Easter

Tuesday, April 22, 2014


Happy Easter! Hope yours was as great as ours was! We got to surprise Eli on Sunday morning with a little Easter basket with a toy and puffs and he was just so happy and excited! And how cool does he look in these peeps sunnies? Dan and I have had these for about seven years now, and I have to say, they never get old. Eli sure thought they were tons of fun. 


Eli never actually got one of the eggs open on his own, which was astonishing haha but he thought they were the most fun because they're round like a ball and that's his fav. 

Eli's nap schedule and Sunday don't really jive well together. So, that's why he's a total grump in the photos I tried to snag before church! Mid day light, grumpy child, and sooooo many things to touch and look at outdoors that are way more interesting than mom and her camera (i.e. rocks and pinecones, and our yard that needs some serious work!) Oh well! He looked so cute all day he was breaking my heart!


Most importantly on Easter we went to church and got to learn and ponder more on Christ's Resurrection. I know that He is Risen and because of Him we can live again. What a blessing! Dan and I spent some extra time reading from the scriptures and watching some Easter videos too. If you have a spare two minutes you should watch THIS video! Makes me tear up every time. Happy Easter!

We've Been Traveling

Saturday, April 12, 2014


Eli and I made a last minute trip to Alaska for my brother's wedding this past week. It was fabulous to get away and spend so much time with family! It is however, equally fabulous to be home and back with Dan! So in my constant quest to play catch up, I've updated the Wren & Rumor giveaway with our winner, and I'm downloading a ridiculous amount of photos from my camera, so hopefully lots of posts to come :) Have a great weekend!
