This is what i woke up to this morning....
YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! Its going to be April in two days!! There was NO snow here yesterday. Grrr. It has been going all day! Here's to hoping once Jeremy graduates we will be going to sunny Florida!

Going to the movies

Last night we had a family date. We took Reese to go see her first movie in the theater. She loved it. She got kinda restless for the last 15 minutes but it was a long kid movie, an hour and a half. We went and saw Horton hears a Who. It was way cute! Reese loved sitting in our laps, she wouldn't stay in her chair and eating her popcorn and dips. It was so much fun we had a blast! On the way home we just danced in the car to Rihanna. My girl is a true southern girl at heart she loves a good beat. It was a great way to end a perfect evening. I love my family and being with them. It was a nice treat to have Jeremy off on a Saturday. That usually doesn't happen so it was nice to be together.

Climbing up the walls

Tonight Reese was crawling on the top of the couch and I kept telling her to get down and be careful. Soon enough I look back over and she is on the window ledge, I try not to over react and I just play with her and let her crawl around up there because hey you are only a kid once right? She had a blast exploring the window ledge and blinds, we just have to watch her because those blinds are super expensive because the window is so big.

ROOAARR! There's a lion at our house!

We took Summer our long haired female cat to get shaved today. Her hair was getting out of control and winter is hopefully over for good so it was time for a cut. We usually get Sam done at the same time but we figured he could wait a bit because he is short haired. I went to pick Summer up and this is what I found...LOL! She get the lion cut which is hilarious but to top it off they put a bow in her hair! LOL!! Ain't she purdy!

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was really nice for us. It was really sweet to see Reese wake up to see her Easter basket. :) Then we had my brother over for dinner. I made a yummy strawberry pie, it was good and light. A perfect spring dessert. Reese really enjoyed it! As you can see!

Easter Bunny and Dyeing Eggs

Today we went to an Easter egg hung with some friends from the neighborhood. We had lots of fun, it was a little chilly but we still had a good time. Reese was so cute with the Easter bunny, she sat in his lap and gave him this little diva look and wouldn't smile at all! LOL! Funny girl, my little diva. We had lots of fun today. We dyed our eggs tonight too, she wasn't so gentle, so our eggs have some "dents" in there shells. She loved dying the eggs! This is the face I get when I start cleaning up. I did say I have a diva right? Afterwards we went and had a fun green bubble bath and read our My First Easter Book.

Rain and Parents VENT!

As many of you know, I am a school crossing guard. Today was the first day of Spring and as Utah would have it we get rain. Nice. So its cold and wet this morning and I get more kids walking to school than ever before. All sorts of new faces. Did these parents not look outside this morning? Not to judge anyone, I know some children have to walk because the parents work and what not. What makes me REALLY mad is when the parent drop the kids off across the street and make the walk the rest of the way to school in the rain and most of them DON'T have coats on! Why cant the parents make ONE right or left turn and drop there kids at the door rather than making them freeze and get all nice and wet before they get to school. This is baffling to me.

I am going to be brave

So here it goes, I figured I should post this on my blog so I don't have to feel the wrath of my mother, LOL. She will say he is stupid but we love him. We probaly seem like the Clampits in our little condo but we make it work. Let me introduce to you the newest member of the LaPierre family Utah edition. Peanut. Our mini dachshund. He is 6 weeks old. Jeremy got him for me and is very excited about finally having a dog. He knew I wanted a brown mini dachshund and he found him and another bonus, he has the sweetest blue eyes. All he wants to do is be cuddled and loved. He is great with Reese and Reese LOVES him. Like our family needed another animal, we do have two cats and a 16 month old but who could resist those baby blues? Welcome to the family Peanut.

My Mom's Visit

My mom was here last week and we had so much fun together. Johnny was here because of work so my Mom and Parker decided to hitch a ride so they all came for a visit last week. Parker loved playing with his "best friend" Jayden. Who is a friend of mines son that lives in our condos. We did a lot while she was here and had a lot of fun! We went to Thanksgiving point dinosaur museum. It was so cool! I loved it! Reese got a little scared during the 3-D movie but so did me and my mom when the world exploded! YIKES! I can't wait to go back to Thanksgiving point for the tulip festival. We also went to go see some snow because it has melted down here in the valley but it did snow while she was here. We also went to the preview aquarium in Sandy, it was OK, but Reese and Parker loved it. Johnnies new favorite restaurant of Utah if Ruby River. We ate there twice and it was really good. Reese was very sad when they left she was crying in the car. We love having them here to visit and we miss them very much already! We love you guys!

Today was just one of those days that I was just happy. Some days even most days seem like it is so busy and hectic that we forget to BE happy. The other night Reese was having a hard time going to sleep so I brought her to the living room and we laid on the couch in the dark just cuddling. She kept kissing me and being SOO sweet. I just laid there and thanked our Heavenly Father for such pure happiness in life. I love her soo much. Money cannot buy you any of this kind of happiness. Once Reese saw the kitties in the window she wanted to play with some so i got in her crib with her and we cuddled. She LOVES it when I am in bed with her. She was so cute rubbing our noses together giving each other Eskimo kisses. HOW SWEET. Then she would try to give more kisses but ended up licking my cheek. I am so thankful for the blessing of such a wonderful and sweet daughter. I love her so much and am so thankful for her in my life. I am truly truly blessed.
