Happy Birthday to C Man!!!

So I can't believe that our sweet little boy turned 5 last week!! We had a pretty great Superhero party!! It sure was a lot of work for me but the kids had a great time!! I was a little surprised to wake up to the ground covered in snow but we improvised and everything turned out great! Here are the kids in the garage waiting to spray the bad guys off the tops of their buildings that they decorated. The garage was covered in silly string but it was awesome!!!
 Here are some of the party favor bags that I made!! I thought they turned out pretty cute and it didn't take me too long to make them.
 Here was our awesome city scape backdrop that we were able to borrow from one of my sisters neighbors!! It was so cool and took up a big portion of my wall!! We had a few signs/props for the kids to get their pictures done!! For the world of me I couldn't get a picture of my cute 5 yr old on his special day. He was way to busy playing and did not want to stop for pictures!! Oh well, I tried and hopefully that is worth something!
 Here are the kids by the wall with the capes, masks, and armbands that I made!! This is what took me the longest amount of time to make but they were sure cute!! The capes were reversible and the little man LOVED the wristbands!! He's been wearing them around for weeks. He told everyone that the stars would give you special powers!!
 Here are the sweet little girls with their little capes (just so they wouldn't feel left out) I had enough material left and we thought it would be cute for a here they are. I can't believe how big they are getting!!! They are the cutest little buddies!! 
 My sister, "Shugacher", is the most amazing sign maker, EVER!! She whipped this cute sign up in about an hour!! She is so talented and what is a party without an AwesoME sign? Thanks Cher!!
 Here is one picture of my little guy..not the greatest quality...but hey, we were down in the basement and the lighting is terrible. This is him decorating his building. He obviously dressed himself in his most favorite things...jersey shorts and a t-shirt. He is such a great kid. He is smart and determined. He is tough but very sweet and sensitive. He is a great big brother and helper to me. He is my best sleeper!! He is my most snuggliest child!! I LOVE him to pieces and am so glad I get to raise him!! Love you buddy and Happy Birthday!!

Happy New Year!!!

I can't believe that it is already 2012!! The past year has definitely flown by. The kids are getting bigger and learning so many new things. Our sweet little addition of last year is quickly learning how to keep up with her older brother and sister. We had a wonderful Christmas season, filled with lots of parties, programs, movies and family time.

Here is our sweet new bundle on her blessing day!! She was such a cutie!! The dress is one from my grandma, Bub, that my sisters wore on their blessing day. My sister Jordan also had a cute new daughter last year a few weeks after ours and her little girl was also blessed in it. What a fun thing for them.
Here is a picture of the Crapo Clan minus Luke, who is still in Brazil serving on his mission, on lil Sam's blessing day!!

Greg was able to take the two older kids for a fun filled week down at Newport Beach. Me and the babe stayed home while I recovered from my c section that was followed by a nasty infection. Here are all the Flint cousins with Grandpa and Grandma outside the beach house. I am definitely looking forward to this summer when the entire family will be able to go back to the beach.

So June has been absolutely nuts. We did a lot of family with Luke before he left. Here are a few photos of my little bro. We went swimming a lot the last week he was here, I guess he wanted to get it all in before he couldn't for 2 years. The kids had so much fun going off the diving board and down the slide. Their favorite part was having popsicles in the hammock.Luke's farewell had lots of good food. My cousin, Meredith, made the chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting and fresh raspberries on top. They were to DIE for. I think I ate about a dozen of them because they were so small and tasty. I paid for it that night, I had the worst stomach ache and heartburn, but they were so worth it. Jord made these homemade cheesecakes in lots of different flavors that were delicious. Needless to say, it was a great day. He gave a great talk on honesty, and confessed all his mishaps to my parents. It was pretty funny. He always surprises me with how well of a speaker he is.
Luke and my grandma Micks for a little photo shoot.
Luke and O. She had so much fun that day I hardly saw her and she did not want her picture taken.
The Boys, the two buddies. The little man loves this guy.
Cher made a great sign & here is Luke with my parentals.
One last crazy family picture (minus my broinlaw, Bryan, he got called into work at the last minute). I think we took about 25 pictures and none of them are that great, but hey, at least we tried. I'll post some more pictures of the great cake, Meredith and Jordan made and of the final hugs.

O had her graduation party last week at Carefree Kids Preschool with Miss Cindy!! She had such a FUN class and had a great year. The last day they had a "trip to Hawaii." It was so great!! She is now ready for kindergarten!! I can't believe how fast she has grown up.
Here she is with her teacher and her preschool diploma!!
A fun picture with her carpool buddies!!
After her graduation, she had her spring gymnastics show. She did a good job and has learned so much. The only picture I took of her turned at really dark and is not even blog worthy, so you can just imagine. right? right!! After spring show, we headed up to the cabin for Memorial Day Weekend. The beginning of fishing on Henry's Lake is always CRAZY!!! It was a cold and wet weekend but the boys and Gibby had fun fishing. My nephew from Texas flew up for the weekend and we had such a fun time with him. Greg caught a pretty good sized fish and I tried to find the picture but he already downloaded them to his work computer so I'll have to have him send them to me to post. He had a good time.

Running Around Like a CHICKEN with it's head cut OFF!!!

I have been absolutely CRAZY running around. May has been a blur but we have had a FUN time. O had a preschool field trip out to Wheeler Farm. It was pretty cold but we had a great time. The kids loved seeing the baby animals.
Next, came Mother's Day!! I LOVE being a mostly stay at home mom!! It is so much Fun to watch my kids grow up and see them grow and develop. Here's our attempt at a picture on Mother's Day. I feel so blessed to have so many mothers and grandma's influence in my life and my kids. We are lucky to live so close to all of them and be able to spend so much time with them all. They have all impacted my life through their wonderful examples.
That following week, Greg and I celebrated our ninth anniversary!! I can't believe how fast the time has flown. He is an amazing husband, father, uncle, and friend. I love everything he does for me and our family!!
The next week was my bro Luke and sis Cher's birthdays!!! For Cher's birthday we took all the kids to Kangaroo Zoo. It was so out of control when we got there. There was some school bus with a bunch of crazy, barely supervised kids. After they left, it got much better. The kids had a BLAST!! It took little Berk some time to warm up to everything. They had slush puppies there and the kids took a little break to enjoy their slushies!!
O took this picture of Cher and I. She turned the BIG 3-0. She is such a great sister, aunt, mother and wife. My kids always love going to her house.
O and Addi going down a slide. O is such a big helper whenever we take all the 3 yr olds.
The little man cruisin head first down the slide.
And FINALLY today we finished spring soccer. It was cold and a little rainy today but we had a great day. O finally scored 2 goals and her cheering section went WILD!!! We had a great season and she went from not wanting to go onto the field to scoring some goals so it was great.
The 'Purple Dragons' with their trophies and water bottles!!!
