This past weekend has been fun and filled with family! Friday night after work I met my whole family..Matt, Amy and their kids even and we went out to eat! So much fun seeing them since it only happens a few times a year! Saturday morning I woke up early and walked the was beautiful! Then Luke and I took Gracie to the Deweyville Easter egg hunt which was a blast. Then we went back over to my parent's house in Logan and had another Easter egg hunt at their house and then had a fabulous lunch and I got to spend the afternoon chatting with my cute sister in law.

Gracie looked beautiful in her new Easter Dress..I will have to get pics on here! Yesterday church was amazing. I felt like it was all for me yesterday. The lessons hit really hard and touched so close to home. I feel like Heavenly Father knew what struggles I have been facing and the lessons yesterday just hit the spot:) Luke gave me a beautiful Easter Lily...It was just a perfect day! I hope everyone's Easter was as special as mine.

Red & White Pasta Bake

This is the easiest recipe you will ever make! Super easy and a winner every time!

4 cups uncooked pasta (I like Penne)

1 15 oz. jar alfredo sauce

1 24. oz jar marinara sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Boil the pasta, drain, then add the sauces and the mozzarella cheese and mix until incorporated. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until bubbly, then add the cup of parmesan on top and cook for 5 more minutes. Pair with some garlic bread and enjoy!!!!!!!

Nancy Law

Tonight I went to the viewing of a very special lady. Nancy Law was my violin teacher all growing up and such a HUGE inspiration to me. She helped mold me into the violist that I am today, and I owe so much to her. She is so talented and always inspired me to not only be a better violinist, but to be a better person. She leaves behind a darling husband and 4 beautiful kids. I got to talk to Seth (her son) tonight for a little while before the viewing...we have been friends long before Nancy became my teacher. He was telling me that his sister had her baby the day before Nancy passed away and she never had the opportunity to meet this new baby. I am so grateful for eternal families. I know without a shadow of a doubt Nancy will be watching over her cute family and all of her grand kids. I am so blessed and grateful for the knowledge I have of the gospel and the Plan of Salvation. The only thing that helps me through these tough times is focusing on eternal families. I believe that those that have already passed on are so much closer to us than we realize. So many times I feel my grandparents or my uncle Randy in the car with me when I am driving to or from work...

This world has lost such an amazing woman. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Law family at this time. Love to all.
