Happy Easter!

Update on the Neighborhood egg hunt...

920 eggs,
4 teens hiding eggs,
26 children hunting,
25 adults and teens watching,
over in minutes.....

First year in the pouring rain...
all 51 were inside
opening eggs,
drinking coffee,
and munching on goodies.

crumbs everywhere.

Truly an exhausting blast...
and I can't wait to do it again next year.

Today a nice quiet afternoon today at Grammy and Papa's house...

Mark is holding Carl, which is why he is laughing hysterically....Mark is 6 foot Carl has a ways to go....
Look closely, I think I'm shrinking! I'm wearing heels...and Carl is still taller than me....

Happy Easter Everyone!

  7. Hey Julie,
    Thanks again for another sweet comment. I bet you are doing a fantastic job yourself, but let me know if you need any design help for your "all girls" room! :) Have a great day!

  8. Dear Julie, thanks for your lovely comment and for sharing a bit of your story as well. You made me cry, because going back, I couldn't even bee here with my kids. We never know what goes in people's minds! You have a beautiful family! I wish you all the happiness!
    Love, Li :-)

  9. What a beautiful family! Thank you so much for your sweet comment about our little Stanley. The vet called to let me know that he's in surgery right now. I just keep praying for him.

  10. Sounds like a great day the photos!!

  11. Can't believe you had 51 people inside your house! WOW! Love the photos & yep your son is on his way to 6'6"!!

  12. Wonderful Easter photos! And I hear you about the egg hunt! I put on an egg hunt for the kids in our city. It's a ton of work filling 1800 eggs, but the joy I get when I see all those kids scrambling to pick up eggs, I start thinking about the next year! Good for you for giving kids a wonderful childhood memory! And my oldest son is now the same height as I am. How did that happen so fast? I can't get over looking him in the eye. I know exactly how you feel!

  13. You have a beautiful family, hope you had a great Easter!
