Cleaning and Organizing! This has been so much fun and a lot of work, but my spring cleaning is coming along beautifully. I am not finished yet, mostly because I took a week long break and I decided that Saturdays are not a good day for me to do my cleaning, also, my kitchen has taken me about 5 days!
Easter! We went over to Allan's parent's house for Easter and (like always) his mom put on an amazing easter egg hunt complete with a "store" of prizes in the basement!
Here is cute Natalie running out to start the hunt!
Here is Hailey finding and egg.
Here is Ally discovering money in one of her eggs!
And here is Lilly trying to eat a plastic egg (because everything is to eat!)
Here we are decorating real eggs!
And spending some time with our cousins!
Another day we went with Ally's Joy School to the Zoo.
We had a lot of fun seeing the animals, although in true Idaho fasion, it was a little too cold.
It was teacher appreciation week so I made Hailey's teacher this banner and a set of thank you cards. I also decorated her door and Ally's teacher's door, brought them all flowers.
Last weekend went down to Utah for a family reunion, it was at The Legacy Center so we also went swiming!
If you follow the link you will see a sweet picture of me doing Rock Band with some of my cousins!
Here is Allan and Natalie getting off of the water slide.
And Hailey and Ally on a different slide.
This reunion was a little bittersweet for me because my very closest cousin (pretty much like a sister to me) is leaving next Tuesday for Germany to live with her family for 2 or 3 years. This was the last chance that I got to spend some time with her, although I am trying to convince Allan that we should go and visit them for our 10 year anniversary!
I have also been doing a lot of crafts and here is the birthday banner that I made to hang up on the girl's birthday.
It is really long so it needed 3 pictures, but it turned out really cute! I was happy to embrace the fact that I have all girls and go with some very girly designs!
Lastly, I have been learning to coupon shop. Last night I went to the store for the first time armed with a lot of coupons. As I was checking out the grocer said, I think this reciept is going to be taller than you are... and it was!
