It’s been a whirlwind day and weekend for us, probably a little too busy but here are some pictures–the kids with their baskets (notice how Tobin has Mari’s shoe on!), looking for the Resurrection eggs, playing drums before church, dressed in their best, coloring Easter eggs & having birthday cake (Kelly’s birthday was yesterday too). Hope you all had a wonderful day.
Let us not forget to thank our Lord Jesus for His saving work on the cross.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
Or in Mari’s singing voice “He’s not dead, He’s alive, He’s not dead, He’s alive!”
Today we had a belated Christmas Eve party at my parents house (otherwise known as the homestead as my Grandpa was born in this house). Since Grandpa was in the hospital, we weren’t able to have our annual Christmas Eve party. There were 87 people and 1 dog in attendance, of course that’s not even close to everyone. Grandpa has 10 kids, 33 grandkids (i think), over 40 great grandkids (I’m not sure), and at least 2 great, great grandkids! We had an Easter Egg Hunt, we had to divide it up into 3 groupings to accomodate all the kids (400 eggs!!) and lots of food. The picture is of many of the great grandkids in attendance, and the second pix is my nephew Kashton snuggled up with my dear Grandpa:)
We aunts & uncles always tease him saying, “look what you started Dad”, he says “Mary (my Grandma) always wanted a big family”. I think she got her wish.
Glad I don’t have a picture–aren’t you:) Well, after a couple days of needing to and holding it, and having a few accidents, he pooped. I took Mari to gymnastics and Kelly was in the basement with the boys (the place where all our kids like to poop for some reason). We have a small potty seat down there and Ez was without pants. Kelly was in the other room doing something with golf clubs when Ezra yells “Daddy, there’s brown stuff in there”. Kelly didn’t know what he was talking about and then realized and came running. There it was, in the potty seat even! They brought it upstairs and flushed it. Then Ezra got to eat a rice krispie treat that Grandma had made with them this morning (she was watching the kids while I was at work). I think he was dry all day too! I’m not sure, I’m much less concerned this time around–maybe that’s why it’s going well:)
