Inside Easter decore & outside below...

This was an arrangement I've been needing to put together for a while...I got it an auction here in Bergholz. It was from the old hardware store. Kind of hard to really see the basket, but it's real old and has lots of coal dust on it from years of sitting around!! Love stuff like that...

Can you tell I collect frogs? I have angels and frogs all over the place. People keep giving them to me. My very favorite is a frog with angel
This is a younger picture of Ann at Easter! I love putting pictures out!!
It's kind of hard to tell, but our tree has eggs and ribbons and bows on it all in pastel colors for Easter! Doenisha does a good job keeping up with the seasons! Kind of hard ot store a 9 ft Christmas tree, so we enjoy it all year long...


This is my favorite time of the year! I love the resurection story!! My daphodils and tullips are peeking out...My hyasinths have little buds in them. You can't really see very well, but trust me when they all bloom I'll post pictures. I love my flowers!!

My water fountain!!

Donnie found this on EBay for me! I have it here in my office and it is so peaceful to hear the water falling.

What is wrong with Blogger??? No music or slide shows??? UGH:( Is anyone else having trouble?

Family night at Ponderosa w/ Jelly Bean the clown!!

Wow, the county clown is getting better every day! Either that, or Ann is sitting still a little She looks forward to meeting Daddy after work on Tuesday nights after work. Usually on Pay We only have a couple months before we have to start paying for Vanya, so we get a good deal on family night!

Up at 5 a.m...

I'm am currently the Director for a new food ministry we are doing at our church. "Great Food For All" Unfortunately that entails getting up at 5:00 a.m. in the morning, well, it's already 12:00 a.m., so I'm not sure why I'm going to Donnie and I have to take an hour and 1/2 trip to get trained. I think we'll have to keep each other awake in the I'm really excited though. We live in a really needy area, and as some of you might know even if you don't fit into the welfare category, everyone could use a little help in the cupboard!!! Especially if you are raising a growing family. This program is for anyone. It will greatly benefit our church and surrounding area. I'm praying that it will be a source of outreach to maybe bring people into church eventually! I love meeting new people and this will be awesome! Please pray for me as I teach those under me how the program works and get this up and running!!

Circus Crazy (:)

I'm not real sure what's going on with my blog right now, but the slide shows are not working properly, neither is my music. I checked someone Else's blog and it has the same issues, so I guess I'll try to be patient.

Ann hides in her closet with the scisors:(

Well, Mommy cried when we discovered Ann had chopped her hair pretty far back on both sides. There wasn't a whole lot to work with in the back or any way to make it look right, so away to the beauty parlor we went. She told me she wanted the lady to fix it long. I had to explain that wasn't an option. She seems rather broken hearted too. We've had to reassure her that she looks pretty with it like it is. She got into a ton of trouble parents know how that is...later you laugh about it and hope you weren't too "angry" lol She now has a short Bob that they assured me would grow out, not like we had a They braided what was left and cut it for me to keep in her baby book. Then they gave her a certificate for her "first hair cut" taped a little lock of hair on it. We'll get a kick out of it for years to come I'm sure, but her hair was the envy of all the big and small girls alike.

"The Highlands"

enjoy the slide show below...
We very much enjoyed our mini vacation. We went to a cool restaurant on Friday night called TJ's. It's mostly baseball oriented. The food was awesome and very fast! We plan on making a family night sometime and taking the kids to it...pretty Enjoyed swimming and sitting in the whirlpool at the "Springhill Suites Ramada" On Saturday we did a lot of shopping, as the Highlands is mostly a shopping attraction right now. They are suppose to put an amusement park in there eventually. No one is real sure what the hold up is. The first Building in there was Cabella's If you've never been to one, you should go. It's like a museum. Ton's of mounted wildlife and the paintings on the ceiling and walls make it look like you are really in the outdoors! Even if your not a hunter it's cool! Sunday we came home by a round about way...didn't get home till around 6p.m., so we had had a real nice weekend. Donnie's Mom was real nice and kept Ann Marie for us. She also kept Ann's cousin Grace which is the same age, so they could have a play date sleepover...I'm sure she's exhausted... Doenisha and Vanya both went home with their separate friends on the school bus Friday after school. Everyone had a good time! Well I guess I'd better shut up...getting quite won't want to read it all...haha
