{Avery's 1st Birthday}

It was no surprise that Ashley went above and beyond for Avery's first birthday. Every detail was so adorable and I am so inspired to be more creative when it comes to parties and entertaining, instead of relying on Target and Party City.
Here are just some of the details...
and this is how you eat a cupcake...

"HAPPY EASTER TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. this is my favorite holiday. it means so much. time for rebirth, forgiveness, coming back to life in so many ways, and of course the kind of love you would die for. no matter what your faith, the take away is for all of us"---this is what a friend on Facebook wrote and I loved it.
What a beautiful time of year. The blossoms on the trees, all the living things creating new lives, children rediscovering how glorious it is to be outside, long sunny days, ahhhh....I just love this time of year. We all need it, we all deserve to feel this good inside and I hope we can all be grateful for what we have, continue to grow. and to love all that is around us.
Today was a good day. The Easter bunny found his way to our house and brought a smile to my kiddos' faces. Izzy is easy--just give her a stuffed animal and she's good, Jaxon needs a ball of some sort, and Olivia just needs Justin Beiber. Simple as that.
Sabe and I both ate lots of candy of breakfast and we all enjoyed conference in our jammies.
Then it was time to party. Jenni and Regan were soooo nice to have all of us to their house for a BBQ, which was so great because the weather was AMAZING. Unfortunately all of our lovies in UT had to search for their eggs in the snow---YUCK!
So we ate, jumped, searched, laughed, ate some more, flew some kites and then none of us wanted to go home.

So this is what my kiddy kats look like when they wake up...

a funny little game---taste them if you dare :)

okay, so I baked today...
