The kids enjoying their Easter "buckets"! They all got a clue as to where they were. Elise was the only one who figured out the clue without help. We celebrated early because I am going to Utah during Easter (without kids) and I didn't want to miss anything.
Henry enjoying his favorite fruit snacks.
Elise holding the blue parrot she was hoping for from the easter bunny. She has a matching red one that she loves. She told me..."that easter bunny sure is a smart guy".
Happy 8th Birthday Elise! Can't believe she is eight already. I remember when she was first born I was so shocked at how different she was from Claire. PALE! BALD! BLUE EYES! I stayed up the entire first night because I couldn't stop looking at her. I felt an instant special bond with her. She was the easiest baby by far of the four kids. I truly believe it was Heavenly Father's way of increasing my love for her and to make that bond so strong to help us during the years to come. She has a great sense of humor even when she is not trying...this girl is hilarious. Love you Elise!
Okay I had to post this picture! It seriously took her a minute to make a wish. Notice the candles getting smaller and smaller! She was dead serious about this wish!
