Easter Stuff!

Yup - I'm just a little behind again. The fun keeps on rolling in here at the West home! I feel like we have been GO GO GO since October! =) Anyway, we had a glorious Easter. It was great to watch General Conference and to have the Soter's here with us!

The week before Easter we had a little playgroup party/egg hunt at our house. It was so fun! Here are a few pictures from that:

Us right after the party ended.

Some of the group - I know there were some mom's lost in the jungle that is my yard - I'm sad I didn't get them in the picture! AND some seem to be lost in the shadow. Time for a super fancy camera I think! Now to convince Nathan. =)I totally dig Brenan in this picture!
Of course we colored eggs! It's tradition! This is the one and only picture we got!

Steve, Mandi and kids got here late Friday night. We didn't get to bed until 1ish because we ran to Walmart and then put together baskets. The Easter Bunny swung by our house the next morning and the kids had tons of fun hunting for their baskets and eggs!
Here they are waiting to go outside:

In between conference sessions we broke out the pool for the first time in 2010! It was such a perfect day for the outdoors!

These little turkeys liked climbing on things:

Then that night we actually HIRED a babysitter - unheard of for us! We are all about the swap! =) The boys went to the Priesthood session while we window shopped and ate dinner. I had a bit of a mishap with my flip flop. I ended up walking around with one shoe on and one shoe off for awhile! Luckily, we were right by an Old Navy. $3 flip flops here I come!

Why wouldn't I post this picture? It's amazing. =)

We made Easter Morning rolls on Easter Sunday - it was a fun way to teach the kids about Christ's resurrection.

And here we are sitting down to eat our lovely Easter dinner.

What cool friends we have. =) Thanks for the great weekend!

It's about darn time you added a new post! (I suppose in saying I ought to pull the mote or beam or whatever it is out of my eye since I never post). I have been waitingto see if you would post those awesome pictures of your coolest friends...the Soters! Somebody had to do it since you know I probably won't get around to it for another month at least. I especially love the one of me and you up close. I look super pretty in it. Then the other one just adds a couple (or 15) pounds to me. I suppose the camera doesn't lie though so I ought to just accept that I am a jumbo prego chick. That's okay. I miss you my dearest friend! That was seriously the best weekend ever! We need to do it again, and soon! You guys are the BEST! Love ya!

Awesome! I love the updates. I have missed you.
Fun visit with Mandi and the kids. I want to hear more about the Easter "roll lesson".
And yes your lice story gives me the hebbie jebbies. =( Ewww..So sorry. But you survived. I would have done the same thing and been a psycho laundry cleaning maniac.
Fabulous catching up.
