Easter Sunday

I love Easter Sunday.  Love church, love the food, and love the company.  We got together with our good friends for Easter dinner and did another small Easter egg hunt which of course the kids loved.  We gathered at the Slivka's new home.  They have a fantastic view from the backyard of the desert and some mountains.  They also have grass, which is quite a treat in Tucson!
Mylie trying to hold all the babies and bottles they have.  She kept dropping them and we thought that was pretty funny!
Love this Daddy-Daughter picture.

You better believe it, once Mylie discovered the candy, she pigged out.  No more egg hunting.
Too bad the boys' picture is blurry!!!
My awesome girl friends.
My favorites!

Easter Egg Hunt

My friends and I organized an Easter Egg Hunt for our kids.  I brought close to 50 eggs.  We started the hunt, Mylie picked up about 3 eggs and then realized there was candy in them.  She plopped herself down on the ground, opened up the eggs, and started to stuff herself full of colored jelly beans.  She had no interest in finding anymore eggs--all she cared about was that candy!  Darned candy.  We had fun anyway.  Here is Mylie and some of her cute friends.  Garrett, Henry, Brooklyn, Trevor, Mitch, Brynlee, Lucy and Livvee.  (Mylie sure misses you!)

St. Patty's Day...a little late

For St. Patrick's Day we had a little party.  Everyone brought green food, the kids looked for gold coins and played pin the shamrock on the leprechaun, and the adults played green Family Feud.  (Which was an awesome game by the way).  Melissa and Landon won so they got a photo session, OH so cute!

Here are just a few pics of our fun evening.

How Much I Like California
How Much I Love California
How Much I Adore California

That's right.  I guess I can just go into the last 3 items listed.  Why do I love California?  Well funny I ask because almost everyone I know would say, (or think, I could tell it in their faces), "WHY would you want to move to California?  It's too expensive, too crowded, and the air pollution is horrible!)  Well phooey to money, people and pollution, I don't care!  First off, money is overrated (HA!--I tell myself that to make it bearable).  Second, I LOVE people, so what's the big deal?  Third, the pollution clears up for a good part of the year.  I'll take it for the AWESOME weather that I get here.  May I inform you that our weekly forecast is in the 80's as a high ALL week long.  And not to mention it's nice and cool in the late afternoons/evenings, throughout the night and in the morning.  Which makes fora nice, cool breeze from the open windows during these times.  Have I convinced you yet?  Well no worries, I'm just getting started.  We are only 15 minutes fro a major airport, 25 minutes from a temple, 4 minutes from our church, 1 hour from the beach, 40 minutes from Disneyland, and 1 hour from Richie's sister and her family.  We have grass, trees, mountains and singing birds.  And the shopping here is amazing!  You've got every store you'd ever need and then some.  I could go on if I thought about it longer, but I'm done talking.  I'm done trying to convince you.  If that didn't then I don't know what would.  Perhaps for some of you it will just convinced you to take a little vacation out here and visit me!  TTFN.  =)
