Happy Easter!

With the weather being so nice this week, it was a lot of fun to celebrate and get ready for Easter.

Sugar Cookies
We started by making sugar cookies but for some reason it was a very busy week and we ended up taking took all week to finish. I spent one day making the dough, one day baking them, and finally decorated them. I think it took so long because I let Abigale help and by the time we got done with one step we ran out of time, but it was still fun and she loved "helping" me.
Easter Egg Hunt
We had an Easter Egg Hunt with the Drysdales and Petersons and I am not sure who had more fun the kids or the parents watching the kids. I was surprised how much Abigale got into it as she raced around the grass picking up the eggs and putting them in her basket but the best part was coming inside and opening them all up.
Easter morning I set out an Easter basket full of some fun new toys and she loved everything. While she played with her new toys, Jonathan and I read some of the amazing articles out of this month's Ensign. It was the perfect Easter morning. We then went to church and then to Jonathan's parents house for a delicious Easter dinner and took family pictures. It was so nice to be with family for the holiday. Easter is such a special holiday- the sugar cookies and easter egg hunts and jelly beans are all a lot of fun but I hope everyone took some time to remember why we really celebrate Easter.

February . . .

I know it has been awhile since I have posted but I think it is just because nothing much has happened lately. Jonathan is loving his job (at least until April) and I am loving having a husband not in school and working 8-5. It is so nice to have a set schedule and have some sort of routine! Although not much happened we still had a great month. My parents made a few visits, we went on an actual date with friends and left Abigale with Jonathan's parents- where she did great, my old roommate and good friend Loni visited from Ohio with her two adorable boys,we went to the park any day the weather made it possible (thanks Nicole and Katie for making the park fun for me as well), and have just been hanging out. I hope everyone had a great month and keep crossing your fingers for more spring weather!

Abigale's Valentines Picture- it was the best one I could get because she did not want to smile- now she only wants to take the camera from me:
Abigale with Grammy and Papa:My parents bought Abigale this new little table from IKEA and she loves it!Jonathan and I were shopping and Abigale found this hat and it was love at first sight. Luckily, it was on clearance so we bought it for her. She loves to wear and pull it down over her eyes so she has to look up to see us and loves to check herself out in the mirror and model. It is pretty funny to watch.
Cute pics of Abigale rocking in the chair wearing the cute dress from her aunt Caitlin who lives in New York. Thanks Caitlin, she looked adorable!
