I absolutely love Easter. I know I say this every year, but it's true every year, so I have to say it.

What's not to love about it? We celebrate the resurrection of our Savior and eat candy while wearing new clothes. I sound shallow, but I'm serious. It's just a beautiful day all around. Church, baskets, dress clothes, egg hunts, dinner with friends and family...Perfect day.

Lucky Number 13!

Syd turned 13 on April 20th. She had a great day followed by an awesome weekend. She was spoiled by both friends and family. We hosted a sleepover in her honor and had about 14 girls in attendance.

Yes, I survived, and the house is still standing.


Sydney is taking foods class at school. It's actually called something else now. It's a much fancier name, but I'm not sure what it is.

In class a few weeks ago they learned to make cream of wheat. The teacher told them if they made it at home and took a photo they would earn extra credit.

Well, here's the photo. Too bad Sydney didn't care to eat the cream of wheat!

Did I mention her teacher is also her grandmother?!

Note to teacher: Can part of the extra credit include cleaning the cooking mess up at home?
