I've Forgotten How to Do This . . .

My brother Grant is nearing the end of his church mission to Madagascar! He will be home in just a few weeks. For the past two years I have had an excuse not to have a blog/keep a journal. I write letters to my brother and save them on my computer and call it good. That's journal writing! That's record keeping! My plan is to take all of the letters I wrote to my sister while on her church mission from 2012-2013 and all the letters I wrote to my brother while on his church mission from 2014-2016 and compile them all into a journal/hardback book. That way when my kids ask me years later what was going on in our lives during that time, I can pull out that book and show them! And now that Grant is coming home, I am trying to make more of an effort to blog so that I don't lose that habit. You have to start somewhere, right? The most recent pictures I have are from Easter. So here's a few:  
Meeting the Easter bunny. Jamie and April were half terrified/half fascinated by him.

 After our wonderful Easter Sunday at church. I loved all the bright colors of our dresses.
 Decorating bunny cookies at Grami's house!
 Hunting for eggs in Grami and Grampi Garcia's backyard.
 April was really getting into it with Auntie Alli's help.

 Found one!
 Trying to get a group shot.

 We love spending time over at my Mom and Dad's house and the girls love it too. We had a wonderful Easter!
