Monday in Pictures

We had a FUN Easter weekend here at the troops.
Well, actually, we spent most of it at the Farm!
Grandmother brought ingredients to make Resurrection Cookies.

We celebrated Son's (#4) 9th birthday!
I always let the birthday kid pick their meal and dessert for our family celebration.
He picked lasagna for dinner and root beer floats for dessert.
And no boy's birthday is complete without Legos!

We took a lot of Ranger rides - even though it was chilly.
(They don't wear helmets on the Ranger, but Little Man and Daughter (#7) LOVE to put on the four-wheeler helmets and just SIT - waiting for a ride!)

We had a glorious Easter back at home, with early service and a quiet afternoon.

Here's the Lily that my Daddy brought me last week. Isn't it pretty?

Later, we went to my parents with my brothers and all of their family for Easter dinner.
In the rain!
We still have a big hole in the wall in the dining room.
(for the soon coming hutch)

We got a gift from Grandmother of a BIG world map and plastic to cover the dining room table. We are having FUN finding things on it and deciding who gets to sit by Antarctica every night.

After we got back from the farm on Saturday, we reorganized the garage.

Moved all of the coats and shoes and backpacks outside - to create more space in the laundry room.

So nice.

Of course, this morning it looks empty with everyone at school.
And here are the two little ones.
Watching Curious George.
While I blog.
It's their favorite 7:00 AM pastime.
As soon as the big kids leave for school, Little Man runs in the house saying, "George, George."

And it's time for me to get going, too.

The dishwasher and dryer are humming, George is long over and the grocery store is calling.

Happy Monday, Friends!

I pray you had a blessed Resurrection Sunday, celebrating the hope of eternal life that we have in Jesus Christ.

He lives!

Hey Sweet Friend would you please ask Sweet Grandmother where she got that map???? I have been looking ever so long for one that big . . . thanks! Love the pics from the farm and the kids watching, George . . . so sweet. Can't believe B is getting so big. Have a great day and tell Grandmother thanks for the info!

Sounds like you had a busy but great weekend! I love all the pics! I'm so sad we didn't get to stop and see ya while we were in town. Hopefully next time!

I've been wanting to do that exact thing -- a map on the table! My kids love looking at maps and globes! I've seen many different maps on ebay, but now we need a table to put one on! LOL!

Where did you get the map? We have small placemats that have the world on them and they love them. What a great idea!

Good idea about moving the coats outside. I wish I had a garage to move them too.

One of these days I will actually make those resurrection cookies.

Glad to see you at the Easter program. Hopefully I will get pics up today of our Easter.
