It's fun to reminisce about holiday traditions from our childhood, isn't it? But if you're like me, while you might look back on all of those traditions fondly as an adult, there were probably some that you looked forward to much more than others as a young child.
I'll put it this way: the 8-year-old version of Ansen was way more excited about getting presents and candy than going to church or reading Bible passages. My mindset was to get through the boring stuff so that we could get to the good stuff. I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone.
Don't you love spring weather? The growing grass and flowers, the rain showers, and don't forget the lack of ice, sleet, and snow days!

Spring is also a great time to try some new things, like recipes! Kara picked up a couple new ones this past weekend she wanted to pass along.
