Cool Dude Parker

This kid might not eat much, but put a lollipop of any kind in his hand and it will be gone in a matter of minutes. And of course, you can't eat a lollipop without your cool dude sunglasses on!

Olivia being Olivia

The one thing she and Emma definitely share in common is their love of books. If we can't find Olivia, or it's gotten a little too quiet, you can bet she's sitting on her floor "reading."
Olivia maybe little, but her shoe obsession has already taken shape.

One of her new favorite places to hang out.
She LOVES to rough house and "fight" with Aidan. She's kind of a beast and can definitely hold her own, even though he's 4.5 years older.

Valentine's Day

How do you spend Valentine's Day when you have four kids ages 6 and under? On the couch eating chocolates and playing on the iPad, that's how.
I was able to make some Valentine yummies for Matthew, though. He got a cherry pie, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and Martinelli's sparking cider. Once the kids went to bed we watched a movie and gorged ourselves on lots of desert. It wasn't fancy, but it was fun!

Every time Matthew and I go to the Temple, we always stop by to visit Matthew's grandmother. I love this picture of Matthew and GranMarie!
One of the best women I have ever had the privilege to know and love!
And no trip to Gilbert/Mesa would  be complete without eating at my favorite restaurant, Cafe Rio. Not the most flattering picture of me, but look at that salad!!
