Mac is always surprising me. He's so timid and careful but when it comes to anything that most kids are nervous about, he loves. I can't wait see him in Disneyland!
Then there's gray who jumps off anything and is a walking disaster- is terrified of the slides. - it doesn't make sense to me!
The best part of the night was that there were only 2 other families there and one of them were our friends!
After the fun at Evan's we went to Wallace Station - delicious sandwich's and desserts! We will be going back!

Sunday was Mac's preschool graduation- even though he's going back to preschool next year. The kids performed a couple of songs and Mac's little class signed the pledge of the allegiance. He was so proud of himself!

At 4 months...
- Annie still hates her tummy = rarely does tummy time= has not rolled over yet.
- I get away a couple times a week and it's a real treat when I come home to happy baby - she's a momma's girl!
-I'm the only one who can raise their voice around her without her freaking out.
-she's so "talkative"- coohs all day long
-She weighs 16.2 lbs 95% and is 27.5 inches long-99%
-Even though she's more dramatic than the boys were, she's been easier than the boys. It might be because she sleeps so well (10hours), or that she loves her car seat or that she's an amazing nurser:)

Can I tell you how much I love saying that?!
The boys woke up in the middle of the night and jumped in bed with Drew- love this picture!

I've been pretty lucky to have such wonderful women in my life that have shaped me into the person and mother I am today. Their examples have been priceless.
My mom obviously has played the biggest role in my life and everyday I try to be more like her. She's the most thoughtful person I know, she's taught me how to love and serve others. I try to be spontaneous like her and give gifts and cards to friends and family letting them know how much they mean to me. My grandmas played a huge role in my upbringing. I would spend days at my grandma Heaps house and I've picked up on some things that she did like listen to conference talks when I clean. She still listens to conference talks every night when she goes to sleep and when she cleaned her house she would watch BYU devotionals. She always found ways to invite the spirit into her home. Every Sunday we got to see my grandma McAllister. We would either go over to her house or she came to ours. But no matter where we were we played learning games or plain old card games, she always kept us entertained. I think of her when I'm teaching Mac a new game or reading to the boys. Rita is a great mom, she raised an amazing son and makes for a great mother in law. No matter what's going on in her life she always makes time to listen. I try to remember to just stop and listen to what my kids have to say.I love that I get to be a mom, it's been the biggest blessing in my life. I'm grateful for these and many other women who constantly show me how to be a better mother!

The other night I went to check on Mac and found him asleep. Nothing sweeter than a sleeping child.
Monday a friend came over to show us her new dog! Isn't he adorable! It almost made me like dogs :)...
The boys kept asking me to take their picture. This one was my favorite- Gray with a nervous face and Mac doing- I have no idea what he was doing but in every picture he was holding the broom and making that face.
