This picture was to cute to not post. Mollie is laying on our bedroom floor. Can you tell my bed wasn't made yesterday? Mollie is snuggling a pillow and one of her toys.

When the weather warms up, my roses are one of my favorite things! Sarah took a few pictures yesterday of these beauties.

Brad, Nate, and Shane. Friends for many years.

Ben, Nate, Sarah, and Jake. I think Ben was trying to tell me "enough pictures." :)

Ben giving me the evil eye. (:

Sarah and T.

Nate's best friend Evan got married on Friday! He married the cutest girl, Amanda. We are all so happy for them! We all went to the reception. It was such a special evening. We were able to see so many people we haven't seen in a while. We even ran into some wonderful neighbors we had about 15 years ago. It was so fun to catch up with them, and hear about their children. One of the blessings I find living in the same area for so many years is, getting to see how little kids turn into great young adults. My kids have had a lot of the same friends since they were little. Friday before we all left for the reception B & S showed up looking so handsome! I just had to take some pictures!

Sarah's photo shoot...

If you are ever looking for a photographer, I would highly recomend Ashley. You can check out her photography blog here www.embraceyourcreativity.blogspot.com

Day before yesterday Sarah, and I were lucky to be able to, spend the afternoon with my cousin Ashley. Ashley is not just my cousin. She is truely a wonderful friend, and such a great example to me. We share many stories about our kids, the love of motherhood, struggles of motherhood, the gospel, talents, laughter, similarities, ups, downs, and best of all friendship.

Here are a few pictures of the photoshoot she had with Sarah. I LOVE how beautiful they turned out! I know I may be bragging a bit, but I think that girl of mine is pretty darn pretty!

Mollie got in on the Easter egg decorating too!

We had a really nice Easter. We started off the day with going to church. Then we came home, and relaxed a little, then the cooking began! We had a yummy ham dinner with all of the fixins!

Cousins...Easter Pagent..Baskets...

We just spent 4 fun filled days with my Niece, Nephew, and his wife Alex. I have so much to blog about. The laptop the pictures are downloaded on, are over at the office, with Steve. I will post about our time spent together this evening, after Steve gets home.

Easter has been on my mind. We are planning on attending, the Easter pageant, at the Mesa temple this week. This is something I have been looking forward to. The true meaning of Easter is presented in such a beautiful, and tender way. If anyone wants to go, it starts at 8:00 P.M. on the grounds of the Mesa temple, each night this week. I also am going to go run my Easter errands this morning. Time to do a little Easter basket shopping. :) What do you put in the kids baskets? I would LOVE some new ideas!
