So for Easter we didn't hide any eggs for Olivia to find. But I did find a really cute, great condition little vanity for her- it was only $8 :) and got her some pretend makeup, and hair accessories- blow dryer, flat iron, etc... since she is always wanting to wear my makeup and put it on me, and loves to do hair. She is such a cute girly girl. The vanity lights up and makes noise and she just loves it. She is so cute with the little toys too. She makes the sound for the blow dryer, and she loves to "paint" her toes and fingers with the polish- and mommy and daddy aswell:) We didnt buy her any candy or hide eggs only because we knew she would be getting some from grandma and grandpa. We bought her a really cute dress but i'll have to take a picture of her in it later, since she was a little stinker with taking pictures yesterday.

First Bed

So yes Olivia has her first bed. She has had it for a couple of weeks now and its quite a challenge to keep her in it. She loves having a bed- but not at bedtime:) So we usually will go lay by her until she falls asleep, which doesn't take too long... thank goodness:) Plus, she can open her bedroom door so when we just put her to bed by herself she thinks its so fun to run out of her room, and it gets kind of tiring after a while putting her back to be over and over. We are still waiting to get some side rails, but for now we have some pillows that block her since she moves like crazy when she sleeps.

Fun Weekend With Family

This past weekend, my parents invited us to go to St. George- it was their spring break. We left on Friday and met them there along with Stephanie and Jon, and Melanie. It was so much fun to get away and relax before we have the other baby:) The weather was wonderful high 70's and 80's. We hung out at the pool, shopped, and played games, and just relaxed:) I got a horrible sunburn though... pics below.... Stephanie was kind enough to take some pics of Olivia for us also. Olivia had so much fun swimming in the pool! It was so much fun hanging out with my family. I wish every weekend could be that relaxing- without the sunburn. We stayed Friday, Saturday, and then came home on Sunday.

I got a really nasty sunburn from laying out the first day we got there. It was really weird that I burned this bad cause I dont burn! The only way I can look at it positivly is, all last week we were debating on if we should go cause of how far along I am and how my last dr appointment went. So I think the reason I got the sunburn was so I couldnt move as much so I wouldnt have the baby while we were in St. George- a blessing in disguise, maybe? My legs are finally feeling a lot better.
Here are a few more pics:

This isnt from our trip but I wanted to post a video of Olivia dancing to her favorite movie lately:

Feeding The Sheep

So a while back my mom took Olivia over to one of her neighbors house to see the new sheep that were born. One of the neighbors took some pictures and so my mom sent me them today. They are so cute of her trying to pet, and feed them a bottle:)

Fun Times With Grandpa

Mike took Olivia over to his parents during the middle of the Saturday session of Conference. He said Olivia went right over to grandpa. Mike tried to give Olivia a ride on the four wheeler but she only wanted Grandpa:) He let her pick out a hat, and I guess she kept it on the whole time while she was there.

Olivia has such a cute imagination. I recorded her a little last night feeding her baby doll:

Quick Update

The days seem to go by so fast lately. I am 35 weeks pregnant and its going by super fast! I just hope this baby waits to come:) I can't beleive in about a month we will have a little boy:) So in the past.. . hmmm, month I guess:)... we have been pretty busy. We went up to Idaho to visit Amy and her family last weekend. It was really nice to visit with them and play Ticket to Ride:) Olivia is growing up so fast. She has such a fun imagination. She loved playing with her cousins in Idaho. Mike won a Utah Jazz contest where we got to go meet some of the Jazz players and then get to see a movie. Mike got a basketball signed by three of the players- Hayward, Harris and Price so now we just need to get the rest of the team to sign it. Then we saw the movie- Rango- I dont think it will be one that I buy but at least it was free:) So it seems that this conference has been based mostly on family, and I just wanted to say how grateful I am for my family. For the wonderful man I fell in love with and get to spend the rest of my life with! He is an amazing husband and Im so lucky to have him in my life. He works so hard to support our family and I love him for it. For the sweet little princess, that has sort of claimed our bed as her own:) She brings so much joy to Mike and me. Everything she does... I wouldnt trade any of it for anything. Yes she does have those "terrible two's" moments... a lot lately... but we love her so much! Im so glad we are teaching her how to pray and that reading the scriptures are important.- well as much as you can teach a toddler. It will be so exciting to see how the next month goes... especially with a new edition coming:)
