It’s Finally Spring!

Weekly Happenings: This week we officially heralded in spring. I have to say, I was looking forward to it this year. This past winter seemed longer and colder than others we’ve had in the past. I’m ready for sunshine and a little more warmth (not summer warmth, mind you…just a smidge warmer). As far as activities as a family, we didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary. Pretty soon, summer will be upon us and we’ll probably do more things.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been a bit warmer and a bit sunnier. I love it!

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work and also busy with stuff around the house. I sure appreciate all he does for our family!

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been busy with mom stuff, piano teacher stuff, and all the rest. It’s a good type of busy, though. This morning, I got to go to an activity for Relief Society which was spiritually uplifting and a lot of fun to boot.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He had a great time at school this week, especially when his teacher took them out to the field at school and let them fly kites.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been her usually sweet and sassy self. There’s a few words and phrases of hers that I want to write down so that I don’t forget that she was saying them this way at this age: “opapus” (octopus), “keep-a-boo” (peek-a-boo), “bes you” (bless you…when someone makes any sound that remotely resembles a sneeze), and “Oh, dear!” whenever anything that she considers upsetting happens.

This Week in Pictures:

On St. Patrick’s Day, I made corned beef hash and Irish soda bread. The bread (which was like a biscuit) was really good with jam on it!
My shamrocks are getting nice an settled in.
I didn’t expect the blossoms to have a purple tinge, but they do!
It was fun to make that discovery. 🙂
These two play so well together!
Joseph was in the middle of saying, “It’s Bat-baby!”
On this day, she had to wear her tutu all over the house. She also felt the need, since she was so appropriately dressed, to make sure that Joseph danced with her…even though he was busy doing something else. She kept grabbing his hands and waist until he caved. In this picture, she was playing with a sports bottle full of reusable ice cubes. She really liked the rattling it made.
Sometimes fun lunches (in this case, Happy Meals) lead to after-lunch shenanigans.
Rainbow sprinkles on top of rice crispy treats make them so fun!
