Makadee Graduated from Taylor Elementray's Pre-school in May. She still has one more year of Pre-school, but they can only go to Taylor for one year. So they held a graduation for them. She was so excited! And I was so proud of her. She knew all the words to all the songs in the program. And did so awesome!

Field trip time

I was lucky and had the day off when Makadee's class went on a field trip in May. We had so much fun! We went to a farm that is located in Springville. I can't remember the name of it. But the kids really enjoyed it. I think Makadee's favorite part was riding on the bus. She has asked many times since if she will ever get to ride the bus again.

Home made ice cream!

We recieved an ice cream maker for Christmas. We were so excited! We finally got it out in April and made our first batch. The kids had so much fun turning it. And it was so delicious! We have made many more batches and there are many more to come.

So for 2 weeks I thought my new furnace was broke because I kept hearing this horrible noise coming from it. I called the repair man twice and he could never find anything. And of course the noise was never happening when he was here. Then one morning CJ was still home when the noise happened. He came running upstairs and asked if that was the noise I had been complaining about. I told him it was. He said you are not going to believe this, but I think I know what it is. And then he ran outside. He was soon back inside and informed me that the noise was simply a woodpecker pecking at the flue pipe! I was so mad at that woodpecker! So for the next few weeks, about twice a week and at about 6:00 in the morning. This stupid woodpecker would come around and wake me up. Thankfully, knock on wood, he hasn't been around for a few months.

Easter 2010

We had a wondeful Easter this year. We were able to have a little egg hunt with my Brother Dallin and his family at my Mom's house. The girls got spoiled by the Easter bunny as usual. And Grandma Woodcox made them beautiful dresses. And I was lucky this year and got a cute skirt.

March 2010

March had a few events that happened. Some happy and some sad.

It started off with Makadee finally getting her ears pierced. She is such a girly girl and always wants to look pretty. So I decided to get them pierced. I don't think she was too happy with me. And she still has not let me change them. But she sure does look cute :)

Then I had a sad day come. One of my students (for those that don't know I am a tech at an elementary school,) passed away after battling Luekemia. I was so happy for her to be done with her struggles. But I sure do miss her smile. I purchased balloons and took them to school for her class to let go. Her family was able to be there to and it was a neat tribute to her from us.

And the last major event to happen in March was Makadee learning to ride her two wheeler bike (still with training wheels.) She was so excited to have a big girl bike like Kirstee.

February 2010

Not a whole lot happened in February this year. We did take a trip up to the gateway with Casi and Nile. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Applebee's. And then took the kids to Discovery Gateway. I didn't get very many pictures :( But here is what I did get. (I love that I am not in any of them. I really have no proof I went.)
