These three girls are a few months apart and each have the cutest personalities. We have Kate on the right, Hannah on the left, and Evanie in the back. Doesn't this make you want to be little again?

It's not my best work, but Mom seems to like it. It's even on the fridge. What a crazy lady.

"Why?" I ask myself that question multiple times a day. I swear I give in to Kate way too easily.
For instance, she loves Go-Gurt. The other day she got into the fridge (yes, she can open the fridge. and no, I'm not happy about it.) and brought out a Go-Gurt. So I open it for her and she eats a little bit. Well, then she gets another one and refuses to eat the one that it open and wants to eat the new one. This went on for awhile, so now I have 4 opened Go-Gurts in the freezer.
I'm thinking I need to learn how to put my foot down.

We went inside Heber C. Kimball's home and went on a tour with a guy(don't remember his name, so we'll call him Bob) on the BYU Ballroom Dance team and his parents. Dustin's step mom asked Bob if he recognized Dustin from the Restoration, and he did. Anyway, after the tour, Dustin and I stayed after because a sister missionary wanted a picture of me and Dustin (why me, I have no idea). When we went outside, Bob was waiting for us and asked Dustin if he served in England. New England, yes. England, no. I guess a couple days ago this kid on the Ballroom Dance Team was telling everyone that his companion was the guy who played Joseph Smith in the Restoration. He had all these stories about tracting and teaching with him. But he served in England and Dustin had never heard his name before. Funny huh? Well, kind of. I feel bad for the kid because now he's going to have to look at the picture of Bob and Dustin and admit that he made it up. So beware, there may possibly be an impostor out there!
This summer we have season passes to Seven Peaks, a water park a few miles from our apartment. Kate loves the kiddie area and also enjoys splashing her mom in the face. This picture is from the first day that we went. She was so exhausted and took an awesome nap that day. I should try to get over there everyday just for that perk alone!
Today I was making bread and Dustin was kind enough to take Kate upstairs to play. After hearing them laugh and jump around, they came down the stairs to get the tent. Dustin wanted to set it up in Kate's room. As you can see, Kate was a big help :)She loved standing on the tent playing with cups while Dustin worked.

Here she is on our patio. She found a rolly polly bug and she's holding him in this picture. Awww...she's being so nice. Oh wait, nevermind, she just threw him down the steps. Hope he's ok.

Me and my baby girl. Can you see how tan she's getting? Got that from me, right?
I had to put this one in. I LOVE MY LITTLE KATERS!! Funny story: The other day we were at the park and there was a little boy, Robbie, at the park. He's a couple months older than Kate, so they played together. I'm talking to his mom, when I glance over at the two and they're kissing each other on the lips. Over and over again. Oh boy. Then they go sit down and Kate starts feeding Robbie little pieces of bark.
Here's my sister, Melanie and little Andy. Isn't he cute? He had a little mullet but Mel cut it off. Not cool.
Here's Kate smothering Andy. She kept kissing him on the face. Noticing a trend???
My dad and just seven of the fifteen grandkids. Such a cute picture.
Kate using a fork.
Mel and Andy's (the big one) dog, Vader. Kate was terrified of Vader when we got to Mel's house in Cedar, but toally warmed up to him the next day. They played fetch together and Vader kept following her around. Maybe we'll get a dog someday. Maybe...if you know what I mean

I don't know if you've seen this commercial, but it's a mom with her two girls making Rice Krispie Treats shaped like eggs and dipping them in chocolate and sprinkles. I thought it was so cute and told Roxy about it. She and her girls came over today to make them with me and Kate. We had a blast and I wanted to take some pics, but the batteries are running low, so they're a little blurry.
Here's a picture of the gorgeous Kyrie. She's three and such a hoot. Here she is enjoying the melted chocolate. These are just a few of the eggs, and also some strawberries. Luckily I got some at the store today, so we got some great dippage out of them. Little Jaycee, just under a year, was a little too young to join us, but she had the job of snacking on the sprinkles. Little sweetheart was so good and didn't fuss once.
I took some pictures of Kate and Roxy, but the pictures were so blurry!! I know you're sad Roxy, but I'm sure I'll get one of you sometime on here.
This morning we took Kate to an Easter Egg Hunt in our complex. I'm waiting for some pictures, but I'll post them when I get them. Kate had no idea what was going on, but she actually found the "golden egg." It was the special egg and had a dollar inside. We felt somewhat bad because we arrived when everyone was finishing up and that was the first one we found. Sweet. Good times.
Easter is so much fun now that Kate is here. I'll post some pics tomorrow of Kate in her dress and her little basket.
And before I forget, Dustin was just promoted to Assistant Manager at Missionary Mall!!! Good Job Dust! Also, he won the sales per hour competition for March and won $200. He's so awesome. I love my Dust. He's an amazing husband and father and I don't know what we'd do without him.

Now that Kate can walk, we love going to the park. Dustin and I will throw a frisbee around and Kate wanders between us. It's awesome. I actually think I got a little sunburnt today from being outside so much. Ok, it's probably in my mind, but that would be sweet. Today Kate and I were walking around the complex and first she found some dog poop to step in. And if that wasn't enough, she kept finding patches of dirty snow and eating it. Yuck. Such a curious little goosie.
Dustin and I had our 2 year anniversary on Tuesday! We weren't able to go out that day, but we went on a date Wednesday. And this is all thanks to Roxy! If you're reading this Roxy, you're the best! We left during the day at 1 and weren't allowed to come back until 5. Apparently Roxy would refuse to open the door if we came back any earlier. We went to Macaroni Grill (one of our favorites), went to the park, and enjoyed the Museum of Art at BYU.
Here are a few pictures of Kate. She's growing up so fast and doing new things every day! This post is getting too long, so I'll talk about it another time.
Ah, here's the diaper on the head. We usually stack 'em up so that there are five or six on her head. And don't worry, the diaper is clean.
Kate and I decided to have a dance party one day. She loves "Human" by The Killers. Here's Kate being a goof and giving a cheezer.
Her new thing is to eat apples. I'll take a bite out of one and then she'll take care of the rest. I bought some Pink Lady apples that are so delicious. The best part about them is that they don't turn brown. This apple she's eating lasted about half a day. Sweetness.
Today I was washing the dishes and Kate was having a fit. I was almost done, so I let her play in the fridge (bad, I know, but it looks really cute). When I turned around, she had taken the tortillas out of the bag and they were all over the kitchen. But, at least she was eating one. I don't know why I let her do these things, but seriously, I just love watching her expore.

Things have been going really well for our little family. It seems like things are getting crazier the older Kate gets. Like for instance, yesterday morning. I was blow drying my hair in the bathroom right next to the living room. Kate was in there and I would check on her often. However, I don't think I did it often enough. When I came into the room, she had chocolate on her face. I was so confused and then remembered that Dustin came home with a little Valentine's Day box with chocolates. She had opened the box and unwrapped a chocolate! I couldn't stop laughing and did what any mom would do. Get the camera. So here she is. It wasn't too bad of a mess.
And yes, she does have a skirt on. It's just hiked up a little.

-Taming of the Shrew Act II, Scene I
No cake in the hair (surprisingly), but we still gave her a little bath in the kitchen sink because the rest of her body was covered! I wish I had a sink like this. Perfect size!
We love Kate so much and can't believe how lucky we are to have her as our daughter. We never thought we could laugh so hard and often as we do now that she's in our family. Every day is a new experience and we look forward to the many more years we have with our angel. Happy Birthday Kate! Mommy and Daddy love you more than you know!
