easter
































our easter was pretty low key. i helped dye eggs with my sil while in california {more about that later} but there's really not much you can do with a 4 month old. no easter egg hunt, no big baskets but I did make sure everyone got something. haylee got a toy bunny i made her as well as a baby Book of Mormon story book. andrew got a tshirt, a water gun full of jelly beans and a pen that says "worlds best dad". then finally, i got me some fun nail polish and hair ties.
surprisingly, i enjoyed how simple it was. yes, i loved getting my family gifts and I can't wait to hide eggs for our kids to find; it was great just focusing on Jesus Christ. because of him, there is purpose to this life on earth. there is no fear in death. i will be with my family again. I am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

like mother, like daughter

someone is following in her mother's footsteps; she has become a thumb sucker. she still isn't fully committed to it yet, but that's only because she forgets how to get her thumb back in her mouth. andrew is not of fan of this. i just hope that this stage doesn't last as long as mine did {according to my mom, i didn't stop until i was in grade school; then i only sucked my thumb when i was tired}

sundays with brittany & jay


the best part about having early morning church is that we have pretty much all day to play! this last sunday, we had a picnic with brittany and jay as well as played a frizzbee game. everyone enjoyed their time outside. now utah's weather just needs to make up it's mind so we can go outside more often.

campus outing



can you tell that we like to hang out with the halls?! we had some free jumba juice coupons so we made the afternoon of it up on campus with them. andrew really wanted to see how ellora would react to some of the hands-on experiments at the eyring science center. we were all pretty entertained! haylee was so excited that she pooped all over herself and me... good thing i put extra clothes in the diaper bag lol
