Payson Temple Open House

Jeremy took off work on Monday, and we picked Clara up a few minutes early from school, so that we could to see the Payson Temple Open house.  Joe's favorite parts were the stairs and Clara's favorite parts were the baptismal font and the beautiful lights.
 Joseph kept asking where Jesus was.  Apparently he actually listened to the video we watched before the tour started about how temples are the house of the Lord. 
Something that was unusual about this open house was that the very last room we were able to see was a sealing room.  They would pull a group in, and we got to sit in the sealing room and listen to a couple's testimony along with their short explanation of what takes place in that room.  I loved the importance they placed on being able to be sealed as a family for all eternity!

Brotherly Love

Joseph LOVES his baby Jack.  He wants to watch Incredibles since it has a baby Jack Jack in it.  He is constantly wanting to touch Jack and frequently rubs Jack's head. Any time Jack moves his arm so that it looks like he's raising his hand, Joe very excitedly says, "Look Mom, he's saying hi to me!"

I love that Joe loves Jack so much, but right now Joe has a runny nose and cough.  I keep telling Joe that he can't touch Jack because it would get Jack sick.  To which Joe replies, "I'm not sick!" and touches Jack anyway.

Jackson is 1 Month Old

I can't believe an entire month has gone by since we had our little Jack.  I'm still very much trying to create a sense of normalcy in my life, but I'm so grateful for the challenges he brings because he's here with us!
Clara decided to see what Jack looked like in my glasses, then she thought it was so funny she took a picture.
Also this week, it snowed more than it has since Christmas.  Clara was never able to make a snowman all winter, so I made sure we made it outside to make one for her.
The weather man said we were only supposed to get 1 to 3 inches.  Since the snow came up to the top of Joe's boots, it was more like 6 inches.  Joe was so excited to go walk around in the snow.  We had some Dr appointments that day, so I let him go outside while I got Jack ready to go.  He was in heaven just wandering around our yard.

Spring Break

I'm still in survival mode as far as a new baby goes, so we didn't do a whole lot for spring break this week.  Clara got bored one day and kept asking me what she could do.  I told her she had to come up with something herself (especially since the few things I did suggest she didn't think were good ideas.)  So a few minutes later she asked if she could have a box.  I happily obliged and she spent the next day or two transforming her box into different things. Her favorite was a bed though.  And Joe had to have one just like Clara.
Then we spent a lot of time with Legos.  My kids love them.  (Most of these pics are from the week before spring break, but they were too cool to not post.)
Lots of robots:
