I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

cookies, chicks and eggs

 We  made a quick stop at Chick-fil-A this week as 
all sales from chocolate chunk cookies were donated to 
Primary Children's Medical Center. 
You don't have to ask me twice to buy warm chocolate chip cookies,
especially for a good cause.

Oh let the fun begin.

These days coloring eggs is one of those things that's hard for me.
Kristen loved it so much. I had decided that I would just skip it this year.
Then I thought of Nora, and this being her first Easter decided that she could help. 
Some of the other kids were over so they helped too.

As I posted this picture I noticed that Claire is wearing Kristen's jacket, 
another reminder that Kristen is not far away.

And yes, Nora spilled the blue coloring and wanted to spill some more.

We filled almost 900 eggs in preparation for 
Grandma Kirton's annual Easter egg hunt. 
All of the kids helped and it still took several hours. 

Happy Easter!
