My handsome Easter boy.

2014-04-21 22.17.43small

Tom brought back this cool puzzle from NYC.

2014-04-21 16.46.14small

I finally planted some flowers. I hope I can keep them alive.

2014-04-21 13.01.21small

“Hi ants! You doing? Good? Ok!” He’s so friendly.

2014-04-20 16.04.45-2small

Easter family.

2014-04-20 16.02.51-1small

Three handsome generations.

2014-04-25 12.46.31small

We got a huge box of clothes from Jackson (via Grant). Spencer is a lucky boy!

2014-04-24 20.39.59small

Reading time with dad.

2014-04-24 11.04.51small

Spencer is obsessed with the Little Critter books. He’ll ask me to read them over and over. It’s so cute.

2014-04-22 09.43.32small

Helping me sew a nursing cover.

2014-04-22 09.35.46small

I sewed baby girl’s minky blankets – one small and one big.

2014-04-26 20.31.21-1small

Kiley and Heather are engaged!! Woohoo! We had them over for dessert and games. We played Settlers of Catan. It was my first time, and I totally won! I was pretty happy about that.

2014-04-26 11.29.23small

This lucky boy got a new motorcycle. He LOVES it. So does Mac.

2014-04-26 11.01.04small

Coloring with dad while I went to the temple. 2014-04-25 16.41.30small

We took Grandma to the aquarium! They had added these new HUGE fish, and Spencer thought they were pretty cool.

2014-04-25 16.23.49-2small

He was excited to show her the “genguins.”

Everyone is happy after a Sunday nap. 🙂

2014-04-15 10.12.54-1small

Toddler selfie.

2014-04-14 17.22.47small

Tom went to NYC from Monday to Thursday. We missed him tremendously. While he was at the conference, we ate at mom and dad’s almost every night. Spencer had fun helping Gama pound the chicken.

2014-04-14 11.13.03small

Miss you, dad!

2014-04-14 10.24.11small

My cute little monkey.

2014-04-15 12.00.27small

We stopped by the aquarium and the penguins were swimming! So fun!

2014-04-17 11.34.40small

He sure knows how to enjoy a picnic. 🙂

2014-04-16 08.52.33small

He was so excited about his triangle toast that he would barely eat it.

2014-04-15 14.26.08small

I readjusted the pink dots so that they are more uniform. I decided I didn’t like the faded down look that we had originally.

2014-04-17 16.33.27 HDRsmall

Playtime with Covel.

2014-04-19 08.55.27small

His truest best friends – baby and big.

2014-04-18 15.50.00small

Starting to learn more piano skills.

2014-04-18 12.14.21small

He is the best lunch date. I love his sweet smile so much.

2014-04-19 09.03.29small

I’m sad we didn’t get any better pictures (we were mostly taking video) of when Spencer found his Easter basket on Saturday morning. He was most excited about the chocolate.

2014-04-19 09.07.28small

Reading his new Easter basket book with dad.

2014-04-19 09.24.28 HDRsmall

Tom found his basket – in our closet, behind our clothes (and my boots). Mine was hidden INSIDE the grill in the backyard.

2014-04-19 12.08.01small

We went to the Blodgett Easter egg hunt on Saturday afternoon. Spencer was a rockstar. He LOVED finding the eggs.

2014-04-19 12.15.28-2small

Double fisting it.

2014-04-19 12.14.56small

I think this picture is funny – I’m pretty sure he found the egg we were pointing to.

2014-04-19 12.28.16small

He found a cute deer in Grandpa Blodgett’s yard.

2014-04-19 12.26.22small

Family Easter pic.

2014-04-19 12.19.03small

After he found his 12 allotted eggs, he decided that he needed to help Aunt Brittany find her eggs.

2014-04-19 15.47.11small

Later on Saturday we had a quick Easter exchange with mom and dad Bay. The grandkids hid some eggs for Gama and Papa to find, too.

2014-04-19 15.46.58small

Spencer LOVES candy.

2014-04-19 16.24.53small

Attempting to take a picture….

2014-04-19 19.29.17 HDRsmall

Jared gave us his season tickets for one of the RSL games. I’ve never been to a professional soccer game. I’ll admit, I got a little bored, but it was cool to be there! Especially with his great seats, and free concessions.

2014-04-19 21.40.22 HDRsmall

We sat with Mike and Kelsey.

2014-04-19 22.45.19small

Easter flowers from my love.

2014-04-19 19.30.52 HDRsmall

It was a gorgeous night for some soccer.

We got tickets to the Sunday afternoon session of General Conference. Tom stayed home sick – so I went with John, Lucy, and Glen. I had a really hard time staying awake, unfortunately.

