Busy, busy,....Spring?

I know its not Thursday, but this time of year beggars cant be choosers.
1. Mother Nature can burn in the depths of the devils pit:
What the 'H' Mother Nature? You give us one glorious week of warmth and decide that we have had enough? This would be fine if I wasn't expected to go outside and play softball for at least two hours a day or on the bad days stand out there for about 5 and watch the sport. All I want is to feel the warmth on my cheeks and be able to feel my fingers. Stupid lady.

2. St. George
This is her new Royal Dress that her mommy made playing in our favorite van.

We did find some happy little warmth while in St. George a couple weeks ago. Some of you may remember the glory of the March Softball Warm up down there and it is still going strong. I had been terrified of this trip due to the fact that Addi doesn't really enjoy vast amounts of time strapped into her seat cruising down the interstate. But that was all before...before we invested in the greatest of all inventions....

Oh thank you Sweet Baby Jesus for the glory that is Portable DVD players! This made the trip nice and she really didn't complain at all. It also helped that we rented a Mini-van (and now I am joining the fan club for them) and had lots of room to maneuver between her and the treats and the toys that were needed during the drive. It was so fun and she loved her 'truck' that she got to rule over the weekend. Call me lame, but I totally cant wait till I get a Mini-van with Stow-and-go seating one day. Yea, I dream big.

3. Softball:

The first day of the tournament I think we were the greatest team to have ever played the game. Cauley (my sophomore niece and the entire reason I coach) pitched a game where she got 20 strike outs. (I don't think I ever achieved that, I may lie to her and tell her that I did, but I think my high was really like 18.) She was amazing and astounding and awesome and all those other great words that indicate how great someone is. However, the second day they were a little less than spectacular. She did pitch the last game and got another win and another 14 K's but no need to brag about her right now. We ended 3-2...Oh well, at least the weather was good and we got to eat at In-and-Out.
4. Fish Show
Addi has found that Finding Nemo is her new favorite show and has asked to watch it at least 15 times a day. She first calls it Fish show and if I don't respond she asks to watch Nemo and if I still don't respond she will bring me the DVD remote over and tell me to WATCH IT. Her face shows how serious she is about this request which makes me laugh and usually allows her to fulfill her happiness. Her favorite parts are when the little octopus says 'Aww, you guys made me ink.' and when Dori exclaims that the giant scary fish in the depths is on a 'diet.' She knows those parts word for word. She is cute and I love her.
5. Angel:
She has been obsessed with Angels lately. Any lady or woman like object is in her mind an Angel. Everytime we do laundry together and she finds my 'Mormon Panties' she must immediatly wrap it around her head and call herself and Angel...I agree.
