Matthew's First Hair Cut

Matthew got his first haircut on Saturday! I had a dream on Friday that someone thought he was a girl, so I knew it was time for the cut. Grandpa Gunnerson gave him his first cut! Here are a few of the pics.

Easter Weekend

Happy Easter!!

We had a wonderful Easter Weekend! It started on Wedndsay when Darin's mom brought Matthew a little cute Easter bag:

On Friday night Darin and I dyed some hard boiled eggs!



Saturday Morning the Easter Bunny brought us our Easter Baskets and hid eggs around our apartment for me to find!! (The Easter bunny did a really good job hiding the eggs and I had a lot of fun finding them!) Us with our Easter baskets:





Sunday was a wonderful Easter day! Darin and Matthew took a nap together before church. Aren’t they cute?!


After church we went to my parents for a delicious dinner!! Here are some of the pictures from the afternoon.


I took orange rolls for the dinner. I was pretty nervous to make them, but I was glad that they turned out. For the recipe click here.

Darin bought me this beautiful Easter Lilly. The last flower just bloomed today!

I also made some peanute butter chocolate Easter eggs. For this recipe click here.

I won!!


My sister Heather posted on her blog a cute thing that went something like this:

The first FIVE people to respond to this post will get something made by me personally. What I make is my choice, but it will be made JUST FOR YOU! My choice. For you. However, like all things that sound too good to be true :), this offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- There is no guarantee that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you personally.
3- It will be completed sometime this year. :)
4- You will receive no clues as to what it's going to be. I'll let you post a request of some sort with your comment, but still... it could be anything!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange if I so desire... it may blow your mind! Or it may not. It may be very simple and predictable... but hopefully you will benefit from it!

And I was the first one to comment and I got a super cute gift!! She gave me an Easter basket filled with a homemade card (that was super cute!), the book “Gossamer” (for me to read in the tub), and four “Bath Bombs” (that were shaped like little Easter eggs! They smell amazing!! She made vanilla, pear-berry, green apple, and melon-cucumber. I have such a talented sister!

Now, I am not as good as Heather, so don’t expect anything great, but I am going to do the same thing! So, first 5 people to comment on my blog, I will make you some sort of something! Enjoy!!

Conference Weekend

I love General Conference weekend!! Every year there is always at least one message that I feel is just for me! This year there seemed to be several! I love hearing from our Prophet and Apostles, they always have messages that make me want to do better!

This year Darin was able to go to two sessions, and the last session was especially fun because our niece Breanna came down and spent it with us! We played conference BINGO, had cheese on toast, and decorated Easter egg cookies! We had a great time! Here are a few of the pics!

Our First Family Vacation!!

Last weekend we had our first family vacation with little Matthew! We went down to Darin's parent's house in St. George! The weather was BEAUTIFUL!! We had a great time with Darin's parent's, brother, and nephews! Matthew loved playing with Noah and Luke! They are great cousins! We went on a nice walk, I went for a run (and got lost--making my run a little longer), did some golfing, frisbee, and relaxing! We had a great time! Here are a few of the pics!



We had a wonderful time!! The only bad part was leaving the beautiful weather only to come home to a snowstorm in Bountiful!!
