We are so thankful for this Easter season, and for the bounteous blessings from our Savior, Jesus Christ. The Ressurrection is so powerful and brings such hope and anticipation of being reunited with loved ones after death. We are so glad Jesse is here with us. It is so fun to be with him again.

Jed loves to read his scripture stories each night before he goes to bed. When I let them each pick out a book, Jed says, Mom, we have to read our scripture stories every night! He has marvelous primary leaders and a wonderful teacher and I know he is learning things there that I forget to teach. He also LOVES other books! When he falls asleep at night, he usually has about 15 books lying all around him.
We've been pretty busy the last couple of months and weeks. Since we have 4 kids out of the house, 3 at college and 1 on a mission, we decided this would be the best time to renovate a couple of rooms. We started with this room,
trimmed the window, repainted, and put in new carpet.
Then we started on two small rooms downstairs, took a wall out, and fixed it up to be one nice room with a walk in closet:
It was my job to mud, tape, texture, and paint. Jane and Natalee helped me mud, texture, and prime, and Johnny and Jane helped me paint. They were a big help! Brent and Johnny did the carpet pad and helped with the carpet.
