Getting Ready For Easter

The boys and their friends uncovered this gem last night, it was taken 11 years ago!










The boys together again...I really wanted them to do the same pose, but I thought just having them sit next to each other was "pushing it"!






We've been getting ready for Easter at our house.


I don't know if it is European or what (I was born in Germany) but I grew up always having an Easter Egg Tree. I love them and had to stop myself from buying more little ornaments this year. One of Parker's friends asked me what that was because he has never seen or heard of that before...then I he realized... "You have two???!!??" YEP!


















My flowers have really "weathered" the last 5 snowstorms really well! It is suppose to get up to 60 degrees this week, but stormy a few times, and most likely to storm on my birthday on Wednesday.













For years, my sister Erin and her family have painted wooden eggs for Easter. We painted our first in 2004. We started back up the tradition. This year, on General Conference Sunday, we had the Carson's over for cinnamon rolls, painted eggs, ate lunch and watched Madagascar 2. Kevin, Layla and Grandma Worthington came over too! We all had a great time!

This is the the eggs start out like...
Wooden Egg














Skier Egg



















Cracked Egg



















Pineapple Egg



















Ant Farm Egg



















Quilt Egg



















Glitter Eggs

April Fool's Day!



Besides Mother Nature's cruel joke of pelting us with snow this morning, April Fool's Day 2009 hasn't been so bad!

I paid cash for my groceries at Ream's today and the cute cashier tried to tell me they weren't giving change back to the customers anymore and that they would be donating the money to charity. I didn't believe her for a second because she tried to tell the customer in front of me that Ream's no longer accepts personal checks...the lady about had a heart attack.

Here's what I served for dinner: Fish Sticks & Peas

and for dessert: Chocolate cake with
vanilla frosting!









































The "fish sticks" were chocolate covered wafer cookies. I spread peanut butter on the outside and then rolled them in crushed graham crackers. For my NON-PB kid, I used honey. The "green peas" were Watermelon Airheads ~ Put in the microwave for 10 seconds, cut with scissors and then roll in to peas. The "Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Frosting" was meatloaf cooked in cake pans and then "frosted" with Mashed Potatoes. I made the cake last year and it was a HIT again!

John reminded me that I forgot to make the drink...and Parker said, "Oh! Yea! The Jello....that was a year ago? that seemed like just yesterday!" Last year I put orange jello in tall drinking glasses with a straw and let it set up.
