Open House~ Jump House~ And Our House

The last few days were all about Houses!! First off we had the boys open house at school this past week. Our school chooses to do the open house in March instead of May or June. That way, the kids don't feel like after open house the school year is over and they are done learning. We start the night with dancing and music and then we have In and Out Burger and then visit the classrooms. I took pictures in Ethan's room but totally forgot to in Owen's room. So, I posted a few pics but there were not many.

Dad, Mia and Ethan, Mom and Ethan, Owen and Ethan, Cousin Kaitlyn (who is in the same class) and Ethan)

Now onto the other House. My friend Tenderly did a party for her kids at a bug Jumpy warehouse. It was a blast and the kids and the adults had so much fun!!! Mia has absolutely no fear!! She was all over the place getting bounced onto her head, back and everywhere. She would jump up laughing and keep going. I, as well as every other parent in the place were amazed at how tough she was. I too was totally amazed. I know she is a tough little cookie but I could not believe how tough she was in the jumpies. There is a video of it-- take a look-- it is to funny!!

I think this is a cute picture of the Kids and I!!

Now onto our house! The kitchen is totally functional and I am loving it. There are a few things that Kevin plans on doing when he and the boys return from the Grand Canyon (they are going there during the boys spring break in the RV with all our camping friends-- Mia and I have to stay because my spring break is the following week--ugg). Once he returns he will put the crown moulding on the tops of the cabinets, the bottom of the cabinet mouldings that hide the under cabinet lighting and the back splash. That is about all there is left at this point. He left the doors off the under the sink cabinet because when he was installing the plumbing a little water leaked and he wanted to make sure it was totally dry before he puts the doors on. He is actually putting the doors on as we speak. So, other than what I mentioned, the kitchen is pretty much done. I am just in love with it and am really enjoying cooking on our new appliances. We have Easter at our house tomorrow so I will get to do a lot of cooking-- I'll post pictures tomorrow!

The picture of you and the kiddos is really nice.
