For Easter, Derek built Holley a sandbox in the backyard. (It's the only thing we've even done in the yard yet!) Holley loves playing in the sandbox, and on Monday night Toodles got to go out with her while Daddy was grilling some steaks for Dinner. It was cute to see Toodles hopping around while Holley laughed at him, and tried to bury him in the sand!
Holley posing with Mommy! She loves to jump in the picture whenever she sees the camera, and then runs over to whomever is holding the camera so she can see the picture in the display! She loves to see pictures of herself! She likes to look over my shoulder while I'm updating the blog and tell me which pictures she wants to see again, and which ones are her favorite!

4 1/2 months pregnant! Here's what my belly looks like now, for those of you who've been asking if I'm showing yet, or as my mom put it, "are you fat yet?" (My family knows I don't mind being called fat when I'm pregnant cause I get so excited for my belly to show.) The other day Holley bumped my belly, and then rubbed it and said "sorry baby!" It was cute! In less than 2 weeks I'm supposed to have my 20 week ultrasound and we should be able to find out if it's a boy or a girl! It's been driving me crazy not knowing for so long, I was spoiled when we were expecting Holley to be able to find out early cause we had ultrasounds more often. I still think it's a boy, but Holley and Derek both think it's a girl. (Holley really wants a sister!) and YIPPEE 20 weeks means halfway there! YEAH! The last half will probably seem longer though cause we didn't even know we were expecting til halfway throught the 2nd month. Still, it's a landmark that means we're that much closer. We'll let you all know when we find out what we're having! (Or maybe we'll wait to keep you in suspense a little longer! j/k) WE CAN'T WAIT!!!!
Some friends in our ward invited Holley to come see their colts. Holley was nervous about getting on at first, but agreed when mom said she'd hold her while she was on it. She thought it was neat. She even fed one of the mommy horses, the mommy horse licked the grain right out of Holley's hand, she thought that was funny! One of the horses is pregnant, horses are pregnant for more like a year than nine months! I'm glad I'm not a horse!

Holley Had a Blast Coloring Easter Eggs! She was pretty upset when they were all colored and she couldn't do anymore! I really just didn't think that between the 3 of us we'd be able to eat more than a dozen and a half hard boiled eggs! Holley also got to meet the Easter bunny and give it a Hug! The Easter Bunny showed up at the ward Easter Egg hunt on Saturday! Holley is usually very afraid of big costumed characters, but she was thrilled to see the Easter bunny, and ask if she had gotten the picture Holley had drawn for her! We just had the camcorder but if we can figure out how to get a still off of it, we'll post a picture! It was really cute!
