April 2013

We got to live with my parents for a month instead of a week :)
Steve stayed in a hotel during the week and with us on the weekends.
Steve is enjoying his new job and we are glad that he is busier here!
Alexa says she loves me all the time.
She sings sweet songs to Bennett that she makes up. Usually they include that she loves him because he has blue eyes like her.
Alexa dresses herself, gets herself ready for bed, helps clean, she's so grown up.
She sings "sweep sweep nightingale" when she's cleaning. (Like the Cinderella song.) 
Alexa is concerned about privacy.
We finally got the keys to our house on April 26th! We painted the upstairs and cleaned the carpets and moved in most of our things on April 30.
Alexa is worried about saying bad words and lying.
Steve has ended up with more work than he thought he was going to get in April and May. He'll be officially full time in June.
Alexa is super friendly. She makes friends immediately at the park.
Alexa has adjusted just fine to her new bedroom, she's actually been sleeping in. Bennett, on the other hand, has been waking up at least once per night. I'm sure he'll get over it soon, I hope!

The pool at The Summit.

A lot of playing in grandma's toy room.

Tennis.


  
Grandma taught her about the "turban"

Several play dates with St. George friends!



  
Helping grandma in the kitchen.

A visit to Las Vegas for Steve's work party.
  
Out to eat at Red Robin. Bennett went crazy over the balloons. Laughed and laughed.

Dawson participated in the Great Race at Dixie State. He had to race through the mud.


We've spent a lot of time at Home Depot!

It has been so much fun with you! We miss you now you've moved in, but it is great to know you are only a short drive away!
