Spring Time is here!

We had a wonderful time over Easter. Martina, Sherrie, and Ryan all had a great time helping Kaya discover Easter eggs and candy.

She had so much fun...everytime she saw an egg, she'd say "Oh no, I found another one!" and she'd run to pick it up.

We had to empty the basket a few times because it was too heavy for her to pack around. (We didn't mind her picking candy eggs for us either :).

Tasha has been making this house a home lately, by adding some decorations. Sometimes Kaya likes the decorations too though...this time she got into the flower arrangement on the family room table. It's really hard to discipline when she's so cute getting into trouble!!!

Life is great with a cute 3 year old! :)

Kaya has finally broke the 18 lb mark! We are very happy for her...later in life (ie teenage years) she might have a good laugh that we actually celebrated her weight gain. It seems that most people celebrate when weight is lost, not gained. But we're a little unique, what can we say? :)
We're very excited about the upcoming summer...even though the winters here at our new house were very fun.
If old man winter would let spring come, we can start on our summer projects. We are currently mid-way through tearing down our "cottage cheese" ceiling. We've stripped down almost all the wallpaper and we are looking forward to tearing out our lava rock fireplace "mantle" and putting in an office. It will be great fun.

The most recent news in our family is the departure of the Barkers. Paul, Ang, and Davis endured with us for 5 months and, after many delicious BBQs, ping pong tournaments, 90's trivial pursuit games (Paul always killed us), and midnight conversations, we each have our own houses.

They purchased a home in Springville, and now we are moving all our storage stuff down to the basement.

Kaya is having so much fun in the basement...crawling in every corner and crevice (and she's so small she can fit in some tight spots).

Tasha's brother, Ryan, is excited to have access to the basement too. He finally got a room in the basement with a closet and some privacy (the game room didn't quite do it :). He's going to stay with us for a while until he finishes agonizing over the DAT (dental school test).
