some Monday things

the requisite Easter Sunday shot in front of the front door
Do you take this picture at your house, too?

I know that Easter is not until this Sunday, but since we have General Conference* this weekend, we broke out the Easter outfits early and wore them to church yesterday.

I just love these blonde kids of mine. What do you think the chances are that no. 4 will have blonde hair and blue eyes, too? I'd say they are pretty high. I'm getting so anxious to see him. And hold him. And smell him.

I just remembered that last Easter, Stella was in her cast. Oh, it was awful. I'm so glad her little femur healed well. I wouldn't wish a SPICA cast on anyone.

It's definitely spring here. The wisteria vine on our house bloomed practically overnight and temperatures in the mid-80s are headed our way. To prepare for the heat, Mike installed a whole house fan on Saturday. He's so handy. Hopefully it will keep us from needing to use the air conditioning for a few more weeks.

My goal for the day is to finish alterations on a prom dress for a girl in my ward. I've put it off for too long. And I need to bake some sort of treat for our nieghborhood block party tonight. That's right. Our neighborhood has block parties. I love where I live.

Did you have a good weekend? What are your Monday plans?

*from General Conference is a bi-annual world conference of our Church, held in April and October, where members gather for five two-hour sessions to listen to instruction from Church leaders and at which official Church business is conducted. General conference is broadcast via satellite from the Conference Center at Church headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.
