Payton's 2nd Year Book

Click here to create your own Shutterfly photo book.

I FINALLY finished Payton's 2nd year photo book (just a little behind!)  :)  I was so pumped because I got a great deal on it.  With all my coupon codes, it ended up bringing the total down from almost $100 to only $40.  Score!!

Celebrating Easter

Our Easter celebrations began last weekend at Nana and Papa's house.  My mom had a lovely dinner after church and we celebrated Easter as well as my Grandpa's birthday.  Mom always does an Easter egg hunt for us with clues that lead to our Easter basket.  My grandpa used to do this out on the farm every year, and now Mom has taken it over. 

 On Tuesday Jill brought Fletcher and Brynlee over for our 3rd Annual Egg-Dying Extravaganza!  :)  It was so fun to watch the kids this year.  They really had a good time.  The mommies had fun catching up too. 

This morning we went to church and Sunday School. When we got home, my parents came over and Chad grilled. Payton opened her basket from the Easter bunny which included her first fishing pole!! After lunch, we did a little egg hunt in the back yard. Payton did great getting all the eggs. I think I had put out about 30 or so! :)

 We ended the day with a little sidewalk chalk compliments of the Easter bunny.  What a great Easter!  We sure have been blessed.

Mom's Surprise Party

A few of my mom's friends had a little surprise retirement party for her on March 21. It was a lot of fun. Here are some photos and a video of her walking in. The picture at the bottom is of all the current and retired teachers/employees at the school. Many of these teachers started at Baxter in the mid-70's. Mom is one of the last in this group to retire.
