I used to get sick alot as a kid. And I mean alot. I missed every single holiday party of kindergarten EXCEPT for Valentine's day, and they ended up having to call my mom half way through it because I was terribly ill. It was strep throat. Ug.

My children have entered a new stage. This one I'm doing cartwheels about. Chores. They've seriously been asking me when they get to do their chores. Oh, heaven for me. Don't even tell me that this stage doesn't last. I don't want to know. Right now I have three, well two at least, little munchkins who want to wipe down the mirrors that they smudged up, vaccum the crumbs they spilled off the floor, and help me fold and put away their clothes. Kids and no clean up. Can life get better? I submit that it cannot.

General conference was awesome this weekend. It was strange to be watching it from far away, I've gotten used to the idea that it's happening only 40 minutes away. Anyways. This week has been really fantastic. Every week has been so different and interesting since we've been here. But I've enjoyed them all, so much. I really feel so at home here. I don't know exactly why either. Maybe it's because it's so sunny and warm here. I seriously cannot be in a bad mood with so much delicious sunlight showering down on me all the time. I run in the mornings and it's so warm and there are little bunnies hopping around and birds chirping. It's like magic. I'm sure I will miss the rain a bit at some point, but I just left the frigid Utah winter... clear blue skies and 80 degree weather suits me just fine right now.
We are all so happy here. Craig is loving his job, and to add sugar on top, we heard this week that the company he just left laid off a lot of people, and I guess there is more to come. We feel so grateful that the Lord blessed us so abundantly with a better job, in an area that we already love.
Poor Ethan has a double goose egg on his head right now. Have you ever thought about exactly HOW hard tile is. Seriously! That poor baby's forehead has had a couple too many run-ins with the tile that runs throughout the house we are living in. Just when I thought his latest one was about to disappear completely, he tripped in the entry this afternoon and has a new blackish-blue growth coming off the side of his head. Note to self: tile floor + baby's head= disaster.
Last night while Craig went to the priesthood session, the kids and I made a little Easter decoration. It took a bit of creativity given my lack of resources and the fact that most of my goods are still in storage, but I have my craft box and we were able to come up with a pretty little Easter egg concoction consisting of paper plates, material, ribbon, buttons, and some glue. I hung it up on the back door, it made it feel a little more like Easter.
I've discovered something about my husband since we moved here. He is a fantastic barbecuer (is that a word?) Seriously, that man can grill meat over an open flame like nothing else. We've been BBQing just about everyday, and it's always fantastic. How can we have been married for almost 6 years and I didn't know this about him?
Enjoy your week, everyone.
