Happy Easter!


My heart is very full today. This is one of the most joyous & glorious days celebrating the biggest gift that has ever been known to this world. I will never be able to pay my Savior back but am very grateful for the chance to follow His example knowing that I will fall but also knowing that I can get back onto the path.

I know that my Redeemer lives.


Made the kids wait on the other side of the gate while we tried to have a little control before we let them loose into my parents back yard to collect all of the treat filled eggs. I can't believe we even got any pictures today with all of the ants that existed in their pants. Weird that I have 5 kids.

candy + kids = a no go

We're back to broccoli and quinoa tomorrow.

Beautiful family!

Ha--the candy! Wouldn't it be funny to stuff the eggs with lima beans and carrot slices just as a way to combine Easter and april fools day? Would the kids see the humor in that?

I am also LDS and I love every time you mention your faith on your blog. Coming from such a gorgeous, style-filled woman, it shouldn't, but somehow might, come across more palatable to some people. Thanks for not being ashamed of your beliefs.

Sometimes a gate is needed. Enough said.
