"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

~President Gordon B. Hinckley

HAPPY EASTER!! OH how I LOVE Easter! It is by FAR my most favorite holiday!! I love that you can find white and pink clothes just about ANYWHERE and that they have matching outfits for kids of all ages!! I love that the weather is PERFECT...even if only for a few days! I love that it reminds me of when Seth proposed to me(April 20th, 2003...back when Easter was in APRIL)! But mostly, I love to think of Our Savior and all that He has done for me and my family through His atonement! What blessings I have! HAPPY EASTER!!
Some photos of this weeks BUSY events!!
Lilee and Amy L. in matching PJ's...SAME SIZE!!!!

Giving loves goodnight!!

St. Patty's day...mommy and Lilee

St. Patty's day with the whole fam...funny how we managed to each have a different color of GREEN on...krazy!

That night, Seth and I went to the Matchbox20 concert at Cricket Pavillion! This was my gift for V-day and it was AMAZING! Matchbox20 is my ALL TIME FAVORITE group and we had a blast singing along and watching all the inebriated folk dance around...nothing like a concert on St. Patty's day!!

Here is Rob Thomas...in the GREEN shirt!! HORRIBLE picture but AMAZING concert!

This was the first time we were able to take Lilee with us to Logan's grave. It was a nice day to spend time together as a family! After that, we went to the Easter Pagent at the Temple. It was BEAUTIFUL, as usual! It was so much more meaningful for me this year because Keat actually did REALLY well and we talked about Jesus and the angels quite a bit!

On Friday we spent some time at the zoo. Seth got off early so we all met a friend, Riss, and saw some animals. Truly, we spent most of our time at the petting zoo...and then because of no nap, we spent a lot of time dealing with a screaming toddler...I think Riss will NEVER have kids after spending time with ours!!:)

This was PRICELESS...see if you can figure out this next picture. The one after it is a bit more explanatory!

daddy daughter love!

Easter at the Francois' on Saturday! Thanks mom for the shopping trip...it was SO fun to actually have someone to go with who had an opinion! It's always more fun to spend money WITH someone!!:)

Easter Morning

I am SO bummed that I didn't take any pictures of us for church! I spent SO much time getting outfits that matched! We'll have to wear them again soon and then I'll get pictures! Here's what we wore though, Lilee had a CUTE pink dress with white cardigan(Thank you Lorelei and Bridget) and I had a white skirt and shirt with a pink cardigan. Keat wore blue pants with a blue/white/pink striped shirt. Daddy wore blue pants, white shirt and a pink and blue tie!! We all looked great if I do say so myself!!

Easter at the Becker's on Sunday!

Look at Miss Lilee's new trick...she sits up now! Keat wasn't sitting up until like 8 months or something! Krazy girl...she also gets up on her toes and hands and lunges forward! What an overachiever!!:)

Dying hands...errrr...eggs!

I love the St. Patty's day get-ups:) You guys have been up to a lot. Disneyland - how fun! I've been slacking in the blogging department, but today I'm finally catching up on everyone. Do me a favor - give Beck & JD special hugs for me on his blessing day. I can't wait to meet him and wish I could sooner. I love the pic of Lilee and Keat at Logan's grave - what a beautiful marker that is. Thanks for sharing.
