Happy Birthday Lisa Ward

Happy Birthday Lisa! You are now a quarter of a century! We hope that Sam had a great day planned for you. We are sad that we couldn't see you and your family this weekend during Rosanne's Graduation. We should get together soon!

Enjoy your big day!

Justin hits the big 30!

Happy Birthday Justin! I can't believe you are in your thirties. What an oldie!
We hope you have a fantastic birthday celebration today. I am sure Amber got you something for that fish tank of yours. Can't wait to find out!

We love Nursury!

This is the entertainment we get each Sunday after church. We put Owen in his highchair to feed him some lunch and he falls asleep eating. He plays so hard in Nursury every week he can't even stay awake long enough to finish lunch, but he sure puts forth a good effort. It is so entertaining! At the end of this video he is calling for his cute.

Happy Birthday Payson!

Happy Birthday Payson! The ripe ole' age of 7! We hope your Pirate Party is a lot of fun today. It was fun to see you last weekend for Easter. You better practice on your new rollerblades so the next time we come visit Kevin and I can roll around your neighborhood with you. Have a great day Payson!

We had a fun and eventful Easter Weekend in Idaho Falls. We went down on Saturday afternoon for a barbeque and Easter Egg Hunt at Jarom and Elena's home. We almost had all the grandkids together...we were just missing Katie's four girls. After the hunt we all went to help Emily and Brandon move from Rexburg, ID to Shelley, ID. They have a great new apartment. They also have a park nearby so after moving them we headed over to the park so the kids could play (and the men could have a swing-jumping contest...boys will be boys).

We spent the rest of the evening in Idaho Falls with everyone hanging out at Mom and Dad's house, helping Mom clear her booth at the Mini Bazaar. At about 9pm the boys (including Dad) decided to go "fake paintballing" and came home with welts all over their bodies...especially Dad's. But, they couldn't have been happier and would have gone the next day if it wasn't Sunday.

We stayed the night there and joined Mom and Dad, Natalie, Emily & Brandon, Melissa, Blake, and their boys for church in my old homeward. I always enjoy going back there and seeing familiar faces. Then...we had a spectacular dinner with everyone that evening. Complete with potatoes, ham, and PIES! What a great weekend! It was so fun to spend time with everyone and eat good food.

Here are some pictures from our festitivies. I am trying to get better at remembering to do this!

Happy Birthday Sarah Ward!

Happy Birthday Sarah! It was great to be able to see you and your boys this past weekend in Logan, UT. We hope to be able to visit you in Colorado sometime soon. I'm not sure what your plans are for your BIG day, but we hope you do something extra special for yourself. Aaron will have to make up for being gone on your birthday when he get's home!

Jamis is 4!

Another one of those handsome Murdoch boys is celebrating a birthday! Happy Birthday Jamis! I hear you are having a dinosaur party today. I hope you have a lot of fun! I had to include TWO pictures of you because I love this one of you and Grandma by the pumpkins and the camping picture. You are a handsome boy! Hope this is your best birthday so far.

Happy Birthday Staci and Rosanne!

Happy Birthday Staci (March 31st) and Rosanne (April 1st)!

I can't believe that your birthdays are only a day apart! I hope you don't mind sharing a spot on my blog this weekend. We hope you both had a terrific birthday! We wish we could have spent it with at least one of you since you live so close (Staci in Rexburg and Rosanne in Provo), but I am sure you had a fun-packed celebration without us. We love being able to see more of you while you are at school. I apologize that my pictures are a little bit old (I guess I need to be better about using my camera). BUT...we love you and wish you both a happy birthday.
