Spring Break

So this last week was my spring break and it was wonderful! I was able to get a lot of spring cleaning done which felt great! Mike and I were able to go out to Colorado for a few days to help my mom out with a workshop and we had a great time! Unfortunately we were only there for about 40 hours but It is always nice to go home! My little sister Madison was able to fly back out to Utah with us and she stayed with Mike and I for the weekend! It was my mom's birthday on the 17th so we went to dinner with her and then had a little party at my Nannas house! We all gave here an ipod and she was so excited!!!!

Maddie and I went to a baby shower for my friend Afton and we had so much fun! We both LOVE babies! She is due on the 16th and we are so excited for her little one to come! Then on Sunday we stopped my the Mt. Timpanogas temple and took some pictures with Maddi, it was a BEAUTIFUL day! Then that night we went up to Bountiful to visit my grandpa and his wife. There is a girl from Vietnam who has been living with them for about 5 years and she is going to culinary arts school. Well she was making some spring rolls for a a party she was going to and she was doing all sorts of fun tricks with the food so she taught me how to do some of it! I actually did it and it looked good! I was so excited! This is my creation! Overall it was a great spring break!

Our Easter Weekend

This weekend was wonderful! My Sister-in-law Michelle and her family came down to Provo this weekend and we had a blast with our nieces! Friday we went out to dinner with Michelle, Russel and the girls and then after we went to their hotel and went swimming! We had a grand time! Then on Saturday Mike and I went to school for a few hours and I helped him out with a little homework :) Later Friday night we went up to Salt Lake to watch the Jazz game with Michelle and the family. It was a very hard game to watch but we had a great time and had a lot of fun being with family! The girls are getting so big and are so much fun to be with! We love them oh so much and can not wait for #3 to get here... we are all very excited to see him!
Then this morning mike and I exchanged our little Easter baskets for each other colored our eggs! Mike grilled some steaks and I did the side dishes and we had a wonderful little Easter dinner! It has been a wonderful Easter weekend filled with family and lots of time with each other!
How thankful we are for this Easter season. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband who loves me and cares for me. We are thankful to live so close to the temple and that we are able to attend regularly. We have been blessed to have the gospel in our lives and to be raised with parents who love us and taught us that our Heavenly Father loves us too! We know that our Savior lives! He gave us his life so that we might be able to return to live with our Father in Heaven. We are truly blessed, to have each other and to have such wonderful family and friends!
