Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side.

Easter Celebration

Emerson fell down good looking for eggs. Nothing a little candy can't fix . . .

Even Cade got in on the egg finding.

Wow, there's candy in these eggs.

For Easter we went over to Isaac's parents house after conference. We had a BBQ and an Easter Egg hunt. It was lots of fun. Ken and Kendra are living there with their son Kyson, so the kids were able to spend some time with their cousin, which was great. The kids had a wonderful time. We are so glad that Kendra (who has been soooo sick with her pregnancy) is feeling better so that we can spend more time with them. She was sick for almost 3 months! Poor thing. Anyway, the kids had a great time and it was fun to sit outside and watch the kids play. Got to love Spring in Arizona.

Easter Morning

We decided this year for Easter to get the kids one toy each and then a couple "candy items." It worked out well. I usually end up throwing away in about a week all the dollar store stuff you buy to stuff the baskets, so this worked out better for us. The kids loved it.

Emerson got a batmobile/batman, bubble gum and some cotton candy.

Capri got a princess dress, pom poms and a new wand.

We decided to put a TV/VCR in the kid's toy room so that the kids could watch movies back there and we could have a chance of watching conference. It worked out pretty good. We got to see about 1/2 of conference, which was more than last time! Cade loved snuggling in the beanbags. It was really cute!

Easter Egg Hunt

We went to our community Easter Egg Hunt. We had to rush there right after Capri's dance. When we got there they had just started, so we thought it was perfect timing. Know how many eggs the kids got? ZERO! They were so upset and started crying. There were kids everywhere and they just couldn't get to any of them fast enough. Luckily some lady saw that they didn't have any and had her "totally to old to do Easter egg hunt" kids (who had like 30 each) give the kids a couple eggs. They were happy after that. Next year, we will just stick with the big old back yard, I guess. They are so excited about Easter tomorrow. We are bummed because the Easter package my mom sent with the kids Easter outfits didn't make it here even though she mailed it last week. We are sad that we don't have Easter outfits for them. We'll just have to have a photo shoot next Sunday in their cute clothes!

My boys

Cade is finally confident enough to stand on his own. Won't walk, though because his balance with his foot is really bad. I think it's cute to just look over and see him standing.

Seriously, isn't he the cutest!?!
He likes to stand and look out the window.

Emerson and Cade. Cade will crawl up to Emerson and lay on his lap. They are so cute together.

Cade is obsessed with the vacuum. He laughs and claps whenever I get it out. Maybe he will be super helpful with the vacuuming when he gets older?!?
This was the day we registered Emerson for Kindergarten. He was really excited, but was to distracted to smile for a picture with his mom . . . Can't believe he's going to be in school!
