With the weeds in full bloom, the kids have been bringing me lots of “flowers.” Funny enough, these weeds actually add a bright little touch to my kitchen that I have quite enjoyed. Amazing how a gift from a child, regardless of content, can be so sweet and beautiful.

Easter March 25, 2008
What would Easter be without a good ole Easter egg hunt. We had lots of fun searching high and low in Granny’s yard for all sorts of hidden surprises.
His sisters where happy to pose for this post-adoption ceremony picture.

Today I had the pleasure of taking both Madison and Lillie to the mall with my mother to shop for their Easter dresses. After a couple of hours, we finally managed to tear ourselves away and head home with a little more than just Easter dresses. (Thanks Mom!) On the way home, Madison and I were talking about her bag of clothes and she kept saying, “Don’t tell Dad, I want to surprise him.” As soon as we arrived home, she ran to her room, shedding her clothes on the way. A couple of minutes later, she remerged from her room to show off her new Easter dress for her Dad. She giggled and twirled for him while he OOOOD and AAAHD over her. I love standing back and observing these moments and it made me think of this song.

Lillie Grace is 8 months old! March 2, 2008
We decided to try some solid food this week thinking that she wouldn’t like it, but boy where we wrong! She devoured that cracker like a champ. In fact, she ate three crackers, and would have eaten more had we not put an end to it. Growing up is so much fun (and yummy too!)
Tonight while I was helping her get ready for church tomorrow, I asked Madison what her favorite part of the day was. She said that she liked getting to put on her helmet and use the bat to hit the ball. She said that she loved T-ball but didn’t always like having to bend over with her glove to the ground because it made her legs hurt, but that she would keep doing it because it was good excercise. We look forward to the season ahead and probably will have lots of T-ball posts.
