We love to go to Safford for Easter and hang out with our family and let Melody play with her cousins. We have started a kind of tradition, of going to Alisha and Robert's house Saturday before Easter to have a cook out and an Easter egg hunt. Robert lets the grass grow a little longer than usual so it isn't WAY too easy but basically the kids just have fun running around and there are always enough eggs to make everyone happy. Melody likes to get a lot of eggs and then she gives away most of the candy because she doesn't like to eat too many types of candy. Sunday, we go to church with Grammy and Papa and have family dinner at their house before it is time to head home.
In March 2011, my only brother, Andrew, got married to Denise Henry. We are so lucky to have Denise for a new sister and her son Brandon for a new nephew and cousin! Melody and Lauren got to be flower girls and Melody got to walk down the aisle with Brandon. Denise had her friends do Melody and Lauren's hair and the girls were so excited to have their hair done professionally. After the wedding, there was a dinner and then a dance. The kids all had a blast showing their "moves" and loved it when Uncle Andrew and Aunt Denise came and danced with them too. Brandon and Camden showed off their break dancing and made us all smile. It was a fun night, we love you guys so much!
To kick off Spring Break 2011, Melody and I re-decorated a magnet board to fit Mel's style and room. Her favorite color is green and she still Loves cats so the theme of the board is probably no surprise to any of Mel's family or friends :). Shelley had given us some vinyl cat and cat paw prints a while back and Melody wanted them for her board and we went to the store and Mel picked out the color green she wanted to paint it.. It was fun to work together and even more fun to see how excited and proud she was of her board. We hung it up in her room and she put up a few of the drawings she had made the year before.

Aunt Brenda takes her grandkids to Disneyland when they turn 8 and in Feb. of 2011, Melody and Taya were lucky enough to get included and go with Mason and Aunt Brenda! The girls left on Valentine's Day and flew to California and spent the night and then went to Disneyland the next day. They squeezed in all the rides and fun they could into one day and then flew back home. Melody had such a good time. I am not surprised, going anywhere with Aunt Brenda is FUN! Thank you for including Melody, this was a great experience for her!!!
