Fresh

This morning I woke up (at 9!-heaven) organized the shoes in my closet and went for a run.  Everything was just so glorious and perfect.  Mowers were mowing, birds were singing.  I was planning everything I was going to clean in my head on the way back.  When I got home Chris had already beat me to it! What is it about spring that just makes you want to clean?  I think it's that we are trying to make our homes as happy and fresh as the outdoors.  What do ya think?  Fresh.  I used to use that word all the time.  Funny, I haven't thought of it in a while.  

While I was taking my shower Chickie got Bentley dressed for the day.   

Not bad, but I think she went a little overboard on his hair.    Sadly, his color scheme is the same as my room blue and yellow.  Gag.  Which reminds me...I have a confession to make.  We moved...again.  Are you waiting for the April Fools?  Well, it won't come.  I'm not kidding.  If there were a movers anonymous I would sign us up.  I was too embarrassed to admit it.  So I didn't say anything.  We moved in February.  Just down the street.  That makes the third time since we have been married that we have moved just down the street.  I lost out on some good blogging moments because I didn't want to admit we'd moved.  Like bunk beds.  That could have been the basis for like, 15 posts in and of itself.  Like the time I found Chickie hanging from the railing.  Good times.  Well, they are no longer bunk beds.  So why confess now?  Well, I know you all wouldn't believe that I would have lived in a yellow bedroom with all my blue stuff since October.  That would be completely unbelievable.  Would it not?  Anyway.  Bought the paint.  But I'm a little slow to actually paint it.  I did hang pictures today.  And I think we have just one little bit of stuff to take to storage.  
Man, it feels good to get that off my chest!  So what was I saying?  Oh yes, glorious, fresh day!
I heart spring.  And isn't it funny that both my kids fit in this yellow dress?  I told Olivia that Bentley was not allowed to go outside like that.  She said, "Well, I want to wear it! I love that dress!"

I agree that you try to match your house to the season. The other night the missionaries came for dinner and when they walked in they said my house felt like summer. I was so excited! It was perhaps my favorite compliment about my house that I have ever received.

I've had a spring cleaning list on the fridge for two weeks now. It's filled with great ideas. Unfortunately, none of them have been done yet.
I don't even have moving as an excuse...

Poor Bentley. You will have plenty of cute pictures to show all his girlfriends one day. The shoes. That's the funniest part. How did she get him to want to put that on?

You guys moved again! You guys are TOO funny. We would have helped you out if you'd called. Silly!!

BTW, I really want you to take our family picture. But I don't know how they'll be....Dallin just got his braces on, and Gretchy is about to lose a top tooth?
