Mark's parents came back in March and we had a lot of fun. One night we played Glee forever. It was so fun, we were never able to get Wayne to pick up the microphone but that would've been an awesome sight! Mark was competitive as ever and had to beat my score at everything...and he did! GRRRRR. He is good at everything I swear! It's just not fair, I just hope our kids get that gene!

We have Church at 1pm now..Let me tell you that is such a hard time with my kids! So I can't really get them dressed until after they have had lunch otherwise we end up changing again! So this happened to be one of the few Sundays that everything went smoothly. Everyone ate one time and we had a few extra minutes to kill before leaving, JJ thought it would be funny to run with Bryn up and down the hall. Oh and she was right it was HYSTERICAL! They both loved it. Then Brecken decided he needed a turn! So we spent our extra time watching the kids play together and have a great time together. It was one of those Mom moments when you sit back and say Wow I really LOVE my job.
By March we were all just stir crazy the weather had still been so crappy and cold! So we usually like to go places on the weekends so the kids can have fun. I thought "Oh good because Mark is with me I can actually take my camera this time, well no such luck right after we got there he got a call and then he was running around playing games! I have to admit I LOVE him SO much for that..the fact that he always wants to have fun, but there are times that it drives me crazy too! It's ok I am sure I drive him crazy sometimes too! Jaylee asked if we could bring Torie with us, so of course we said yes. It is weird when Torie is around MJ and Jaylee get along better.
Brecken wanted in on the LOVE.
Three of my cousins came up to visit us. They brought their kids and some how I only managed to get a picture of The D Man.. The kids had so much fun playing together. We had lunch a BK with a fun play place and then went to the Children's Museum, I usually don't take my camera because it is so hard to run after kids and take pictures! So needless to say I was glad to have a few pictures.
There are so many fun things for the kids to do here. I wish it wasn't so big so I could keep better track of my little monkeys! It's like they all say OK on 3 go a different direction! I love them so much and the fun craziness they bring to my life.
Brecken and Jaylee really wanted to catch a leprechaun so they decided to set up a trap for him!
This is a letter JJ put by the front door.
you can take the gold
I Love You Leprechaun
This was the net trap..They had taken foil and other shiny objects and put is under the net. The leprechaun left a return note letting them know that he stole their gold and that he is very sneaky. The kids woke up so excited to had gotten a note from him it was so cute.
We had a very festive St. Patty's day! We made leprechauns. Had a puppet show with them.
Jaylee got to play with her BF Torie. These girls LOVE Each other! It is so cute. They always want to have each other over for dinner or to play it's so funny.
We delivered our yummy cookies...The kids went to Connie and Chucks and he thought they were so cute he had to take his own picture!

Well way back in March he turned 3! My mom put together a party for him, Breckens requests were balloons and candles that's all he wanted! Oh and a cake with cars.
He was so excited to have plates with trains on them! It was sooo cute he kept saying "oh these fo my birfday?" I love his little voice. He reminds me of the little rabbit on Robin Hood.
The part that Brecken waited for all day! The candles! We got trick candles and he seriously blew them out until they were just wax on the cake.
And this is Hyde

Mark and I got to spend the first weekend in March in Chicago together! It was a blast!
It was so fun to be just us and be able to hold hands and just pay attention to each other! I love Mark so much and I am so grateful for all that he does for our family. I am also so grateful my mom watched the kids for us!
