We had dinner with my grandma and aunt tonight. I invited them over and made chicken breast stuffed with Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese, these sweet potatoes, and my grandma made a delicious chocolate cake. It's always nice to spend time with them. I see less of them than I thought I would once we moved here. My grandma has a more active social life than I do. It's sad, I know.

Hayden is crawling. He seems to have a "danger" detector and goes straight for things like the chords by the computer and t.v. and the glider. He keeps me on my toes. He's also developed quite an attitude. When he isn't given what he wants when he wants it he kicks his feet and screams. I know I shouldn't laugh, but it's so funny when he does it. I can tell he is going to be one of those babies that learns the word "no" very quickly. Even with his crawling into danger and fit throwing, I love him to pieces and can't get enough of him. That doesn't mean I didn't completely enjoy a break to sip coffee and converse with Jen on Sunday. Good times with old friends (the friendship is old not Jen) are always welcome! We talked and laughed for hours and covered every major subject except for politics although there was talk about that Ayers guy so maybe we did cover politics.

Erin has decided to try out for cheer leading. I'm signing her up for a tumbling class next week. She's taken a few before so I have no doubt she'll do well. I just have to keep her focused on it. She has a tendency to bounce all over the place. I have that same tendency so it's hard to keep us both on track.

My mind is still full of thoughts about the surgery (mostly the "I don't want to do this" variety) but I'm trying to push those thoughts away for now. It may be best if I let it sneak up on me. Then it will be done and over with before I have a chance to really think about it. That plan will probably only last until they call me for the pre-op appointments this month. Expect a full blown tantrum at that time. I really am trying to keep it all in perspective.

We're having a big family Easter and my aunt wants to know what I'm bringing. Anyone have any good ideas? My aunt requested the sweet potatoes mentioned above so I'll be taking those, but I'd like to take something else too.

I do miss the big family thing on holidays. I'm glad you guys have a good one.

I keep the Easter menu light, I've bought a ham, will make deviled eggs (for Em)some sort of dinner roll, Levi has a wonderful fresh green bean recipe, I may make potato salad just for me and of course dessert - strawberry jello cake and cheesecake lemon bars :)
