Easter Celebrations

We had a marvelous Easter this year!

Easter started on Saturday for us this year.  We made a special request to have the Easter bunny deliver goodies to our house Saturday instead of Sunday.  This allowed us to focus more on Christ than on the egg bringing bunny.

The girls with their Easter goodies.  The 'Uncle Wiggily' game, books and movies were joint gifts.

Saturday is also the traditional Easter Egg hunt at my mom's house.  After a light lunch all the grandkids head out to hunt for eggs.

Then inside for some crafts.  This year the girls decorated visors which they quickly turned upside down to be princess crowns.

Sunday we attend church as a family followed with a quick Egg Hunt in our front yard.

We typically dye egg on Saturday but since it was such a busy day, we moved it to Sunday.

We had a delicious dinner!  Ham (which actually turned out great this year!!), potatoes, rolls, deviled eggs, and an Italian Easter Cake.

Deseret was a yummy Carrot cake with Cream Cheese frosting!

Carl Bloch exhibit

On Friday, April 22nd we headed to the Brigham Young University to the Carl Bloch art exhibit.   It was fantastic!  Afterwards Ed and I dropped off the girls at his parents house for a nice lunch together.

Sunday Outing

Finally this past weekend the sun decided to come out.  We've had several weeks of rain or snow and all of us itching to go out.  On Sunday we took the girls to the Timpanogos Temple grounds, which is always a favorite.  I think Lucy enjoyed being able to run around.

I always check on my girls before I head to bed.  Olivia often will wipe off my kisses so I tell her that every night when I go into her room I always give her a kiss.  That way she can't wipe it off.  Perhaps it's a mother thing, but I feel uneasy if I don't check on them.  Typically they are snug in their beds but tonight I found this:

She must have been doing something pretty interesting before falling sleep!

My 30th

Today I celebrate my 30th Birthday.  It has been a wonderful day with some very special gifts.  Olivia was very excited about my birthday and wanted to give me something.  She wrapped up one of her princess dolls and gave it to me.  I was chocked up over the generosity of this little girl.  The pink Kindle cover (LOVE my Kindle) and the red roses are from Ed.
