The Hunt

We did some Easter egg hunting on Saturday! Emery did great, finding a total of 15 eggs. We'd practiced all week so he'd know what to do and our hard work paid off!

Emery playing...

Not much new here...just trying to keep Emery busy!
Emery and Jack are finally playing together (sometimes)

Emery loves to bring us his shoes so he can go outside to play. This time he just forgot to put his clothes on first

We went to the zoo with Laura P and had a blast! Emery had more fun at the playground though than looking at the animals. Oh well, he'll get it one of these days

On St. Patrick's Day Emery picked out his own clothes... his swim trunks!
More playing at the zoo

Here is a clip of Emery pushing Jack around the apartment

Atlanta Hawks

We went to the Atlanta Hawks basketball game on Wednesday the 12th and had a blast! We got in free (thanks Justin R!) for our YM/YW activity. Emery did better than expected and we only left at the end of the 3rd quarter. It was a late night but well worth it!

Drawing with Emery

Man Tag

I was tagged by Jenny to tell about my man, so here it goes...

-What is his full name? Joel Emerson Neff

-How long have you been married? 3 years

-How long did you date? 8 months (plus engaged for4 months)

-Who eats more sweets? Joel, but probably only by a little; I eat a lot too

-Who said I love you first? I did

-How old is he? 26

-Who is taller? He is

-Who is smarter? He is; Engineering is so over my head!

-Who can sing better? No idea, but we won't quit our day jobs!

-Who does the laundry? Me usually but he helps whenever I need it

-Who pays the bills? I do

-Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? He does

-Who mows the lawn? No lawn yet but I've been known to mow

-Who cooks dinner? I do usually, unless I'm burned out then he'll do it for me :)

-Who drives? Me; but only because I'm a horrible backseat driver and it drives him crazy! (Except for Sundays, he drives; I don't know why--probably because I'm always running late and he goes and gets the car for me!)

-Who is more stubborn? I am! I'm lucky he puts up with me

-Who kissed who first? Joel kissed me, and it was the best first kiss ever!

-Who asked who out? I asked Joel out but was turned down (he was going out with another girl that night!) but then he asked me out to a BYU basketball game for our first date.

-Who proposed? Joel did; I knew it was coming but he tried to surprise me and be romantic but I wouldn't get out of the car because I didn't want to get any more mosquito bites! I ruin everything!

-Who has more siblings? Depends on how you are counting. Joel has more actual sibling but I've got more if you count half-siblings... it's complicated

-Who wears the pants? It depends on the day but probably Joel

I now tag Laura P and Mary R!

Mr. Giggles

Emery loves to giggle!

Sitting with dad

I found this cute little chair at Ross for like 10 buck and it is a hit! Emery drags it everywhere around the house. But I just hope it lasts (it's not the highest quality in the world!). But we'll see how glad I am about it when he figures out he can use it to climb up on everywhere, not just to turn on and off the lights!
