Happy Easter!


All I need to know,
I learned from the Easter Bunny!

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
There's no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off of other people's jelly beans.
Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.
To show your true colors, you have to come out of your shell.
The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

May the joy of the season fill your heart.
Happy, Holy,Healthy And Blessed Easter!

Bowl for Kids Sake!!!

We had a great day on Saturday bowling, winning prizes, getting our faces painted, playing mini-golf, seeing the Easter Bunny and visiting with the Vikings Cheerleaders!  Thank you to everyone who helped us raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sister Bowl for Kid's Sake Fundraiser.  Gavin, Kyra, Carley and Reagan raised almost $500!!!  The fundraiser was estimated that the fundraiser would bring in about $60,000 this year after all of the donations were in.  What an amazingly generous commitment to this organization.  THANK YOU to everyone who supported the kids and helped Big Brothers Big Sisters this year!

While we were there the newspaper asked if they could run a picture of Carley and Jed bowling to go along with their article.  I have included the link for that below!

The other day we were out for a walk and I noticed that Carley has freckles that are starting to appear on her cheeks and nose.  I said, "Carley, you are getting freckles on your face."  Carley, "What are feckles."  (Yes I meant to leave the r out).  "Freckles are little dots that show up on your skin, you have some on your cheeks and your nose."  At this point she reached up and tried to start wiping them off.  "Freckles don't wipe off like dirt, they just stay there, but your freckles are really cute Carley."  She just got this big smile on her face and all was right with the world.  She ran ahead to catch up with Gavin and Kyra.  I whispered to Jed, "She will someday hate those freckles!"  So now, every day since that conversation, Carley comes downstairs in the morning, goes into the bathroom and looks into the mirror.  "Mom, are my spots still there."  :-)

Jacque's Baby Shower

We had a baby shower for Jacque a couple of weeks ago.  Some of you have been asking for baby bump pictures of Jacque, so there are some included in here.
