Happy Easter!

I have had some thoughts swirling around in my head during the nights and the past few days. I'm so grateful to the Lord for what He has done. Until I have more time to write, I'll just post the lines that have been running through my head the past few days. Hope ya'll had a Happy Easter. I'm happy to say, we did finally get a family picture w/ our new addition. :) Eh, 10 weeks old...not bad!

"My sin, oh the bliss, of this glorious thought,

My sin, not in part, but the whole;

Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, oh my soul"

"Living He loved me,

Dying He saved me,

Burried He carried my sins far away,

Rising He justified, freely forever,

One day He's coming, Oh glorious day!"

Digital Pix are fun. Expressions are endless...

Visit w/ Friends...

Invites are unusual for us, unless it's w/ friends that have as many or more kids than us. Ha!!

Got the SOS from my Mom about this picture...rather than re-editing it, I'll just put the disclaimer that my hubby was being goofy. I honestly thought making it black and white would make his hand less noticable. I agree it's a lil' creepy, but I thought it was a good picture of the guys w/ the babies. :)

It's funny to me that when we get together w/ friends it's like a kid-explosion. Didn't we all just have 1 or 2?

My sister and George, Grace and Elliana were down for a visit recently. It was very fun to be with them!
Benjamin gets the chubbiness award, Ellie, wins in the cheek dept. :)
Cousins! They LOVE playing together. Madeline needs feminine influence w/ all these boys around here!

Luv this girl...

Madeline is 2.5 and loves doing things herself. I'm very blessed to have a child that is somewhat self-sufficient. As you can see, she enjoys picking out her outfits. Each day is a new and exciting combo. She's recently had a growth spurt, hence the high-water corduroys. She loves them, but I've had to put them away. He other fav. is the fancy black fur shrug that goes w/ a Christmas dress. Ta Da! She comes out all decked out, completely oblivious and quite cheery. There's something so precious about the 2-3 year old stage...

This outfit was hilarious in person...the pictures don't do it justice. I asked her to go outside, pick up all her dishes and get her rain coat. She happily obeyed and I was pleasantly surprised to find I didn't have to go double check or help her pick up. (now w/ the boys...that's a different story!) She came to the back door like this...

The sunglasses just completed her ensemble. And no, the jacket is not supposed to be reversible. :)

Oh, and I almost forgot...her hair is wildly curly and crazy most days. I'm ashamed to say, but I don't always take the time to fix it, so she looks like a beautiful lil' ragamuffin. :) Gum boots and all! :)
