Easter Egg Hunt

Our neighbor bought some ducklings to raise. They are adorable.
We had an Easter egg hunt with our nieghbors down at the pond in back of our house.

We keep trying to get a good picture of everyone. It's a little tricky! I think we are getting closer!

The Finished Eggs

Decorating Eggs

Watching the dye pellets fizz, so exciting! Decorating Easter Eggs is a highly anticipated event at our house. Our neighbor friend joined us for the fun.

A relatively low number of eggs were broken this year because mom finally got smart and used plastic cups! Why did it take me so long to think of that! Still a few were dropped from such a height that they would have broken no matter what kind of cup the dye was in. Ahh, the fun of decorating eggs. It's no fun if you don't break a couple.

Jonah's Birthday

Jonah's birthday was in March. He loves Indiana Jones so I made him an Indiana Jones (lego) cake. This was my first time working with fondant. It turned out ok, but cake decorating is not my favorite. Jonah liked it and Sam had fun helping me decorate.


There goes Bekah, she's awesome!
Cousin Sophie went bowling with us. It was her first time! A few times that ball was going so slowly that it stopped in the middle of the alley and a worker had to come and get it out! It was just too funny! There was also a fair amount of lofting from everyone.

Jonah wanted to do it himself, but Grandpa was standing by just in case!

Sam's first time bowling also. He also wanted to do it himself and did a pretty good job!

Bekah's Birthday

We got a new computer and I can't figure out how to do some things on it, like load pictures! So needless to say, no picture with this post. I just wanted to say happy birthday to my little girl who isn't so little anymore! She is an awesome person, good at music and art and has a very creative mind. She is sweet to her brothers and really helps me out around the house. I am so thankful for her!
