Can't wait to find out

So tomorrow is the big day. We will finally be finding out what is wrong with my back. Well we probably won't know anything tomorrow but at least I have my appointment for an MRI. I really can't wait to find out what is wrong and what we can do to make things better. My back has been really bad this week and on Tuesday I was so drugged on my pain pills that I don't remember much that happened. I could fall asleep sitting up. Crazy!! The last two days have been a little better but still pretty painful. When you can't stand up straight there is defiantly something wrong with you. Well, I'm nervous but excited to see what the result is so we can move forward from here. I just want to be able to pick up my baby without pain shotting down my leg. That sciatic nerve is really pinched. Wish us luck!!!

Kristine's 1st Dentist Appointment

Today was Kristine's 1st dentist appoinment. It was fun. I had my teeth cleaned first and then it was Kristine's turn. She did really good.

This is a picture of the nice clean smiles of mommy and Kristine!!
She had to sit on my lap to get her teeth cleaned but like I said she did really good.

She only cried once when they put the cleaning tool in her mouth but after that she was fine. The nurse said that most kids get scared from the tool that sucks the water out of their mouths but Kristine loved it. She thought it was a straw and was trying to suck on it.

Here is our happy little girl!!
She was really such a good girl. We had a fun time at the dentist. The really funny thing about the whole day was when we got home and Luis asked Kristine if she went to the dentist today. She said yes and then her daddy made the noise of the cleaning tool and poked his finger into her. She gave him a really bad look and then said "Daddy you scared me." It was sooo funny. Luis and I tried so hard not to laugh out loud. It was a great night!!

Well, what a fun Easter Sunday we had. It all started out dying eggs in the morning (I forgot to take pictures). It was so fun though. Kristine had a fun time putting stickers on the eggs and saying who they were. "It's daddy" she would say when she put the stickers of the eyes and smiles on. Then it was off to church for a great meeting. Luis and I both had to teach in Relief Soceity and Priesthood. It was a busy Sunday for us.

When we got home the girls went outside with daddy to take Liebe out and I stayed inside to hide the eggs. It was so fun to watch Kristine so excited to find the eggs. Kaitlin just sat and played with the basket the whole time. Kristine would get mad at her because Kaitlin kept taking all the eggs out after she would put them in. It was funny.

Kristine was so fun to watch. She would just get this look of excitement when she would see another egg. As you can see from the pictures she was so so excited.

I just loved this picture of daddy and the girls so I had to post it. My girls look so much like their dad. Kristine just loves her daddy so much too. It is do fun to watch your kids grow up.

And here's the baby. I can't believe that Kaitlin is almost 1. She has grown so fast and it has been great being home with her. I never thought that it would work out for me to be a stay at home mom but the Lord truly does bless when you are doing the right thing. I'm so blessed to have such a hard working husband.

These are some pictures from our FHE Monday night. Kristine loves to play the piano or "pinano" as she calls it. She waited until we were finished with our lesson and then jumped up on the bench and started playing and singing the ABC song. She really loves music. She loves to sing her songs from Primary or "Pimary" as she calls it. Her favorites are Do As I'm Doing; Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes; and The Wheels on the Bus. We sing these songs a lot throughout the day. I just love it when she sits down at the piano and plays and sings her songs. Kaitlin loves to play the piano too. She always pulls herself up to the piano and just smiles when she hears the music coming from the piano. It's sooo cute.

This is that smile that Kaitlin loves to flash. It's a little blurry and we have been trying for the longest time to get a picture of it cuz she looks adorable with her little teeth showing. Someday we'll get a good picture.

Kristine also had a great time tickling her sister. She will pin Kaitlin down and then punch her fingers into Kaitlin's belly. Kaitlin loves it and Kristine is always good about not doing it too hard.
We are excited that Luis' schedule changed so that we can have FHE together.
