…it’s time for BAT-MAIL!
I’m back! I’m back! My blog is fixed (I hope!)! Did ya miss me?! So much has happened since I’ve last shared with you! I’ll never be able to fully catch up, but I’ll share some of our favorite summer highlights during the month of September. The biggest, most exciting news, is that we bought a 150 year old farm house out in the county! It’s been like waking to a dream we never knew we had!
And school starts tomorrow. We now have a college freshman, forth grader, second grader and kindergartener in the family. Yesterday a sweet friend surprised us with an ice cream party kit. So here’s how we kicked off back to school—
From God Gave Us Easter:
“I love Easter,” Little Cub said.
“Me too,” Papa Bear said. It’s even better than Christmas.”
“Better than Christmas? Why?”
“Because on Christmas, we celebrate Jesus’s birthday. But on Easter, we remember we get to be with him forever.”
“Forever. That’s why God gave us Easter.”
Thank you HOLLY & KATE & JODI for the amazing Easter boxes and treats!!! Your friendship makes my heart smile.
Easter Egg Mail!
Smash Me: Confetti Eggs!
Eat Me: Chocolate Eggs!
Paint Me: Don’t worry they aren’t real– fake eggs to decorate!
Hide Me: Felt Eggs!
I love mailing these surprise boxes off to special people in my life. I wish we could all be together to celebrate Easter, but at least with these boxes we can pretend like we are creating together! HERE they are all boxed up!
My crew testing out the paint—-
I can’t believe my heart is big enough to hold all the the love I have for this little lady. I danced in the street the day I found out I was having HER (they orginally told me I was having a BOY). I’ve been dancing and smiling and celebrating EVER SINCE!
These last couple weeks have been filled with Larry’s love of St. Patrick’s Day and his never-ending mischievousness. Just in case you are new here and haven’t met him yet… Leprechaun Larry is our beloved leprechaun named after my dad! Leprecahaun Larry, like my dad, is mischievous, creative and kind. And he LOVES LOVES a good joke or two. March just wouldn’t be the same without him!

May God bless you and keep you this holiday weekend. May you feel the joy of His love on St. Patrick’s Day and always!!!
