It's Spring!

Some pictures we took tonight playing in the yard. Jenna's 1st pigtails.

What a beautiful day. Spring is such an amazing time. The frogs in the pond tonight, the baby cows, raking, ohhh all the things that remind me of spring.
Our trip to Las Vegas was really fun. It was beautiful out there. We went to three shows and loved them all. It was nice to have a break from everything at home and just relax.
Last weekend we went downstate for Jason and Leeanne's baby shower. We had a good time. I got to plan the games, I know you are all surprised.
Sunday is Jenna's 1st Birthday party. I feel I am not ready and have lots left to get ready. I know it will all come together.
We went to visit my great grandma colegrove last week. She is 94, and still lives alone. I am amazed at her strength. You should see how clean her house is.
I am also a little excited about graduation which is next week. So, thankful to be done.

I'm leaving on a jet plane....

Tomorrow we leave for Las Vegas. I am almost packed. Not only did I have to pack myself and Dustin for the trip, but I had to pack the kids to stay at James and Graces. I think they have 10 x's more stuff then mom and dad.
I am very excited for the trip. It will be nice to be in sunny weather, spend some time with my family, and alone with my husband.
The house is also making some progress. We have the heat tubes laid in the house and the garage doors up. The cement should be poured sometime this month.

We participated in Earth Hour on Saturday night.

Here is what the website has to say about Earth Hour.

Earth Hour, run by WWF, the conservation organization, is a global climate change initiative which calls on individuals and businesses around the world, to turn off their lights for one hour on Saturday March 29 2008 between 8 pm and 9pm.The aim of the campaign is to express that individual action on a mass scale can help change our planet for the better.The event itself will clearly demonstrate in participating cities, the connection between energy usage and climate change, showing that we as broader community can address the biggest threat our planet has ever faced.

Not, only did we turn our lights off but Dustin decided to turn the whole breaker off. Since we have electric heat in the cabin, it got pretty cold.

In other news
Mother Earth played an April fools joke on us and decided to dump wet, heavy, snow, thankfully it is melting today.

I am tired of dealing with a two years olds picky eating. The only thing I can say he likes is cheese!
