The Happenings!

Where to begin– where to begin!?

Well these three all got their mission calls {don’t know what a mission call is go here to learn about it}

 My little Brother is going to Mexico City, in July
And Mom and Dad Foster are going to/left to Indianapolis, Indiana 
I won’t lie it’s been kinda hard– We are very very attached to Dave’s parents :) and for the last year I’ve gotten to spend everyday with them working on the house {I’ve been a very very lucky daughter in law to get to spend so much time with the most awesomest people you’ll ever know!} so we miss them a lot– but we also know that there are people that probably need them– more than we do right now–They will be some amazing missionaries!
And my little brother– I’m gonna miss terribly– We’ve gotten really close since we’ve been living with them–{ya know the daily after school chats :) } and I feel a bit like a mom to him since my mom has been so busy with her schooling—I’ll miss him no doubt but I’m very proud of him though and know he can and will be an awesome missionary!
Well that leads us to the next going on’s :)
We’ve moved!! 
No not into our new house {I wish!} but into Dave’s parents house- while they’re on their mission– It was a quick move really and we didn’t’ bring much– {yep our stuff is scattered all over now- some in storage, some at my parents, some in the barn, some here– It’s going to be called the great gathering when we finally get to move into our house :) }
But it has been really nice to be closer to our new house {just across the street} and to have a bit more space and not to be living with someone– that helps too! 
In moving though we’ve had some changes too– 
Zeeta went and lived with her mom “our niece & nephew” for a bit
Bryn missed her terribly {she loves LOVES her puppy}
Another thing that happened was we lost our Tiki (Lhasa apso) {we had him for 9 yrs} and he was a very good amazing dog– but he was getting old and had some arthritic problems and sadly one day he bit Ellie pretty bad on the wrist {and we had decided long long ago that we would never ever have a dog that bit} So so sadly Dave had to go put him down :(  I’ll admit it I cried a lot– and I missed him — and Brynley was pretty traumatized by it {she drew pictures of him with a frown and a bullet–ya pretty traumatizing} But it’s gotten a bit better now.
We did have lots of fun Celebrating Easter {we celebrated it early– so we could do it with Dave’s parents}
We had the annual awesome Easter Party– Egg hunt, with a yummy BBQ, Candy Throw, and the egg roll competition!  Needless to say it is a lot of fun- and our kids LOVE it! 
 Ellie’s first year coloring eggs– surprisingly she did really well– and liked it a lot!
 I love Easter Eggs!
 Grandma drew a grandpa egg :)
 Also the night before the party we got to welcome our nephew Kody home from his mission in Africa! Payton had fun helping color his banner!
 Going on an Egg hunt!
 Dave making sure Ellie was geared up for the Candy Throw!

 It’s a dangerous sport! :) but the kids sure love it!

The kids got quite a lot of candy :) 
{I loved how ellie was putting both hands in hers like she was relishing her spoils :) }
 Dave was in charge of the Egg Roll competition– {don’t you just love his business socks with his shorts :) makes me smile every time! Yep I’m married to that crazy hot man :)}
Brynley almost won the competition!– until she dropped her egg on the concrete :) She’s such a great girl though and really doesn’t let things get to her– she really just said – O-well and started peeling her egg :) I really love that about her personality!
Really I feel like this post could go on forever {I’m such a slacker blogger!} but that’s pretty much most of the happenings lately :) Life is great– busy– very very busy right now– but great!
