We had another wonderful Easter celebration this year!
While Scott was working his magic in the kitchen, I was in charge of setting the table...
Some of the daffodils from the front yard made a lovely bouquet for the table.
Dan and Melinda came over and shared in our feast. It was absolutely delicious, as always! And the best part was spending time together and all the fun conversation we always have. We love them so much and are grateful to have them as our "extended family."
Scott and I had a lot of fun being creative together this year - with decorating our springtime flower cupcakes for dessert...
...and dying eggs - one of my favorite traditions from my childhood.
My family had a little custom where each of us would decorate an egg for each member of the family. We would write the person's name on it with the wax crayon and decorate it in a way we thought they would like. I made one for Scott (can you tell which one?) but I forgot to tell him about the tradition, so he didn't do one with my name on it. :(
But I picked out my favorite egg that he decorated and we decided that one could be "mine." :)
Isn't it gorgeous? My cute husband is so talented!
I think it's so perfect that Easter is in the springtime. What better time of year to remember the gift of the resurrection and the atonement, when we are surrounded by the beauty of spring flowers, newborn animals and budding leaves. Everything feels fresh and new. What beautiful blessings the Savior gives us.
I am Mom to Teddy and Wife to Scott. Scott and I have known each other since fourth grade and have been married since March of 2006. We have a pretty cool love story! I grew up in Maryland, the most beautiful state in the USA! I spent 4 years studying and playing (mostly playing) at BYU and then got a degree in Cosmetology at Von Curtis Academy. I served a mission in Chicago speaking Spanish. I am a hairstylist and I enjoy the time I get to spend with people helping them feel beautiful. I also work for a health promotion company doing health screenings. We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's a pretty awesome life!
Scott is the greatest man in the world. OK, can you tell Jennifer is writing this? Really, though, he is. He grew up in Maryland and is a HUGE Maryland Basketball fan. Fear the turtle! He attended Ricks College and Utah State and graduated with a degree in Political Science. He served a mission in Florida speaking Spanish. He co-owns Midwestern Property Services and also works as a heath screener for a health promotion company. He loves to study the gospel and always has his nose in a Hugh Nibley book. He does NOT like to have his picture taken. He is an AMAZING cook. And he's the best husband a girl could ask for!
Teddy is our baby - he's a little pomeranian with LOTS of personality! He loves meeting new people. He barks his head off at them as he watches them out the window, but as soon as they enter the door they are his best friends. He loves to snuggle and pretty much has to always be on someone's lap, especially when they are getting their hair done. He can sit, lay down or speak on command, but only if he can see that you are holding a treat for him. He's the cutest doggie in the whole wide world!
