I haven't forgotten my boys!

So we have all been swept up with Brighton and we love her so much! I haven't forgotten about my sweet boys though! I have found that whoever said that the two's were terrible lied! I loved the two year old stage, now three, three is HARD!  They are such a challenge! I love them with all my heart and really want to be the best mom I can be for them even when I have no idea how to manage them. I hope I am doing well and they know how much I love them.

Family Egg Hunt & Brighton's First Easter

First of all I just want to say how thankful I am that I have the chance to repent and return to live with my Savior again. The Atonement gives us the opportunity and ability to repent of our sins, but it also provides us comfort during times of trial. I want to make sure that I am living the way that He would have me live. I love the holidays and it can be so easy to get  caught up in family dinners, new Easter clothes and the Easter bunny, and forget the sacredness of the events which bring us together to celebrate. It is important to remember the reasons that we truly celebrate Easter. We celebrate Easter to remember the Atonement, the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. Here is a great article on the meaning of Easter:

I am so grateful for my sweet children that Heavenly Father has trusted me with. I hope I am doing all I can to be a great mother to them. I know I have much to learn and much to teach them, but I know with the guidance from my Heavenly Father I can rear them up to be faithful children of our Heavenly Father.

After church and naps we walked over to my parents house for dinner and a egg hunt. I love how close we are to our family! My best friend growing up, Sadie, and he mom joined us for the festivities!

Love this picture with Sadie playing in the background with Brighton!

I'm not too sure what he is thinking here but it cracks me up!

Classic...Show me you basket hunny picture...not smiling!
