So yesterday the girls painted the two main colors on their wall. This morning they painted the second coat of brown and I made the curtain to go over their closet and got it hung up.
So this is where we are at right now. I wasn't to sure about the paint colors that I chose to go with the fabric but I think it will look really nice. I have two pillows sewn also but don't have them stuffed yet.
We are going to put a black stripe where the two colors meet, around the the door and window trim

Tradition is to read the story "Easter Bunny are you for real?". We read the book after we have gone to church, after everyone has eaten lunch and before anyone touches their basket. I want my kids to know the REAL reason for Easter.
This is what happens when you buy the 17 year old candy but no basket. He finds his own!
They eat the candy
And this is the effect it has on them
And he wanted a hat like his big brother

As I sat watching them I couldn't help but think back when I was in first grade doing my own school program.
I actually remember two of them - one had a summer theme with pools or something, the other was a Christmas program.
It's hard to believe that my own children are now repeating the same process.

I crashed before I even ate dinner and slept hard.
So this morning I got up and started packing.
We cleaned out the van, got the luggage packed for the plane trip and headed back to Florida.
The plan was to go back to Ahma and Poppa's house for the night.
About three hours from there the plan changed and we decided (well Rod and someone else decided) that we should just stop for the night in Orlando.
We had gotten a late start, it was later than we had planned on being on the road and we had to be at the airport early for our flight.
So we found a hotel and stayed for the night.
All the girls in one room and all the boys in another room.

We spent a lot of time at church.
It was hot in there.
We left at 1:30 or something like that and they were just getting ready to do communion.
It was hot in there.
We had to leave to feed our hungry kids.
Rod and Gregory went to visit someone in the hospital and I headed back to his parent's house.
I made it there before anyone else so we had to wait for his Mom to get home and let us in.
Fed the kids and waited for Rod and Gregory.
Headed off to his Aunt Jan's house to visit with her since she wasn't able to come the day before.
I fell asleep on the couch while they visited.
We then headed home again as it was late and we were all tired.

Since we were only going to be there for a few days we had a large combined dinner with aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc from both sides of the family who came to fellowship with us. It was a great time to catch up and of course to listen to stories about "Spike".
Since we had all the family gathered I decided to do pictures. Mind you this was not an easy task. The living room was not large enough for everyone to gather for a photo so we decided to do two groups outside. The next problem being that it was dak outside so we got the floodlight out. Some people managed to sneak out before the pictures were taken.
