For some unknown reason, we had the HARDEST time trying to get Railie to look at the camera on Easter morning. These are some of our crazy out-takes.

This one cracks me up. She is trying to wink. Love the screwed up mouth. She will have absolutely no trouble putting on mascara.

We went to my parents house in Council for Easter. My mom made the cute dresses she and the girls are wearing.

Emma, hunting for eggs. The snow she is standing on is between 18" - 36", depending where you are.
Railie on the same snow bank.
Gramma, Railie, Ian and Emma.
My own little tradition. I always write the year on an egg with a white crayon before we dye them.
I hope everyone had a great Easter!!

Winter Crazies

Here is what I did to my poor old bookcase. It is about 10 years old, purchased at Sam's club right after Wes and I got married. I used to be oak-ish. They I went nuts and painted it black. Then I pealed off the paint, sanded it and painted it again. Yeah. I decoupaged a book onto the back. I felt really bad tearing apart a book, and a hardback at that, but I had two of them and I think I won't be struck by lightening or anything. I hope. It turned out fairly nifty. Sorry for the bad photo. And for no after shots, maybe later.

Daddy's Helper

We are thinking SPRING around here finally!! We have been trying to get the last of our cabinets installed correctly in the kitchen, and Ian was trying to be daddy's helper.

My son, the inmate...

This is the "Hey look I found food!" face.

These are the three girls in Emma's Brownie troop. She is in the middle. The photo was taken at the Service Unit International Dinner night. The girls chose China, so I made the brocade aprons and we cooked some Chinese food and had fun.
