We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

Long post to follow...proceed with caution...you have been warned!

I know you are all dying to hear about my trip to FL. I had a great time. It was so much fun seeing beautiful Florida, putting my toes in the sand and surf, but mostly just hanging out with Laura. Thanks for the much-needed getaway! This is the only picture I have to show for the weekend as I was getting out of the car to catch my plane...it's not so easy to take pictures of myself!Danny and the kids survived well without me and I received a warm NM welcome when I got home which included a couple of indians, a lizard, a jackrabbit and a large tumble weed! My kids are so fun!I missed this little face while I was gone...And I was glad that he didn't forget me!

Upon returning, we had a busy week...

A kindergarten field trip to the zoo with Grace's class.And Jesse's 2nd grade art show.He did a great job. It was fun to see what they had been working on all year in art.

And this little guy learned a new trick...life just got a lot busier!He's so proud of himself!

And that brings you up to date...whew!

Uh Oh!

Here comes trouble!

No, not the show (although we are enjoying it immensely!) but this...#3 came a little out of order due to a good whack in the mouth! Now if we could just get that tooth fairy to get her act together...she is very forgetful!

What I loved about Easter...

*Seeing all the kids in their matching Easter finery...I'm going to get away with it as long as I can! Dyl had to wear his cowboy hat and do his new signature pose (thumbs up, dude!) Aren't they too cute!
*Having an Easter egg hunt with friends (even though it was FREEZING!-thus the lack of photos!)*Having an EGGstravaganza with more friends which included an egg toss, an egg relay, an egg roll and for the grand finale an egg drop...so much fun. Again there are a deficit of pictures because I was the organizer and it is hard to take pics, carry around a 1 year old and call the shots...but there you have it and we had a great time. Luckily it was much warmer than the previous day's egg hunt...the weather here is crazy this time of year!*Happy kids enjoying the "fruits" of a certain bunny's visit (Grace and James are MIA in this shot and I really have no excuse for the ONE picture I took this day...bad Mommy!) Doesn't Dyl look thrilled! (Along with the "thumbs up", he has a thing for going shirtless. I'm lucky to get him to leave it on when in public, so I don't fight it at home!)Easter baskets were a little lack-luster this year...I wasn't all that into it (but that's a different post for a different time!)

*And finally, enjoying conference from the comfort of our own reverence tents. There's not a better way to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior than by hearing the words and testimonies of His chosen leaders. What a great conference it was.

What I didn't (and still don't) love about Easter...

*Finding these all over the place!I hope you all had a spEGGtacular day, too! (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
