Easter Weekend

 Look what the easter bunny brought!!  I didn't get a picture of my kids in thier easter clothes though! I can't believe I forgot that.
 My kids LOVE bubbles. What kid doesn't though, right?

 Check out Bridgers huge double chin! He is waiting while his sister and brother go on an easter egg hunt. I just love this hat my friend Alisha made for him. So cute!
 After the easter egg hunt at Aunt Emilys neihborhood the kids stop to check out thier candy.
 Eli and Andi. Hey Cousin, what did you get??
 At G ma Sharon's Apartment complex for another Easter celebration. With dinner, Volleyball, and of course an egg hunt. The kids had a blast there. Here is Kemper with Luke, and Jake.
 Andi and Hudson. 3 1/2 and they still look like twins!
 Peyton, and Halle, at the playground at the apartment.
 Love this picture of Emily and little Macey.
 Almost all the cousins on the Hessing side. Bridger is not in this, and neither is Zach and Dixie's adorable little girl because they live in Elko.
 Andi is becoming such a little ham for the camera. It makes taking her picture so much more fun!
 Easter celebration at my mom and dads house.
 Kemper's eggs were the soccer balls.
 Each grand child had 10 eggs to find, in thier own color. Eliminates all conflict :)
 Snugglin up to Dad.
 All the cousins on the Fife side now.
 Emma, and Bridger

It was a great Easter Weekend. With way too much candy, and lots of cousins. I feel really blessed my kids have been lucky enough to have all the cousins from both sides of the family all living within 4 miles of each other. How amazing is that??  I am sure they will grow up thinking that is normal, but I know we are really fortunate to have so much amazing family. And Grandparents close by. I never had that, ( in the same town I should say) and I love that my kids are so close to thiers.  And my kids are getting old enough to understand the real meaning of Easter, and that is the best part of this whole weekend.

                                                Kemper and Andi love the sandbox.
                     Sorry this is blurry, my camera is pretty lame. Bathtime with Big brother!
                                    Kemp is such a big help, he is the best big brother ever!
 He is such a smiley happy baby. But for some reason when I get the camera out he gets all serious.
 Snuggle time with dad. He was laughing at cooing at Chad while he talked to him.
Always looking for his thumb
Andi's newest thing is holding Bridge.

So much to say, and I have waited way to long to blog! I have been busy, and we didn't have our main computer hooked up for a long time. 3 kids, a new baby, a new house, starting work again. It has been a great new adventure. Chad and I bought a house, which is really exciting, since we have been renting for the past 3 years or so.  The kids are loving the new house. Complete with a big backyard, swingset, sandbox, garden, toyroom, and a park across the street! Chad has been really busy with his full time job as a sheriffs Deputy, and he has had side construction jobs on all his days off lately. I don't see him much :) but I know things will eventually calm down.

I feel like someone is going to pinch me and I will wake up. Right now life is so amazing, and a big reason is my wonderful bundle of joy. Bridger. He is such a great baby. He has been sleeping through the night for a couple months now, (He is only 3 1/2 months) He is happy, and he saves his best smiles for mom.  He has been a blessing to our family. I can't wait for him to wake up every morning so I can see his happy smile. 

Kemp is doing great in first grade, and has lost 4 teeth now which he is so proud of. He is growing up way to fast though. And becoming a little boy. He is not as hyper as he once was, and he has the best conversations with us, and always has so much to say. He is counting down untill the 4th Pirates of the carribean movie comes out. He has a small Johnny Depp obsession :) its pretty cute!

My little Andi is loving pre-school, and our swingset.  She is still my tender snuggler that crawls in bed with Chad and I every morning. She is loving veggie tales right now, and Tangled. Which she watches every day.  She is adjusting to not being the baby of the family anymore. She knows she still has her dad wrapped aroung her finger though!

Chad and I are liking our new ward. I am sad I had to be released from the Stake YW pres. But we are excited to see what will come in this new chapter of our lives. We are only ten minutes from our old neihborhood and friends, so that is really good.
