We had a wonderful Easter Sunday! First we went to church and I found out Saturday
night that the other Beehive teacher was in the hospital so I was going to be in charge of the lesson. I decided to show the last half of "The Testaments". It was very powerful and
of course I cried the last ten minutes. That movie gets to me every time.... even though
I've seen it a dozen times, the ending touches my soul and I am reminded of how much the Savior loves me. Sacrament meeting was wonderful....great speakers and Beautiful Music!
We came home and I started dinner and we just had a nice, relaxing day! My parents came down to eat and then we had an Easter Egg Hunt, played outside for a bit soaking in the warm air, and simply enjoyed each others company!

My Favorite Easter Decor.....

The tradition continues... Jen and I made our
peanut butter eggs
that we have had every year for as long as I can remember!

Each year I like to get the Kiddies a little something for Easter.
This year I decided to get them each an umbrella!
They LOVED them and played with them ALL afternoon!
It was so cute to watch my three angels strut around with such excitement!
I hope they don't break them before the first rainfall of the season!

Is it spring already?

Geesh...where did this month go? Has it really been a month since my last post? I've been a really bad blogger haven't I? I've been so wrapped up in my own "personal" things that I have forgotten about keeping you *in touch* with the DeGraffs!

Easter is early this year and I'm kinda having issues with that, so we've decided to just keep things as simple as possible around here. We have spent A Lot of time outside this past week or two! Our yard is quite the wonderland for a two year old and two four year olds! As I was tucking Gracie in today she couldn't stop talking about how much she LOVED playing outside! Even little Max has turned out to be quite the adventurist climbing all over the place striving to keep up with his brother and sister!

Any day now Spring Cleaning mode will kick in but... it seems to be taking it's time this year. It just hasn't hit me yet. In fact, even my daily chores have been neglected. I mean, our house isn't completely trashed, but I can't bring myself (or the kiddies) to stay inside for more than a few minutes! In other words......
I meant to do my work today, But a brown bird sang in the apple tree, And a butterfly flitted across the field, And all the leaves were calling me. And the wind went sighing over the land, Tossing the grasses to and fro And a rainbow held out its shining hand- So what could I do but laugh and go?

Yep, This just about sums up my life the past few days! Outside or running the kiddies around the valley to their little preschools and other activities!

Tomorrow I need to get into gear and finish preparing for Easter Sunday!
