Like Mother Like Daughter

Elle's second cousins





Elle's second cousins came to visit. They are the cutest boys I've ever seen and they're ALL boy! By the time they left, Elle (who is extremely girly) was catching catepillars and putting lizards on her head!






Lovin' on a lizard!

Grandma and Grandpa Great




Abe's grandparents came to visit in March. They are the nicest and most thoughtful people you will ever meet! They went sky diving for their 80th birthdays and loved it! Grandma wants to go again this year! They are so funny! I just adore them and hope to be just like them when I grow up:)

Easter

For Easter, we had a busy and fun day. We woke up early and went to church. When we got home, we ran inside to see what the Easter bunny left us. My entire family and Abe's family came over for dinner. After dinner, Elle and my brother in law's neices had an easter egg hunt. It was so much fun celebrating Easter with everyone at once!! Heidi made Elle and Lily Kate's dresses. She did a phenominal job!! She even made them braceletts and bows to match! Perfect!! We had a fun day and loved being around our entire family.
