Mason turned 3 years old on Friday. I can't believe how fast the past 3 years have gone by. We celebrated by decorating and opening presents: Mason really loves Spongebob right now and so I made him a Spongebob cake: Mason did not have a nap on Sunday (the day we had ice cream and cake). I sent him in to wash his hands and found him like this:Yep...that's right, he fell asleep on the bathroom floor at 6:00 PM. Obviously, after playing with the toilet paper. Since I didn't want him to stay up until midnight, I woke him up. Mason is really grumpy when he gets woken up. The other kids were really excited about having cake and ice cream. We sang to him even though he was SUPER grumpy. The result:
The kids have had a great spring break. Grandma and Grandpa Burgess are visiting from Utah and we've been able to do some fun things. We've gone geocaching, played games, gone to the park, watched movies, went out for ice cream, etc. On top of that, it's been sunny for most of the week and the kids have been spending endless hours playing with their friends outside.

Doug has been in New York this week with students in the Music Department. They have done a TON of really fun things. He comes home today and hopefully I can post some pictures. If I wasn't 9 months pregnant, I would've considered going with him. I was glad to have my parents in town because I have had labor pains for the past 30 hours and have even gone to the hospital with false labor. After 2.5 hours of contractions 3 minutes apart, my contractions just stopped and they sent me home. I was glad about this because I would really like Doug here AND it was on Mason's birthday that this happened (more info on his birthday later). It's been fun to have the kids home, but I am ready to send them back to school on Monday. :)
Easter was very fun this year because we had lots of family to share it with. My sister and her family only live an hour away and my parents are in town too. So much fun. On Saturday we conducted our traditional egg decorating activity. Mason waiting for his eggs to dye: Lexi with her colored eggs: Kaylee's prized eggs: Jordan Grandma On Sunday, we listened to conference and enjoyed being together. Grandma, Marilee, Daniel, Lexi putting a puzzle together. The finished product: Some of the guys "watching" conference: Doug trying to get everything done before his trip to NY: The Easter Feast: I hope all of you enjoyed your Easter festivities just as much as we did. Happy Easter!
