Happy Easter

We had a very nice Easter weekend. We spent Saturday with my family watching General Conference and doing Easter crafts and nibbling on treats. On Sunday we had Easter dinner with Brian's family and the kid's had another little egg hunt with their cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's. A weekend full of family and fun.

Silly Lila, she was a little confused by the whole basket thing...


On Saturday Brian took the kids for a ride to see if they could find the Easter Bunny out delivering treats to peoples houses. (He has a great story about Jake sneaking along the fence and up to the garage, to get some sunglasses out of Brian's car, so that he wouldn't scare the Easter Bunny away if he happened to be at our house right then.) But while they were out looking that silly bunny came to Pa Dave's! When they got back there was a trail of candy into the house and straight to Lila's basket.

When Lila saw the candy she squealed and said, "Nummies!" By the end of the day can-ee was her new favorite word...


Evie was most thrilled by the fact that the Easter Bunny somehow knew that she wanted Peeps more than anything! She also enjoyed getting a new fish kite, some pink bubbles and a little plastic watering can... now if Spring would just warm up enough so she can get outside and start using them...


Jake's basket was harder to find this year. Apparently it's been hidden in the same place for the last 5 years, and it threw him a little that it wasn't in "the" spot. But he found it with only minimum help from Caite and Patrick, and he also got some bubbles and a kite. (Hmmm... it's almost like that Bunny can't wait to get these kids outside to play.) Jake also got some color changing Hot Wheels that he wasn't so sure about at first. He thought they were too creepy, until he realized that they are multiple color changers.


But here is how we spent the first day of Spring Break. Sitting on the porch watching it hail... notice we are all wearing sweats and long sleeves. I hope this weather warms up soon, I was really looking forward to going to the park, having picnics, and being outside during the break!

That picture with Lila is so cute! You can feel her excitement seeping through the photo and past the computer screen. Tons of fun.

I used to love weather watching with my kids! They're all still weather watchers. You're a mommy after my own heart, Chrissy! Easter looks like it was a blast. Love ya, Sandra

Of course we miss the snow yet again. Although the 80 weather today was pretty nice. :)

And I just have to announce that my word verification is "fartma." That's right.
