This Weekend:

* Joe had a 'medical procedure' done on Friday.


Since I couldn't be inside of the room with him when it took place, he was kind enough to take this 'selfie' for me.  He really does have the best sense of humor.
{And no worries - - ALL is WELL!}

* We picked up the kiddos from my parents house afterwards and headed home for the rest of the day.

* Our cute friends the Anderson's insisted on bringing us dinner.


Barro's Pizza + Gourmet Cupcakes = the way to my heart.
So grateful for such kind friends!!

* Afterwards, I headed over to the most darling little engagement party
at our church.


I absolutely Love LoVe LOVED this color scheme with the stripes.


* Joe and I stayed up late Friday night watching Dateline and 20/20.
{Did anyone else see the 20/20?  The bit on how people spend THOUSANDS of dollars on psychics? Good gravy!}

* Saturday morning was our Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the park right by our house.


The sugar rush of the weekend, 
officially began NOW.

* We headed home and rounded up my brother and nephew to dye Easter eggs with us.
I thought I was SUPER clever this year, by purchasing the plastic white eggs that you can color.
{Because for reals - who really needs 24 hard boiled eggs?!}


And while it WAS nice to not boil eggs - 
these plastic ones were a BUST.
They did not take to the dye very well at ALL!
{Plus - we had no deviled eggs to eat afterwards so....next year it's back to the traditional route.}


* We baked up my mom's recipe for Carrot Cake {the best of the best} and delivered them to a few of our peeps.

* I managed to sneek in a 2 hour nap on Saturday afternoon.
{Easter prep is VERY exhuasting, no?!}

* We met my sister and nephew HERE for dinner Saturday night.


{Do they not have the BEST 'Cactus Blossom' EVER?!}

* Sunday we attended Churchey-church.
THIS song was sang as a duet and I swear I teared up through the entire thing.
SO powerful!




* Easter evening was spent over at Joe's parents house with his entire family.


Fun was had by all and highlights included:

* Grant finding the GOLDEN egg aka the one filled with a $20 bill.
{SCORE!}

* Ham dinner with potatoes and all the fix-ins.

*The devotional Joe's mom prepared for all us, based around the Savior.

* Strawberry shortcake for dessert.

One of my very favorite talks ever, 
given on the Resurrection and Easter is from 
Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin called "Sunday Will Come".
