Kaitlyn Comments!

I had to get this on here before I forget. At the beginning of last month Kaitlyn got a really bad ear infection. She never misses school and missed almost a whole week. We had taken her to the doctor and were told to just watch it and that becuase of her age it would soon pass, but to give her tylonel. Well about 4-5 days went by and she just seemed worse. I would ask her something and she couldn't even hear me. So it was back to the Doctor although a different one. Dr. Williams told me it was a major double ear infection and there was so much fluid around her ear drums that she physically was having a hard time hearing. We got her on medication and soon she was feeling much better.
Throughount this process I just had to laugh and laugh becuase she kept telling me "Mom I just need one of those turny up things in your ear so I can hear you." I said " What are you talking abou?" she said "You know like the old man in UP has!" She was talking about a hearing aid. We all had a good laugh over that one.
Boy am I thankful for little kids who can always make you laugh even at a bad situation.

New Dessert

Mom and I decided to try a new dessert she found in her Taste of Homes magazine, called Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle. Doesn't the name just make your mouth water. We are going to share it with all of the guys after the priesthood session tonight.
The layers go as follows. Brownies made with peanut butter chips; along with reeces peanut buttter cups. Topped with a layer of the mix which includes cool whip, vanilla pudding, peanut butter and vanilla.
Keep layering over and over and top with cool whip and recees.

This is what it looks like all finished. It made a ton. This is a punch bowl because it was so huge. Hopefully it tastes great.

Easter Bunny Here We Come!!!

Doesn't he make the cutest Easter Bunny.
So after a long week we finally got around to dying Easter eggs. And just in time considering that tomorow is Easter. Generally we celebrate the Easter bunny on Sat. so we reserve Sun. so our kids will know that Easter is not about the Easter bunny but about the Savior. This year we decided to spend conference with my parents and let them enjoy watching the kids find all the eggs. We also saved dying the eggs with them.
We all had a great time. Who wouldn't with such cute helpers!

Early Gardning

The kids and I are trying our hand at early gardening. This will be our first year to pre-plant our seeds. hoping that we don't have to go and buy the plants later.

We hope that with a little water lots of love and sunshine that here soon we will have some sprouts.
