Easter and Ashton's Blessing

The day started with Kaleb hunting for easter eggs. Not much of a challenge in our small apartment but he had a lot of fun. He calls it the Bunny Easter.
Ashton was also blessed on Easter. Between Ashton's blessing, all of our family and friends that were there and all of the musical numbers I really enjoyed Sacrament meeting. And it was a beautiful sunny day on top of that. (as you can see by all of us squinting)
Then off to Sunday dinner. I made orange rolls for dessert and we had tons of yummy food. There were about 200 plastic candy-filled eggs (no joke) for everyone to find. Kaleb found most of them because there aren't any other little kids. He didn't mind, more candy for him.
This was the basket that held all 200 of the eggs. I think Ashton looks better in it than the eggs did though.
He's always so content after eating. And I love his old man wrinkles.

This picture makes me laugh. Kaleb wanted me to take of picture of him in his McQueen vest. Lately instead of smiling for pictures he rolls is eyes and makes a weird face thinking he's being funny. So the only way to get him to smile is to make him laugh by doing silly stuff back. He was getting so mad at me for making him laugh because he couldn't do his "silly face" so seeing this picture I think of how happy he looks and yet how mad he actually was.
This is Ashton with his great-grandma at Sunday dinner. I love his "ooo" face.
Ashton still isn't sure what to think of the camera. This picture only shows 2 chins but I swear he's got a couple more hiding under there.

I was switching laundry and when I came back into the living room Kaleb was reading to Ashton.

Photography 101

So the picture of the airplanes is what my husband has been playing with all week. Chris was nice enough to give all of these airplanes and some motorcycles to Kaleb and I think Matt's having just as much fun as Kaleb. He lined them all up and took pictures and he's already been to Wal-mart to see if they have any new ones available. Thanks Chris!

Matt has been taking a digital photography class to finish off his fine arts credits and here are some of his recent assignments. He's definitely improving and who knows, maybe I'll turn the camera over to him more often so that I can be in some of the pictures.

Ashton is growing fast. Although he's eating more he doesn't seem to want to sleep more just yet. He only is fussy when he's hungry and he loves taking a bath. Kaleb loves talking to Ashton although I think there are times when Kaleb wouldn't mind if we gave him away for awhile. But he's been a lot better than I had expected on the jealousy issue.
