Party, party, party

Life in Utah is just way too much fun. School is in full swing now (Alyssa finally spent a day inside learning rather than outside playing soccer) and Amber's started dance, Alyssa's in piano (she takes hip hop and gymnastics at school) and Christian starts basketball in a couple weeks. I think we have had a birthday party a week this last month. These kids are getting spoiled!
Our nephew Ayden turned 6 and wanted a pie fight/waterballoon fight for his party. It was funny watching all the parents try and convince the kids it was okay to hit people with the whipped cream and that it was fun. My girls did pretty well until the end and Amber got one right in the face. It was more fun watching.
Alivia has turned into my big helper since she's the oldest at home and she is starting to watch TV. She loves Little Einstiens and can sing all the songs and pats her legs just like them. It's so cute. And Soran is huge! I can't believe that less than 5 months ago she was inside me. She is loving solid foods and cries if I don't feed her a little of what's on my plate. Scott is so excited as we are able to throw out all the baby stuff that is no longer used and won't be needed anymore. I must admit I haven't felt any pangs of sadness either, but I'm sure I will. When I kiss her chubby cheeks I am sad to think it will be my last.
After running some labs, I found out I get to keep my kidney, which is great news. I have surgery coming up soon and I can't wait to get this stint out. It's driving me crazy. The doctor told me I didn't have to take the medication I was on for it and I have so much more energy now. I can almost keep up with taking care of all the kids.
Scott is loving his accounting internship. He's in such a good mood all the time now. It's been great. Between his 2 jobs and school he stays pretty busy. Good thing I don't need him. Just kidding. I need him around sometimes.
