Prima Ballerina

It's not the best video but if I remember right I was wrestling a 6 month old at the time so it's all I got.

Request Granted

I've had a request for a halloween costume picture so here it is. Also a picture of Ciara at her ballet class. Ciara was a unicorn, Dalin was a robot, and Jace was a candy corn. I wasn't willing to dish out money on a costume for Jace, I couldn't find one for less that $20 that was decent so I bought some fabric and made his costume. I couldn't even find a robot costume, closest thing was a transformer and he wasn't interested so Zane and I put together his costume as well. We went trick-or-treating on Main St. in the afternoon to the different businesses (organized by the city) and everyone commented on his costume, we actually had one lady ask to take a picture of him. He was more than willing to say cheese for the camera!

Ciara had so much fun at her ballet class. She's not the most graceful swan but maybe with more lessons and some practice she'll be dancing to swan lake, who knows?!

Family Pictures

We went over to the BYU campus last week and had my sister-in-law, Jenise, take some family pictures of us. All of the kids cooperated... just not at the same time. I think I'm going to be doing a little photo shop on a few of these and switching some faces around. I will be sending some of these out in the mail along with Ciara's 1st grade school pictures.

Happy Halloween

Pictures of the kids' pumpkins, and when I say kids I mean they picked the design and Zane and I carved them. Jace wasn't thrilled with our way of including him in the festivities.

Sweet Baby Jace

Love you Mom!!

When all else fails, get creative

So, Ciara and I went on a wild goose chase this last week looking for a jean skirt for school. We couldn't find one that was long enough but also small enough in the waist so I improvised. She has about 5 pairs of jeans that all have holes in the knees but they still fit so this is what I came up with. What do you think??

Before... Meet After


My mom's been bugging me to get her some new pics of the kids up so she can see them. I don't blame her. It must be hard going from seeing her grand babies almost every day to never. I love you mom. Wish we were closer. I hope you and Nikkie can come and stay for a while in Sept!! Here are a few random pictures of the kids.

So tired

Ciara on her first day of first grade!

He really enjoyed the rice cereal, he kept grabbing my hand trying to shove it in his mouth

Dalin... being Dalin

Major Updates

I guess the biggest update to give is the fact that we've moved. We are now in UT. We're still waiting for our house in Billings to sell so we are living in Zane's parents' basement apartment. It's nice that we have our own kitchen, laundry and entrance to our place. Zane is really enjoying his new job and his new toys. We had to buy a new Truck for him for work and he also got a new cell phone, a Droid. He's had fun downloading new apps. He is working for Darci's husband Ryan estimating drywall, so if you or anyone you know is looking for a drywall company let me know :) He's been trying to get a few builders so that he'll have a continual flow of houses but it's hard to get you foot in the door sometimes.
Ciara is enjoyed her new school. She has made quite a few friends that she plays with on a regular basis. I can't believe my little girl graduated from Kindergarten! She is going to be a 1st grader in just a short while. We celebrated her 6th birthday not to long ago. We had 18, yes 18, kids at our house for a chaotic 2 hours of good old fashioned birthday fun. Of course we had the traditional birthday girl melt down but all in all the kids were great. It was so fun to see so many kids come to her party. We had a treasure hunt for a "dinosaur" egg, pin the horn on the unicorn, a TP mummy wrap up competion, and cake and ice cream. It was fun and Ciara LOVED all the attention.
Jace is growing like a weed. We had his blessing on the 16th of May. My mom and good friend Nikkie were able to come down for that but George, Matt, Jasmine, and Chantile weren't able to come, we missed you guys! While they were here we were able to go to Temple Square and also the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. It was so much fun to have them here, I miss my family! It seems like that was so long ago. Jace wasn't quite 2 months yet and now he is almost 4 months. Where does the time go?
Dalin... is being Dalin. I've decided he's not going to be the class clown. He's going to be the mischevious kid that causes all the problems but somehow never gets blamed for it. That little boy is sneaking and so dang cute! He gets this glint in his eyes and I just know he's about to do something he knows he shouldn't. He's 2 and a half now and is talking like crazy. He loves all things boy. Cars, motorcycles, trucks, superheroes. The other day we were at a baseball game for Jared and there were a couple of guys in a UTV waiting for the game to end so they could groom the diamond and Dalin walks up to Zane and says, "Dad I go say hi." He wanted to go talk to the guys to see if they'd give him a ride. That kid cracks me up. His favorite thing to do at dinner is tell knock knock jokes. If no one responds with "who's there?" he'll answer himself then laugh at his own joke!
I'm doing alright, all things considered. I'd be doing better if our house would sell. The market in Billings is just so dead right now I don't know what to do, any suggestions? It's been interesting adjusting to have 3 kids in the house. I don't think it would be as hard if Jace liked his carseat a little more but every time we get in the car he screams the whole time. I kind of feel imprisoned in the house a lot of the time because I can't stand the crying. Just going to Walmart just about puts me in the loony bin! Hopefully he'll grow out of it but for now we're homebodies. He is really a mommy's boy too. If I can be seen or heard by him, having someone else hold him just doesn't cut it, he gets fussy till I take him back or pick him up... can you just imagine what my house looks like?:) Well I've put together a couple of slide shows, mostly for my mom. She's been bugging me about putting up new pictures of the kids, especially Jace, since he's changed so much! So, here they are.

Jace Marohi Kotter
Jace made his arrival, safe and sound, Sunday March 21st at 3:03 p.m. he was 8lbs. and 20 1/4 in. He's been a good baby so far... as long as we don't put him in his bassinet. He loves to sleep in his boppy bouncy chair. I say as long as he's sleeping I don't really care where! Big Sister and Brother love him very much and fight over who's turn it is to hold him. Jace is a trooper when it comes to getting "loves" from his siblings! I am doing well. Jace's delivery was my easiest of the three and I am feeling really good. Thank you to everyone who has given us gifts, made us dinner, or done anything to help us out in this new adventure. We love you all!
