36 weeks

at my dr. appt. we realized the baby is breech.  so here's to hoping the lil' guy decides to turn.  i was ready to have this kid natural and was kind of excited not be induced this time.  but really, there are worse things than a c-section.  so we'll just wait and see what happens!!

Katelyn and Basketball

katelyn wasn't 100% sure she wanted to play, but after her first game she decided she liked it better than socer!  the 1st game was hilarious because the ref only called out of bounds.  so some of the girls would pick up the ball and run and all the parents would be yelling "DRIBBLE"!!  i guess the ref will start calling more things later in the season.  katelyn was really aggressive, which made her daddy proud!

Princess Samantha

Sam is by far our girliest girl.  she was invited to a birthday party and was supposed to wear a princess dress-up.  that was not good enough for her.  she wanted her hair done and make-up on too!  i have to say... i think she is BEAUTIFUL!

Annie's Actual Birthday!!

i still can't believe annie is 8!!  i remember her "birth" day like it was yesterday.  she has grown up to become the funniest girl!  she makes us laugh all the time.  she can be very sensitive too.  she doesn't put up with anyone's crap, and if her friends are being naughty she's perfectly fine staying home and playing with her little sisters.  most days she is a HUGE help because she does stay home and play with them.  since her birthday was on sunday,  she woke up she came and crawled on our bed and we let her open her presents before church.
kristina and fam gave her a journal and a new card game.
we gave her the traditional new scriptures.
grandma and grandpa s. gave her a scripture bag and $8.
her sisters gave her a magic 8 ball... which was her FAVORITE gift!!  hahaha
annie also got birthday money from grandma and grandpa o., which she used to buy an new razor scooter.  she also got birthday money from grandma helen, which i used to buy her new shoes!!
All ready for church.
waiting for her cake... which we did not eat!
the sullivan family has a terrible tradition of having the ugliest cakes ever!  unfortunately this year annie's cake was no exception!  she's so sweet though... she kept saying, "it looks good except for the cracks and stuff."  :)  luckily we've been addicted to sherbet and 7-up floats lately so she was fine with not eating the cake!!

annie is getting baptized on april 9th.  she was willing to wait so we could do her baptism and eric's blessing the same day.  it will be more convinient for family/friends who are traveling to make it.

Annie's Birthday Party

8 is GREAT!
 Annie and her friends decorated cupcakes...

 Then we put on press-on nails!!!

 Annie's friends were great... she got a lava lamp, about 10 gift cards to RD's (local hamburger/ice cream joint) for things like 1 free rootbeer float or a chocolate sunday, a zuzu pet, and a balloon w/ $10 in the card.  every night annie has derek take her to RD's to cash in one of her certificates!

i got up at about 7am to start making cupcakes and decorating.  it was an exhausting day, but i really wanted annie to feel special.  turning 8 is big deal!

Snow in AZ

you really can't beat the weather in Page.  it doesn't get TOO hot in the summer and it doesn't get TOO cold in the winter.  i think the girls have already forgotten the snow from our days in omaha.  it barely sprinkled snow and sam and lex ran out to lick it up off the tramp... it didn't stick anywhere else.  and really... the little speckles on the tramp hardly count!!!  notice their bare feet?!?!
