I love Easter it's one of my favorite holiday's!!  I took the challenge this year suggested by the church where you use the hash tag #becauseofhim and each day you make a post about what you have been given because of him.  It was the perfect way to see the wonderful gifts that I enjoy in my life because of him.  I enjoyed that challenge and the focus it helped me obtain during the week of Easter!
The Easter bunny came (on Saturday)!!!

Getting into baskets and then ready for the community Easter egg hunt.  I love that 
our little neighborhood puts on it's own egg hunt, we all bring breakfast and t
hen the kids go get the eggs and prizes!!!

Dyeing Easter eggs!!!

The kids LOVE this tradition, I have major anxiety about it 
and dye being spilled all over!

All ready for church in our new Easter clothes!!!

Yes we match and yes I totally planned it!!!

Spring Break!!!

We headed to St George for spring break this year!  We went with two other families and had so much fun!!!  The main thing the kids wanted to do was swim, swim and swim!  I wanted to hit up the outlets and James wanted to golf.  All goals were accomplished and the trip was a complete success!!  We had such a good time with our friends and even got to sneak in some hiking at beautiful snow canyon.
 Dinner at the Brick Oven!!!


Beautiful Snow Canyon!!!

We invented a game with these horrible sodas and stayed up until 3 in the morning l
aughing and playing it!!!!

We visited the St George temple and went to the visitors center. 

It was beautiful and the perfect way to end out week of fun!!!

Conference Sunday!!!

On Conference Sunday every year I make a HUGE breakfast with bubble bread or cinnamon rolls, fancy eggs, sausage, hash browns and OJ.  The kids LOVE this tradition and actually listen to conference for a bit while eating breakfast!  I call it a physical and spiritual feast!!!

Preston who is also a stunt bike rider on the side, had a huge crash and burn on his bike!!!  He crashed and his poor little forehead took the brunt of it!  It was on conference Saturday after the last session.  We had to hurry over to James' office where Dr Daddy stitched him all up!!  He was so calm during the stitches that he actually fell asleep!!!  James had to go to Priesthood session a bit late, but at least his little buddy was OK!!!

Conference Saturday!

We sat down to watch conference and got a little Ruby show!  She just learned to do somersaults and was showing us!
