6 Years

Happy 6th Anniversary to the most amazing husBEN. We had a wonderful evening out together last night going to dinner and walking around Austin. We were reminiscing about how much has happened these past 6 years and predicted what the next 6 years will bring. I love Ben so much and am grateful for all he is and helps me to become. I love calling him my best friend. I love you Benny-Boo!!!

(I couldn't bare putting a pregnant picture up so this is of us last year on our cruise celebrating our anniversary)

We celebrated Easter all week long (or should I say all month long). Back at the end of March Nana and Pop were in town for conference. There was the big Martino Egg Hunt the weekend that Ben and I went to California to look for a house. Grace and Abigail got to enjoy in the fun with cousins while we were away.

We had an egg hunt with playgroup, Gracie had her preschool egg hunt, egg hunt for church, and Scott & White Hospital Egg Hunt. Needless to say the girls had tons of fun and got tons of eggs.

Easter Morning the girls found the dyed eggs we had colored the night before throughout the house. The Easter bunny hid their baskets and left clues leading them to it. Gracie thought this was so fun to go on a "basket hunt". After finding their baskets in the bath tub, we had a wonderful morning before heading off to church.

The week leading up to Easter we talked every night about the events leading up to Jesus Resurrection. I'm happy to say that on Easter morning when we asked Gracie what the real meaning of Easter was she told us, "Not bunny's and candy, but how Jesus died for us and Lives again". I'm so grateful for this time of year and the knowledge that we have that He Lives and we can return to live with him one day!

Gracie is playing her first sport Everything about it is ($35), age group is 3-4 year olds, 6 players to a team, only for the month of April, one practice a week, and games every Saturday. The best part of all is her coach...Daddy. Ben's dream has come true. He's been talking about coaching our kids in sports since before they were born. It is perfect timing since he's schedule is so light right now. Grace loves having Coach Daddy. The practice and games are pretty funny with lots of chaos, but sure are cute and fun to watch.
