Random March Photos

Here's my post for all of the cute March photos that didn't make it into a post. Enjoy!

The kids enjoying ice cream. Yes, we still strip our kids down to eat things like that at home. Those days are coming to an end soon, I'm sure. :(

 Lila's Play-doh castle with her unicorn Magic as the queen... and bits of Play-doh in the background.

I know these photos seem really random, but I was really happy with them. It was Teacher Appreciation Week for Lila's teacher so I made cupcakes for her preschool teacher and aides for one of the days. I really wanted a cute box to put them in, so I made some boxes on my Cricut. I even put a plastic covering on the see through part, even though you can't tell in the pictures.  I love how they turned out! 

Sydney's baptism cake that I made. I had to take a picture of it after the disaster of Hallie's. I still cry inwardly when I think of that.

 One of my favorite pictures of my kids. Micah took it one day while I was at work. It seriously made my day!

That's it for March!

Easter Weekend 2016

I love Easter. I love all holidays, but I really LOVE Easter! We do the typical egg hunts and such, but we are also careful to make certain the kids understand what Easter is really supposed to be about. We have a great love for our Savior, Jesus Christ, and hope that our children will feel and do feel the same way. 

We started off the holiday weekend by spending time at Grandma McSweeney's house with family. We had a fire and enjoyed some food. 

This is the treat that I brought... banana cream pie cookie cups. They were delicious, if I do say so myself.

Most of the cute cousins who were there.

Then, the cousins got to participate in an egg hunt. It was the only one my kids did this year, but it was great. They got so many eggs and other fun things. We love spending Easter at Grandma's house. 

The eggs dotting my Mum's front yard.

Little baby Vance.

My dad also sent things from Australia for the grandkids and the big kids, too! We are so spoiled! Thanks Dad/Grandpa McSweeney!

My Mum gave each of the kids the book Gethsemane. It goes along with the Primary song. I love that song and so does Lila. She always says that it's her favorite. The pictures in the book are beyond beautiful as well. It's a great addition for our family.

Sunday morning, the kids got their baskets and new Easter clothes. I didn't get a picture of my kids in their outfits, but they sure did look adorable. 

After church, we enjoyed a delicious meal. I didn't take a picture of all of the food, but I did take a picture of the bunny rolls that I made. So cheesy, but I love cheesy.

Happy Easter everyone!

Mommy-Son Date

For Brighton's date he wanted to go see some animals. First, we went and got dinner then we headed off on our adventure. Call me lame, but we just went to PetSmart. I was embarrassed at first about doing something so simple for him, but let me tell you, he LOVED it! He actually did NOT want to leave when it was finally time for us to go. We honestly were there for about an hour. Who knew it could be so entertaining?

I love the simple things. Just like with Lila, it was so much fun spending one on one time with my little guy.
