{Easter Wrap-Up}

I am finishing up Easter in hopes that we have baby news to report soon! 

Update:  At my appointment yesterday I was 5cm dilated. Still not in labor.  My doctor doesn't want to induce before I am exactly 39 weeks ...which is Saturday...which means we couldn't schedule the induction until Monday.  Boo!  I have never gone into labor on my own...but waiting until Monday will be the latest I have gone in all 4 you never know, right?! I am just nervous about my water breaking while I am at home by myself...b/c if so...that baby is coming in about 30 minutes (my labor goes really fast once my water breaks) and I'll be calling 911, I think.  But apparently it isn't enough of a reason to induce one day shy of 39 weeks (I was really hoping for Friday). Oh well, I'll make it to Monday and my mom is coming to distract me on Thursday and staying for as long as we can keep her! I can't complain knowing I won't even reach my due date...but when you have this much progress (5cm!!) is hard not to just head to the hospital!

Easter Sunday was great!  We didn't have church until 1:30, so it was nice to enjoy the morning with the kids without rushing to get ready.

They found their trails to their Easter baskets: yarn from their bedrooms wound around the house and leading to their baskets (no pictures of that his year...but the kids thought it was fun.  However, the Easter bunny needs to make it a bit more challenging for the older two next year).  They hunted for eggs in usual fashion.  And loved their Easter basket goodies (very low-key...bubbles, toothbrushes, small toy, and an Easter outfit). 

Don't mind the socks in Addy's hair....easiest way to make it all curly for Sunday church. 

Addy and Ry loved wearing their new shoes around with their PJs.
More candy??
We read the final scripture in our 'Easter' cookie recipe that we started the night before.  This is a great tradition found here.  Trying our best to really focus on the Savior in the middle of eggs, candy, and Easter baskets. 
A yummy breakfast.
And a few Easter dressy pictures before church. 

We finished the day with yummy ham, homemade rolls, potatoes, fruit salad, veggies, and was delish!  And it felt good to really prepare a nice meal (I haven't been an active dinner-preparer lately...let's just say the kids are sick of french toast and/or cereal for dinner!) 

Loved Easter!  It has been a good distraction from being 9 months pregnant! 
Hopefully baby news is up next!!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