2014-04-06 22.08.55small

John fixes broken iPads and iPhones for a living now. He’s pretty good!

2014-04-06 18.49.26small

Sunday media. Woot.

2014-04-06 16.22.46small

Sweet little Nora.

2014-04-07 20.10.07small

John and Glen set up a gathering to watch the Final NCAA game with UK vs. UConn. We lost, unfortunately.

2014-04-07 18.34.20small

Sharing his lunch with Katarina Kittycat and Prince Wednesday.

2014-04-07 11.46.34-1small

He doesn’t have any UK clothes – so we worked this magic.

2014-04-09 11.49.52small

It’s Spring!

2014-04-10 17.34.35small

Staring down the tractor.

2014-04-10 18.16.08small

So happy to be driving a tractor!

2014-04-10 16.40.34small

He LOVES this new clock puzzle I bought him. He has done it 100 times by now.

2014-04-09 15.00.46small

Playing with sister’s toys.

2014-04-09 14.54.38small

He was pretty excited to help me set up the swing and let his pandas take a ride. I hope he doesn’t try to kick his sister out of it when she comes.

2014-04-12 15.22.39small

We went to New Wave Subs for dinner – it’s all 80’s themed, even the sandwiches (all 50 options).

2014-04-11 16.33.10small

I am so excited for gorgeous weather!! We can finally play outside!

2014-04-11 15.53.13small

Hiding in the corner.

2014-04-11 09.57.00small

He really likes to include his pandas in everything he does. He is a very sweet friend.

March 30 – April 5, 2014

2014-03-30 16.52.59small

Spencer was practicing to be a good big brother. He gave the baby a bottle and a paci, and put her in the bouncer. Sweet boy.

2014-03-31 15.28.06small

Welcome to Utah, Glenny! He got to come for his spring break – as a surprise from mom and dad.

2014-04-01 11.21.37 HDRsmall

We got to go to the new Aquarium with Glen! It was so fun! I love having a free annual pass, and living 5 minutes away!

2014-04-01 11.05.41small

Cool. Sharks.

2014-04-01 10.50.21small

He loved the fish tanks that he could stand right up against.

2014-04-01 08.49.54small

He insisted on sitting on Glen’s lap for breakfast. He sure loved having his uncle around.

2014-03-31 18.37.58-2small

Way to get some air, Glen!

2014-04-01 12.17.59small

Glen LOVES In&Out, so we got to eat there a couple times. 🙂

2014-04-01 12.13.46small

Happy boy!

2014-04-02 15.53.08small

Spencer loves his new Daniel Tiger friends. I was supposed to wait to let him have them when his sister came – but I just couldn’t. He was SO happy when he opened the Amazon package.

2014-04-01 18.55.40small

Rainy brothers basketball.

2014-04-01 16.11.59small

Glen helped me put the rest of the dots up. He’s a great helper.

2014-04-03 08.49.40small

And he was the lucky one that got to sleep in the pink room. 🙂

2014-04-03 11.22.06 HDRsmall

We went to Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum with John, Lucy, and Glen. Spencer loved it! Especially the helicopter. He’s got a thing for helicopters and motorcycles.

2014-04-03 11.20.55small

He was SO excited about the real life “heh-copter.”

2014-04-03 11.10.40small


2014-04-03 11.27.22small

Making calls.

2014-04-03 11.06.51small


2014-04-04 17.43.34 HDRsmall

We took Glen to dinner at Texas Roadhouse, and while we were waiting for a seat Spencer went with dad to explore the tractors that were close by. He was thrilled. Little boys…they are all the same. 🙂

2014-04-04 14.29.30small

Daddy built Spencer a cardboard box house to play in while we watched General Conference. It kept him pretty busy for awhile.

2014-04-04 10.39.39small

This is what staying home sick and working from home looks like.

2014-04-03 20.26.09small

Hard at work on our “pewters.”

2014-04-04 22.27.51small

Happy Glenny.

2014-04-05 17.29.21small

During the Priesthood session of conference, we took Lucy to the aquarium. It was just as cool the second time. 🙂

2014-04-05 14.48.49small

Snuggling with dad during Conference.

2014-04-05 11.17.27-1small


2014-04-05 10.40.24small

He also was kept occupied with these little stickers. Good times trying to listen to conference and entertain a 1-year-old.

2014-04-05 20.40.47small

Watching the UK final four basketball game – we won!!

2014-04-05 22.17.52-1small

Happy 18th birthday, Glen – and GOOO Cats!!

2014-04-05 22.09.24-3small

Rubbing baby Ling-Ling for good luck.

2014-04-05 22.09.18-1small

We love Kentucky!

2014-04-05 21.03.39small

My twin brothers. Spencer got really confused when he would see them together. “One, one, another one, same!”
