Easter 2009

"The great Easter truth is not that we are to live newly after death-that is not the great thing-but that we are to be new here and now by the power of the resurrection; not so much that we are to live forever as that we are to, and may, live nobly now because we are to live forever".
~Phillips Brooks
(My sister in law Alina used this quote on an Easter card a couple of years ago, I really liked it so I thought I'd share)

Birthday Boys

While we were in Moab last weekend, we celebrated Nate, Brian and Dad's Birthday! We had birthday dinner at Pasta Jays (the spinach tortellini is delicious, it's become our favorite stop in Moab). Alina pulled through and whipped up one of her famous Dollar Store Creations Birthday Cake. This years theme was "Fancy Fillys" for our "Fancy" Guys!
Close up of the "Fancy Filly" Birthday Cakes- I think she may be taking cake orders.

Happy Birthday Boys!

Spring Break in Moab

We left the snow and headed South for the remainder of the kids Spring Break. We took the raft and it was warm enough to float the river. The kids loved being on the raft and even came home with sunburns. Brians boys introduced us to some sand sledding. The kids took snow sleds and raced down the sand. They loved the ride down, just not the sand up their noses, in their ears and in their mouths! Our Spring Break began more like Christmas Break but ended nice and warm. The sun was wonderful! Hatalee said she and River fought over who got to sit in back- I don't know why they didn't want to sit up front.
Nathan had to take a turn, but didn't go quite as fast as the kids.

We stopped at this little beach and ate lunch- and drank in as much sun as we could!

Snow for Spring Break?!

What do you do for Spring Break, when you wake up to this?
You take the kids for haircuts and and pray for the sun to come out! Tommorow were headed to Moab, hopefully it will be warm with NO SNOW!

Marens New Smile

Maren has had a loose tooth all week and it finally came out! She was eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast when she stopped and had this funny look on her face. She spit something out of her mouth and it landed on the bar. We looked over and saw Marens tooth laying next to her cereal bowl. I guess that's one way of loosing your tooth. She is pretty excited about loosing her tooth. I keep thinking she's too young to be loosing teeth, but it probably helps when your wrestling with your sister and you get kicked in the mouth.
