Time is flying by. I can't believe it is almost April. We are doing good, besides all of us getting some sort of bug that caused throwing up and "something else" not fun. We are on the mend and can't wait till it gets warmer out. Eric found out last week that we was accepted into the RIDE program. The University of Washington dental school picks eight students who get to do their 1st year and most of their 4th year in Spokane. It will be nice to be so close to family for an extra year (and only have to live in Seattle for a little over 2 years).

As I was looking through all my pictures to see which ones to post, I didn't have too many to choose from. Most of them ended up being of Aubs and half of them her hair looked crazy (I promise I do her hair).
I love her! Aubs is so beautiful! Aubree is growing up way too fast. She is learning things so fast. She has decided she wants to be a doctor and is learning a lot of anatomy terms. I can't believe all that she can remember. She loves listening to stories, especially stories about Jesus. Eric will tell her stories of Jesus at night when he puts her to bed and she'll remember details that he won't even remember telling her. Aubs is also getting so good at her prayers. She has even started helping Tanner with his prayers.
Aubree loves to dress up. The picture below, she came downstairs with these stickers on her shirt (the letters in her name and a 3).
I came into our family room and found Aubs on Tanner's lap, reading him a book. They sat like that for a while. They are so cute!

Tanner decided this week that he wanted to go poo in the potty.  I never even asked him if he would like to.  He was taking a bath and went(in the toilet).  Ever since that (last Monday), he has pooped everytime but once in the toilet. They even came and got me while he was in nursery and he went.  I still can't believe it.  This is Tanner, who just last week was still pulling other people's poop out of toilets (sorry about the graphic nature of this post).  He has no idea with peeing, but the less diapers poopy diapers I change, the better.  I am so proud of him.  Hopefully this isn't a fluke.
My dad teaches the kids gymnastics every Saturday.  
Handsome Tan.  I love this boy!
Aubree and Tanner are such good friends.  
Aubs checking herself out in a mirror.
Tanner has the BEST laugh.  It is just infectious.  He is such a happy boy.
Travis is 15 months old now.  I can't believe how old he is and how big he getting.  It is crazy for me to imagine that Trav is the age that Aubree was when I found out I was pregnant.  
This is what I saw when I looked back from my seat.  It is enough to make me cry.  

Tanner got into my mascara and if you look close, you can see his fat lip.  He slipped on some tile flooring and put his teeth straight into his top lip.  Blood was everywhere and his gums turned all purple. He is all better now.

We love to pop our own popcorn for our family night treat.
