Happy Easter!

I know I'm way late. My camera was lost, but my family so graciously took pictures of my kids for me. I got them in my email today, and I couldn't wait to post pictures of my adorable girls!
Of course we had an Easter egg hunt and Gma and Gpa's.

(I love this picture. I think it perfectly illustrates Easter egg hunts.)

Aliah and Sammy searching.

Aliah and Daddy checking out her loot.
That egg had $1. Spencer found an egg with $10! Hurray!

No holiday would be complete without a craft! I made a bunch of shirts with bunnies on them and matching flower clippies, but I gave them all away before I got a picture. So if any of you who got one wants to take a picture and send it my way, that would be awesome!

This is Inara's Easter basket that I made this year.

Here's a close up of the fabric. I LOVE it!! I've never been very good at picking coordination fabrics before, but I think I did a good job on these so I want to show them off!

It's BY FAR the hardest craft I've ever made. I got better and better so the top is much nicer looking then the bottom. But oh well! There's joy in the learning of it!

Your Best Hour

Visiting Teaching was great today. How is it that I always learn more then I teach? This month the message is about studying the scriptures. The dear sweet sister that I visit teach taught me a great lesson today. She said, what are your best hours? Are they right when you get up, or when the kids are napping maybe? During my best hours I always sit down at the computer to read blogs or play computer games. We should be studying our scriptures in our best hours, instead of cramming them into a busy schedule or falling asleep to them because it's just before bed. (Unless of course just before bed is your "best hour.") If we do that we are bound to learn more, and fell the great spirit that studying the scriptures brings into our lives. That's my challenge to all of you! Study the scriptures in your best hour, then do everything else.
