We took Kaya to the Build-A-Bear shop in Orem...she had a blast.

The first 20 minutes were spent helping Kaya decide on only one bear. Naturally she liked every choice, and wanted all twenty options. We finally narrowed the selection and moved to the next station, where she was stuffed and where Kaya could put in the bear's heart. After the bear was "alive", Kaya had to give her a bath. Then came choosing the new bear's clothes (yet again, another 20 minute decision). We added an accessory backpack to the mix and then chose the new bear's name: Becca.

Kaya was so excited to have another friend (we can't wait until May when her brother/sister comes to be her new friend...she really needs a friend that moves--and cries, and sleeps and poops :).

Sticker monster!!

I think we forgot to lock the desk drawer...

Tasha's Tummy

29 Weeks along...we are getting a lot closer (and Tasha is feeling a lot fatter)!!!

Kaya's BIG 4

This is a really LATE post (Kaya will kill me later when she's a teenager), but hey, 1.5 months later is better than never! Kaya and Tasha were in Arizona visiting Tasha's grandparents on Kaya's b-day, then we had another party when she got back here. So she really had two birthday parties. In Arizona she went on a merry-go-round, went shopping, playing in the swimming pool (while we were freeeeeeezing in Utah), and to the circus. In Utah, we had all her cousins over for a big party(Thanks to Caitlin Nibly for these pics)

They really liked these glow in the dark got dangerous in the dark. I think my eye almost got poked out.

It's fun to see Kaya growing older (I wish she was growing taller and heavier...she's probably the lightest 4 year old--21 lbs). Opening presents is fun (she actually likes her toys and clothes), she actually blows out candles, and she eats her cake (at least a couple bites).
We are hoping for 30 lbs next B-day, but 1st Quarter results are a little disappointing and we need to make up ground in the 2nd Quarter. Otherwise, the shareholders (Tash, me, all of you) will be in an uproar.
