Summer is Just Around the Corner!

I love winters in Arizona! 60 degrees is pretty much the average. AZ winters are perfect for me because #1 I love wearing cute winter clothes! I get to wear cute little sweaters and scarves but don't have to feel overwhelmed by a big bulky jacket and still feel cute. #2 If I want to go to the snow and feel bundled up it's only 3 hours away. #3 The nice weather lasts the majority of the year. To me, you can't beat that!! However, summers are not so fun and the last couple days have been hinting that it is just around the corner. Although it is still wonderful, day in the park, let's have a picnic weather (about 75-80 degrees) it is starting to get warm out. Before I know it I'll be feeling like I've been blasted with a blow dryer every time I walk outside. You pretty much need to live indoors or in a swimming pool to survive AZ summers! Alas, the brutal summers are totally worth bearing for 3 months in order to enjoy the perfect weather the rest of the year!

February=Crazy Birthday Month!/Family Pictures

This is definitely a busy month in my family. We have three birthdays in Feb. David's (the 2nd) Jared's (the 9th) and my Dad's (the 27th). Since David and Jared's are only a week apart, this year we decided to have them over for a sleepover at our place, which has sorta become a really fun tradition with my brothers. Trent and I love having them over! We took them to Famous Dave's for dinner and then they wanted to "hang out" at the mall for a while. We had a lot of fun! I can't believe how old they are! David's already 16 and such a character! He is known in our family as the teaser. Anything he can do to get a rise out of us he does. He is also such a sweetheart so we always forgive him :) He is very happy his long awaited debut into the dating scene has finally arrived! Watch out ladies! Jared is such a great kid! He is all boy and is growing like you wouldn't believe! He's taller than I am now (which isn't exactly that difficult to do). I now have 3 out of my 5 younger brothers who are towering over me! He turned 13 this month and is playing basketball this year and absolutely loves it!!! It's no secret that I love my brothers! They bring so much joy into my life. I'm so privileged to be their sister! Don't worry I'll be sure to cover my dad's birthday when it comes too.

And sorry it's taken me so long to post these! We took these just before Tyler left.

The whole gang The Girls

The Boys...

Showing their true colors!

The ones who started it all! Such a cute couple!
