Savannah turned FOUR!!!

Happiest birthday Vanny girl
...we luv you!

Our FOUR FAVORITE things about Savannah:
1. How she luvs to sing & dance
2. She says sweet prayers and always points out that we should use words like "oh dear" instead of darn and gosh
3. She still takes a nap in the afternoon because she plays hard...
and likes giving her mommy a break!
4. She luvs to read, is a super sister, give good kisses & hugs, is a good friend and shares her toys, she is sensitive, she has beautiful eyes and a sweet smile, she likes to listen to music before she goes to bed, she has fun nicknames like Vannah/Vanny/Sissy, she likes to swim (okay that was more than 4!).

"Cousin Ellie was in town for my birthday!"

Cupcakes ~ My nanny Brittany (we LUV you!) ~ the next American Idol

My cousins & friends!

Blowing bubbles ~ Giselle / Enchanted Pinata (felt bad about hitting the Princess with the bat...but you gotta do what you gotta do!)

Cute in PINK!

I luv my new chair...

My birthday breakfast with my cousins, my very best friends! Thanks for the swimming Barbie Nanny! Sack lunches with my friends!

A lady bug charm for my bracelet from my daddy!

And the madness continued with NCAA Hoops! Em, Matt, and Landon came into town to watch the first round of the tourney at the Pepsi Center. We had legit seats and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg thanx to Em & Cam! The games were more boring than an afternoon at the library (JK!) but they were pretty much all blow-outs...we still had a great time though...and got a little press coverage being interviewed by the WBchannel2.

Lucky Notre Dame Leprechaun...who needs luck, right!?!? The Duke Blue Devils could have used some, totally let me down.

Here's to: Silver dollars, "and the guys look cute in their uniforms", lots of $5 Diet Coke cups, the weird WEIRD guy on the train on the way home (that Cam is imitating), "WINtrop" nuff said, ESPN Zone, the guy on the escalator "do I know you?", Em & My cute matching t-shirts, the greasy guys scalping tickets - oh wait that was Cam & Landon, the very sad/odd cheerleaders from Winthrop - seriously that ruined the game for me more than the score did, Pick 'em Right bracket..

Lucy-Lu...18 months and I couldn't luv this stage more. She luvs to play, be tickled, and cry for gummy's. I just luv being with her...she sure keeps us on our toes...sweet & smily, sneaky & silly. I just gave her a little haircut, it was starting to turn into a mullet...so we are working towards a bob for the summer!

swimming, swimming, swimming...luv you Morgy & Beau!
Savannah finally starting her swim lessons that I promised her a year ago (better late than never)...she luvs to swim and is getting better every week!

Young Women's Basketball...I guess that full court press the other ward put on us at the beginning of the season really helped us! We ended up winning the Stake tournament...we won by 2 points at the end of the game and it was legit, seriously the girls were pumped (um, yeah and so was I - booyah!!!). You'd think the domination would end there but we went to our multi-stake tournament two weeks later and WON! All about the teamwork...we had a fun pizza party at my house...I luv these girls...GO BLUE SHOES!

You had a crazy month. Happy late birthday to you, by the way. And to your cute little daughter. She is so adorable. You are such a good Mom. Honestly. I was cracking up when I read about the YW'S game. They must be so proud to have you as their coach.
(It is still your fault I ended up doing all of those push-ups that day in practice!)
