A Spring Poem...

"Flowers" by Hannah Cormier
Flowers are pretty.
Roses are red like apples.
Daisies are white like clouds.
Sunflowers are yellow like the sun.
Violets are blue like blue jays.
Flowers are pretty.Posted by Picasa

Sister Love!

I brought the girls in for portraits recently - this one is my favorite! When they give each other big group hugs like this, they say, "Sister love!" Who would guess that 10 minutes later, they were in the car bickering about which CD to listen to! I guess that's what "sister love" is all about! :)

Happy Birthday, Rachel!

Our little Rachel celebrated her fourth birthday today at a princess dress-up party with her preschool friends. She chose a lovely ensemble in yellow (her absolute favorite color), but wasn't enamored with the high heels, so she just kicked them off! She had a delightful time playing with her friends!

It looks like our little Rachel partied 'til she dropped! The Pooh Bear was a birthday gift, and she refused to let go of the balloon, even in her sleep! Posted by Picasa

Busy, busy time!

April was incredibly busy, and it doesn't look like things will let up any time soon! Here's a quick rundown of the events of the last couple of weeks...

4/18 - We celebrated Hannah's 7th birthday
4/19 - We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary
4/22 - Big Gotcha Day party with Hannah's travel group
4/22 - Hannah's (and Al's) first Daddy/Daughter Dance
4/24 - Digging began to move septic system
4/25 - Septic system moved

And on and on it will go for the next month or so! I will post about these events in more detail as time allows (and as I am able to upload photos). All I can say is that my head is in a spin, but in the very best way! All these things are happy (well, maybe not moving the septic!), my family is well, and we are blessed! That's what counts!

Stay tuned...
