Worth Coming Home To

This is what I saw tonight when I got home from a baby shower :-)

I love you too, Macy girl and Daddy!

Easter 2011

What a great weekend we had celebrating our Risen Savior with our sweet families!

My brother and sister-in-law were in this weekend so we were able to get some cute pictures of Cason, Macy and Bryce

After pictures, Grammy and Pops gave the kids their Easter treats and Cason and Macy used their new baskets for an Easter egg hunt in our backyard

Showing Daddy her eggs

One of our favorite things to do was dump our entire basket. Cousin Cason came to help

Easter Sunday morning
Macy had Minnie Mouse pajamas and an Easter VeggieTales in her basket

Trying to get a quick picture before church

After church, we headed to Nana and Papa's for lunch and Easter fun
Here's the crew!

It's time for the Easter egg hunt! At this point, we didn't even have to give Macy directions. She took off and knew exactly what to do

Checking in with Grant and Scarlett

Opening her eggs to see what all she got!

Sitting with Scarlett

Snacking on an animal cracker before lunch

After we ate, Nana and Papa had a fun activity planned for the kids. They got to decorate their own flower pots, pick a flower to plant and water it with new watering cans! And to top it off, Nana made all the kids aprons with their initials on them

Decorating her flower pot with her name and stickers

Getting some help from Daddy

She picked an orange flower and took it to Papa who helped her plant it

Then, she filled up her watering can and watered her new plant!

All seven plants

They had a great time finding all the other things they could water in the yard. We finally had to cut off their water supply.

Macy was exhausted after all her Easter fun! She took a quick bath when we got home and went down for a nap. We finally had to wake her up at 6:45! She had played so hard.

What a wonderful day of worship and time with our family. We are so thankful we serve a living Savior!! Can't wait for Macy to understand this truth more and more through the years.

Hope your Easter was blessed!

An Early Gift

When we had our 22 week sono with Eden, we were kind of disappointed because we didn't get to see her at all in 4D, which we did with Macy. So, for an early Mother's Day gift, Josh decided to get us an appointment at Sonocare so we could see our little girl (and confirm that she is in fact a little girl)!

Her sweet little hands were in front of her face the entire time, but we did manage to get a few good pictures.
"No pictures, please!" :-)

Feet up by her face

Sucking her thumb

And here's a comparison between our two girls:

Macy at 22 weeks

Eden at 30 weeks

The sonographer kept looking at Macy while she was playing and thought that Eden was really going to favor her. We will see! What a great gift to see this little miracle that we will meet in a few short months!

The Hunt!

My sweet friend and cousin, Leslie, opened her home up yesterday morning and planned an Easter Egg Hunt for all the kids. She had thought of everything and we had a great time!!

When we got there, Leslie had craft activities spread out for the kids to start working on...

Macy colored a picture and made her thumb-print with paint

And made some bunny ears

Then, the hunt began!

I thought I would really have to help her, but she picked up on the process rather quickly!

Regrouping...Deciding which way to go!

Got a basketful!

We also really enjoyed this wheelbarrow Leslie had in her backyard

We tried unsuccessfully pushing it from both directions

Then we "jumped" some with our friend, Logan

It was such a fun morning with our friends!! Thanks again Leslie:-)
