Celebrating Easter

HE IS RISEN! What a great reason to celebrate! We spent Easter at the Ranch with the whole crew. What fun we all have together. I count my blessings that Josh and I truly adore both sides of our families, and that the time we spend together is so cherished. Easter Sunday we went to church in Stonewall, TX, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt and of course a delish Easter Lunch. Another great thing about our families is that we all love to eat, and drink and be merry. I think I gained 5 pounds in 3 days with all of the goodies.

On the hunt

Do you think it is more difficult to get a great picture of the 4 grand kids, or our little family of four? I am going to call it a toss up, and say that both are almost impossible. HA!

I don't know anything about it, but I have seen those commercials for the Cloud, where the women adjusts and crops different pictures to make one good one. I NEED that program! I can't even count on Josh to look at the camera.

We had several practice egg hunts, before our official Easter hunt, here is Brody's class hunt

Here is Jaden's class hunt

And of course one with Abby, they happened to having matching Easter baskets :)

And Grandma Webb brought Easter baskets too, filled with enough sugar to kill a small horse. Thanks Grandma!

And we also had a MOPS, Church at Canyon Creek Egg Hunt

Hope all of you had a wonderful Easter too! And that you feel as thankful as I do to have Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, the greatest gift that has ever been given to me.

Live Music

Last night I ventured out with the girls to Carlos N Charlies to watch Alpha Rev & Bob Schneider. It was so fun! Anything I do with my fav girls is fun, but when you live in the Live Music Capital you better get out and enjoy it from time to time.

(We did not cooridnate our matching outfits! Ha)


Last Saturday Josh and I went out with some more of our favorite people to the Oasis, where for the first time I saw Alpha Rev. Their music is like ear candy, and I became an instant fan, so I was so happy when I got to hear them again when they opened for Bob.

The Oasis is so fun and a great way to spend a Saturday night!

Trying T ball

Well we decided to give t ball a try for Jaden. Unfortunately, he did not think this idea was as great as we thought it was. He really had no interest in playing. He went to a total of two practices, and one game. He did like to hit the ball and run the bases a few times during practice, but at the game he refused to hit, run, or play in the outfield. So we called it quits. I am not one for quitting something when you start it, but I signed him up for t ball thinking it would be a fun family event, not a torturous event that he wanted nothing to do with. So, here are the few pictures I took from our first/last t ball game. Notice that Brody was all about it.

Just put me in for Jaden, I'll do it! Jaden marching away from the field

We will try another sport someday, because I think sports are important for many reasons, but I will let Jaden pick it, and tell me when he is ready.

Spring Break 2011

The little boys and I loaded up and headed to Leakey for the entire week of spring break. My mom and dad met us there and we all had a great time. I love going to Leakey because it is a little bit like stepping back in time 50 years. It's just a small charming Texas town. And what is not to love about fun and sun on the Frio River.

Brody LOVES his Papa, and LOVES his Papa's trucks. I think this red one is his favorite. I found a toddler bed set at Target that is vintage vehicles, and it happened to have a red truck on it just like this one. So I am going to take a bunch of pictures with the red truck and blow them up to use as the art in Brody's new big boy vehicle room. I can't believe my baby is going to have a big boy room soon. Gasp! Where does time go? Jaden was the only one who could stand the frigid water. He didn't care, he swam. He also pretended to be a dinosaur while swimming. This picture is him in dinosaur stance.
If Brody's leg was long enough to reach the peddle, he would be driving.
My mom traded in her Yukon for a convertible bug. It's really cute and the boys thought it was fun!
Jaden has grown up over the last year, and is now able to help Papa blow leaves off the porch. He thought this job was sooo much fun. I hope his little worker spirit continues to grow as he gets older.
