Holiday Fun

Growing up St. Patricks Day was always an annoying holiday- wondering if you would look like a geek if you wore green but worrying about being pinched or worse if you didnt - but when you have kids it is a lot of fun. The tricky leprechauns left shamrocks all over the house and kept pulling tricks on Abigale- turned her milk and yogurt green, messed up her room, and also left a scavenger hunt to find some fun toys. She loved it and still keeps talking about those leprechauns.

The presents
Easter was a lot of fun this year. Abigale had an Easter party with some of her friends and on Easter my parents came over for dinner and then we dyed eggs after Conference. Love this time of year but cant wait for it to really warm up. I dont think it has been over 60 degrees yet!
Her new favorite thing is to peel carrots for me:

I cant get this picture to turn but this is what my parents got Abigale. Her own b-ball hoop. Now she can play "just like daddy because daddy loves basketball"
