Easter Sunday

Our Easter Princess! Never has a girl more appreciated a new dress than Evelyn!

~Easter Bunny Saturday~

This is my first attempt at a video--Oliver's first bath without the baby tub. The commentary is something to be desired, but the subject is exceptionally sweet! Enjoy!

Look who's sitting up? Oliver loves his new found independence!
Kent is perfecting his skills at checkers, he is very good at seeing his moves and others moves before they are played!
Evelyn experimented this weekend with real nail polish and discovered it doesn't come off with water! She painted her feet (bottom and tops), hands (bottom and tops), knees, arms, eyelids, nose, lips, walls, and floors. She was practically bathed in nail polish remover. Luckily for Michelle this happened on Aaron's watch! Aaron has been working hard at removing wallpaper upstairs. He and the kids are trying to make maple syrup. We have one maple tree and they put two taps in it. It takes 40 gallons of sap to boil down to 1 gallon of syrup, the trick is not burning it!

Global Warming?!

To all our global warming friends--we love you!
If you could send some of it our way and melt the snow
we would appreciate it. It was -25 yesterday and I
felt like I was getting frostbite inside the house.
We are close to breaking all snowfall records
in St. J this winter. Lucky us!!!
The really fun part of all the snow is the
resulting mud season in late March and April!
OK, I will stop complaining. We do love living here
and are reminded of it each May when the dandelions
cover the fresh green grass in the fields.

Aaron asked me to take this photo. (If you look to the far left,
even with Aaron's head, you will see the very top of our light post).
So the loving wife that I am, I ran out in my robe and bare feet
and took it fast. Sorry for putting that image in your
minds. Happy first day of MARCH!
