Happy Easter

This Easter was a fun one for the Evans' family. Below we have a bunch of pictures to explain how the day went...it was full of fun that is for sure.

Grandma Evans got Katie a pretty dress for Easter and we had to put a picture of it up for all to see. At the moment Katie would not smile so this was the only decent picture we got.
Here is little...well not so little Paul in his church clothes. We took him to his two month appointment and he weighed 13 pounds 14 ounces. He has gained almost five pounds! He was 24 inches long as well. He is growing rapidly. We love him!

More cute pictures of Paul that I couldn't resist putting up. Oh, today we have to announce that Paul rolled from belly to back twice on the bed this morning. He is SO talented. I have to put the little disclaimer that he rolled towards me so the bed was slanted just a little bit, but he was working SO hard.



Katie participated in two Easter egg hunts. She had so much fun at the first one we did one at our place for just her and her friend Ella. After they found all of the eggs we let the two little girls fly a kite. It turned out to be quite the adventure.

As you can see we let both of the girls fly the kite all by themselves. Which wasn't a big deal because the kite only cost us a dollar. So if we lost it no big deal. Well I guess we asked for it because Katie let it fly!

When she let go of the kite it flew over the top of our building and the end got caught in the tree as you can see. What you can't see is the power lines on both sides of the kite. The string go t caught on the power lines on one side of the road and the kite itself would barely miss the power lines on the other side of the street. Well the kite flew by itself for about 15 minutes before the string broke and all was well again. Luckily nothing bad happened...but I have to say that the kite turned out to be well worth the dollar.

Random Fun...






These are just a few pictures of the kids while they were sick. I know they don't look it but trust me they were. I don't know if this is how it is with all kids but mine try so hard to be happy even though they are feeling crummy. We have gone through a huge box of tissues and loads and loads of laundry taking care of the sick ones. I am happy to report that they are both recovering and now we are just waiting for the house to recover...I have let the place slide over the last week and now it's time for a cleaning overhaul.

Scott taught Katie a New Trick

video
So the last two weeks have been pretty difficult because both of the kids have been sick. But we were able to get out and play a little bit and Scott taught Katie how to slide down the slide with her eyes closed. She is so funny because she doesn't know that she can close her eyes without touching them so she sticks both of her hands to her face and holds her eyelids down with her fingers. Enjoy!

Baby Blessing Day

Hello all,

I was minding my own business playing Mahjong, a game my dad loves, and Tiffany kept nagging me to post something about Paul's blessing this last Sunday. Well, I wasn't in the mood to write this, so that is why I am telling you this, so if you find that I am not on my A game, then you know why. It isn't that I didn't want to write about it, its that I didn't want to write it right now, at 11:59 at night, when both kids are sick, and I have to be up for a cannery assignment at 8:00. But alas, I am writing.

Well, my family, all but Brian, Natalie, and Kyrie were able to come up for the weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. My dad got off work at 10:15, and my family picked him up from work sometime in the 11 o'clock hour, and they were on their way, to drive all night to Boise. Well, that plan lasted only a few hours when they fell asleep halfway through the trip, thankfully they stopped the car before they fell asleep. We spent Saturday over at the church playing games from basketball to football to hide and seek with Joseph (He mostly wanted to hide and didn't want to be seeked). All in all we spent nearly 6 hours at the church, fun time.
Isn't he cute? He is wearing the same Stellar one-piece jumpsuit I wore when I was blessed, pretty cool stuff if you ask me. The blessing was nice, it was just family in the circle with the Bishop. I asked the Bishop right before the blessing if he invited himself or if we needed to do it. He said a member of the Bishopric had to be in the circle and he was inviting himself. That wasn't so bad, he's a great guy.
After church we took some pictures, and here are just two of them. Here is the first grandson on the Evans side that will carry on the family name, pretty cool. Gooooooo birthright! Those guys look like they should be on TV. If you had to say who had better hair, who would you say? Keep in mind whose blog this is. If you look closely, my dad's hair is flat on top. That is because when he was little his younger brother dropped a Tonka truck on his head from the top bunk, and it made part of his head flat, and apparently he never recovered. As for me there is a perfect dome shape, not to mention the wavy texture of the hair. I guess I pretty much decided for you. :) p.s. I'm not vain.
And last, but certainly not least, our first family picture that can actually be called a family picture. Feel free to print this picture off and put it up on your fridge or in your wallet. Man, that is one cute family. I hope all of you are doing well. Love you all.
