Happy Easter!

We had such a great Easter! First of all, Dane got his first package in the mail from his Gram (a.k.a my mom) & Steve! As you can tell, he LOVED the peeps!
Later that day, my mom and Steve ended up showing up to spend the Easter weekend with us! Man did we have such a great time. We colored eggs which was a blast! My mom and I had a hard time trying to figure out what color the tablet was so she would stick them on her tongue and turned it colors! Dane liked the stickers that came with the egg coloring set. Plus my mom got him this little caterpillar and it moves and he was trying to figure out how it was moving! Ha total classic Brent! I swear the kid is starting to remind me of Brent more and more every day!!
To say the least we had so much fun. We went out to dinner at a restaurant in Santaquin and it was soooo good. The menu said that everything was served with a scone...okay well when they brought them out, they were GINORMOUS! As you can tell Brent was holding one...it looked like Idaho, upside down! Dane didn't sleep much due to he didn't want to miss out on anything! He finally fell asleep in his car seat holding his shark!! Cute boy!!

My mom and Steve had to head back on Saturday and then 20 mins. later my cousin and his wife showed up!! We had a blast with them too! They had to go to a reception in Lehi so we went with them and then we went to Cabela's after that. We fed the fish, (good thing we had Ry to shake the food machine so we could get some) looked at the aquarium, took pictures (sorry Barb and Ry, somehow that picture I took of you guys didn't save...booo). Ha, then Easter morning came around and I was getting ready to hide eggs for everyone but they all woke up!!
Ohh well, we still had a great time! Thanks everyone for coming to visit us...PLEASE come back again!!!

Easter Craft

So my mom e-mailed me this awesome/fun Easter craft! Dipping peeps in chocolate! I wanted to do something fun for our neighbors and I thought this was perfect. I was really easy too. I just melted some chocolate chips and dipped the peep in chocolate. Then I just placed a stick through them and sprinkled some Easter sprinkles on them. Love how they turned out!!
Then I wanted to make some Oreo cookies with yellow frosting! They all turned out great and had a blast making them!
We love this time of the year and so grateful for Jesus Christ and his resurrection! Happy Easter to all!
(Tomorrow night we are decorating eggs!!!)

Can he get any cuter?

Wow, this cute little boy just melts our hearts! We thought we would get him a new car seat considering he is getting so big. He is weighing at 23 lbs and is almost 30 inches long! We thought we would go for a ride and try it out and he loved it. Every time we looked back at him he would just smile at us!
Also, his new thing is he LOVES to ride in shopping carts. He can explore so much more. He is starting to love more and more food. New favorite is vanilla yogurt and cottage cheese. He thinks he has to try everything that we are eating too!

This last weekend was General Conference. We really enjoyed our weekend getting to listen to the speakers! While Brent was at the Priesthood Session I thought that it would be fun to start a tradition with Dane and do something fun/creative while he is gone. So I found this cinnamon popcorn recipe that I have been dying to try. Plus we thought we would fix Brent a treat for when he comes home. So we had a blast making treats together and watching the basketball games so that I could inform Brent on who was winning when he got home! Also, last Thursday and Friday it was just beautiful here. So we thought we would take advantage of the nice weather and headed out to the golf course! We thought we would just start out hitting balls a couple of times to see how he likes it. Well, Dane loved it and people watching and the warm weather!Poor little guy is teething (we think). He has been a bear cat the last few days and has all of a sudden started waking up in the night just crying. He is constantly chewing on his fingers and there seems to be more drool than usual along with a runny nose, some ear pulling and rosy cheeks. Luckily no fever! So I've been trying everything to keep him comfortable without over dosing with the meds. He usually gets worse in the evenings so I let him have some of my creamie the other night and it was a hit! He loved it and after he had some he calmed down and was happy as can be! Is that bad that I'm feeding my 7 1/2 month old creamies? Haha there could be worse things I figure! Even through it all, there still seems to be smiles that I can get out of him!!

Any of you great mom's out there have any good advice?
