Eventful weekend!

I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend! We had a pretty busy few days, but lots of fun.

We started out on Friday with a little bit of much needed sleeping in! It was great after the brutal week i had at work! Then we got up and cleaned up and made our contribution to the pot luck dinner we were going to at Chad's Grandparents that night. Then we headed to Dartmouth. Dinner was nice. It was an Easter get together as well as a welcome home to Ben Fielden, Chad's Cousin who just got home from his mission in New Zealand. It was good to see him. Then, during dinner Mallory (Chad's sister) made a big announcement...her and Jake Langley are engaged! Very exciting. They are planning on getting married on June 13th. So us girls got to hear all the plans so far, everything sounds great. It is going to happen fast so they are keeping it pretty simple, which is a good idea! I think it will turn out really great! Congratulations you guys! And Jake will be a nice addition to the family!

Here is the happy couple...i stole this picture from facebook.
So after that excitement we went to the temple to do sealings with the family. It was nice since I haven't been there in way too long. It was pretty busy that day. They did over 3000 ordinances just that day. That is like 1/6 (i think) of all of last year, just in one day! I really need to start going more regularly again. When we were first married we went every Thursday for the 1st year.

Then on Saturday we headed back to the temple in the morning, only this time it was for my sister. Laura went through for the 1st time. It was a fun experience. I still think of Laura as my "little" sister, which she is but she still seems so young to me. She is leaving for her mission in about a month...crazy! We will be trying to get to my parents place as much as we can between now and then.

After the temple we went to my parents place in new glasgow for the rest of the weekend. Every time we go home it seems like my older sister Amy wants to do a family picture. She is taking a photography course so she like to practice with us. I think some of them turned out pretty nice.








We had a good time though, we went out for dinner, played games both board and video and of course had out annual easter egg hunt. It is pretty funny that the youngest of us is 21 and we still hunt for eggs. Dad just cant get enough!

Well, I hope you all had a good weekend full of fun and treats!
