Thanks for the ideas of Easter--so creative! I also just realized they had the week before Easter events and scriptures to go along for each day on the Friend website here. Yesterday was a long but great day going to Dallas's doctor's appointment in Oahu. Brenna and Dallas each put their money together to make 75$ to pay for Brenna's flight (we paid the other half). We went to the zoo in the morning and then her appt. in the afternoon and then a stop at Old Navy to finish off the exhausting day. We left our house at 5:30 a.m. and got back at 8:45 p.m. Nathan had the day off so he stayed home with Layla and Sadie. Dallas had a Spring Festival at her school today where they performed this Hawaiian butterfly song. Here are the pictures from our trip:).

This is a picture captured right before church. Nathan had early meetings so he was home to help us get ready--so nice! Layla's dress is 3-6 months and I think fits her well.
I have always wanted to do something creative for Easter the week leading up to it for kids--like one thing everyday about Jesus. Have you heard of any ideas?
Potty training began today. So far we are 0-4! But I am not freaking out yet. I know it takes some getting used to and this is when I really appreciate tiled floors.
I also got my first filling today:(. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Luckily Nathan numbed me up really well.

Layla is 2 months old now and had her first immunizations today:(. She weighs 10 pounds 10 ounces and is 22 inches long. But we had the best getaway trip to LA last week--met up with all the family there and I got some one on one time with Layla.
I went to my first nephew Luke's baptism! Yay for Luke! It was great to see his Dad baptize him--It is a great thing to be 8! Then I also got to witness the official adoption in court of my newest nephew Adam! He is a special happy little baby. It was great to see everyone and I felt really lucky to go! All the kids had grown so much in a year!
Nathan had a great time with the three girls at home and deserves a great dad award. He even cleaned out the garage and did a huge amount of yard work! It looks great and so nice to come home to a clean house!
The week before was General Conference and we had a nice time at home together watching it. The kids kept asking when we were going to go to church. LDS.org has really updated everything and made everything so easy to watch. Another favorite website we always go on is friend.lds.org for kids. It has so many fun games/stories/songs for the girls.
I have lots of pictures from the Pfister's but at the McCoys, I always just take pictures with my Mom's camera--so you will have to look at Brooke or Courtney's blog to see more...
