Easter 2012.....Wow, really?

It seriously freaks me out how fast time flies....I swear it doesn't seem like a year since last Easter! I love spring feels so crisp and fresh outside and I love seeing all the colors outside come to life! I love that my family lets me dictate what they will wear for holidays....ha ha!!! Orange and Navy where the colors this year....(sorry Tom and Joel...ha ha) I love my family and I love Easter....I am so thankful that I have such a strong faith in Jesus Christ and know without a shadow of a doubt that he is our savior. This knowledge and faith has brought great blessings to my life.

Ahhhh, the joys of color-coordinating! I love it....the family....ummmm, not so much....but they humor me!
Everyone looks better in black and white! (but, I sure think my hubby is a cutie in color too)


Ahhhh, this little boy is the BIGGEST.BOOOGER.EVER.....when it comes to pictures! He would NOT take off his bucket or his Bama hat...this was the best picture I had of his Easter suit....little turkey!

Love these boys!

Love this family!

Love these penny loafers!!! (for you B!)

That darn hat!!

I got these masks as a joke, and the fam was surprisingly okay with them....ha ha! my Easter Bunny!

Too stinking his eyes!!

Cute little bunny....(and how does that broom keep getting in our pictures? grrr!)


This is an odd picture to add.....but everyone has always said that Jade looks like me and I never really agree....but, I totally see it in this pic...weird!

Love my lovie in this pic!

This kid....good times with a two-year old!

Double fisting it!

Love their smoochy faces!

Couldn't resist!!

Hope everybunny had a very Happy Easter!

Gearing up for Summer!!

We are so excited for summer this year! We didn't really use the pool much last fall when we moved in and I can hardly wait to get into that cool water on those hot summer days! (actually, fairly warm water since we got the solar cover...ha ha) It will still be refreshing and we are chomping at the bit to get some use out of it! Joel has been checking the temp. every day and every day he says he is going to get in it...(yeah, right) Anyway, we have also bought a few planters and Joel has been working on the yard the last several weekends and it's starting to look more inviting...we are trying to do a little at a excited!

A little dining spot!
A little seating spot!

Saige wanted to plant some flowers and she is remembering to water them every day! I love flowers! Joel planted some lavender for me and I hope they grow fast!

View from the patio with another little seating spot!

We decided to plant succulents...they do so well in the desert and I think they are awesome!

Another shot.

Our wish list is very, very long!! But, we'll get there someday! I'm hoping to get a covered patio next year and hopefully before summer really sets in, we will get more lounge seating and a swing....I am so looking forward to spending out summer days outside!
