Happy Easter

Happy Easter from the Reeds'
Our Easter this year was cozy and quiet. We miss having family around for the holidays, but we do find time to spend with our little family. This year Daryl sang in the choir at church and Bayley played the piano. They did an awesomely sweet job. Our big family "discussion" at our Easter Feast was- Would there be Easter if there was no Christmas? and vice versa.

Easter Egg Hunt...Island Style

So we went to Antelope Island for their annual egg hunt. It was really fun, but COLD and WINDY!

Brittyn collecting eggs.

Pretty Great Salt Lake

Ruby making a run for some eggs.

It was a nice day despite the temperature, so we decided to explore some of the island.

We found this....

and this.
We already have this, but she is so cute.

RubyMae Turned Seven....Four Months Ago!

Ruby wanted a Barbie Party this year. She had old friends from school and new friends from the neighborhood. My favorite quote from Ruby that day...
 Me: Do you like your hair-do?
Ruby: Yes! I look just like George Washington!
And she sorta did.

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!

 Santa's Helpers!
 Decorating the kid tree. Yes, it's a fake! I never thought I would own a fake Christmas tree!
 Santa's elves making cookies.
 Making Christmas cards for their teachers,
 Bayley making the pretzel rods dipped in chocolate for their  teacher gifts.
 Finished gifts.
 Family photo shoot! We used a timer it's so much more fun that way. All the excitement of having to get into position before the camera takes the picture! We did have one casualty though. Soon after taking this picture Ruby grabbed a stocking and the stocking holder fell on the bridge of her nose splitting it open. We went to the ER and got it glued back together so she has a very light scar on the bridge of her nose.

Chritmas Tree Hunting

We normally go to Snowshoe in Orting and cut down our fresh Christmas tree. This year we are 16 hours away from our favorite Christmas tree farm. So we had to hunt for a place to cut down trees. We did find a little farm with about forty "Christmas trees". The trees we found were more blue than green and had prickly barbs. We had a great time and we were able to carry on our day after thanksgiving tradition.


 Just some pictures we took this fall. We really like this park. We go and let the kids walk around on warm Sunday afternoons.

 Carving pumpkins!

 Bayley and Brittyn were bumble bees for halloween.
 Ruby was a scary vampire and Max was a ninja.

Dinosaur Park

Exploring our surroundings. Fun day!
