Wait for it...


BOO!!!
BEWARE. This pumpkin may be lurking in your closet.

Anyway... Because I'm awesome (and had the camera) I was first in the backyard for our extended-family
Easter-egg hunt. And while many of the pics ended up all a-blurry (Kids looking for candy just won't give me the time of day. Go figure.) I managed to pull a few out of the collection to share...
I would post other winning pics of the many candy-crazy cousins but you're here to see my kids, right?

So our Easter was nice. Kids, candy, chaos, conversation aaaaand CONFERENCE. Us Mormons get to hear (via broadcast) from our church president, Prophet Thomas Monson, his counselors, apostles and other general authorites every few months. How cool is that? The time spent listening is wasted if I don't internalize the inspired words and become a better me. So Monday brings a renewed commitment to
1.
daily scripture study and
2.
watching my
"mommy-tone" when the little ones, perhaps, decide to bathe my computer, or bury my keys in the backyard, or bake socks, or, or, or...

And just for fun- Here's a shot of my brother and his spunky-fun lady-friend. Thanks guys, I remember when Mike'n I were dating and it was us doing nothing but cuddle on the couch.
So there's goal #3- cuddle more.

Woohoo, GO Kendall! I miss that kid.

Baking socks...hilarious. I actually have a goal to work on my reactions to my children too...I was going to blog about it too. It really is amazing how different it makes you feel when you choose to not yell.

Great goals! I love how conference helps me get back on track with my goals. I guess church should do that every week, but somehow conference does it so much more!
