Guess Who's Coming Home

Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen! Mike's parent's spent the winter down in Arizona this year. They both retired this summer and have been having tons of fun and enjoying their retirement. After the first of the year they headed down to the warm weather and to soak up some sun. They came home in February for a baptism and then headed right back to the warm weather. It was so nice to see them, but the time they were here was way to short. We have missed them tons this winter and it hasn't been the same with them not around. This week they will be headed back home to the cold weather, hopefully it warms up a little so they are excited they came home. We are so excited to have them home and the boys can't wait to be able to go up to their house and see them. We went up last Saturday to get their house and yard all ready for them to come home. We raked the twigs and leaves and then put up some Easter stuff and Jake just can't figure out where they are every time we go up to their house he walks around saying, Papa and can't seem to find him so this week he should be able to find him and give them both hugs and kisses. Can't wait to see them!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

do you have the luck of the irish

Green, Green, Green that is all we saw today everywhere we went. Our St. Patty's Day all started on Sunday when we headed down to Steph's for the famous Green dinner. Every year we all get together and have dinner and everything we eat is dinner. This year we had hamburgers, green buns, green salad, green ranch, green potato salad, ice cream and green cupcakes. The decoration we so cute my mom and sister did a great job with them. My kids love it that can't wait when March comes around to have the green dinner. So this morning we woke up got all of our green on and I have to agree with Chris I tried to draw a shamrock on my boys cheek, but just like her boys they turned me down. Tanner did let me put a shamrock tattoo on his arm, but that was it. Tonight was crazy busy, anything from dance, to scouts you name it we had it, so our own little green dinner wasn't going to happen, but when I got home from dance and grabbed Austen from scouts. We came in the door and my wonderful husband had made us a green dinner. He made green eggs, green pancakes, bacon and green milk. I have to admit I was really surprised and the kids were super excited, but I guess my family traditions are starting to wear off on him after 5 years. I love this guy and he makes my life so much easier. Thanks honey for the green dinner we loved it. I hope everyone had a great green day and now let's hope it gets warm so we can have a Easter egg hunt soon!
