I have been a complete slacker as far as blogging about my girls. :( So I am making a small attempt to catch up. The girls have recently become absolutlely obsessed with Toy Story and Toy Story 2. In conjunction with getting both combo packs it allowed us to print 2 movie tickets to see Toy Story 3 when it comes out in June. The girls are thrilled and talk about going all of the time. When ever I ask them a question and call them by their names they are quick to correct me that they are either a) Woody b) Buzz Lightyear c) Jessie or d) Bullseye and more often then not I am given the title of the Evil Emperor Zurg. It keeps things interesting around here.
Ruby also finds great joy in telling us her "jokes" which usually consist of telling us a shortened story about one of the Disney Princesses, and even though they are usually lacking in the humor department Jed and I find ourselves unable keep a straight face due to her details and facial expressions. I do love one of Ruby's good jokes at the end of the day.
Easter weekend was a lot of fun for us. We started out by dying Easter eggs on Thursday, and had a lot of fun with that minus a few spills which ended up in some of our socks dyed yellow. Friday, my friends from Sandy threw me a girls night out since I didn't want a baby shower. Some brought gifts anyway and they are all so sweet. I am so thankful for good friends. The girls were thrilled that they got to hang out with Morgan and Owen until Jed could get off work to pick them up. We went a little early to visit and Ruby kept asking when I was going to leave. They had a good time with their friends.
Saturday we had an Easter egg hunt at my parents and had fun visiting with family that lives fairly close and enjoyed lunch together. We were there for most of the day, and after Priesthood session we swung by Jed's parents, it was so fun to see everyone but by the end of the day I was exhausted and ready for bed. Jed spend most of the first part of the day at work, finishing up the last of his tax prep for all of the corporations for his meeting today. It has kept him really busy over the past couple weeks and I know it will be a relief for him to be done with the meeting today. We missed him, but I am so thankful for all of the sacrifices he makes for our family. He is a good man.
Sunday was so nice to be home as a family and get to watch General Conference snuggling with my little loves. I must confess that I fell asleep more than once, but thoroughly enjoyed the talks I was conscious for. We spent the rest of the afternoon reading books, playing Toy story and listening to Ruby's jokes. Jed and I switch each night putting one of the girls to bed. My evening ended with singing "Snuggle Puppy" with Emma. She absolutely loves that song, and I love the smile it brings to her face and hearing her jump in when she knows the words.
I snapped this sweet picture of Jed and the girls just after dinner. Ruby asked Jed to draw a picture of Woody. Jed wanted to do his best work so he borrowed a coloring page of Woody from Ruby and during the drawing process he had the girls rapt attention. I love moments like this.
I have so much to do today, most of it house work and packing. Truthfully I don't feel like doing any of it. So I guess I will just see what I get done and not worry about the rest. I just want to enjoy the day with my little buttons.
