Conference, Cold Sores, and Easter Bunnies

I love conference weekend! I have such a great love and respect for our Prophet and his Counselors and Apostles. Being able to watch them and heed to their counsel has helped me get to know them on a more personal level, and it makes my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father that much stronger, I feel closer to him. I think for the first time in years, I watched conference all by myself. Nate had the boys this weekend so it was a little weird not being able to hear the kids in the background. Watching alone did have it's perks though, Like the fact that I was able to sing the hymns as loud and as off key as I wanted without putting any one's hearing at risk :0).

There was really only one downside to this weekend. I've been a little stressed because I've been trying to find a job for the weekends, when I don't have the kiddos, to try to bring in some more income. I haven't had much luck. I'VE been handling the stress ok, but apparently my BODY hasn't. When I'm really anxious or stressed out I break out into cold sores, see................

So, I guess I've been a little more stressed than I thought (or at least my body thinks so), cuz this is what I woke up to this morning. Gross, huh. This is just the first one, I can feel 2 more trying to pop up. :(

I can't believe that Easter is next week already! My boys are so excited :) So on Friday I took them to go see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Tytan didn't really know what to make of the Rabbit, but Eathan was ecstatic :0)
I do have to admit, this is one of the CUTEST Easter Bunnies that I've seen so far :)

Oh yeah! Eathan is now riding the bus to Pre-school! He's growing up so fast :( He loves the bus though, it makes him feel like a "big kid."
