Fashion Statement?

Oh the joy when your kids decide to think for themselves. As Saralyn chose what she wanted to wear today she was faced with a dilemma when she found two beautiful pieces of clothing that she wanted to wear. I'm sure she was thinking, "Which one should I wear?" Well, instead of choosing just one, why not choose both and make a bold fashion statement? All I can say is it fits her personality! It's a good thing I have two great kids to keep me laughing!

Birthday Continued...

Well, while we didn't get to the decorating Alma wanted to do, we did have a nice relaxing day. And, boy, am I lucky. I got snow on my birthday! in April!!! No, I was not seriously excited about that, but hey, I guess that's what you get when you live in Utah, huh? Anyway, it was a fun day and when Josh got home he surprised me by having a babysitter set up and took me out for a nice dinner - which almost never happens! So I was happy.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, today is my birthday! I was pleasantly surprised with some beautiful flowers this morning from family in Pennsylvania. Thank you sooooo much! They are beautiful and an awesome way to start out the day. I don't think my girls really understood at first that it is Mommy's birthday. Saralyn kept saying "no, mine" thinking it was her birthday (again). And we had been telling them that it was going to be my birthday soon, but when the flowers came, it looked like a light bulb came on in Alma's head and she said, "mommy, is it your birthday TODAY?" I said yes and then she said "oh, well we need to decorate!" I thought it was cute. Anyway, here's a picture of the pretty flowers and hopefully I will have more pictures to post later on.

Nature Walk

Josh and his buddies went out looking for antlers for a good part of the day on Saturday. So, although I had my friends Becky and Amanda to visit with, we were pretty much inside most of the day. So, on Sunday I told Josh that we had to get out of the house to do something so I wouldn't go crazy. Well, you might be surprised, but what did he suggest? A "nature walk" (haha). I, like you,thought, yeah sure. And if we happen to stumble across an antler I guess we will take it home. But believe it or not, we did not come home with a single antler! We just had a nice "walk" (hike would be more appropriate word for it) and enjoyed being outside because it was a beautiful day. So we were all happy and I'm sure it did us all some good.
Anyway, we didn't get too many pictures. But the family picture above was from that hike, and this is just one more of us walking together.

Happy Easter

We enjoyed our Easter and hope you all did too. We got each of the girls a book that talks about Jesus and kind of explains what Easter is about in kid terms. Saralyn still doesn't fully understand, I'm sure. But Alma really seemed to get that it wasn't all about eggs and candy, although she enjoys that part. We were asking her on the way home from church if she learned what Easter was about. She said yes. We said, "Is is just about getting candy?" and she said, "No, it's about Jesus". We asked her, "what did Jesus do on Easter?" and she answered "He came alive again." I was very proud of her for listening to what we, and also her sunday school teacher, were trying to teach her. It's so much fun to see how much they can learn and what they can remember and then the questions they ask about what they learn.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of our Easter.
We had some fun coloring eggs on Saturday...

These are the finished product. Alma did the glitter eggs, and Saralyn put the faces on hers.

Our egg hunt expedition...

Grandma Minnick sent some cute Easter dresses complete with hats for the girls to wear to church. Thanks Grandma! So cute. I love how Saralyn is looking up to her big sister. I took about 3 pictures, trying to get them both looking at me, but every time I snapped the picture, she was looking at Alma. I decided that was pretty cute and shows how much she adores her.
