Efforts Thwarted

Our family Easter picture. It pretty much sums up our day today. It pretty much sums up our lives right now.
In other news...my sister Ashley and her Brian brought all 6 pounds 15 ounces of their little Eli home today. Tomorrow, Craig leaves us behind to scout out an opportunity in North Carolina. My brother, Ben, is making big plans with his sweet Olivia and...well, I'm still pregnant.

You don't really look pregnant in this photo. At least you tried (which is more than I can say for the Dill family!) Pearl has the same dress as Lucy. She told me today that she missed her cousins and then asked if I remembered when Uncle Craig took her to the ice cream store. Would that be the BYU creamery? Tell Craig she has fond memories!

Hilarious. Absolutely perfect, Jordan. It was our day, too. Only I didn't document it because we were too busy consuming lethal amounts of chocolate and a very tasty Easter ham. This holiday eating has gotten out of control and tonight, candy was tossed out (not all, just a bit, but still) and tomorrow, we begin again.

Your tomorrow is huge! Craig is off to NC (I still that place would really suit you) - best wishes! He'll get the job. You belong there amid the trees and the beaches and the hills.

Happy Easter!

I love you, I love that you documented and posted. Good luck to Craig in NC. You guys are interviewing in the greatest places, save a little guest spot for the Adams, k?

Love it! That's how most of our photos turn out! Jordan, you really look amazing and like Katy said, "You don't really look pregnant in this photo!" We just love the Mangums!

i'm not sure now how i linked to your blog, but i've been lurking on it for quite some time now. i just love the way you word things, which keeps me coming back for more. plus, i'm pregnant too, so i feel i can relate!

apparently that yellow polka-dotted dress from target was a popular easter dress this year! my 5 year old wore it and i've seen it on two other blogs now as well! i loved it!

north carolina? that's where we live-- in charlotte-- so i'll have to give you my plug. it's a great place to live!

This picture made me laugh because we (and I am sure all little families) have one...ok many...just like it. Everyone still looks adorable though and I must point out, no one seems to be screaming, which is a huge triumph at our house at picture time. Love your posts...I am so glad that I found you.

My efforts were thwarted as well. At least you and Craig are in the photo! I didn't even get that. I'm going to have the kids wear their Easter clothes another day and try again (although I will say I love the outtakes too).
