Eater Sunday.

Happy Easter.
We now have fights over who gets to hold Norah in pictures :)
Today was one of those days!
Luckily we spent the entire week studying the life of the Savior leading up to Easter so I didn't feel like I had to cram it all in today.

That is the only question.
Who on EARTH decided this was a good background for school spring photos.  I burst out laughing when I saw them.  
{after some investigation I found out the principle chose it}

First lost tooth: Bodie.

Little man lost his first tooth and that calls for some cute photos of that new smile.
Love my Bodie.
 The tooth literally was LOST!
Apparently Bodie put the tooth in a "really safe place in my bedroom on the carpet" and I just so happened to vacuum that room while he was at school today.
Tooth lost.
Bodie didn't seem to care.  He didn't even care about not putting his tooth under his pillow and getting $$ for it.
 Now if he could just lose that dang upper tooth that has had a cavity drilled out of it and been filled three times but is yet again missing the filling ... I refuse to pay to get it filled a fourth time.

Love these two!
They are three weeks apart.

March according to my phone.
Bodie's 6 year-old well child check up with Dr. Haderlie.
Our only real concern with Bodie is his lack of eat {besides chocolate milk and bacon} - so before his appointment I called and talked to the nurse and asked her to give Dr. Haderlie the heads up on my concern and that I waned HIM to bring it up with Bodie so I could just sit quietly and not be the parent "tattling".  I snapped the above picture right when Dr. Haderlie asked Bodie if I was a good cook, if he eats and what he likes to eat.  Bodie was SHOCKED to hear this coming from the doctor without me saying anything.  It packed more of punch coming from the doctor without any prompting from me :)

Checking Bodie and Pete's growth.
Cute little girl.
I love when I get Pete out of his bed and he is sitting waiting like this!
