I know I am very late posting about Easter, but I had some cute pictures that I wanted to share.

On Saturday the girls colored Easter eggs. I just gave them some eggs & crayons and they colored away. Here is Jaycee coloring her eggs with her most serious egg coloring face on.

Here is Brooke, posing for her Easter egg coloring shot.

"Hold your eggs up so that I can take a picture!"

Shortly after the egg coloring began, Jaycee got a brilliant idea.

"Look, an egg on a stick!"
(She had fallen on her face a couple days before this, which would explain the red, scratched-up nose.)

Sunday morning, the Easter bunny had left some goodies in our baskets. The girls were very excited about that. After church that day, we went over to my parent's house. The kids had a little Easter egg hunt & we had a delicious Easter dinner. Here are the kids after their egg hunt. From left to right there is: Brooke, Gabby, Julien, Addison, and Jaycee. Addison is upset about something! Brooke and Jaycee are mine & the other three are my brother & my sisters.

Here are Brooke and Jaycee in their Easter dresses. I love it when they match!

Jaycee got very excited when she discovered there were goodies in her egg.

We tried to get a family picture, but the kids were not having it. It didn't turn out very well, but here we are. We had a very nice day. We hope everyone else had a lovely Easter too.

Earth Day Memories

For earth day I thought it would be nice to post how we have done our little part to support the destruction of nearly 40,000 trees. So just sit back, relax, and we'll take a little trip down memory lane.

Here is our neighborhood pretty much as it looks today, with the exception that there are a lot more houses south of the wash.

Here it is December 30, 2004. We just moved into our new house a couple months ago and are still enjoying our two roomies J and C. (j/k guys . . . but you know its the truth . . . ok just joking. . . except for I'm not . . . ha I got you that time didn't I . . . but seriously it was a small house for all of us)

October 18, 2003. Genevieve and I started dating 5 months ago. I think she's a keeper!!

And here is our future home on July 26, 1992. I'm in like 2ND grade, a thousand miles away. Isn't it crazy. Each one of those little dots is a pecan tree. If you can guess how many there are you will win a prize. I counted 39,689, but I might have missed one. Try it!

P.S. Don't get too sad on earth day, we still have a couple of those trees behind our house where we run a wildlife preserve for the not-so-endangered giant barking crow. It's true!!

Two Things

There are two things I love about this girl in the morning:

1. Her happiness.

2. Her hair.
