It has been a very eventful couple of weeks.
This kid started Kindergarten.
And, as you can see, is about to start dance classes.
Thanks for the hand-me-down leotards and shoes, Kiley!
We'll call these the "before shots."
All the kids (with teeth) went to the dentist for the first time.
They were all very brave.
And this kid
got his first blessing.
And refused to grin his huge baby grin for the camera all weekend long.
This was as close as I could get.
Thanks for the blessing outfit Grandma! She made it out of the leftover material from one of the twins dresses!
My sister and her family of yayhoos were here from Pittsburgh for the blessing, and my mom flew in again. I was surprised how much it meant to me to walk into the sacrament meeting room and realize that a whole row full of my family was there to see our boy get blessed. We were in Utah for the girls' blessings, and took for granted how wonderful it was to have so many loved ones around to witness those sweet occasions.
I'm really glad they could come. Even if they are a bunch of yayhoos.
And last but not least- today Zach and I turned eight.
To celebrate, we went to Wicked. I loved it! The music wasn't my favorite, but I loved the story and how wonderfully G-rated it was. Awesome! We've unconsciously made it a tradition to go to musicals on our anniversary. Which I think is appropriate, considering how we met:)
Happy Anniversary, bun.
