My favorite time of the year!

I have been blog absent for awhile. I guess I have been too busy with the dreaded softball (still not ready to discuss that), trying to find a sitter for Addi while I am at the previously noted horror, and fighting my brain tumor (alright, just bad headaches each and every day). But I am trying to have a better attitude today because it is my FAVORITE day of the year...Easter!



It is officially Spring everyone! I am so happy I am pooping easter eggs! I simply love it all. I love playing in the park with my baby...


Now all the fun Easter festivities! I forced Ron and Addi into dying eggs with me, Addi tried to bite through the shell, and she is a determined little lady so I guess tried is the complete wrong word. After we got the shells out of her mouth, I realized that she wanted nothing to do with the eggs and simply wanted to go to bed after having to spend the entire afternoon at the ball park... There was also the fun egg dipping with the cousins....we strapped her in the high chair so no more eggs would be punished.
Easter morning finally arrived and Addi was the best little basket hunter! Alright, it was right in the middle of the floor, but she got a kick out of the cool stuff the Easter bunny left her, she got 5 new binkies that Macie had her eye on all morning, a new vibrating tooth brush (we dont believe in manual labor) and new bath toys that Ron read were made in China so they went promptly in the garbage. Sigh. We also got to go to our stake conference where Jeffery R. Holland spoke and it was absolutly amazing! Both his message and the fact that Addi slept the entire time so I actually got to listen! Awesome day!
Too many cute picts to post them all...time for a slide show!

Happy Easter, it sounds like you had a great holiday. How is softball going? I bet it makes for some really long days!
Addi is such a cutie! Her Easter dress is adorable!

Yah, you're back! Easter is awesome, and I just love dying eggs! Next year, I'm doing my own dozen. Anyways, sounds like a fun time, and I laughed about the bath toys from China that got thrown away. Just a few weeks ago, Rob said the same thing. No more Made in China shtuff. That should make shopping more challenging. Hey, what's with the headaches? Is softball just incredibly stressful and life and everything, or has this been going on for some time? I'm a little worried lady, ease my mind and tell me it's nothing.
Happy Easter to you too, Addi is absolutely adorable, I love all her facial expressions. She seems like such a happy lady!
