Small Group Easter Egg Hunt

We hosted our Small Group Easter Egg Hunt, and as you can see, when you add all our kids

to the mix, we are not very small. It was a wonderful morning of fun and friendship. The kids listened to the story of the Resurrection Eggs before having 2 separate hunts - 1 for 2 year olds and under and 1 for the older kids. We are so grateful for the friendships we have in our small group and for times like this when we can all be together.

Our 1st Spring Picnic

One beautiful Spring day we took the little 2 to Botanical Gardens for a picnic lunch. Megan and Anna both enjoyed the beautiful flowers and the walk through the gardens!

Anna's 1st trip to the Dentist

Anna did a fabulous job on her first trip to the dentist, couldn't be prouder. She really enjoyed getting to watch mommy have her teeth cleaned!

Our Little Pistol

Somewhere in March, Megan started to develop little curls all around the bottom of her hairline and a slight tint of red is noticeable in her hair....well, she's got the personality to go with it. She is quite a little pistol. She gets in to just about everything, and I mean literally gets in as you can see from the pictures. She loves and lives life to its fullest. She is quite the giggler and babbles endlessly despite making no sense at all. She is absolutely the perfect ending to our family, bringing quite a different personality to the table!

1st Grade Bible Dedication

In the Spring, Erin received her 1st Grade Bible and had it dedicated at church. She was looking forward to this day for a long time. Now that she can read, she enjoys reading her special Bible every night. We are so thankful for her dedication to learning more about the Lord!

Megan is a Walker!

About 3 weeks ago Megan took the plunge and became a full time walker. She is most often seen carrying a purse as she walks around the house in circles. She is always on the go and rarely sits down. We love our little busy bee and have so much fun with her!

Megan is Free!

Megan's arm healed perfectly and she was able to have her cast removed on March 1st. She took it like a pro and didn't cry a bit. She has thoroughly enjoyed having full use of her arm again, and mommy has too! Her cast did help speed the process of her learning to walk. She is a full time walker now and in to everything!

Poor Megan....

On Monday night, January 31, an unfortunate event happened. The only witness to this event is Big Sister Anna, and she ain't talkin! So we'll never know what transpired on that fateful night in the playroom, but we do know how it ended. Megan fractured her forearm in 2 places. It was a long day at the doctor on Tuesday with about 10 grueling xrays. The diagnosis was clear. Luckily the orthopedist got us right in and she was casted within an hour. We chose purple for her cast because it has been deemed her favorite color. Despite the tears preceding the cast, she has been as happy as a bee since getting it on. She hasn't discovered how to crawl with it yet, but is contemplating walking instead. I predict she will be walking within a week. Again, she is a little trooper and it's so sad, but so cute. She finds joy in banging the cast on items to make loud noises. Whatever makes her happy at this point is okay with me! I love her to pieces and am just so sorry she has to go through this. I think she is going to be the closest we get to experiencing life with a boy!
