More Family News

You might remember a post not too long ago announcing the coming of a new grandchild. And that Alison was feeling pretty sick? Well, another announcement - it's Twins!!!  (It looks like two boys. It seems this family can't produce girls:) We are so excited! The kids are excited, but a little overwhelmed by the news. We have every confidence that they will do a great job, just like they do with everything they tackle.

Now I'm thinking of cute matching outfits and even something matching for Tad. Quilts, sweaters, afgans... oh my!

Easter Weekend

Sunshine, warm breezes, spring flowers, and a sweet two year old grandson hunting for eggs. What could be better? It was the kind of weekend that I have been dreaming about all this long, cold winter. We worked (I should say "played") in the garden, raking up the debris, cleaning out the greenhouse, and planning new garden beds. (More about this later.)

We dyed our chicken's eggs with plant stuff and spices. I made a little Easter basket for Tad inspired by one here: and peat pot favors seen here:  I made sugar cookies, a baked ham, and biscuits. Andrew and Alison brought a broccoli salad and twice-baked potatoes. Yummy! We spent the evening outside, hunting Easter eggs, wandering the gardens, and playing kickball with Tad. Like I said, perfect!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
