Oh, I Have a Blog??

Hello?  Hello... is this thing working??

Well.  Did you think I was gone forever?  Me too!!

 A great big thanks to all of you who have sent notes of inquiry or encouragement.  I never set out to take this long of a break, but life, being what it is, has a way of consuming all my time!  Rest assured I thought of you all often and have missed blogging terribly.  I am doing my best to keep all my plates spinning... fortunately Mother Nature helped me out today by providing a snow storm that allowed a day of unexpected free time.  God bless the snow day!!

Since so much time has passed since I last posted, I'll just let you know that Christmas was lovely, Valentine's was sweet, and Spring Break was a very welcome... break.  With that being said, I will just show you our Easter celebration in an {egg} shell...

Believe it or not we had to wake our kids up at 8:30 on Ester morning.  I guess that is the reality of having older kids - some of the enthusiasm wears off when the 'magic' is gone.  Even though our older two play along for Daniel's sake, something changes. :0(

It was our year to spend the holiday with Todd's family, so after baskets were found and eggs hunted here, we headed to my in-laws.

A great day was had by all.  My in-laws know how to do a holiday up!  There was an all family egg dyeing party Friday night where more than 60 eggs were dyed and tons of pizza was consumed.  On Easter Sunday there were baskets for everyone and a traditional meal fit for a king.

I tried to tell my mother-in-law that she didn't need to go to all that work. The adults don't need baskets, we can bring more for the meal, etc.  She wouldn't hear of it. Not a bit.  Both my in-laws insist that the memories that all the kids are making right now are priceless and will be the ties that bind them long after they have grown and are living their own lives.  And I have to say, I think they are right.

I am amazed that all 13 cousins, from age 17 to 18 months get along fabulously.  There is never a fight or a fuss - ever!  The older ones are always helping the younger ones - whether it is hunting eggs, playing soccer or washing hands for dinner.  I've never seen anything like it!!

We are blessed and I am so thankful!!
