Easter and Conference

We had such a great time being completely lazy on Sunday. Cole and Pam came home and we all went to my mom and dad's for conference. We enjoyed the speakers and the messages they delivered and had fun discussing what we learned together. McKenzie bought the Blind Side the other day and we watched it to end our day- it is such a good movie! Cole is leaving for the summer so it was great to see him and Pam- I love my family!

Weekend in Salt Lake

My cousin just got back from his mission to Mozambique (the same mission Derrick went to) so we went to Utah with my family for his homecoming and stayed for the weekend. You would think that I would have more than 3 pictures but this is all I have. My mom and I went shopping while Derrick and Kenzie had a House marathon and Cole and my dad went golfing. We had a lot of fun.

Derrick got a sore on his nose from wearing his cast... poor thing!

Ouch Chawlie!

Derrick had a seriously deviated septum which he had corrected by Dr. Smith last week. The first couple of days were miserable for him but he is doing much better. He has to have his cast on for one more week and apparently getting the packing out last Sunday was more horrific then child birth. He let me take a picture this morning but he doesn't want me posting any from the day of his surgery. He had to have gauze under his nose held on by a strap that hooked behind each ear. All of the nurses in my office commented on what a sweetheart he is and he melted my heart when he kept asking me to stay in the room and hold his hand.
