Family fun

Warning: Picture overload..

After church on Sunday, we went to lunch at one of our favorite places, as a gift from some friends from church. 

Texas Roadhouse!  The waitresses were dancing.

Then we went and hid Easter eggs in the church yard.



After our egg hunt, we went bike riding on the trail.  When we got home, we cleaned out the garage real good, and got rid of some junk!!  While Craig and I were finishing up the garage, the girls got some bubbles and had some fun, and made some messes.  Some how Anna Claire managed to get her bottle of bubbles all in her hair:)

Kyndal helping smash the trash down so the top would shut.  Such a good helper:)

Happy Resurrection Day

So thankful to serve a RISEN Savior.  Thank you Lord for the price you paid, so that I may have eternal life.

We had a wonderful service Sunday.  Our family also had a wonderful day together.  We spent most of it outside. It was absolutely beautiful.

Our sweet, growing up fast, really tall Abby:)

Our spunky, silly, funny Anna Claire:)

Our loving, girly girl, very helpful Kyndal:)

 So thankful to be their Momma

She is almost as tall as me.  Of course, I'm short, but she's only 10.

Very blessed.  Thank you Lord for allowing me to do life with these precious people:)

Birthday Weekend

My birthday was Monday, and we pretty much celebrated all weekend, so it was very nice.  The weather was absolutely beautiful.  Saturday, Craig and I went for a 14 mile bike ride, cleaned our car, and went to dinner.  Our friends kept the girls for us and when we went to their house, Jenn had made a wonderful ice cream cake.

 Let me just say that working on machines in the gym is way easier than doing the real thing outside!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday some friends took us to lunch, then I went for a  walk/run with a couple of friends while Craig took the girls to shop for me:)  When I got home, Craig was baking a cake and the girls were decorating!  We had dinner and a yummy cake.  It was all very sweet!

The girls decorated the cake too!

Monday I went to the gym, then grocery shopped by myself while the big girls did school.  We went to lunch, and to the mall for me to shop with some money and gift cards I got, then we went for a ride/walk/run on the trail as a family!!!

Anna Claire couldn't make it too far before needing a break, so she and I turned around and headed back, so she could make it.  I just walked beside her.  She did a really good job.  When we got back close to the car, Craig and the girls caught up to us and Kyndal didn't want to stop, so I ran with her back down the trail and then home.  

It was a wonderful birthday celebrated with wonderful people.  I am blessed:)

Free Spirit

Thankfully, it seems as though spring has sprung in NH.  This weekend has been beautiful and even hit the low 70s.  It's wonderful.  We haven't been able to enjoy nice (well what I call nice anyways) weather since September!!!  It's very welcomed by me for sure:)

Anna Claire loves to talk and sing.  She is usually doing one of those constantly.  It's very cute most all the time.  She likes to play school and baby.  She really likes to play with Kyndal, but she does play by herself sometimes and talks to her self.  I love to sit and listen to her, especially when she doesn't know that's what I'm doing.  It's the cutest!  I didn't play well by myself as a kid, but Craig said he did!

She was singing and twirling on the deck the other day, so I went and got my camera:)

Ukulele's and a beautiful day

Abby and Kyndal are taking Ukulele lessons every Thursday and they are really enjoying it.  He is teaching them 3 chords on the Ukulele before teaching them on the guitar.  He said it's easier to learn that way.  They practice every day and are learning to play and sing Amazing Grace so they can do it at church.  Chevy is taking lessons too, so they were all playing and singing when she was here.  Then they took it outside:)  Saturday was such a beautiful day.  Very thankful for spring like weather and the beautiful sunshine!

Hope the neighbors don't mind:)

Doing what they call "spa time" (painting nails)!!!
