We had a WONDERFUL Earth Day this year...probably because 1. It's the first Earth Day we've ever celebrated and 2. Darin had it off for work!! Wahoo!! In honor of Earth day...and because we were going to anyway, we bought lots of new plants! Darin built me my very own herb box, and we bought some herbs to start us off. Darin also got some tomato and cucumber plants. We also bought some new trees!! When we moved in we only had 2 trees in our yard, and now we have 7! We have a peach, apple, apricot, pear, another peach, and a pluot in the back yard, and we just got a flowering cherry for the front yard!! Yay for trees!!
Our new tomatoes
Our new awesome herb box that Darin made!
The Easter Bunny came to our house on Saturday morning. I LOVE when the Easter bunny comes!!
Darin and Matt with their Easter baskets!!
Even Lindsay got a basket, and she was super excited about it!!
Saturday afternoon my mom and I made cookies together. Lindsay pretended to help!
I made these cookies for my Young Women lesson. I was really happy with the way they turned out. However, I left Matthew alone in the kitchen and all but 1 got destroyed. I will admit, I was a little teary over that one. So, I headed to the store at 9:30pm and the girls got boring store bought cookies. Oh well.
Easter was GREAT!! We got a few family photos:
We went to my parents house for a DELICIOUS Easter dinner!
My cute niece Becca gave a little Easter lesson and did a great job!
Ben and Kristy made some yummy dessert...and pretended it was their wedding cake. She made some darling cupcakes, and then a carrot cake/cheese cake layered together!! SOOO yummy!!
Then all the kids went on a fun Easter hunt!
Then Matthew got a little Grandpa time and Lindsay got a little Grandma time!
It was an absolutely WONDERFUL Easter!!
