10 years of hard work have finally paid off and Friday you will receive your Bachelor's Degree of Computer Engineering. All the hard work, long hours and late nights are finally over and now you can relax and enjoy your accomplishment. I am so very proud of you and am thankful for the many sacrifices that you have made for me and the kids. I have never met a person so dedicated and hard working as you. There have been many days this past semester that you have missed out on seeing the kids and I know how hard that has been on you. I love you so much and hope that you are as proud of yourself as I am. I love you so much.

I took Carter to his 1st Utah Jazz game. We were lucky enough to get some really good tickets to the Jazz's last game of the regular season. We were in the lower bowl about twenty rows up. We had 4 tickets, so Kevin took Eli, and I took Carter and we had a blast. We ate dinner at the Gateway, and then we bought the boys foam fingers and found our seats. It was fun to see Carter get so excited and to cheer for the Jazz and cheer for "Boozer". That seems to be his favorite Jazz player. Carter played basketball this year and so he kind of has a better idea of what basketball is all about. During the third quarter he asked if he could use my cell phone to call home to Christy. I asked why, and he said, "I have to tell mom how cool this is, and tell her that we are having a good time." I handed him the phone and he had to tell Christy all about it. About the 4th quarter, the boys started to get tired. The Jazz kicked butt against the Clippers and we had a blast watching it. It was probably one of the funnest nights I have had in a long time. It was fun to spend time with my brother Kevin, Eli, and Carter. I love all three of them so much.

I guess my mom thought our kids needed more candy! She had a really fun Easter Egg Hunt in her backyard for all the kids. They had a blast running around the yard finding all the eggs. Some of the eggs had money in them. Also they each got one big egg which they could turn in for a "big" prize which happened to be a squirt gun. So yes, after the Easter egg hunt, we had a water fight with squirt guns. It was a lot of fun.
Our whole family went to church together at my parents ward in Pleasant View this sunday. It was really awesome. Carter, Eli, and Owen wore matching shirts and pants, and Cambree, Calee, and Isabelle wore matching dresses. The boys looked very handsome and the girls all looked really cute.
Our kids love to color Easter Eggs. That is one thing about Easter that they absolutely love. We always make them strip down in order to do it, just in case they spill the dye. So here is Carter, Cambree, Eli, and Owen all shirtless and sitting on the counter coloring eggs with my sister Emily. After they ran out of eggs, my mom had this crazy idea that they should dye feet. So, that is why their feet are dyed in the pictures.
Every year we go to Pleasant View's Saturday morning Easter Egg Hunt. This year the weather was really nice and our kids had a blast. Kevin and Mandy are in town this week and so Eli and Owen got to come to the Easter Egg hunt too. This was also Calee's first big Easter Egg Hunt.
