Easter Egg Hunt!

For Easter Weekend we had the Gadd's over with their baby boy who is just one week younger than Kaili. Jamie was my mission companion and BYU roommate and we get to see each other every once in a while. We thought it would be fun to send Kaili and Kale on their first easter egg hunt together. It took them a second to figure it out, but once Kaili figured out that she didn't have to carry all the eggs in her hands and that there was candy in each of the eggs, she had a heyday. I'm pretty sure Easter baskets and plastic eggs are her new favorite toys.

Kaili and Kale hashing it out!

This is where it gets messy!

Our Little Mess Maker

So I was looking through my pictures to decide where to start up again, and I compiled more than enough evidence to update you on my daughter's personality. So there are some people who are blessed to have a child that will sit on their lap for more than 5 minutes, or who will play daintily in one spot with one or two toys, but I feel lucky to have a daughter with a personality that is far from that. I like to think of her as my little Wall-E. It is not uncommon to find my mascara in the laundry room, a spatula in our bedroom, or my mail mixed in with her toys. She has to have something in both hands most of the time, and almost all the time she is on the hunt for something new and interesting -- It definitely makes church and grocery shopping very interesting, believe me. I snapped a couple of shots over the past few weeks that should give you a better idea of who our little girl is. Kaili's taught us that a computer mouse can be a phone, a guitar stand makes a great seat, and a bowl is an excellent hat. We love you Kaili!

First Time For Everything

Here was Kaili's snowman this March. Needed to put it in here for documentation purposes. It was actually my very first snowman as well. Apparently this is a larger sized snowman... I had no idea.
