catch up through March...

I am determined to get this caught up, and I will someday :)
Emma won the Reflections contest in her school last November. She used a picture she took of a giraffe at the Zoo when we went the April before. She received a medal, a twix and a $20 gift card to Wal-mart. She was super excited.

As always, we had a great Christmas break. The kids enjoyed opening presents, and we enjoyed watching them. (like our fake fire in the background?)

In February I won tickets to ride the Heber Valley Railroad. The kids had so much fun. The fire wasn't working on our car, so it was a little cold. A really nice man bought our entire family hot chocolate to keep us warm. 
James was really excited to ride the train. It was dark, so we couldn't see much outside, but we were on a train, he didn't care. He was also excited because the train looked like Mavis(Thomas fans will know who that is).

Emma likes to make funny faces!

In March Emma was asked to be part of the Miss PG pageant. She was a little miss for one of the contestants. She had so much fun. They learned a little pirate dance and then they were the escorts for the formal dress portion. We had to track down a white dress for the formal part. That was a much harder task than I expected.

Emma loved being a part of this, and I got a taste of what it's like to be a pageant mom (it's definitely NOT for me)!

Melissa won 1st attendant, Emma was excited that she won. Mandy broke her toe right before the pageant while getting Emma ready. Luckily Aunt Emily was able to help Emma with all of her costume changes and make sure she was set for each thing.
