Easter
























































What a crazy weekend. Saturday we went to two different Easter Egg hunts and they were great. The kids had so much fun. On Sunday we went to church and then came home and Ben made rabbit. Yes rabbit. He has been wanting to try it for a long time and I finally gave in. Neither of us really liked it but it was fun to say we tried. Then we watched 'The Passion of the Christ'. I cried through the whole thing as usual. Then I made a big dinner of roasted leg of lamb, honey glazed carrots, a fruit trifle, deviled eggs and a homemade carrot cake for dessert. All in all it was pretty good.

After watching 'The Passion' it really got me thinking how lucky we are to live in this wonderful time. Things get hard for everyone and it so easy to complain but after seeing what our Savior went through for us, life seems pretty good and its easy to count my blessings. I just want to say one of the many things I am grateful for this Easter is my huge family. First I have a WONDERFUL husband. He is the best man I have ever known. He is the strongest, funniest, best friend I could ask for and an amazing Dad. I am also thankful for my Parents and my in-laws. They are both so wonderful to us and we could not have gone through school without them. I am also thankful for my extended family. My amazing sisters and brothers on both sides of the family. They are great examples to us and I miss them. We miss you all and can't wait to see you soon. I love you.


Family Picture









We have not had a really good family picture since Lincoln was born. Today we did it and here are some of the pictures that just did not make the cut.

It has been a crazy month. It hit 100 a week ago and we sent the day at the pool with the kids. It was so much fun. Lincoln is starting to crawl. He is into everything now. We caught his first crawl on camera.

Zoo








































I got to go to the Zoo for Katrinas school day and it was so much fun. Kids are so sweet and innocent at that age. The next day Ben and I went with Belle and the boys for her school. They loved it and were so excited to see all of the animals.

My Birthday

Well I am 28 years old now. I feel so much older. Ben made me a beautiful cake and I even got a coupon book from Ben. Great things to cash in for. The girl made me the sweetest cards. Thanks for the birthday card, presents and wishes. I love you all and miss you so much.
