Promised pictures of the big week.

Here are the pictures that I promised. The stomach flu has been taking over our house for a while now. Bug was sick for a week. During that week included her birthday. Instead of cake we made jigglers. I thought it turned out pretty cute. Too bad I gave her raviolli for dinner. I didn't know you're not supposed to give a kid tomato sauce when their stomach is upset. Lesson learned!

Sister gave Bug dress up accessories. Monkey is always calling herself a princess. So when Bug put these on she told me over and over that she was the "dween" (queen). She's got this rank thing figured out. She's a smart cookie I tell you.

For Monkey's birthday the next day I tried to make a Cinderella cake. I learned some things, for example the frosting in a can does not work so well. It doesn't stay put.

Here are my cute girls in matching dresses that Aunt Loralee gave them.

That sunday was Conference. It was the first day that we were all feeling better. Which is a good thing, because it was a busy day. Julie and Erik were in town from NY so we got pictures taken with the Calls,

swung on swings,

and had a big birthday party that night with both sides of the family!

During that week we had some friends the Roemmele's move to Utah and our good friend Tina came out to help them. We had a great time and stayed up way too late, but it was so nice to catch up and see how everyone was doing. I can't wait to have some more fun with the Roemmele's in the near future!

The rest of the week was spring break for Maggie and for a couple of days everyone was doing good. I had my first doctor's appointment and the girls got to go hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Thacker and go with Opa to buy seeds for the garden. They loved it. I'll tell you about last weekend in another post.
