Hyrum's 2nd Birthday

For Hyrum's second birthday, April 17th, only myself and my mother sang to him. Poor little guy. It was a rather dull birthday, which I kind of felt bad about. He did get Killer, as you saw in the previous blog, and he got a cozy coup, which he loves very much. So all in all, it wasn't too bad. At least he got something! It was nice to have at least my mom remember him on his big day!
I chose this cake for him... as I was buying it, the guy told me that Steve, the guy that used to be on Blue's Clues, killed himself. I was horrified by this. Is that true? Anyway, the cake was still good. Sorry Steve...

Our New Addition

A couple weeks ago we became the proud new parents of a male Crowntail Betta Fish. He is a beautiful blue color with bright red fins and tail. Hyrum is in love with him, always wanting to just sit all nice and watch him swim. I never thought I'd be so enamored with a fish, but I enjoy him greatly. I take super good care of this fish, and I hope he is around for a long time. And the lovely cuddly name for this fighter fish? Killer. So Laura, Hyrum, Adelaide, Lola, and Fur welcome the newest addition to the family, Killer.

Our Easter

Here is Adelaide with her basket.
She really got into the spirit by wearing her bunny ears.
Hyrum did not.
And again, my little darling.
Here they are checking out the goods on Easter morning.
It was fun putting together a little basket for them both. I've decided my tradition on Easter will be to give them books instead of toys. We started that last year with Hyrum. It was a good day, beautiful weather and very peaceful. It is nice to know that even though the Easter Bunny didn't bring me a basket, my Savior not only died for me and us all but rose again so that we can live again too. Happy Easter!

Our Nutter Neighbors...

So recently my downstairs neighbors moved, which made me sad, because they were some friends of mine. And in moved a major nutter. His snoring is so loud it keeps me up at night. I always end up turning on our bathroom fan to whitenoise him out. And bright and early this morning I was woken to a rearing rendition of "Memories" from Cats the musical. It was quite an interesting take on the song, I assure you. I'm wondering if he has any idea I can hear him so well. But at least until he figures that out I'll be treated to such wonderful musical numbers!
