Let's play "Peep, Peep"...(What color egg are you?)

We have some really good friends in our ward, the Herberts, who decided to host a "1st Annual Herbert Easter Bash". So we took our 5 kids and went and joined the other 55 plus kids who attended!!! Yeah... talk about a good time! It seriously was a great turnout. We had good food and they had some really fun games... (a live bunny chase where the winner took the bunny home... Needless to say I threatened my kids with their lives if they won... Ais remember Tina?) A "bunny sack" race, and a one yard licorice eating contest. Rich told the contestants after they started that he had opened the bag of licorice two days earlier so the licorice was nice and hard! They also filled up 500 or so eggs with candy so all the kids came home with a ton of candy. One of my friends said she was worried her kids were gonna be pooping sugar cubes! Cracks me up! Anyhow... good time with good friends makes us so thankful for the place that we now call home. We miss all of you and hope you enjoy conference weekend! Love!

Chilly Willy...

So tonight Garett had his first Little League game. It didn't start until 7:30 and by the time we got to the field, the wind was really cold. The little kids didn't mind (for awhile) they just made a tent out of the blankets and were giggling and laughing the whole time. It was so funny. By the time they came out of the "fort" Savannah's hair was full of static and Ethan and Ryan had gobbled up every snack I took to the game. All in all, Garett did great... one hit and he played first base. They were down 3-9 in the last inning and came back 8-9 by the end of the game. Still lost, but what an effort. It sure is fun to watch Garett play. He is a great athlete.
