A few Easter picts














We had a nice Easter. We celebrated at Grandma Devey's on Saturday night, we had a little egg hunt for the kids and as always, delicious food from our wonderful Grandma! The kids had fun finding eggs, and eating candy. On Sunday at 1:38 am I had to go take Skyler's Easter basket away and make him go back to bed. The kids loved their candy and toys left by the big bunny himself. I made a yummy breakfast and then we headed off to church. Jeremy spoke in Sacrament meeting, he gave a wonderful talk. After church, we came home to find Easter grass all over the house. We shut the kids doors before we left, but Skyler's door does not latch, so our wonderful dog Annie decide to eat every last piece of his mountain of candy, i take that back, there was a single Whopper hidden amongst the debris. He was so sad, luckily our lifesaver Grandma Devey had left over candy so I swung by their house and brought some back home to Skyler. Jeremy was not feeling well after church, but by bedtime he was able to get up and he wanted to make the steak and shrimp we bought, so I put it on the skewers and he grilled it, unfortunately our meal did not cook right for some reason and so we just tried to eat it and ended up laughing about the whole thing and ended up ditching the meat and eating the yams. It ended up being a bit of a stressful day with Jeremy being sick and the dog/candy drama, but we just had to tell ourselves and our children that none of that stuff really mattered, what really mattered was that it was the day of remembering our Savior and his Resurrection. All the rest is just fun stuff that doesn't really matter in the long run. I promised Skyler he would look back on this Easter and laugh one day. Thank goodness they had a blast at Grandma's last night.

Poor Skyler. I hope Annie was ok, isn't chocolate really bad for dogs. I remember my dog eating my candy bars for school when I was young. I was so upset and she was fairly ill for a while but we all eventually recovered. ;)
