Easter 2011

Jack had a blast this year hunting for eggs and eating infinity amounts of candy! He had THREE Easter egg hunts and by the third one he had the idea mastered.

As for Lily, we'll she just sat and looked cute. :)

Keep in mind, this was only my second time snowboarding in the last three years...and naturally, I'm not so great at getting off the lifts anyway...

So when I was getting all bundled up in my snowboarding getup this morning, I forgot to put the shoulder straps up on my snowboarding pants so they were just hanging freely behind me. I'm on the chairlift, second run of the day, Kyler and John on either side of me. I lean forward to get off the chair lift, but there's a small problem... I can't get off the chair. The next thing I know, I'm suddenly suspended in the air by my britches as the chair lift is still going! One of the shoulder straps of my pants is caught on the back of the chair. I'm yelling stop while laughing (deep, deep down inside), and getting wedgied by my pants as I hang there, the laughing stock at the top of the mountain. Kyler and John sure got a kick outta it. I can only imagine how awesome it looked. Oh yeah. When I finally freed myself and TRIED to get out of the way of the chairlift, I totally biffed it and the chair lift had to be stopped again...of course...I mean...IT'S ME. Geez.

If only getting off the chairlift was this exciting all the time, maybe someone would have filmed it and we would be sitting in the front row at America's Funniest Home Videos RIGHT NOW! It's ok, there's always a next time...and there probably will be with my luck :)

4 Weeks!

I would say our little Lily "is getting SO big!" But she's really not. She's still super tiny, probably not even nine pounds yet. But that's ok, I love my little shrimp. She makes our family feel more complete :)

2 Weeks: Stats

Now that Lily is two weeks old we finally feel like we're adjusting to having two kids! The first week was...well, a bit rough. But I think we're catching on and it's been lots of fun!

We went to the doctor this morning and found out she is 7 1/2 pounds, still 20 inches, and her head is 36 cm (up two cm from birth). I was surprised to hear she had only gained a half of a pound in two weeks since Jack gained a pound in the first week! But, Lily is being bottle fed which makes a big difference I guess.

Jack is getting used to having a baby around all the time. He has been getting a little jealous here and there so I share Lily with Jack's buddy, Bear, while Jack and I play.

General Conference Success

Sometimes I wonder if we are teaching Jack what he needs to know about the gospel. It's so hard to know if you are doing everything you're supposed to as far as teaching your children.

It's times like this that I feel like Heavenly Father is telling me, "you're doing alright."
