{ Easter 2016}

Here are pictures we took on Easter. I love Easter and the Resurrection. Because of the Resurrection we have Life. There would be no Christianity without the Resurrection!
 The Easter Garden centerpiece we did with a cross, a stone, and flowers. We like to go forage for the stuff. It is a meaningful object lesson for the children 

 Working on dyeing Easter eggs at home.

 I love all the pretty pastel colors 

 The beautiful flower I got for our house, and a cross on the window seal.

{ Early Spring Outfit pics }

Here are a couple of early spring outfit pictures and random pictures. By this time Jasmine was getting around pretty well around furniture, as you can tell!

{ Our Spring Break Trip 2016 - Louisiana }

In the Spring we went down to Louisiana to visit my family, and we had a great time! We got to eat fresh boiled crawfish, enjoy the beautiful spring weather, visit with my Grandparents, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, and a cousin-in-law. I got to meet one of my little cousins for the first time! Eric got to go fishing with my Grandpa, and I got to go to a great used book sale with my Grandparents, and even got my picture on the front page of the Lake Charles newspaper at the book sale. It was a fun time!

 Samuel and Naomi swinging on the nice swings my Paw Paw made them.

( Late Winter pictures of 2016)

Here are some pictures of our life from late winter of this year. I've had a  lot of computer problems this year, so am trying to just now, get somewhat caught up on my blog.



 Naomi enjoying playing with her paper dolls. She loved these! 

 A princess picture  Naomi and I colored 

 This was from a coloring book I got from Melissa and  Doug for her for Christmas
