Vampidracocat Baby

We read a book years ago about this boy that had a baby sister.  This boy was convinced that his baby sister was a vampire because her teeth came in like fangs... We all laughed and thought...if only that really happened... 

That would be what?? Freaky?? Weird?  Crazy? your thoughts and your words... the Lord has a crazy sense of humor!!! Erica's first birthday came and went...and no teeth for this lady!!! Well, guess what?? She finally got some teeth at 14 months old....but they are not the typical ones that come in first...she has FANGS!!!  We couldn't believe it!  It really is a thing...and our baby is one of them...  She is still cuter than ever, and we love her to death, and she just earned herself a new nickname...Vampire Baby?? Dracula baby??  Cat Baby?  Vampadracocat Baby???  You decide!!!

( you know how hard it is to get a picture of a baby's teeth...wicked hard...just so you know!)


Laura found these cute little munchkins hiding in the dresser!    They were having a blast with each other and flashlights!!! Couldn't resist the cuteness!!!  Oh to be young again!

Happy Easter

Swimming Bathing Beauties

The Easter Bunny brought the kids swimsuits and sunglasses this year!  The kids are all stylin' in their new shades and since the weather has been sooo nice - they have already tried out their new suits on the trampoline with the sprinkler!  It's going to be a good year in the pool!

The Easter Monster

Detric's preschool asked the kids to decorate a milk jug for their Easter Baskets.  Detric wanted a red monster!  It turned out super cute!  He helped design and glue everything on - it was the only monster among a sea of bunnies...but it was the cutest one there if I do say so myself!!!


Lessons Learned

We had a great time at the ward Easter Activity.  And we learned 3 valuable lessons...1.  When the bishop tells you to boil hot dogs and keep them warm in a crock pot - don't do's gross...but hungry people will eat them anyway!  2.  You shouldn't cut sweet potatoes when you have a migraine...Sis. Campbell chopped off the top of her finger and had to go get it sewn back on... and 3.  If you do Pre-Hunt races before the Egg Hunt, it wears out the kids, but adults...don't race the Bishop without stretching or you'll pull something like Matt Dracocardos!!!  Live and Learn!!!

Braceless Birthday Boy

The orthodontist gave Preston a very special birthday present this year!!! He got his braces off on April 10, the day before his big day!! His smile is amazing, straight, and stunning - Preston is oh so handsome.  We can hardly believe Preston is 10... Laura is sad because Preston has now graduated to the webelos den and is no longer part of her bear den...but Preston is definitely ready to do more scouting skills!! This kid is full of fun, snuggles, and personality.  We love you Preston!
