To go private....or not to go private?

So going private is all the rage right now. I have seriously been debating whether I should join the club. I would love to hear everyones reasons for going private, or not going private. Is it a safety issue or what? I always get frustrated when I find someone I know and I go to click on their blog and it is private, and I don't have their email address. I would hate to miss out on all those times when an old friend finds my blog and we get keep in touch. Please, whether I know you or not I would love to hear your reasoning. Thanks!

Maggie's Baptism

This past weekend was my little sister Maggie's baptism, so we got to spend another fun weekend down in St. George. My Dad did a great job with the baptism and confirmation. Lacy gave a nice talk, and Maggie bore her sweet little testimony. Everyone was invited to a BBQ and swimming party later that afternoon. It was Ella's first time swimming, and she loved it! I think she would have stayed in there until she shriveled up if we would have let her. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the nice weather! I don't even want to mention what we came home to....... SNOW! :( We had a great time and are so proud of you Maggie!

Wouldn't you be scared?

I ran across this picture today, and just had to post it. For those of you that really know my sister Nikki this pic won't surprise you. You might not be able to tell from this picture, but Nikki really is one of Ella's favorite people. Whenever she walks through the door Ella gets so excited, and so do I. Nikki is always there when I need a "break". She will come over and play with Ella while I clean my house, or even pick us up to go shopping. I am so grateful for everything she does. She is one of my best friends, and I love her(scary faces and all)!

We had so much fun spending Easter weekend in St. George. We surprised most the family by going down. They were so happy and so were we! Saturday we went to the neighborhood easter egg hunt at the park and had a yummy breakfast. We also went to one of my cousins rodeos, which was really fun. I was a little worried how the "city boy" (Sita) would handle that, but I think he quite enjoyed it. Sunday we went to church and had my Grandma Houston over for dinner, which was nice. I always enjoy visiting with her. We spent the rest of the night with the Given's over at my Aunt Angie's. Here are just a few of the pictures from our travels. We had a very happy Easter!
