Happy Easter!

This is Sadie in her Easter outfit. I was too cheap to buy her an expensive dress from the store, so I made her this cute little skirt. I just made up the pattern so I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Wow...this Easter was such a fun time! It was great to be able to listen to the words of our apostles and Prophet as a reminder of why we celebrate Easter. Although it is hard to listen to General conference with a 2 year old running around. :) It was great though.

Sadie is getting old enough to kind of know what is going on...I can't wait until next year when she will be even more excited about holidays. Such fun.
Anyway...We started off our Easter fun on Saturday by attending a city Easter egg hunt. It was so cold outside, but it was really fun for Sadie and she did a good job collecting the candy. She also loved watching the other kids pick up candy too. It was cute.

Here is Sadie and Daddy figuring out their "strategy" to get the most candy. There were quite a few people there. Luckily they split it up into age groups so the oldest people Sadie had to fend off were three year olds. :)

She did such a good job hunting for the candy!

Check out all her loot!

This was us after all the candy was found. The event started at 10am and we were in the car on our way home by 10:10am. No joke. That is what our clock in the car said. It was good though because then we got to hear most of the first session of conference! And it was cold! And yes, that is me with crazy bed head....I didn't look in the mirror before we left. Oops

Then on Sunday morning, I got up and started making some cinnamon rolls, and while we were waiting for the dough to be done, we noticed that the Easter bunny had come to our house! So we got Sadie ready to go outside and see what he had left for her.

Yep...that meant I had to dig out her SNOW boots! There was quite a bit of snow on the ground. But she didn't mind.

She waded right out there and found all the treats that the Easter bunny left.

She had good eyes! I love how she is trying so hard not to get snow on her hand as she reaches for the egg.

Then we invited our downstairs tenant's little boy to come and join the fun. it was a blast. Sadie loved showing him how to get the eggs and put them in his basket.

Then Rob's sister who just got back from serving a mission in New York City came by and hung out with us for the day. Sadie took a little while to warm up to her, but she just loved having her here. We are so glad that she is back and are excited to spend more time with her.

Sadie and Aunt Crystal!

Our friends the Perry's also came over to watch Sunday's afternoon session of conference and they brought their little girl. Sadie loved her. And I love her face in this picture, she is so happy to be petting her on the head!

Here she is showing off her new tattoo she got in her Easter basket!

We hope everyone had a happy Easter! We sure did!

Well, I think your hair looks rather nice. I mean, I'd kiss you with that hair-do.

You should enter onto project runway. No joke! I can't believe how you can make your own patterns and turn old t-shirts into CUTE things. You have a skill that I am jealous of! It looks like you had a nice Easter. It was so great meeting you at Roberts Reunion this past summer. Hope all goes well with the baby on the way!
