April, so far...

April is full of fun for our family.  We have two birthdays in April to go along with Easter (most years) and the wonderful spring weather.  We celebrated one birthday yesterday, and are looking forward to the next birthday in another week.  We had a great Easter/Conference weekend as well, so we thought we'd share.
Some members of our ward got together between conference sessions for an Easter egg hunt.  We were lucky that the weather cooperated.  There wasn't any rain, and it was just a lot of fun.  

Aprons on and ready for coloring eggs (Ellie is making bunny ears)

My mom usually makes hot crossed buns for Easter.  I decided to try the same recipe for our family this year since we couldn't steal any from Grandma's house.  They didn't turn out perfectly (we had one batch that were more like hot crossed pancakes) but I was glad that I tried.  They still tasted great with some frosting on top!

New chalk for Easter.  It has been well used especially since it has been sunny half the day and rainy the other half.  The kids have time to make fun pictures, then they are erased by the rain for more fun the next day.  
Yesterday was Christian's birthday.  It was a pretty normal day besides opening presents and eating cake in the evening. He got to play with his new light saber all day since Ellie woke up first thing in the morning  and couldn't keep her present to him a secret any longer and proceeded to to get him all excited about the new light saber.  We let him open it.  He then picked out a blue outfit to wear all day to match his light saber.  
Christian is loving all the legos he got!  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Christensen!
Thanks for the book Janel! We made sure to read it before bedtime last night

Christian is a big "site" fan. He loved to help decorate his birthday cake.  
 Christian is such a funny boy to have around.  He is very opinionated and doesn't back down easily.  He has learned well the meaning of time out, but doesn't really care. He loves to say "told ya so" when he knows the outcome of a situation.  He loves playing with his "site" trucks, making almost any object into a gun or spaceship, pretending to be a restaurant cooker, being a "bad guy", leading music,  and of course, he loves to bug his sister.  We love him and can't wait to see how he grows in the next year.
