Our Easter was nice & cozy; what more could you ask for? We went to an Egg Hunt at The Homestead in Midway and because there was still two feet of snow they had it indoors, boring!! Anyway it lasted about 30 sec. and McKenzie was left standing without a thing- next year we'll be doing our own Egg Hunt in the backyard or something. Bunch of Vultures. Please enjoy the slide show below of all the festivities:

Before my Great-Grandma died she held these HUGE Easter Egg Hunts in her back field. Eggs were worth actual money and could be sold at face value; how else could they make 14 dozen deviled eggs? The greatest prize was the candy you could find from the year before and believe me when I say: Cousin so-and-so was no longer asked to hide eggs. The best part of this Easter tradition for me was getting together like a week before and sitting around Grandma's kitchen table dying eggs and stuffing sacks full of candy (lets face it- probably one of the only places I could interact with kids my own age). Every year around this time I think about how much fun I had and kind of wish I had a bigger family to carry on the tradition, and then I wake up from that dream and realize how crazy I was for thinking that and could someone stop me from sniffing the vinegar? Seriously though- I miss you Grandma Walker and your outrageous Easter Egg Hunts!!

Thank you to my friend Amylee who came over this evening and helped me give my blog a "facelift". I've wanted to make it a little fresher for a LONG time now but, alas I'm helpless when it comes to technology (I still don't know how to properly use our camera- just put it on the "easy" level Heath tells me). P.S. I think that McKenzie had such a great time playing with Will (she didn't scream herself to sleep, yeahhhhhhh!!!!!) Amy you must come over every night- sorry that's just how it is.
So, I liked it. I'm not usually a fan of westerns but, it was interesting. I think that anyone could identify with the main character (played by the cheater: Brad Pitt). He struggles with inner demons for most of his life & by the end you almost think he wants to die. Kind of sad... I give The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford 3 out of 5 dead Jesse James' bodies.

Apparently I'm the only person on this planet that didn't hear how awful this movie was, or I could say- I just wanted to "confirm" what everyone was saying, yeah that's it! The projector that was showing the movie broke down and we had the option of either seeing the end or getting free passes. All I'm going to say about this movie is that we chose the free passes. I give 10,000 BC a 0 out of 5 giant kittys with spear teeth.

While I was writing about the last movie, I remembered that Heath and I watched 28 weeks later. This has a very similar storyline to I am Legend- Hello Hollywood getting a little sloppy don't ya think? No one I know honestly NO ONE I KNOW would ever see this movie; all the more reason to write about it. 1. Incredibly gruesome right from the beginning 2. this movie didn't make Americans look very intelligent (we don't need any help people, we're doing just fine on our own, thanks W..) and 3. I thought the "zombies" were a little over done. 28 Weeks Later receives 1 out of 5 creepy man-eating persons.
As mentioned below, I recently (well, not THAT recent) saw I am Legend. I went into the theater with a pretty severe head cold and during the most excrutiatingly tender moment of the film I was crying so hard (combined with an already excessive amount of snot) I literally couldn't breathe. I try not to judge people on their religious beliefs but I have a hard time seeing films done by Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and the Smith clan. Hello? Scientology: sounds cool- really isn't. But nonetheless I like Will Smith, and I really liked this movie. Halla to the four-legged friends in our lives. I give I am Legend 4 out of 5 mannequins.
I haven't seen a movie in probably a hundred years, except I did see I Am Legend not too long ago and just forgot to review it for you all. Anyway- this is about the movie Becoming Jane. Jane Austen is one of my favorite author's blah blah blah..... I was surprised to find that I really didn't know that much about her and assuming that every detail in this film is correct (laugh inserted) she actually wasn't all that happy. Loved the guy-loved her- loved the family- cried like a big, fat, incredibly intelligent, fabulous baby!!! If you're into this genre go and see it. I give Becoming Jane 3 out of 5 ink quills.

After many a year without my bunco fix, I was finally rewarded for my patience with a new group of friends and some dice. I really think that a "girls" night is essential to living a normal life. I was so "hyped" up on candy and fun that I didn't get to sleep last night until way past 12. (I sound super old) Anyway, I thought everyone had a good time- I know I did! See ya next month friends....
Ok. This is a few cute pictures of my friend Amy's little boy (Will) playing with McKenzie. Amy watches McKenzie for me on Monday mornings, even though it's only been once, but as many of you know- once with McKenzie is enough. Will is hilarious to watch as he tries to get "close" to our small animal (McKenzie) it really is no good for him. Keep up the good work Will, she'll probably come around someday....

So, I went shopping yesterday in Utah County. Up here we call it: The Costco Run. Anyway, imagine my surprise when I find absolutely no snow on the ground! It was as if spring were actually something real that you could see and touch. I was jealous until I realized that us "heberites" don't know what the word "inversion" means.
P.S. McKenzie is feeling much better.
