Spring is just about here...everything is popping up all over (and the deer are eating them as fast as they come up). I feel like Anne Shirley in the spring, riding the wings of anticipation. I am missing the blue bonnets this spring but I get my favorites this year - tulips. So, for your enjoyment, here are a few pictures of the anticipation of spring.

The crocus are always the first to appear.

My favorite flower tulips!! They are popping up along with the daffodils behind them.

And, of course, my favorite thing this spring is my little Sam who is also growing and blossoming like crazy :)

My parents don't have any outdoor toys for the boys in their yard but my two neighbors have swing sets and trampolines. They always encourage us to come over and play in their yards and for years we have been going over to the Clarkes and the McDonalds to play. Yesterday, Hyrum and Math were outside jumping at the McDonalds. Brother McDonald came out and talked to them. They came home telling me what a nice person he was and how much fun they had talking to them so I told them a little bit about Br. McDonald. He has been a mission pres, stk pres, general authority and now is the stk patriarch. This is how the conversation concluded... Hyrum-"Wow, he is like the the greatest guy we've ever met."
Math-"No! You forget, Jesus Christ is the greatest guy we ever met."
Seth-"No, Jesus is not the greatest guy, he is our Savior."

Lately when the boys are playing if they ever "get" Seth then he tells them he is not dead, he is resurrected and he keeps playing :)

Before I forget...

Hyrum's prayer tonight at family home evening included the following.
"Bless we will have a good test here on earth." No, our FHE wasn't related to this subject...this kid kills me.
