Just because

It's quite possible that I was ecstatic that Easter was the same day as general conference.  Because then I didn't have to worry about dressing the kids all up for a fancy Easter church picture.  That was a definite win for this lazy mom.

However I did have this adorable Easter-ish dress hanging in the closet that Liv wore the week after Easter.  I don't know who gave it to her. . . but someone did and it's beautiful.  So she wore it the week after Easter.  And the boys wore the same old khakis with a button up shirt and tie.  With stains.  On everything.  Because they can't function without writing on their clothes.

Trampoline faces

So this is not really a trampoline face.  But this is the face he gives me any time I point the camera at him, hoping for a normal face.  Sigh.

It's finally staying above 60 during the day. Although it rains pretty much all the time.  But hey, I'll take it over the freezing cold.

Look how cute!


We had the regular egg hunt at the church on Saturday before the first session of general conference.  And then we had another egg hunt at Sherri's and also a yummy lunch after the first session of conference on Sunday.

On Saturday after the the egg hunt, Brice had a bunch of stuff to do around the house, which included taking a load of junk to the dump.  And he took the boys with him, and Livvy took a nap.  So I watched the first session all by myself.  And it was wonderful.

And I didn't even feel at all bad or guilty that the boys were not watching.

Because sometimes when you sit by your kids alone at church, and then you head off to primary for the remaining two hours of church, getting to sit through a meeting where you actually get to feel spiritually uplifted is a rare occurrence. 

There was one brief moment when it first started that I thought, "I'm a terrible mother.  The kids and Brice are not watching.  The kids are probably going to turn into drug dealing pot heads because I let them skip conference and it will be all my fault."  And then I laughed a ridiculous manic laugh in my head and I thought, "Heheheheheheheheheh let them!  It will have been worth it for these two hours of glorious peace."


Anyway.  Egg hunting was fun.

Sometimes it's essential to pause the mad dash for eggs and scratch your butt.  Don't you know.

Also Livvy's outfit was so cute that she gets a special post of her own.  Not surprisingly.
