the girls there on Monday. They LOVED it!!!! They each painted a tile in their favorite color and then we put their handprint on it. When it is ready- that is going to hang on the wall in my office!!!! Just need to bring Kyler in!

We also painted a piggy bank for Uncle Bryan's baby. He painted banks for 3 of my kiddos so I thought it would be fun to do one for his. Hope he is born soon!

Easter Fun

We had an Easter brunch at my parent's house....

My dad....the cook

The Easter Bunny rang the doorbell and left Easter baskets for the kids. Scott thinks he saw the bunny running away : )

And then we had our 3rd Easter Egg hunt for the week!

And we managed to get a big family picture too.

And the kids were all eastered out!
