Easter 2015

What a wonderful day Easter was this year.  We watched general conference, did Easter baskets with the kids, read the scriptures and prepared an easter feast for dinner with Terrill's family.   Terrill and I are such a great team.  He seriously helps me soooo much and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him.  I cooked my first ham and chuck roast using the Pioneer Women's recipe, which proved to be a success! The whole day was so nice and pretty unstressful since we did the majority of the work on Sunday..."Saturday is a special day, its the day we get ready for Sunday...."  Anyways, when the Wolf's arrived, we nibbled on some delicious appetizers, had an Easter egg hunt and ate dinner.  We also did a little mini lesson on Easter using plastic easter eggs.  The awesomeness didn't end there, we enjoyed dessert and good company and then the elder's joined us too.   I am so grateful to know Christ lives.  It's such a wonderful time of year to remember this great blessing!

Madison 10 Months

We just celebrated Easter and Madison turned 10 months.  This past month she conquered rolling over, crawling and the stomach flu.  She is getting more and more curious every day about the world around her.  She crawls at super speed now and loves her bathes.  She loves acting like she is talking on the phone, screaming to get our attention and eating LOTS of food.  I love that food makes her happy so when she is fussy, I can just put her in her chair and give her a snack and she is happy as a clam.  She always sleeps through the night and is still taking 2 naps a day.  She loves her brother for the most part when he isn't clobbering her.  She also gets soooo excited when Terrill gets home because she just adores him.  She really is such a joy to have in the family and we love our growing blondie!
