Ohhh The Love!

Ohhhh the love of a PopPop for his little girls! They helped make it a joyous Easter!

Easter love: Marley, Tom, Layla and Brent

Brent and the girls went to church with us this morning and then returned to our house to hunt for Easter baskets.

Layla found the first clue! The hunt for the baskets begins!

"Read it! Read it!"

"We have to go where???"

"Poor JoJo has to keep chasing us all over the house! Who hid these clues anyway???"

"Back upstairs! Here Layla! Read it!"

"I wonder how many more messages are hidden? I want my basket!"

"I FOUND MINE!!!" It's under JoJo's sink! (What a mess!!!)

"What's this? One last message in the bottom of the basket! It says to check out the washer and dryer!
Oh we have to do the laundry???"

"Ohhhh! Pillow Pets!!!!!"

It was such a gorgeous day, we took a walk up the hill.

Ohhhhh! The Love!

Twas the Day before Easter....

Layla and Marley are ready for the egg "hunt" to begin!
This has been a very difficult week but we made it through. Today the sun came out and the earth warmed up. It was a sign of good things to come.  Some day we'll all look back and realize that everything happens for the best. Thank goodness for a strong loving family support system.

Trinity (UMC) Kids

Today, being Palm Sunday, was a special day at Trinity UMC. After the 1st service, the children all met in the fellowship hall to experience different aspects of Jesus' life during Holy Week.  We began with waving palms and began the rotation of centers.

The children saw foot washing.

This group experienced the communion of the Last Supper.

It's fun to be silly at activity time!
They walked on the road leading to the cross.

Michelle Beyler "guards" the snacks.

Layla and Marley enjoyed the centers! Much energy goes into preparation for this kind of activity and those teachers and volunteers can be commended for their hard work!

2 years old!!!

"I LOVE my birthday presents!"

"My card is just sooooo cute!"

"I'll share my juice with you Aunt Dizzy."

"I'm glad that Mommys can come into the bounce house with me!"
"How high can you jump Nicholas?"

"Is Blake the Captain of his ship?"
"Don't be sad Marley."

"Don't be sad Blake. Aunt Dizzy will make you better."

Back at Layla's house, Nicholas can only dream of owning his own DS like Laylas.

"What is this stuff?"

"I can do it myself!"

"I think I can do it myself....."

"Ymmmmm. I DO like it!"

"What are these silly people doing with my hands???"
