Parents of the YEAR...

Things have been CrAzY as usual at the Jones home! Yesterday our 2nd oldest turned SIX years old (can't believe it still), we had a fun family party at Hollywood connection, rides, roller skating, and mini golf. We all had a blast but were VERY tired by the time we made it home at 10pm. This morning we all slept through our alarms and the girls were a hour late for school (whoops)! I convinced Court to take the morning off since I am on spring break from school and help me get some things done around the house. Well we were picking up the house, etc... when I looked at the clock and it was 11:30am, ummmmm, our kindergartner is suppose to be picked up at 11:10am!!! Yep, like I said, PARENTS-OF-THE-YEAR! Not only was she an hour late for school, we were 25 minutes late picking her up.

I REALLY need life to slow down! I am beginning to feel totally overwhelmed and exhausted!!! I have about 5 weeks left of school and desperately need to study for the written and practical state boards, BUT WHEN??? I hope that through prayer, scripture study, and attending the temple that the Lord can bless me with the energy and sanity to get everything done that I need to in the next few weeks.

I am WAY behind on my blogging over the last month, so hopefully this next week I can catch up. We have been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY but life is great and we are having TONS of fun. Here is what we have been up to lately (pictures to come)...

*Court took the girls to a daddy daughter dance at the church, they got dressed up and had a blast with their daddy and their cute friends!

*I took little man on a mommy/son date to the mall. We rode the merry-go-round, choo-choo train, and got an ice cream. It was so much fun, he is such a little stud, and I loved having some one on one time with my little guy!

*We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary on the 5th of April! Still can't believe we have been together so long. We got the kids to bed and Court brought Olive Garden home for dinner. We thought we were going to have dinner alone but our little man took a nap that day and would NOT go to sleep, so he enjoyed a few bread sticks with us :). I have ALWAYS wanted to go to La Callie for dinner, so Court got a gift card there for our anniversary gift, but it has been soooo cold that we haven't gone yet. I want to wait until it is warm and we can enjoy the gardens!

*On the 14th of April I turned 28, man I am getting old ;). I had to go to school that day but was able to go get a pedicure on my lunch break. That night when I got home Court had taken the kids to get some cute little gifts for me and cupcakes. We went to a little fast food Teriyaki place for dinner and got the kiddos to bed!

*The Friday after my birthday we went to Cheesecake Factory with Courts parents and siblings to celebrate Courts mom's b-day, my b-day, and our daughters b-day. Courts sister and her kids were in town from Washington which made it extra fun. Sure love that place, it is so yummy!

*On the 21st of April was the Annual Taylor Andrews Hair Show. My girls were on Spring Break so they got to be "extras" in my groups segment. They had SOOOO much fun. It was lots of extra work for me having them there but I am so happy I got to bring them with me and spend time with them over their Spring Break. This is the second Hair Show that I have been apart of. It is SO much work but so fun to see it all come together. I was in charge of working with our dancers and choreography (so glad we had amazing dancers because that is so not my thing:). I also did a hair piece, it was lots of tedious work, but really fun to have it all come together on the model the day of the show!

*A week ago Wednesday, Court was in a car accident. The roads were wet and someone cut off the car in front of him. Everyone hit there brakes and tried to keep from hitting each other but there wasn't enough time for Court to stop and he slammed into the back of the SUV in front of him. Our little old Accord that we bought when we were first married is completely TOTALLED. Pretty sad considering we have had it so long. AND it really stinks because it is paid for and we quite enjoy not having a car payment. Courts dad is working in Africa for his company for the next month so luckily we are able to use there car until we can find a new one. LUCKILY Court (nor the other drivers) were hurt badly. The airbag hit Court pretty good in the head, but other then that he walked away with no injuries!

*This past Sunday we had a great Easter. The kids loved getting their Easter baskets and TONS of candy. We had dinner at Courts parents house and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins in town from Washington!

{So yes our life is NUTS right now and I REALLY need things to slow down! I feel like I can't get ANYTHING done around the house and being pregnant I have NO ENERGY!!! As much as I want things to slow down, I need these next 5 weeks to FLY by so that we can enjoy a nice, calm summer!}
