Best of Friends...

Look at these cutie pies... I love that my kids get to live by at least some of their cousins. They love each other so much and have so much fun together. I'm glad they like coming over to Aunt RiRi's house! My kids love going to Aunt Marci's house too...YEA!! Rich just said last week that he thinks he would like to move down to San Antonio too...imagine all the cousins then. Of course we need Aunt Marci and Uncle Bill to follow or better yet just come with us! Then maybe Oma, Opa and Aunt Nicki and Addison will come too! I think we should all buy houses in the same neighborhood and then the kids can just walk over to each other's houses. I would love for my kids to know ALL of their cousins. Wishful thinking never hurt anyone, right?! Maybe one day we will all live at least a little bit closer and get to see each other more!! We love all of you!!!!

Christopher's Ordination

Here is a picture of my 3 Mickelsen guys!! They look so handsome, don't they?! Christopher's birthday was April 9th and he turned the big 12!! Oma and Opa came out for the special occasion too!! Have I told all of you what incredible in-laws I have! They are here for everything!! I love you both so much! Thanks Mom and Dad we really appreciate you being here (especially since that was the 3rd trip you have made already to Indianapolis this year)!! Well, Christopher was ordained on Sunday, April 13th. Rich ordained him and Grandpa Wright and Opa were both able to help too! (along with others as well)! It was a very special day for our family and especially for Christopher! We are so proud of you Christopher!

Happy Mother's Day

I had a fabulous Mother's Day! I got to sleep in...YEA!! Rich got up with the kids and they made me breakfast in bed! They made me french toast (my favorite). Rich made a Dr. Pepper roast that morning too and had it in cooking while we were at church! It was DELICIOUS!!!! This is a picture of a cake the kids made me on Saturday night. I had mad a BIG wedding cake on Saturday and made an extra sheet cake. So when we got home from the reception, I let the kids take the extra icing and ice the cake. This is what they did...they had so much fun doing it and I loved the end result!! Also, Rich got me a present...I finally got a label maker!! YEA!!!! I have wanted one for a very long time! It is really nice and I love it!! One of my favorite Mother's day moments was listening to Rich give his talk in sacrament meeting on Mother's day and bear his testimony of the gospel! Let's just say...INCREDIBLE!! Thanks Rich and kiddos for the best Mother's Day ever... I LOVE YOU!!!!
