What an eventful few days! I love this time of year – things are warming up, the sky is blue, and it’s time to celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior! New birth is everywhere!! Love it. The girls had Friday off school, Lyndon had Friday off work and I….well, I suppose it was a day like most 🙂 First thing I drove over to Michaels to spend my $50 gift card. I opted to purchase a nice frame for my “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”. I’m SO excited with how my little project turned out. It only took about 20 minutes I also bought a couple of things for around the house, which I can’t wait to show you! When I got home, I was so happy to see that my husband had managed to clean most of the house! DOUBLE YAY!
After lunch he took the oldest girls out for a bit of fun at the mall and the local indoor greenhouse. He also took them to play at a huge indoor park. Why? So I could have some time to myself while my baby slept. NICE! I suggested he take my camera with him so I could see all the fun they had. He rocked the camera as always 🙂
I especially loved this photo. Yes, the girls’ hair is untidy, and Bayboo looks like she is not amused, (who would be after seeing that scary bunny??) but it’s my girls and I LOVE all the color those balloons bring to the photo. 100% Easter here! Looks like they had a blast with their daddy. My husband loves plants – he loves to grow them, nuture them, resurrect them after I’ve had them a while 😉 So, it didn’t surprise me when I heard that he had taken them to the indoor gardens. He took a number of beautiful photos of the flowers, but I especially love these ones of the girls. That leaf, by the way, they found on the ground in the parking lot. We don’t make it a habit of teaching our kids to rip leaves off of tropical plants.
We had some friends from the ward come over on Friday night to play some fun board games. One of them was a german style game which was so interesting. It was an LDS version of a german game, actually, called “The Settlers of Zarahemla”. SO much fun. I really got into it. You really have to think when you play. Not sure how well it worked out for me 😛 Later we played a version of “Nerts” (if you are a member of my family, you know what I’m talking about) called “Dutch Blitz” which doesn’t use face cards as Nerts does, but otherwise it’s the same. Very fast paced game, and I actually WON! HUGE surprise for me. I never, ever, ever win that game – just not fast enough. And considering we were playing it near midnight – I’m doubly surprised I won. Maybe the other players being half asleep had something to do with my edge 😉
Church was fantastic! Like I said, I refused to let the girls have sugar on Sunday (mostly because of their behavior on Saturday after having downed most of their treats! Craziness!). I was relieved because they were all very reverent during Sacrament meeting. I had the fun privilege to teach Bryn’s class in Primary. Boy, I could definitely tell the kids were on a sugar high! LOL! SOOOOOOOO noisy. I felt so bad for the leaders, though I have been there before 🙂 My class was generally well-behaved, very smart, and sweet. I am definitely glad, though, that I can attend Sunday School and Relief Society right now. I feel for those women who are without that privilege for years because of their faithful service in Primary and Young Womens. I am so grateful for the women who teach my girls. They truly love them dearly.
