April showers, bring more snow...

Spring please come. Please. Seriously.


Anyway, for fun this April Fool's Day, I thought the kids might enjoy a little silly dinner. We had meatloaf sundays with mashed potatoes and rolls, and brownie roast with ice cream and caramel gravy with candy corn. (I wanted green Jelly Bellies for lima beans, but I didn't have time to go to our local candy shop.) I had fun making it and I think we'll do this again every year, just with different menu ideas.

Jossy and her "dessert":


Lauren was actually crying in this picture:

My sweet little man. He only ate the roll.
Strangely, the kids didn't love it like I had hoped. Nobody felt very good that night and they all have gotten progressively sicker since then. Maybe next year I'll make sushi out of coconut and green fruit roll ups... and I could totally cut shapes out of sandwiches. If I ever see a fish shaped cookie cutter, I'm grabbing it!

We also gave Jossy's hair a trim. I didn't realize how stringy and uneven it was starting to look. Thankfully, I know someone who is good with hair...

Before:

After!! I think it's much improved...





I really think she looks so grown up! And a special thanks to her stylist- Ashley! I had to pay her extra to pose silly afterwards... and please don't be mad I posted this. It really is too cute.




Everyone enjoy Conference this weekend! And read the article in the April Ensign by Guy Hollingsworth. He is the last boss I had before I started working for free. Also, Neil L. Anderson, who is the newest addition to the Quorum of the Twelve, was the sealer at our wedding. I bet he remembers us...

I thought Jossy's hair was really cute! Maybe I could take what got cut off and use it for extensions for Kacie--poor girl! I love your dinner idea--you are way fun!

I don't know how he could forget the puking bride...
Jossy's hair is so cute!! She's just a doll, all the way around. All of your kiddos are! It was so good to see you the other day! I'm still pregnant so that answers how I'm doing. Will it ever end? Love ya Al!
