Shara's New Look!

Shara got a new haircut and she looks adorable!!! She didn't even tell me that she was going to do it today. She had talked about getting a haircut and we agreed that it would be fun to get a short cut, but then today I came home and she opened the door and...BAM! Shara was there with her new haircut looking better than ever! :)

Happy Easter

Here are some pictures from our Easter. At my parents' house, we had an Easter egg hunt, or a booty hunt (think pirate) according to my brother. Rich and I did quite well because there was money hidden in most of the eggs. Except for in the eggs with the melted chocolate that leaked out the sides of the eggs. Thanks to my mom for the egg hunt!

Rich and I also made sure the Easter Bunny had visited us when we got home. Our baskets were waiting for us when we got home from Ogden. We love Easter!

I just want to tell about a little accident that happened in the school newspaper this week, The Daily Universe. Since this is BYU, the paper usually gives a report on things like General Conference. Well, maybe they shouldn't have done it this week. In Monday's newspaper, there was a picture of the 12 apostles, one of your typical conference pictures. But, it wasn't your regular caption. Underneath the picture, the caption called them, not the 12 Apostles, but the 12 Apostates. Woopsie... That's quite a mistake to make. I really don't know how they missed it.

And So It Begins...

Baseball season (which of course means the Mariners season) has begun. We just wanted to give you a little preview on how we will be watching the Mariners games the next several months. Rich on his computer, because none of the games are on TV in Provo, and me reading a book.

Good News from Siblings!

About a month ago, Rich and I found that my brother Tyson and his wonderful wife Krsytle are going to have a baby in October! Awesome news! The Fredrickson clan is starting to grow! Max will have no excuse to be the only spoiled little grandchild with a cousin on the way (sorry, Carrie and Ryan)! It was funny how Tyson and Krysle told us because they said they had a "snowboard video" that Tyson had been working on. I didn't think much of it because Tyson snowboards almost everday since he teaches lessons. Well, the family was watching a BYU basketball game, and Tyson said that it was time to watch his video. I was a little frustrated because, I mean, it's BYU. The snowboard video could wait. But he put it in anyway, and, behold, there was an ultrasound on the screen! I said, "That's not a snowboard video...." So, that's how they tricked us. Congrats, Tyson and Krystle! They might be finding out whether it's a boy or a girl this week! Can't wait!

Well, even more news. This Thursday Rich and I were with the family at Grandma Farnsworth's 85th birthday party, and there was a slideshow of pictures of her children and all of their families. It came time to show pictures of Scott, Karolyn, and Skyler, and an unltrasound shows up on the slideshow! It took a while for it to sink in, I think, but then everyone in the room started to cheer. I think the only people in on the joke were Rich's Uncle Jeff's family, so it surprised almost everyone in the room. So, another Topeka Nelson is on the way, due in Spetember! (We found out later that the ultrasound was actually of Skyler, but it got the message across just the same.)

Two new nieces and/or nephews coming in the fall! We're so excited!
