Easter CelebrationsOf course you have to get dressed up for pictures on Easter, even if it is General Conference and all you are doing is having a quiet day at home! Our day was filled with coloring Easter Eggs, hiding and finding them, and enjoying our new trinkets, all in between conference.
I believe this is the first and only picture we have where both kids are smiling naturally! Aren't they just Adorable! I just LOVE this picture!
Another cute picture! It is so difficult to get Isabelle to not have a goofy look on her face, and for Abinadi to have anything but a blank look on his. There is no denying that they are turning into two amazingly wonderful kids!
My little photographer!
I am going to have to make Uriah relinquish his photographing privileges, I found he didn't take many pictures because he was waiting for them to hold still, or look nice, instead of just taking a million so that a few come out good. I'm certain you other mothers out there know what I mean when I say that kids never hold still for the perfect picture! I'm just giving you a hard time Uriah. ;o) I love you!!!!
I made this Easter cake for the YM/YW desert auction fundraiser. I am still working on figuring out how to cover a cake with fondant. The whole design ended up this way to cover the flaws I had. But I'm learning that sometimes covering the flaws can turn into a beautiful cake. One day I'll figure out how to do whats planned, it's nice in Alaska though. Everyone and their dog I knew in Colorado could decorate cakes, so it was never anything special or it would end up a competition instead of enjoying everyone's efforts, here everyone is shocked that this is even possible so I never hear comments of "I can do that better" or "did you see the cake so and so made? It's much fancier than yours." I'm not trying to say I'm better than anyone, or that I don't want anyone else to make cakes either. I'm just trying to say that it's nice that it's not a competition up here. I'm not big on competing over talents I just enjoy doing and improving on and wish everyone was the same way.
We love and miss you all, and hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
