The girls woke up to the traditional heart attacks on their doors and valentine's buckets. We had a special breakfast, a valentine party at preschool, and heart shaped pizza for dinner.
daddy was working late in his busy season so we were able to sneak a heart attack on his mirror
we decorated cupcakes for part of our preschool party
Addie partied a little too hard!
the pizza man even brought us a rose!
ST PATRICK'S DAY
We didn't go all out for St. Patrick's Day this year, even though it's one of my favorites. It was over spring break, so we did a little bit of a celebration at preschool the week before. We did make some themed treats on the actual day, but I only got pictures of one of them. I had a festive dinner planned, but we decided to go out to eat and get ice cream instead ;) It was just as fun!
We LOVE Easter!! I'm so glad it was later this year so we could spend more time celebrating it! We decorated eggs, had two Easter egg hunts (one was a friend's birthday party and the other was just the cousins on Easter Sunday), made lots of Easter treats, and spent a lot of time learning about Christ and His atonement and resurrection. Emily seems to get it a little more each year and enjoyed teaching Addie all about it!

so proud of their glitter eggs!
Easter sugar cookies!

^this was a really fun tradition we started this year. It's called The Easter Story Egg. It's a nesting egg that you start on Palm Sunday and every day you open another egg and read a poem that goes along with it. We loved it! The girls really looked forward to opening the egg each day.
*I would also recommend the Easter creche. I didn't get a picture this year, but it's basically like a nativity for Easter. We love having some Easter decor that isn't all bunny-themed and reminds the girls why we celebrate Easter!
I had a fabulous Mother's Day! Grant and the girls spoiled me with breakfast in bed and I didn't have to lift a finger all day! I'm one lucky momma! These girls can definitely make life crazy sometimes, but man am I glad that I get to be their mom. There's nothing better!
