LOVE this baby! Seven months she has been in our lives and our whole family has been smiling ear to ear and in love with this bundle of joy. I don't think I've ever known a happier baby than Althea. She has a smile for all that she meets. Her blue eyes and long lashes melt me. That smile just puts me in the best mood. That hair, that hair! She gets a lot of attention for that all naturally happy hair! Those chubby legs…who can resist?! Her fat little fingers and toes! We all love every single thing about her.
We were at the park last week and sisters wanted to stop and take pictures of our "Dandelion Fuzz Head Baby" in the patch of dandelions. A little out of focus. We'll have to try that one again.
I like to call her my little baby duck.
She is rolling all over the place forwards and back. She can pivot around on her belly too. She loves finding her way to where she is half way under a bed or rocking chair with a skirt or blanket hanging low that she can play with. It's so cute to see her get excited.
There we have it. All the latest for this little darling! You're up to date!

It didn't take us long to figure out what to do for our Spring Break this year. Two of Kermit's nephews were engaged to be married one weekend apart with our week of Spring Break in between. One wedding in Provo, UT the other in St. George, UT. We booked our tickets immediately. We were so excited for both of them and so excited that we could finally take our kids to see Northern Utah for the first time.
We flew into Salt Lake on Friday afternoon and had a few hours before we had to be down to Provo so we took the kids to see beautiful Temple Square. We walked all around the grounds and told them all about the day we got married there almost 15 years ago. We went inside the old tabernacle and to the new conference center. I hope that the girls will remember that day. I wish we had more time to linger but we had to get to Provo for a dinner for cousin Elliot and his bride to be, Valerie.
(Just enjoying the view of the most beautiful temple ever….)
Elliot and Val were married in the Provo Temple. Here are pictures from just after the wedding.
We also went to a favorite restaurant called Bombay House with the wedding party for lunch. YUM! A good time was had by all!
Then we got to see our very favorite Michele and Daniel! Hooray! Love these two. We got to visit with them at their house in Provo. Michele put together a cute little Easter Egg hunt for the girls. We got to see their very cool house that they have remodeled. They have great modern taste. We also decided to take a drive up Provo Canyon to see a cute little park there so the kids could run around. So much fun to see them. We wish they didn't have to live so far away.
