Random Blog Update/Andy's Baptism!!

So I am not good at keeping up with this whole blog thing. It has been almost a whole month and I have not posted anything about Andy's baptism and that the tooth fairy has been overly busy this past month. Let's start before Andy's baptism.

We headed down to downtown Seattle to get a closer look at the space needle and go get some yummy food down at Pike's Market. We love that place. We don't go hardly often enough. We tried fresh churds, Yummy!! and I bought some really pretty tulips. Can you say I love Spring and it could not come fast enough. The boys also had to play with a crab. Boy, did the owner get a little upset when Anson thought it would be cool to pick it up. Soo, we moved on. We bought our yummy doughnuts that have a line around the corner on Saturday, but are worth the wait. We also tried the best apples ever and even found out they came from the state, what, not Mexico. We were shocked. They are called Honeycrisps and they are do die for. We ended the day in a latino market where the kids had to have those chocolate marshmellows on a stick, sorry, the name isn't coming to mind. It was a good day!!

Andy was baptized on his birthday, the 6th. My folks flew in on the Thursday before and stayed the weekend. Thanks Mom and Dad for coming. We had fun!! Andy was so excited to get new scriptures, bag, and pin. He wanted to go to the buffet place after, since he thought it was so cool that we could eat whatever we wanted and all the ice cream you wanted too. Yes, we have hit the eat, eat, and eat, stage with that boy. It was a special day and I hope he remembers it always. He is very fond of his Dad and was glad that he could have his Dad baptize him.

Ok. so the twins are loosing teeth all over the place. They went to the dentist and now all the teeth are falling out. I know it isn't their fault. Anson now has holes on top and two holes on the bottom. He is trying for more, but I think that is going to be it for a while. I hope. Aaron has decided to follow suit and play catch up. He has a hole on top and two on the bottom as well. He is working on the other on top. Needless, to say, the tooth fairy has been hard at work.

We have also been enjoying some wonderful weather. It has been sunny and in the 50s, which is cold for most of you in Arizona, but that is almost perfect weather here. I know we are babies now. We will probably melt when we go south for the summer. Good thing for a/c. We managed to get outside this weekend and clean up the yard a little. Can I say it is nice to have kids that are old enough to do some of the weeding!!! I guess that means I am getting old or I really don't enjoy that job. Andy and Maya did a great job helping out. We planted some tulips in the back and are hoping it doesn't decide to freeze anytime soon. Cross your fingers.

We continue to keep busy with school, work, and kids. I have added Cub Scouts to my list of things to do. Andy is going strong trying to get his Wolf already. We have to remind him to slow down. I wish I could tell myself that somedays. Well, I guess that is it for now. Can't promise I will blog before another month, we shall see.

The kids all look so grown-up! No, the snow hasn't started melting here yet. We were above zero (but below 30) for almost three weeks, but it got cold again last night. From what I hear we'll still have cold weather through March and part of April. May is the magic month :) and I can't wait. At least the sun has been shining a little more. We're heading to AZ in April. I'm so excited! I'm going to sit outside ALL DAY!

Congrats to Andy on the baptism. And I love all your "toothless wonders that's what Adam would call them)!!!!!" So fun :)
