Finally we have our very own place. We just got the key and we're all set to move to our own house. We're sad to leave our friends and our ward but at the same time we're excited to have our very own place... We'll be moving to Clinton and we'll be closer to a lot of our dear friends...

I took a moment to request from "To Write Their Names In The Sand" to have Ammon's name written in the sand. She posted this yesterday. This is a perfect picture!

Yesterday we went to Camy's (one of my friends kid) birthday party. We're glad that the weather was nice and we're able to have fun at their backyard. We had a blast!




The birthday girl with her cake.









One of the games we played was a "Singing Contest" for husbands and wives. Husbands had to sing to get the prize for their own wife and the wives had to sing to get the prize for their husband. There was no judges, we used the magic sing and the score was based on the score they got after they sang. There were 5 men competing for the big prize...







The big winner was Russ... He scored 97 out of 100 so he got the big prize.... Yes it was a coach purse that everybody wanted to have :)




The non winners got candies for their consolation prizes..

For the ladies, the big prize was a leather wallet. The big winner was Dinah. Her score was 99.

We had a great sacrament meeting yesterday and I loved the talks that were given. After church, when I was done with my cooking I sat down with Andrew and told him what we celebrate on Easter Sunday. As I told him that because of Jesus, even though people may die, they will not stay dead. That they can live forever with Jesus, and even their bodies will be raised from the dead just like Jesus' body was. He then said "That's why Jesus is holding Ammon now in heaven because they are alive? I can see Ammon again too? I've had special moments with Andrew but yesterday was different. I'm glad Andrew understands about death and what happened and will happen to his baby brother Ammon. I know that my Jesus Christ Lives and because he is then all of us will be resurrected! What a comfort indeed!

We joined with our friends for an "Easter Feast". We do love to get together and do all the fun stuffs whenever we can!








After eating we let the kids do egg hunting. While they were doing it, Andrew suddenly asked me "Mommy does Easter bunnies lay eggs?







We ( both for kids and adults) also played games. We're glad the weather was nice today so we can do all the fun stuffs at the backyard.






We then painted and decorated eggs. We all had a lot of fun especially the kids...
