Happy Easter

Happy Easter 

With Lot of Love From
Jefferson, Jaclyn, and Emery

We have been having a great Easter that has actually turned into an entire Easter weekend filled with time spent with eachother and our family.

Friday, Jefferson had the day off so we got up and headed over the the Bishop's Storehouse where Jeff's parents are serving a mission. We got the grand tour and got to meet the people that we hear stories about. I didn't have our camera battery charged so we didn't get any pictures of them doing their thing but that just means we get to go down there again before they're done. Then they were nice enough to take us to Manuel's for lunch. We got home and, shortly after, headed over to Cauley and Jami's to watch some March Madness basketball games. They made dinner which was delicious and we all just hung out talking and watching the games.

Saturday, we got up and Jeff headed to the store to get the necessary supplies for the above photo shoot. I may have had a bit of a meltdown about it way too late the night before so he nicely got up, did the laundry and the dishes, and then headed out where he picked out a ton of cute eggs and easter grass. Emery and I stayed at home and stuck the cinammon rolls in just in time so that they were ready when dad got home. Since we have church at 9 we decided to eat out cinammon rolls on Saturday morning so we wouldn't feel so rushed. Then when Emery took her morning nap we got everything ready for the shoot. She woke up and was ready to go. We didn't get any smiles (of course she started grinning up a storm as soon as we were done) but she wasn't screaming so we consider that a success. Afterwards we headed over to the Arizona Grand where my family was staying for the weekend. We sat in the shade out by the pool, had lunch, and just chatted and relaxed. See those bunny ears in the pictures above? Those were in her easter basket from Grandma and Grandpa Moore. Jeff didn't know that I had put them on her so when I said "Hey Daddy!" and he turned around he thought it was the funniest thing in the world. Also, when Jeff asked me what sleeper I wanted to put her in, I said "The one that looks like it has easter eggs on it." He just kind of looked at me until I explained further so there's our little Easter Bunny.

Today (Sunday), we got up and got ready for church. The Easter Bunny came in the night and left us some treats and presents in our baskets. Emery was great at church but I took her home after sacrament meeting while Jeff stayed at church. We're easing Emery and ourselves into staying the entire time plus I'm still a little paranoid about it being the end of flu season. Then we're headed over to Jeff's parent's house where we'll be eating Easter dinner with them and Cauley and Jami's family.
