This week we celebrated my "little" brother's 17th birthday. We went to dinner at a place called The Keg, and then came home for some of Ryan's favorite dessert, chocolate mousse. The three guys were having a contest to see who is the tallest. In this picture, they're all standing up perfectly straight (which is unusual) and on their tippy toes! Rusty still has Ryan by a little bit, but they've both passed up Daddy, who is a shockingly short 6'3"! What good looking guys!

Above is a pic with Noni and 3 of the 4 grandkids, Braden wasn't there because he was spending quality time at the cabin with Nana and Bopy. While they were over we decided to make Cowboy Cookies. I had a lot of help, and by the time we were done, not a whole lot got made into cookies as you can see. But really, this is the best cookie dough EVER! The cookies turned out pretty good too, but they were gone way too fast! This is one of the few times Berk and Jaci aren't yelling at each other!

Aren't we cute! Jaci and I kind of matched for church today, so we decided to take a few pictures. She is such a smart and silly little girl. She has us laughing constantly with her new phrases! For example, she came up behind my dad while he was sitting on the floor, put her arms around his neck, kissed his cheek and said "Pops, you're really hot!"

Here are just a few updates.

Jaci thought it would be fun to NOT take a nap and to instead draw all over herself and the bathroom door with a blue marker! 

What a nerd! She's wearing her fireman helmet from firehouse subs and my glasses!

Going out for my brother (Rusty) and uncle's (Todd) birthdays. We went to Ruths Chris, which I had never been to before. This is just a pic of the girls! Man, I'm a giant!

Poor Jaci had pneumonia and had to do breathing treatments, but she took it like a champ! She was so good about telling it was time for her breathing treatments and that she was ready for her medicine. It was yucky, but she took it so good because she wanted to feel better.

For Valentine's Day Noni (her grandma) made her a giant heart cookie. Yummy! Except I don't think Jaci actually ate much of it!

Her new "big girl" bed. She's FINALLY pretty much stopped taking a bottle and so she graduated to a toddler bed!

Jaci dancing with prince charming (Pops) on his birthday. After all she is a "beautiful princess", or so she tells us several times a day!
