Photo Shoot

My friend, Kathryn, offered to take some updated pictures of the girls. As you can see she did an amazing job, the pictures turned out really good. Soo good, that I had a hard time picking out my favorites. These are the ones that made the cut.

29 Things about Greg Severts

1. I call him Babe. I know it’s nothing unique.
2. It is his 29th birthday today.
3. I have lived with him for almost 8 years now, ever since we got hitched. And I have loved every second of it.
4. He is soo handsome.
5. One of his defining features is his curly hair. I love it when he grows it out a little.
6. And his gorgeous BLUE eyes. I am soo glad that some of our daughters have them too.
7. He is very romantic. When we were dating and first married; he would leave little notes, with sweet things written on them, around for me to find. I loved it. (hint, hint)
8. He is HA-larious. That’s was what hooked me in; I was giggling the whole 2 month long courtship. And have continued giggly ever since.
9. He has an amazing family. I am soo lucky to have such great in-laws.
10. He has always slept with a pillow between his knees. If he is unable to find some sort of pillow, I am afraid that no one will sleep until an extra pillow can be found.
11. He loves Mt. Dew, but he will usually hold off until we are on a road trip.
12. He loves sports.
13. That is an understatement. Not only does he like to play sports, but he likes to watch sports and he likes to talk about sports and he likes to watch people talk about sports and… if it has to do with sports he loves it.
14. When Greg proposed to me he wanted to do it by playing tennis and he hid my ring in the tennis ball.
15. He plays pick-up basketball sometimes twice a week.
16. He also plays in an indoor hockey league, though he is taking this season off.
17. He is a 3rd grade school teacher. He loves his job and he LOVES the kids.
18. The love is mutual. When his students see him at Wal-Mart or at a restaurant, they get embarrassed, but always say, "Hi Mr. Severts."
19. He drives a Moped to school and I think he likes it.
20. He is an aggressive driver; he gets that from his mom.
21. He is always offering to help with anything and everything. At a party, you can find him in the kitchen scrubbing something.
22. He has a strong testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
23. And a strong desire to do the right thing.
24. He is the world’s best husband.
25. He is very sensitive to my needs, he is always helping out with the girls, he knows when to take the girls for a little outing so I can have a break.
26. He is an amazing father.
27. He changes diapers and helps out during potty-training.
28. The girls love it when he does Underdog to them on the swings.
29. And last but not least, he is my best friend.

Happy Birthday Babe! I love you!

Preschool, Graduation!

Avalyn has officially graduated from preschool today. The program was soo cute. The kids sang a few songs; the yellow song, the days of the week song, and the months song. There was also a really cute slide show of pictures taken through-out the school year.

Avalyn is pretty excited about starting AM Kindergarten next year, at Floyd Elementary School (with her daddy). Go Bobcats!

Exploration Park

So, does anyone else have the problem, when you take a million pictures of your kids, and they all turn out soo darn cute, that you can't decide which ones that you should post on the blog, and believe it or not you actually did weed some out, but you still end up posting a lot of pictures anyway? Anyone??

We found this super fun park in Las Vegas. It has a fun western theme and lots of grass and a water area for the kids to run through. Next time we'll be sure to bring the girls swimsuits along.

ballet recital

Okay, I know I went a little photo crazy. But, this is Avalyn's first ballet recital and I am a proud mommy! I love ballet and I am soo happy that she loves it too. This is why I have girls, right?!

The first 4 pictures are during the performance. The rest were taken backstage after the performance.
