The end of March/beginning of April totally snuck up fast on me. I suddenly realized how much I needed to get done this week! To begin with – we needed to get Beth’s invitations done – and so we got the order sent in! (The above photo is what we received on Friday of this week)! I think they turned out very cute!

I just love it when the kids are happy and playful. They were in FLYING mode today and it was fun to see them have a good time together. I worked a lot today on a new kit and getting my Digitals store assistant jobs handled.

Joey worked from home today and was there to greet our cute Bethie Bunny when she got home from school. So cute! Being that Joey was home and I didn’t have a crop tonight – we actually went out to dinner at Olive Garden. It was delicious and so fun to be out together as a family on a weekday! We also stopped by our favorite ice cream shop (Farr’s Fresh) for dessert on the way home.

This year, through one of my favorite food blogs (ourbestbites.com), I discovered the art of silk-dying eggs. As soon as I saw it – I just knew I had to try it. So a couple of weeks ago, Beth and I went to the thrift store and bought some silk ties. Today we finally got the project done and for a first time try – I was so excited on how the eggs turned out! Much more fun than the dye kits that I buy from the store every year! The kids were excited to see the designs too! We will definitely be doing this every year!

The past few weeks, I’ve been trying to make a treat (cookies/brownies/desserts) for our family every Friday. Another of my food blogs (yourhomebasedmom.com) shared a recipe for Bunny Cookie Bark that I decided the kids would enjoy! We put our own twist on it by using both Golden and regular oreos in the same batch. I also don’t like candy corns, so we used M&Ms – the kids really loved it and the colors were awesome!
Joey had a break from his podcast today and so it was nice to have him home with us.

I really love seeing the interaction between my kids and their daddy! Today daddy read them a chapter of the book we have been reading and I just had to capture a little bit. Today was the start of General Conference and it was nice to stay in our PJs all day and listen to the prophet and leaders of the church, intermingled with playing and working. Joey was able to go to the priesthood session at the Stake Center.

Happy Easter! We woke up to a few inches of snow today. I just had to take a photo of the eggs in the snow! We were lazy again today and stayed in our pjs. We listened to the remainder of conference and it was nice to have that spirit in our home. The kids got some doodle pads, crayons, and markers from the Easter Bunny, so they spent a lot of time drawing pictures today as well.
