Photo Sunday on Monday again...

but a week late...sorry!

When we had our Easter party at John's last week it was decided he wanted his birthday dinner this last Saturday, so I lost most of my week in a mad dash of spring cleaning. I finally uploaded the Easter photos on Thursday; we shopped on Friday while Dottie was off. After I left for work Friday evening, John called and added some things to the menu, so instead of having a leisurely Saturday to cook, I ended up with 4 more hours of shopping.

Dinner went well, with more than we ate left over for them to take home for yesterday. Sunday I slept in 'til noon, and was sitting here with a latte and getting ready to write a post when the phone rang: it was Laura asking if Bill was here yet...he was coming to hang out for the afternoon and evening with us. That being a big hint to go get some clothes on, I did and then went and mowed and never made it back here again 'til now.

Noel tried posing the kids on their front steps to get a traditional Easter photo, and finally did, but since it was "almost warm" outside and sunny for the first time in days, they had other things on their minds!









The Easter egg hunt went on a bit longer than planned as one egg refused to be found. Talia got a bit bored and decided other things were more fun, good clothes or not!



Uncle Bill was busy helping Caleb:



I didn't realize until I was trying to upload things and turn them all the right way I had over 400 frames between the two cameras...lol!

Tomorrow Dottie is off, I have a vacation day, and it's supposed to be partly cloudy, 68 degrees with the wind out of the south at 5-10 mph. So if everything goes according to plan, finally, we'll be...

Gone Fishin'!

The past couple days have made me weak in the knees...I wish the media would
pay more attention to those dying in Iraq..and quit giving ideas to other nutcases out there.
Thanks for stopping by my blog...

gorgeous kids! you are a lucky man..


And Alan.. you give me too much credit..I get so much from these kids...

I am so fortunate to work with the preschoolers

When Teagan comes in each morning, she runs to me with her arms out to give me a hug...

jen hugs with her whole body!

Jen has Rubinstein taby..that syndrome has not slowed her down a bit... she is a teeny little bundle of love....

no matter how bad my morning... i love seeing our kids...

when they come in.. they are like a gift...lol

then reality sets in when i have to start changing and lifting and they spit food at me...

but still.
trust me, i get more than i give..
but thank you for your kind words.
