Conference & Easter Eggs

These boys love country music! Makes me so happy!!!!

They also LOVE their Dad- they get so happy when he comes home on weekends!! Only two more months of this separation- it's flying by but it'll be so nice to be settled in our own home again.

Shad was having a bad day with out of control marker urges and needing a haircut for his afro hair ;)

General Conference was so great as usual and I also look forward to studying it all in depth- as usual ;) The boys were very into it even if they weren't very quiet..... :) Even their stuffed animals had to watch it. It was also Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd so the boys dressed in blue and got all their toys that are blue. It's funny how I don't feel very apart of the autism world anymore expect for occasional days. Never thought it'd be like that but it's more than wonderful. Ty is starting to realize what autism is as well. It seems to not bother him and even creates some empathy.

Poor President Monson seemed to be in very poor health. I'm not sure how much longer he'll be on this earth. I almost want him to be reunited with his dear wife and be done with all this. But he did speak for 2 minutes and the boys heard him say to read the Book of Mormon every day. The boys recognized we do good M-F but resolved to remind us to read Saturday and Sundays so that we could follow the prophet. They made a sign to help us remember. I was pretty touched by that. 

Things got a little crazy being cooped up for 2 days watching TV. I bought a bunch of candy, thinking I could reward them to watching and retaining information- ha! All it did was make us all just sit and eat candy and draw on faces ;) But we did make this cool conference chart which did help. Ty and Levi took it very seriously. 

Annual dying eggs chaos! Paw Patrol, Star Wars and Pokemon eggs!

Ty- almost 7
Levi- 5.5
Shad- 3
Benson- 1

We are anxiously awaiting nursery time for this kiddo!! He's starting to not nap before church so it makes for a very tricky three hours!!! Only about 10 Sundays to go!!!

Beau was so cute in her little purse we sent her for her bday!
