Well howdy pardners....
wondering what's been going on here on the mountaintop?? Life, pure and simple. :) We celebrated Samuel's first "gotcha day"and Gabriella's long-awaited 6th birthday. I abhor spending gobs of money on anything but especially on toys that won't last long in this crazy house, but this time I did good! LOL! We bought her a playdogh cake maker. They all love playing with playdough and she often acts like she is making cookies or cake with her playdough so this was perfect. Everyone has made such beautiful cake creations with it and they play with it for long periods of time....YES, score! :)
There were a couple of warm days before the rain pelted down and the cold returned so we made the most of them by taking hikes in the woods and spending lots of time outside. Living in the woods, we have TONS of leaves and I make it my personal mission to eradicate those leaves from around our home. It really is a safety thing for me because we have rattlesnakes that like to hide in the leaves and brush so when I have a chance I'm outside using the leafblower. Connor and Nolan usually follow me around with their play leafblower and lawnmower to "help me". So cute!
We are heading out to enjoy time with some friends this evening so we celebrated our Easter traditions last night with the little's. We read the last week of Jesus' life, acted it out, and then watched a short video and made "He's Alive" buns. We ended our family time with Veggie Tales "An Easter Carol". Nolan was entranced and was telling me all about those mean guys who hurt Jesus with a stick as I put him to bed. I love how even the littlest ones can understand who Jesus is and what He's done for us.
Tomorrow is Easter with our families and such a blessed time of fellowship and rejoicing for Eternal Life!
Yep, life is all about enjoying the people God has blessed you with and boy howdy we SURE are!!
