Thankful for Families

Brad & I had such a great week/weekend with our families. I was so excited to spend time with both of them.

Brad's family came down on Wednesday night and stayed the night with us. They were here until Saturday afternoon. It was fun to have them there. We ate good food, colored Easter eggs, laughed, packed, cleaned, golfed, shopped, swam and had a good time. They came up for his sister Lisa's graduation. She graduated from BYU-Idaho with a Bachelors degree in Communications. We are so proud of her!!!

On Saturday afternoon, we went to my parents house in Soda Springs. My sister, Lisa and brother Telford were both home too! We also ate good food, laughed, colored Easter eggs, went on a walk to the geyser and had such a good time. We were there until Monday afternoon. 

While we were at home, I made a quilt. A few weeks ago, my cousin had a baby shower & there she received this really cute rag quilt. I decided that was something I could sew and sew I did. It was simple to sew and it turned out really cute.   It is 1/2 yard of seven different flannel fabrics.  Cut 2  3-inch strips & 2  6-inch strips and sew together.  The seam is 1-inch.  Cut, wash & dry.  



While coloring Easter eggs, I turned my family into eggs.


Dad, Mom, Rachael, Brad, Lisa, Tauna, Dustin, Jaxon, & Telford
Don't I have such a cute family?

Chena loved being at my parents house. She was free to run & play and not be in her cage all day. I found this cute bunny ears at Walmart for a dollar that I put on her just for fun. She was really good and left them on long enough for Lisa to get some good pictures.

These are some cute pictures for Brad & Chena. They are such good friends.


Lisa & I got matching white jackets for Easter :) Thanks Dad!


We are so thankful for our families and the chance we had to spend with them!!! I don't know where we would be without all the love & support from them. It is comforting to know we are an eternal family & can be together forever, thank goodness for the gospel. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
