Easter


General conference was so wonderful and fitting for Easter sunday. I felt like everything that was said was exactly what I needed to hear right now. The passing of my dad has brought a new meaning to this special time of year. I can't believe today marks eight weeks, it feels so much longer. I am so indeed greatful for the atonement and resurrection of our savior, his love and understanding for each of our own heartache and pain. My dad loved listening to conference. He would always call me excited and kindly quiz me on my favorite talks. I wrapped up in a blanket made of his t-shirts and watched. I know we watched it together. I know he was there.

On a lighter note, I think Andy and I have created a new Easter tradition. Who needs to dye eggs when you can tie-dye clothes...

my special Easter dress
The monday before Easter we had our friends Jordan & Sierra over for a little tie-dye fest! Jordan suggested I tie-dye my white coat & wear it to work April Fool's day...too bad it was my day off : (
Ladies & gents, I'm afraid I've created a monster! Andy has been tie-dying everything he can think of ever since! Don't be surprised if the next time you see us we are all decked out in tie-dye.
Last but not least I created a very amateur Easter cake...'twas delish!
Oh & I even made a cute little baseball basket for Andy (opening day game is tonight)! Even though just two days before he said, "Jen do I have to get you an Easter basket, I think we are little old for that"! At least he's learning he's suppose to ask when he needs to buy me things for example Valentine's, anniversary...the answer is YES!!! Love you babe : )

Holy cow you look awesome in that outfit. I like the idea of tie dying shirts. Maybe we will try that next year. I love you and miss you so much Jen!

I love you guys! You seriously crack me up! I know exactly what you mean when you say Easter has a whole new meaning. Last year Easter fell on the 7th anniversary (I hate saying "anniversary") of Clayton's accident. You rock and I love that you and Andy are rocking tie dye!
