Blessing Day

My second born was blessed about three weeks ago and I am just now getting around to writing about it.
Actually there isn't much to say, I just wanted to put pictures and say look how cute!
Look how cute!
We chose to have it at home instead of church and it turned out to be a nice intimate family affair, which I loved.
Well, if intimate can be used to describe 20+ people. Thanks to everyone who came!
And look how cute!

T's latest obsession has been drawing pictures of houses.
Or more accurately, getting Seth or I to draw a picture of a house for her.
At least this means she's moved on from her last obsession, which was watching Despicable Me over and over again. She had to, because I hid the DVD in the top of my closet...

Seth really enjoyed conference this weekend. Can't you tell?

Happy Easter!

We spent the weekend in Raleigh with Seth's family and it was lovely except for the first 24 hours when I was inexplicably sick and feverish and it sucked.
There was an Easter Egg Hunt and my firstborn had a good time collecting eggs with the help of two or three adults.
Once she figured out there were things inside she took to shaking them as soon as she found them, which led to a few chocolate covered stickers.
And of course, like every other toddler at every other Easter Egg Hunt, she lost interest once she figured out there was candy inside for her to eat.
I had to pry a half-chewed chocolate that was still covered in foil from inside her mouth. Apparently we weren't quick enough for her.
Of course what she doesn't know is that her candy is now hidden in my dresser at home so that I can dole it out. A little for her, a little for me, a little more for me....etc. etc.
Happy Easter!
