Easter is filled with egg dying, egg hunting, and lots of candy. We are also grateful for the reminder of the Savior's Atonement and sacrifice. We are blessed to members of His great gospel and to know of His plan of happiness. We find comfort and peace in this crazy world because of the knowledge we have that we can be together forever through the power and blessings of the priesthood.

April Birthdays

We celebrated Bill's 38th and Taylor's 11th birthdays this month. For Bill's birthday we went to Marley's for sliders (he has an obsession with mini-burgers) and picked up sugar cookies from Smart Cookie. Taylor had a mini-celebration with her friend Kaitlin. They went for pedicures and saw the Hannah Montana movie. Another year older and hopefully wiser...

Bill's attempt at "authentic" homemade bread

My attempt at healthy pizza frietes

A few weeks ago I was making dough in the bread maker for pizza frietes. Bill then decided that he wanted to make bread the old fashioned way. The contest had begun, his muscles against my machine. I decided to bake my dough instead of the customary frying method. It turned out okay, fried of course tastes much better. Bill's bread was great for his first attempt. It wasn't very pretty, he will work on his presentation next time. I'm so lucky to have a husbad who desires even to try to bake, maybe a desire to do laudry is not far off....

Pathetic, I know...

My American Idol Top 5

Allison Iraheta
Has talent, but seems too 'weathered' for only being 16 years old.

Adam Lambert
A real 'artist', but I cannot like him based on my no crazies principle.

Lil' Rounds
Has tremendous talent, I just don't care for her style of music.

Danny Gokey
Used to be my #1, but sings every song the same way, needs to switch things up.

Kris Allen
Love Him! Has originality, talent, and stage swagger!
As for the rest of last night's performances : Scott's was the best for him so far, I still think the pity vote will wear off soon and somebody has got to tell him to wear sunglasses. Megan was AWFUL! I hope she goes tonight. Anup sang well but I just find his performances boring. Matt was okay, but I think forgettable just like he was last week. I know that a woman in her mid-thirties SHOULD have something better to do than handicap a reality t.v. competition, but I don't! Let me know what you think.
