Easter Week Happenings

We have four birthdays in a month, beginning with Isaac and ending with David - whew.  This is always one of the busiest times of the year and with Easter being in this time frame it makes it even busier!  Here are some glimpses of our week.......

The boys enjoyed the traditional egg coloring. Ignore the crockpot - that was for later in the day!

 Ignore the clutter in the background.......memories are more important than picking up! - most of the time!

My rose bushes are just about to burst with color!

Here's Rachel, studying out on the porch.  She declined to be photographed from the front side.

Snowball, the cat, continues to think he is a dog.  He loves to roll over on his back to have his tummy rubbed. I never in a million years thought I would like cats, but the several that we have had  over the last few years have been really snuggly and fun!

We had a big storm front move in and ended up with half an inch of rain!  Lightning, thunder, rain, and yes......HAIL are not the norm for April in Arizona!

 We went to the rodeo grounds bright and early Easter morning for a sunrise service and Easter Egg Hunt.  Yes, it was muddy from the big rain, but we enjoyed watching a bit of the high school regional rodeo before we headed off to church.  And......we had a phone call from Jonathan, in Germany, which was an added bonus to the day!

We were facing due east, right into the morning sun, but you can see the rider on a bucking horse!

Boy, Joshua, sorry I cut your head off!

We have Rachel, Joshua, and David all having birthdays over the next two weeks.  AND, the big exciting news around here is that my parents are moving to Tucson from Florida!  We can't wait to have them closer and to be able to see them more often!
