Moon fun!!!

April has been crazy busy, and I can't believe its almost over!  We started off the month with Little Miss MaCee's birthday... I am still amazed that one year has already passed, I know that all of you may not want to hear the story, but I am going to tell it for my sake!  April 9th 2010, 8:15 I am getting the kids breakfast, my cell phone rings.  It is our social worker, she says, "We have a little girl that was born this morning, her mother wants the agency to choose a family, if you want her shes yours!"  Now I may not be saying that all right, it was kind of a blur after the fact, but ahhhhh I will never forget that PERFECT day!!!  I immediately started preparing our house for a new baby.  Mike had worked the night before and was sound asleep, with no idea that in just a few short hours we would be heading to Salt Lake to meet our sweet little princess that we had only known in our hearts until that point!  As I was caring a load of laundry into our room one time, he opened his eyes, I had to tell him "We are getting our baby GIRL!"  The drive to Salt Lake seemed like a trip around the world FOREVER!  When we walked into the hospital all of the nurses told us that our baby was such a beautiful little girl, I couldn't believe that they were saying "MY BABY" she was ours!  What an amazing feeling when we walked into the nursery I knew it was her, I knew it because I had know her in my heart for soooo long, just wasn't ever able to picture her,  ahhhh seriously a feeling that I will NEVER forget!!!  I got to spend 2 amazing days in the hospital with her, Mike wouldn't share her, every time I wanted to hold her he would say, "She is fine, shes comfy with me!"  I'm telling you this little girl had her daddy wrapped around her finger from the moment that he laid eyes on her!  The rest is history, it has been such an amazing year our 3 boys needed a little sister! 
We stayed Easter Eve with Mike's family in Park City, it was such a fun night!
 I am so horrible I didn't take very many pics of Easter because Mike's mom always takes so many pictures I figured I would just copy hers!  So sorry more Easter pics later!
 Dalyn is such a sweet big brother her is wiping MaCee's hands after she ate her Birthday cake!

 My 1st attempt at making my kids cake!  It turned out pretty cute!
 MaCee before the cake!
 This is how Little Miss talks on the phone, its so cute!  "Hi Daddy"
 We have 2 problems with Dally right now, he steals binkies, and he wants to stop napping, today he stole MaCee's bink & decided to take a nap!
 My cute little ones headed to church with aunt Nikki! Nothing cuter than little ones all dressed up!!!
 I had to bribe the boys to nap while I was sick because I was so exhausted!  This is the 3 of them after I woke up! 
 Since the weather still hasn't been that great, we finally decided to get the tracks out!
