Easter, and southern bound.

Easter was fun.  Inspite of the fact that it was one of the smallest Easter celebrations EVER.  We decided not to plan much because we may have gotten the call to take off to VA Beach. 

Our youngens before church.  Yes, he is wearing shorts & Vans.  He is his fathers son.  I just need to move on.

She danced the afternoon away.  I made her stop for a second and this is her thought on that. lol.

Lilly LOVED popping bubbles too!  She leaped so high, trying to get them before the kids popped them.

Samuel being taught how to dance by Elena.

Well, since we DIDN'T  get the call...the children and I are now packing up to go down south and wait for the grandbaby.  <3  So, very soon... I will be a grandmother.  <3 

And I can't wait to hold that baby in my arms.

Hopefully we won't be there for a month.  lol.

Whoa. Time is Flying WAY TOO FAST

I need to be in here more often.  I will forget what happened in life if I don't.  

And I want to remember and rejoice in the life HE has given to us.  The good, the bad and everything in between.  Thanks be to HIM who is worthy of all praise.  Always.

We returned my daughter to her husband in DC after the shower.  And here are the sisters saying 'till next time.'

And giving the baby a kiss.

And since it was DC, we had to just get out and walk around a bit before going home.

Capitol Building.  

As Elena was going up the Supreme Court steps, she lost her shoe.  Just like Cinderella.  <3  lol.

And for some reason, lately I have been thinking about my father in law alot.  Maybe because my daughter is having a baby, and I know he would have been excited to see this great-grandchild.

Maybe because I see how much my husband still needs him sometimes.

Maybe because he was such a great guy.  Not perfect, but pretty great.

Here is a picture of 3 generations. There was a lot of respect and admiration amongst them.  And love.

SO, any minute now, I am expecting a phone call to run down to VA Beach because someone went into labor.  If she doesn't go into labor before Easter, we ( my mom, the kids & I ) are going to down Monday to wait it out.  John will come down when she goes into labor. 

First grandchild.  I am so excited I can't sleep.  

If I don't make it here before Good Friday and/or Easter, May HIS presence be supreme in your hearts, in your life, in who you are.  Surrender that which is not yours anyway.  And if it has been a while since you left HIS grace...come back Home dear one, come Home.

Some stop the train.

It has been busy.

We were able to bring our daughter here for 2 days, and so, within a 2 week span, we planned a baby shower for her.

And everyone came.

Which is great, until you have to have room for 60+ people in a house. lol.  But it sure was fun and she got loads of good stuff.

But first, let me share a picture of my son; who came by my parents house, and while talking fell asleep.  With Mindy.  Who really likes him.   Playing on the floor:

Fell asleep soon after.

Here are my 2 daughters and my 2 nieces.  Behind all the presents.  Elizzi kept track of what she got ON HER COMPUTER.  Brilliant!!!  I am so old school, I would have just written everything down.

So, the women at church gave her her beloved jogging stroller.  This was the first thing she registered for, because she is already signed up for a 1/2 marathon.

I did suggest she may need other things.  :P

She is so not my child sometimes.

She was so happy, that she MADE herself keep opening other gifts and not play with this one.

My dear friend MADE these!!  Are the cool or what??!!?  And she also got her books books books.  I love her.


Her hat.  <3  

Josiah took a picture of her belly every week, and put it on facebook so we can see her, since she is a million miles away. We took the pictures and put them in order so everyone could see the progress.  :)

Elena was the Hostess.  I don't think she knew it.  lol.  Here she is with her little friends.

The next day, we dropped her off at Washington DC, where Josiah had a conference and they went home.  Which made it all possible.  Because I could not drive a 14 hour round trip to VA Beach.  Twice.  But we can totally do a 7 hour round trip!!

So, later I will post the day in DC pictures, or you would fall out of your chair from boredom from all the pictures in one post.



What are your feeling on 1Corinthians 11:5 - 6?

From our home to yours...

Happy Opening Day!

Let's Go Mets.   :D

Elena decided she does NOT want to be a Mets Fan.

She is opting to follow the Skankees.

I mean Yankees.

Her sister will have a fit.  Not sure how well that will go in this home.  In fact, it won't go well at all.

I promise you I will not spend one dime on ANYTHING Yankees. Gross me out the door.

Oh and by the way, you have to know I am kidding on this crazy day.  Elena is well outfitted with her Mets stuff,too.
