Our New Home

OK, so we finally got a chance to snap a few shots of our new home. We're not quite done decorating...the office is filled with boxes and the walls in Chloe's room are bare, but we're getting there. We'll hopefully have a few pictures of the outside soon...the sprinklers were just installed and the grass should be going in any day now.

Anyways, the place is 1,615 square feet and has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. We've been very pleased with everything so far. Thanks again to everyone who helped us move in.

Family Home Evening

For FHE tonight, we decided to have a picnic dinner at a local park. The weather has finally turned nice and we were not about to pass up a night like tonight by sitting inside.
After dinner, we walked around and played at the park. Chloe is such a little explorer. She wants to go everywhere...especially where she knows she is not supposed to go. Her defiant personality has started showing a lot more lately and I think we are going to have our hands full when she gets older.

April Showers....

We all know the saying "April showers bring May flowers" well, I don't think they were talking about snow showers. The only thing this type of shower will bring in May is frozen flowers. This picture is from our front door and it is still snowing. Ahhh... don't you just love Utah weather, especially when you are on spring break!

However, on a positive note, Chloe has learned a new word. She kept looking out the window and pointing at the snow, so I would tell her "thats snow." Well, when she woke up from her nap earlier she pointed out the window and said "no" as in "snow." She is a quick learner.

Happy Easter

This year we celebrated Easter on two days. On Saturday we went over to my mom's house for an egg hunt with Chloe's cousin Kadence. It was so fun to see how excited Chloe got when she found the candy. All she wanted to do was hold as many pieces in her hands as she possibly could. When I could convince her to put the candy in her basket so she could get more, she would put them in, pick up the new piece, and then promptly pick up all the rest of her candy.

Chloe also learned how to open up the candy. I turned away for a second and the next thing I know she has a chocolate bunny in her hand. This girl loves chocolate- she must be related to her mother!

After the egg hunt we went outside to play. Kadence has a toy mustang and Chloe had a ball watching Kadence drive it around. She kept chasing after it and laughing. We tried to put her in but she wanted nothing to do with it.

Saturday evening, Aaron's parents came over to see Chloe for Easter, but we were having so much fun that we forgot to take pictures. They gave Chloe some delicious suckers and it was her first taste of one. At first she tried to bite it but then she got the hang of it and loved it.

On Sunday we had our own egg hunt at home and Chloe did a much better job this time around. We had all the candy in plastic eggs so she didn't realize what was in them. Once she had put them all in her basket, I opened one up to show her and that was the end of the egg hunt. She tried to open up as many as she could and stuff the candy in her mouth.

We spent the rest of the day at my mom's house having dinner and playing games. It was a wonderful Easter and I am so glad to have my family close so that I can spend time with them. I am also so grateful for the true meaning of Easter and for Christ's resurrection.

We're In

Well, after a messy, rainy night we're all moved into our new place! Now comes the fun part of unpacking and organizing. I had the camera out all ready to take pictures of the madness but in all the madness I forgot. I will post some pictures of the new place once we get settled. A huge thanks to all who helped (you know who you are) and have a happy General Conference weekend!
