Last night when Canyon was saying his prayer he said, "Please bless mommy can find a job so we can go back to Kathy's."
My 3 year old hates having me home! How sad is that? All I ever wanted was to stay at home with my kids and then when it happens this is the thanks I get! :)
Canyon - gotta love him anyway.

Dinosaur Museum

Yesterday we went down to BYU to the Dinosaur Museum just West of the Stadium.

This picture of my munchkins makes me giggle. :) I picture myself saying "Canyon, Savanna hold still. Canyon, grab Savanna's hand and make her stand still!"

Crazy Busy Week

Last week was such a crazy busy week! It all started on Monday when I got laid off from my job where I've been for 4 years! Its ok though, I kind of knew it was coming because of how slow its been with this economy. They had to let 3 of us go and now there are only 4 people left at ORT. When I started in 2006 there were 15. This economy is so crazy! Anyway, so I am enjoying staying home with the kiddos right now but still keeping my open because I really need to be working to help take care of our little family. So, if anyone knows of any good jobs out there... keep me in mind! :)

My sister Natalie and her cute little kids came into town on Monday as well so all though I was sad about losing my job I was actually kind of happy because I got to spend the week with my sister and my mom and go do fun things every day!

Tuesday we packed up the kids and wend to the Living Planet Aquarium in Salt Lake. It was so fun and so busy because of Spring Break. The kids loved it though. They had fun petting the Manta Rays and seeing the sharks. They have a new addition to the aquarium this year with lots of new animals and they even had penguins! They were awesome!

On Wednesday we took the kids to Kangaroo Zoo and it was fun too! Canyon was running all over that place and he told me that he never wanted to leave. Savanna thought she was as big as everyone else as usual and she had fun going up and down the big slides with Uncle Bryce.

On Thursday we went to Bonneville Park and had a picnic. It was a really nice day outside and the kids had fun playing in the sunshine.

Friday morning we all left to Idaho to see Nikki gradudate from the nursing program. Scott wasn't able to come up with us because of work so Canyon and Savanna and I got to ride up with my parents which was nice. We went to Nikki's Nursing Graduation on Friday night and then to dinner at chuck a rama later. My poor kiddos have been sick for almost 2 weeks now and Mr. Canyon of course had a fever the whole time we were at dinner and wouldn't eat anything. He went right to sleep when we got back to the hotel and felt a lot better the next day.

Saturday morning we went to Nikki's BYU-I graduation where she got to walk and get her diploma. The kids were a little restless through the beginning of it but luckily both fell asleed halfway through. After graduation we went back to Nikki's apartment and packed up her things to move her home. The kids did pretty good on the drive home and were happy to see there daddy!

Sunday we had a family dinner at my Grandma's since my sister and her family were in town and we had a birthday cake for Canyon since everyone was together. I told him it was a practice for Saturday and he was fine with that of course!
And that concludes our Crazy Busy Week!!

This Easter my kids and I were sick :( but we didn't let it stop us from going to Grandmas anual Easter Egg Hunt. Canyon had fun finding eggs with daddy and Savanna was content to let people put eggs in her basket for her. It was a fun day as usual!

Happy Birthday Baby Chickee!!

Better late than never, right?
Our baby Savanna is one!! She turned one on Thursday, March 25th and we had two birthday parties last weeks in her honor! Last Monday we had a party for her at my mom's house and it was so much fun! She was so cute and she did so good opening her presents. She started crying a few minutes after she started eating her cake but I think it was because she was tired and she had just had enough of everything.
On thursday we had another party at Chuck E. Cheese for her and my cousing Eric's twin girls who share the same birthday as Savanna. It was really fun and Savanna liked standing by the stage watching the Chuck E. Chees band. Later she fell and got a bloody nose but other than that it was great!!!
We love our baby girl and don't know what life would be like with out her!
