Easter Blessings

Easter almost got away from me this year. We didn't do a lot of our normal traditions which makes me a little sad but with Noah's birthday, spring break and planning the blessing there literally were not enough hours in the day.
Sunday morning the boys woke up bright and early. They were so excited to see what the Easter Bunny brought......the blow up light sabers were and are a huge hit!

On Saturday we went to the easter egg hunt at church. The boys loved it!

Sunday was a BIG day we blessed Rhys and Ryan Missy blessed Brady. It was so fun to celebrate together and share the day with them. I love that these two little guys will have each other for years to come!!

One of my favorite things about the weekend was having my family stay with us. I LOVED it. I was so happy to have my brothers come down from BYU and having them in the circle was amazing!!

Our first family of 6 picture!

It was very bittersweet blessing Rhys. I couldn't get over that it would be the last time I would put on that outfit on a baby. Jeff did an amazing job on the blessing. I am so lucky to have a great example for my boys. I love that I can count on him he always honors his priesthood and takes pride in this special day!

We are so lucky to be surronded by such wonderful men who could be in the circle to bless our sweet boy.

In the circle this time: Jeff Trapp, Dave Shaw, Aaron Shaw, Michael Shaw, Sam Rath, Rich Heaton, Don Neilson, Jim Neilson, Alan Neilson, John Neilson, Brian George, (I hope I am not forgetting any)

Thanks everyone!!

Rhys and Brady..........

Me and Missy with our sweet boys. It has been so fun having a baby with Missy!

And of course the day wouldn't have been complete without an egg hunt. Too bad it started pouring. Which resulted with the kids in cars and the adults cleaning up! Still worth it though

I am so sad that I didn't get any pictures of the brunch spread. I LOVE parties and had so much fun planning and prepping. Thank you everyone who contributed and helped in the kitchen!!!
