Easter 2014

We went to Perry to visit Grandma and Grandpa O for Easter.  The week before we left for Perry,  we carried out our tradition of coloring Easter eggs at our house.  Dave and I colored Easter eggs before we even had children, and I always look forward to doing it.  Looking back over the years of pictures we have of this even I noticed that it looks like Dave and the kids are the ones coloring the eggs and I am not even there since I am usually behind the camera.  So this year we got at least one shot of me and the kids to prive I really was there!


We brought the eggs with us to Grandma's house and spent quite a bit of time one afternoon hunting them and finding them in the backyard.  The Easter Bunny left some baskets on Easter morning and, of course, we got all spiffed up for church.  I love this holiday and the reason for it.  I am grateful that I live relatively close to family that we can share these traditions with.  Such a blessed life!

Zander turns 6

Zander turned 6 on April 10, 2014.  We decided to have a little family celebration on the day of his birthday and then we invited some friends over for a party on the Saturday after his birthday.  Last year we had a friend party for him and hardly anyone we invited could come.  This year we decided to invite more kids so that we would be should to at least have a few there.  And, of course, this year all but one of the kids showed up, and one brought his sister with him.  It got a little wild but was fun.  I always like to have a fun theme for the kids parties, which I sure goes largely unappreciated by the guests.  This year we did a Lego theme and it was one of the simplest themes to tackle that I have done.  Zander had a great time at the party which is the important part, and I can't believe how much my little guy is growing up!  Kindergarten has made him grow up so much.  I love him SO much, funny quirks and all!

Nerd Day

For Dr. Seuss' birthday, the kids got to dress up at school with something different for each day of the week.  Here they are as nerds for Nerd Day.  Dave was bummed that I used a polo shirt as a nerdy shirt for Zander.  I just call it like I see it! Haha!!

Billy Dean

For our Valentine's Day date, Dave and I went to see Billy Dean who came to Price for a concert.  Back in the 90s I was a big fan of Billy Dean and was pretty excited for the concert.  I knew many of the songs that he sang and was surprised when he even sang "I Am A Child of God".  It was awesome!  I am not the greatest photographer, but here are a couple of shots.  I will blame it on the lighting.
