Happy Easter!

God Bless you on this Resurrection Day!

We have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to with God and Heaven.

The weather is cold and cloudy. It drizzled all the way to Mass. We arrived late and had to stand. Well, Geoff & the kids sat on the choir steps in the back of the vestibule. The church was packed. Even with all the extra added chairs, there were so many people left standing.

Easter around our family is big gift giving time. Just like Christmas.
I thought I took a lot of pictures, but I guess not.
I posted before about the kids getting Heelys. Derek got a skateboard instead (but I'm keeping the Heelys for another holiday, since I got them on sale)

We got a few videos: Barbie-Magic of the Rainbow, Eragon, Iron Man

Some books on DVD: Harry the Dirty Dog, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Miss Nelson....

Hanna Montana CD, playdough in domes, and Derek got Hot Wheels cars, track & monster truck.

Mom was here with her dachshund, Moxie. Here's Moxie & Coco poking their noses under the gate to see the Egg Hunt:
Our street does an egg hunt in our yard for young kids and the older kids in the neighbor's yard every year. So mom loves to come to that and see all the kids - -they grow up so fast. We had 4 year olds & Up and only one 1 year old. So it was fun the kids all knew what to do.
We made it through the egg hunt and hurried to take the annual picture of all the kids of the street on the neighbors wall. Just as everyone headed home, it started to drizzle rain again; and did so for about an hour.

We did a very casual dinner since now it is only us and mom. Prime Rib, Ham, Spaghetti for the kids, broccoli, baked potatoes, I had a baked sweet potato.
My brother, Brian called in the afternoon and said they had their egghunt in the snow in the morning. He now lives in New York state. But by 6:30 p.m. it was melted, even though it was still snowing, in the evening.
Katherine skated around all afternoon getting the hang of Heelys. Derek was riding his bike and the kids played tag well into the darkness.

Thank goodness we homeschool. It is so nice that the kids can play as late as they want and go to bed when they want and BEST of all, we get up whenever we want.
