This post is dedicated to a wonderful woman whom I love and am truly blessed to have, my grandmother, Audrey Ehmann. Grandma, you have been an example of godliness, of thankfulness, of contentment, and faith. You have displayed for me how to love my husband and children and how to impart to my family a spirit of thankfulness to God. You have given me encouragement in times of hardship and confusion and have lived out before me a humble reverence for our Lord and Savior. I love you with all my heart! We send our love, hugs, and kisses. I wish we will we could all be with you today to celebrate. I guess we will have to imagine Ethan in the closet, pulling out all the toys, Luke knocking over all your pretty things, while pushing your walker around the house like a mad-man, and sweet Kate spitting up all over your shoulder. See what you're missing! We love you! Happy Birthday!

He is RisenDiving into the Easter basket - who needs pants anyway?

We got to church and found that Luke had a twin (actually there was yet another little boy that had the same vest in Sunday School, but I did not have my camera.)

Here's a peek at our Easter egg coloring festivities

And the grand finale... Ethan tells the Easter Story

We're Back!!!
Our computer has returned from it's rather lengthy stay in the computer hospital. It had a condition that was not easily diagnosed, therefore, not easily (nor quickly) repaired. For now, good ol' Dorothy (the affectionate name I just, at this moment, gave her) is running smoothly. I am looking forward to catching up on the blogging world. Here is a peek at a family day we had a few weeks ago.

A Petting Zoo Comes to Town

Awwww! "I wanted to be eaten", says Luke

1st stop... food

A napping kangaroo

This is a "unicow" VERY strange!

Rides, Rides, Rides!
Horse ride

Train Ride

Airplane Ride

And... Elephant Ride!!

And, of course, a souvenir to remember the day!
