Sleepy Head

Rex doesn't really take naps anymore because if he does then he's up until 10 or 11 and I'd just rather he go to bed earlier than take a nap. But sometimes if he's had a full day he gets tired and sometimes he falls asleep where ever he happens to be at the time-

If You Dare

Two weeks ago Matthew was presented with his Arrow of Light in scouting. We are so proud of him for earning it! And this time I got to be pinned, yay! And now that he's in 11 year old scouts we don't have to go to Pack Meeting for a few years, yay! (uh, I mean dang it!)

The next night was his DARE graduation. He took the DARE program VERY seriously. Trust me, he can spout facts about drug and alcohol usage even the addicts don't know. Now we just have to wait a few years and see if it did any good... (haha). Matthew is a VERY good kid and I'm sure we have nothing to worry about. (Don't let me down, Buddy! :)

Eggsellent Easter!

I know this is really late in posting but better late than never! I love Easter! It was especially wonderful this year on Conference weekend. I thought it made for a beautiful uplifting time- in spite of the uncooperative weather. I always really go through Arizona withdrawals around Easter because the weather is so gorgeous down there at this time and I have such fond memories of Easter as a child that it's really hard for me to be up here, especially if the weather is bad and we have to hold our Easter egg hunt indoors. That is a major bummer! But we survived and had a wonderful Easter.

We LOVE coloring the eggs!

I love this picture mostly because of Owen in the background.
Yes, yes, you do.
Cool camo eggs!
Colby was napping (fortunately) during egg dyeing time. I kinda felt a little bad but I know we averted major messes by scheduling it during this time. As you can see we didn't forget about him.
The finished product. (Can you tell we have a bunch of boys in the family?)
Easter morning basket fun!
