Happy Easter!
I love Easter. I love the opportunity to think on Jesus Christ and the blessings we have because of his sacrifice. I am so thankful for the opportunity to live again after death, but also the truly live in this life.
I tried telling Jensen the reason we got candy and Easter baskets. I told him the Easter bunny is happy about Jesus so he gives us presents. He didn't quite get it - maybe next year.

WeWe got together with about 10 families from our ward and had a little egg hunt. IT WAS SO COLD! I felt bad for the kids.


Jensen understood the concept of picking up the eggs this year. He picked up a blue egg and a yellow one- then he realized there were GREEN eggs. He ran around the rest of the time only picking up the green eggs. Funny kid.
Lily had fun opening all the candy and stuffing as much in her mouth at one time as she could.
She also has discovered her inner princess. A friend gave us a little Cinderella out fit. She loves it!
I FINALLY FINISHED ONE OF MY PROJECTS! I have been working on this one for a year! I took some wooden boards and painted them with Jensen's favorite vehicles. We mounted them up in his room and he loves them. He has Dave sing him songs about his trucks and airplanes and trains every night.

Danica, congrats on the baby! And I LOVELOVELOVE Jensen's room! You are so crafty and artsy--the painted boards look amazing! Wow!! And I'm still laughing about the green eggs--so funny.

Isn't it funny how particular they can be? Christian always picks out the green applejacks and leaves the orange ones. I don't get it, I'm sure they taste the same, but whatever! :) Too cute about the eggs, what a funny boy. I'm loving the finished wall hangings! I'm glad you were able to complete them, they look awesome! What project do you have in mind for Lily's room? :)

Dannica, I can't believe I found you! Aren't blogs great. Karen had you on her list... I am so glad that you have a blog because now I can see your little family. Sounds like enjoy being a mommy just as much as you thought you would. Your trip looked fun, oh and congratulations on baby #3.

I can see the family resemblance in the countdown baby picture. Jensen listened to your talk about Easter and since "green" is the color of springtime he only wanted green eggs, or has he been reading a lot of Dr. Seuss lately?
