We Made It

Hello from sunny Yuma, AZ. We have been here for almost two weeks now, and we are loving it!! The warm weather is so pleasant and we couldn't be happier with our house. We just got the internet hooked up yesterday so I am reconnecting with the world. I will update soon with what we have been doing, but for now here is a new family pic taken just before we left Idaho.

Happy Easter 2010

Happy Easter! It has been so nice to just relax and enjoy Easter at home this year. We didn't even have to dress up and go to church because it was conference weekend. I think that both my kids had a good time. June loved finding eggs and her basket, and Jack just liked to suck on plastic eggs. We colored eggs on Saturday night, and then the rest of the fun happened Easter morning when we woke up. Sean missed out on yet another holiday, but this will be the last because he comes home on Thursday!

This first pic of Jack was taken the day before Easter while we were in Utah, but it was just too cute to leave out.
Here is Jack going after his first egg.
A few of these pics are out of order, but these are the delectable chocolate cupcakes we had for Easter dinner.

June wouldn't hold still for a second for me to get a good picture, but here she is searching for eggs.

More of the egg hunt.

June's Easter basket was all BLUE because that is her most favorite color. The Easter bunny even sorted out all the blue m&m's, whopper eggs, and Reese's to give to her!! She also got the new Princess and the Frog DVD.

Jack would have just been happy with a plastic egg, but he got some handsome new clothes to go with his eggs. We had a wonderful Easter together!

Kathryn's Bridal Shower

We had a bridal shower for Kathryn on April 2nd down in Utah at my cousin Kate's house. It was a lovely event thanks to my talented family members. I think Kathryn got some great gifts and got to meet lots of our side of the family. Our theme was "Remember your first everything" and all of the gifts corresponded (ex. first time baking a birthday cake together - cake platter and decorating kit). It was fun, and I enjoyed getting to know Kathryn better. Here she is trying on her new apron that Auntie Em made for her. This is some of the tasty food we had to eat.
Here are a few of the gifts before they got opened.
