Date Night

Last night was Chris and I’s  first date of the New Year. We also had  decided that on one of our bi-monthly dates, we should invite another couple to go with us. Tonight the Martinson’s were able to join us and we had a great time. We went to this little Mexican restaurant in Sumner called El Charro. I love their food especially since they currently don’t use any peanut butter in any of their sauces, I am allergic and you would be surprised how many places do! We then came back home to check on the kids before heading back out to their house to watch Eagle Eye and have some chocolate creme brule that Jaque had made, so yummy!  It was a great movie and we hope there may be a sequel, they left the possibility open at the end of the movie. Overall though, I think the best part of the night was just getting out of the house, and getting to know friends better. I do have to say that my favorite part of the night was when their daughter decided that she was a “Kari fan,” and then cuddled up with me for a bit. I have to say that I am a Morgan fan as well. 🙂 Oh, and I can’t forget about when Tyler called us to see when we were getting home. I thought we were the parents, do we have a curfew we don’t know about? LOL!

Easter

My Mom and I were talking the other day about how there are certain orders to things in life. For instance, when Easter is. It is suppossed to be the arrival of spring, General Conference, and then Easter. Sometimes Easter and Conference end up on the same Sunday, and that is great. However, Easter coming before Conference? The kids even felt that Easter came way too early this year. That still didn’t stop them from making sure their baskets were ready to be filled by the Easter Bunny though. When the kids all woke up, they were happy to see what had been brought for them. However we weren’t happy to find out that Travis had been awake off and on since 3 a.m. feeling extremely sick and Tyler was feeling worse as well. As a result we had to call and “uninvite” our friends, the Welsh’s from coming over for dinner. It still worked out as we sent them dinner and they sent us dessert. We were just unable to enjoy the meal together.

Travis, Allison, Daylyn, & Tyler

Chris and the girls went to church, and I found myself wishing I could be in Utah with my brother John and his family as their new son Chase was being blessed today in church. I heard it was a great day for them. I can’t wait to get to hold little Chase myself. He was in Grandma’s arms when I talked with her yesterday.

Here is the family after Chase’s blessing:
Dad, Mom, Sharley, John, Kelsie, and Chase.

As they day came to a close, we gathered the family together to enjoy a gift brought to me by my visiting teacher. It was a basket containing 12 numbered Easter Eggs. As we opened each egg, there was a small item inside along with a scripture, telling the story of Christ’s Resurrection. As we each took turns opening and reading an egg, I was so thankful that my children really do understand the reason we celebrate Easter and that it finally felt like Easter.
