I know

I know I haven't written much, but I have been thinking about you. Really I have. I took all sorts of pictures to show you. Turns out most are just variations on a theme so I'll show you the highlights.

This is a bit of the hail that fell into our yard last Friday. We didn't get a whole lot and it was small. Mom and many others got 3" hail and everyone on Mom's block lost at least one skylight. One family on their block lost all of their West-facing windows. Considering that a tornado touched down in Fort Worth, they were lucky. We were seriously spared. The worst we faced was Whataburger not being able to run our card to pay for dinner. Todd had to go back later and pay cash. Yes, they let him take the food on a promise of future payment. I LOVE living in a small town!

This is Hunter playing goalie again. His team has been doing really well and he is continuing to get better and better. He's making a great block in this picture!

This is a "sock bug" I sewed to keep my socks-in-progress ready to travel. It's a blatant copy of someone else's but it turned out cute....and I won't be selling it or anything. For the whole story, check my knitting blog....if you're into that kind of thing. ;-)

Talk to ya'll later!

Happy Easter!!!

We did the Easter thing at our house this year. Since Isaac's b-day is this week and all of Todd's family was headed up to see him, we just went ahead and did the whole holiday thing all at once. All of Todd's local family came and even the Vogts (good friends from New Orleans) got to come!

About 20 people. 10 of them kids. What do you do? You plan lots of outside activties, right? Yeah. It's a great idea until it SNOWS!!! Yup. We had flurries off and on through most of the day. Whatever!

It all turned out these things usually do. We had good food and a fun visit. Later on that evening my family came over. It wasn't purposeful segregation, it just worked out that way. My mom and aunt were down South looking at wildflowers and didn't get back into town until later in the afternoon. My cousin came into town to see my aunt so they all came over for dinner. It worked out nicely. I only had to clean house once and most of what we ate was left over from earlier. How's that for serendipity?

And since my house is already fairly clean, we'll be having company again tomorrow night. Work it, girl!!

I pray your Easter is blessed. It was a bit anti-climactic for us as our big celebration was yesterday. The first thing Josiah whispered to me this morning was, "Mom, the light's on in the living room. Did the Easter Bunny come?"

Oops. No. The Easter Bunny actually forgot to come. We were so tied up in getting things together yesterday that we didn't even think about the family traditions of Easter. The Easter Bunny wasn't here. It was just Todd playing the Nintendo. Just so you know, our kids are not permanently scarred. There was enough swag yesterday that they are well and truly sated.

And today, for Easter lunch, we had Taco Bueno.

Feeling neglectful

I've been blogging some at my knitting blog but not here so I'm feeling a bit neglectful.

I really don't have much to blog about. Life toodles along here. Little bit went for fillings this morning and ended up needing a "mini root canal". Yikes! And on school photo day! Oh well. It all worked out. They fixed him up and his swelling was almost completely gone in time for photos. And we're on a payment plan for the "pulp-ectomy". ew.

While you wait for me to have something interesting to blog about, check out this church:

and tell me what you think.
And because all blogs should have a photo, here's my nephew and brother-in-law at said nephew's 1st birthday party (it was a cowboy party).
