Sugar and Spice...

I hung up a sheet and tried to take some 'professional pictures' as usual, the kids were hard to picture together, and surprisingly Megan was better this time than Alyssa. It is usually the other way around.

Car trouble

So since Caleb has been gone the car has gone into the shop three times. Getting the car fixed has been Caleb's only job (I long ago stopped asking him to fix lightbulbs and such) and he wasn't here to do it. The first time was when I got a flat tire an hour from home on the freeway I knew how to change a tire (eventhough it had been a long time) and gave it a shot. I got the car jacked up which took like 20 minutes and was starting to put the tire on and the jack sank in the mud and the car fell over. That is when I was about to call for help, but someone had called the ODOT people and a guy came with a fancy jack and fixed the car. Then I took the car in for a tune up and it took three days and a lot of money. Then the AC just died again after the spark plugs have been replaced twice so there is something else wrong so the car is back in the shop. My inlaws have been great helping to get the car to and from the shop, but I just hate car trouble and it is Caleb's one job and he isn't here to do it (I'm sure he would if he was here). Oh well, just wanted to vent for a minute.

Well we got our orders and it looks like we are going to be stationed in Dague, Korea!! I think we will be there for two years, but we don't have the official word. I was pretty worried at first but I think that I am just stressing about the little things instead of just thinking about the big picture. So it is still sort of scarry, but it will be a great adventure as well. Caleb comes back for a week or so the end of May and then he has to go for a month before he can request for his family to come so it looks like we will be seperated for another few months.

So I was a slacker and didn't take any pictures on Easter because I didn't do much and it was raining, but then our ward had its easter party the week after conference and my friend gave me these cute matching dresses for the girls and I got in the picture mood so we took some pictures in the in-laws backyard after the party and did a little egg hunt.
Enjoying the eggs. They were being stinkers and wouldn't look at the camera at the same time.
Even Anna joined in the fun (she hid the eggs).
Pondering lifes mystery
This picture shows off the dresses, but isn't that great of the girls.
I got Megan to smile in this picture by saying "say Candy!"

I think they enjoyed themselves, but you wouldn't know it by the pictures.
The hunt
