Every time I go home to visit, my mom insists on doing a "craft," which is okay with me because I love doing these kinds of things. For this craft, I suggested we spell "Easter" on wood blocks and add the 3D Easter decals to really make it interesting. It was super easy and so fun for those of you who like to do this kind of stuff. We used the Cricut to cut out the vinyl lettering and Easter shapes. We modge podged the heck out of everything just to make sure everything stayed in place. I'm considering doing something like this for spring.

I didn't think Taj would be in to the Easter basket thing just yet, but he attacked it as soon as I put it in front of him. Next year will be even better I'm sure:) Never mind the pink binkie, it was the only color they had left! I just tell people it's his sister's:)

I made these blankets while I was in Monticello too. I had a lot of time on my hands obviously, so I thought I'd make blankets for Brannon and Taj. I actually had to use a sewing machine, which is a huge accomplishment for me, considering I barely passed sewing in Home Ec.
This is the main reason I made the blankets. The blanket he is seen laying on here is actually my sister's. He freaked out if anyone else touched it, including my sister.

When I was in Monticello, I got to be there for my youngest sister's Jr. Prom. I love her dress! Not only is the color fantastic, but I love the mermaid shape. She looked so pretty:)Going to watch promenade was the first date Brannon and I have been on in a long time, but it was fun to relive the glory days for the evening.

This is my dad's hat. Taj absolutely adores his grandpa. I don't think anyone's ever been so excited to see my dad come home from work than Taj.

So I've been bragging to everyone who lives down south that it's been spring in Kaysville for like two months now. This is what we woke up to this morning....are you kidding me?! The power went out in the middle of the night too, not even the street lights were on. It was freezing! I'm hoping it melts off quick, so we can go outside again! I guess this is April coming in like a lion.
I just had to put up a picture of the front of Brannon's man pad. I came home to find a buffalo skull wired to our shed. Brannon said it adds to the southwestern decor he's chosen for his shed (which includes a native american inspired lamp with arrows and leather woven on the lamp shade and a clock with leather tassles and feathers hanging off the corners and a tiny buffalo skull in the middle that anchors the hands of the clock) I can't help but laugh when I look outside and see that skull and think of Brannon out thre decorating his "man pad."

I didn't know that Brannon went to exterior / interior design school! Ha... Got to love that man, he makes my husband laugh so hard whenever they talk. Miss you guys, and I really can't say that I feel to bad that you are stuck inside for a few day... I know I am mean, mean, mean... but its about time Salt Lake sees some snow! Miss you guys.
