Baby Drew

Drew Allen was born on February 19th at 4:30 am. He weighed 7lbs 15 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. Here are just a few pictures from the hospital. Lauren and Chase were both so excited. It was so cute to see them hold him and kiss him.

pregnancy pictures

My neighbor insisted on taking pictures of me. Here are just a few. These were taken one week before Drew was born.

Ice skating

Lauren has started taking ice skating lessons.  She loves it!  It was her first time ever skating, so she was little nervous.  I had to help her walk to the ice, but after the lesson, she could walk off the ice and into the lobby all by herself.  When we are in the lobby, she and her friends can't help but gawk at the older girls in their pretty outfits, and pink ice skates.  They stare at the girls, and tell them they look pretty.  It's so cute.  The above picture is of Chase getting a ride with our friend Jeff, while the lesson was going on.   In the below pictures, Lauren is in the pink Jacket.  

She insisted on wearing a skirt over her jeans, so she could be like an ice princess.  

Rocklin 1st ward variety show

Our ward had a variety show.  Lauren and her friends did a dance to the "Lollipop"  song.  She did a great job, and all of the girls were really cute.

feeding the horses

We went with some friends to feed horses.  Lauren was nervous and just admired them from afar.  Chase really liked feeding the horses.  The kids had a good time.  They keep asking me when we are going again.    

Lauren's new haircut

Lauren has been bugging me to cut her hair.  I finally took her to the salon and chopped it off. She LOVED getting her hair washed.  She told the hairdresser that her dad was going to say she was bald- headed.  I love her hair short.  I hope she wants to keep it this way for awhile.

My nephew, Davis, had his birthday party at a bowling Alley.  It was the first time my kids ever bowled.  They loved it.  A couple of times, they rolled the ball so slow, I thought it would stop in the middle of the lane.
