Instagram {Catching up}

Here is the last month, through the eyes of instagram:

 Brahm loves being outside.  Brahm loves snacks.  When we combine the two, and add a basketball goal, it's AWESOME.

 My favorite Easter morning shot.

 Lily received a preschool book from Grandma Smith and LOVES it.  She is very into "working", and is starting to really like writing letters and words.

 Gazing at puppies at the puppy store.  We love that place.

 We had a beautiful day this past week and went to the park one morning.  Lily and Brahm had so much fun and didn't stop long enough for me to take one picture--so these are all action shots.

Oh, and P.S...Brahm discovered mud.

And he "reads" to us now.  And this would be a good point to share his favorite song currently:  "ah-ruh--ruh-ah-ah-ah....NO!"  Translation:  "Hide it under a bushel, NO!  I''m gonna let it shine!"
 Oh, and he likes to sit on his potty chair.  For 3 seconds.  I have a feeling this boy may be a ways off still....

And finally, our garden.  I can't WAIT for the weather to STAY warm so that we can get all our stuff in.   We have teeny lettuce plants just poking's only the beginning!  I {heart} gardening.

Easter 2013

Our Easter was extra-special this year because we had some extra people!  Denita (my cousin from Canada) and Tommy, Courtney's friend, joined us so we were one LARGE group of people!

We started with Easter baskets before church...

Then, the obligatory pre-church pose...

Next, to Grandma and Grandpa J's for an Easter Egg hunt and supper, as well as tons of fun with cousins and other family!

 (Brahm meeting Tommy.....)

Oliver and Asher's birthdays are only 3 days apart, so we also celebrated their days!

We are so thankful for an amazing family--and hoping that someday, we'll all live closer!!!  :-)
