I used a new pattern that I absolutely love! For a full post about the dresses you can check out http://www.theplumverbena.com/.
The Easter bunny spoiled the girlies with all sorts of goodies!
After church we headed to The Larson's for Easter dinner, and an egg hunt.
Of course, Elaine prepared a wonderful meal. And all my sweet Ansley would eat was canned raviloli... Notice the slight red around her mouth!? Children...
After dinner the kids had a little egg hunt. We didn't notice that Olivia went missing for about 5 minutes before we could gather all the kids. Little stinker was outside gathering eggs. Lots and lots of eggs. Hehe.
It was a beautiful Easter Sunday!

I have been thinking a lot about how truly blessed we are lately.
How grateful I am for the gospel. To have the truth. And an eternal family.
For a wonderful, hardworking, patient, supportive and loving husband.
Who is a fabulous, attentive father to our beautiful daughters. Sweet little girls, that want to do what is right.
I feel so blessed to be their mother.
For a family who loves us. Is interested in our lives, and our children. I know they would do anything for us.
Friends who are always there. Friends who check on us. Pray for us, and uplift us.
I feel so blessed to live in a beautiful home. That I get to decorate and make our own. To make a safe haven for our family.
We are lucky.
I never want to forget that.
A few weeks ago we took Olivia to the cardiologist, for an EKG and an Echo.
She has a soft murmur her pediatrician wanted to have looked at. While I really felt peace about it from the beginning, it is hard not to let your mind wander to the
Olivia ended up being perfectly fine.
And, had she not been, I know that would have worked out too. We are blessed to live in a time with great medical care. How lucky we are!
I recently spent a week in Florida with my Grandmother. It was such a blessing to be able to go. To leave my children in capable hands, and spend time with her. I am so grateful for that precious time. I don't know that I will see her again- or that if I do she'll remember me. But, I know that if even for moments that trip, she did. Such a blessing that week was.
I want to remember always to count my blessings.
The last few weeks feel like a blur. They have gone by berry quickly. The kind of weeks where I don't think I am that busy, but the week is over before I know it. Here are few phone pics from the last few weeks! (Livvy's hair is getting long! And Ansley had a dance performance.)
